  1. A 'nose' shot of the mighty Spitfire, parked in front of main airport building of Shoreham. The model is the Mk1a version from Aeroplane Heaven.
  2. It has been a somewhat expensive long weekend & I am grateful for Orbx's discounts & sales. I started with Catalina Airport, then I had another look at EGKA, (Shoreham), as I liked the look of it & the 3 runway set up, which, I understand, goes back to WWII to allow landings regardless of wind direction. Then there is it's Art Deco heritage & it's location by the sea with a river flowing past. So it is an interesting airport to operate from & handy for jaunts to France. I also added LPVL, (Maia-Vilar de Luz airport), near Porto, as I discovered it has a 7,500' runway & when I looked at the map of my current holdings I realized it is nicely placed for long hauls into different parts of Europe, & Scandinavia. Thirdly I also took up CYBD, (Bella Coola), as it was one I enjoyed in P3D, plus a tweaked Stewart was thrown in. Finally I added an aircraft, a Caudron-Rafale 430 by Bluemesh, who I have never heard of, but in MSFS these days that is not unusual. From the marketing information: "The Caudron C.430 "Rafale" is a two-seater monoplane (or single-seater by closing the front seat), built by the company Caudron-Renault. It was designed by Marcel Riffard for the training of pilots who had to use racing machines like the Caudron C.362 or C450/460". Being a bit of a sucker for vintage and/or unusual aircraft, it caught my eye. The visual quality & sounds are very good. I have a few shots from Shoreham, where I endeavored to take flight. I admit that I haven't quite got it sorted yet & need a longer runway than the one I initially chose. I hope Estuary water in which it got a dunking won't dissolve it overnight! Shoreham reeks of a bygone age, as does the Caudron, & I trust I can put together a successful mating of the too, in the sense that I can take it off & land it there! TTM (MSFS) Instruments helpfully labelled in French. I just read the numbers. Side on, very sleek. Note the tail skid. I need to keep off tarmac. The throaty exhaust sound exits via the pipes, LHS of the engine bay. Prop position suggests the engine is inverted? Taxiing out, grinding the tail skid down. Flaps are fairly massive & it can 'duck' wobble as you get up to speed prior to take off.
  3. Greetings! I purchased the GB South scenery (Transaction ID: 5ff0d1726b2e0) a few weeks ago. Shoreham airport (EGKA) is almost impossible to use as the undulations are exaggerated. There are no other EGKA airports in the sim. Attached please find my scenery_packs.ini for your perusal. Cheers Richard scenery_packs .ini
  4. Hi, First, I'd like to say that TE GBS v2 has delivered a staggering improvement in frame rates and overall smoothness, so big thanks for that. One thing I've noticed, though, is that there's still an issue with autogen suppression in Brighton with the payware EGKA installed. It does not occur with just TE GBS (no EGKA) or with the landclass FTX England region and EGKA. See the screenshot for reference: Thanks in advance for looking into this Tym
  5. Better when enlarged... BugDani.
  6. On the 8th of April 1967, 50 years ago today, the Beagle Pup made it's first flight from Shoreham Airport. Just over 2 1/2 years later the Government withdrew it's financial backing and Beagle Aircraft went under despite having over 200 on order.. Here is Henry Ford's nightmare, an array of Pups in various colours except black. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12.
  7. Hello Orbx team, After the installation of EGKA in Prepar3D v3 I found out that all the static aircraft are floating above the ground as you can see in the screenshot. After the installation I ran the Vector Configuration Tool, as I do after every new installation of an airport. My mesh settings are at 5m as is pointed out in the manual. Any other suggestions how I can fix this? Thanks!
  8. From the sale. Have avoided Ireland all this while, but in a sale - I'll take it. Started in Cork, and the weather is just what I'd expect Getting too mizzy, so headed for Norway instead - ENNO looks like another wet one, but let's give it a go Damn! Still mizzy. I'll try one more place with real weather then maybe I'll have to fake it. Let's try Shoreham - Ah, sunshine at last! That's more like it! And my thanks to Ron Attwood for the repaint.
  9. Some flights on a great ORBX scenery with the superb A2A T-6 texan. Some aerobatics at EGKA Smoking from EGKA to EGHI Autopilot flight from EGHI to EGBB Kind regards, Jorge.
  10. surveying the airport area of Shoreham(EGKA) near Brighton at UK-southcoast via a police-heli. Again here is the grass as 'british-green' as possible.
  11. Hey guys, I just picked up WLS, ENG (already had SCO). I am thinking about getting NIR and IRL while the sale special is happening. I did read while back that Orbx wasn't contemplating making airports for those region that time. Will there potential for some nice Orbx airports (especially catered to big and small planes) in 2016 for these 2 regions? Also - I know you guys do not give updates on time frame; but can you throw me a bone about EGHI, EGPB, EGKA update queue for P3Dv3. I bought the regions especially to have those airports. I actually do like all of your England airports. I just want to know are they up in queue for release soon or will it take like 6 months+. You guys do have lot of stuff on your P3Dv3 conversion queue. This way I can plan on when to buy those specific airports. Thank You.
  12. From Shoreham around the Isle of Wight to Goodwood Enjoy and thanks for looking! FSX - DX10 - Shade
  13. Another flight I did a while ago was the short one from Goodwood to Shoreham. Started off in fine weather but by the time I arrived in Shoreham it is raining. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Just trying out the new OZxpix upload page. Almost got it but will have to look closer as to see what I am doing wrong to make the pics upload out of order.
  14. Two more airports I have not visited for a while are Goodwood and Shoreham. A short flight as it is only 20 miles between the two. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
  15. Thought I'd dust off my Fairchild - on a flight from the Channel Islands to Fairoaks via Shoreham Taxi and take-off from (ES's) Guernsey Passing over Alderney Isle of Wight Shoreham approach The luggage does not quite look suitable for a military airplane, does it? Setting out for the next leg of the journey Over the English countryside The McLaren Technology centre on the left Thought I had left these bags in Shoreham? Cropped straight DX10s Cheers Mallard
  16. Enjoy and thanks for looking!
  17. ...with a flight from Shoreham to Elstree Cheers Mallard
  18. Vintage(ish) flight from Shoreham to Southampton Fly-by past the memorial at the entrance (which you might just about be able to make out right at the bottom of the pic) The paint on this recon Spit really blends in nicely with the landscape Flying past the landside of Southampton... ...and over the Spit memorial in the roundabout Well - I've had enough fun now. And it's getting *&5ted cold in the cockpit... Cheers Mallard
  19. Hi ftx team... I've been spending a lot of time recently flying around at EGKA as it's such a great add-on and also it's my local airport. I was wondering about the possibility of a few enhancements to make it even better! Here are my suggestions for your consideration.... It's great to see all the extras that were included in the scenery such as Lancing College, the power station, cement works and the bridges that span the river Adur, but one of the main things it's missing is the huge bridge that's missing that spans the A27 just to the east of the airport. The fact that it isn't there just takes something away from the realism that has been created so well. Flying out of runway 2 you just expect to see it there out of the left side window. Could this be added given that it's such a large structure and so close to the airport? For your reference, here's a pic: http://www.glaucus.org.uk/ErringhamRoadBridge.jpg The green field you can see beyond under the bridge is the northern end of Shoreham airport. The next enhancement ) is railway tracks. At the southern end of the airport (end of runway 20) there is the south coast railway. In the EGKA scenery the area that the railway runs can be clearly seen running parallel with the roads and the coastline and there is also the railway bridge (beautifully modeled) which actually has the railway tracks, but no tracks either side of the bridge. Of course, if you're adding the railway tracks... and since the recently released EGHI has them.... what's the possibility of adding a Southern Railways train to run along them? It would look absolutely amazing and really bring the area to life with the additional animation. And finally.... and I think I might be stretching things a bit here... there are numerous electricity pylons that seem to be accurately placed in the area over the south downs - it would be great to see power lines running between them. Is it even possible to model power lines?? Anyway, as I say, a great scenery addon that includes a very generous area which is a real bonus and I would love to see these enhancements that I think would really finish it off superbly. Thanks and regards, curbz
  20. Some first impressions from a flight from Southampton to Shoreham Weather picked up during the flight Some cropping. Must say that I'm deeply impressed by what I've seen so far... Southampton airport looks absolutely stunning! Will have to do some serious exploring of the environs. Cheers Mallard
  21. Still testing Shoreham Carfiff and Dundee Some cropping, but nothing else. Cheers Mallard
  22. Three shots of my newest bird, the An-2, at Shoreham. Wasn't the best weather in southern England. Brighton Shoreham Power Station Parking at EGKA Enjoy and thanks for looking!
  23. Some from a Shoreham to Elstree cross-country flight in the Moth. The last one is cropped - the others are straight v-keys. Cheers Mallard
  24. BEA regrets having to inform you that the evening flight to Paris had to be cancelled due to thick fog . Cheers Mallard (Yup - they are edited)
  25. Jut a few shots from a round trip from Shoreham to Popham in the A2A Civilian Mustang (Big Beautiful Doll). The V-key was pressed at times when my hands weren't full of Mustang torque and sheer power/speed! A good challenge trying to get it stopped at Popham! Pre start checks on the ramp at Shoreham. Hazy day - beautiful scenery. Phew....!! Just made it at Popham! Stopped and shutdown. Peace... Gone for brunch. On the move to runway 26 at Popham - the trusty Antonov in the background. Exterior shot - Love this repaint! On approach, runway 20 at Shoreham Glideslope.....Check, Speed.....Check Taxi to parking - managed to land without hitting runway lights..... (this time!) I spy with my little eye.... Loving Orbx England and the sheer pace at which the airfields are being brought out, thanks for the hard work chaps!
