Here is a teaser of our upcoming NZA Simulations NZMF - Milford Sound Region for Microsoft Flight Simulator. No set date for the release yet but we are definitely getting close for this huge region expansion pack.
Looking good and I can’t wait for it. There’s just one looming question: will it be compatible with MSFS2024
Yes, all mods transfer over as confirmed today in the FAQ.
Will this mod fix the METAR weather interpretation of snow in high Summer as we have now?
Live weather is not linked to scenery, the weather system cant be controlled by developers unfortunately. We have no access to the weather API.
We have had a look at what’s going on and it seems because there are sources for MeteoBlue (the weather partner for MSFS) for this area they approximate because of the average height data. Because the majority is mountainous for this area we get default snow. The problem cause is both algorithmic and source related.
We have mentioned it but the more people that log the same bug the more visibility it will get for the area, and some sort of work around may be programmed ?
Thanks so much. I’ll be purchasing!
Looking awesome! This is such a scenic approach, so will definitely get it!
Any updates on this? I am asking because…
Working on the trailer at the moment for it. We ended up adding even more content to it and retesting after we made some performance gains, so this pushed the date a little bit. I hate saying soon, and why we dont give dates because of the small last minute things that pop up, but we’re nearly there.
Epic shot! Can’t wait for the release!
Will this be coming to to console’s
The waterfall looks beautiful. Looks like there really are ways to make moving water look good in MSFS Looking forward to your scenery!!
What happened to the trailer by the way?
Water simulation is something that really needs to be addressed in MSFS2024. I don’t keep my hopes up we will see anything on that in MSFS2020
Now scheduled for release on 13-SEP and there’s more info on their page.
It looks incredible and is a day one purchase for me at just 20 Euros.
Wow…this is far more than I was expecting for this release. Day 1 purchase for me as well…I see a tour of New Zealand in my not too distant future.
Thanks, yes we have been working on water for a while. The trick has been not to cause any performance impact and we can say we have come up with an elegant solution to that.
Sergio and myself spent a bit of time working that one out so it looks good., the rest of the team (Kade, Nick, Elijah & Dean) have also been working away on various new things we have introduced. Its been a bit of a complicated beast getting animation working well.
RE: The trailer, it is all done and will be launched on the 13th when its live.
Yes the plan is to have this available on the marketplace however were at the mercy of the ingestion process, but they’re chewing through the ingestion backlog a lot faster these days.
That’s fine, of ok with ‘it’s here, when it’s here.’
Will the expansion also be available, and will it be free still, on console?
Doubtful it’ll be free, given that the MP doesn’t currently support freeware. It would need to be released as an update, or be included in the original package.
