View Full Version : Rescuing Jan. AGAIN!!!!!!

09-05-2008, 05:59 AM
Well I only had time to enter my lucky Lotto numbers for tonight, when I was told that our heroic Dutch friend Mr Peer had gone and done it again.
Not in a submarine this time, but an aircraft. Some far off island with friendly female locals and a bar. Why does he always crash in these sort of places??? It's costing me a bomb in fuel to keep rescuing him.Oh well, a friend in need, is a friend indeed.

Oooh, very nice shots, the sun on the horizon is great, the water looks very nice too :cool:

09-05-2008, 06:14 AM
Thanks Josh. This was FSX with Light Bloom enabled. The water is just bulk standard FSX, but I have got a utility whereby you can change it. :):)

09-05-2008, 06:15 AM
Light bloom looks like it adds so much!

09-05-2008, 06:16 AM
And it takes so much as well performance wise, well on my rig it does. :o

09-05-2008, 06:26 AM
The last time I tried FSX on my computer, I didnt even make it to 10 FPS, and that was with everything set to nothing! At least you can run FSX!

09-05-2008, 06:35 AM
I'm doing quite well. Quite high frame rates except at the most detailed of airports. Haven't set any AI up yet though. :confused::confused:

09-05-2008, 07:01 AM
Awesome shots. Takes me one step closer to investing in FSX seeing shots like these. :cool:

Though I'd need to upgrade the PC first so starts getting a bit expensive just for eye candy.

09-05-2008, 07:28 AM
Great Pictures Simon! Awesome Work again! :eek:
But why did you take an Helo? :confused:
Don't you know what happens if Mr. Peerhoven and an Helo come close to each other? :D:D Better don't give him an Seat in the Front when flying back! :rolleyes:

09-05-2008, 08:01 AM
First thing I saw in my Hanger. :D:D

09-05-2008, 08:48 AM
:eek: I love your water :eek: I want to steal it :D. Your sun effects are great!!

A question: What program do you use for water?

Smutley, the boss :cool:

09-05-2008, 10:02 AM
Wow, what a nice Helo!! I made a landing place next to the bar. You'll like it here :cool::cool: Because of my natural born ability to conquer the forces of nature I was elected as CHIEF of the island. The position of Minister of Defence and Liquors is still a vacancy. ;) I'm afraid I have to charge you for every helo landing, a new law, sorry, my statue in front of the bar will cost a fortune. :D

What a great shots my friend, I didn't realise I was that far away......:eek::eek:

09-05-2008, 12:38 PM
Outstanding Helo Simon,Your water texture is amazing in these shots! And thanx for the assist in searching for our lost Dutchman!:D

09-05-2008, 12:53 PM
FUNNY!!!! Brilliant shots and I love the story that has developed from this post!!! I don't want the defence part, but I don't mind being minister for liquor. When do I have my interview?

09-05-2008, 01:32 PM
Nice Simon - Hope you found Jan? :D

09-05-2008, 02:37 PM
Andrew: Sorry, my mistake, it means you have to defense the liquor...:D

09-05-2008, 02:49 PM
Very good, I will apply for that job then! Only, there may not be any left to defend for very long!!!! :):)

09-05-2008, 02:51 PM
You're on my friend :p Don't worry, it's the most important national industry on the island.:D

09-05-2008, 03:54 PM
Very nice simon,:), I cant fly Helicoptors yet, evey time i end up flying slow and accidently pressing the Rudder then, well. Lets just say you might need to help me :eek:

09-05-2008, 07:21 PM
:eek: I love your water :eek: I want to steal it :D. Your sun effects are great!!

A question: What program do you use for water?

Smutley, the boss :cool:

Jorge, this is bulk standard FSX water. But there is a program called FS Water Configurator available here at flightsim. Just do a search for water.

Thanks for the great replies eveyone. :):)

09-05-2008, 08:59 PM
Those are some really atmospheric shots, nice work Simon. :)

09-06-2008, 04:59 AM
Thanks Leo. :):) Must try and fly in FS9 again. :o

09-06-2008, 05:42 AM
Yes Smutley, the default water in fsx is really good, I have fs2004 a century of flight because there are more addons and airports. Thanks for your help

09-06-2008, 06:08 AM
No problem Jorge. For FS9 you could always try Flight Environment. Water, cloud and sky replacement tetures.


09-06-2008, 06:37 AM
Thanks Smutley, I use it, Flight environment with ground environment and I love the dark water. I canīt see details because all my flights I do I fly more than 25000 ft. Your screens are so special

09-06-2008, 06:50 AM
I'm normally above 25000 ft, but I've had a change of heart lately. :):)

09-06-2008, 07:10 AM
Did Jan really need rescuing or did you just want to join in on the fun?

Great shots. Just love those water and sunset textures.


09-06-2008, 07:35 AM
I just fancied a quick beer and a converstion with the lovely females Mike. ;);)

09-06-2008, 08:18 AM
So what will be my purpose on the Island then? http://www.la-furious.de/Smileys/scratch.gif

09-06-2008, 08:27 AM
I'll have a think at work this afternoon. :rolleyes:

09-06-2008, 12:38 PM
I fainted when i saw the 4th shot, so pretty ^^, thanks for the great shots, you want me to go flying again now.. i should hurry into my piper cherokee 180 now before the sun is gone already!

09-06-2008, 01:27 PM
Beautiful collection of shots Simon:cool::cool:

09-06-2008, 06:58 PM
Thanks KiddieCake and Glenn. :):)

KiddieCake, I do hope you didn't hurt yourself when you fainted. :D:D

09-07-2008, 07:17 AM
Fantastic shots Simon! :cool: and good job on rescuing our heroic friend...Regarding your question of why he always crashes in places like those, i took this pic in a former flight we did in a CV-580 ..


Just by coincidence there were many hot babes and the nearby bar was cheap...and yes, we ended in jail...

Have a nice day amigo!

09-07-2008, 07:24 AM
Hey Carlos buddy, thanks for the reply. You really shouldn't let Jan push any buttons you know. :D:D Btw where is our heroic Dutch friend, I can't see anyone wearing pink speedos on the beach. :confused: Must be in the bar already. :D:D

All the best amigo. :):)
