  1. Some fabulous shots to choose from, but it's Eagleskinner's unusual Optica shot for me!!
  2. 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.
  3. 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).
  4. 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!
  5. Thanks, chaps!! It was fun getting back into XP11 after all those weeks of taming "the beast" that is MSFS. Maybe XP11 is losing out a little, but it's still an amazing sim. I love those Goose shots as well ... and entered #4 in the screencomp. When you see them all together, though, I'm wondering whether #2 would be a better choice <??>. I was also severely tempted to use that Tornado shot ... Adam.
  6. MSFS PMDG DC-6B with Jankees Blom's excellent TEAL livery near Queenstown, Orbx NZ Mesh ... Adam.
  7. MSFS vs XP11 ... MSFS first (NZ Mesh): ... and now six from XP11 (TEGB): Adam.
  8. Here's mine!!! Freeware Goose with Jankees Blom's livery near Queenstown - MSFS + Orbx NZ Mesh.
  9. There's nothing wrong with XP11!!! Here's a visitor to the Welsh hills (TEGB): ... and here comes the welcome commitee! Amazing detail ... look at that vapour coming down! Adam.
  10. Bob - you *know* my "secret" ... it's quite simple, really ... just mash all the sliders fully right and watch the slide show!!! Setting up your external camera views/controls helps a lot too. I generally fly/scroll around in HUD view (as it's fast) then hit pause and jump into "Drone" view to compose the shot ... maybe changing the time or weather theme when paused to see if anything nice happens. After that, very little editing (if any) in Photoshop ... and that's that! I was tempted by the Islander (would love your thoughts on that!) ... but the Trislander would be awesome. It takes ugly to the highest level! Adam.
  11. Not sure whether I can manage the "before and after" as MSFS doesn't make mid-air position saving that easy - but I'll have a go! I'll also take a look at Central Otago for you!
