  1. Hello Orbx, Thank you for the quick upgrade to Prepar3D v5. I just made some patterns at Sedona and suddenly seems to hit the hill on final runway 3. Hopefully, video recording was on (don't look at poor quality) : On the video, it seems I strangely hit something slightly above 5'200 ft. I verified that the hill is at less than 4'900 ft in the sim scenery (same altimeter settings) : On a french simmer forum, there is also a report of someone a similar crash in other location. Am i the only one at Sedona facing this issue ? What should I check ? Thanks for your help,
  2. There’s a lot of cool stuff at this airport and the surrounding area including some interesting animations. These screen shots don’t really do it justice, but I thought I would post a few anyway. Right now I need to get back to exploring all the new airports I snapped up on this excellent 47 for 31 ORBX sale. Orbx - FTX: Global KSEZ Sedona Airport in Christen Eagle "star trek" livery
  3. It's a long time I have been flying in Sedona. Today, in Sedona (v1.05) there are strong thermals, making the aircraft pitch down, and very easy to bounce, on landing. Are there strong thermals in v1.05? How to turn them off? I don't remember having had any trouble there in the past.
  4. This time, it's Sedona (KSEZ) - in arid Arizona: There's an amazing amount of static detail to enjoy - plus the dramatic setting! Adam.
  5. A few great ORBX scenery shots around KSEZ (with the Civilian Dude of course) Big Mac & Fries please. Thank You ORBX & Jarrad Marshall for this scenery, Stunning!!!
  6. G'day everyone, I am delighted to lift the veil off my latest project, KSEZ Sedona Airport for FTX Global. Following on from the recent Palm Springs Intl, I have decided to tackle a different type of airport, heading a little further east into the heart of the American Southwest. This product not only includes a highly-detailed rendition of Sedona Airport, it also includes a huge coverage area encompassing the northern portion of the Verde Valley, as well as the escarpment and canyons heading north towards Flagstaff. Not for the faint-hearted aviator, Sedona is a challenging airport suitable for GA, small-large business jets, military aircraft and helicopters. Situated in central Arizona, Sedona is conveniently located a short flight away from other scenic destinations such as Grand Canyon Airport, Pheonix, Las Vegas, Monument Valley and Palm Springs. As an added bonus, I've also included a "lite" airfield just beyond the southern perimeter of the coverage area; Cottonwood Airport (P52) is located in the lower portion of the Verde Valley. Sedona is a city straddling the northern Verde Valley in central Arizona. Famous for its scenic beauty, Sedona is home to dramatic red sandstone formations that provide a dramatic skyline from all areas of the city. The area came to prominence in the Hollywood Golden Age, with dozens of Western movies shot on location, including 3:10 to Yuma (1957), Guitar Johnny (1954) and Angel and the Badman (1947), amongst many others. In more recent years, Sedona has become a major tourist hub, with hiking, mountain-biking and other outdoor activities proving highly popular around the nearby canyons and mesas. Arguably as famous as the town itself, Sedona Airport (KSEZ) is often given the moniker of "America's Most Scenic Airport" - they even put up a sign at the airport saying as much! A small non-towered airport, the airfield is nonetheless highly popular with pilots and tourists due to its scenic location. KSEZ is perched atop a high mesa approximately 500ft above the surrounding townsite; this coupled with the surrounding terrain makes Sedona a highly dangerous airfield for landings from either runway direction. Turblence and "hot-and-high" conditions have been factors in many crashes at the airport over the years. Home to dozens of GA aircraft of all sizes, the airport is also home to all types of business jets, with even the largest of types (Gulfstream VI, Global Express etc) able to make use of the 5200ft runway. As well as these types, the airport regularly hosts visits from nearby USMC and USAF bases; the large helipad situated at the southern end of the field was specifically constructed to cater for CH-53 helicopters. Regular tourist flights are conducted from the airfield; several FBOs provide scenic charters utilising Jetranger helicopters and WACO YMF-5 biplanes. Additionally, I'd like to use this opportunity to let you all know that it is very important to install the latest ORBXlibs alongside Sedona. Whilst it always important to ensure you have the latest ORBXlibs installed, it is even more so with Sedona as the new custom autogen variants are included - a vital component of the scenery package. As such, if you are looking forward to purchasing KSEZ I'd recommend running the following steps: 1. Go to fullterrain,com/support and download the latest version of the ORBX Libraries 2. Once installed, open FTX-Central via the shortcut on your desktop, select a region and press apply. This will cycle and update core autogen files to the latest versions. 3. This process can be done either before or after installing your purchased copy of Sedona. I hope these screenshots give a good idea of what to expect with this scenery - keep an eye on the forums over the next week for more information and screenshots! FEATURES - Ultra-detailed rendition of KSEZ Sedona Airport - Huge coverage area at 30cm and 1m resolution - over 800 sq km in total! - Entirely new Custom HD Autogen Vegetation exclusive to Sedona; over 21 new desert types heavily optimised for best performance. - Custom Static Aircraft unique to KSEZ, including WACO YMF-5 and Learjet 35 types. - Ten new ground vehicle types specific to Sedona Airport - Advanced rendering, ambient occlusion and unique night-lighting methods used for maximum realism - Custom landclass, vector data, custom seasons file and 10m Holgermesh to ensure maximum fidelity. - Plenty of VFR landmarks and POI to explore including the Midgley Bridge, Chapel of the Holy Cross, Teal Arches McDonalds, City Lookout, Shrine of the Red Rocks and many more. - "Lite" rendition of nearby Cottonwood Airport (P52) featured, including 30cm resolution photoreal underlay. - Unique animated wind-chimes dynamically controlled by wind speed. - Full suite of ObjectFlow, PeopleFlow2, TextureFlow and more included - Strongly optimised for good performance with complex aircraft types - Designed to blend seamlessly with FTX GLOBAL (Base) in both P3Dv2 and FSX/P3Dv1.4. COVERAGE AREA Enjoy! Jarrad
  7. See differences between 16:9 and 21:9 (Ultrawide) display on Prepar3D. Featured 29Palms Twentynine, Orbx Sedona and Orbx Monterey. Make your own point of view ;-) Hardware configuration : http://20-100-video.blogspot.fr/2016/01/prepar3d-and-pc-hardware-update-dec15.html
  8. There was a nasty haze cloud layer early this morning, so I had to wait around before it went away. But when it did, and I was able to let the girl really stretch her legs...
  9. It took me 2 seconds to buy this scenery... VirtualCol Dash 8 Q300
  10. G'day Everyone, Thankyou all for the wonderful response so far to the initial previews of Sedona Airport. Development and beta testing is tracking well, I'm looking forward to sharing this with you all soon. Whilst the team are putting the airport through it's paces, I thought I'd show a few more different features of the airport scenery. I've included a few notes as we haven't showcased many of these components in our previous promo shots. Additionally, I'd like to use this opportunity to let you all know that it is very important to install the latest ORBXlibs alongside Sedona. Whilst it always important to ensure you have the latest ORBXlibs installed, it is even more so with Sedona as the new custom autogen variants are included - a vital component of the scenery package. As such, if you are looking forward to purchasing KSEZ I'd recommend running the following steps: 1. Go to fullterrain,com/support and download the latest version of the ORBX Libraries 2. Once installed, open FTX-Central via the shortcut on your desktop, select a region and press apply. This will cycle and update core autogen files to the latest versions. 3. This process can be done either before or after installing your purchased copy of Sedona. But enough with the public service announcements, back to the screenshots! Cottonwood Airport: This is a "lite" bonus airport that I've included in the package just outside the main PR area; located approximately 10 miles south of Sedona, the airport features an updated APX, ORBXlibs content, and most importantly a sharp 30cm photoreal underlay with full autogen annotation. This will provide a nice stop-over for flights exploring the southern edges of the Sedona coverage area. Chapel of the Holy Cross: An architectural landmark in the Verde Valley area, the church is constructed into a red-rock butte and was opened in 1956. The Teal Arches: Due Sedona City's strict building codes, commercial premises must abide by colour codes suited to the surrounding desert landscape. As such, the local McDonalds restaurant is the only one in the world to feature a teal-coloured Arches and muted shopfront signage. The Midgley Bridge: Opened in 1939, this bridge was based on a scaled-down version of the famous Navajo Bridge a little further to the north. Bridging a small off-shoot of the Oak Creek Canyon, the bridge provides a perfect opportunity to test your aerobatics skills Oak Creek Canyon: Just a small portion of the enormous 800sq km coverage area, follow the State Hwy 89A up the canyon as far as the switchbacks at Pumphouse Wash, a few short miles south of Flagstaff-Pulliam Airport. Landable Portable Helipads: Test your helicopter landing skills on these two pads located out the front of the Red Rock Helicopter Tours FBO. The derelict building in the background of this shot is actually the old RR Tours FBO building; it is now used as an occasional fire safety training ground by the local Fire Department. Cheers, Jarrad
