Thanks for the update to St.Vincent. What exactly have you added or fixed in v 1.1?

Hi

I will pick up Vol 2 today and very much look forward to Martinique when that time comes if at all? I am curious though as to what airlines will be included in vol 3, especially the very smallest ones like Mustique, SVG.

Caribbean Airlines also operates its Boeing B738 service into TSVA.

Yes, and of course there's a whole bunch of other airlines coming into St Vincent and St Lucia, but we focus on airlines and models not covered by most AI traffic addons.

yes, no need to spend time on repaints and schedules already available from others, that makes complete sense. For those airlines that you have made will we see the full fleet with the different registrations or one aircraft per model from each airline that represent the rest. What I mean is that for Mustique for example, will we see all five twin otter registrations J8-MUS, J8-VBQ etc?

Please also dont forget Bequia Air, they fly a Beech with registration J8-BQA, freqently seen at Argyle :)

It would make sense to add Dominica and Guadeloupe later, but we're yet unsure if we'll make those. We are in talks with another development team to see if we can split those islands between us. Same for Barbados. We won't approach TBPB before construction work for the new facilities is finished though. That might not be before 2020.
Ok, so Martinique is pushed to 2019, thats sad :(

Not pushed. I just don't want to raise expectations we might not be able to fulfill. There's a good chance there will be an FSDG-Martinique addon in our shop before the end of 2018 but I can't promise. There are 5 releases planned prior to it (POTC III, La Romana LITE, Dakar LITE, Bremen and Casablanca LITE). With St Vincent and St Lucia that will be the most sceneries we have ever released in a calendar year. Antalya and Martinique would make it 9 releases within 2018. As much as I would love for that to happen I expect at least 1 or 2 of those to hit the shelves in 2019.

ok, thanks for the update I understand you cant be everywhere at the same time but still a bit dissapointed, you were on a roll here with these islands boys :) I will pick up St Lucia today but I guess I have to go with other options for Martinique for the time beeing including FRANCEVFR Frensh Islands photoreal landscape and the Tropicalsim Martinique. Outdated yes, but better than nothing.

We always appreciate people "pushing" us towards new projects. I would say Martinique just climbed 1 or 2 steps on the ladder because of your persistency. ;-)

I found this file "TVSA_LL_30_tweaked.bgl" switched OFF, ".off" at the end. Should this be left with the ".off" at the end. I removed it without any faults, is that OK? :(

Michael

Please do not make manual changes in the scenery folder, the scenery configurator does that for you. ;-)
The file you mentioned illuminates the ground in P3Dv4 when dynamic lights are disabled. If you manually activate both files you'll
a) make the scenery configurator crash next time you want to change the setting
b) end up with a too bright apron at night

OK understood. Then if I have "Dynamic Lighting" deselected (OFF) this file should be "ON", correct?

Correct. Both files are switched on/off depending on if you enable dynamic lights in the config tool.

Thanks Thorsten.

Just as a note, I did deselect "Dynamic Lighting" in the configuration software and found that file was selected "off" when it should have been "on". I tried the config again and it does not alter that file, only the "dynamic lights.bgl" file. So it may be a fault in the config tool.

Michael

Sorry, my bad. For St Vincent we decided to not use the additional layer in P3Dv4 (unlike TLPL for example) since the results were better without it. If you prefer a brighter apron at night with or without dynamic lights you can manually activate it but I'd suggest not to.

First of all, I want to warn you that I am a fan of your work. I live in Guadeloupe and of course, I really hope that Guadeloupe product will be realized.
