1) Is that the default in-game appearance, or are you using mods? Either way it looks GORGEOUS.
2) Is that a Southwest-liveried 777!?
1) as far as the appearance goes:
-i was flying over the sf bay area and using this scenery add-on pack: http://store01.prostores.com/servlet/x-planestore/Detail?no=331
-i'm using "hd mesh scenery", which is free but takes a day to download all the parts (it's global): http://www.alpilotx.net/downloads/x-plane-10-hd-scenery-mesh-v2/
-i'm also using nvidia inspector to override the in game graphics settings (and to have some sli scaling)...if you want me to make a screenshot of those settings just let me know.
-most of the planes are payware (except the atr 72-500 in the second to last shot). There are some great free planes available here http://x-plane.org/
. if you sort by "most downloaded" or "highest rating" you can find the better free planes.
2) yeah, lol. there are lots of free liveries on the x-plane.org website.
My xplane 10 folder somewhere around 150gb now...it's ridiculous. I have it on a ssd to help with the loading times, which can be brutal on a hdd.
EDIT: I should have mentioned that most of the scenery in the southwest shot is default xplane 10 (+ the "hd mesh scenery", which only slightly enhances the default scenery). the bridges are from the scenery add-on pack I linked to. In a recent update, the developers really did a good job filling in some of the cities to make them more "city-like".Edited by nasmith2000 - 3/8/14 at 9:33pm
