Paramotors tomorrow/Sunday?

Postby Robert » Sat Apr 09, 2016 9:02 pm

Hey guys, I'll be online tomorrow morning here starting about 3-4 pm GMT (9-10 AM MDT) if anyone is interested.

I've got some new areas picked out... :D

Hope to see you then, or if other times work better, let us know...

Hey guys, Axel created a couple of launch points in the Yosemite Village valley for us. The scenery pack is on the TS server. Makes it so much nicer to fly the paramotor out of the valley. It's a long slog from either of the nearby airports otherwise and the paramotor only holds 4 gallons of fuel. :D

Also, I'm not sure where we will be flying - maybe Hawaii and maybe back at Yosemite, but Axel and I are meeting up again in an hour from this post. Come on in if you feel like it. We've been using either oculus or vr as the password. Session will have FlyInside in the name... I call them FlyInside VR if I'm hosting.

The paramotor is really amazing for the Yosemite valley, though. I'll be posting videos later. I'm running the Orbx Northern CA scenery and there are waterfalls, birds, half dome looks amazing, and there are even some tricky wind shears and such where you can even fly backwards on the crest of half dome. Very cool!

Oh Yosemite, great idea and somewhere I've visited in real life but not in FSX!

Looks like its covered by Bluesky if anyone is looking for some freeware scenery textures http://www.blueskyscenery.com/LAS_North3West5.html

It's also got some nice freeware from Orbx (https://fullterrain.com/freeware). Axel spotted that it's freeware. I had installed it a while back and forgot it was free.

Not sure the comparison, but the Orbx version has all the buildings, some have smoke rising up from chimneys, waterfalls, birds, etc.

We also have the Devil's Tower scenery from there. I haven't flown there yet but Axel says it looks good!
