Introducing CAX6 Ganges Water Aerodrome


Recommended Posts

Jon would be certainly happy to see this. I just re-installed Van+ and Vic+ into my new system, now looking forward to add this jewel. The Greater Vancouver region is getting better and better.

 

Thanks and kind regards, Michael

How do we get this?  I just now had a chance to turn on the PC, start FTX v3 and I don't see it listed.  Is it still a work in progress?

 

Thanks.

Thanks so much guys.  One of the buildings uses some of the texture Jon was working on, so there is a little bit of Jon in the project beyond his spirit.  Jon is responsible for this in another way too; he was the one who convinced me to post some of my stuff.  I had been doing for myself, just for fun. I still do it just for the pleasure of creating something.

Jack,  barring any showstoppers that I can't solve,  Ganges should be available through OrbxDirect soon.  As for exactly when, your guess is as good as mine. For those who have not installed freeware with OrbxDirect,  think of it as payware where the price is 0.00 AUD.  Add it your account and then install with FTXC3. It's almost  too easy. Just kidding JV!

Thank you Larry, you're very kind to share this with us and I really appreciate it.  I will look every day on my FTX3 and when I see it I'll get it. And it is a lot easier than FTX2 in my opinion.

This is some really wonderful work here, I was looking through the screens and it was like I was a tourist there.  My wife loved it, we just sorta walked around end enjoyed being in the moment.  She now wants to visit it in real life someday.  It's a charming little village.

Just incredible Larry.  Fantastic effort and thank you in advance.  I'm sure Jon would have loved it too.  Your eye for detail and ability to recreate it in the sim is astonishing.  I have to agree with Bermuda's comment above.  This scenery is much too special to just fly over.  I will be spending quite a bit of time walking around and admiring the details up close also.

 

Cheers,

I'm speechless.  Your work is impeccable.  Absolutely beautiful.  The fact that you offer it as as a tribute to Jon Patch is touching. Jon is definitely smiling down on how realistic your projects look.  It's difficult to tell the difference from the simulator pictures and the real world pictures, until you see the people in the real world pictures. The fact that you are offering the scenery for free is greatly appreciated.  I would pay cash for them.  Thank you for making it available to us!

 

As a side note, I took a flight in FSX last night from Victoria to Vancouver in a float plane.  I love making these type flights when I can do them.  Your work is making me continue to use FSX, because I don't have a good float plane in P3D.  I cannot wait for this product to be released.

Maybe some real life shots taken from near the end of the seaplane dock  would help.

First of all a very big thank you to the developers and for making it freeware. My old FS days are back! Rediscovered some old waterplanes and got them working in P3D v3.4. Even the good old Beaver, the A2A Cub, the Carenado C185, the C172 and the U206g. Last one is my favorite, because the others exept the Beaver are underpowered. Also the Ozx Goose is nice, but difficult to maneuver in the water. For the Beaver you need to change the panel cab file, found how to this on the Aerosoft forum. There are quite a few waterbases in the area I didn't know. Found them with Google Earth and kmz file, they can be recognized by the green colored symbol. 

Thanks for the pictures too, almost the same...

First of all a huge thank you again for this, Larry and I am sure that Jon would have approved

I had to smile when I read this, Larry. I remember quite well that a few years ago Jon had posted on his private blog (that I had subscribed to after having bought his sceneries), that he has a guy working on some stellar sceneries. But he had yet to convince this man to upload this scenery somewhere. I had then asked him, whether he would be willing to share the name of this person, so that we could approach him very carefully in order to convince him too. But Jon answered that he was not allowed to share that person's name with anyone. He would continue to work with the guy and hopefully one day he would have convinced him to share his work. That person was of course you, Larry :D

 

Jon was a wonderful man and I guess that we all here are extremely greatful that you share your fine work with us.

Thanks so much for the further comments guys. It should not be too long now; the right stars just need to come into alignment. Thanks for the story Bernd. I really do miss Jon. He was good at things I am not, and to some extent vise versa.
