Drool away, but note that my computer is suffering from the stress that FSX gives off more so now than before. It's about time to upgrade but I can't really get a new computer on a whim. Good luck getting a new computer to play FSX.

@Halcon: Awesome! X-Wing and Falcon, reminding me of my newbie FS9 days. Used to fly all these fantasy stuff until I got more serious with it. Even had a Homeworld ship in it I believe.

Can I bother you in trying to make Busou Shinki World Airlines skin for a 737? Whatever you can make? I'll give a crack at it after G-Anime and blogging blacklogs:P

@Nas: Those weather stuff seems to be the most accurate. It seems to please me more in X-Plane but I do have my fun with weather in FSX. I had to deal with fog and rain the past few flights. Even a few thundestorms here and there. Need more images!

*** SEATTLE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT - KSEA ***

Seattle International, ICAO: KSEA, one of the few airports on X-Plane 10 that has scenery by default. Love the work that they did on it.

Perhaps being in an F-22 in BVR setups feels like a Ninja shooting away AMRAAMs at targets that can't see you...

..well, at least until they have refined their Low Frequency Radars that is....

Excellent pictures Pauldy!

I really need to get back to get more pics of X-Plane 10. Need to run a graphics stress-test now that my GPU has been updated froma 1GB AMD Radeon HD6750 to a EVGA/Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 2GB. Also, had the RAM upgraded from 8 to 16GB.

Also came with a spiffy badge!

Did a FSX flight again with a Saab Gripen after seeing Eila's birthday being celebrated by the Finnish Tokyo Embassy. I couldn't find a proper freeware so I jacked a payware one off somewhere - Stays as classified information. I just don't like payware planes because they behave like freeware. Not the point though, this bird is nice! Sadly, it lacks a proper auto-pilot.

- Gatineau Airport -> Sudbury

Was going to go to Saskatoon but it was taking forever and couldn't stand the crosswinds. They were brutally bad. I was seeking out the auto-pilot yet couldn't find it.

Strangely enough, the right MFD has autopilot info, I even see the Flight Director and Autopilot toggle buttons, but nothing like heading, altitude hold, vertical climb, etc.

- Flight Sim X -

Wanted to fly the Foxhound and Foxbat but both were for Flight Sim 9. The models are nice, just "dated" for the sim. One had no cockpit and the other screwed up the resolution by splitscreening the window. Ended up flying the celebration CF-18 textured plane at Sudbury.

Was a nice quick climb to 35000 feet to spot the United Airlines, and then some unmarked one. Not sure what plane that second one was. Was nice seeing the two contrails on top of one another. Managed to line up nicely yet I landed it hard because i don't know how to land the CF-18 properly. I did managed to land it though.

More pictures!

*** SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN, CANADA ***

Sonja's hometown, and home of the airport Saskatoon/John Diefenbaker International, named after the late 13th Prime Minister of Canada, John George Diefenbaker, who passed away August 16, 1979, at Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. He was 83 years old. May his soul Rest In Peace.

On to the pictures, now, as usual, this is one of many airport that don't have scenery. For these pics I decided to roll out the L5, being a slow, stable scout plane, it definately comes in handy for taking pictures.

*** ROCKY MOUNT, NORTH CAROLINA ***

By special request from one of our most recent members, Mad_Dog7, requested that I get pictures of Rocky Mount-Wilson Regional Airport. Like above, no scenery sadly, place, there's a building placement issue, as one of the buildings apparently spawned on the taxiway.

I still got several requests from AK I need to work on, if you'd like me to visit a location, send me a PM, and I'll visit it and take pics.

Update to the Topic:

Yesterday, thanks to dad, I now have dual-monitor on my computer. With it, I decided to test X-Plane 10 with it.
