  1. OMGEDSON liked a post in a topic by avdheide in Nimbus Release New Previews of Huey   
    Nimbus Simulation Studios have been working on the Huey since early March, however, it has seen little spotlight since the release of Chicago O'Hare (KORD) V3. The project appears to be back on track, however, with new previews posted on the group's Facebook page.
    The military utility helicopter was used by the US Army and Air Force during the war in Vietnam, with over 7,000 iterations of 30 variants deployed there. 

    "Taking the Huey out for a spin at St. Barts (TFFJ)"
    The previews that surfaced today are of the UH-1 Iroquois flying around the Caribbean island of St. Barth's, which Nimbus developed scenery for. They show a relatively complete helicopter, with functions such as the weight & balance menus being previewed for the first time.

  2. OMGEDSON liked a post in a topic by avdheide in Orbx Want To Know – Seasons Or Not To Season (TrueEarth)   
    As of right now, the plan Orbx are considering is to release 2 different versions of the product:
    TrueEarth GB South LOD15 Summer Edition TrueEarth GB South LOD14 Seasons Edition Since it was announced that the planned intention of releasing TrueEarth Great Britain on Prepar3D without seasons, there has been a lot of community feedback regarding that decision. Because of the amount of data that would have to be distributed, it would’ve cost Orbx far more than the cost to the consumer to distribute such a large portion of data amongst the community. Understandably, this wouldn’t have been good business sense from the developer.
    However, John V took to the forums today to give a more detailed explanation into why this was the case and that the team has been discussing various options to both deliver for the community and also the business needs.
    The first thing John did was break down what comparing 5 regions would look like if they had all 5 seasons in the current LOD15 quality.
    TE Region Size in Sq Miles Size on Disk Netherlands 16040 72GB Great Britain 80823 360GB Washington 71362 320GB Oregon 98466 440GB California 163696 730GB TOTAL   2TB John said that by delivering 2TB of data to thousands of customers would “pretty much bankrupt Orbx” – nothing any of us would want to happen. It’s also worth remembering that Orbx allows for free, unlimited downloads for life, which again would add to the data distribution costs.
    As a result of wanting to listen to the community, but also protect the business, John put on the table a couple of options and want the community to comment on them (with constructive thoughts).
    Option 1 – Simply, to release TrueEarth Great Britain as it was intended. So with LOD15 (LOD15 is 1.2m per pixel*) resolution and summer seasons only. Orbx Trees will also work with TrueEarth, so seasonal trees will appear throughout depending on the time of year. Some previews of that are below.
    SPRING SUMMER FALL WINTER SPRING SUMMER Option 2 – Option 2 will compromise on some of the quality, but allow the team to create a seasonal texture package, and still be within reasonable file limits.
    Instead of LOD15 detail, Orbx would reduce to LOD14, but will include 5 seasons into the texture set. This would make it the same size as a LOD15 set overall. This is thanks to how P3D can compress BGL images.
    Below, you can see the difference between LOD15 vs LOD14. John said in his post that the differences are discernible at 500ft, but at a usual VFR altitude of 2,500ft, it’s hard to tell.
    LOD15 LOD14 As of right now, the plan Orbx are considering is to release 2 different versions of the product:
    TrueEarth GB South LOD15 Summer Edition TrueEarth GB South LOD14 Seasons Edition Both will be the same price, but Orbx will offer the 40% cross-grade discount between the two. The plan is people can decide which is more important to them as a simmer, and either choose to install one or both – switching them on/off as required.
    As mentioned at the beginning, Orbx are keen to get your feedback on this, so please head to the forums and give them your constructive thoughts.

  5. ssimmons1958 liked a post in a topic by avdheide in Virtavia B-47E Stratojet for X-Plane 11 !   
    Coming soon - B-47E Stratojet for X-Plane 11 !
     
     

    The ever-popular Virtavia B-47E Stratojet has now been reworked for X-Plane 11 and will be released shortly. A new bump-mapped bare-metal effect has been applied which really brings out the classic lines of the famous Stratojet. The original model's cockpit has also been converted, screenshots will be posted very soon. The RATO function of the FSX version is not included, although it's possible this could be part of a future update. The conversion process is far from simple so we are not able to offer the model package as a free update, although the pricing is favourable at only US$19.95. The new XP11 B-47E is the first in what it is hoped to be a long line of conversions of popular Virtavia titles.
    Looking forward for more and converting of existing virtavia X-plane 10 to X-plane 11

    keynote,
    Smooth in VR
    They confirmed they are launching a very big set of those:
    E and F variants; Short and long cabin Corpo Florestale version, with a radar bulge in the nose Simplex and Erickson water tanks The team also took their time to do a few more liveries and objects to be slung.
    Release date is still not determined but it seems to be very close to be entering your hangar
    Should be fun to fly and work with the slingloads

    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.
