  4. I grew up and still live close to Woodford (EGCD) so the Avro Vulcan is a big part of my life and still remains my favourite all time aircraft, such a special machine. 😊
  5. Last week
  6. Thanks Gibbon. Watching that reminded me of the time when the last operational Vulcans were dispersed around the Uk. Some were sent out by lorry in bits while others were flown in, like the one in the old video below at the old Sunderland Airport, now the site of Nissan UK .The video is low quality, but this footage was taken in 1981/82. Luckily my mother worked at the airport and I was allowed to have the day off school to watch it land, I was so close (way beyond the public viewing area, more near to the taxi way, before the time that health and safety was a thing) I felt the roar of them Olympus engines shake my body to the core.
  7. OMG this is amazing, is there any way you can break this down a little for someone who doesn't know where these file locations are, and could you let me know which line to edit? Does this allow GTN to integrate with the nav or just a side GPS?
  8. Köln/Bonn professional has been updated to version1.0.3. - Adjusted taxiway layout around stands C02 & C03 to prevent incorrect GSX pushback. - Removed border artifacts on tiled normal maps when lower texture resolution settings are selected. - Optional SODE download updated SOURCE
  10. X-Plane 11.30 Beta 4 and Steam X-Plane 11.30 Beta 4 is out, both for Laminar Customers and for Steam! The fix list for beta 4 is pretty short because we intentionally cut back on what we added to it. Beta 4 had one job, and that job was to not be as broken as beta 1, beta 2, or beta 3. X-Plane 11.30 Beta 4 does not have the performance improvements we have been working on for the last week and a half; Sidney and I found a bunch of things that are slowing 11.30 down, but we didn’t want to risk yet another broken beta. This stuff should be ready for beta 5 in a few days. The public beta for 11.30 has been unusual in that it took us quite a few betas to get a stable non-crashing, usable beta, and during the waiting period we heard a lot of complaints from Steam users about being left out, and a lot of questions about when the beta would make it to Steam. Here’s the problem: we don’t know the date when a beta will make it to Steam. Here’s the rough algorithm: 10 BETA = BETA + 1 20 RELEASE BETA 30 WAIT ABOUT 24 HOURS 40 IF BETA CRASHES GOTO 10 50 RELEASE STEAM BETA So in the case of X-Plane 11.30, we had to go back and recut betas due to a crash in the joystick code (beta 1), a crash when the radios were on (beta 2) and airplanes falling through airports into the abyss (beta 3). One thing to note: if there’s a beta and it’s a few days old and it’s not on Steam, it’s because the beta has a known bug that makes it so unusable that you wouldn’t want to set your Steam install to use it. I see no reason to have a beta that crashes when you start it. (Since we collect automatic crash reports from users, we have frequency information about how often crashes are happening, and we can identify crashes that are significantly more frequent than what we’d expect in a stable beta.)

  13. FSElite Exclusive: Tailstrike Designs’ Reggio Calabria (LICR) Previews After their first successful scenery release, Bergamo Professional, Tailstrike Designs are set out to continue developing more scenery. They have exclusively provided us with renders of their work-in-progress upcoming Italian scenery, Reggio di Calabria Airport (LICR). Reggio di Calabria Airport is a regional airport located right at the bottom-end of Italy which caters flights to destinations within the region such as Milan, Rome and Turin. Its prominent carriers are Alitalia, Blue Air and Blue Panorama Airlines. This airport will be compatible with Prepar3D v4 and feature a 3D surrounding cityscape, accurate approach lights and accurate modelling based on real-world photos, plans and video. We will keep you updated as the development of Tailstrike Designs LICR continues.

  14. FSElite Exclusive: Envtex SP2 Previews TOGA Projects have kindly provided us with some exclusive Envtex Service Pack 2 information and eye-catching previews to share. Word of SP2 comes nearly two years after the initial release of Envtex which has come a long way in terms of development. Continuing development and providing support for Envtex is really important to the developers. They would like to thank everyone who has believed in and supported their team in one way or another. TOGA Projects endeavour to deliver a low-cost, user-friendly and high quality but most importantly, a complete utility. They hope they’ve been able to bring such a product to the market with such qualities but with always having room for improvements. The devs took a look back at the first version of Envtex and realised how much the current product has evolved. Almost every file was updated and they could almost say that it’s a completely new product with no upgrade feed ever to be charged to you, the end user. Based on the feedback received, the devs have worked on many aspects of the utility but they’ve especially paid attention to the clouds which was understood to be a weak point. Creating new cloud models was a pointless idea as the majority of the community use HiFi ASCA and REX SkyForce 3D clouds, so they’ve decided to support both, as they do bring along their own cloud textures, TOGA Projects felt that they could bring something different that would fit both products. The challenge here was to make the perfect compromise between realistic-looking soft clouds and photorealistic clouds. Hopefully, they’ve succeeded in doing so but with the end-result to rely on community’s judgement. Although clouds are not the only enhancement. Many textures were reworked from scratch such as the airport textures which will bring life to freeware and default airports. There is a pretty extensive but comprehensive SP2 changelog at the end of this article for you to view. TOGA Projects are in the final stages of completing the new version of Envdir to further move onto the beta testing phase. The previews shown are still work-in-progress as there is still some fine-tuning going on although the final result should be really close if not identical.

  24. FlyTampa Previews Las Vegas McCarran Intl. (KLAS) The last we’ve heard from FlyTampa regarding Las Vegas was back in July, today, over on their Facebook page, they’re back with one landside preview of Las Vegas McCarran Intl. Terminal 3. FlyTampa had announced in their previous post that they are doing the strip and surrounding suburban area around the airport which has taken them a lot longer than expected. We will eagerly be waiting for more previews of the rest of the airport and surrounding area. We don’t have much more information regarding FlyTampa Las Vegas, but we will ensure to keep you updated as more news regarding the airport surfaces. Here’s a photo of the real world Terminal 3 for comparison: SOURCE INFO https://fselite.net/previews/flytampa-previews-las-vegas-mccarran-intl-klas/

    i have no idea what the default splash screen should transport. But for me it was always boring, the happiness was faded away. Everytime i wanted to do a nice flight - the picture killed almost 50% of my happiness. So i tried to fix it by taking alcohol and drugs which caused another effect. I was not able to start a single plane. Even the Aircraft selection became an impossible mission for me. So instead of flying, i started creating stupid things and painting stupid liveries, watching stupid Youtube Videos - everytime i was confused by the simulator. But one day i found a solution that braught back the hyper - feelings, the satisfaction, the glamour. I found out how to create my own "Emotionizer Splashscreen" And since the day i randomly use only these 2 Versions.
  26. Fancy a new plane for P3Dv4? The whisperjet is now available for $20 @ http://www.flight1.com/products.asp?product=qw146p3d4 No new functionality over the FSX version, but the price is fair.
