365 days of SL, day 320:


(Click for larger — 1920x1033 PNG, 2065 KiB)

Another day, another airfield... this one, located in southeastern Jeogeot, actually had a much higher number of planes than I expected; I'd only seen the big bomber on the map, but there were almost a dozen, all in all. Clockwise from the top left, we have a Junkers Ju 87G "Kanonenvogel" with a rather interesting camouflage pattern, a Consolidated B-24J Liberator (also tagged as "11th Bomb Group"), then a Vought F4U Corsair with folded-up wings, and a North American P-51 Mustang in Tuskegee Airmen colors (red nose and tail, yellow wing bands); then there's some WW1 planes, namely a Royal Aircraft Factory S.E.5 biplane, a partially red Fokker Dr.I triplane, a Morane-Saulnier N and another triplane, the Sopwith Triplane "N500" prototype, and all these are finally followed by a Supermarine Spitfire (featuring invasion stripes) and a Messerschmitt Bf 109 (dubbed "EG", but I don't know if that refers to any specific model). Whew!

For the screenshot itself, I decided to adopt a new perspective and show the field from above — it was the easiest way to give a good overview, and I think it's a nice and interesting perspective, too. A similar overview's already been seen on day 230, of the pony cart racetrack I visited then — I like how it looked then, so I decided to give it a try again.

Location: Almo Bay (113, 57, 22) (MelRose Field)

Apparently my eye is tuned to pick out even the tiniest of Fokker Triplanes at a single glance, because that's where it went :)

:) We were thinking of you last night, BTW — Moth remarked that you'd love that place. :)

I need to get myself on there! But I'm not sure my ancient computer will run SL and I'm a little scared to find out.

Only one way to find out!

If it's not running so well, there's always the option of fiddling with the graphics settings. It may not look quite as pretty, but you should be able to find a happy medium between visual appeal and acceptable framerates.

How old is your computer, BTW?
