Pilots,

Great news!

     clap

There's been a lot of improvements made to Jurassic Park (Adventure Pack 11).  I haven't yet updated the narrative, but I'll give some details for those who want to jump in and give it a fly-by.

The airport has been updated, and will now show in your sim's airport listing as airport Jurassic Park (ISNU).  You can now set a gps track to is as part of a normal flight plan, or if you wish, set your ADF radio to the Jurassic Park's NDB frequency of 312.0 and find your way there the old fashioned way.  Note that there's a 75-mile limit to the NDB so you may need to dead-reckon from your origin airport until you pick up the frequency.

The airport and the park has now been equipped with night lighting so you can safely make night landings there, and the park is lit up at night now so it's equally fun to explore it during the day, dusk and night.  You'll note that a couple of the dinosaurs are more active this time (one might say 'animated'), as is the worker helping get the cage out of the plane parked on the ramp.  Additionally, there's now water access to the park - with a pier and large shipping vessel dropping off supplies.

Download the zipped scenery files in the Downloads area of our main menu, and feel free to review the description of the original Adventure flight plan on the Adventure Packs page, although you can fly these any time from anywhere.  

The scenery should work with FSX and P3d through v4.  It is also compatible with FTX Vector and Global packs.  North America OpenLC from Orbx results in some ground poly bleed-through into the Jurassic scene, so you may wish to click that scenery off in your scenery library (two files) when flying this.  I've not tried it with other addons, so I can't say if there might be other conflicts.

Enjoy,

John

Thanks Philippe,

Yes...Jurassic Park is probably my most favorite Adventure - as it's certainly the one I put the most time and effort into I think.  I may still not be done wink, but it's great fun to fly into and tour.  With the latest upgrade, I think it's best to try to arrive at early dusk so the night lights are illuminated but that you can still see around - like the circling birds.  Otherwise, most of the rest of the scene is now lit at night - so it's really fun to fly into and tour at dusk.  This doesn't diminish the daytime flights into ISNU, but it's worth touring the park in both night and day mode.

I'm currently working on a new video of the night/dusk tour.

John
