Minor PNW ferry updates

It turns out that the latest Orbxlibs update exposed an error in the Taswwassen ferry terminal scenery which is now fixed. A number of other minor errors are fixed too:

Fixed modeling errors including floating bench on Spirit Class ferries
Adjusted several effects including the Queen of Nanaimo wake
Fixed problem with flatten at Tsawwassen which caused landclass to cover the water near the terminal. (Same problem as with Orbx CAC8 Area B.)

See the download link for the latest files.  If you spot other instances of water being covered by landclass, please let me know.  Thanks much,


Edited to add:  it turns out that WinZip was creating corrupt zip files; as of April 6, that should be corrected now.

Ferry traffic file updated for Orbx KBID

In preparation for the release of  Orbx KBID I have made a minor change to the PNW AI ferries traffic file. As long as your ship and ferries slider is set to less than 95 percent you will no longer see a default 5 times oversize Washington state ferry beached on a sandbar. The fix for Orbx Friday Harbor remains.

The Updated_traffic_file.zip is located in this OneDrive folder:


The LR_PNW_ferries_complete.zip file will be updated with this file soon.

CAX6 released by Orbx

Orbx has now released my latest project, CAX6 Ganges Water Aerodrome. https://orbxdirect.com/product/cax6

This was a very special project for me; it was my way of honoring the memory of my friendship with the late Jon Patch. Jon was the one who got me started in this direction.

I should add that words count. Based on such words from sources one can guess, I had made a firm commitment to make things only for my own enjoyment. Jon slowly convinced me otherwise. (But I still worry that it will all blow up in my face.)


Tanker addons for Orbx PAVD

I suppose most of those interested will have already found this but in case not, here is some info about a small addition to the PNW ferry system that adds an AI and a static tanker to Valdez harbor. This functions  as a minor addon for Orbx PAVD, Pioneer Field, now released. Thanks to Marcus for his feedback in implementing this idea.


Instructions specific to Valdez are now in the same OneDrive folder with the rest of the ferry stuff.

Nanaimo CAC8 v1.10 now released

Should any of you have missed it, the service pack for Nanaimo CAC8 has now been released by Orbx. It adds ‘Area B’, the large Departure Bay ferry terminal, the Seair seaplane terminal, reasonably authentic buildings along the waterfront, a high res tug and fuel barge, another AI boat, etc. I guess it’s more than a ‘service pack’; more like a new version.
