  1. a visit over Nanaimo, as one of the several freeware made seabases for Orbx-PNW and at the end landing in front of the city of Nanaimo in a yellow Quest Kodiak:
  2. BC tour along Larry's freeware jewels and surroundings, hope you enjoy,
  3. Are you looking for something different? How about a highly detailed seaplane base, Nanaimo Water Aerodrome on Vancouver Island BC in fact. And how about free, as in Orbx Freeware? Economists say the value of something is what you pay for it, but I'll let you be the judge. A long-term goal has been to recreate the feel of flying from Seattle to Desolation Sound on Kenmore Air, something I did for many years. Nanaimo is a main stopping point along this route and thus is a natural for my first Orbx project. A detailed seaplane base may be a first for Orbx too. Nanaimo Water Aerodrome (IATA: ZNA, TC LID: CAC8) consists of two areas of operation, A and B. Area A, adjacent to downtown Nanaimo serves Harbour Air and Sunshine Coast Air. Area B to the north will not be included in the initial release but will be part of a service pack. Here's an overview: The initial release will include the following: What a pilot sees when approaching the Area A seaplane dock, done in considerable detail; the breakwater, the marina, the waterfront walkway, the downtown buildings one can see from the water, the park to the north. The industrial area to the south including Port of Nanaimo structures and a high-resolution static model of the ship MV Ocean Wind Two reasonably authentic AI foot ferries, one going to nearby Newcastle Island and one going to the locally famous Dinghy Dock Pub, also modeled A high resolution static Seaspan tug (Seaspan Corsair) and an AI version (Seaspan Cutlass) which follows a route to the booming grounds to the south Large log booms in appropriate places High-resolution Seaspan Barges, First Nations racing canoes, and a model of a bathtub racer. The may I say --- crazy sport of bathtub racing was born in Nanaimo Various authentic marine navigation aids A static model of a Harbour Air DCH3 adapted from an FS9 model by Premier Aircraft Design with the kind permission of Bob May Repaint by LR from a photo taken at Nanaimo last September The BC Ferries Nanaimo to Gabriola Island ferry terminal just south of the marina If my separate PNW AI ferries Community Scenery project is installed, a detailed model of the MV Bowen Queen will accurately dock at the ferry slip. (Note: the ferry system is not an Orbx project and is not supported by Orbx.) When ready, a service pack will add Area B including the SeaAir terminal, the large Departure Bay Ferry Terminal and nearby features. Please note: Orbx PNW is strictly required. CAC8 will not work without it. CAC8 is in the final phase of testing and barring unforeseen problems, should be released soon. And now what you really want to see; screenshots.
  4. Here are some shots of the Milviz Turbine Otter amphibian at CAC8. There is also a straight float version. Greg
  5. ... was passing Nanaimo in search for bridges or tunnels. But no suitable ones to be seen. Looks like something else here... Serious. Totally serious. Completed with a little CBD tour. And spotting the good runway, with proper center line. Any comments?
  6. I just had to hope these traffic controllers at Sekiu stay out of my track during accelleration... Ok, they did. But I was prepared for an emergency break during take-off, which adds another bit of realism! Crossing San Juan de Fuca strait with no border control. Maybe they recognized my livery. Nanaimo ahead... ... and below. But my next stop is Pender Harbour.

  8. Ganges to Nanaimo Enjoy and thanks for looking! P3DV3 - ASN Weather Cheers Karsten
  9. The excellent modelled ferryport at the great freeware sceney 'Nanaimo - CAC8' at PNW-British Columbia: Info: The added ferries can be installed via the Orbx 'community Scenery Add' forum: 'AI Ferry System for Southern B.C. and Puget Sound' Regards, Johnny
  10. Not only flying is a sensational act to perform at the NA-PNW area, also shipping is great to do. More precisely transport by the large ferry 'Kaleetan'. Hereby shots while at the fine made sceneries of Nainoma-CAC8 and the recent added Ganges-CAX6: Nainoma-CAC8 Ganges-CAX6 Bonus:
  11. Hadn't been here yet, so thought a quick visit was in order ASN was playing silly buggers, so a bit bland on the weather front. Nice bit of scenery though - must go back when it's stormy!
  12. After some exploration of the fantastic freewere Nanaimo ... ... I left the village ... ... and changed to some big metal again. You have to fly these birds from time to time, to keep trained. Just crossing Concrete, ... ... the Craters of the Moon, ... ... and cycling into Denver. With a series of Windows OOM alarm sounds - but still working. Lucky. Now here we are, in the middle of OpenLC area, ready for release...!
  13. First shot is departing Friday Harbor for a trip to Nanaimo, taking a close look. Absolutly stunning scenery! Thanks for viewing.
