Hi, with the latest ORBX sale I took the opportunity to test some new regions. I thought they weren't really noticeable in high altitude flying, boy was I wrong!

 

I did two flights in succession with the CRJ (multiple legs is what I mostly do now  :jump22: ).

 

First leg is and dawn departure from Victoria CYYJ to Seatle KSEA in a Delta CRJ7 operated by SkyWest, as DL4849.

After coming in hot, I used the last taxiway out of the runway

Now, after almost 1 1/2 hour, we are ready for departure to Sacramento KSMF, this time as DL4857. Really looking forward for the sights this morning!

With live rafic, I can see we are in the rush hour for the morning departures

Prepare yourselves for the volcano spam. Mt Rainier first.

This volcano is owed a lot by Boeing Marketing department. And look at those PNW valleys!

Descending through Northern California, to the left there is Beale AFB, just 27nm out of SMF. Home for the Blackbirds throughout their entire USAF operation.

Sorry, no TD shot but I can show you this

All in all, I'm very impressed about these two regions. I would have paid full price for them no doubt.

The CRJ is coming along very nicely. I'm slowy getting to know it's little secrets and gotchas, very fun to fly!

Great set! I'm having some sporadic CTD issues with this CRJ.

Really nice Santiago. 

 

I've been impressed with your night lighting on your last few posts, the distance that the lit areas spread from the focus point, right to the horizon in built up areas. What settings do you use, is this is an autogen setting or something else?

Stunning set Santiago, I just love ORBX scenery, but the budget has only extended as far as the NZ (N&S Island) Scotland and Norway so far.

Marvellous set, Santiago. I really like the PNW shots, the Cascades are one of my favourite areas to fly. The night shots are also terrific.

I am tempted by OrbX NoCal, but I plumped for Norway in the hope that the Majestic Q400 will make it into P3Dv4 some time soon. Not that the sale has finished...

Thank you very much guys!

It's Vector with everything enabled and FTX Lights. I'm not using anything in the cfg and graphics are mostly to the max.

Looks fantastic. The CRJ is tempting, but I'm afraid it would take a back seat to my 717, so may have to wait a bit. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks, i thought it might have been that Black Marble. I haven't tweaked around with my settings much yet  so will push things to the right a bit.
