  1. Thanks everyone for your feedback - some of it rather direct! But... we heard you. So, we have decided (together with Matteo) to make v2 of Burbank Airport available for free to current customers. As Matteo has spent significant time working on this new version, there will be a slight price increase for KBUR v2 for new customers, launching soon.

  2. Welcome to Great Britain North, our second landmark region pack for Microsoft Flight Simulator following on from the successful Great Britain Central. Designed especially for "low-and-slow" pilots who love to explore and discover new regions, and for those who want to enhance their VFR flights, this area stretches from the Isle of Man in the South and up to the Shetland Islands to the North. The pack captures hundreds of unique landmarks and attractions ready to be explored, from the busy cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh, to coastal tourist towns such as Dundee and Aberdeen, all of which have been designed to greatly enhance any flight in the region. As you explore, you can expect to find hundreds of uniquely modelled POIs, including: - Uniquely modelled lighthouses and piers - Stadiums - Famous castles, manor houses and ruins - Bridges - Distilleries (naturally) - Churches and Cathedrals - Masts, Radomes and military base installations - VFR reference points Almost 600 POIs await to be discovered across this vast area that covers the Scottish Highlands, the beautiful Lochs (if you look carefully enough, maybe Nessie will make an appearance), the Outer Hebrides and Shetland Islands as well as parts of Northern Ireland and Belfast. Castles such as the Dunrobin Castle, the most northerly of Scotland's great houses and the largest in the Northern Highlands, has received extra special attention along with 31 other hero POIs. Enjoy these first previews! Below is a quick snapshot of the almost 600 POIs are that are included in Great Britain North for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

  3. Hi all, The World Update VII compatibility fixes for Cityscape Sydney is now available on Orbx Central. The update is being submitted to Microsoft as well as an XBox version for testing and acceptance. This update works best with the photogrammetry data as being enabled. If the PG is disabled you will see issues with the Sydney Harbour Bridge off-ramps. Note that with photogrammetry enabled, we have used best efforts in ensuring POIs work well within the photogrammetry area in the CBD. We have elected to retain the original Cityscape Sydney Harbour Bridge and One Barangaroo POIs in lieu of those shipped with WU:VII in update as well.

  8. Marina di Campo airport is the airport for the Italian island of Elba. It is located in the village of La Pila. Perhaps it's most famous resident in its long history was Napoleon Bonaparte, who was exiled here in early 1814 after he was dethroned. I've always wanted to visit Elba as I thought after reading a book about Napoleon , that he was on to a good thing. Cheers Kodiak 100, RexWeatherForce Live Weather, RexAccuseasons - "Summer - Peaceful Meadow setting" Now this is where I really want to be ..... Poolside! In fact that little table has my name all over it The got me loaded and I thought that all I need are passengers and I can be off. But then they all disappeared - lunch ! So instead, here I stay , out on the tarmac, in the heat , dreaming of better times

  10. We are pleased to welcome the Hungary VFR team to OrbxDirect! From one of the developers of the team, Gergely Debreceni: "It's been many years since the development started, two of us started it as a hobby for our own, with the aim of putting some of the country's many sights and attractions into the simulator. As the project grew, we shared it with the public. Since then, we have added thousands of custom models, not only landmarks, but also many other objects specific to the country, the scenery also has some unique features, like dynamic scenery elements. Blue skies!" Available now is their wonderful Hungary VFR Freeware pack which we have separated into two packs - Airports and Landmarks. Airports Landmarks Please note that if you have already installed this pack from flightsim.to, please remove it first. The required libraries for these two packs are installed by Orbx Central for you.

  13. Burbank Airport, developed by Matteo Veneziani, is one of the primary airports of the Los Angeles area, with mainline carriers flying to destinations across the US. As the closest airport to downtown LA and the major film studios, it is also highly popular with corporate traffic, as well as being a major cargo hub for FedEx and UPS. Aside from trans-continental flights to locations such as Atlanta and Chicago, Burbank will be perfect for your FBW A320 and PMDG 737 ops. Matteo has completely reworked the original MSFS release with this new version, building on techniques learnt and perfected over the last 18 months. No longer relying on the default textures for the the groundpoly, a new one has been created using custom high-quality textures along with realistic elevation profiles. Also new are library objects such as the static aircraft, complete with a Control Panel option to remove. This comprehensive package has been recreated with great care and incredible attention to detail for all simmers to enjoy. Take flight with Orbx and explore the skies of Tinseltown today. Features: Complete ultra-HD rendition of Hollywood Burbank Airport Reworked groundpoly using custom textures Sloped runways with realistic elevation New apron expansion Custom modelling throughout, with complete PBR textures Unique GSE and static aircraft fleet unique to Burbank Custom vegetation, grass and non-airside detailing New static aircraft with Control Panel option to remove For existing KBUR customers: KBUR Hollywood Burbank Airport v2 will replace the original release and customers with v1 in their OrbxDirect accounts will be eligible for a free upgrade.

  16. Queen Mary II is moored at Circular Quay in the Orbx Sydney city scenery. So I thought, why not let the original Queen Mary visit her. She must be terribly bored at her resting place in Long Beach, so let’s take her out to visit Australia. The Queen Mary is a freeware FSX model, which I ported over to MSFS. After a long, but very enjoyable journey, she is seen here approaching Watsons Bay She is about to round South Head, which allows her to enter Sydney Harbour On our starboard side we pass Mosman Bay. Hmmh…wasn’t there something with a rowing club The virtual bridge deck clearly shows that this ship is not an MSFS model, but it still looks nice and is pretty close to the original For a ship of this size, Sydney Harbour can be quite tight. It must be much worse with the present mega cruise ships Two beauties

  17. Easy for me. Tom, Gerry, and The Monarchs. That's the rock band I played with back in the late '50's. Mostly original stuff. We even managed to cut a couple of 45's. What a hoot. There is currently a group call The Monarchs. They've been around since 1962. We broke up in 1959. How come they are still around and we aren't? That's easy to answer...they're MUCH better than we ever were .

  20. Teti’aroa is an atoll that was once a vacation spot for Tahitian royalty. Located just 53 km (33 mi) north of Tahiti, hardly anyone knew of its existence. That changed, when Marlon Brando discovered it, after shooting “The Mutiny on the Bounty”. He bought it in 1966 and built a small village on one of the motus, so he could stay there with his family. Today the island is home to a gorgeous luxury eco-hotel (The Brando Resort). Eight of Brando’s eleven children are involved in the resort project. A local has offered us some fish for our upcoming trip Tahiti can be seen on the left, Moorea on the right side We pass over Taha’a. Bora Bora can be seen in the distance What a beautiful region this is in MSFS!

  24. From indie developer Rasha Tucakov comes LYPG Podgorica Airport located in the Balkan country of Montenegro, following his previous releases of LYNI and LDZD. LYPG is located in of the few flat areas of the country that is more known for its rugged mountainous terrain and is one of the two international airports for Montenegro, serving the capital city of Podgorica. Referred to Golubovci Airport by locals, LYPG sees regular services by European airlines like Ryanair, Wizz Air, Austrian Airlines and Transavia as well as the national carrier, Air Montenegro. The airport offers a challenging circle-to-land visual approach to RWY18 as well as a stunning VOR/NDB approach to RWY36 that takes you over Lake Skadar at low-level. Rasha delivers a highly detailed, up to date and optimised airport add-on with plenty of features airside and landside. The recently built terminal is an all-glass and aluminium structure that has been beautifully modelled inside and out. PBR materials, LOD optimisation, sloped runway, dynamic lighting, complete AI integration and custom terrain edits round out this superb effort by Rasha. At a glance PBR as standard Detailed interior terminal Unique static aircraft Custom weather-influenced ground polygon with unique textures and markings Please note that the screenshots feature AI aircraft from the excellent AIG addon.

  25. Thanks for the advice fellas, but I just put some plastic wrap over the opening, filed off the burrs where the hinges were, picked up the door which already had beer and a pound of ham salad in it and sat it beside my desk. Got so frustrated I ate the whole pound of lunch meat and drank all the beer.

  32. For me its got to be 'The Seekers'. I can, and do, listen to their music for an hour or two every day. And its not only the music, the words resonate strongly with me too. Their song; 'I am Australian' could well be the National Anthem of that magnificent Country and it's people.

  34. Let’s visit first Panama City Above the canal’s entrance I realize that crossing it would be much more interesting in a ship The last time I have used a ship was the Queen Mary in Sydney. She has crossed the canal multiple times, so I won’t use her now for this crossing. I know of a ship, which has used this canal only once, in 1946. It’s the German battle cruiser Prinz Eugen, now under her new name USS Prinz Eugen The first locks near Panama city are the Cocoli locks Having left the Miraflores Lake, we approach the Via Centenario Bridge With a speed of 35 knots, it is easy to overtake other ships Suddenly I feel so tiny The final locks before we arrive in Colon on the Pacific side are the Gatun locks Colon is in the background On our way to the US Naval Base in San Diego

  38. This is going to be just a short flight, I had to use the occasion that I could spend some virtual days at these remote islands. And some more exceptions to my usual posts: We´ll see some photos from a picture book of my library. And I get you the orientation right at the beginning of this post: We take off from NTAA Tahiti, ... ... make a short hop over the sea to Moorea, ... ... and have to climb quite a lot to cross Mt. Tohiva. Directly after we can descend to the north coast of Moorea. For comparison the same descend taken from Matevz Lenarcic in his book "Wasserwelten" (don´t know how the title is in Slovenik or English). A fantastic inspiration for us pilots, and a great book to read, btw. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matevž_Lenarčič Heading back to Tahiti with Temae airport behind. An approach over the north coast of Tahiti already gives a hint of the sharp mountains, ... ... which look even sharper when you cross the island. On final back into NTAA we cross some bigger settlements, namely Mahina and Papeete. And here we are back again on the international airport of Faa.

  39. The flashing green and white light is an airport beacon. EICK BCN.mp4 Looking at the airfield diagram for EICK, it looks like the actual position of the beacon should be on top the control tower, not on the terminal. The star indicates the location and "ABN FL W/G" means Airport Beacon, Flashing, White/Green. FYI, military airfields have a green / double white beacon. (This is MSFS default RAF Lakenheath.)
