If you have previously purchased from iBlueyonder, check your email for a discount.

Kudos to Bill for the generous discount.

Just loaded it up in the default F-22 for quick look.  If you use Orbyx products, be sure to check the FlighBeam Forums KPDX FAQ first to be sure you make any necessary changes to ensure the scenery loads correctly. (My mistake... see correction a couple posts below.)

A beautiful piece of work!

Edit: The shopping center (IKEA, Best Buy, etc.) and hotels along the 28L/R short final flight path are very nicely done as well as all the area overpasses.

According to the FAQ, there are no issues whatsoever.  It is said to meld seamlessly with Orbx products, including Portland Cityscape and the nearby KVUO.

It looks good, but I don't see PBR as implemented on their feature list? :wacko:

I stand corrected, Scott.  I should have said that you may have elevation issues if you have a conflicting PDX elevation BGL in //Scenery/World/Scenery.

The HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) 406 Not Acceptable client error response code indicates that the server cannot produce a response.

Maybe the server is too busy..

Thanks for the response. May have been the case as I was able to get in and am now downloading.

All the best.....

I've been looking forward to PDX ever since the FS9 payware. And I have to agree, from the screenshots, it doesn't look on the level of what I expect from Flightbeam. Hope it's just the screenshots or something

Purchased and installed.

I had to use the troubleshooter to disable 4 Orbx Pacific NW BGL files (just ran the FlightBeam mgmt tool) - before I did this the Sode Jetway was about 10ft too high (see pic)
