NZWR (Whangarei) Preview Screenshots

Recommended Posts

Just revisited this thread because they're so amazing.  Did you take these yourself Adam?  I agree with Nirgal above that this is probably the finest Orbx airport yet.

Jack, they Said it was in beta testing and due out by the holidays. I agree with you and I'm going to add this one to the scenery list also.

Thanks.  Well, for us Yanks, "the holidays" include Thanksgiving, which is 9 days so I was hoping.  :D  No problem, money is waiting...

Hi Folks,

 

Yep - first one should be framed....

 

Hope Alex got an all expense paid trip to visit the subject of his artwork...

:P

 

Regards,

Scott

 

No unfortunately he didn't Scott. However, if he ever did there is a bed for him at our place where he can watch the aeroplanes come and go. :)

Adam, you do our country proud.  Gosh, you have me wondering whether to move from The Naki and head up there.

 

Absolutely stunning and truly represents that area.  What you view on there is exact.  Well done Adam.

Jim.

This part of the world is completely unknown to me. You might say "come over to Down Under to fly there....." and maybe you are right!

But you can't do all and you have to make choices, at least that is my opinion.

That's why I fly only in Europe and North America and first want to complete these continents with Orbx regions.

 

But I have to admit that the pictures from the OP are beautiful and it must be a pleasure to live and fly there !

 

Regards Fred

A top class set to show off this wonderful location.

Great to see another NZ airport coming out.

Hopefully some more to follow:).

Sold, of course. NZ is still my favorite region (both)... It as everything a region - country could wish for. On top it's so FPS friendly.

 

I just can't wait for this one

The only knowledge I have from NZ is from the LotR trilogy. Wow...what a beautiful scenery.

Was the filmset location at the Northern Island, where you live (yes I looked it up) or at the Southern Island ?

BTW, folks, I can't make any replies in this part of the forum. If you have any questions, one of the devs may respond (I'm only a tester!).

I think you misspelled that, Adam Didn't you mean "Teaser" instead of "Tester"? :):)

So sorry it has taken so long to reply Fred. I forgot!

As far as I know, none of the filming for LoR was done this far north. Hobit Town was filmed in Cambridge, south of Hamilton and is still there for tourists to visit. Quite popular I believe. I think most of it was filmed in the South Island.

Quite a bit of the "Mutiny On The Bounty" was filmed off the north heads of Whangarei harbour, because it looks so much like Tahiti.

Roger is correct. There are only 2 LOR filming locations on the North Island. Tourism New Zealand has quite a good website about all of the LOR filming sets. Here is the link:

https://www.newzealand.com/my/feature/the-lord-of-the-rings-trilogy-filming-locations/

 

Some more locations for the Hobbit Trology

https://www.newzealand.com/ie/feature/the-hobbit-trilogy-filming-locations/

 

For some strange reasons (Iguess advertising/marketing laws or strategies) the very impressive  Aratiatia Rapids and Huka Huka Falls on the Waikato River near Taupo are not mentioned on these sites, although some Hobbit scenes have been filmed there
