After clearing customs at the Seair terminal in Nanaimo (Orbx CAC8) , the next scheduled stop for Kenmore Air flight 410 is John Henry’s, one of few classic marinas still remaining in the Pacific Northwest. It has not changed much since I was first there 50 years ago. I have tried to capture the atmosphere there; to show why people keep coming back year after year. I should mention that this project is quite different from my previous ones, but it’s still in keeping with the main theme – Seattle to Desolation Sound via floatplane. I hope you like it. Here’s a link to a short drone video that gives a feel for what the Pender Harbour area is really like. It's known as 'the Venice of the North'. Some of the scenery features: John Henry’s Marina, the Sundowner Inn and many nearby buildings Over 300 docks and marinas modeled with reasonably accurate footprints Roughly 20 square km of photoreal scenery (12 square km land coverage) Three hundred or more static pleasure craft moored at the various docks (half that for FSX) A high resolution AI model of the pleasure craft Angelfish A high resolution AI model of the Pender Harbour tour boat Slocat An AI racing sailboat A static model of a Kenmore Air DHC3 at the seaplane dock daytime May through Sept. Custom, wake, wave, sound and navigation light effects Accurate marine navigation aids PeopleFlow; the number of people you see will depend on the season. As an extra, a pilotable version of the pleasure craft Angelfish A number of real life challenges for the floatplane pilot If you give CAG8 a try, please read the User Guide, or at least look at the charts and maps; you chance of finding the seaplane dock is otherwise not so good. CAG8 is now in the beta stage, so if all goes well the release should be not too far away. Now what you really want to see: the screenshots. (There is one real life shot in this mix too, just for fun.) Thanks to Rob Abernathy for a few of these. This first shot is from Google Earth showing the extent of the scenery. The rest are in random order.
