  1. Hi. 1. When flying through Melbourne following river from the marina towards Finders station at 800 feet aircraft crashes into an invisible object about half way between the two. This happens in both directions and with A2A and default aircraft. 2. Is YMML version 2 compatible with AU V2 as although Orbx Central loads it, the aprons , taxiways, runway textures are bad and a lot of markings seem to be missing. Many thanks Clive
  2. First pics after reinstalling P3D v4.5. I just couldn't stay only with v5...
  3. Exploring wonderful Cairns in P3D v5, with very high frame rates
  4. My second flight on P3D v5. I really like the sky depiction (atmosphere/clouds/visibility) when using Enhanced Atmospherics (Beta).
  5. My first flight at Hervey Bay.
  6. My first flight at Tamworth
  7. Tomorrow I will explore Hervey Bay. Three shots here just as an appetizer.
  8. Drobnisd Dec 31, 6:42 AM AEDT I have purchased Australia v2 and updated to Orbx Central. I have deleted my original Australia. When I attempt to download, Orbx Central says I must delete AU Holgermesh. I have done so, and Orbx Central does not show AU Holgermesh as installed. I have deleted AU Holgermesh in FSX Steam and used Orbx Central Help to sync to FSX. Orbx Central still insists I must delete AU Holgermesh and refuses to download Australia v2. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Orbx Central. I have restarted and retried without success. Running Win 7 64b at latest patch. Please congratulate Friend Holger for his tenacity, but help me get v2 downloaded! My transaction ID / receipt number is 5e0a3a0e0e63b. central.log
  9. I purchased this scenery today and I am impressed at how detailed and beautiful it is.
  10. Also bought this scenery today. The level of detail is quite impressive. A true gem.
  11. After leaving Queensland... ... that day also included some more departures for us. At least such a trip is so tiring, you don´t have enough time to become melancholic. And: Duty free provided some Australian memories into our hand luggage: If you have to travel for many hours, do it in style - and with the right plane for @Captain Lars: Unfortunately we did not see much of the scenery, neither in real nor in the sim. Leaving New South Wales... ... for an intermediate stop in the Capital Territory: Restarting after one boring hour in transit... ... to finally leave Australia. Some hours and one continent later we were provided with the best airline breakfast I ever got . Right in time for some shaking on approach to Singers. At least the runway was clear. Now - try to wake up and get ready for the next flight....
  12. Our days in Brisbane had to come to an end... ... but we will be able to remember the correct spelling of the city´s name. Or, most probable, much more. Getting ready at the Virgin Australia terminal for a series of flights... The first takeoff of the day, across Port of Brisbane... ... Mud Island, ... ... and Cleveland. Gold Coast in the distance. Northern NSW looks harmless in the sim, ... ... but in reality there were bushfires already in September. Broken Bay, ... ... and an approach into a city y´all know by name. Unfortunately ATC choose a STAR from the east, I would have loved to have the sun behind. But the clean windows of VA help! The final into YSSY proves that spring textures are green here. Botany Bay. Sydney, here we are! Now grab the luggage and move...
  13. I am happy that I was finally able to reinstall P3D after a failure that required a full Windows reset. Today I reinstalled AU V2, Cairns, and did a little exploration in this amazing area. ]
  14. After our arrival in Brisbane... ... we were lucky: It was the final day of the Brisbane festival https://www.brisbanefestival.com.au/ with some extra shows in the city. On our way to dinner a suspicious plane crossed our way... Big. Noisy. Low. Very low. Unfortunately we can see that the iconic pedestrian bridges over Brisbane River are missing in Orbx Australia, like Kurilpa or Goodwill Bridge. After hiding behind the skyscrapers the pilot probably proved to be a real Jack. Just a little documentation showing that the correct livery was used... And another proof: No bridge was hurt that day.
  15. After some days at Fraser Island´s wilderness ... ... we were to return back to the mainland. In the sim this means I already placed a plane at Hervey Bay. This was the first flight I made after NVIDIA´s driver update mid November - and the significantly increased sharpness was so astonishing, I had to take some more close ups. Off we go, crossing River Heads Road, ... ... followed by some last looks at Hervey Bay, ... ... before we passed Maryborough... ... and Gympie, with its numerous (red) traffic lights. The road winds down southwards, passing Noosa Heads, ... ... Caloundra, ... ... and the Glasshouse Mountains. Caboolture airfield should be just next to the motorway, but I overlooked it! Welcomed by the confusing roads of North Brisbane... ... but we ignored YBBN that day. Instead we spent some funny hours at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. Great fun to my family, I think we made at least 2000 pictures on that day. Archerfield (OZx) with some slight mesh issues was my virtual destination for this flight... ... though in real life we made a detour onto Mt. Coot-Tha ... ... before heading into Brisbane downtown for the evening.
  16. After all that shaking the day before... ... our plans for the next day at Fraser Island were smoother. Leaving Kingfisher Resort... ... with a tour where the name says what´s the intention. Heading north along the island´s beautiful coast and beaches ... ... to Platypus Bay where real life (and the map) indicate a high probability of encounters. Unfortunately in p3d they are placed somewhere else, much closer to Hervey Bay itself. At first we spotted some curious dolphins... ... and shortly after several families of humpbacks. Doing excercises? Or playing with the tourists? Fantastic hours came to an end, and I shortcut with the Cessna... ... right into Hervey Bay. No doubt a tour like this is not the worst activity to invest a day for.
  17. It has been some days since I posted the previous part of our tour: However, it should not be anything but a financial problem to stay at Kingfisher Resort for a longer time. This is how it looks from the sea. On this morning we had booked a 4WD tour across the island. It looks like a road, but in fact it is more a soft beach inside a forest. It was impossible to make a realistic photo while driving. Took us more than 1 hour for the 19 km ride across Fraser Island. The Pacific awaits. 75 mile beach, with slightly high tide in AUv2. And, as foreseen in OZx, ... ... the solid beach can also be used by other mobility toys. A short ride further north the wreck of S.S. Maheno can be seen. And nearby some of the famous Fraser dingoes. They are the genetically most pure dingoes on this planet, as they did never mix with dogs, like they do on the mainland. Returning from the beach via Eurong... ... towards Central Station... ... and Wanggoolba Creek. The water is so clear, you can´t even see it in real life. A few more kilometers back comes Lake McKenzie. A perched freshwater lake. Quite refreshing after the long 4WD ride! And, precisely shown as ever, we follow the bush track "home" to Kingfisher Resort. Thank you for watching!
  18. Following the afternoon trip... ... we did not stay in Hervey Bay. Instead, we took a seamless connection... ... checked the parking lot of Woolworth Uranagan, ... ... and followed River Heads Road southwards for a short while. River Heads is the place where you park your car, ... ... and wait... ... before the shuttle bus takes you to the barge terminal. From there you "just" cross the bay to Fraser Island ... ... until you see Kingfisher Bay Resort https://www.kingfisherbay.com/: Perhaps you stay aware when walking at the beach... But the resort itself is a perfect place to stay some days. I´ll virtually do so, as I go travelling for the next two weeks (in a region without any Orbx ). (Click on the picture to fully enjoy.)
  19. After finally finding the rental car station at the end of the previous post ... ... we went on, using the motorways named in the title. Since I was the driver, there´ll be no real life photos in this post. It was already complicated enough for me to protect the wipers from getting totally worn whenever I had to change lines or directions... Easier was the flight out of blurry Brisbane... ... to the confusing intersections of Moreton Drive into the M1, ... ... along the Boondall Wetlands ... ... and then merging with the M3 into Bruce Highway. Many options for a stop in Orbx/OZx lands: Passing Redcliffe, ... ... Caboolture, ... ... the Glasshouse Mountains ... ... and Caloundra. It is nice to see the roads modeled in 3D, ... ... but not so nice to see Gympies runway also modeled in "3D". The city itself has a remarkable number of traffic lights, all in red of course. Finally we passed them ... ... to the settlements of Hervey Bay. Uranagan below. Can you see the 16 squares of the sunshades left from the middle, just next to the park? That is the supermarket where we grabbed some food for the next leg, wait... With this vehicle we just went downwind... ... into YHBA. The road below us is Booral Road. I was excited to see the airport from the road, but my family did not react quick enough to take a picture! We might have to come back... Touchdown. Stay tuned.
  20. Ok, our time in Cairns had come to an end, ... ... so we needed to get ready for another exciting location. First we took the commuter from Cairns, ... ... and checked the competition. JetStar even parks on the wrong side. The SID leads directly out to the sea... ... making it difficult to catch a good city view. Just after the first hills you see the sugar cane fields of Gordonvale, ... ... while the left side of the plane can enjoy the reef islands. After passing the Hervey Bay area (far in the distance)... ... the STARs SMOK5x lead us along Redcliffe. A beautiful final into the 19 over Brisbane harbour and the mudflats. Not so beautiful the ground textures in YBBN since the AUv2 upgrade. And difficult to land... But at least we found a proper parking lot. Now let´s try to find the rental car station (not easy I can tell you)!
  21. As there was time left after our scenic flight ... ... we went into Cairns to relax, have a swim and a cold drink or two or so. Walking down the Esplanade: It was low tide when we started. Despite the low tide, it is not recommended to swim in the Ocean here due to the big reptiles. That´s why Cairns has a big saltwater pool ("Lagoon"). You can also have nice views of starting planes from there. Moreover, Jarrad has placed some more precision at the southern end of the Lagoon: A heliport... ... and some beautiful signs. Everything totally correct. Unfortunately we can´t see Mr. Marshall on the sign, probably because of the sunshine. A huge number of bars and restaurants around the Lagoon waiting for us. Successful, I can say.
  22. When you go for sightseeing, you expect a higher number of good views. We went for that, and as a result you will have to expect a longer post. So get yourself a drink and some snacks, maybe even some music, and join us for the next tour - after the one we did the day before: The white building on the left is now used by GSL Aviation Cairns https://gslaviation.com.au/cairns/ . Unfortunately I did not find their livery for my Caravan. Taxiing northwards to the 15... ... passing the freighters. Just after takeoff we passed the Hockey Centre (unfortunately no one playing there), ... ... followed by a little city view. Check today´s route. The real Caravan was equipped with a G1000, I try to survive with the older clocks. We were passing the Grey Peaks as we headed out to the Pacific. Jarrad´s replication shows Green Island absolutely magnificent! And the entire reef looks fascinating in AUv2. Vlasoff Cay. OK, if you look in this detail some photoreal would still add a bit. Michaelmas Cay. Do you see the pontons and shuttles next to the sand island? Wait a moment, we´ll get closer... While we turned over Hastings Reef... ... a catamaran came into view. It is the reason why the GPS waypoint is named "SPIRIT": The cat is the Ocean Spirit. Unbelievable how preicse Henrik´s AI ship traffic works! The cat brings snorkelers out to Michaelmas Cay... ... where we shared the island with thousands of seabirds. We returned (too) quickly to the mainland, ... ... and approached over Yorkeys Knob... ... into a sporty final. I did it safely (surely the professional pilot did as well). YBCS domestic terminal. And here we found ourselved parked after shutdown. Both Jarrad´s scenery and the real flight are well worth the money!
  23. Oh no, I do not want to go into music here. I just want to continue our tour through the northern surroundings of Cairns... ... which was paused yesterday just after Mossman. Shortly after we reached Daintree River, ... ... where swimming is not totally recommended. Then we just crossed a little pass towards the Daintree Discovery Center https://www.discoverthedaintree.com/ The views of the rainforest are impressive, unfortunately you cannot hear the birds flying in this picture. NatureFlow at its best! Well, there is also some other NatureFlow here... They say you are lucky if you spot a Cassowary in wildlife https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_cassowary: "At the Daintree Discovery Centre you may be lucky enough to see one of these amazing birds wandering along the creek, foraging for fallen fruit. Truly a once in a lifetime experience!"". We even saw two of them during the day. Now back into the air. Do you see the hairpin corner just under the Bonanza? That is Alexandra Lookout. Worth a little stop, me thinks.... ... before we returned over Daintree River. Unfortunately the ferry is not shown in our AU scenery (yet...). Shortly after we were passing the settlements of Palm Cove... ... and Trinity Beach on the way back to the pubs of Cairns.
  24. After our flight to the northern Queensland coast ... ... we took a rental vehicle and inspected Cairns´ surroundings. We left the airport to the north across Barron River... ... and initially followed M1, Captain Cook Highway. But as we use a plane here, we can do little detour up to Barron Gorge. Just a few seconds away (if you don´t take the famous railway): Leila´s airstrip and Kuranda. A touristic spot we skipped... Merging with the highway again. It winds along the Pacific quite nicely... ... until it turns towards the cane fields. Plan with some delays on the way. Mossman village is the place where one should leave the M1 towards the mountains. Drop your vehicle at the visitor center below... ... and let yourself be guided into Mossman Gorge. No place to land below and no beer either. So we had to continue...
  25. After escaping the sand storm in our last flight... ... it is now time to cross some borders: From AU_Red to AU_Green. From the Northern Territory to Queensland. And which airline would be better suited here than the Queensland And Northern Territory Aerial Services? Lining up in YAYE Ayers Rock airport. Off we go. With a last view to Kata Tjuta and Uluru. Some aerial views of Alice Springs, where our original flight had departed in the morning. You do not need to learn more than Orbx to have full orientation in the real city! The mountains of the northern Queensland coast come into view as it is getting dark. Into Cairns. No way to make real life shots, sorry. Is this really the milky way depicted here? Final. Parked. Parked & blurried. Next time I´ll do this tour with the freeware 717 John @BradB had pointed me yesterday. And now... off into this fantastic city!
