…. is now released after more than two years of development: Tongass Fjords X by Holger Sandmann and Bill Womack! “…. Tongass Fjords X returns Alaska back to the flightsimmers, after Microsoft missed a beat in that particular area of the world. Like in their FS2004 version, Sandman and Womack have managed to bring an unprecendented level of realism and immersion into the area. With Tongass Fjords X there are also quite a few new technologies introduced, like partial phototextures to render realistic glaciers (over 250 hand-made ones to be precise!), automatic freezing of water in the winter, and much more. Check out some comparison shots here.
But that’s not all. FSAddon promised a discount for existing customers. Well, we’ve done even better. We’re giving a discount to ALL (future) customers and have lowered the price from a planned Euro 34 to a very ‘crisis-friendly’ price of only Euro 27,95!!
That means there is NO excuse anymore to not buy this Mother of all FSX Landscapes and indulge in many months of bush flying, discoveries and sheer awe….. This is also the perfect reason to swap from the good old FS9 to the ‘new’ Flight Simultor X!….”.
“….. Tongass Fjords X is an addition to Microsoft’s Flight Simulator X that will turn a large part of southeast Alaska and northwestern British Columbia (some 80,000 square kilometers!) into the beautiful piece of nature that it really is!
You get a flying environment that puts you in the pilot seat flying around some of the most stunning landscapes you may find in the real world.
You not only get the ACTUAL coast lines, lakes, islands, roads, rivers and glaciers (!) installed on your FSX, but in addition some very talented people have added “things to see and things to find” for you in that rugged area of fjords, mountains, lakes and sea.
You will be able to visit many of the US Forestry Service cabins used by hunters, fishermen and hikers hidden near the many lakes and fjords. These cabins are meticulously recreated by Bill Womack.
What is Alaska without shipping!? We have added moving ships and boats, created by Mitsuya Hamaguchi and Larry Silsbee in many different locations, not just in harbors. Spot and then follow them with your Beaver!
And then there are the many scenery additions by Bill Womack who recreated Sitka and Petersburg airports as well as landmark objects of Sitka and along the Sitka and Petersburg harbor front…..”.
