Thread: Night Landing in Sydney

  1. #1

    Default Night Landing in Sydney

    Thought I'd pop down to Sydney and enjoy the summer weather. (80*[email protected] 04:00.) This is the ORBX scenery package which I really enjoy. Having said that, in a place as detailed as this even at night the old 5.2G single core just can't keep up at a speed I can fly. So sadly, this is in P3d v4.5.

    After all the "upgrades," almost all the decent default aircraft were removed. (I guess they weren't willing to pay the copyright fees.) But they do have a couple of pretty good GA planes. This is one of them. Be aware! If you still have several good default aircraft in P3D, don't allow it to do "upgrades!" If it does, most of your favorite planes will probably disappear!

    Hope you enjoyed this approach! Maybe one of these days I'll have to time to do more flying again!

    Beautiful night captures of Sydney Michael. Very realistic contrast between the darkness and city lights.

    Thanks Folks!

    It's annoying when life gets in the way of one of your hobbies!! I'm trying to find more hobby time.

    And yes, even in summer, it's always darkest just before dawn.

    I need to remember to put a few space lines between shots. Looking at them now, especially taken in the dark of night, it seems they almost all run together.
