Environments

Solent | Ship Simulator 2008 | Features | Environments Cowes, Isle of Wight

The Solent area England

The Solent is a stretch of sea separating the Isle of Wight from the mainland of Britain. It is a great place for yachting. It is sheltered by the Isle of Wight and has a very complex tidal pattern. The ports of Southampton and Portsmouth lie on its shores. Spithead, an area off Gilkicker Point near Gosport, is well known as the place where the monarch reviews the Royal Navy. This stretch of water is amongst the most expensive waters in the world to cross by ferry.

Vieux Port (Old Harbour)

Marseille France

The port of Marseille has historically been the port of the French Empire, linking the North African colonies of Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia with the French mainland. Today, the port stills plays an important role in Marseille, serving as both a commercial container port as well as a transport port for the Mediterranean sea. While the modern day port activities take place along the coast at the New Port, the Belgian Quay in the Old Port is used for the daily fish market, where the daily catch plays centre stage in Marseille’s culinary traditions.

HIFI TECH - ACTIVE SKY NEXT SP2 FSX P3D
Jose Beltrao
This software brings FSX to a completely new level of realism. Quite impressive. Definitely, this is the best FSX add-on I've bought ever! José - Portugal
FLIGHTSIMSOFTWARE - ATC AMBIENCE FSX FS2004
John Scarmalis
I purchased this product on April 23 2015. I am running Windows-7 64-bit professional. -
After downloading, I attempted to run the "installer/setu-
p" executable. Th-
e "System.Deploym-
ent" application crashes with a "SystemArgument-
Exception". I obtain the same results with any compatibility mode that I try to run under. Conta-
cted flightsimsoftwa-
re.co.uk immediately. I-
t has now been 1 week, and no response. Be-
ware of this product if running newer 64-bit versions of Windows.
SCENERY STUDIO - TREVISO X V2 + CITY - FSX P3D
SIMONE SOFFIATO
Un bello scenario finalmente per Treviso. Peccato per alcune imperfezioni ovvero il CAD che fa trasparire il photoreal sottostante (apron A e backtrack 07). Ma sicuramente saranno sistemati in una prossima patch!
SDG - CAIRO INTL AIRPORT HECAX FSX
Jens Peter Bruun-Hansen
I have upgrade my previous review, and give SDG 5 stars for the Support and Customer care made by this Company. A fine example for all other scenery developers to follow ! After being contacted by SDG i feel comfortable that SDG with the planned upgrade of Cairo will reach the goal of making HECA a joyfull experience for the sim visitors. An-
d remember, Rome was not buildt in one day ;O)
JROLLON - CRJ-200 XP
Aaron Kassel
I am a real world CRJ pilot and purchased this to help with training. Visually this aircraft is amazing, but systems wise it falls short. For instance the 14th stage bleeds are never closed in real life except once during first flight tests to check valve operation, and in this sim they are always closed. Without those valves open you would not have ice protection or reverse thrust. There is a laundry list of examples that I have that I wish they would fix. If you don't care about system simulation then this plane is fine. If you want an advanced sim then do not buy this. I give it 2 stars only because the visuals are very well done
DAZZLE COLOUR GAME - NYINGCHI MAINLING AIRPORT ZUNZ 2015.04 FSX P3D
Erhard Wallentin
This, like Lhasa is a nice scenery. Howev-
er, unlike Lhasa where charts are available from various sources, there are no charts for this airport (the 2 that are included in the package are useless). Given the mountainous terrain in the approaches, the scenery is basically useless for the IFR simmer, unless one wants to fly inot granite clouds or, of course, the weather is CAVOK. It would be really nice if the developpers would make the effort to add IFR charts to the package.
SDG - CAIRO INTL AIRPORT HECAX FSX
Jens Peter Bruun-Hansen
Long awaited, this scenery is endeed on many flightsimmers wishlist, BUT if you like high quality airport, dont buy this one. Many of the airports Buildings and complexes is nicely rendered, but the overall impression has nothing in common with the real HECA airport. Further many og the Buildings, firestations and hangars are default FSX Buildings just placed in the scenery, and all ground veichles and static planes and cars are the same. The ground layout is photoreal, but in a very low resolution and does not doo much for the quality either. SDG should have spend longer time on this scenery, adding many more Building and some models of the airport features before realease, therefore i do object to the Price of the scenery. The high Price should indicate a desent quality, but that is not what you get here, and a Pricing of 12-15 Euros would be my advice. That said, i give SDG 3 stars solely for the fastest and most effective support i have ever recieved. Only one hour after my purchase, i recieved a fixfile solving the crash issue, well done. I hope SDG will upgrade Cairo, well still need a quality scenery for the airport.
GKS - F-111E STANDARD EDITION
TS Brady
The F-111 is an iconic aircraft and GKS has done a decent job of simulating it. It looks beautiful inside and out and the fly-by views at high speed are breathtaking. However, there are one or two rather annoying things and the first is sound. I know this aircraft has a noticeable turbine whine, epecially on the ground when it taxies for example. However, in real-life flight and flybys you only hear the typical jet engine roar - watch any YouTube video. Sadly, GKS has gone overboard in simulating the turbine whine and this aircraft whines everywhere, all the time. And i'm not talking a subtle undertone, i am talking loud, like a siren whine. The whine in the cockpit is softer, but it is still annoyingly there. That whine just completely spoils this simulation for me and i actually can't stand to fly it for too long because of that. I tried to contact the company's support for a fix, but had no response - definitely one star less for that! There are also other sounds which just feel out of place such as the wing sweep, which is way too loud and the thud whent it reaches the limits is like someone slamming a door behind you - is that real? My other issue with the GKS model is that none of the radar scopes work, not the attack radar, radar warning receiver, or the terrain-followi-
ng radar, which is one of the F-111's signiture features. GKS could have given us something, even if it was fake. Then there are one or two minor things like the cockpit animation showing the doors open from the outside but closed from the inside etc. In the end, it is really the sound that spoils this simulation for me and perhaps in time i will learn how to fix that myself and enjoy it more. I was going to give it two stars, but i got it cheap and i think there are ways to overcome the annoyances and if technical support was a bit more forthcoming it may even have received four stars at a stretch.
MYTRAFFIC 6 FSX+FSXSE+P3D
Deon Mathews
Not impressed and sorry I bought it even at the discounted price. The installation is silly... why not just create installers for the different sims? The installation manual is incomplete and the installation messes with add on airports. So far I have not managed to find a solution to gate assignments and positions changed during the installation which renders add on airports useless. Hav-
e uninstalled the product and hope the developers will address customer's issues.
MYTRAFFIC 6 FSX+FSXSE+P3D
Osamah Alabdullah
This is the most confusing installation I have ever seen. Simply didn't work. I do not recommend buying MyTraffic 6 for Prepar3D. It is clear that the developers just included a workaround of their FSX base product for P3D and it just does not work. Money wasted.
