  1. Took another plane for a quick joyride, Ants T-28A demo aircraft, and that is one well made airplane. The Textures are the best I´ve seen yet, systems are done quite fine, not too happy with the external sound system for now, but internal is sweet as well. Heading for the runway, weather is fair enough. And up we are, wheels coming in. Gaining some altitude to get some momentum out of it. That bird is heavy and not too powerful. A quick buzz of the tower in old Top Gun flavor And up for a Split S. Turning out, heading back down to regain airspeed. And coming down from a Hammerhead turn. A high altitude roll over the runway. Almost time to land. But still room for one more medium low pass over the runway. Setting her back down, the runway looks more like a carrier from here in lenght. Was plenty of room remaining though. And tucked her away. KRDD and the T-28 are both stunning addons, need to add the other (payware) variants of the aircraft some day. If you like those kind of planes and you haven´t tried it, look it up, worth a try for sure!
  2. With the Staggerwing from Redding-Benton to Lake Tahoe for a skiing weekend Enjoy and thanks for looking! P3D - ASN Weather Cheers Karsten
  3. A few from Cloverdale to Benton: It's now pretty much at the point where I can happily fly from Orbx airport to Orbx airport in this part of the world without feeling like I'm covering the same ground day after day (especially when I realise how many I've installed and never actually visited!).
  4. It has been a long time since I last flew. It's time to take out FSX again, and dust of my VOR navigational skills. I love California (and of course the NorCal addon from ORBX), so I decided to take a Cessna 182 to an early morning spin. This morning's flight was from Benton (O85) to Half Moon Bay. KHAF is my favourite airport since Flight Unlimited II, can't wait for Misha to bring this airport to us (hopefully still this year)! The NorCal region already did some updates to it, but it is still light years from proper ORBX treatment... In Northern California, there is so much to see! Starting the day at Benton Field in a trusty old C182, 5:00am. The sun is just peeking on the horizon yet! Taxiing... Takeoff! The Bay awaits! Just after takeoff. NorCal is so realistic! Looking back at the still sleepy Redding This is what I like about real weather: looks like there are some surprises mounting on the horizon (I know, I should have checked the weather before, like every good pilot does)! Lake Berryessa (also reminds me of Flight Unlimited II) More and more clouds as I'm getting closer to the Bay Area. The City Suburbs of San Francisco in the middle of the soup Getting closer to KHAF, time to lower the landing gear! Moments before touchdown... ...and safely on the ground. Time to taxi! Finally, stopping in front of the (not-yet-there) Three-Zero Cafe. Time for a nice breakfast! I can't wait for ORBX KHAF!
  5. The Gabelschwanzteufel (Fork-tailed devil, as it was known in Germany) on a flight from Ganser Field to Benton Field Not landing at Redding this time around... Had engine fouling and cockpit-window-icing during the flight - but still made it Cropped DX10s Cheers Mallard PS - this is what it looks like, when the windscreen ices over. Took me a while to realise what was going on (I initially thought I had hit a fog layer...)
  6. A medical airlift from Ganser Field to Benton Field (it's closer to the hospital than KRDD). Some pesky tourist out hiking in the woods tripped over a root and had to be taken to hospital. The doc said there was not much he could do - the tourist would have to be airlifted to Redding and the facilities available there... So an EagleMed Learjet was called in Cropped DX10s Cheers Mallard PS - anyone know what that strange effect is from the jet exhausts showing several feet away from the actual engines??
  7. G'day All, Thanks to everyone for the wonderful feedback on our recent Cairns and Broome Triple Installer releases - I hope that this has given you all a chance to re-explore the tropical parts of Northern Australia in both sims Next on my Triple-Installer list is probably the one I've had the most requests for - and incidentally the last non-P3D2 compatible airport released by ORBX - Redding for Northern California. Originally released twelve months ago, Redding was a slightly unusual project for me - rather than sticking to the airport and surrounds, I decided to model two full airports in HD (Redding Municipal KRDD and Benton Field O85), a detailed hospital helipad (Mercy Medical Centre) and a large cityscape with plenty of landmarks to boot. Because of the many components involved, this has been a deceptively time-consuming task to make fully P3D2 compatible, and I'm very excited to show a few screenshots from the new version. For those not familiar with the area, Redding is one of the largest cities in the Sacramento Valley, as well as being gateway to the Shasta Cascade region immediately to the north. Many may be familiar with the large CalFire Fire Attack Base at KRDD; as well as being home to several interesting fire bomber aircraft types (several of which have been modeled in the scenery), it is also home to the large Smoke Jumpers training centre. The terminal at Redding is currently undergoing a significant expansion; what you see here is the new building as it will look when complete; reference material was based on architectural plans and artist renderings. As well the fire base and terminal, Redding is home to several other large FBOs including Redding Jet Centre (catering to business jet traffic), Shasta Air (eggbeater heaven!) and several others. Keep an eye out for a few other rarities, including an ex-RAAF Canberra bomber awaiting renovation. Benton Field is a small GA airpark approximately 12 miles from Redding, with an interesting approach over plenty of downtown landmarks. The local FBO (Hillside Aviation) is a hub of activity, keen an eye out for the plethora of aircraft undergoing maintenance, as well as a certain (in)famous cellphone-obsessed lady hanging around the cafe deck (!). As well as the FBO, Benton is home to the local Police Air Wing and many private aircraft owners. Mercy Hospital and plenty of other local landmarks have been included in the cityscape coverage area. Keep an eye out for the world-famous Sundial Bridge, as well as eight other custom-modelled bridges, the new City Hall, local County Jail, shopping complexes, schools, sports fields and others. New Features for Triple Installer/Service Pack 2: - Full compatibility with Prepar3d V2 - Updated terminal and tower textures including environment mapping - New runway and apron lighting system for better performance - New airport ground poly source to fix DX10 night splash issues - Fixes to APX for better ground handling, navaid fixes and AI control - Minor updates to animated people and generic ground vehicles - Other minor visual fixes For full product details and information, please visit the Redding Product Page. All screenshots taken in P3Dv2 Enjoy! Jarrad Redding Municipal Airport (KRDD): Benton Field (O85): Mercy Medical Centre: Redding CityScape:
  8. Some pics from two flights with the 222B - both times checking out the helicopter landing pads included in the sceneries The first set taken at and around Bathurst The second set taken at and around Redding More or less cropped Cheers Mallard
  9. So I got hold of this fine little chopper at Benton Field... ...but the guy selling it pointed out that it had to go for a service soon. So I decided to take it to the agency over at Redding Municipal right away That looks about right Easy does it Cropped DX10s Cheers Mallard
  10. Got the Bronco out at Redding Now for the show-off bit - a low pass over BentonField Which resulted in the reaction I had hoped for (Okay - from this angle it does look like Shirley's getting ready to clap her hands - but, of course, she's actually on her phone... again...) Cropped DX10s Cheers Mallard
  11. G'day everyone, I'm very excited to unveil the first shots of my latest project, Redding for Northern California. Given this is the first airport for our latest region product, I thought it best to model two airports in full HD, along with an expansive coverage area and plenty of landmarks. This product not only includes Redding Municipal Airport (KRDD), but also Benton Field (O85), Mercy Medical Center helipad and Redding cityscape all rolled into one. Between these areas, there should be something suitable for all types of flyers; KRDD is capable of handling up to 747/C-5 size aircraft, O85 is a lovely airpark close to the Redding city center, and Mercy Hospital provides a unique and detailed landing area for helicopter pilots. Redding was a "heavy request" from several of our team; in fact four of our developers and testers have lived and worked in Redding, and I've been delighted to spend the last couple of months bringing the project to fruition. For those not familiar with the area, Redding is one of the largest cities in the Sacremento Valley, as well as being gateway to the Shasta Cascade region immediately to the north. Many may be familiar with the large CalFire Fire Attack Base at KRDD; as well as being home to several interesting fire bomber aircraft types (several of which have been modeled in the scenery), it is also home to the large Smoke Jumpers training center. The terminal at Redding is currently undergoing a significant expansion; what you see here is the new building as it will look when complete; reference material was based on architectural plans and artist renderings.

Keep an eye out for the world-famous Sundial Bridge, as well as eight other custom-modeled bridges, the new City Hall, local County Jail, shopping complexes, schools, sports fields and others. FEATURES - TWO Ultra-detailed & low-impact airports: Redding Municipal KRDD and Benton Field O85 - Ultra-detailed rendition of Mercy Medical Center helipad - Huge coverage area at 30/60cm including the majority of the City of Redding - Ten new StaticFlow models, variations and skins created exclusively for Redding Airport, including ex-RAAF Canberra Bomber and CalFire attack aircraft - Advanced rendering & ambient occlusion techniques - Nine custom-modelled bridges including the famous Sundial Bridge, extended rail bridge and many others - Many landmarks and POI included in the coverage area; shopping centers, schools, sports grounds and many others - Full suite of ObjectFlow, PeopleFlow2, TextureFlow and CreatureFlow - Designed to blend seamlessly with FTX NA GOLD NORTHERN CALIFORNIA COVERAGE BENTON FIELD O85 MERCY MEDICAL CENTER DOWNTOWN REDDING REDDING MUNICIPAL AIRPORT KRDD Cheers!

  12. Ok, here we are, reddi for boarding: Please follow the advise of the service crew. "To our left there is the famous Sundial Bridge!" (And fot the simmers amongst you, do not forget to enjoy DX10´s cockpit light effects.) Keep our fingers crossed the bridge is solid. Anybody here who wants to hop off at Mercy Hospital? Next stop: ... at Hillside aviation. As you can see, our (in)famous passenger is already back on the phone...
  13. Annie on a spin over Redding - this Cuban bird certainly is a long way from home Departure from Benton Field Higer altitude fly-by over Benton Field And passing over KRDD Waiting for maintenance All straight v-keys Cheers Mallard
  14. G'day everyone, As we put the final spit and polish on Redding in preparation for release, Graham Eccleston and I would like to show a few screenshots of a little something we've been quietly working on in the background; NA GA Traffic update 1.2. This small update to the highly popular freeware FTX NA GA traffic package will add a bunch of updates, most of which will be populating Redding (KRDD) and Benton Field (O85) with GA, corporate and Fire Attack AI. The Version 1.2 update is currently in testing and shouldn't be too far away from release. Cheers, Jarrad
  15. G'day Everyone, Thank you all for the wonderful feedback to my first batch of Redding preview shots last week. Things are progressing very well behind the scenes, with final beta candidate going into the hands of our beta testers very shortly. In the mean time, I thought I'd showcase some of the areas not yet revealed around Redding; most important of which being the Fire Attack Base at KRDD. Smoke Jumpers, Fire Attack Aircraft and associated infrastructure dominate the northern section of Redding Airport, and in addition to the buildings themselves, I've custom modeled S-2 Turbo Tracker and Bell 209 Fire Cobra aircraft specifically for this package. Outside the airport itself, I've also decided to showcase different sections of the very large coverage area - locals may spot a few known landmarks along the way. Cheers! Jarrad
