Nantucket Island for P3Dv4 Released

We’re pleased to announce that Nantucket Island has been updated to version 1.02 for full compatibility with Lockheed Martin’s Prepar3D version 4. In addition, the seasonal and dynamic animation functionality has been converted to use SimObject Display Engine (SODE) in place of our old Viva technology. We think you’ll agree that the ease of use (not to mention not having to worry about compatibility with new sub-versions of P3D) make it well worth the switch. This new SODE version covers both Prepar3D 3 versions and 4.

Other Changes in version 1.02:

  • New grass textures for better realism
  • Enhanced ground poly textures
  • Lots more static planes – both GA and bizjets
  • Added detail in open hangar
  • Dynamic apron night lighting (P3Dv4 only)

These changes are planned as an update to the FSX version as well. Details will be announced once a release date has been set.

If you already own Nantucket for FSX and P3D3, download version 1.02 by logging into https://iblueyonder.com/my-account/ and click on the link to your Nantucket purchase. The 1.02 installer will be available in your list of downloads. Your registration number will work for this version as well. If you purchased through another store, your version should be available to you where you bought the original very soon.

If you haven’t gotten it yet, now is a great time to pick up your own copy!

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 [...]
