This is just excellent! Seychelles has often been overlooked by Flight Sim developers however now it seems to have caught the eye of the best scenery producer for FSX. I'm overjoyed, and I'll certainly be purchasing this from the second it's made available!

Thanks for the quick reply too!!

Will this Seychelles be compatible with and incorporate any new features of Prepar 3d version 2 available in a few Days with regards to shadows etc?

Thanks

Beyond brilliant! Just a question: the Air Seychelles Twin Otter in the last preview image, is that an AI model, or a a livery from the Twin Otter original, or perhaps from the latest Twin Otter Extended? Thanks in advance

We can only answer the P3D V2 question after having tested this thoroughly, but we don't expect an issues, as the new P3D should be able to handle sceneries created for the old version.

The Twin Otter model is the old Aerosoft Twotter, so with the new version, it should look even better. The livery can be downloaded from the Aerosoft forums.
We included a custom AI model of the Twin Otter 300 with the add-on and created 2 Air Seychelles liveries - but FSX AI aircraft usually don't bank this much. :D
