Recent chatter about Vancouver+

Friday, January 26th, 2007

Here’s some recent comments about Vancouver+ from the non-sim world:

And  to clear up some of the minor ambiguities in those posts:

  • Vancouver+ Part 1 (City and landscape) V1.1 for Flight Simulator 9 (aka FS2004, A Century of Flight) is available from Simflight.  Product support is available here.
  • Vancouver+ Part 1 for Flight Simulator X is under development, no announced release date.  That’s what the screenshots you see more recently here are from.
  • Vancouver+ Part 2 (Vancouver Int’l airport, CYVR) for FSX is under development, no announced release date.  No FS9 version is planned.
  • Products are not all “by Jon Patch”.  Although I’m the lead on Part 1, there are many other contributors, particularly Holger Sandmann.  For Part 2, Bill Womack is the lead.

    Thanks for the notes. Any timeline as to the release of the FSX version, or a beta that folks can play with?

    You are welcome, and thanks for the interest.

    Nope, no timeline. Since the development environment is so different, there is still much to learn. And it’s not our intention to be early out of the gate; we want to ensure we’re really taking advantage of FSX.

    And we also may wait for SP1 (service pack 1) of FSX to see what gets fixed up, particularly performance-wise. There is no timeline on that from MS, either.
