  1. YSRI - RAAF Base Richmond N.S.W.

    Wow!. Looks great. Cheers, gibo
  2. NSW-VIC-TAS Imagery scenery

    Here is a short demonstration video on how low is acceptable for lower resolution scenery. The flight is over rural areas in a fast tactical jet. This type of flight does not require autogen as what you see are "real" features. PC performance is excellent, actually better than default scenery with autogen enabled. Cities obviously require tall buildings for realism. The video is a flight in an F-35 north of Williamtown RAAF base where Australia's first F-35's will be based. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNRhdhWkuj8&t=19s
  3. Vertigo Studios (their website is back online!)

    Andrew, The Panther is one of my favourites and the movie, "Bridges of Toko Ri'" featuring the Panther is one of my favourite movies. Here is the VS Panther in a short video and the VS Spad in a short test video that I made.
  4. I have "bit the bullet" again and purchased 15m imagery for the above states to enhance en-route above medium altitude flights. Here are a few early screenshots. Northern NSW east to west. Default sometimes in background (Prepar3d v4). I hope to release NSW and maybe Vic by Christmas. It will be available at the Flightsim Store, PC Aviator and FS Pilotshop. Cheers, gibo
  5. I have just upgraded my Dash 8 and set auto pilot to ALT 22,500ft and took some snaps My method for water along the coastline. In front of the aircraft is the imagery water. Behind the aircraft is sim water with between the two blended. The belend area looks like a fingerprint in this instance. The imagery shallow water shown in the following two snaps
  6. I have made the following video which is a YouTube link only at the moment until I have obtained permission from Qantas to use the soundtrack from one of their commercials. Until I receive permission please do not post the link on other sites.

    Hey Scott, Beautiful screenshots! What clouds are you using? Thanks in advance, Norm
  8. New Australian Photoreal - NT

    Hi, Scott has pretty well summed up the scenery. It is 15m Landsat 8 resampled to 12.5m, but safer to say 15m. I have ORBX ground textures and Alice Springs. I turn what ever I want to use on and off via the scenery library. NT is placed at a lower level that the airports and librarys. From the Imagery provider "..using new (2013-2016) satellite imagery. NextGen products are mosaics of multiple pan-sharpened Landsat 8 scenes that have been carefully processed and balanced to provide high quality color and contrast....100% "true color" imagery. This means it is built from Landsat 8's bands 4, 3 and 2 (which image in the red, green and blue wavelengths of light similar to those in which the human eye sees), along with the 15-meter band 8 for pan-sharpening. So the colors look truly natural (as you would see them from an airplane), .." I have purchased the imagery thus need to sell and hopefully recover funds to create more states. ORBX Alice Springs colour matches perfectly with the imagery as does Anthony's Tindal and Darwin. The scenery is prefect for cruising above mid altitudes where takeoff and landing are from detailed airports. The scenery does not take up a lot of HD space as does a higher resolution and is very friendly on Frame Rates. I have made a video with background music of a Qantas Television commercial. The video is on YouTube with a link only view. I have requested permission from Qantas to make the video public, it is link only at the moment. If anybody is interested in a preview of the vid send me a PM or email and I will send you a link to watch. Here is a video of a C-130 departing Darwin and cruising at 22,000ft south of Darwin. Towards the end I overfly Anthony's Tindal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rT58DxRBgIg&t=6s Cheers, gibo
  9. This is the MILVIZ P38 with VRS Tacpack over Scott's beautiful scenery of France. I have set up a railway map for use in [email protected] ccp and have a steam train that will travel along the "real" rail on the PR scenery. I was also going to use ccp to have landing craft heading to the beach at Normandy but the rail map caused hiccups in JOSM so I settled for a rail network around Calais. Here is the P38 firing at the train and a couple of targets. The train would not move and expel steam for some reason. I will have to sort that out later. Love the aircraft and the scenery!
  10. YRAY Rose Bay PR

    Wow. Looks good Scott.
  11. Fabulous X15

    That second last (B&W) looks good!
  12. This is a fabulous freeware aircraft from France VFR over Scott's beautiful scenery of France. The camouflage blends in nicely against the scenery. Thanks again Scott. Cheers, gibo
