Chatham, Kent – 25th June 2015 Earlier this year, Dovetail Games, the multi award-winning developer and publisher of a range of simulation games announced that it has agreed a partnership with flight simulation software publisher and developer Orbx Simulation Systems.

 

Friday Harbor for FSX: Steam Edition is optimised specifically for the Steam platform. This high-quality airport and scenery pack will feature an automatic installation process via Steam, making Friday Harbor your default starting location and will be completely self-contained without any dependencies on previous releases from Orbx. Friday Harbor will be available exclusively first to FSX: Steam Edition consumers. 

 

A superb photo real edition, this DLC offers levels of detail you've never experienced before, taking the player to one of the most beautiful bush flying locations in the world, the San Juan Islands in the US Pacific Northwest. The islands’ main airport, KHFR Friday Harbor, has been accurately reproduced down to the tiniest detail, alongside nine other airfields. In addition, every grass strip and private airport on San Juan Island has also been given a full makeover giving you a wealth of locations to explore.

 

Key features

Detailed ground imagery at 15cm per pixel for the airport

Photo realistic representation of San Juan Island in 60cm per pixel

Custom 5m-terrain mesh for the entire island

Intricately modelled airport, marina and fishing village

Animated people and vehicles around the airport

3D volumetric trees, grasses and vegetation

Accurate shore watermasks 

Expert colour matching per season

Optional custom autogen trees for improved authenticity

Optional custom ground bump map for improved clarity

Full DLC control panel app to customise player’s level of detail

 

Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition was launched by Dovetail Games in December 2014.  It delivers authentic aviation experience for simulation enthusiasts and those with a passion for aviation.  

 

The game is available now on Windows PC via Steam. For further information, please visit www.dovetailgames.com or https://fsxinsider.com/.

Anyone know what it means when they say the scenery has been optimized specifically for Steam?

with the ORBX stuff it always installs into my Steam sim fine but it says it cant find scenery.cfg

however its there and works fine so maybe being optimized it knows the location, I believe dovetail did move that file..
