  1. Nice work and very accurate terrain mesh. For those not wanting HD photo scenery you can download most of Europe free from this Italian guy http://italyphotoreal.weebly.com/ and he has made auto-gen too. Regards.
  2. This is part of the FAA web site and is a very useful way of searching for pilot information... https://www.faa.gov/licenses_certificates/airmen_certification/interactive_airmen_inquiry/
  3. No not with photo real scenery as the default FSX cartoon scenery is underneath so you wouldn't see the water. So you have to make a water mask in FSET which allows the FSX water to show through the photo scenery. Hope I'm making some sense here? Cheers Michael.
  4. I decided in a moment of madness to add the water effects to Lake Sainte Croix........................
  5. Thanks all for the compliments. Its FSET using 1M/PIX default resolution and the satellite images courtesy of Bing. Although we are over 100 Klms from the centre of the quakes the largest recorded at 6.5 it did rattle the house but no structural damage. Cheers Michael.

  10. Hi Kevin, The latest code is 200 cheers M
  11. I have made this FSX scenery at 30 cm per Pix and the pictures above are at 500 feet and 100 feet. It does not have a water mask as my simple method of creating the water is to use the default blue which matches the default colour in FSX with the "Water Effects" slider switched off.
  12. Thanks for your positive feed back. I just realized that the folder is not too big so I can We Transfer it to those of not too a nervous disposition if any forum member would like a copy. I should point out that it does not have a water mask just my simple method of painting in a similar colour to my FSX default blue so the "Water Effects" slider in FSX should be switched off.
  13. GE have moved on with their latest images for Jersey. My home made photo real scenery has been made in 30 cm per Pix and flying at 500 feet looks very good. In fact dare I say its far better than the Bing images!!

  15. A solar-power airplane landed in California late on Saturday night after a three-day flight across the Pacific Ocean. Pilot Bertrand Piccard landed the Solar Impulse 2 in Mountain View after flying nonstop for 62 hours. "You know there was a moment in the night, I was watching the reflection of the moon on the ocean and I was thinking 'I'm completely alone in this tiny cockpit and I feel completely confident.' And I was really thankful to life for bringing me this experience," Piccard said after he landed. Full story follow this web link...................... http://www
  16. During the wet days, not that there were many, and dark winter evenings I decided to try some on line courses and exams with the Aircraft Owners & Pilots Association in America. This also kept me busy while the computer downloaded satellite images for the flight simulators photo real scenery. First I tackled and achieved certificates of competence in various fields and levels with the AOPA. Then I went on to do an Aviation 101 course by the Embry-Riddle Auronautical University and was pleased to find it relatively easy with all the other course work I'd done previously.

  18. Hi Paul, The FS Earth tiles, FSET, is for the satellite imagery so if the country is covered by Google Earth and or Virtual Earth, the world is your oyster!!!!! Over the last two years I have made all of the UK, Ireland, Tuscany and Umbria here in Italy, Jersey, Malta and some parts of USA too. Once you start with this homemade scenery you will never stop, I can assure you of that. Have a go its a lot easier than you think! Cheers, M
  19. Hi again Eddie, Yes ADE will do that for you. Cheers, M
  20. Hi there Eddie, FSET is ONLY used to make the scenery. If you want to create your own airfields and or edit existing FSX airports you can use, as I do, the FREE software Airport Design Editor ADE 165. Hope this helps. Cheers, M
  21. Thanks Paul for sharing your ORBX scenery screenshots of Walney Island in the UK.. Its very interesting to compare the professionally made ORBX with my amateurish attempt at making photo real scenery with the free software FS Earth Tiles and the satellite images courtesy of Virtual Earth. The only additional software used are UK 2000 Airfields Vol 1, Vol 2 and Vol 3. I hope you don't mind me sharing some of my screenshots with you and other forum members. Thank you. Michael.
  22. This photo real scenery was made with the free software FS Earth Tiles and the satellite images courtesy of Virtual Earth. The only additional software used are UK 2000 Airfields Vol 1, Vol 2 and Vol 3. The airfield is Fishburn EG3D Sedgefield in the NE of England.
