As promised last week, this blog is getting a bit of a facelift and an upgrade. I’m pleased to announce that the new iBlueYonder.com is open for business. From now on, please direct your browsers to http://iblueyonder.com/ for blog updates, info on my scenery products, my freeware downloads, and more. If you subscribe to this blog, be sure and read the introductory post on the new site for info on updating your subscription link.
Hey, look at that! It’s Saturday, and I’ve got no post for you (cue sad trombone). There’s a silver lining this time, though. I’m smack in the middle of moving this blog from WordPress.com onto its own server, with a new domain name: iblueyonder.com. This blog will continue there, with all the previous posts intact, but there will be new content as well, including one consolidated place you can go for info on my FS projects and products, payware and freeware.
Keep an eye out. I’m working on the site design and structure this weekend, so hopefully I can get it live sometime this coming week.
In case you aren’t on the Flight Sim Store’s email list, here’s a little surprise: Orbx just extended their May Madness sale to include all downloadable products. That means that for this month, you can get NA Blue, Stark’s Twin Oaks, and Darrington Municipal for 30% off the normal list price. Already got these three? Tell your friends! More info at the FSS website.
I had a whole FF post worked up in my head, and was just about to start writing yesterday when I got an email from John Venema that was like a red-hot poker to my backside (in a good way). I’ve been waiting a long time to say this. Continue reading →
As this blog grows in popularity, I’m considering adding some new features. One of the things I am thinking about is creating an email newsletter that offers subscribers the inside scoop on my upcoming project progress and releases. I’m curious… if I were to do something like that, would you be interested in signing up for it? Obviously, there would be no cost. It’s just a way for me to keep better in touch with the community and gauge interest in my projects.
Another feature I just added is the ability to create polls. So here’s the first one for you:
Cody Bergland of Jaggyroad Films just released his latest opus, a preview of Orbx’s upcoming FTX NA Blue: Pacific Northwest scenery. Not only do you get stunning views of this gorgeous part of the world (though I may be biased), but also a couple of peeks at the first two payware airports designed to fit within it – 1S2 Darrington Municipal, and 7S3 Stark’s Twin Oaks (okay, I’m definitely biased). Watch it below, sure, but this is one that’s worth downloading the high res version.
Ack! I’m up to my neck in day-job work today, with no time to whip my weekly Fanboy Friday post into shape. My plan is to cobble it together tonight or tomorrow morning for a Spooky Saturday post instead. Thanks for bearing with me.
In the meantime, if you’re new to FF, you can browse the previous posts here.
And that means another heaping pile of stuff that you could spend all your money and time on, if you were so inclined. This week has been a real mixed bag of releases, so you’re sure to find something here that tickles your fancy, makes you roll your eyes, or both. So, what’s new? Continue reading →
