[Polls] World Update XIII: Oceania Discussion

Yeah several places have bad water mask but the Bora Bora one is new. I’ve flown there often in the sim, it’s my go to place for watercraft, and the water mask before the WU didn’t have the chop on that half of the island.


oh, really? i just assumed water masks weren’t touched.

Unfortunately, I don’t know. There is a Wishlist topic to add photogrammetry maps to release notes:

You may wish to add your voice to that topic to raise awareness. I’m afraid that’s as much as I can offer.

As I mentioned to someone else, there is a Wishlist topic to include these for future world updates. I linked it in the post above this. :point_up:

Hi @kaha300d
I’m showing Davis Station pretty much where it should be located. Not sure why it’s not showing up for you. Did you do a search in the WM search box to find it?

Every other World Update has come with a list of Tin Cities. This doesn’t have any in the release notes, so I’m assuming there isn’t any or they’d be listed like they have been in the past. Plus, it’s been hours and no one has found any.

Unfortunately, I don’t have any information on how release notes are done. I don’t know if they are written by the same people from one release to the next.

One of the things you download in the package is Photogram cities.

I understand it says that, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s what we got

big elevation issues at PHKO

Shouldn’t there be an airfield? I will try searching. Thank you.

Same for SCIP elevation concerns, there is a walk on the parking lot in front of the reception hall

There’s no permanent runway there. I’ve included a link for the info I found on it.
Davis Station - Wikipedia and cargo are transported on to Davis by helicopter.

Heliports in Hawaii are POI and not Heliports. So you can’t select them like an airport and start flying from there.


I was so disappointed by that… plus the modeling is not really amazing… :man_facepalming:

This is Hapuna Heliport and its 4 helipads :


Congrats, you now have 8 helipads :laughing:


I’m sorry but Hawaii looks worst than before the update. I hope that it is because too many people are on right now. :crossed_fingers:


Anything not listed in the release notes presumably hasn’t changed, as far as points of interest and airports. AFAIK there’s no clear listing of where terrain meshes were improved, though.

Well, I was going to buy the ATR this evening but then I decided to drink some beers and chill out with some lady friends in Bora Bora. I know enough about real world aviation to know where my priorities lie.

Before anyone asks. I just knocked up this little scene myself with the SDK. Incidentally the SDK is much, much easier to use than it used to be for creating your own bespoke scenery add ons. Its great fun and adds an extra element to your enjoyment of the sim.

Now if you don’t mind I’m heading back to my little party.


My customer feedback: I love your product overall, but next time, if you don’t have photogrammetry cities for a world update, please focus on a different region and make it the WU instead!
