SkySim Hawk

Did the SkySim Hawk come with a Manual?

I transferred it manually (drag and drop) into Steam FSX ages ago but can't see a manual.... was there ever one in there?

Re: Exploring X-Plane a bit

Ah thank-you this makes more sense now! My PC is an i5, 8 Gig of Ram and a GeForce GTX 750. I was getting good frames (high 20s/low 30s) but it seems I had the slider for number of world objects set to minimum (thought it was a bit sparse!!). I have now set it to your recommended settings and I’m ge...

Re: Exploring X-Plane a bit

I have been playing with the X Plane demo, and it’s growing on me. After years of FSX/Horizon UK VFR and Treescape, I’m looking for something a bit more up to date. Unfortunately the JF UK VFR Scenery just released is quite frankly awful, and I would be happy to invest in X Plane and the True Earth ...

Re: Orbx Road Map for 2019

The upcoming JF product is going to be 1.2M per pixel going down to 60CM per pixel in certain areas (cities and around airports) with a a mesh of 5M. This is the same as Horizon/Playsims VFR scenery of a few years back. Is the OrbX stuff higher Res? I couldn't find anything in their specs to compare...

Re: Preview Orbx True Earth UK Central

I don't think I could ever accept "generic" scenery now after using photographic (albeit out of date). A move to X plane is tempting as the demo is growing on me, however I had an email update from Just Flight today saying that their Photographic scenery is due for release in early January...

Re: Preview Orbx True Earth UK Central

Hmmm.... it does look good. I have just downloaded the X Plane demo, I'm tempted to buy X plane and this scenery just for the low level VFR experience. Excuse my ignorance, but is it just the one OrbX pack required per region? (didn't you used to have to buy a base pack and then the regions or somet...

Re: Preview Orbx True Earth UK Central

I would love to have this but I'm sticking with FSX for now. I'm hoping the JF version here https://www.justflight.com/product/vfr-real-scenery-nexgen-3d-vol-one-southern-england-and-south-wales wont be too different, a bit like their version and Horizon/Playsims versions of a few years back. Also m...
