Pacific Islands Sim Cook Islands...Coming Soon

Recommended Posts

The fine folks over at Pac Islands Sim have some pretty sweet screenshots of their upcoming Cook Islands release on display here:

Should be ready by the end of August and will make a great place to launch a 777 from or any plane for that matter.  Raratonga International Airport has a nice 7,638ft runway to accomodate just about anything.  It will be my next scenery purchase for sure as I love island flying.

Does look nice. I wonder if it has the same issues I have with some of their earlier works, blocky shadows not disabled with their custom vegetation, makes it unusable for me.

When it's out Mike, you can bet I'll post some screenshots.  If there's an area in particular you'd like to see when the time comes just let me know.

Yep, I've got everything that PacSim have released - love 'em!  (Marshall Islands are my faves).

 

However I have just this week gone over to DX10, so I am wondering whether the PacSim sceneries will work ok.

Great little developer, have several of his airports. I use his airports as stopovers from the mainland US over to Oz or NZ.  Recommend his airports.

Or fly the T7 towards the islands and change equipment for a low and slow trip ...

 

 

If I have a T7, no need to stop, but there might be a little "tower buzzing" going on lol.  You're right Clutch & Dave, he is a great scenery guy.  Now wouldn't it be nice if he shifted his work a few thousand miles north to the island of Okinawa where a big international passenger terminal is going in at Naha.  That place is getting busier and busier and has just one single 9800ft runway with potential plans to build another one.

Mate, it would be fantastic if Graeme, or any developer would make more good airport and regional scenery for Japan. I'd fly there almost permanently if we did; I am a huge Japanofile!  (I've probably made that word up :wink:).

 

I have his Chubu, and the Fukushima addon from Simmarket but that's about it.  The Aerosim ones are really expensive, due to the Japanese exchange rate.  $49 for a single airport? :(  ... may have changed as that was the last time I looked..... my wallet almost fainted.
