One last special price on the Subscription

I’ve had a couple of queries asking if there’s going to be another Subscription sale, but since it is already discounted from NZ$99 to NZ$79, I’ve been saying no. However since it’ll be removed from the Store when Real NZ Dunedin is released early next month, there’s one last chance…

Out the window at NZDN…

Real NZ Dunedin includes a few SODE*-controlled elements, such as windsocks and flags, plus the airbridges at NZDN. There are two airbridges, and hopefully both will be able to dock with your aircraft, although the other one (not shown) is not quite sorted yet, so it might not make it into the final release. This is a rough version at the moment.

I haven't really modelled the terminal interior, just enough to let you look through the window from the tarmac. Since I never fly jets, I had to grab the default 737 from FSX, hence the random livery:)

*SODE is Sim Object Display Engine, a great addon by Jeffrey Stähli, which gives the sim back some of the things we lost in FSX, like conditional scenery. His jetway control system overcomes the issues with the default (Ctrl-J) jetways.

Still on track for release next month, subject to everything surviving testing.

Real NZ Dunedin heading to beta


I hope to have a beta out in a couple of weeks. I will approach some subscribers who have pre-paid to help with this, but I will need a couple of testers who don’t have the Subscription, to round out the testing team. If you are reasonably well-known to me,…

Another ‘login’ gremlin

Some time ago I added a login form in the right-hand column of each page, this was meant to make it simpler for customers and subscribers. However for some reason which I’ve yet to sort out, this new ‘widget’ disables the main ‘login’ button for some people. I’ve removed the…

Real NZ Dunedin pre-pay now available to Subscribers


Although this is still a few months away, existing subscribers can show their support for Godzone and future local development by pre-purchasing Real NZ Dunedin for half price. Note that this is available for subscribers only, so anyone else will be re-directed to the usual bypass page if they click…

Subscriptions are once again available for a short time

I have promised a few people that I’d put the Subscription back in the Store once the multi-installers are available. So you can now purchase a Subscription, on the understanding that not a lot has changed from earlier in the year when I stopped the Subscription. The long-term goal remains…

Roelio’s video view of the Godzone Subscription scenery

Most simmers who frequent flightsim forums would know Roelio's work, as a flightsim screenshot artist. He's taken to video now, and his first release is this showcase look at the Godzone Subscription scenery.
Watch in 1080p for the full effect!

Subscription Multi-installers now available


Note: ‘when you see ‘multi-installer’ referred to, this will mean an installer designed specifically to offer the choice to install to four different simulators — FSX, FSX Steam Edition, Prepar3D 2.x, Prepar3D 3.x. This is not to be confused with ‘dual installers’ which install to FSX or Prepar3D 2.x. Subscribers,…

Subscription Multi-installers


These are being rolled out at the end of January, so here’s a few details of what to expect. These installers just add support for two new simulators, there are no other changes, so it is not recommended that you download these unless/until you use Prepar3D v3.x or FSX Steam…

Godzone plans for Prepar3D 3.0

I do intend to release Subscription installers to include version 3.0 of Prepar3D, but this may take some time to fit in. I had worked out a system that would allow additional simulator versions (e.g. FSX Steam, Prepar3D 3.x) to be added to a small downloadable script, so that you…

Buzzing about the Plateau


Since releasing Issue 10 I’ve been flat-out on other things, so today I’ve relaxed a bit with a quick flight around the volcanoes. This is the ‘default’ Carenado Beechcraft Bonanza. which is ideal for this flight.

Landing at Taumarunui

It’s becoming a bit of a tradition to upload a quick landing video when a new issue is due out — here’s Taumarunui, in FSX, after a hard day’s aerial top-dressing. This is a continuous unedited shot, so no fancy camera angles, just a ‘real’ look at what the pilot…

Godzone Subscription videos

Some time ago Google changed the rules regarding Youtube channels, which meant that I changed my channel name to match my real name, rather than ‘GVFlight’. However I’ve just realised that when I installed the new-look site, I put the old channel rather than the new one! I’ve fixed that…

Godzone Photoscenery Subscription map


Here’s a rough map of the Subscription scenery, although it does need some interpretation:) The Southern Lakes/Alps and Wellington coverage areas are complete, although not finished. That is, the photoscenery coverage has all been released, there’s just more autogen and Points of Interest (including airports) to come. The Central Plateau…

October news update


Next month there’ll be a bit of a tidy-up on the Windowlight site, following the release of Real NZ Dunedin. I’ll remove the Photoscenery Subscription from the Store, and retire it in its present form, so the next time you’ll see this scenery in the store will hopefully be in…
