    Chris Bell and Creative Design Studios Team bringing you the latest Technology and Innovation in Flight Simulations, Stargazer is our latest project as we push further enhancing night flight ambiance, looking at the native sim sky looks very dull and boring, once we climb over the clouds overcast at night; we lose the spectacular ground views, Looking at almost bear naked dark sky is not realistic as the sky at night have their own vivid spectacular views; we are spared the added value of night flying without a proper star map at night, this is where Stargazer shows its strength and value as we spread millions of real stars positioned in the night sky based on real world data and time calculations, in the near future we will publish stars positions that are calculated daily for the best looking sky you will ever get to see in real life or in simulation, The Control Panel Stargazer CPanel is a simple point and shoot style, select your desired magnitude hit apply and off you go no special configuration or setting are required, compatible with all third party addon including the complete ORBX line, The astronomical magnitude scale. The scale below is given as an instructive tool, to give a general idea of how the magnitude scale works. The scale below is intended to be roughly visual; the human eye's (dark-adapted) detection efficiency peaks around 495 nanometers, while the formal photoelectric V peak (a filtered band intended to be close to visual) is around 550 nm; CCDs tend to peak around 700 nm. The examples are given for integer values are not "exact", in that celestial objects are often measured to a precision or 0.1 or 0.01 magnitude; for example, Sirius shines at V = -1.47 (Yale Bright Star Catalogue), and the planet Venus varies in brightness generally from magnitude -4.5 to -3.7. Note that a comet of magnitude 5 will not be as easy to see as a star of magnitude 5, because that same amount of brightness that is concentrated in a point for the star is spread out over a region of the sky for a diffuse comet with a relatively-large coma. Magnitude Needed to see an object of this brightness* Examples -26 the sun -13 full moon -6 crescent moon -4 naked eye: easy even from large cities planet Venus -2 naked eye planet Jupiter -1 naked eye brightest star, Sirius; totally- eclipsed moon; C/1995 O1 (Hale-Bopp) near peak 0 naked eye: difficult but visible in summer evening star large cities Vega; C/1996 B2 (Hyakutake) at peak +1 naked eye: brilliant as seen from planet Saturn dark, rural areas +2 naked eye: difficult but visible from stars of Big Dipper small cities and suburbs; diffuse Halley's comet in objects such as comets may require 1986 near peak small binoculars from urban areas 3 naked eye: rural, suburban, small city faintest naked-eye binoculars: bright, urban areas stars visible from many smaller cities/inner suburbs; 4 naked eye: (outer) suburbs faintest naked-eye binoculars: cities (stars), suburban stars visible from areas (diffuse objects such as comets) many smaller cities/(outer) suburbs 5 generally binocular objects from urban moons of Jupiter and suburban areas; faintest naked-eye stars visible from "dark" rural areas located some 40 miles (60 km) from major cities 6 binocular objects from suburban areas; planet Uranus faintest naked-eye stars visible from "dark" rural areas located some 100 miles (150 km) from major cities 7 binoculars; faintest naked-eye stars brightest minor visible from "dark" rural areas planet (asteroid) located some 140 miles (200 km) from and about 1-2 major cities and some 30 miles (50 km) comets each year from nearest town of population 5000 or so 8 binocular objects; from urban areas, such planet Neptune objects may only be visible with small telescopes 10 from dark sky, objects visible with at any given 20x80 binoculars; from brighter sites, time, there are a larger telescope is needed usually a couple of comets this bright 11 general limiting visual brightness# of comets with a 15-cm-aperture reflector 12 general limiting visual brightness# of at any given time, comets with a 20-cm-aperture reflector there are usually a half dozen comets this bright 13 general limiting visual brightness# of comets with a 25-cm-aperture reflector 14 general limiting visual brightness# of Pluto at its brightest stars with a 20-cm-aperture reflector 15 general limiting visual brightness# of comets with a 50-cm-aperture reflector 19 general limiting brightness# of comets with a CCD and 50-cm-aperture reflector 21 general limiting photographic brightness of stars with a 40-cm-aperture reflector 22 general limiting brightness# of comets with a CCD and 150-cm-aperture reflector * naked-eye viewing assumes 20-20 vision (corrected or uncorrected) # from a dark, rural site; "visual" as compared to "photographic" or "CCD-detected"; "reflector" means "reflecting telescope" Stargazer is now available for immediate download through our shop shop https://shop.chrisbelldesigns.com Enjoy, Chris

    Happy Easter everyone we have just published new installers for Black marble Base and Black Marble "ORBX Vector Patch" for all supported platforms P3Dv4,3,2/FSXSE/FSX, these can be downloaded by logging in to your shop account > Manage Purchases or click here (revision in shop still indicates v1.00 but the download should give you a v1.01 for Base installer and ORBX Vector Patch installer) to mention few we have updates all textures and models for improved visuals and increased core performance, we enhanced Black Marble native compatibility with sim as well as enhanced third party compatibility and integration with all latest ORBX titles shown below, the new patch process is far more simpler and faster to implement with very minimal user interaction required, all together our new Base installer and ORBX Patch the result are very impressive performance increase with enhanced stability and a complete new visuals for our customers, we are looking forward to hearing your feedback's Black Marble Base - Updated to v1.01 on 04/01/2018 Black Marble Vector - v1.00 No new Updates Black Marble Vector ORBX Vector Patch - Updated to v1.01 on 04/01/2018 Black Marble 3DBridges - v1.00 No new Updates Black Marble 3DBridges ORBX Vector Patch - v1.00 No new Updates Black Marble Traffic Pack - Not Published Black Marble Traffic Pack ORBX Vector Patch - Not Published v1.01 patch detailed installation process Enjoy Chris Bell and Creative Design Studio Team, supported ORBX products

    At daytime it looks very realistic. Performance wise it is very heavy on the system. People try with cloud shadows off , water off and many objects turned of in FTX C. What is your experience Mike ?

    Michael , you’re still young. Pilots never grow old. I have TU NL on my system. Will check today how well it works with NE. Hopefully it isn’t imbedded but I fear that it is. Then we can only use NE Benelux without the NL Splashmap

    Hi Michael, Now we can see what you really see. Looking great ! Btw : did you see True Eart Netherlands ? If you have purchased it could you make a vid with NE Netherlands ? regards, Gerard

    there is also a new v1.01 patch for our orbx users!!! it should be listed right under your Black Marble vector installer as v1.00 but it is a new installer as well!

    Hi Everyone, I know it's not flight sim, but thought I share with you guys. This is my numbers matching 1970 Dodge Challenger RT/SE. Took her to the Florida Mopar Nationals and she took home Gold! I'm second from the left, the one on Oxygen.

    If you don't have FTX Vector then no worries at all. I suggest therefore that BM Base and BM Vector will suit you just fine. BM vector will give you worldwide road coverage which will complement your worldwide FTX Global. BM vector also gives you 10 different road classes whereas you only really have 4 road classes in the default BM Base. You don't mention if you have any other Orbx addons like Regions, PNW etc because that would also require the use of the BM/Orbx Compatibility patch. If you only have FTX Global which are just replacement ground textures then the Patch would not be required. Be aware that FTX Global also includes some night lighting which is affected by the Vegetation autogen setting in P3D. It is recommended to have that setting at Sparse.

    Hi Chris, thanks for your reply. I already tried reinstalling, but that did not resolve the problem. So I will contact Steam support. Just out of curiosity: what *is* the normal way to start the config tool?
