  5. This is a inspiration of how to enhance your PAGO PAGO Experience with a bunch of free ships for FSX. These Ships are all Pilotable for FSX and some of them can also be used for AI. The fit perfect for Samoa. links to the models below!# Four Masted Barque FS200 4/FSX Four Masted Barque "Passat". FS2004/FSX/Acceleration/P3D package four masted barque Passat as pilotable boats or as AI ships. This tall ship was one of the famous German "Flying P-liners" from the Laeisz ships company. She was build by the Blohm and Voss shipyard Hamburg in 1911. First she was a pure cargo ship, faster and more efficient than steamers of that era. She carried nitrat from Chile to Germany or grain between Australia and Europe. In 1952, Passat and the similar Pamir were converted to freight carring school ships with a 1000 hp auxillary engine. Pamir sank 1957 in a heavy storm and Passat was recommisioned after that tragedy. She is since 1959 a museum ship in the harbor of Travemunde/Lubeck/Germany. This addon provides one pilotable version with all thirty-four sails set and a second version with striked sails, running with engine. Twenty-four FSX cameras let you explore the beautiful ship from high above in the masts, on the very detailed decks or from external views. Using FS2004 there are seventeen virtual panel look-around views. Additionally, there are two AI models supposed to be used with the great tool AI-carriers2. FSDS 3.5 model and photorealistic 2D panel by Erwin Welker. Doublepack Tea Clipper Cutty Sark FS2004/FSX Doublepack Tea Clipper Cutty Sark. FS2004/FSX/Acceleration Doublepack pilotable tea clipper "Cutty Sark". This famous fast tea clipper from 1870 with a length of overall 85 m carried up to 35 sails with 3000 square meters and reached a max. speed of about 17 knots. Since 1957 this beautiful ship lays in a drydock at Greenwich, England. In May 2007, during a great renovation, the wooden hull was almost destroyed by a great fire but the steel frames and all the removed parts like masts and mahogany deckhouses survived. Today the whole ship is restored. This add-on provides one version with backwind and eight stunsails and a second version with wind from the side and a different set of sails. Twenty-one FSX cameras let you explore the beautiful ship from high above in the masts, on the very detailed decks or from external views. Using FS2004 there are seventeen virtual panel look-around views. FSDS 3.5 model and photorealistic 2D panel by Erwin Welker. FSX Galleon Neptune FS2004/FSX Galleon Neptune, from the 17th century. This sailing ship is a replica for Roman Polanski's movie "Pirates" with Walter Matthau as pirate captain. On this model the oversized figurehead "Neptune" has been replaced with a scary reaper. The boat is almost complete rigged with hundreds of ropes. Fourteen cannons and two Jolly Roger flags are animated. Twenty-eight cameras let you explore the whole ship: the deck, below the decks and you can enjoy the sailors' views from high above in the masts. Using FS2004 there are seventeen virtual panel look-around views. FSDS 3.5 model made by Erwin Welker.. HMS Bounty FS2004/FSX Four Masted Barque "Passat". FS2004/FSX/Acceleration/P3D package four masted barque Passat as pilotable boats or as AI ships. This tall ship was one of the famous German "Flying P-liners" from the Laeisz ships company.

FSDS 3.5 model and photorealistic 2D panel by Erwin Welker. Three Mast Barque Alexander Von Humboldt II FS2004/FSX Three Mast Barque Alexander Von Humboldt II. This beautiful German tall ship was laid down in 2008 and was launched in 2011. It replaces the Alexander Von Humboldt I, which was laid down 1906 as lighthouse ship and was converted to a barque with green sails in 1988. The package contains pilotable and AI versions. Both with twenty-four sails or with removed sails. These models are extremely detailed and reach the limits for compiling to a MDL. Fourteen FSX cameras let you explore the beautiful ship and the virtual decks. Using FS2004 there are eighteen virtual panel lookaround views. FDE tuning by Knud Kristofferson. FSDS 3.5 model made by Erwin Welker.
  6. Four more from out on the Manu'u islands of Ofu and Tau while testing the FSX version Some info about the Manu'a island chain here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manu'a
  7. The decision to install the magnificent FTX-scenery package Pago Pago was quick decided by me -> see the difference via follow 2 shots: Default FSX scenery of NSTU at Samoa After install of the FTX-package Pago Pago Now a joy to fly all over the Island-group and land on the airports, hereby back at NSTU:
  8. The crew of a USCG C130 on floats has been given the task to inspect, at random, merchant ships around American Samoa. They left near the Pago Pago Intl airport and headed towards the Fagali'i area. It seems that there is a Maersk Line container ship in the harbour. I hope the orders are not to inspect every container... Heading for an improvized parking spot... Well, lot's of work ahead in that harbour. Let's go!
  9. 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!

  13. 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
