    I'm just curious if people are generally happy with the FlyingIron Spitfire so far? I will say it looks pretty darn nice, and I've been itching for a nice WWII warbird.

    I bought the IndiaFoxtrotEcho T-45 and notice that it has a normal and "Lite" version listed in the liveries section. I was just curious about the difference between the two versions? On my pretty new system, there doesn't seem to be a performance difference between the two. PS: I can't seem to find the documentation for it.

    These are my sim settings for light etc. Mileage of course will vary but I now find with these settings cockpit seems not so dark anymore and the light and colour is better balanced between outside and inside. But of course P3D does light very differently so that and the shadows shift quickly depending on the sun angle and the angle your looking at. Volumetric fog is unnecessary it does it anyway with True Sky. I think Godrays OFF stops a lot of that glare and haze and the the shadows I have minimised because if you have them high you get a feathering effect happen on the shadows as they change rapidly - besides good luck seeing any real shadows from an aeroplane for real on the ground except those cast by large objects such as mountains etc.

    You can now see the change in the cloud - this is early morning in the Coral Sea area. Fair weather cumulus.

    Spokeman, If you have not already purchased your SSD, I recommend that you up it to at lease a 1 TB SSD. The reason is that although DCS, as Phantom88 said, will fit on the drive with room to spare, it won't be long before you will wish you had more drive space. Hard drives, like closets and drawers, have a way of getting filled. The cost difference between a 500Gb and 1 TB SSD is about $50 USD or $10 per 100GB. If you can afford the additional money, I think you will find it well spent down the road. Like the old adage of flying where you cannot have too much runway in front of you, altitude below you, or fuel, you cannot have too much drive space.

    Well for anybody interested few more changes but overall is good. Key is that True Sky is best viewed from ground on a shallow angle or at same level, those anomalies of looking down or vertically up are not changeable at moment. The following is a direct copy of the cloud volume config settings I am now using. You will see at the beginning of the file the explanation of the terminology and parameters. The file is in user/users/appdata/roaming/Lockheed Martin/P3DV5 and is called Volumetric Clouds.cfg. Make a copy of your original first then replace it with these - give it a go nothing to lose. //----------------------------------------------------------------------------- // // Variable Descriptions // // max_density_gm3 - Grams per cubic meter. // distribution_base_layer...

    BendyFlyer replied to a thread Change to ATC temps in Prepar3D
    Yep Celsius is the international standard temperature for all weather reporting and forecasts as is Hectopascals (or millibars same thing) for pressure. Only the US differs but not for or on the official metars or forecasts that go to WMO NOAA etc. As for the sim program you either get inches of pressure and pounds if your opt for the US standard or you get the international standard (feet for altitude, celsius for temps, hectopascals for pressure and kilograms for weight). I can't even think in farenheight measures any more, been metric too long!

    Sorry for late reply,I just checked my DCS folder and it's at 265 Gigs.I have most of the modules and all of the Maps.I believe The Maps take up the most room,So I'd say you'd be fine with 500,Not sure if it's changed but I've always heard its better to install DCS on a different drive than your OS is running on, maybe because DCS is an older engine that doesn't optimize processors and multi threading?

    You may be right. :jump: I have MSFS, P3D V5 and DCS all working at the moment. I keep waiting for something to break.

    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category CFS 2 Scenery - Library objects Description: Wire Obstacles + Craters for CFS2 by UncleTgt Recently I've been looking to depict battlefield obstacles, wire barriers & runway damage in my scenery projects. Unable to find anything suitable from the range of objects already created, I decided to have a go at creating some new objects for myself. This zip contains a range of ground obstacle objects for use as eye-candy when writing missions.

    The V1 is small, but once spotted the speed of the Spitfire is superior. This is not as simple as it looks! Cheers, Huub
