A hint of things to come in Vic+…

Here, not in final form, is the Norwegian Pearl, which Larry Robinson is creating.  This will be used by Vic+ in future versions for cruise ship traffic.

Meanwhile, I’m still working on Ganges.

  • Updated documentation
  • Removed crashbox at Ogden Point Breakwater
  • Excluded isolated antenna near Royal BC Museum

Enhancements

  • Replaced model for the Promontory
  • Added Maple Mountain antenna
  • Added new static harbour ferries and ferry docks and signage
  • Upgraded Empress model
  • Added Brotchie Ledge light model from Larry Robinson
  • Added flagpole to Beacon Hill Park
  • Improved ugly dockling at Ganges

Performance Improvements

  • Reduced seaplane AI traffic to reduce the number of avoidance manoeuvres which resulted in AI objects behaving strangely to avoid collisions
  • Deleted heli traffic
  • Removed wharves and fishing boats that had animated birds associated with them to improve performance

Coming soon!  And be sure to get Larry’s new AI Harbour Ferry!

Larry Robinson has published his AI Harbour Ferry designed to work with VictoriaPlus PNW V8.  It’s a lot of fun watching it scoot around the harbour.

Helmt has posted some great screenshots.

Go to his scenery file list and scroll down to the link under, “An AI water taxi as an addition to the addon pack above.”

A service pack will be available at some point for VicPlus PNW V8 which include, among other goodies yet to determined, the following:

  • fix for floating SCO object on Pelly Island
  • fix for aircraft crash over Ogden Point breakwater
  • a number of changes to the AI, which will reduce avoidance maneuvers that cause some oddities; these will also improve performance
  • improved representations for a number of buildings, including the Promontory and Hotel Grand Pacific2014-5-26_7-22-34-766
  • thanks to Larry, addition of static and AI harbour ferries to the harbour area, as well as addition of the main docking area near  Ship Point2014-5-29_13-35-0-686
  • addition of Maple Mountain antenna2014-5-29_13-53-43-660
  • documentation updates

Some of these will require objects from Larry’s library so it will be necessary to download it again.
