Seychelles for XP

Any chance for this scenery to come to XP? Or any new version under development?

We're currently not working on XP11 addons or XP11 versions but we're looking into it.

You really should consider converting a few of your sceneries for P3D over to XP. They will really shine! I did a "quick and dirty" conversion of your Seychelles scenery using FS2XP (for personal use), and even though the scenery was a little mess, since FS2XP did a terrible job, it was still beautiful. It's a completely different atmosphere in XP. Did a quick flight from Mahe to Praslin in the default C172. The lighting and graphics are so much better in XP.

Hope you will experiment with the XP platform.

Thorsten,

I would also love to see my favorite scenery (Seychelles) in X-Plane 11, instant buy for me. I have both P3Dv4 & X-Plane 11 installed on my PC and to be honest X Plane 11 has more potential IMHO and it looks like the X Plane user base is growing rapidly with many 3rd party developers joining the bandwagon.

Go for it Thorsten ;-)

Also any chance of having a v3 of Seychelles with PBR textures, free or paid upgrade is ok for me :)

Warmest regards
Daniel

Would also love to see a version 3 for this scenery. I'll be more than happy to pay for a new version of the Seychelles.
V2 is now very old, and a lot has changed since it was developed.

Here's a few suggestions for a potential v3:

- denser autogen vegetation (look at Orbx Pago Pago scenery, looks stunning), and also denser buildings autogen
- some of the photoscenery needs some color correction
- more POIs, resorts etc.
- people and traffic at airports etc. to make the scenery look more alive
- generally more details in the scenery
- "cityscape" for the most important islands like Mahe, Praslin, La Digue etc.
- PBR support
- P3D and XP

Again, the Orbx Pago Pago scenery is an excellent example of how good a version 3 of FSDG's Seychelles could look like if they put in some effort. Commercially I can't see how this would not be profitable.

FSDG's Seychelles scenery is still my favorite scenery for many years, and I've been using it regulary since it was released. I just love this place. But the scenery starts to show it's age, so it's about time for an upgrade ;)
