Upgraded from an AMD RX 580 to the AMD RX 6950 XT. Purchased X-Plane 12. A few images of an almost max'ed out X-Plane graphics settings.
The following are with January 1 set as the date. I like how X-Plane 12 automatically changes the tree's leaves (to depict winter) and with a change to the weather settings adds down a nice layer of snow.
The following are a few with winter settings but no snow on the ground.
General Flight Simulation Discussion
Not for Plane Spotting Image Uploads
I recently read Kerry McCauley's book "Ferry Pilot: Nine Lives Over the North Atlantic" in which Kerry joins the ranks of ferry pilots shuttling aircraft across the Atlantic. I found the book fun to read and now I want to experiment with a few across the ocean flights myself.
I plan to work up routes to test my fortitude to some of the closer places such as Narsarsuaq (BGBW). According to the book you need to fly to the NDB, turn outbound, fly that for 9 miles while descending to 4,200ft. Then make a standard rate left turn, descending to 3,600ft, then inbound descending to 1,800ft minimum descent altitude.
I guess the next thing I'll need to tackle is adjusting the fuel capacity of a Cessna 182 giving it the range it will need and also the weight load.
I've created (to the best of my abilities) a Little Navmap aircraft performance file for the Carenado Bonanza V35 with the SimCoder's Reality Expansion Pack (REP) add-on.
For Your Non-Flightsim Posts
With so many ADSB receivers feeding data into Flight Aware, Flight Radar 24, and other aggregation sites I am not surprised to have stumbled onto this.
The PSXseecon Traffic injector grabs real world ADSB data and feeds it to your MSFS, Prepar3D, or FSX flight simulator for you to see and enjoy in real time.
I haven't found anything like this for X-Plane yet but if I do I'll be sure to post about it.
