Last year, we released our first scenery - a little island getaway off the coast of Maine for pilots with the brass cojones to land there. It was a big hit, but some 'simmers who ran third-party terrain mesh had some issues with it. We knocked around with some changes to the mesh that were [...]
The kind folks at FSElite.com just posted an interview with yours truly on their site. I fear I rambled on a bit, but if you've ever been even a little interested in what motivates me (Bill) and how I go about my day, it might be an interesting read. Plus: teasers about our next big [...]
One of the challenges of being a small design studio (I like to think of us as "boutique", because it sounds better) is the creation of assets that larger developers already have lying around on the shelf. For instance, slowly but surely we're working to bring new, reusable libraries of objects online that will speed [...]
Today's Nantucket destination is perhaps the unluckiest spot of real estate on the island, the Brant Point lighthouse. If not for the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, this poor lighthouse might have been the oldest on Nantucket. The whaling industry on Nantucket was booming by the mid 1700's. In order to improve safety for [...]
For users of Nantucket Island 1.0, we've released a service pack that fixes commonly reported problems and adds some enhancements as well. NOTE: If you purchased Nantucket on or after February 1, 2017, this update is already part of your 1.01 download. There is no need to download it again. For users who purchased Nantucket [...]
Time for a little non-sequitur rant. I'm on my morning walk when I passed this sign on the trail. I've passed it dozens of times before without paying much attention to it, but something nagged at a dark corner of my brain about it. Designers, before you think I'm singling you out, understand that I'm [...]
It's less prominent than the lighthouses, much shorter than the water towers, so it's easy to see how you might have overlooked Nantucket's Old Mill. Still, for those willing to search it out, it's there in the Nantucket Island scenery in all its pseudo-Dutch glory; right where it's been for nearly 300 years. I was [...]
This is the first in a series of posts to help you get to know the history and features of Nantucket island. Our first stop: Sankaty Head lighthouse. One of the most dramatic views on Nantucket can be found at Sconset Bluffs, a sheer sandy cliff that's been slowly tumbling into the ocean for years, [...]
Our good friend Alexander Ther (ateh one) has created another of his masterpieces. This time it's the official video for Nantucket, and it's a beauty! Find out more about Nantucket Island for FSX & Prepar3D here.
The first review of Nantucket Island is in! Joe Lawford of Mutley's Hangar has posted his take on the scenery in a comprehensive review at http://www.mutleyshangar.com/reviews/joe/bs-kack/bs-kack.htm. Looks like he's enjoying island life, and it shows from the screenshots.
