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.

AEROSOFT - SVALBARD-LONGYEAR X FSX P3D (DOWNLOAD)
David Rogers
Very sparse add-on. Even with the low price I think they could have offered a little more. There are very few objects in and around the airfield (even with scenery and autogen set to max) and most of the add-on consists of a ground texture bmp. I would have liked to have seen more of the island textures, and the coastlines sorted out. Even just a couple of miles from the airfield, there are those nasty sharp, jagged, angular coastlines of default FSX in this area. Still, I love Svalbard and I don't regret buying it because it's still better than any of the freeware versions around. I just think we could have gotten a little bit more.
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - EETN TALLINN X FSX P3D
Heigo Tomba
EETN is my home airport and in general the scenery is detailed and looks great. Most of the bugs (installer issues, GSX, ASE, disappearing gates etc) are fixed by now, but there are some serious issues. - Runway and twy lights do not work as they should (FSX with DX10 fixer - it is not big problem since DX10 preview is not supported by DRZEWIECKI anyways). The bigger problem is that the same problem is present at P3D v2.5. ... . There are no runway lights (reported by many users from Estonia) = night flying is more or less impossible. Although the product page reports the scenery to be P3Dv2 compatible. The problem has been reported to the developer after the release (in forums, e-mails etc). There is still no working fix. - Trees south of the rwy disappear (sometimes) due to exclude are misplacement. -
- Texture loading on objects is extremely slow - objects are compiled using old FS9 SDK (there is a "internal" fix for that available). - not a real issue but Photoreal area could have a way better resolution compared to other DRZEWIECKI sceneries. A better version can be downloaded http://www.lenn-
usimu.net/fsx/f-
otomaastikud). -
The saddest thing is that during the development, the DRZEWIECKI team was very cooperative. After the product was released, their attitude changed. There are "3rd party" fixes for most of the issues, lets hope that they will be fixed in a next patch (with the help from locals). For FS9 and FSX (vanilla) users, it is a must have Baltic scenery, for others - I would wait for a fix (at least for the lights) before buying it.
SYNCHRO-SOFT - PIPER PA-38 TOMAHAWK SOUNDSET FSX
Gary Williams
I spent a lot of time in the Tomahawk as it was the plane that I got my PPL in over 15 years ago. Unfortunately, the sounds here are nowhere close. They're a bit too throaty inside and out. I've bought from Synchro-Soft before but this particular sound set I won't go anywhere near.
CLS - DC10 COLLECTION HD FSX P3D
henry soule
It's a light aircraft so I didn't expect deep systems. But there are other issues: -Most importantly the VAS use is terrible, far worse than "that" 777 even. OOMs are 50/50 at payware airports. - The flight model isn't convincing. Lifts off too easily, can barrel-roll at 2,000 feet on climbout, doesn't have a particularly 'heavy' feel. . Sketchy APU startup. - Lots of unclickable switches. A TCAS which shows the location of aicraft close by, but provides no aura warning. - The VC and exterior look pretty good, but the 2D panels look like holdovers from version 1 of this aircraft. Like from FSX 2002 or so.
MYTRAFFIC 6 FSX+FSXSE+P3D
Michael Cole
No complaints here. Was an easy install on windows 8.1 by following the directions provided. Great addition to my FSX.
AEROSOFT - US CITIES X - BOSTON FSX P3D (DOWNLOAD)
Oliver Maertens
Probably the best US City by LimeSim so far. I placed it on top of the Ultra-Res city Boston from MegaSceneryEart-
h which already provides a 50 cm resolution for its photoscenery. Still the LimeSim product not only adds the custom city buildings and the autogen houses and trees, but also increases the resolution for airport areas noticeably. Aerial images for the airports were expected but LimeSim also added depictions for some coastal stretches. In short, a lot of eye-candy, no matter which approach into KBOS you are flying. Unfo-
rtunately the ground colours of the US City differ from those of the Ultra-Res MSE City (no seasonal variations for either title), but the gain in immersion outweighs this issue by far, IMO.
BLACKBOX SIMULATION - AIRBUS WIDEBODY X-TREME ‘PROLOGUE’
David Walton
This is absolutely the best simulation of the Airbus A330/A340 family that I have flown. I am truly impressed with what I see. I bought this package the day Black-box released their A340-300/600 that I had no idea they were even working on. So when I bought this A330 I found out that night I was given a free upgrade to the wide-body edition that has the A340-300 and A340-600. So the package includes the A330-200 and 300 and the A340-300 and 600. The flight dynamics are great! They do seem to be a little sensitive on the roll axis but nothing a little cfg edit can't fix ;) Combine this package with the TSS A340CFM soundpack and wow! Look out A340-300 Fans! I am very happy with this product and am looking forward to seeing their final product once they finish it. This is currently like "Early Access" it is about 85% complete but you wouldn't know it as it handles and looks as if it is finished. This is really a good product for any A330/A340 fan and is far better then Wilco's A330/A340 products. Al-
so the virtual cockpit is really well done in both visual and functionality. I would recommend this aircraft for any wide-body Airbus fan. Captain Walton © 2014
AEROSOFT - SIMCHECK AIRBUS A300B4-200 (DOWNLOAD)
David Walton
I must say WOW! I really have enjoyed this aircraft. I have been interested in the Airbus A300 series since I first flew on one with American Airlines on their A300-605R. I know this is the A300-200 version but still almost the same. From the flight dynamics to the sounds, it is a very fun and well done aircraft to fly. I also purchased the FMC upgrade and that just makes the whole simulation better. I also have the TSS A300 soundpack and that completes the whole A300 simulation. If you are looking for a good A300, look no further then the SimCheck A300 package. Just be sure to get the FMC upgrade so you will have a modern FMC unless you like using INS. Captain Walton © 2014
LIVINGFS - LAGOS X FSX P3D
Brandon Mckay
I think Livingfs Lagos X was a nice attempt. The texture quality wasnt that great. I need more african airports so I bought it. It is ok, not great at all. Just ok
SCENERYTR - ISTANBUL SABIHA GÖKCEN INTERNATIONAL FSX P3D
Leonard Tailleur
Wow! What a surprise to find this. Absolutely stunning scenery and framerate friendly. Colorful scenery which extends out a fair amount. The night textures and lighting is beautiful and stunning. I would compare the quality to Fly Tampa's sceneries. Rich textures with depth and dimension. And the Jetways work!! I've had a couple of great flights out of this location now with PMDG's 737 NGX. I'm now looking forward to more great sceneries by this developer! For P3D.
