There was error in the procedure for RNZ 26 approach - over NANIT 15000A, over RTT 15000A too, then too steep descent. After update is all OK. Over NANIT 15000A, over RTT 9500A. Tested, working perfectly now, speedbrake is not needed. F*** **f Navigraph.

You seriously prefer that kind of clouds over FG? To each his own I guess...

Still.the same debate and same pictures .
Just try sometimes to show here the good pictures you got from Fg ( those you put in sotm) and the bad from fsx and you do comparaisons ,it will be more impartial ;)

Speaking of clouds, if you know how to use advance weather , they are a thousands times better in Fg than on your last Fsx pictures.
I must say I admire you how you manage to stay on a sim ( Fg) where you seem to not like 90 pour-cent of it

Well , you know what I mean with your “ still better than “
You are strong to show us bad pictures of fg ( basic weathers clouds for the first one and a very specific spot with no overlays for the last one ) .
But with a bit of correct settings , you manage to have some nice things like others ( Grand Canyon for example after 5 pages)

Based on the comments and screen shots, V12 seems primarily referring to scenery itself, i.e. specifically the lack of photo scenery ?
Again, that's a very different discussion. The osgEarth stuff can also look very compelling depending on your altitude and daylight/weather settings.

Sure. One of us forced you to do some FSX shots and post them in a FG forum, at the same time pressuring you into showing bad FG screenshots and complaining how lousy in comparison FG is - you had nothing to do with any of this yourself and would have avoidedit if you could... :D

Or let me ask you like that - what do you hope to accomplish in a Flightgear-dedicated forum by praising FSX and talking down on FG? What is the reaction you generally expect?

FlightGear is certainly far from perfect, and it is facing many interesting challenges - but it's also not subject to the same pressure/dynamics that commercial/proprietary products are subject to.
In other words, depending on your preferences and focus, you can look at FlightGear as an imperfect POS or as a sandbox/playground - i.e. to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem.

I will never get over the fact that PMDG is selling a 737 at premium price that doesn't even have correctly sized interior cockpit windows.
