Tsawwassen terminal almost done

Saturday, December 13th, 2014 3 comments

Larry’s work leaves me speechless!  Still more work to be done…also featured: Queen of Cumberland, Spirit of Vancouver Island and for old-time’s sake, the Queen of Nanaimo.  Those vessels are incomplete in these screenshots.  Note that the terminal is designed to work best with VancouverPlus, but it is not necessary.  ORBX FTX PNW is required if you don’t have VancouverPlus.

Ganges – Kanaka Wharf

Sunday, December 7th, 2014 2 comments

I restarted Ganges.  Twice.  I just was not getting the quality I wanted.  These images are very early, lots of detail to do and refinements to add, but I thought a few screenshots were in order.  These are in FSX with texture_load_max=4096 in fsx.cfg.  Will be part of SaltspringPlus.

Non-linear development – PNW Ferries and SaltspringPlus

Saturday, November 8th, 2014 3 comments

So with all the teasers, why hasn’t Larry published his PNW ferry stuff or at least part of it?  We’ve stated that it’s hooked into my work on Saltspring, so how is that progressing?

Here’s some background.  What Larry and I are doing could better be called “exploring” than development, bouncing around on whim from area to area, adding this here, improving that there.  Releasing in increments, given the already complex installation, is a recipe for chaos.  So we don’t know how long it will take because we don’t know the scope.

This is being done primarily for fun.  And in my case, for various reasons I haven’t been able to give it much attention lately, which is actually part of a greater personal exploration.  Hence the lack of updates and screenshots.

So we have no dates for ourselves, let alone anyone else!  VictoriaPlus V8 for ORBX PNW has been more popular than expected, so we appreciate the support.

More PNW Ferry Scenery

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

Saturday, October 11th, 2014 1 comment

… 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.
