GA Fly-ins / GA Flight for 19.11.2019 Homestead GA to Key West Intl.
« Last post by Mike C (G-XTWM) on Tue, 12 Nov 2019, 22:49:03 »
VFR GA Flight for 19.11.2019
Homestead Gen Aviation  to Key West Intl.


Whale Search  (Flight plan courtesy of Alf Denham)

Professor Blubber is the Director of the Florida Marine Conservancy (FMC) and this morning you fly him and his large team in  commuter aircraft to Key West where he is hosting an International Conference on Marine Life. On arrival at KEYW taxi to terminal where Prof. Blubber learns there is an unusually large pod of Orca whales 30nm NE of Key West. He requests you change aircraft to amphibians and fly to Sugar Loaf Shores and collect  an FMC scientist and equipment, then on to Summerland Key Cove to pick up a Professional camera man and natural history enthuiasts, then head for Whale Pod WHP below 1000 ft to find the whales and make contact with the FMC research vessel. Land beside the vessel (Pause makes a good brake!) and transfer people and equipment and collect latest data then head back to Key West where he can open the Conference at midday.

***Users of FSX, FSX Steam and Prepar3D can install my Scenery File WhalePod.zip to display the research vessel and the whales. Place the unzipped folder WhalePod in your Addon Scenery folder, and then activate as usual in the scenery library. Users on other platforms may have to use their imagination.

Assemble on the left hand apron. Tower will open at 7:30 pm when your sim should be set for 0800hrs.

Too early to answer any of those questions I suspect however I'm not sure some of them are that important. Who cares if Orbx isn't compatible if what you have to start with is as good or better!

I agree with the sentiment behind joinFS/LNM etc. For us as a group this has limited appeal unless we can integrate it in to our normal activities, especially the multi-player aspects. FS2020 is meant to support SimConnect (which to differing degrees is in FSX and P3D) so these may work out of the box or may require very little work to add support. I'm optimistic.

If you watch the videos in the original post, especially the World one, you'll get some indication of how world streaming will work.

For me it's got enough potential I'm not spending more money of P3D or X-Plane addons. My old addons are not a waste of money as I can still fly my old programs if I want to. Time will tell what planes we have in the new game and whether 3rd party plane developers get the urge to support it (paid or freeware) but MS will not be able to provide all planes unlike the world's photo scenery.
