Nantucket is Getting Livelier Soon!

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 development of future projects. 

Our first order of business was to create a larger set of static GA planes we could use to enhance airports like Nantucket. As you can see, it’s coming along nicely…


We’re also hard at work on a set of animated people, along with a whole bunch of other flotsam that will do a better job of “selling” the realism of our airports.

The first public airing of all this will be in an upcoming free enhancement for the Nantucket Island scenery called “Nantucket PowerpACK” (get it?) It will tentatively include:

  • New static aircraft placed all around the airport
  • Animated people
  • More objects in open hangars
  • AI traffic files
  • Custom-made ferries with real-world AI schedules

As we get closer to release, I’ll keep everyone updated on progress.

    Bill, that will put the finishing touches on Nantucket before the busy season. The AI Delta bird has a flight attendant that appears at the bottom of the boarding stairs. Hopefully she will have some passengers to greet soon. Thanks for you continued effort on this project.

    Hi Bill,

    You’ve always been a class act all around – the last lighting enhancements really gave the airport some pop – looking forward to your new additions – the pix look great… Appreciate your continued improvements to this little jewel…
