First Look at Bear Gulch X Buildings

Mea culpa. I meant to post a review of EZDok Camera 1.15 this weekend, but I got caught up in a bunch of work and family stuff and had to let it slip. Part of the busy was working on Emma Field – specifically, the new Bear Gulch buildings that will be included in the package. Lest you think I’ve forgotten about you, here’s this weekend’s work…

Fanboy Friday: Phoning It In

Did you ever have a week in which you seemed busy every day, but at the end of it had nothing particular to show for it? It’s been one of those around here. All I can remember is running like my hair was on fire, swinging from project to project, and then poof… it’s Friday. I didn’t have a chance to ‘sim much at all, and didn’t get a lot of scenery work done, either. Still, I promised myself I would do my best to meet my weekly blogging deadline, so here goes… (I know, way to sell it, Womack.) Continue reading

Fanboy Friday: Stuff I Like

It’s been a hell of a week. I mean that in the original bad sense, as in I’m damn glad it’s nearly over. The details aren’t appropriate for a flightsim blog, but suffice it to say that I’m all too happy to leave the “real world” behind for a while and dig into FS instead. Here’s a grab bag of fun stuff that helped me cope during the past few days… Continue reading

Emma Field X: Olympic Paradise

While Francois is away in Romania, I promised him I’d post some shots of the Emma Field X progress, so here they are. Continue reading

Fanboy Friday: the Slick, the Smoky, and the Bizarre

Usually, I try to organize these Friday posts around a central theme. Today you get a grab-bag of random stuff that’s floating around my desk (and my brain). Prepare yourself. Continue reading

Introducing Stark’s Twin Oaks Airpark for FSX!

Okay, maybe “introducing” is a smidge of hyperbole since I’ve been yakking about this scenery for a while now. What I’ve been waiting to say for ages is finally true, however… Continue reading

Fanboy Friday Gets Real

As real as it gets… that’s the simmer’s nirvana. We all have our varying ideas on what constitutes “real”, and often it’s hard to articulate what draws us into a simulated environment to the point where we forget that we’re watching a screen. All we know is, when that rare magic strikes, it puts a grin on our faces that lasts for days. Well, I’m still grinning from an experience I had last weekend that was just the opposite of that.

Just when you thought there wasn’t going to be a Fanboy Friday…

I’m a little late today, but better that than missing altogether, I figure. Here are some sim bits and pieces that flew across my desk this week: Continue reading

Emma Field X Building Renders

It seems like I’ve been working on Emma Field X for decades, but in fact it’s been a while since I had the time to tinker with it. With Stark’s Twin Oaks nearing completion, I’ve begun turning my attention to the next big thing. Just to quell rumors that I’ve abandoned the project, here are a few renders of the new “clubhouse” and some covered aircraft parking that I built recently. These are alpha renders straight from Max, but you can get a feel for the direction I’m headed… Continue reading

Orbx Unveils Pacific Northwest Video

Cody Bergland of Jaggyroad Films just released his latest opus, a preview of Orbx’s upcoming FTX NA Blue: Pacific Northwest scenery. Not only do you get stunning views of this gorgeous part of the world (though I may be biased), but also a couple of peeks at the first two payware airports designed to fit within it – 1S2 Darrington Municipal, and 7S3 Stark’s Twin Oaks (okay, I’m definitely biased). Watch it below, sure, but this is one that’s worth downloading the high res version.
