    Dear Jon,

    very happy to see Vancouver+3 is still making progress. Personally, my most urgent desire is a performance boost in connection with ORBX PANW. ORBX PANW alone performs okay in that area, Vancouver +2 alone performs sufficiently, too. However, activating both of them I get (depending on tweaks) either terrible blurries or one-digit/fluctuating frame rates soon after taking off from CYVR heading north even in a slow-flying Cessna. Kind regards, Michael

    looks great!….just thought i’d mention…..i hope the land class will be improved with the new version….. with pnw, it’s really not vancouver, which is mostly residential dwellings with lots and lots of trees….not large apts, industrial complexes etc. as it is now when combined with pnw….i did mention it to holger…..so happy yer still at it…..always nice to have an extra something to live for :)…..cheers to you jon………..

    Thanks for the kind words, Michael. Have you fed this back in the ORBX forums?

      No, i didn’t yet, you’re right, perhaps I should. My personal (and maybe wrong) impression is FSX has to process (part of) data from both sceneries in parallel resulting in a huge burden. Anyway, I am very much looking forward to the new version. I was in Vancouver only once, but it’s a dream of a city. Kind regards, Michael

    Jon, are you going to have the downtown Chapters store windows textured in their new high quality plywood? 🙂 Kidding of course.

    Your scenery looks more and more fantastic with every preview. I really can’t wait to fly it. I just wrapped up a couple months of recurrency training at Pitt Meadows (licensed again at last, woot!) and I’m wondering what your plan for the old and new Port Mann bridges are?

    I apologize if this has been asked before, but I’m curious if you’re going to leave out the construction until the new bridge is finished and then patch it, or put the new towers and partial bridge deck in? That construction is quite an awe inspiring sight every time I lift off 26L at YPK. Certainly can’t miss it anyway, it’s all rather… massive, hehe. It’ll be nice to have the Golden Ears in there at last as well, a very useful landmark.

    Thanks again for the great work!

      It has been considered to add date-dependent smoke effects to downtown Vancouver. 😉 No plans to upgrade the Port Mann at this point, Mike.

    Awesome. Well I have a couple of nice photographs of the smoke rising out of downtown, taken from the north shore if you want them for reference. 🙂

    Thanks for answering my question Jon. Looking forward to the finished product!
