  • Mathijs Kok changed the title to Offshore Industries: North-Western Europe

Mathijs,

 

with regards to EHKD.
The NL2000 team have it availible for P3D.
They allowed me to convert there offshore islands to X-plane and share it on the X-plane.org in my dutch offshore scenery.

 

Maybe they are also prepared to do that with EHKD for MSFS.

Mathijs,

 

I love your passion for this project.
Can not wait to have this and wearout my simulator during all the offshore missions!!!!!

 

Any ETA you want to share?

 

Hard to say, Christian has a daytime job so I m not willing to push him to a solid date. As you say, there is a lot of passion in this project so we rather get it right than get it fast.

 

At this moment we not far from completing all objects. After that we have these steps to completed:

  1. Place all the 'standard' objects like ships, turbines, buoys. There are many thousands but this is to a large degree an automated process we got databases to guide that.
  2. Create the places where installation is done. So where new turbines are being placed or new oil/gas wells are being  drilled. Those really will be the highlights of the project. You will see the huge cranes, the huge support vessels, the crew boats, the emergency vessels etc. Often hundreds of people work on these things and they are really massive work sites.
  3. Combine the files into an project and share that with our testers are partners (like the Global Shipping crew so they can avoid their ships sailing through wind parks etc)
  4. Manuals, installers yada yada yada.

Okay, way over the top detail, but if we got the models and have no limits in framerates or memory, why not use it? Certainly makes for impressive screenshots!

@Mathijs KokThe current Freeware EHKD looks great indeed.
I had a crappy earlier one on my system which interferred with the new one.
Therefore I didn’t notice the quality and stalked you a bit about it.

I am looking forward for the release of this already amazing product by the look of the previews you give.

 

BTW has aerosoft any development plans for MSFS helicopters in the future.
Could be a bonus in the portfolio with this product in it.

Agreed. We did choppers before with good succes. However, until helicopters are fully covered in the SDK we are hesitant.

I just seen we now sell a Paris Helicopter DLC. https://www.aerosoft.com/en/microsoft-flight-simulator/msfs-sceneries/3864/france-vfr-paris-heliports-helipads-msfs

 

I think choppers will be big in the sim.

Agreed!

 

The FS2020 scenery is generally good enough to make low slow flying amazing.

 

Hopefully when this excellent looking N Sea dlc comes out we’ll have some big commercial helicopters available that make visiting all the rigs etc even more fun and challenging in poor weather.
