Absolute Magic

Last night, I had the chance to take a rare sim flight for pure pleasure. I’ve been amassing some advanced add-ons for FSX lately, and I thought it was high time I gave ’em all a go. What I got was absolute digital magic. Continue reading

Putting the Final Polish on Tongass

We are soooooooooo close now! Tongass Fjords X is in beta, and thanks to our eagle-eyed team, we’re squashing bugs and getting things tidied up for a release soon. In the meantime, our “staff photographer”, Nick Churchill, has been lensing around the beta of Sitka. Is there anything this guy can’t make look even better? Here are a few from his most recent shoot.

Tongass Fjords for FSX – Progress

Sometimes when I’m deep in a scenery project, I forget to say hi now and then to my blog readers. Very sorry for that, but at least I have a decent excuse… Tongass Fjords for FSX is nearing completion. Originally, I thought all I would do would be to update a few models to FSX standards and hit “export”, then toss it over the wall to our virtual bush-flying fans. Then Holger Sandmann found some great aerial shots of Sitka, Alaska and I ended up going much deeper into re-working the town than I expected.

Now the same has happened with Petersburg. I got some more shots from a few guys who frequent the Sim-Outhouse forums, and that helped me get a better idea of what the harborfront is like there, so I dove into adding some more models. I’ve attached a few shots to show how things stand now. Soon, my friends! Very soon…

Silence is Golden

Sorry for not writing more lately. While I’ve been ignoring this blog, I’ve been hip-deep in work on several other projects. For bush fliers, the work continues on the Tongass Fjords X package, release date TBD. I’ll try to post some screenies soon — you’ll like what you see. Also, Emma Field X is back in the works, albeit at an early stage. And for RealAir’s upcoming FSX Spitfire, there will be an updated version of my RAF West Malling airfield.

As if that wasn’t enough, I’ve also beenĀ  spending a great deal of time on my latest novel, working title: Last Thurday. As I work through the process of noveling, ideas occur to me for short essays. I’ve begun collecting them on my new writing blog Words for Writers.

Please accept my apologies for not being a more attentive FS blogger. I’ll get back on track soon, I promise. And I’ll have lots of pics to post, too! Say tuned.
