Orbx | Announces New Freeware + Previews!


Orbx has today announced the development of a new freeware scenery package for YRC Refuge Cove Seaplane Base!

In a post to the Orbx forums, Orbx Developer, Larry R explains the reason why he developed this scenery, he wrote: “I made it to CAC8 Nanaimo and then across the Strait of Georgia to CAG8 Pender Harbour. Now on to Desolation Sound and YRC Refuge Cove Seaplane Base. Why go there? It’s what many think of as the most spectacular area for boating in the Pacific Northwest.  The scenery is equally impressive from the air. For a good portion of my life I spent my vacations there on the family boat. I did not have that much time off so I would fly up and back on Kenmore Air. Most all the scenery I have done lately is an attempt to recreate that wonderful experience and Desolation Sound was what it was all about.”

He went on to say: “YRC is now being tested and will be released (you have heard this before) when it’s ready. I should mention that Orbx YRC Refuge Cove Seaplane Base will replace a quite old and not that good version of Refuge Cove that had been posted on my blog. It’s been removed, and if you happen to have it you must remove it too because it’s not compatible.

Of course what you really want to see are the screenshots so here they are; some of Refuge Cove, Squirrel Cove, Mink Island and two from Forbes Bay in that order.

Incidentally, the lines off the sterns of a few boats at Mink Island as shown in the screenshots are not mistakes. At many locations in Desolation Sound boats are typically ‘sprung to shore’ to prevent the anchor from pulling loose and not having time to reset if the wind changes direction.”
