    Nice paint job.

    Two chop

    Fantastic lighting!
  3. The last update of P3D brought about PBR. Honestly I'm a bit vague on exactly what is does other than improve reflections in the sim based on the surface / material. PMDG introduced it to the their B747 product and some scenery developers (Imaginesim - WSSS) have also utilised it. I'm quite impressed...hard not to be with better visuals and not performance hit! Hope you like the screenshots.
  4. Think I will wait a few days until PTA has a update. Some great looking new features and no doubt LM are building a platform for the future.

    EGOV issue

    It might not necessarily be a ORBX issue. This can occur in P3Dv4 if the original scenery uses "old" FS9 code. It is fixable but only by creating your own .bgl using methods agreeable to P3Dv4. If you have a copy of FSX try the scenery in that. Very likely it will work just fine.
  6. The only one I can find is this - http://www.ukmil.org.uk/search.php?q=scenery&t=downloads&r=0 I think it is part of the UK2000 VFR package but how current the version is I do not know. There is a developer currently working on Lossiemouth who has Brize on his "todo" list - https://militaryaiworks.com/forums/9/16900?p=176344#p176344
  7. Stunning. That is a very dynamic colour set going on there.
  8. Exeter in this case in the shot above. Nice last night...
  9. Banking at fifteen degrees..I didn't spill a drop. I did drop my biscuit though!
  10. Nice...very atmospheric shots.
  11. Wain They do as far as I can tell. There might be one or two elevation conflicts but nothing that isn't fixable.
  12. The Q400 is right at home in Norway. If you haven't already then take a look at this freeware scenery which is amazing! https://www.flightsimnorway.com/
  13. Thank you ORBX. North & South America LC added to the library. Kids will be moaning when I hog all the bandwidth later!

    Very impressive and no PTA! I've never found the sweet spot with REX Skyforce but do use the Texture Direct / Soft Clouds which is very good.

    Nice shots. I always find the Q400 to be quite a handful on approach...you really have to watch the speed so carefully.
  16. I've never owned the ES products having sought them for several years hoping they might be found lurking in the depths of a Google search. This is great news and will look forward to adding them to my ORBX library.
  17. That HUD is fantastic and the flight deck is really tidy! @wain - The aircraft isn't actually that complex with pretty solid logic all the way through with one exception in that V Speeds are calculated by the EFB and then transferred to the FMC. Not that this is a complex feature just different. We might be able to set up a "one to one" sometime with it if you like?
  18. Wow...thanks all! When flying around the Alaskan Bush it can "feel" cold but never had to wear a scarf indoors yet!

    I think with a commercial aircraft, as with military, it helps improve the all round situational awareness of the flight deck crew. Certainly within FS (P3D in this case) you do feel much more comfortable with the HUD on approach then glancing or panning down every few seconds to check the instruments. It also makes for great screenshots!

    Morning all. Lots to like about the QW B787 not least the HUD. Nice to be able to enjoy the view out of the window while on approach into Barbados!
  21. Looks good. You got some good PTA profile going on there?
  22. I have a soft spot for "eye-candy" in FS. Those little things that add nothing to the simulation other than to make you smile and appreciate the "touch". The QW B787 has such a feature offering different colour cabin lighting. On a inbound sector to Manchester this week the cabin crew choose pink. Other colours are available of course!
  23. It is a super aircraft and Majestic have done a great job refining it. One feature that really impresses me is that despite it's high fidelity there is no performance hit in P3D / FSX that you might find with aircraft of similar detail. I took a "company" Q400 from Aberdeen up to Bodo last night via Bergen and it didn't miss a beat despite poor weather on the final sector.
  24. I'm normally in high 50's (laptop on cooling mat when running P3Dv4. It has gone up to around 10 deg's when under load with the higher ambient temperature. Thinking of gaming in the freezer if it gets much warmer!
