    Here are a few pics for you Dave:











    "Try to stay in the middle of the air. Do not go near the edges of it. The edges of the air can be recognized by the appearance of ground, buildings, sea, trees and interstellar space. It is much more difficult to fly there".

    oh my,i may have to get back into flight simming,that bridge is awesome.

    btw that second shot,just below the bridge,you can see the marina i live in,on the lower left side,there are a series of covered docks,a boat ramp and a second marina.i live on the dock closest to the public launch ramps in the marina closest to the channel..thats awesome detail.
    this is looking from the channel to the marina,but the long narrow shed 7 back is where i am,you can see the public launch ramps just beyond,with Ladds marina beyond that.you can just see the stockton sailing clubs marina to the top right.

    when looking at this pic,at the end of this 7th dock,which is F dock,you see a boat tied to the end.that is where im tied up,the boaters using the ramp pass by me on the way in and out.i have a recliner sat on my bow deck and sit n fish and watch..lol..ive made friends doing this too.

    Dave I have been very impressed with what I have seen in X-Plane 11. I added new textures from Orbx in the areas I fly in and all I can say is WOW! I love their True Earth Scenery especially low and slow. I don't get to fly much in RL but when I am up there I keep seeing X-Plane scenery. This is a fine simulator for the money. Yes, I still fly FSX once in a while in case you were gonna ask.

    I have it and it's awesome! I've used their products on FSX, glad that Orbx is releasing scenery for X Plane.

    *Patiently waits for So-Cal version to be released*

    Working my way around X-Plane and it is impressive.

    Just invested in the few ORBX packages and that really makes it pop.
    Really looking forward to the HD package(s).

    I'm off the air for several days as of now as I'm about to finalise a new build box and start transferring everything over.
