Saanen airport - Switzerland cultivation buildings for Aerofly FS2 - Freeware

Recommended Posts

This is a very nice surprise.  Saanen has been one of my favorite airports dating back many years.  I was so disappointed that the DLC gave it such minimal attention.  Maybe the Orbx Global Freeware Airports will continue to be introduced for AFS2.

 

Thanks Sylvain.

 

Regards,

Ray

Wow, double wow.  This is some serious cultivation upgrades.  I didn’t know Switzerland even had this many trees and unique buildings.  Now I understand what JV meant when he said we would like the price.

 

Excellent.  Thanks JV, thanks Sylvain.

Ray

Hello Sylvain,

 

Is there any hope of us seeing your magnificent Samedan LSZS airport as AFS2 Freeware?  Now wouldn't that be an outstanding release from a Orbx?

 

I really enjoy the long approach down the valley and checking out the golf course at the threshold.

 

Regards,

Ray

Wow, my goodness... and free too! Amazing! It’s time to reinstall Switzerland again! I never really liked it because there was hardly any ’autogen’ but this changes it all completely! I can’t wait!

Wonderful news, and thank you!

Way back in FS2004 land, it was Switzerland's freeware sceneries that hooked me.

New Zealand followed, unmatched for coverage.

Now the wheel has turned full circle, and I am hoping Aerofly will be the one to watch.

I am so very sorry, but I have waited until this morning to download these two magical sceneries but where do I find them.  I have Switzerland installed now I'm ready to add these two.

Unfortunately my health this morning is affecting me very badly, that's why I have asked for help in locating these two files

Help, please.

Hi Sylvain,

 

You're probably aware, there is some major rebuilding going on at Saanen:

There is also a new (OCC) building/hanger at the "west side" of the airfield:

Sylvain,
I have downloaded and installed your great freeware Saanen. It works very well together with the Swiss-DLC from IPACS.

Thanks for your great work and also thanks to Orbx for making it available as freeware!

 

Regards, Jakob

Hello,  I am very interested in your project off Aerofly FS2 Switzerland autogen buildings, but have you an idea of the date in which he could go out ? Thanks.

It's not.

"Unfortunately, this project is on hold for the moment. No idea if it will be delivered one day." So don't wait for it. Orbx is moving away from AFS2 and focusing on P3D and XP.

In the meanwhile, there is a growing amount of Aerofly Freeware out there if one knows to look for it. Including a good swath of Switzerland.

Where did you read this?

 

On your very own forum. ;)

 

Post from JV: "For that reason we have recently re-focused back to our core P3D platform and expanded into XP11 which has proven to be profitable in terms of units sold and the XP community embracing Orbx products."

Well....not quite.  Your statement can be taken out of context.  If you read the entire post from JV, he also says:

 

"Having said all that, I still believe in AFS2 as providing the best VR experience of any sim platform out there, and for this reason we still believe it is worth porting regions and airports to it in the long term. Just don't expect us to be so prolific about it because we cannot expend too much effort without any reward.

 

I spent a day in Germany with the IPACS team about six weeks ago and they showed me some pretty exciting stuff to come in the sim, so please don't write it off just yet!"

 

So not really moving away from it, but rather focusing on projects with more immediate ROI for right now.

A matter of interpretation, I guess. ;) Seems to me John is just being kind because he doesn't want to shut the door for AFS2. But I doubt we will be seeing much AFS2 addons from Orbx the coming year. I hope to be wrong though. (Although I am having a lot of fun right now thanks to some freeware DLC like Drassaud's cultivation for Switzerland!).

 

Still, when I look at the cultivation screenshots in the opening post I think it's a real shame the project may never be released... Why not simply release what's there already?! If releasing it through FTX Central is too complicated (or too costly) why not release it as a downloadable zip! Installing cultivation is as easy as can be: unzip a zip into the correct folder and you're done. Again, it's a shame seeing all that work going to waste.
