FS/X-Plane 2012 Inaugural Screenshot Thread

Sun Jan 01, 2012 5:44 pm

As the last thread was nearing 200 posts, and we've entered a brand new year...I thought a brand new screenshot thread would be appropriate. Plus my net has gone to the dogs lately, and it was giving me long-ish load times.

The previous thread is here: FS/X-Plane Fall/Autumn 2011 Screenshot Thread #8

Just a couple from me to start off the new year...

My first contribution in a while, finally got my new PC up and running, but am still tweaking FS9 and installing my custom AI. Took a break from that to take a flight from ORD-PGD with a Legacy 600. However after take off I ran into mechanical problems over LAF to where I could not climb above FL240, so I diverted to HUF for some software upgrades to my legacy 600 (new FDE installed).

I am the biggest bird into this airport in my sim, other biggest bird that HUF sees is a D328-100 from Berry Aviation

The mechanic found a new FDE (the original FDE with the aircraft and not the one in the Posky ERJ FDE Upgrade) and updated the aircraft with it, and I took it out on a test flight between HUF-OWB-HUF and ran into no problems. Climbed up to FL280 with no problem. Looks like tomorrow I can resume my flight to PGD.

I'd be a lot more help to you on that 744...   

So I've been watching this show on the weather channel called "Coast Guard Alaska", and that's inspired me to hop into a HC-130 and fly from PANC to PADQ: (haven't posted in a while, so if this is lengthy I apologize)

Engines started, ready to taxi

That's a great pic. I love the airports that we don't really get to see much of.

I downloaded the HJG 717 & was really excited about it. I was doing a KF flt from KUO - HEL. I got FISD FS Nordic scenery but I don't think my ENIAC could handle it.   Also the 717 panel wasn't the Mae West (it did say that it wasn't known if it was supported in anything other than XP so that could maybe explain the 5+ ctd's I had). Only a short hop but it was crap. Waaah. Nonetheless I think I got some nice shots.

Wana dedicate these to EDICHC!

Aurora Borealis cheered me up a little.

Now that's what I'm talkin' about...

I almost had a good shot of that UA B744 landing, but as it was landing, an A321 from US that landed short and taxied into the runway and then turned into my taxiway, ruined the shot. I linked it to a bad AFCAD file and with it being in the first 15 minutes of opening up the flight. I have replaced the AFCAD file and will soon be replacing the default ORD with the FS Dreamteam ORD.

Quoting aerdingus (Reply 4):
Me too! I love that you kept it realistic & diverted lol!

There was no way I was going to cruise at FL240, so I had to divert. Plus the FDE i was using, when I turned, my plane lost about 2000ft during the turn. I didn't want to have to put up with that for two and a half hours!  

The mechanics at HUF repaired the flight system in my Legacy 600 and I was able to continue my flight to PGD. Later in the day, I chartered a Cessna 402C and flew PGD-SFB, giving me a chance to check out a recently installed new freeware scenery for SFB.

Ahhh...the old checker board Kai Tak approach (you can see the checker at approx 10 o'clock). Much better!

A winner shot right there.

Aerdingus and myself tried to locate the checkerboard when we were in HKG in Nov, alas we could not find it mostly because it was already dark, secondly because I totally missed the park where it is, and thirdly because since the closure of Kai Tak they had no need to repaint it. But you can still see some of it.

We did managed to walk all the way to the site and cry at the sad sight of a massive construction site    at least we paid our homage to this Airplane Nut Mecca.

Talking about HKG, here some shots of my flight today, not into Kai-Tak but into the ¨Easy¨ one.

I'm doing an Airblue A319 flight MAN - IST - ISB. The airline does this in real life!    & previously with an A321. Currently just heading over LJU. Interesting: had an overspeed of m.095 then 2 seconds later a stall!   

Here's me A319 taxiing out past a ZB A330. Got the UK200 MAN scenery, looks really good but kinda made me computer slower at the start.

3K685/686 Singapore to Kuala Lumpur and back.

Raining cats and dogs in Changi as usual... guess the F/O will have to do the walkaround

Last night I took a 9E CR9 out for a spin between ORD-JFK. First night flight I've done in a while. I think I prefer day flying though.

http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a140/csturdiv/FlightSim/42/ScreenShot40.jpg
Pushing back and it looks like I started up at the wrong terminal and gate. Should be at T2 and not T3. Oh well, I hope AE does not mind.

http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a140/csturdiv/FlightSim/42/ScreenShot45.jpg
Overflying PWK, where I took my first two (and so far only) flight lessons. Airport is busy in real life, and if I had a proper AFCAD it would be busy in FS9 too. As I looked down and saw it was empty, I wondered why. After my flight I looked at the AFCAD and all parking spots were not connected to taxi links. Not sure how the author of the file could miss that!

Purchased the Thai Creations Macau scenery yesterday and did a flight there today to test it out.

I must say it´s pretty nice, very easy on the frames, very detailed, and the creator kinda modelled some of the important landmarks in the islands.

Here we go then.

Climbing out over Taipa Island, you can see Macau tower on the top left, New Lisboa Hotel & Casino just above the cockpit (weird lotus flower shaped building) and the Ferry terminal under the cockpit.

No clue why AC created Sky Regional to compete with Porter from Toronto City instead of utilizing Jazz, which is receiving Q400's anyways...

Still, AC Express paint looks good...

Then, I found Shangri-La in Alaska, and I was drawn up the canyon...

Those are all awesome!

A faint, but spectacular Auroral show at the initial cruise altitude of FL380.

So's that one.

On the more 'pedestrian' side, I took the CRJ-200 out again, this time as SKW6790, JAC-DEN:

So far I think this is the only -200 in the 'new' livery. Still haven't spotted its AI twin, though.

As old as this model is, see-through cabin windows are pretty cool.

Since it's only 16 degrees here in Gotham City, I felt like flying somewhere WARM. So, I decided to take the iFly 737 (sporting groovy UA retro colors) from SJU to BGI...

My first contribution in a long time, but I've been away from the sim for a long while!!!

Is this FSX? I'm considering getting it, but is it really worth the effort (long time FS2004 fan here!). I have a very good XP computer and would rather not have to change my PC just so I can get a new game....

First flight in a while. Took the Posky BBJ up for a spin. A corporation here in the Chicago area keeps theirs out at DPA in the western suburbs. And I took it up today for a short flight between DPA-BOS.

Cold overcast day in the Chicago area, snow is coming.

Pushing back to head to 2L for departure.

Whats a matter, could not afford a real business jet?

http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a140/csturdiv/FlightSim/43/ScreenShot12.jpg
DPA has runways plenty long enough for the BBJ.

And we are off to the East Coast, gonna get me some Sam Adams fresh from the brewery!

Visual approach into Beantown, don't worry, I made it in fine.

See, made it down just fine!

The other day I finally found a working panel CFG for the POSKY 777 for FSX, and now I've gone about crazily adding models and soundpacks and liveries...but I did take time out to fly it a little bit! Here's one Delta's 777-200LRs, operating a 'proving run' from SAV to ATL:

Departing Savannah. The 110,000-lb-thrust GE90s made short work of the takeoff run  http://i892.photobucket.com/albums/ac122/YX58712/2012-1-20_16-43-14-312.jpg
Lifting off to the east off of runway 10

Cruising at 28,000 feet

http://i892.photobucket.com/albums/ac122/YX58712/2012-1-20_17-9-24-375.jpg
Elegantly curvaceous wings. I used this angle because it hides the worst of the fuselage lightmaps for this particular livery.

Turning toward Atlanta at 3,000 feet

I didn't take any pictures of the approach because visibility dropped to about 1/8 mile, so I was pretty much focused on the landing. Other than that, enjoy!
