Tongass Fjords X Glory on Video

A quick morning video for your viewing pleasure: Buzz313th (don’t ask me, that is a user name…) has made a video showing the Sitka area in the newly released Tongass X scenery by FSAddon: “Just picked up Tongass Fjords X from FSAddons this morning and took the DodoSim 206B up for a quick flight to check out the new scenery.

And in reply to the possibility that you may be getting stutters while watching the video… That is all “Video Chop” caused by stream latency, your video card having a problem with a HiRez video and the biggest factor is that you have to play the video first one time fully, then replay it again without navigating away from the YouTube page. This will allow the video to cache fully onto your hardrive and on the second pass you will watch it much smoother.

Glade you all are enjoying Tongass X and FSX… See you in three years on that sim… (-; Things may be coming around for FSX today but in three years performance will be a none issue with every aspect of FSX no matter what one throws at it.

It’s also worth pointing out that tongass X runs better on my mid range computer now than tongass FS9 did on my mid range computer then. and it looks much better.
