FSX/P3D Freeware Scenery: The Heron's Nest 2.0

Postby FlyTexas » 20 Apr 2017, 12:45

Presenting Heron's Nest 2.0. Brought to you free of charge courtesy of the good people at iBlue Yonder. The island itself is completely 3D modeled...no flat-as-a-board runway here. :lol: The screenies kind of speak for themselves. The only niggle I've come across is the water "runway" appearing as paved instead of water. :dunno: Any who a nice little island at a very nice price. You can download it at https://iblueyonder.com/. Oh, the aircraft is the Simflight3D's '47 Cessna 140 in case you were wondering. :)

Thanks for the HU Brian.
From my reading, it appears to be one of those "what if" sceneries.
I guess it's a case of 'to each their own.'
My personal feeling is that there's enough real world to tinker with, so I won't take up their kind and generous free offer.
I used to think I was stupid, but I realised it was just silly.
Cheers, Mike.

Think you might need to trim back some of the trees Rick, the props should do it!! :lol: :lol:

Regards
Nigel.
Did you know that according to the laws of aerodynamics it is impossible for a bumble bee to fly.......fortunately the bumble bee doesn't know any thing about aerodynamics, so carries on flying.

You'll get the 748 in and out of there Rick. Just don't stop :lol:

I've been tempted by Bill's Nantucket scenery too (available as payware from JF) but as Mike said earlier.. I too have more places than I can ever dream of going to so won't be bothering. Very nice though ;)

You two are clearly throwing down the gauntlet. :lol: If I don't make it back give Valerie Leon all my love.

The Ryanair 748 drew the short straw so here she goes. :rock:

*gulp*

Through the X's and through the fence. About 1/3 of the port wing should now be missing due to the trees...but she's up!
Image

Woo hoo!
Image

I don't feel good about this.
Image

Farewell Valerie!

Valerie appears to be real scenery, bumpmaps aside.
How come no goosebumps? The locals seem to be well rugged up!

I tried it out today, looks pretty good. I managed to land my first try with one of Milton Shupe's Aero Commander's. Everything was going great until when turning around to taxi back to the buildings I got a bit too far off the runway and fell through the island.
