Oh! That's also the wind direction which is discontinuous, check this out (2 kicks, one around 70kft of altitude and the other at 50kft):

Testing a wide range of thing that has been done on the dev branch.

Above all, I love the TAEM phase in terrific places like the Alps (Innsbruck there)

:lol: No, they'd need to build a new parking for it first, for which they don't have the money ! ;)

Nice, how do you like the photoscenery? It's a completely different sim. I think for much of the shuttle flight it is as appropriate as earthview is.

I found photoscenery quite usefull for lakebed things like White Sands and Edwards.
Also, as the Shuttle is often quite high especillay during last terminal part, it is quite impressive.
I am really eager to test the USA WS3 with East Coast Abort Landing combined to photoscenery :)

Hello fellows,
I've not tested it enough, from very far it looks nice, but, maybe my eyes are getting old, it also looks very wrong to me for many things, like colors, shadows, etc... I actually don't like it, but again, I have not toyed enough to properly judge!

Busy with real life these days, but I am looking forward to flygear soon enough. By the Wayne, where are we with this fantastic Space Station of yours ;)

Happy new year guys, a bit late...
Cheers,
Chris.
