Is this going to work in FSX as well?   Disappointment if not.  It's a shame no more ORBX Scenery will be made for FSX.  The fan base is still HUGE.  Thank you

Say what ???

When did Orbx announce there would be no more scenery for FSX.

Its the only sim I use & I have no intention of ever changing.

FSX works just great for me & I've spent too much time & money to start again.

I listened in on one of their live video feeds on FB a couple months back & they said they would be cutting support & development on FSX products.  Unless they've had a change of heart, I haven't heard anything.  I've spent a bundle on ORBX & my sim as well.  It would be a shame if they gave up on FSX

Hello,

this is for P3D v3 and v4 only, as stated.

While this product is not for FSX, it is going too far to state "no more ORBX Scenery will be made for FSX".

Beautiful rendition. No excuse now, for not flying up north on Vancouver Island. Many thanks for taster shots, and news.

Ah very good Nick - Maybe I misunderstood the conversation during the live stream.  Hope it's not true.  Thank you

:o...............how is this freeware?

 

All of these freeware seaplane bases are absolutely brilliant! The time and effort put into this, and then to release them as freeware boggles my mind!

 

What a beauty this one is too!!

 

Will the freeware “Stuff4FS Campbell River” play nice with this new Campbell River SPB scenery?

First, this is freeware so the developer is not obliged to cater to anyone's specific needs or expectations. He does it in his free time because he enjoys it and if he decides to share his scenery with other people it's totally up to him in which way or for what platform. If he himself uses Prepar3d as his simulator of choice it seems logical to develop for P3D 

Second, the Prepar3d SDK offers possibilities for modeling and texturing FSX simply doesn't have. Most developers would like to have their vision look as good as possible and P3D has options to improve the appearance of the scenery that are not available nor backwards compatible with FSX. Converting for FSX would be an additional time consuming effort and probably just a tedious, not at all fun task. A Payware developer might choose to invest the time of converting his product for as many platforms as possible to increase sales. A freeware developer has nothing to gain from this and probably wants to spend his precious free time on flying or developing a new scenery which is probably way more fun than porting old stuff. Just my two cents.

Thanks Ziggy,

 

The PR for CAE3 does not include CYBL so unless Don's version extends well beyond the airport itself there should be no problem.  There will however be a problem at Cape Mudge if you use a PNW lighthouse package that places a lighthouse there. The same problem will occur at the Merry Island lighthouse that is part of CAG8. I'll try to describe the solution in the compatibility forum when the time comes. 

 

Oh, yes, the time and effort: a year for this one.

 

Thank you Larry! The time you’ve put into these sceneries is so so very much appreciated!

ORBX PNW and Your Freeware Sceneries Together with RTMM, Vic + and the spots that Don G. (Stuff4FS) has done, make the Vancouver Island area by far the best place to fly in P3D V4!

Really can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done.

 

Cheers! :D

Larry, you are one heck of a talented developer sir! You picked a gorgeous location to surprise all of us flight simmers with this seaport! To work on a project for a year and then generously share your hard work says volumes about your character; Thank You Sir, your work is excellent and I am sure all simmers out there agree. Lastly, you could have charged for this scenery and you did not, I think Santa Claus may just be real and the community just had Christmas in April; lol!  Thank you again!

This scenery is a must have regardless of payware or freeware!  LarryR has done so many great projects for use for free (plus the Angelfish and other boats) Thank You just doesn't seem enough, but I do want to add mine to the many others! :wub::D:wub:

I never said "No More."  I said much less compared to others and this proves what I said in the other post. 

 

No indeed you didn't, but prostock did in post 4.

Hi folks,

 

I hesitate to say this;  with my previous release announcements I really can't remember any negative comments at all.  I find the ones here discouraging, especially for someone like me who does only freeware for my own reasons. If by chance  they were not aimed directly at me, perhaps they could be posted in another thread where they could be debated and would not detract from what I had hoped would be a happy announcement.

 

Larry

Yes Larry I agree wholeheartedly. 

 

The Africa LC comments don't belong here and IMHO should be removed by a moderator.

 

For those who are sticking with FSX:  Your sim works exactly as it always has.  If you choose to stick with it, just continue to enjoy the scenery that works with it but don't expect developers to downgrade their products to accommodate your choice.

Has this scenery released?

 

As a Vancouver Island resident I've sure been loving these seaplane bases!
