Pacific Northwest Ferries Freeware released (P3Dv4)

Recommended Posts

Larry’s longstanding community scenery project, PNW Ferries and Terminals has made the cut and is now Orbx Freeware.  In order to do so it has undergone a major upgrade.


  • Many new terminals have been added in Puget Sound, all quite detailed, including adjacent marinas.
  • Terminal areas have been enlarged, annotated with autogen and have seasonal PR and night lighting.  Shorelines, roads and road traffic have been adjusted where appropriate.
  • All the large terminal models have been rebuilt and new ones added.
  • Port Townsend is now a mini Townscape which includes 2 large marinas and an adjacent pulp mill.
  • A number of POIs have been added or fixed up:  Point Wilson lighthouse, Mukilteo lighthouse, Smith Island, DeltaPort near Tsawwassen, Entrance Island with lighthouse and helipad and more.
  • Lighthouses are based on authentic models with custom light effects.
  • All terminals integrate with the Orbx airports and seaplane bases in the area; CAE3, CAC8, KORS, KFHR, and 74S.
  • The large marina and ferry terminal at Point Defiance serves as a point of interest for Orbx KTIW as you approach from the north.  It’s worth a closer look too.
  • There is a lot to explore; 47 terminal areas plus other features of interest.
  • Besides the WSF and BC AI ferries, there are a number of ancillary AI boats; tugs, a couple of cargo ships, cruise ships and a large tanker all quite detailed. 
  • And of course there is the usual Extras folder. Among other things it has a pilotable version of the WSF ferry MV Kaleetan as well as a small xml add-on that will enable all new Orbx wave effects.
  • The entire installation is managed by Orbx Central so no more fiddling around  having to disable default traffic files.


The new wave effects have been anticipated for some time and we have chosen this method of distribution to let you try them now if you wish rather than wait an unknown period of time for technical issues to be solved.


As was the case for CAE3, Pacific Northwest Ferries is built for Prepar3D v4.  It will be offered as Orbx Freeware via Orbx Central. Orbx Pacific Northwest is required. https://orbxdirect.com/product/pnw
