This project forms the 4th experience package created by Tim Harris and Ken Hall, following up after the highly popular South Pacific based Papua New Guinea and Samoan experience packages of AYPY, NSTU and TAP, we finally arrive in the United States of America to develop the world famous island of Santa Catalina, and the Airport in the Sky Features: Entire island of Santa Catalina HD rendition of KAVX Catalina Airport HD rendition of Pebbly Beach heliport and Wrigley Marine Science center helipad Beautiful crisp 7cm and 30cm photoreal Sharp accurate 5m terrain mesh that combines with the photoreal to show off all the terrain features perfectly Pristine autogen all lovingly hand-annotated...tree by tree covering the entire island!

  3. Back in the bush

    The Pacific Experience crew is back working on another adventure up in the highlands of Papua New Guinea, and while we were away in Samoa this striking livery took to the PNG skies P2-BBM of Tropicair, based in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea - circa 2015 (more info here http://twinotterspotter.blogspot.com.au/search?q=tropicair ) Download at my blog, link in signature, cheers!
  4. Hi all, Many thanks from us both for being a part of this latest experience, I thought I would open a small thread with a couple of user tips that might help you enjoy this package even more 1 - To really let out the color and beauty of the coral reef I highly recommend installing the freeware Flight Sim Water Configurator (FSWC) http://www.strikingsoftware.com/fswc.shtml and using Orions settings [for FSX DX9 only] 2 - The FTX AERO runway texture works on the Western Samoa airports, you'll find this tool in FTXCentral>>setting>>tools>> choose either the 1024 or 2048 runway, they look really good! [Only if desired] 3 - The medium-darkness REX4 ocean color gives the best result (in my opinion!) 4 - Make sure you have the latest ORBXlibs for your sim! 5 - Get some local AI rolling!, The freeware Australian AI pack is available here: https://www.fullterrain.com/freeware/ai [must have V4.0 + 4.1 + 4.2 installed first] then download and install the Samoan AI mini-update attached below - Huge thanks to Mr Eccleston! I'm going to set this thread read-only, If you have any problems or issues please use the Orbx Support forums http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/forum/5-orbx-support-forums/ and we'll be happy to help out Cheers!

  6. One last surprise to spring on you all, and it also forms the final part of our Samoan Experience: NSFI Fagali'i Airport Enjoy!
  7. Welcome to the Samoan Experience! Fresh off the heels of the Papua New Guinea Experience myself and ken teamed up once again to create another 'Pacific Experience' package, this time situated in the south pacific, encompassing over 3000sq km of land the Polynesian island chain of Samoa (Samoa and American Samoa) is a lush tropical paradise of volcanoes, coral reefs, white beaches, atolls and coconuts, due to the remoteness of the location aviation plays a big part with international flights coming and going from Hawaii, New Zealand and Australia, shorter regional flights from Tonga and Fiji, and plenty of local domestic flights between the main Samoan islands Main Features: American Samoa - Full HD renditions of Pago Pago International Airport, Ofu Airport and Fitiuta Airport - The islands of Tutuila, Aunu'u, Ofu, Olosega, Tau, and Rose and Swains atolls 100% completely covered in beautiful pristine 30/60cm photoreal, custom Samoan autogen vegetation and houses, hand drawn roads and traffic, loads of VFR and POI to find and explore, all topped off with a custom 10m mesh for sharp crisp mountains, valleys and volcanoes Western Samoa - Lite renditions of Faleolo International Airport, Maota Airport, Asau Airport and Fagali'i Airport - The islands of Upolu, Savai'i, Nu'utele, Nu'ulua, Namua and Fanuatapu re-created completely from scratch with hand drawn coastlines, roads, hand placed landclass and vector polygons, plus a custom 30m mesh - (while not required this part of the project was designed to work best with the FTXGlobal basepack) Coverage map: (KML attached below) Due to the mammoth size of this project I'll slowly introduce a couple of the Islands and airports a day over the next 3-4 days. First up is the main central feature: NSTU Pago Pago International airport, and the islands of Tutuila and Aunu'u Feiloa'i taeao! Tim harris and Ken Hall FTX American and Western Samoa.zip
  8. This one snuck in during the night, and was gone by morning And this one arrived just after breakfast This weekend has been a long one, but at the end we have a final build to be passed to Ed for general testing tomorrow, plenty of screenshots will follow that!
  9. Evening all, lets roll with the final part of the Samoan Experience, this time in Western Samoa! This part of the project was a late addition as we actually contemplated releasing it separately further down the track, but in the essence of creating a huge 'experience' we decided to bundle it with American Samoa, so we hope you all enjoy this little bit of extra goodness Shots are in no particular order, taken at various locations across the two main islands of Western Samoa: Upolu and Savai'i, in these screenshots you'll see NSFA Faleolo International, Maota Airport and Asau Airport which are rendered to a level we call Lite Please see http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/98094-talofa-and-welcome-to-samoa-preview-1/ http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/98121-welcome-to-manua-american-samoa-preview-2/ http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/98123-swains-island-and-rose-atoll-american-samoa-preview-3/ For the other 3 parts that make up the "Samoan Experience" Note: all shots are taken using FTXGlobal basepack https://www.fullterrain.com/product/ftxglobal and TreesHD https://www.fullterrain.com/product/ftxtreeshd , however neither are required
