  1. Good day everyone, Just wanted to share a brief update on my Swedish airports series and what I've been up to lately. Worth mentioning these are MSFS2020 updates & things might change. First of there is a patch coming for ESMS Malmö Airport (or Sturup as most of us still refers to) which will contain: - Functional moving jetways - Functional & correct VDGS units (not in the current screenshots) - Some visual updates on the terminal - Removed statics at terminal & cargo area - Animated airside traffic - Some minor bug fixes Then we got a patch for ESSB Stockholm-Bromma airport which contains: - Interiors for departure & arrival halls - Interiors added for the old tower, which is still functional in real life as back-up if the new tower would go offline for whatever reason. - Animated airside traffic - Included Frölunda airfield so you got somewhere to fly close enough when you've haven't got too much time And some of Frölunda airfield: Also wanted to share some first previous from ESSA Stockholm-Arlanda, still just renders but we are slowly getting there. No ETA on this yet, but this year at least is the plan. If you are interested in keeping an eye on this project you are welcome to follow the progress on my Facebook page "The Arlanda Journal" where I try to post updates every now and then and is also a great place if you want to help out in any way with information, photos etc to support the project. You find it here: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100077462715941 Thanks to new references I will also soon start on a patch for ESGG Gothenburg-Landvetter which will include: - The new terminal pier open up, - New high-res terrain data added for the airport - Interiors for the new terminal pier - The hotel (being constructed in current release) will be included as it has finished now - Animated airside traffic - Semi-functional moving jetways (all depends on what we can do about the N-jetways, the T-jetways are working ok now) - Functional & correct VDGS units. - Removed statics in terminal & cargo area A final teaser is that I'm also porting over ESKS Scandinavian Mountains Airport and ESNQ Kiruna Airport, which will be pretty much straight ports from our P3D scenery with just some additional PBR where needed. These will be included for free in one of the patches for either ESMS or ESGG.

  2. Hey there to everyone once again, I'm here with a quick update on Belfast progress. Thought it'd be a great idea to have a separate topic for it so that it doesn't get lost in the previous one. What you're seeing on these videos is just the tip of the iceberg. This project will feature a lot of new crazy things that I've never done before. It's still a WIP, so as always don't freak out if something is missing/looks odd, we'll get there, soon-ish. The most important part of every airport, and also the most time consuming one - the passenger terminal, is complete, which means we are not far from release. Also, all of this great stuff will be brought to EGPH (There'll be a huge update for it) and EGPF in an update as well, EGNX and EGPD will come with it on release, obviously. UKLL will come at a later stage. See you in a bit!

  3. Welcome to the cultural and sports capital of Australia and the hometown of Orbx! With about a third of its current five million residents born outside of Australia, Melbourne’s skyline mirrors its inhabitants’ diversity, from Gold Rush and Victorian architecture to ultra-modern skyscrapers. Moreover, the city is home to Australia’s second busiest airport, Tullamarine (YMML) and its busiest seaport – and, relevant to pilots, it’s also where the “black box” flight recorder was invented in 1958. While World Update 7 Australia added photogrammetry to Melbourne and about a dozen Orbx-made POIs, this new Melbourne pack has another 200 custom-made buildings and structures, along with the many other enhancements and features our Landmarks series is known for. Older architectural highlights are the Royal Exhibition Center, St Patrick's Cathedral, Parliament of Victoria, and Shrine of Remembrance, while modern highlights include the Melbourne Museum, Collins Arch, Dockland towers, and the soon to be completed Shangri-La and Sapphire by the Gardens twin towers. With Melbourne being such a bustling place, we’ve added animated features easily seen from the air, such as Metro trains on the viaduct between Flinders and Southern Cross stations, hot air balloons, and racehorses on Moonee Valley and Flemington Racecourse. For helicopter pilots, the Children's Hospital, Royal Hospital, and Victoria Police Center Tower have landable helipads. In addition, there are several floating helipads along the downtown and port sections of the Yarra River. The port areas west of downtown have received careful attention, with custom models for industrial buildings and container cranes, high-beam night lighting, and a diverse collection of ships and boats. Outside of the city center, we’ve added custom models of the key VFR reporting points of the Melbourne Basin Visual Pilot Guide, such as Doncaster and Parkmore shopping centers, Laverton BoM tower, and Victoria Police Training Academy. We’ve added animated features on land and in the air so keep your eyes peeled while exploring the city and its surroundings. As with all our Landmarks titles, we've made extensive enhancements to the entire area, terraforming, and improving the placement of vegetation and generic buildings. At a glance: More than 200 custom buildings and structures. Detailed representation of the Port of Melbourne and adjacent industrial areas. Helipads on several rooftops, as well as on floating platforms along the Yarra River. Animated Hot Air Balloons north of the CBD, visible on mornings with clear weather. Animated CBD Metro trains on the viaduct between Flinders and Southern Cross stations. Animated racehorses on Moonee Valley and Flemington racecourse. Many enhancements to the city and surrounding areas: improved vegetation and building placements, marinas, tall powerline towers, etc. Precise placement of our custom landmarks within the simulator’s terrain and the city’s photogrammetry coverage. Custom night lighting based on real-world photography Fully compatible with World Update 7 Australia and meant to be used with it. Keep an eye out for more exciting previews as we get ready for release!

  4. Welcome to Phuket International Airport (VTSP), the gateway to Phuket Island! Thailand's second busiest airport draws a large number of tourists from all over the world, with over 16 million passengers passing through each year. With the ease of access to the airport’s runway, Mai Khao Beach is a popular spot for plane-lovers to capture photos of arriving and departing aircraft. There are three terminals at Phuket Airport: international, domestic, and the recently completed Siam Land Private Jet Terminal. Thai Airlines and nearly 50 other airlines, including Etihad Airways and Air China, use the airport as a hub. All these have been expertly modelled with PBR.

  6. Good weather, some work and private life have kept me away from the sim for some weeks. Well, being stuck in Heraklion / Crete is not that bad - even if only in my virtual travels. Today we get on, with just a short hop from the Cretan capital... ... northbound over the Aegean Sea. Santorini to our right... ... and very soon the Greek mainland ahead. A view to Athens in the morning sun... ... not so sunny on this early May morning. But successfully landing in LGAV, ready to change planes.

  10. ........plus 1 day! I can clearly remember events on the 29th of June 1962, 60 years ago. The time would have been around 17:00 and we were sat having dinner around our large square table. We lived in a big house in the Surrey countryside about 8 miles from Guildford. We had a very strict upbringing and meal times were no exception. We were used to glares of disgust from our parents when we held our cutlery the wrong way or other heinous mealtime crimes! Then we heard a different sound and as one, without any word of permission, we jumped up and ran out to the back step and looked up. There was the Vickers VC-10 on it's maiden flight from Brooklands to Wisley. We had seen the prototype,G-ARTA, a few weeks before when a friend of the family took us to the Vickers factory. It was to be a familiar sight over the next few years, along with the Super VC-10 and a Ghana Airways plane which were also tested at Wisley. This is how I remember my first view of the VC-10 flying. 1. As there is no Brooklands airport in P3D, the JF VC-10 is taking off from nearby Dunsfold and as probably in the real flight, no payload and little fuel. 2. Now to some XP views and as XP doesn't have a VC-10 I am flying the JF PA-28 in BOAC colours. Brooklands is where the VC-10 made it's maiden flight from. You can make out the old runway going roughly in the direction the top left corner. The short runway meant that only a take off was possible. The prewar motor racing circuit can be made out too, roughly a tear drop shape. 3. This is what is left of the Vickers test facility at Wisley. I lived only 5km from here to the left of screen and Brooklands, which is the light patch top right, was another 5km in the opposite direction. 4. As you can see, I have to make a lot of adjustments to XP. I made the mistake of doing an update and lost all my settings. I am a day late with this post as I had to rush the missus to ER last night after she had a very bad allergic reaction to some shellfish she had for tea. She is on the mend now but the doctor told me it was a very serious attack. A big thanks to the staff at GV Health, who as usual provided first class care.

  12. Hi all, did not do any flight simulation for more than half a year. My best wishes to all of you in the forums! My sims seem to work and I did some flights in the old sims as well. It's beautiful. Have installed some more TrueEarth from the midsummer sale for P3d and Xplane, I'll do some shots and videos next weeks. This is from the old sims: NZWR in P3dv3.4, it's the old FSX Skyhawk and a nice paint by John Murchison if I am right. FSX SE and the scenery at Westhaven in PNW, must be 13 or 14 years old. Big bird at Bowerman Thank you very much for viewing! Cheers Andreas

  13. Continuing travels we were pushed back at Athens LGAV... ... to capture a view of the city shortly after. Levelled off over the Albanian coast... ... it was time to get my caffeine level also adjusted. That´s what I really, really like on a plane. The alps in the distance... ... or a bit closer. And here we begin the descend around Fulda... ... into Hanover, ... ... perfectly aligned. No troubles. And here is the obligatory service.

  15. Hi all, an update for NZ Mesh is now available on Orbx Central. Changelog LiDAR sources used for Marlborough North, Canterbury Banks peninsula, Auckland, Westport, Wellington and Queenstown areas Compatibility for Sim Update 9 changes D'Urville Island now included At the time of this release, our Landmarks Auckland City product still requires some additional minor tweaks to cater for the new LiDAR sources and we will advice when that has been updated.

  16. My mind thinks that that this is the right place to place an old codgers memory of 70 years ago because someone else might remember it as well - and what they did on the day. In my case - I took this photo on my Kodak 120 Brownie - in the pouring rain - sitting in East Carriage Drive - London - in a Stand - outside the Grosvenor Hotel. I was one of a group of 6 engineering apprentices - out of 45 - that won a trip all the way down to London to "See The Queen" and her coronation. Went to the Tower of London for the first time -------- to see if I could Qualify for the Guards The other memory of that day - was the news that came out that morning on our way to the stand at 6am - that Edmund Hilary - a Kiwi from NZ - and his Sherpa guide - Tensing - had climbed Everest - the first to do so - a few days earlier.

  18. Cities are what I like the most in this sim, along with sunsets and the 747 (though not in these series) I initially picked up 37 but then thought that it could be too many so I reduced them a bit. I really enjoy changing the weather though the more you have the more difficult it is to choose Cheers Carlos

  26. Thankyou so much for the updated NZ mesh. I know that this would have been a real pain in the how's ya father after all the work to the original product. I have checked out Queenstown, Milford and Mount Cook. I can't get the grin off my face. I know that you will sort out any remaining hicups that may be present elsewhere. Thanks again for the great work. Kevin

The outside view shows Lake Zurich better. As this one shows Zurich airport, with its terminals B, A and E (from right to left). And here, the expected service:

  33. It's E. It's always E. THEY are watching, waiting, planning, plotting. THEY have been here a long time. In fact, I highly suspect we are all just minds in a Matrix type of simulated world and THEY put us here to watch how we operate. Kind of like an ant farm. THEY cannot be trusted. Trust no one. Don't look at me. Go away....I can't see you, you're not real! Ahhhh! I need more coffee

  37. Thank you for your comment, I'm always happy when the airport feels so alive that it can bring back memories! Thank you, Andy! Can't wait to pump Edinburgh with all this stuff as well. To my surprise, such an interesting location was left in the dark. Not anymore! Thank you for your comment Appreciate your interest! I'm telling myself everyday that I need to update UKBB with custom jetways, it's not forgotten! Oh the tiny details, take so much time but give so much more immersion. Appreciate your feedback! Oh stop it, you Appreciate your care, me and my family are in safety, that is why I can continue development! Thank you for your kind words. This rig is equipped with an RTX3080 paired with an i7 12700K. The Fenix gives stable 60 FPS when not "zoomed in" to see what the VGDS screen is showing. I'm doing 150% of what's possible to make sure it's silky smooth. You're totally right, it's ultra-ish with the exception of Object Detail that is set to 150 and Terrain Detail at 125. Thank you very much for your support, I am safe together with my family and can finally resume development properly. It wouldn't have been possible without your incredible support!
