Izagu Falls, Argentina FS2020 and an Cirrus SR22!


Recommended Posts

Today I started exploring areas that are outside of the United States. Totally wild since it is the real world now below us, what we see is what is there, and it is a Wonderful World to quote the song title of Louis Armstrong, and your welcome now, for me getting that stuck in all your heads. Muahahahahaha

 

Take off, Cataratas Airport

Approaching the Izagu Falls, with Hotel Cataratas just to the left, nestled in the forest.

Don't be afraid to use the drone camera and look around outside your aircraft. As I did so, you could actually hear birds chirping and tropical forest sounds around you.

Now I know what Real Environment Extreme Water Textures mean by Inland Brown settings - this is natural water color for this section of the Iguazu River

Hope you all enjoyed this flight as much as I did. :) Have a great night!

 

 

What a Wonderful World

Louis Armstrong

I see trees of green, red roses too

I see them bloom for me and you

And I say to myself, what a wonderful world

 

I see skies of blue and clouds of white

Bright sunny days, dark sacred nights

And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

 

The colors of the rainbow are so pretty in the skies

Are also on the faces of the people walking by

I see friends shaking hands saying

How do you do?

They're really saying I love you

I see babies cry, I watch them grow

They'll learn much more than I'll ever know

And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

Yes, I think to myself, what a wonderful world

I must say, this sim just kicks it! Just a stunning flight. It is a beautiful world!

 

I’m waiting to see someone pop the chute on that plane :cool:

Thanks David! Say, now I'll have to check that out myself! (about the chute, after all, chute happens!)

You might try flying south out of SCTE in Chile, along the border with Argentina. You will find not only volcanoes, but you can even see recent lava flows from them. This shot I took about a week ago, shows an estuary blocked by a recent flow. You can also see collapsed calderas from volcanoes that died and the cones collapsed back into the void.

BTW, how do you save multiple shots from a flight?

That is a beautiful shot! I'm impressed. I love the blockage of the lava flow even being captured!

 

What I do to save multiple shots, is Active Pause, then go into drone view, and then Windows Game Bar by Win Button and G key. There is a sub panel for captures, video recording, etc, and use the capture button. Easy peasy! :)

 

Glad you like the shot, and sorry for our differences the other night. Let's let bygones be bygones, shall we?

Nice choice of destination!

I had a go at finding Angel Falls. Found several falls and some very cool scenery... never quite found them.

 

It's so rewarding fly over another continent and actually feel like you've gone somewhere else.

Up until now we've had the same limited textures and angular blocky vector data layered with little regard for alignment.

 

I'm not claiming we've reached perfection here but the overall effect is approaching reality.

 

At least until you catch a glimpse of a solid block bridge. That would be number one on my fix it list. ;) -- Bob

Thanks Bob! I do agree with you on the way to approaching reality. It feels much more rewarding now indeed flying out of the country than ever before. Why I'm definitely going to do s structured round the world tour when I am finished free lance roaming. :)
