  1. Very impressive screenshots, Simeon! Chapeau! So here is mine - still loving FSX plus photoreal sceneries: (To enlarge the screenshot click into the picture, please) Location: Neufbrisach, Alsace, France Sim: FSX (SP1 + SP2) plus photoreal sceneries Scenery: Alsace VFR for FSX (France VFR) https://www.francevfr.com/product_vfralsx2.php A/C: Airbus A340 Shaders: none - what you see is what you get PhotoShop or others: none - what you see is what you get The great advantage of FSX plus photoreal sceneries: the photoreal landscape textures are stored on the PC drive (HDD / SSD), so you can see all the details immediately, no matter how fast is your internet connection. In my opinion still the best flightsimulator - if you want to see authentic, detailed photoreal landscapes with a detailed mesh on an affordable PC. And choose between tons of photoreal sceneries and authentic aircrafts. From freeware to expensive ultra-realistic models. By the way: I don't have any O..x sceneries and I don't have stutterings. Because there is no O..x Central reading the PC drives and phoning home. If you want to see more screenshots from FSX plus photoreal sceneries: https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/164647-junes-sreenshot-contest-throwback-sim-shots/&do=findComment&comment=1047101 In that posting I gave some links to my former screenshot threads. Always safe landings, keep flightsimming and stay sane Torsten
  2. No contest in August 2021? Oh I see, I've just found it here. Not many participants so far ๐Ÿ˜‰ As this is a last minute entry (to be correct: last day entry ๐Ÿ™‚), I just picked one of my favorite shots from FSX plus photoreal scenery: Laguna de Santiago, Canary Islands (Click to enlarge the picture, please) Because I had already posted this pic in an AS screenshot contest last year, please let me stay out of race. So do not take this picture into account in the ranking, please. Always safe landings, keep flightsimming and stay sane Torsten
  3. + 1 So Edward, it's your turn now! AS-contest without screenshot from @edetroit is like strawberry cake without whipped cream ๐Ÿ™‚ And to be honest: I'm still missing @AA777-200ER , @Tokitaumelie , @CaptKornDog , @Apogee , . . . , . . . , . . .
  4. Hello Aharon, very well combined! ๐Ÿ™‚ But: It's not a trick - it's FSX ! A nice little gimmick in this smart aircraft addon ๐Ÿ™‚ Of course I'm looking a little bit different in real life. Due to the fact that I'm not wearing sunglasses while simming ๐Ÿ˜‰ And due to the fact that I don't have a headset like this. But with a small webcam it should theoretically be possible to replay my smiling face while enjoying the fascinating photoreal landscapes ๐Ÿ™‚ I bet this will be a feature in FS2030. With FSX you can enjoy it right now. If you don't mind looking a little bit like me while wearing headset and sunglasses ๐Ÿ˜‰ Stay happy and keep flightsimming! Torsten
  5. So here is finally my screenshot for the contest: Sim: FSX (SP1 + SP2) Pilot: me, mirroring in the windshield ๐Ÿ˜‰ A/C: Embraer Phenom 100 (Just Flight) https://www.justflight.com/product/embraer-phenom-100-download Scenery: Alsace VFR for FSX (France VFR) https://www.francevfr.com/product_vfralsx2.php Shaders: none PhotoShop or others: none - what you see is what you get Good luck to everybody Torsten
  6. Hey Simeon, GREAT THEME! Phantastic idea, congratulations! ๐Ÿ‘ And very impressive screenshots, Simeon! Again a great pleasure to enjoy and admire them Hard to believe that they are from "former" simulation platforms ๐Ÿ˜‰ So I don't want to be unpolite, and I apologize, but in my eyes FSX is not a "former" flight simulator. A lot of people are still using it ๐Ÿ™‚ Me inclusive ๐Ÿ™‚ I can't reach your talent, but may I give some links to my former screenshot threads, to show the other guys why I'm still loving FSX plus photoreal sceneries? (To be honest: I don't need glamorous reflections on the fuselage and I prefer to enjoy spectacular sunsets and sunrises and dramatical clouds in real life, not in the sim. But I'm keen on crisp and detailed photoreal ground textures with an exact and therefore realistic height mesh to discover and enjoy fascinating landscapes ๐Ÿ™‚) Approaching Heliport Sรถlden, ร–tz Valley, Austria https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/155325-approaching-heliport-sรถlden-รถtz-valley-austria/ Potpourri with photoreal landscapes https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/154905-fsx-11-pics-photoreal-my-julys-screenshots-potpourri-with-photoreal-landscapes-part-1/ Amazing clouds in FSX https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/154354-fsx-18-pics-my-mays-junes-screenshots-amazing-clouds-in-fsx/ Water and Waves in FSX https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/152255-my-aprils-screenshots-water-and-waves/ Paris, the city of love and romance https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/151696-fsx-12-pics-march-2020-paris-the-city-of-love-and-romance/ A dozen of my best screenshots in 2019 https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/150726-fsx-12-pics-a-dozen-of-my-best-screenshots-in-2019/ Maule Orion over photoreal island https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/150441-fsx-3-pics-my-januarys-screenshots-maule-orion-over-photoreal-island/ Iconic A340 over photoreal Austria https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/148577-fsx-11-pics-my-decembers-screenshots-iconic-a340-over-photoreal-austria/ In the East of Dallas, Texas (photoreal) https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/147857-fsx-5-pics-more-novembers-screenies-in-the-east-of-dallas-texas/ Austria photoreal https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/147359-fsx-5-pics-my-octobers-screenshot-austria-photoreal-bonus/ 10 years VFR Germany - Happy Birthday! https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/146654-10-years-vfr-germany-happy-birthday/ Low and slow over Southern California (photoreal) https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/146341-fsx-4-pics-piper-cub-low-and-slow-over-southern-california/ Skiing in summer (photoreal) https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/145359-3-pics-with-fsx-skiing-in-summer/ Rhรดne Valley nearby Lyon (photoreal) https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/145027-some-pics-with-fsx-rhรดne-valley-nearby-lyon/ Always safe landings Torsten

  9. Love is in the Air - Yes, I'm still loving FSX plus photoreal sceneries โค๏ธ What could be more romantic than a heart-shaped pond in a beautiful, idyllic landscape? FSX plus photoreal scenery In my opinion still the best flightsimulator - if you want to see authentic, detailed photoreal landscapes with a detailed mesh on an affordable PC.

  11. HAPPY NEW YEAR, Simeon! And HAPPY NEW YEAR altogether! That's fine! I totally agree ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ Flightsimming is perfect to impress ladies! It shows that you don't spend your money for AvGas but keep the money in the house. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Always safe landings Torsten
  12. @kroswynd Cool pics, Simeon! I hope the guy on the third pic will get a warm cap for X-mas ๐Ÿ˜‰ Don't know if it's allowed to post a picture a second time in this screenshot competition? Here we can see the boss himself refreshing his PPL ๐Ÿ˜‰ Amazing Graz, Austria FSX (what else?) plus Austria Professional HD East Good luck to everybody! Torsten
  13. Hello altogether, in June I had posted a table comparing the hardware recommendations for FSX, Aerofly FS2, XP11, P3Dv4 and P3dv5. Now I have added the MSFS: By the way: I prefer to spend my money in aircraft addons and scenery addons (photoreal sceneries), not in extremely expensive hardware. It's the addons which make the quality and immersion in your Flight Simulator. Always safe landings Torsten
  14. Until now (Nov 30th) much too few participants and therefor much too few screenshots in my opinion. Poor Simeon, how do you feel with this resonance? So may I add another tropical island? Because I am out of the race anyway. Voilร : French Polynesia (FSX, of course!) Bon vols Torsten
