    GB North

    Much as I hate to say it - it appears, to this new owner at least, the texture quality of the previous two issues is missing from 'North'. Not so much in the Highland areas but along the coastlines, where the other two showed impressive detail, we have less than default quality. It's all too technical for me but I know total file size is growing and perhaps some limiting economies have been tried. I did call it to their attention.
  2. A thing that's been bothering me as I play with the 'Reshade me' and 'FSEnhancer' plugins is how, as soon as you add cloud coverage from a clear condition, what appears to be a built in feature of XP - ground shadows from clouds - kicks in and everthing goes dull again. Wonder if there's a way around this?

    Question about XP11 fixed wing/helo throttle.

    FWIW discovered the problem - self inflicted. If you assign the 'collective' function to another button/slider/what have you, the throttle axis will not switch from helicopter to fixed wing.

    Question about XP11 fixed wing/helo throttle.

    Tried what you suggested but no joy.
  5. Here's a question. The other day I flew a helo in the sim and the throttle worked correctly in the 'pull' mode rather than the normal push. Next flight, fixed wing, throttle remains in the pull mode and nothing I've tried can change it - supposedly an automatic switch but it didn't. The 'axis reverse' changes the direction of the blue line but nothing in the sim. All checks are normal so what am I doing wrong? This is XP11.25 - Saitek X52.

    Orbx GBsouth and GBcentral

    Both are extensive, download wise but their utility FTXCentral does the heavy lifting. These are the best sceneries Orbx has produced and the third part, GB north, is coming shortly. Derwent Water, part of the Lake District in Cumbria, UK.

    Pay/free combo C152

    An 'attaboy' for NHadrian's Carenado C152 mod. The payware is, of course, the 152 but the mod is free and a wonderful piece of work. The plane flies extremely well and that's the important thing - lots of other immersion things too.

    Introduce yourself! What got you using X-Plane?

    Tried XP on and off over the years as I muddled along with '02, '04 and X. Nothing inspired a change until 11 came along. Always thought that P3D was like flogging a dead horse so took the plunge. I'm still amazed at how inventive XP owners are in their furtherance of the sim - to the point where, without their contributions this product would not have reached its current position in the sim world.
