  1. | GEOPACK SCENERY SERIES 15m (IFR) Photographic Scenery Series for FSX/P3D VRS GeoPack is a new series of 15 meter IFR resolution (mid to high altitude) pan-sharpened, color balanced satellite imagery designed to cover prolific military theaters of conflict throughout the world. GeoPack is the only scenery currently available for FSX/P3D that covers vast areas of the Middle-East (followed by other areas, including the Korean Peninsula) at this resolution and imaging consistency. Each package also features custom night lighting meticulously crafted by VRS scenery specialist Norman Gibson. Ideal for Military Ops: GeoPack is perfectly suited to provide maximum performance and visual quality at medium (10K) to high (30K+) altitude over the widest possible range for fast-movers. This scenery is not designed to provide low altitude local (VFR) coverage. VFR scenery can provide higher quality visuals at low altitude, but these are ill-suited to military aircraft which typically travel at faster speeds and higher altitudes than General aviation (GA) or rotorcraft. GeoPack provides "real as it gets" visuals for both solo and multiplayer flight exercises over some of the most historical and currently active military combat zones in the world. New! Volume III: North (DPRK) & South Korea Total Coverage: 220,750 km2 Volume III: Our third GeoPack release covers the countries of North (DPRK) and South Korea, with partial (border region) coverage of China, Sea of Japan, and Yellow Sea. Total coverage for Vol III is 220,750km2. Korea is in the news almost daily, with provocative actions occurring regularly from the North. Will the rhetoric turn to action with the region exploding into all-out war? See the starkly contrasting topographies like never before, and experience what it's like to fly over some of the most intensely charged airspace on Earth! New! Volume II: Syria/Jordan/Lebanon/Palestine/Israel Total Coverage: 311,964 km2 Volume II: Our second GeoPack release covers the countries of Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Israel/Palestine with partial (border region) coverage extending into Turkey and Iraq. Total coverage for Vol II is 311,964 km2. Simulate battles over some of the most militarily active airspace on Earth in this extensive Middle-Eastern package. Designed by Norman Gibson, and including gigabytes of never-before released areas in FSX/P3D, this package will transform your mundane stock scenery into beautiful high-altitude photo-realistic landscapes. Volume I: Iraq/Kuwait Total Coverage: 862,725 km2 Volume I: Iraq/Kuwait is the first package available, and covers the countries of Iraq and Kuwait with partial (border region) coverage of Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Turkey (see coverage map). Total coverage for Vol I is 862,725 km2. From Operation Desert Storm, to Iraqi Freedom (OIF) and Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR), Iraq has been bore the brunt of almost three decades of war. GeoPack Volume I provides an accurate visual foundation upon which historical or reimagined air operations may be flown. | GeoPack General Features The following features are generic to all volumes of GeoPack. Please see individual packages for specific coverage details and media.

  2. That's why I posted "Can't wait to see it in Edson's streams." If it looks good and the price is reasonable, I would have no problem improving my sim. That's why we follow certain streamers, to see the new or updated products to help in our decision to purchase. Those that I feel give me the best value, I buy.
  3. I love the representation of "Canada" as being covered in pine trees. Though I can see hundreds of trees from my office window, there are also buildings and other shit too! I'm happy they didn't show trees surrounding an igloo! Awesome looking product! Can't wait to see it in Edson's streams.
  4. The question remains, to my understanding, whether this will be updated to v4 compatibility as a no charge update, or will be sold separately for v4. I will wait to purchase as I have been burned before (not by Just Flight) on a purchase I assumed was to be updated to v4. Poor assumption on my part lead me to make sure I am buying what I expect I am buying. If it is an upgrade at no extra cost, I am very happy for all of you who bought at 50% off!

  12. It was a promotional stunt that in today’s dollars used a $144 million investment by Boeing. And it was done without the knowledge of Bill Allen, then president of the company, who was watching. And fuming. He was not a happy man. The firm’s future was on the line. No time for tricks. But 62 years ago, on Aug. 7, 1955, Boeing’s chief of flight testing, the legendary Alvin “Tex” Johnston, pulled an impressive stunt in the prototype of the Boeing 707. Hmmm . . . This guy looks a lot like Edson . . . Is that the Sky Lounge wings on his lapel? Naw. It's actually Tex Johnston, famed test pilot. Wearing the Stetson he borrowed from Brandingiron.

  13. That's a pretty sweet logo! I'm gonna need the art files so I can add it to our liveries.
  14. I would agree, shallow water would have been a better choice, IMHO, but then there still could have been casualties. Just not some poor dude asleep sunbathing. Though, if I had my choice of dying in a fiery crash or being killed by a plane while sleeping on the beach dreaming of bikini clad women . . . . . . who am I kidding, I refuse to go!
  15. LISBON, Portugal - A light plane made an emergency landing on a packed beach near Lisbon on Wednesday afternoon, killing a 56-year-old man and an 8-year-old girl who were sunbathing, authorities said. Hundreds of sunbathers were on the popular beach at Caparica, 30 kilometres (20 miles) south of Lisbon, and witnesses said some sunbathers ran into the sea to avoid the plane. The National Maritime Authority said the man and girl died on the beach. Officials said they were not aware of any injured. The small aircraft, reportedly a Cessna, carrying two people appeared to be in difficulty and wobbled as it skimmed low over the sunbathers, scattering them and spreading panic on the beach, witnesses said. The plane appeared to have a partly broken left wing, which hung lower than the right wing, Portuguese television pictures showed. Officials said the accident occurred at 4:50 p.m. (1550 GMT). The dead girl was with her parents, who were unhurt, witnesses told local television channels. The plane passed over the dead man's legs as he sunbathed on a towel, they said. No others were reportedly hurt. The bodies lay covered on the sand as police cordoned off the area. The two occupants of the plane were unhurt and were being questioned by police. LINK TO SOURCE:
