  1. The "dustpan" is definitely a radiator (not very efficient, and duplicated on the other wing in later marks) ... but I've no idea what the sausage on the port wing is ... anyone? Thanks for the nice comments, folks - I'm sure I'll be posting some more soon! Adam.
  2. Almost impossible to resist [yet] another flight sim Spitfire! This is the newly released Aeroplane Heaven MkI ... at Shoreham (EGKA): The "classic" shot": Adam.
  3. I did a bit of exploring around the City and found some weirdness. On the first pass, I'd get areas where no autogen buildings would be drawn at all - just the satellite tile showing. However - after flying on a little and then [physically] turning back, they'd be populated as per usual. No amount of panning/scrolling makes these buildings appear on the first pass. Even pausing/unpausing the sim (to take screenshots) didn't do the trick. This was all with LOD at 2.00 and all object sliders maxed out. Annoying as it is, I suspect this is one of the SU5 "pop-up" bugs mentioned in many posts all over the place - rather than something at fault with the Orbx addon(s). It must be pretty frustrating, being a scenery developer, to have so much hard work spoiled by the core sim after an "update".
  4. Great to see input here from PP Sadly, my LOD 3.0 nirvana was short-lived. Back to plan A (2.0) until advised otherwise!! Adam.
  5. Not sure what all the fuss is about (!!). My Optica starts perfectly well from cold & dark - though I have to say the magnetos switch (keys at the top of the VC) were hard to find! For some reason, I've always liked the Optica (back from P3D days) - and I'm really enjoying this one. My only gripe is that I can't get the GTX330 (Transponder) to power up. Adam.
  6. Oh ... DRAT!!! I can never get my head around this time difference thing. I was [sort of] hoping that, as it hadn't had the official "now closed" announcement, I was still in the clear. That'll teach me to prevaricate!!! Seeing as I can't vote either - best of luck to all!
  7. Hi Pete - long time no hear (sorreee)! I'm having the same problems - and will try your workaround. Do they both have to be 2.000 or is it that they just need to be same same? Mine are currently both 3.000. Looks like I'll have to forego the eye-candy and drop back to 2 ... .. watch this space! UPDATE: Before messing with my LODs, I tried the standard fix (which I'd forgotten to do) - as mentioned by Nick: All working on 3.0 now - and v-e-r-y nice it is too :-)
  8. Some fabulous shots to choose from, but it's Eagleskinner's unusual Optica shot for me!!
  9. A surprisingly misty day (real weather) considering it's the middle of summer! PMDG DC-6 in MSFS. What a majestic aircraft the DC-6 is! Ready for take-off: Approaching EGNM: A fly-over before turning back around for approach: I can't show you the landing - it was *awful*!!! Adam.
  10. Same here ... the UK is superbly done, but it's a shame there's so little Orbx material for Oceania/NZ for XP (I prefer scenery to airports).
  11. Thanks for the comments, folks! I must say that I'm enjoying the DC-6 greatly. It's probably the best aircraft I own in MSFS. A good old fashioned propliner yet still does ILS for when I'm lazy!
