G'day Everyone, I'm very pleased to unveil the first screenshots of my latest project, Felts Field Spokane. Located just over the Cascades from many of your favourite PNW airports , this is the first payware airport for the Northern Rocky Mountains region. As well as modelling the regional GA hub of Felts Field in all it's glory, I have also included a very large chunk of the city of Spokane for you to explore too. FELTS FIELD & SPOKANE Historical Felts Field Airport (KSFF) is the GA airport servicing the city of Spokane, WA. Nestled adjacent the river in the scenic Spokane Valley, Felts is the GA hub for the Inland Empire (Inland NorthWest). With three runways (including a water runway), Felts is suitable for all types of simmers including jet flyers. Rich in history, the airport is home to a variety of well-known aviation companies and businesses, including Pemberton & Sons (owners of the oldest flying Boeing, a 1928 Model 40C), Rocket Aviation (who modify the famous Beechcraft Duke into the Turbine Duke), Northwest Airways, Moody's Aviation and many others. Felts also features impressive early 20th-century architecture, including it's famous Art Deco terminal building and old 116th Squadron USAF hanger. Spokane is the second largest in Washington, as well as being the commercial and cultural hub of the Inland Empire. Originally prospering as a stop on the Northern Pacific Railroad, Spokane grew to be one of the most important rail centres in the western US; the existing railyards are an important visual cue whilst flying the circuit at Felts. The downtown area experienced significant growth following the hosting of the '74 World Fair, and many landmarks built at this time are visible in our scenery. As well as the downtown and railyard districts, many other areas of Spokane are faithfully recreated, including the northern approaches and Spokane River valley. FEATURES - Ultra-detailed & low-impact rendition of Felts Field (KSFF) - Advanced rendering & ambient occlusion applied to all textures - Huge coverage area including the majority of the City of Spokane at 60 & 30cm resolutons - Over 40 custom landmarks and points of interest, including detailed representation of downtown Spokane - Over 50 extrusion bridges & overpasses within the coverage area, including 5 high-detailed custom bridges - Spokane railyards faithfully recreated - Super high-definition 5m mesh coverage for extended Spokane Valley - Clock tower at Felts Field tells the time! - Custom high detailed StaticFlow2 and ground vehicles, including custom aircraft unique to Felts - Designed to blend seamlessly with FTX Northern Rocky Mountains (first payware airport for this region) - Full suite of ObjectFlow, PeopleFlow2, Snowflow, TextureFlow and CreatureFlow COVERAGE Stay tuned, more screenshots and features coming up this week! Cheers, Jarrad
G'day Everyone, Thank you all for the wonderful feedback on my first batch of Felts Field screenshots; I'm delighted to showcase a second (and likely last from me) round of shots. This second batch focuses a little more on some of the details and points of interest outside of the airport perimeter - of note are the downtown and western approaches hotspots. You will also see the various seasonal variations you have come to expect from an ORBX product; Spokane is no different with a vibrant change depending on the time of year. Lastly, there has been some discussion about the art deco clock featured at the airport - I thought I would show some comparison shots from various times of the day. Development is progressing solidly on Felts Field; we have just passed the package into the trusted hands of the beta testing team. Cheers! Jarrad
