    Hello guys, this is a map that I've created for myself, but I found it quite cool so decided to share. It is basically a copy of the official Orbx product map, but I made several changes: - added standalone freeware airports - added airports from the 2018 roadmap - color coded the airports. This is to easier decide which ones are suitable for different kind of airplanes. The coding is as follows: BROWN - grass strips ORANGE - small paved GA airfields, LIGHT GREEN - bigger GA / small regional airports suitable for Dash 8 or a bizjet DARK GREEN - airports suitable for 737 BLUE - regional and international airports, with enough runway and parking place for at least 757 I did not use any fixed criteria for this classification, rather a combination of runway length, apron size, real world schedules and common sense. So there can be some errors or you may not agree with the classification. But I hope you'll find it useful https://drive.google.com/open?id=1-fqf4PZR7FHf0M7L3M_d2t5o2AuFgO22&usp=sharing

    Hi all, Just a quick update on where we are with the updates to the Australian airports for Australia v2. We appreciate that many are keen to get them up and running. We we are planing to release these updates on the new Orbx Central app. Orbx Central is nearing completion and will go into a public beta next week sometime. The updates to the airports are still currently under testing which is being done in tandem with Orbx Central testing. Further information will be provided next weekend.

    I made it to CAC8 Nanaimo and then across the Strait of Georgia to CAG8 Pender Harbour. Now on to Desolation Sound and YRC Refuge Cove Seaplane Base. Why go there? It’s what many think of as the most spectacular area for boating in the Pacific Northwest. The scenery is equally impressive from the air. For a good portion of my life I spent my vacations there on the family boat. I did not have that much time off so I would fly up and back on Kenmore Air. Most all the scenery I have done lately is an attempt to recreate that wonderful experience and Desolation Sound was what it was all about. A little from the User Guide: Refuge Cove is the main source of supply in Desolation Sound, located near the northwest end of the Strait of Georgia in British Columbia. It serves as a convenient pick up and drop off location for those coming to or leaving from boats via seaplane in what many regard as the ultimate destination for cruising in the Pacific Northwest. Refuge Cove remains the quintessential ‘Up Coast’ marina; the type that has mostly disappeared from the PNW and it oozes character. There are a number of boaters who spend one to two months in this area year after year and some have been doing it for 30 years or more. Refuge Cove is run as a co-op by the members of the small community of permanent residents. There is no lodging available. In general, people fly there to join boats cruising in the area. Here is a link to a .kmz Google Earth overlay file to help you get oriented. If you give permission, this link should open Google Earth and place a map over the scenery area. Google Earth map overlay of Desolation Sound (Lower the opacity of the map to suit your needs.) In addition to Refuge Cove, a number of other locations are modeled including those that serve as pick up and drop off locations for Kenmore Air (Bliss Landing, Mink Island, Prideaux Haven) as well as Squirrel Cove and remote Forbes Bay at the foot of Mt. Denman. There are some Easter eggs too. Cortez Bay, another Kenmore Air stop will be included in a service pack. YRC is now being tested and will be released (you have heard this before) when it’s ready. I should mention that Orbx YRC Refuge Cove Seaplane Base will replace a quite old and not that good version of Refuge Cove that had been posted on my blog. It’s been removed, and if you happen to have it you must remove it too because it’s not compatible. Of course what you really want to see are the screenshots so here they are; some of Refuge Cove, Squirrel Cove, Mink Island and two from Forbes Bay in that order. Incidentally, the lines off the sterns of a few boats at Mink Island as shown in the screenshots are not mistakes. At many locations in Desolation Sound boats are typically ‘sprung to shore’ to prevent the anchor from pulling loose and not having time to reset if the wind changes direction.

    Good day dear Aerofly FS2 fans, I am pleased to announce my first developments for Aerofly FS2. Yes, this announce concerns two products for the same country. They will be distributed as two separate products however, so you can choose to install either one or both of them. Icing on the cake, they are freeware. You will need to have the swiss DLC from IPACS installed for these products to work correctly. Please visit www.aerofly.com for more information about this DLC. Enjoy these first screenshots. LSGK Saanen airport Switzerland cultivation buildings (autogen buildings). Note: this product does not overwrite IPACS default tree placement. I only added a full country building coverage plus over one hundred thousand of individual trees, mainly in towns and some villages.

    In the terminal interiors I modelled (Meigs Field and Homer) it took roughly two days to do each, and both were contained on a single texture sheet with polygon counts similar to a single static aircraft. Essentially, minimal time and effort and resource usage. Less than modelling a unique aircraft anyway. After release, neither interior attracted much attention and most of the notes were on how to disable it. After KCGX I intentionally excluded the terminal interior from Bar Harbor and never saw any mentions of this. To me, the market has spoken pretty clearly and instead of terminal interiors I put more effort into surroundings and the apron area. Although for some reason parking lots get a lot of attention and I spend much more time there than I did a few years ago.

    I did something this week I've wanted to since I was a little kid. I got to actually fly a helicopter. I got to take off, land, hover, and fly it. Words can't describe. Here's a mix of Orbx and real.
