  1. Crossing London on a Winter's evening, flying over the Orbx London City Landmarks package in the trusty C172..... Jerry
  2. Man...... what on earth ^^ Just made some London roundtrip with the City update from Orbx and EGLC. Pics are a bit blurry, not sure why. In the sim its very crisp. Looks sweet anyway ^^ But i had to load in 3 times to be able to fly, the other 2 times i got a ctd here. Not sure if thats related to the scenery.
  3. X-Plane. Orbx EGLC London City Airport. But it's killed my frame rate. First, let me apologise again for the far to frequent use of the word fantastic. I will put a large yellow post-it on my monitor to remind me not to use it! And so we have a new Product from ORBX ie EGLC London City Airport. the download has a small error that they are working on regarding a Land rover file. I was so excited to see this airport arrive as it's my second home for Heli flying being the inroad to the great city of London. Now I will start by saying it might be me but with the same graphics settings that I usually run they have dropped on flat screen from 45 -50 to 9-20. at the moment it's virtually un-flyable for me. I have a 4.7 gig with 32 gigs of ram and a 1080 card. I think it's the type of system that many users will have? Perhaps aircraft will not have the problem the Heli pilot has or I hope I find a problem on the PC but everything else is running fine ie Arma 111 and DCS so perhaps this is one stage too far in terms of detail and low flying. Fingers crossed it can be put right or as I said I hope it's me! I don't want to be paying for detail that I have to turn down just to be able to fly a Helicopter low down in London. I will still say what a fabulous job they have done I only hope it's me because London is starting to look beautiful in X plane with the ORBX updates.

  4. During this terrible time of the Corona virus a lot people work at home. For me it was already quite usual, because I am retired. Nevertheless I walk around in my neighborhood (Netherlands - Enkhuizen) taking all necessary precautions. At home I do some drawing and fly around the virtual world using Prepar3D and the fantastic Orbx products (I on a lot of it). I create YouTube videos which are enjoyed by some people. The creations is really fun, because after flying I edit the movie using Screencast-O-Matic, a great product which is not expensive (I use it already about 6 years). During this proces it feels like I am at that location. In this way I am far away from Corona. More flights I created can be found at www.wilveenstra.nl I hope all of you will stay healthy and overcome this period. http://youtu.be/rFgdJaDSJz4?hd=1 Have a nice flight, Wil Btw, the end of the flight with the city of Birmingham looks terrible compared to the start.
  5. Joshua Cowan UH-1 Police Helicopter, Nimbus UH-1. And more rooftop landings in VR. Wonky's Blog! 90. So this week, as you will see from the Blog. I am trying to get to grips with why I can't land on Rooftops without a fair bit of practice. This VR episode is the Royal London Hospital and You can download the building for just £1.00 from the link below, and it works with Orbx South ie. London. One outside view at the end. More practice required. Being in lock down with the family, I think it might be one Blog a day for a while. could see that 100 videos a bit faster than expected. Also, the amazon Neck brace for Oculus mirror is working a treat with my dystonic tremor hopefully giving you a much less shaky experience. but I would recommend it for anyone doing a lot of VR use. I wish you and all your families good health during this period. Let's hope together we can all beat what Bill Gates said would happen in his Ted lecture all those years ago. Keep your distance and stay safe. Joshua Cowan UH-1 Police Helicopter version is another work of art. You need the original Nimbus UH-1 to start with and then download this beautiful version he created.
  6. All the other England airports work fine but London City doesn't show, in fact it disrupts/blocks default scenery. Is there a specific issue, I also have Global Base Pack, True Earth GB South and EU England.
  7. It's all about the location. London City Airport comes to life for Prepar3Dv4! Located a stone's throw away from Canary Wharf and the financial heart of the city, London City Airport is one of the last remaining true inner-city airfields. With one of the the most exciting approaches in Great Britain, flying into EGLC takes you over the iconic centre of downtown London. Servicing destinations across the UK, Europe, and until recently (and rather famously), New York via Shannon, the airfield hosts a bevy of airline and corporate types up to A318 in size. The short and narrow runway, coupled with the dramatic 5.5° approach and congested airspace, demands the complete attention of all pilots. So much so that all aircrew must be specially certified to fly in and out of the airport. From early proof-of-concept flights of Dash-7s landing on Heron Quays in the early 80s, the airport seen tremendous growth in recent years, with over 4 millions annual passengers passing through the terminal. London City is the first complete PBR airport for P3Dv4. Combining the latest P3D PBR technology, alongside other advanced features such as material scripting, EGLC brings this famous location to life in amazing detail. Perfect for a city infamous for it's weather, London City Airport features dynamic ground textures that react to rain and other adverse conditions. Designed to blend seamlessly with *TrueEarth Great Britain South, the airport's coverage includes many important short-finals landmarks such as the Tate & Lyle Sugar Factory and ExCeL Exhibition centre. Of course, we have ensured that the product also works (though not seasonally blended) with Global Base or Orbx EU England (LC Region) if this better suits your simming experience. *Note: a patch for TrueEarth GB South is currently in the works to improve general performance in the London area. AT A GLANCE The first complete PBR airport for Prepar3Dv4! Immaculate HD textures throughout Dynamic PBR groundpoly that reacts to weather and time of day Incredibly detailed GSE and static aircraft Coverage area includes major landmarks on short finals 60cm PR colour-matched to TrueEarth Great Britain South Beautiful dynamic lighting Designed to blend best with TrueEarth Great Britain South, also works with Orbx Global Base or FTX England Developed by the Turbulent Design team EGLC London City Airport for Prepar3Dv4 is now available to purchase from OrbxDirect for AUD$32.95 (approx. US$22 / €20.10 / £18.10) EGLC London City Airport will only be available to download from Orbx Central.
  8. I am having to delete the x plane preference file for every session after installing all the new library, London City Airport, and the update on true earth south. 9 to 10 FPS and the delete the file x plane preference file and restart 36 FPS for that one x plane session. But when it runs at 36 FPS London city airport looks fantastic. Posted a few screen shots in the screenshot group. and here is a a low down under London bridge to shows it does run at 36 FPS after deleting the file and starting again. It could be steam, It could be X Plane Beta, It could be Orbx. I dont think it's me as DCS and Arma11 are all fine. But it looks fantastic when it runs. Dave. Wonky Joystick Productions.
  9. Gentlemen, Background: I recently discovered that when I am on approach to EGLC, runway 27 my sim (FSX as well as P3D) literally freezes for a few seconds, over the river, on short finals. Furthermore i have 2 more stutters before landing and the last one usually messes up my landing rate making it impossible to use EGLC for the virtual airline i want to use it for. When i approach EGLC from the city side, all is well and I have no problem. I have lots of autogen on the EGLC apron but I am not too concerned about it currently. What I found on my system: By disabling EGTR in the scenery library I get about 5% of the freeze/stutter and the airport becomes usable. there is a point where the fps dives down to 15fps but halfway down the runway it goes back to 30+ fps. * I use Global Base, England, OpenLC & Vector plus EGTR in the area. The freeware EU airport are also enabled. All other 3rd part airports were disabled for testing purposes. Conclusion: There is at least two pieces of scenery causing this. By way of elimination I quickly found EGTR to be the biggest contributor but alas not the only one. I am still looking for the other naughty ones Questions: 1) Is this a known issue or am I just unlucky to have it? 2) Apart form disabling EGTR temporarily, is there another way to solve this? 3) Why would EGTR, that is more than 30 miles away, have this influence on this area? 4) Can you please patch and limit EGTR's visible range anyway? - I see no point in it influencing a place more than 30 miles away and I hate to think what it does to the VAS.usage Your consideration and assistance is appreciated. Regards, Nico
  10. A wee glimpse of this new bad boy. More to come once I've gotten to grips with it.
