Wow, it's been a long time since I've been back here and I'm just blown away with the new pics that have been posted.

I liked some of the FSX pics too but they make me sad because after switching from Win7 32bit to Win7 64 Bit, I had to uninstall FSX and since then, I can not re-install it. I keep getting told that it's already on my PC and so won't complete the install and I can't get it to fix what it thinks I have because it's not installed :/\\!!

In the spirit of good will and peace to all men, I decided to fire up Rise of Flight, update it, apply the 'SweetFX' app that people have been talking about (on simhq) and see how my Pup skills are fairing.

First tried with a Dr. I, but the smug sod refused to come down to my level to play, so I told him where to go and stalled into the river.

So, something a little easier and a bit more willing to play was required, cue the old faithful Eindecker:

A bit too much HDR I think, but that's something I can tweak later.

That, on the other hand, is going to need a bit more than a tweak *wince*

One thing the Pup really drums into you is Boelckes third rule, one small Vickers gun and not a great deal of ammo means every shot has to count.

Ouch, that's gotta hurt...but probably not for long...hopefully...

Number three proved a slightly more nimble opponent, but still went for low level turning battles...

Which are generally my speciality...

A better ending than his kameraden.

By the time number four arrived I was down to throwing rocks at him, and then sure enough, in a pass, off came my prop. So it was time to play gliders. Not that bad a landing if I may say so. :yep:

Obviously, the Eindecker is a relatively easy target vs the Pup, but I needed something not too challenging to ease me back into flying the old girl in combat. :yep:

Nice one Tarjak. Hey Oberon how is the SweetFX mod?
Its been awhile since I've taken the ol' Bristfit out in the campaign.

Here comes the flight lead, wonder if he'll be mad since I landed before he did?

It's nice, but a tweakers paradise, will probably be a while before I hit the 'sweet spot' that has it how I want it, but it is quite nice. :yep:

Channel map and the Felixstowe will be released today! Though not available for the Career mode yet, it will be interesting to fly around and enjoy the British coastline! Pics will soon come for sure! :D

Oooh, I shall wait for pics before buying, but if it's anything like the beautiful scenery we have now it'll be a winner. :yep:

Theres a ton of screens of the Felixstowe and the Channel Map on the RoF site now.

GSpector 12-25-12 01:01 AM

RoF is still looking great.

It's amazing, just when I think it looks like the best Flight Sim, they make it look even better. :yeah:

Herr-Berbunch 12-27-12 07:04 AM

Has anyone used the Fantasy Island map for ROF yet? It's now officially sanctioned but a manual download, available via 777's ROF site. Just d/l now, <6 MB and I'll try it tonight.

Looks lovely, I think a mate had it a couple of months ago - I remember overspeeding and engine problems, can't remember if I liked it our not but it does look lovely. How much of a hit does it give FPS-wise?

I have frames fixed at 30, and a plane of that type and complexity usually would keep them in midair. But this one not rarely makes them drop to mid-20.

Nothing to worry about, but it makes me wondering what is consuming those frames. While it looks good and is well-simulated, it is no complexity-monster, in my understanding. They wrote in reviews that the frame hit with the earlier piston version was much more severe.

The package has six liveries and three different cockpit colours, beside the bright beige in the pics, there is a black and a grey-blue one.

If there is one issue I have with RealAir planes, than that they just lack fantasy in cockpit lighting. While functionally it is all fine, the ambient light always is of a depressing grey, pale, depression-inducing colour that hinders me to enjoy their planes as much by night as I enjoy them at day. For nightflights, I definitely prefer the Piper Cheyenne. It looks more - gemütlich.

As I have written in the thread on the duke, it overspeeds extremely easily and thus is very easy to burn out the engines. You really have to care for those gauges, you really have to. Oil cooler doors have a vital function in this one.

The overspeeding tendency reminds me of the PMDG JR-4100 - same there. :D

I do not complain, I like it this way.

2. Circling overhead the bridge.
3. Contact.
4. No ammunition, no upper-right wing (again) so I check on the bridge.
5. Bristol F.2b v ship's superstructure.
6. Bristol F.2b v slight mound in a field.

Thanks. Really looking forward to getting the Channel Map, and I'm glad 777 are doing the next IL-2.

Look at my new girl. Brandish. Lean. Elegant. I knew when I first saw her two weeks ago, that I sooner or later would need to make her mine.

Another quality addon by RealAir, a Lancair Legacy. Probbaly the niciest and best addon for suchg a small GA aircraft I ever had, with superb visual quality, a joyful flightmodel, and quite some innovative features that are simulated for the first time ever in FSX.

Flown over Iceland short before noon. At this time of year, it is not really bright up there. I know I know, Iceland in winter - deicing and all that. Let's not spoil the fun!
