Welcome to Manu'a, American Samoa [NSTU Preview 2]

Recommended Posts

Evening all,

 

60nm east of Pago Pago International lies the visually stunningly Manu'a Island group consisting of Ofu, Olosega and Tau Islands, which in turn is the location of Ofu and Fitiuta airports, and let me assure you...both can be rather dicey to land on

 

Enjoy!

Great looking product, looking forward to the release. Any chance the Australian Ai package will be extended to cover this area?

A certain very well-known person is deeply involved in the airport coding side of the project, so you never know....... ;)

Wow, really nice!  I'm buying all the Pacific Experiences you guys can put out.  Sure hope you will do even more of the South Pacific islands.

Are we there yet? ;) That's an excitement statement, not an actual question as I know it's ready when it's ready. I'm so glad you guys started doing "selective" area packages like this, as they really appeal me.

Such an "out-of-the-way" area wouldn't normally be my cup of tea, but you may have sold me on this package just by these two airports alone!   :o


 


Stunning work guys!  8)

Bravo FTX team.  What an amazing piece of work.  Please do Bora Bora!!! That "other" X brand isn't even close to this level of  emersion.

With Orbx planning to release so many beautiful new products in the months/years ahead, for airports/regions around the world, and with Orbx clearly continuing to be innovative in establishing an even stronger gold standard among sceneries: I'm no longer even interested in payware scenery products from other vendors unless they are complementary with, and provide full compatibility with, ORBX/FTX as well as with P3D. :)

... as usual with AS, is not compatible with  P3D. 

 

News to me...

 

 

 

 

actually me installing Tahiti in P3d is the first I've flown it in a while.  I definitely see some of the FTX global textures poking their heads in alongside the AS scenery,  makes it look better than it did.  still doesn't look like Pago Pago,  but then I wouldn't expect it to.  theres a difference between "not supported" and "not compatible"  I also have all my "not supported" orbx airports installed in p3d as well,  aside from portland cityscape,  I've yet to see a problem.

 

Oh, and Tim and team:  you can count on my purchase for anything you want to throw out there with an island theme,  more papua,  fiji, vanuatu,  cook islands, Bahamas, antilles,  Azores, Canaries...  you keep em coming and I will keep buying.

oh,  sorry!  no trouble,  wasnt trying to promote anything, lol.  


 


I really like what you guys are doing with the south pacific.  this sort of "mini region" type stuff is a real asset to Global.  I hope you guys keep doing the islands obviously, but with this as a template, I think it would be great to see other orbx developers go for other exotic locales with mini packs of airports as well.  Africa comes to mind, and the caribbean,
