Island scenery ?

Recommended Posts

Is there any island scenery that is as good as or close to Orbx Pago Pago? I tried he demo of Honolulu Int. from FSDT and found it was FS9 quality. I guess I am spoiled by Pago Pago.

Almost all the airports on the Hawaiian islands are included in the Orbx NA Free pack and look pretty good.  Unfortunately Honolulu is not one of them. 

 

Yeah you would think someone would have done Hawaii.  Kind of like how LatinVFR did Key West and re-did all the other islands and parts of Key West including the NAS.

I have a number in the Caribbean...FSDT, FlyTampa, Taxi2Gate.  Also, south of Spain there's Ibiza, Mallorca, Menorca.  There's the new Reunion Island, Pago Pago, Pacsim's Taiwan.  Take a look at them and see what you think.  I do have FSDT Honolulu and like it but it doesn't cover the islands like most of these others do...I wish it would...at least the taller hotels in the city.

I have sampled the Hawaii offerings and uninstalled most of them - I'm waiting for one of the major scenery developers to come along and "nail" this region.  In my opinion, this area would be highly regarded by the FS community.

Hi Vincent

 

Did they solve the autogen problem I seem to remember they had at release, some kind of issue with OrbX Global ?

Actually, it worked perfectly for me several months. I was able to play with the autogen description of Orbx and the one needed by FlightScene (and reset at every launch via the animan.exe tools set in exe.xml or dll.xml, can't remember). It work*ed* but do not work anymore since several weeks. animan.exe (flightscene tool) set an autogen description that wipe out the Orbx one. I didn't have much time to investigate and prefer flying with Orbx Global correctly set that in French Polynesia. Had to analysis and investigate !

Has anyone here tried the Honolulu Int. Aiport by Fsdreamteam? Simmarket has a good price on all three, main airport and several near islands airports.

I have Honolulu.  It's good but dated.

TNCM has been the gold standard for island flying...very much a quality add-on...St. Barts is a hoot if you have a good short field airplane.  I have the Grenadines as well but I just fly over them so far...my GA fleet is crap.  I do have a thing for islands, though, and I wish IDS would fix the Bahamas.  Ah, sigh.

FlyTampa St Maarten (make sure it's the full package, that also comes with St Barts and Saba) is as Gregg said, first class.  You can take heavies or light aircraft into TNCM (very light only into Barts and Saba!).

 

I have FT Grenadines too - it's beautiful but strictly small GA only (small fields).  Just as immersive and beautiful as St Maarten though, and about 7 airfields to explore.

Has anyone tried Orbx Sata Catalina Island? If so, is there a good payware airport close by to fly to it from?

Right now theres John Wayne nearby.  Orbx is working on Santa Barbara (yes!).  I hear rumours of a KBUR but haven't seen anything solid yet.  There's also an Orbx airport a little further north up in the hills...not much one of their better ones, to me.  Further away, there's Palm Springs.

Great, I can get John Wayne and land on the taxi ways. 

 

Are you talking about the Latinvfr version of John Wayne that is on sale now?

Agua Dulce L70. It is a small airfield but nicely crafted with the Vasquez Rock National Park nearby (Blazzing Saddles !) on photoimagery. A challenging approach in a hilly country. Mostly for light GA but I've flown the L-39 in and out of it. Not overly spectacular but I like it.

 

My favorite in Socal is still KTNP 29Palms by the eponym company.Very moody small airport in the desert.

The eponym company?

 

The company with the same name as the product / airport    = 29Palms  :smile:

Orbx Hawaii would be great to have this year.

In combination with BlueSky photoreal, it's absolutely spectacular. One of my favorites.

 

That Tahiti scenery is nice but the water mask looks lazy. Not up to par with the rest of the energy dedicated to that project.

I am having the no Autogen problem with the FlyTampa - Grenadines = No vegetation and no autogen. Anyone else experiencing this???

I am using Prepar3D v3.4.22.19868 on a Windows 10 x 64 machine and installed the latest Grenadines installer provided by Simmarket (FlyTampa_Grenadines_FSX_P3D_12.exe).

Tried:
Grenadines AutogenEditor and it did not fixed the issue.
Used the backup autogen file and added the extra code from the "Manual Default.XML Autogen" with no avail. http://www.flytampa.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=9477

Contacted support (25/03/17) with no solution till the present day... :dry:


Grenadines does show up in FlyTampa Configurator along with my other FlyTampa sceneries.
