Hope to see Hawaii fairly soon. One of my favorite places to fly around.    NE would make it look even better.

 

Best,

Hi Chris,

I am sure it is down the pike, but can you give me any kind of timeline on Arkansas.  Some of us at KLRF could use some night IFR sim practice...grin

Thank you.  I am going to give your lights a shot.   Tuberot's Night 3D (I am sure I butchered the name) is unflyable with frame rates in the single digits in certain places, even in Moderate to Easy FPS friendly aircraft.    It looks stunning but is really only good for screen shots.    If your product does the same then it has to be something on my end.   When Texas because available I'll jump on board.   If it rocks you can have ALL my monies!

Hi Jim

NA regions production are in full swing atm

we started from the rim areas and working our way inward to provide continues coverage

if i had to estimate; we are looking at the second half of this year if all goes as planned

 

Hi Brian, glad to hear youre taking the plunge

You have no idea what stunning is yet :)

Try our demo first to make sure your SimPC can handle it properly and that you like our Night Lighting System

(demo can be found on our support page here http://www.nightenvironment.com/support.html

or though AS forums)

If you find yourself in need for more FPS; pls contact me through AS site for further assistance in setting up NE

Thanks for the info.  I'll take a spin around the night demo and see if it makes me worship the night again.   This is overlayable on Photoscenery correct?

Just purchased Spain too. Icm with MSE Spain photoscenery it looks great .

Now I have all Western-Europe NE except for France.

 

Almost 1,5 months ago you wrote that it was at the point of release and it would be very shortly after that.

Lots of people like me are waiting for France already a very long time (the first announcement is from 10 months ago... )

Now days are getting weeks and weeks are getting months and months are .....

 

An update of what to expect would be nice.

 

You have to read this in a positive way from an angerly waiting customer :Waiting:

 

Please, turn those da..n lights on in France !

not fair Gerard, you said i have till Feb 5th :lol:

 

i completely understand where you’re coming from; and i appreciate all our loyal customers who are patently waiting for NE France

 

our NE FR team is constructed from exceptionally talented group of people; they all have day jobs and so do I,

the group is very ambitious and conscious how their rendition is comes out,

now… to be fair; i have started developing my Night Lighting System with the French Community over two years ago

they know my work very well long before I became commercial; and have requested some challenging features we were unsure how to achieve technically;

obviously we have since and are now where our algorithm is working as expected

 

during this period one of our members has suffered a personal tragedy; it was appropriate to stop our work under the circumstances,

shortly after another member had to go through repetitive treatment for health issue discovered,

both have returned to full production since; and doing well

considering recent event I expect a little slowdown

 

it is a matter of tying loss ends; the major work has been done

all requirement have been meet; and much more has been added

if it wasn’t for this copycat trolling my work; I think we all know who I’m talking about

I’d be advertising and sharing what we are working on

Thanks for the explanation.

 

Health before anything!

 

I will wait and hope for a release before or at 5th februari...

Having gone thru some of those same difficult issues this past year, my thoughts and prayers are with them. I don't know if this has been asked already, but I have just completed Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, Culebra, Vieques, St. Croix and parts of the BVI in LOD17 photoreal, and am in the process of doing Peru as well. Is there any chance of you guys doing either?

Thanks.

SA is on our list of regions; its only a matter of time B)

So far, I've picked up Dubai, Denmark, Spain, Noway, Alps, Greece and British Isles. Loving them all - a fantastic job!

 

I just hope you guys get some Asian areas done as well before you flood the States like every other developer. In specific, I'm looking forward to GCC states, Jordan and India. I miss the ambience from your product in that part of the world :(

 

Edit: A point I missed posting. Currently, having many of the Night Light areas really add a lot of entries into the scenery library. Is there any chance you're working on improving that and maybe constructing an external configurator? I can only imagine how long the scenery library list will get if you install more and more of these regions.

if you only know how anal our French team are

 

I am working with my French counter part on an SAP implementation project..and I know exactly how it is..They started the project about year and half ago and we started for North America (US and Canada) 8 months and we are going live this May..but we are not sure if France is ready to go live... They are just one manufacturing firm..and here in NA we are five different business... They have over customized and over engineered everything....  and naturally they go on vacations quite often and leave work at 5PM everyday..  God bless them Ha HA!

as an engineer by trade; i strive on thinking outside the box

it’s a process that has no manual or protocol to follow

and as such it’s hard to put a time frame on such process

 

i will not interfere with their creativity

it is what makes this team very unique

 

sometimes it’s a simple task with very little variations

sometimes its little more complex and involved then it seem;

 

our team looks at this as an end user with no commercial intension in mind

only end user comfort, usability and authenticity is what they care about

 

and it’s just perfect that way; maybe not for the executives;

but for the person who will use this; and invest his hard earned money

you don’t want another mindset developing the product for you

Thank you very much Karan

 

the GCC's are bit tricky with data maturity

it wasn’t easy to get Dubai done the way it is

i released a revision for the area after its initial release

this was after i got more feedback from our customers who pointed out some flaws

to get it right; i had to almost place each light feature manually to match the real world features

 

to address your second concern we are developing a new configuration manager

http://forum.avsim.net/topic/461021-night-environment-new-configuration-manager-debut

with our new NEv2 series we will enable the manager to control many functions

as well as a single global installation folder for all regions

 

aside from the global installation option; and numerous new functions including light size, colors, intensity and much much more

we have moved away from multiple folders structure to a single one with NEv2

 

NEv2 will most likely be a free upgrade to our existing customers regions

 

and thats what will make an excellent product Chris :)

Thank you Kevin

after all everyone in the team myself included are simmers just like everyone here,

 

on the one hand it is very exciting to come up with more features and enhancements,

the flip side of it; we do feel guilty we stalled this long; all for good reasons,

but we have realized NEFR delays is an issue we need to address
