And in between mucking about …

Friday, October 5th, 2007

… with FSX Acceleration, Don, Holger and I have been busy with Victoria+.  Holger just received word that excellent free hydrology data is now available for most of BC, and he’s added streams in the Vic+ coverage area.  Other stuff we’ve been doing:

  • completed road traffic vectors
  • integrated Don’s CYYJ
  • used Holger’s cool new blending textures on unlisted fields
  • many detailed revisions to the Victoria area landclass
  • thanks to Industry Canada, we received a detailed database of the nearly 10,000 radio transmitters in the area, we’ve chosen a couple of dozen on the prominent ones to include
  • added in road bridges
  • added trestle bridges to the E&N railroad
  • added new improved objects/textures to heliports
  • adjusted ferry dock objects in the Gulf Islands and San Juans
  • finished adding nearly 300 marine lights
  • received and tested the FSX version of the Asuka cruise ship from hama
  • finished testing the AI at the US floatplane bases
  • completed the addition of many static objects: marinas, warships at CFB Esquimalt, boats, and other goodies

Here’s the detail on facilities.  * denotes airfields with sloped runways
