FTX and Vancouver+ for FSX

Sunday, March 8th, 2009

Many of you are probably familiar with the brilliant renditions of Australian scenery by ORBX, the FTX series.  With the continued help of Holger Sandmann, they are now working on North America, bit by bit, starting with the Pacific NorthWest.  Entitled FTX NA Blue, here’s the coverage area and some screenshots of Vancouver Island.  Note all of Vancouver Island will be covered, but the Northeast corner coveragee of Vancouver+ will not.

I’ll be working with the FTX team and FSAddon to adapt Vancouver+ for FTX so that existing Vancouver+ users can enjoy the new improved landscape FTX will provide, and FTX  NA Blue owners who don’t have Vancouver+ will have the opportunity of having the features of Vancouver+ in an addon product at a reasonable price.

    Just wanted to let someone who is in the development community who designs island scenery, I wish someone (who does islands), work on Pitcairn Island. It looks like an atoll in FSX, but in reality, Pitcairn is a huge extinct volcano that rises high into the sky, making it a chore for the residents to even get up to the town of Adamstown. Adamstown missing as well in FSX. Also anyone who can make ships, right where the Titanic sank, it would be great to have that ship located at that spot. Thanks!

    I have enjoyed Vancouver + for quite some time now. Recently I have begun to do some enhancement scenery similar in nature to Langley. All of this on top of Vancouver +. Some have been seaplane bases and changes to the ADCAD file were required. In my description and readme I make note of the requirement for Vancouver Plus with the link so they may purchase it.

    If I upload these little packages, am I infringing on the copyright of that AFCAD file in FSADDON?

    If so may I acquire permission?

    Thanks in advance.
