  1. https://youtu.be/1ByaLAN6lrA This is visually realistic enough, no? Enjoy the views, chill out music, and thank you for watching!
  2. Highly realistic SweetFX preset and realistic audio, all ingame! Overlay info graphics, Pilot'sEye style. Stay tuned for more videos like this, more complex, full flights, multiple cameras, timelapses and relaxing chill out music. https://youtu.be/2yJo5Br-leY Thanks for viewing!
  3. My own preset for more bright days and darker nights. Also my custom darker sky textures to match brighter visuals.
  4. I'm waiting for FTX Global and OpenLC EU + Vector.
  5. It's amazing how Prepar3D v3 looks good in vanilla state! Even ground textures look pretty good and convincing. I've just added SweetFX to correct hue a bit, nothing else. FPS was ~70 while taking the screens, almost max settings. V3 is defo bonanza! Enjoy the view! Thanks for stopping by!
  6. I have GTX 960 2gb and v3 is running amazing on max details all the time above 50fps, smooth as butter, no stutters! So my question is, to all of you that have, or want to upgrade, why the card with more vram?
  7. Reboot is more detailed, more functions and stuff I guess, but I don't like the UI, looks complicated. Also, you can use only SOP2 with the button edition. I stopped using voice edition because I'm limited when I can use the microphone, and on top of all some phrases I must repeat two or three times, a bit annoying. I found myself almost yelling BEFORE TAKEOFF CHECKLIST for example. The voicesets are absolutely the most important feature in FS2CREW for me, 80% of immersion. When the voices are bad it can kill the immersion completely. Female from the EU voice set just sounds like she is dictating phrases, I don't know.
  8. Thanks for the links. Anyway, I watched few fs2crew Reboot videos on YT, and I don't like it at all. I don't like the new FMC UI, it's complicated. Also, new voices are AWFUL, especially EU female, she sounds unnatural and robotic. First version of NGX fs2crew has very good voice sets, natural speaking, easy menus and UI.
  9. Shadows are amazing in P3D!
  10. That aircraft is known for causing performance issues on some systems, search for the help at Aerosoft support forums. On my PC I get better frames with NGX which is more complex. Definitely the coding of that Airbus is not the best, but maybe I'm wrong since FMW system is taking the most of CPU cycles.
  11. Stage 1: "hmmmm maybe I can try flight simulation, looks interesting!" After buying FSX Gold, and few hours in default C172 controlled with keyboard, he founds that main strength of FSX is an endless possibilities, the whole world is in your hand. No use of flaps, GPS, mouse as yoke, not to mention flight plans, VORs... ... Stage 2: "C172 is boring, let me see all other planes in FSX." Flew Maule, Cub, Baron... but all planes seems boring because he doesn't know for navigation, ATC, procedures, approaches, plates. "Wow, Boeing 737, 747, Airbus!!! Must try them!" He took B737, placed it on a runway, hit F4 and pulled up at 180kts IAS, just to realist at 5000ft AGL that he probably wanted to retract the gears like in the real world. Finding for a shortcut in the menus, exited, pressed G, and realized that his Boeing is already going 300kts... In complete panic he pressed F1 with a thought "damn, this is hard, now I can see why real world pilots have good pay checks". Stage 3: Few months has passed and our fellow simmer has discovered the world of flaps, default flight plans via GPS gauge, and finally FsPassengers. HE also wanted to change some of the engine sounds, so he decided to buy TSS 737 soundpack and FsPassengers. He thought "well I didn't planned to spend this money, I doubt I spent it wisely". Stage 4: After few months of pretty scary flights with FsPassengers, following flight path of a DIRECT flight plan, all via heading know on MCP, few crashes because of guessing vREF, is it 120, 160 or 180 , and using rudder commands on keyboard, he decided to buy a good controller (joystick or saitek yoke). Stage 4 in short: Stage 5: After discovering the new level of immersion with the flight controller, he somehow founds himself on AVSIM, strangled in the world of flight simmers that use phrases he never heard of, like VOR, ILS, SID, STAR, Derated, Plate, Airway, V1, VR, V2, Acceleration Height, Localiser, Approach Mode, FMC... And he also started using default ATC, and found that vectored approaches are addictive and fun, and that is very cool that ATC will guide you to ILS feather, it's waaaay easier to find the runway that way with hand flying on approach. Also he is starting to lurk flight sim shops for various addons, ORBX, Pro Flight Emulator, few sound packs, few more complex airplanes. Hmmm a Saitek Pro Flight yoke? Bought! Stage 6: the era of tutorials, youtube videos, questions on AVSIM started! After few days of digging what above mentioned phrases are, his reaction was exactly: Bought PMDG NGX with a pleasure, to move from default planes to something more complex, but the amount of information in this stage is kililng him. At least he learned about ILS approaches, rotate & landing speed, VOR-to-VOR flight plans, and using the autopilot in GPS mode, all with following ATC. In that stage, our fellow flight simmer founds himself in the flight simming paradise, without or that fancy mumbo jumbo that people on AVSIM use. He was in stage 6 mode for a quite long, it was so addictive and yet not complicated. At the end of Stage 6, he decided to try some checklist addons to add more immersion. Stage 7: After couple of years stuck in Stage 6, he entered next stage, also called "Breakthrough stage", the toughest stage in his flight simming life. All that aircraft systems, procedures, autopilot modes, flight plans, FMC, aahhhhhhh! Watched tutorials, videos, countless hours spent on AVSIM, and yet he founds himself going back to Stage 6 quite often. Months have passed, he slowly started to get new things, and form the view what is it like to be a real world pilot. On every NGX practice flight, he discovered new procedure, autopilot mode, or term. Suddenly he founds himself finishing the full flight with SIDs and STARs, full flight plans, full checklists, procedures, programmed FMC. First thought was "OMG, this is so amazing, I will never go back to default planes, never!". Months has passed and he was amazed by this stage, and with every new information. Stage 8: this is the stage in which OP is now. The stage called flight simming heaven. Good performance in FSX, never below 30fps, AI traffic, NGX, FS2CREW, PFPX, FSGRW. From time to time the world of flight simming will hit him with some new stuff and terms, but he will not run to learn about them, because he's sure that he is now a advanced simmer. He must learn to use the plates, but he simply don't care because he don't need them, PFE and PFPX did all the job, with or without SIDs and STARs. Already thinking to switch to Prepar3D, but he will wait for v3.0. Stage 9: is there stage 9? Is it online flying for VA, or that feeling when you go to pro flight simulator and show the instructor that you know everything?! P.S. I didn't mentioned that between Stage 2 and Stage 8 our flight simmer will be stuck also in the world of tweaking FSX, CTD's, freezes...
  12. News Update: I'm in LOVE with the NGX! Learned the procedures, AP modes. Using FS2CREW, and the immersion is mesmerizing. The more I fly Boeing, the more I realize how Airbus feels robotic and scripted. I don't know is is Aerosoft's fault, but the freedom in the NGX is awesome.
  13. FSX DX10 + SweetFX + Gabriel Teles Lens Flare Takeoff, just before gear up call: One hour later, vectored approach to LSZH: 200, continue! Thanks for looking!
  14. I have FsCaptain and I stopped using it and got back to FsPassengers because it is a way more simpler to start the flight. In FsC you must edit aircraft characteristics, and I guarantee you it will take few flight to tune some values up to the point where the ETA calculation will be acceptable, and also you must insert the flight plan and the wind at every waypoint if you want FsCaptain to give you realistic ETA, and that too is a pain in the ass. If you miss ETA by few minutes you will get negative points, so it can be frustrating.
  15. And what is even more awesome - how I fly now with an Aerosoft Airbus + FS2CREW voice, and how I flew few years ago. Difference is massive! Never thought that programming FMC is fun. Never thought that I will be able to finish a flight with FS2CREW voice edition! And you know what? Immersion and experience is pretty amazing! I felt pretty much like a captain, sharing a cockpit with a human. When FS2CREW Airbus edition was released, I thought "why in the world I need this when Aribus have checklist and FO?". Even with that default featue Aerosoft Airbus is amazing and very immersive, but with FS2CREW with voice control is another dimension. You can even talk to FA to bring you coffee or lunch! I can talk now abou SIDs nad STARs, flight plans, but I will leave that for later.
