  1. Totally understand, Andreas! Your attention to detail in that Main Street part of the old P3D/FSX version has always been special, especially since we've been there many times. Saw "Sully" about the Hudson River water landing there in that tiny little theater. Before the movie started the theater owner walked down the isle with blankets and pillows, acting as our flight attendant before the "flight." Small town America, they own the theater and the sewer service! cheers, steve
  2. Andreas, is the Main Street in the town included as it is so beautifully done in the FSX/P3D version? thanks, steve
  3. Hi Dominique! All Twin Otters all the time when I flew Ofu and real world, I don't know how much quicker you could go. I've flown various King Airs and don't think Ofu would work unless you were extremely lightly loaded. Sim is different and much more forgiving for sure. Cyclone season was around December to March. Still had trades most of the time. The north wind days would be felt on the ramp as calm, but they would bend around Tutuila and be southwesterly where I started my day, in the harbor. Pago didn't get affected the way Ofu did. We could comfortably land 26 with a 15 knot tailwin
  4. It's always been too much to hope for a Samoa in FSX/P3D, but now we have the whole thing and it is stunning. In late 1998 my wife and I entered Pago Pago Harbor in our sailboat planning to interrupt our wandering for a couple of years so we could replenish our cruising funds. I hopped on a local bus and headed to the airport wearing my best pair of flip flops. After being ignored for a couple of hours the chief pilot saw my resume and came out to speak to me. I'd never flown a Twin Otter but had several thousand hours with the same PT-6 engines in King Airs. I wound up flying two years with
  5. Looks just like the real thing, Heiko. Thanks for all the effort at Rosario. The mansion looks super and the floatplanes will love those docks. Tight little marina like the real one-- pretty hard to manuever in there with my fat old sailboat. Orcas really is a special island. cheers, steve
  6. Sorry Steve, it doesn't cover other islands - BUT... we are working on other points of interest across Orcas. I'll post some pics from those locations soon . Did you stay at the resort We can make a coverage map as soon as the additional photo realistic areas are finalized (in the bag). Shouldn't take too long. We've stayed at Rosario on our sailboat, Heiko. The main building was built by a Seattle shipbuilder named Moran in the early 1900's. He used his shipwrights for the cabinetry inside and it is really beautiful. Moran brought in a pipe organ to entertain his guests, but couldn't p
  7. Rosario Resort looks absolutely fantastic. I can hear the pipe organ inside! Heiko, is Sucia Island just to the north going to be within the package? Great work! cheers, steve
  8. Yep, me too! I'm lucky enough to live in the PNW and to have flown for real here for many years. It just looks like it should look, it feels so real. I'm really happy with it--big step forward for FSX for me. I'm also so impressed with what has been done to so many of the airports with hangars and aprons and static planes. Just adds so much and from what I've seen, is really quite accurate. Great job guys and a great job with customer service with the few glitches with the downloads as well. cheers, steve
