Here’s the balance of Larry’s current work.  He’s also going to include a nifty pilotable Zodiac so you can zip around the terminals.  All shots in Prepar3d.

Stealing Larry’s Thunder

… well some of it.  Here are some shots at Chemainus ferry terminal of Larry Robinson‘s not yet released PNW Ferry System, featuring the MV Tenaka and Pacific Explorer tug.  Note in the third shot the default ferry for comparison.  This freeware work (still not finalized, for example there no effects in the below), which includes all terminals on Saltspring, will nicely complement SaltspringPlus.

More than one third of the folks who purchased VictoriaPlus V8 PNW directly from my website between May and August have not taken advantage of the free upgrade available to SP1 at FSS.  Log in using the same email address you used for your Paypal purchase and select VictoriaPlus for purchase, you’ll find the price is $0.00.

An old scam still floats about

Looking for interesting twitter feeds to follow I found dozens of “flight simulator” feeds that all led to “Pro Flight Simulator.”  This apparently is a classic case of “buyer beware” and surfaced around 2010.  This site describes an interesting product for $49 with additional options that can total $140.  But according to source #1, source #2, source #3 it is simply an old version of the free open source Flight Gear program repackaged with no change in functionality. So you can choose to pay $49 for outdated technology or $0 for something better.

A more recent spin on the scam is called VirtualPilot3D.

Many say it’s not illegal, but it’s certainly slimy.  Certainly the VirtualPilot3D website is said to show copyrighted screenshots from other programs, and that is illegal.

So like anything else, do your research before you buy to make sure you’re getting value.

Working on Saltspring

I’ve been working on Ganges again, redoing it in much more detail.  It’ll be a while before there will be screenshots.  I also have images for CMBH (Mt. Belcher): that’ll be a nifty destination.  In respect of Don Arney’s privacy the model will be fictitious.
