I finally started this long-planned tour last week, but was very disappointed to find that not one of my many attempted screenshots had actually been taken. I fly it in VR, but switch to the monitor for screenshots along the way - usually at least 3 for each leg and I flew the first 6 already.
So not the best start “AAR”-wise, but at least I finally got the tour kicked off and it has been really fun. Like when I did my FSX UK Farmstrip Tour back in 2012, I used a different aircraft for each leg - mostly so I could decide which one to use for most of the of the tour, but I’ve still not decided so will continue to swap about a bit and see. So far I used the Beaver, Cub, Husky, Chipmunk and Bulldog. If I had to choose one now it would be a toss-up between the Cub and Chipmunk, but I have a few strip specialists to try yet, so we’ll see.
In compensation, I’m uploading some screenshots from my test flights of the first few strips. I had hoped to use Niel Birch’s strips scenery packs (payware), but not only do they massively degrade performance in VR (due to every single item being a separate model in the sim, I’m told) but he got a few very obvious things wrong, which leads me to think there was little to no pre-release testing.
So I’m using the default scenery, which is plenty good enough for this tour.
Aliasing looks grim due to VR settings…
