Now available at the Flightsim Store!  If you purchased from there, you do not need to upgrade, you have the latest.  Current owners/donators get a free upgrade.  Log in to the Flightsim store (or create an account) using the same email address you used for your PayPal payment when you bought directly from me.  Go ahead and select VictoriaPlus for purchase, and you will find it available at a price of $0.00.  Dig deep and pay up!

Beta testers have been busy, and a distribution agreement arranged for the upcoming version of VictoriaPlus.  Screenshots a-coming!   I’ve been working a lot with Larry, and we’ve taken our time to put this together.  I think it’s been well worth it.

There will not be a patch, just an entirely new version, which will be sold by a well-known distributor, marked up a bit, and it will no longer be available directly from me.  If you buy now, you (and previous buyers or donators) will be automatically eligible for a free download of the new version (SP1 inclusive) at no extra cost.

A patch or new version will not be available for those who have not bought or donated in the past.

No date for release, but I will say the features have been locked down and the creation of an installer and final beta are imminent.  So we’re on final.

 

Implications of development strategy changes

Thursday, July 24th, 2014 Leave a comment

As mentioned in the last post, Vic+ will not include the Ganges update.  Here’s a summary of implications:

  1. SP1 will only be available to those who have purchased or donated in the past.
  2. I don’t plan further enhancements to Vic+ in the near future, but they may happen, and certainly bug reports will be considered.
  3. Future enhancements, like Ganges, will be separate projects.

And if you’ve been following this blog, you’ll note the number of times I mention Larry Robinson.  He has been a source of inspiration, wise advise, provided many objects and beautiful textures, including the Belleville Ferry Terminal, and allowed me to link to his Victoria-related maritime vessels, including the MV Coho, Victoria Harbour Ferry, and MV Norwegian Pearl.  And he’s working on other goodies as well.

Larry does stunning work and I’m humbled to have his support.  Thanks, Larry.
