Talofa and welcome to the Samoan Experience! [NSTU Preview 1]

Recommended Posts

Gasp!!! I need to catch my breath and pick up my jaw! :o Some place and wonderful rendition you have made. Hard to imagine the hours, days, weeks, months that must go into a project like this. Now I wonder, is this an FTX region in itself or does it sit nested within FTX Global?

Yeah I guessed it right in March :lol: ! Tim, Ken, this preview is breathtaking, truly breathtaking.  Look at that Pago Pago bay ! Amazing.


 


Kudos to you and John V for taking the commercial risk to offer us something outside our usual sand boxes (NA, Europe), without a home market to help (Samoa, how many simmers >:D ?).  


 


The new rallying shout Pago Pago !


 


PS sorry but I cannot help, approx. ETA ?

Fresh, fresh, fresh! Ken and Tim, I just love you guys! ;)  :lol: You just made my year...for a second time! :D  :D :D  


 


Right now, I honestly am fairly speechless and gobsmacked and I just can't stop gorping at the breath-taking intro shots of this tropical holiday paradise you've created (practically every shot has something distinct or fascinating in it)...Wow, the Samoas, with luxury resort hotels, tourist and cultural/religous attractions, geological features, cable cars, shipwrecks, atolls, volcanos, lagoons, beaches, localised buildings and traffic, cruise ships etc. etc.  to boot!...I'll have to come back later to sing your praises and shout about every amazing thing I love about this scenery/experience but for starters, I have to agree with everyone above and for now leave you with an echo of Dominique's comments which I think are significant:

...These 'Experience' packages are possibly the real key to opening up other exotic, adventurous and captivating settings around the globe... :D We are right behind you fellas!


 


Pago Pago! We're going on holiday...Thank you for such a great surprise.


 


P.S. I said fairly speechless, not completely... ;)

That is so cool! I can't wait for this, as I've been flying in and out of Jackson's airport lately and to all of the surrounding airports, which has been a lot of fun. So having the entire island change to within which to fly is going to be a lot of fun as well. Thanks for the previews. :)

Great looking scenery as usual but why only a lite version of Faleolo? It is still the main Samoan airport.

Originally we had intended to just do American Samoa with an upgrade to the land class for Samoa, but I think you'll find that our lite version of faleolo is packing a few calories.

Cheers

Look really beautiful and I am sure it will sell well, but without the Western islands in photoreal it is probably a no go for me unfortunately. Too little land to explore in photoscenery and too much ocean. Just my view and again I am sure it will be a big hit with others.

Thankyou Tim & Ken,


 


Amazing work, Hawaiian shirt straw hat and flipflops are already packed for this adventure. First place I will go is the rusty shipwreck, that model is sensational. Then me an BOB will definitely visit the other POI's there's so much beautiful modelling in this I can hardly contain my excitement.

Gilligan's Island looks beautiful in the last shot, and the rusted wreck of the SS Minnow a few shots before.
 

Seriously though, I love these Pacific projects, and hope that this will just be the second of many from Orbx in the future. 

 

Great job, Tim & Ken!

Thanks for revealing your secret, and what a beauty this is! 


 


As you say, the place is not too remote - and should be useable with heavies also, it is used as ETOPS reference point for Pacific crossings.

Indeed. This is quite the beefy project you guys cranked out -- will take us a good while to digest this one.

Amazing, guys. This is just so exceedingly cool, with the all the custom buildings and details. This is going to be an instant classic.
