  1. Hello everyone, Following last week's announcement, Finni Hansen's NZGS Gisborne Airport is now available for purchase on OrbxDirect. NZGS is situated on the outskirts of Gisborne, on the East Coast of the North Island in New Zealand and is one of the few airports in the world that has a railway line, the Palmerston North-Gisborne Line, crossing the main runway (see video below). Gisborne Airport airport is situated just next to the ocean in Poverty Bay, with spectacular views of the Young Nick’s Head mountain as you depart over open waters. It consists of a single terminal and gate, an asphalt runway 1310 meters long and several grass runways. Air New Zealand and Sunair both operate out of NZGS, however the airport is used for a combination of medical flights, SAR, and GA-Traffic - it gets quite busy as you can imagine! Key Features: Accurate representation of Gisborne airport and cityscape Large coverage area including the airport, Young Nick's Head mountain, and the city of Gisborne Ground specular mapping Baked ambient occlusion and night lighting Dynamic lighting for P3DV4 Orbx PeopleFlow Animated WA165 Vintage Steam train NZGS Gisborne Airport is now available to purchase from OrbxDirect for AUD $32.95 (approx. USD $24.35 / €21 / £18.50) For the best experience, the NZ North Island region should be used in conjunction with NZGS - click here to add this to your Orbx collection.
  2. Hi There simmer, this is my video about AI Traffic Australia and New Zealand by Orbx! Enjoy! Regards, Almedin
  3. So, I haven't had much time to fly lately, and even less time to take screenshots and post them. That said, I managed a short flight out of Whangarei and flew in a meandering northerly direction, landing at the Bay of Islands airfield in Kerikeri. Once landed, I noticed an odd advertisement for a place far far away from Kerikeri...pretty cool! It is in the last screenshot: #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 Not sure who has found that before, but it is the first time I have seen it Love the little hidden surprises like this in Orbx scenery! Cheers!

  5. Kia ora, welcome to NZWR Whangarei Airport, Orbx's first North Island airport; located in the northernmost city in New Zealand in the Northland region of the North Island. Whangarei has been on my radar for several years now, and with the assistance of one of our forums members (tuisong) for on-site photography this beautiful NZ destination has been made possible. This project includes the airport itself along with a large amount of photoreal coverage of the bay and valley that the city of Whangarei itself is in. There are some additional locations included in this package, including 3 helipads and many important points of interest for navigation and visiting. Whangarei is the northernmost city in New Zealand, and the regional capital of the Northland region. Situated in a river valley at the back end of its large harbor, Whangarei is an important industrial area producing cement, refining oil, and shipping industrial goods via its ports. The city is host to Northland Emergency Services Trust (NEST) which operates helicopter rescue operations in surrounding Northland. The NEST Helicopter Base north of the city, NZJR Whangarei Hospital Helipad, and McLeod Bay Rescue Helipad have all been modeled in addition to the airport. Whangarei Airport is situated on the Onerahi peninsula, southeast of the city center. While limited by the geography of the area, it has two runways, a sealed asphalt runway of 3,599ft and a grass runway of 1,558ft. The airport is served by regular flights to Auckland operated by Air New Zealand Link on Dash 8 Q300 aircraft. A smaller air taxi service, Sunair, operates flights to Claris, Hamilton, Tauranga, and Rotorua using Piper PA-23 Aztec's and Cessna 172's. The airport has been previously served by Beechcraft 1900's and ATR 72's. This project has just entered beta, so all going well it should be available this holiday season. Compatibility Available for FSX, FSX:SE, and Prepar3D v1, 2, 3, and 4 Requires FTX NZ New Zealand North Island (NZNI) Coverage 60sq mi/155sq km of photoreal coverage at 10cm/30cm/60cm/1m Airports and heliports NZWR Whangarei Airport - HD airport NZJR Whangarei Hospital Heliport - helipad atop the city hospital, west of the city center NEST Helicopter Base - rescue helicopter base north of the city center McLeod Bay Helipad - new helipad at the entrance of Whangarei Harbor, built for rescue operations Features Detailed rendition of NZWR Whangarei Airport Three additional helicopter pads around the city and surrounds Color blended and fully autogen annotated photoreal coverage of Whangarei airport, city, and harbor Advanced rendering techniques for realistic materials at the airport, including precipitation effects on the ground surfaces, specular shine, and bump mapping Dynamic lighting in Prepar3D v4, provided by Jon Murchison APX designed for AI Traffic Australia and New Zealand package, designed by Graham Eccleston POI's including Marsden Point refinery, Portland cement plant, Te Matau bridge, and detailed city center ObjectFlow, PeopleFlow2, TextureFlow, and StaticFlow included Airport modeled with on-site photography provided by Roger Alchin. And without further ado, screenshots. Many of these shots were produced for these previews by our very own Adam Banks. His New Zealand screenshots are finely tuned to reflect the real locations and as such I wanted to have his input by providing preview images that look the closest to setups that flight sim users from New Zealand might have for their daily flying.

  6. 15 videos in and I'm ALMOST done. Just looking for some water runways to finish with. Any ideas?
  7. Light piston powered twins are my favourite aircraft type to fly in the sim, and I've recently added the Flysimware C402C to my virtual hanger. Below is a test flight from Dunedin to Greymouth, with the HD blue and white livery matching the wintry Southern Alpine landscape below. The photoreal scenery in shots 6 and 7 are part of the REAL NZ subscription package, and blend perfectly with the FTX region! No shots from the landing sorry- it was an eyes outside job!
  8. Queenstown today, at sunrise. Was going to a barbecue ... LOL! PS. I'll leave a piece of meat and a mug of beer for those who show up.
  9. The first one is near NZQN and the other four are around NZNV
  10. Two from New Zealand south island
  11. Trying out the new NZSI scenery and had some great light for the screenshots. Couple of shots here, the classic Spitfire over Macenzie country, NZ. smooth landings.
