    Is it my mistake or where you the builder who did all the New York city line of bridges? They seem to have disappeared after the World update 4 and I still have the download files and was wondering if I can still reinstall them? They don't even show up here at Flightsim.TO anymore, curious

      Nope, that wasn't me.

    Great work FreakyD, however the Alex Fraser bridge is not correct. In reality both the vertical towers that hold the steel cables are situated over the river, you have one tower situated quite a way inland from the river which means that the bridge is not central over the river. It looks rather odd! Have driven over the Alex Fraser bridge a few times in the past.

    Wow! Excellent job. Definitely a huge improvement over the default bridges. Any chance you can design the SkyTrain bridge that passes over the Fraser River? That would be pretty cool! Thank you!

    Fantastic! I just installed V1.3 and took off in my trusty C172 and flew from Pitt Meadows and checked out the Golden Ears bridge addition and west to New West and then off to the Second Narrows and west to Lions Gate and around to the Burrard street and downtown bridges. Superb work! Thanks for the pearls! The night lighting effects are excellent! You should really add a "Buy me a coffee" button to your posting, I for one would like to show my appreciate for your magnificent work. Thanks again to listening to us and updating. You made the Vancouver flying experience excellent!

    It would be great if the Queensborough and Skytrain bridges in New West were added as well as lighting for the north shore mountains' ( Cypress, Grouse, Seymour). Those lights are almost as iconic as the pearls on Lions Gate bridge 😉

      Thanks. Im starting to figure out how to build adequate bridge models in blender and get the sim car traffic to recognize it.
      I looked at the queens borough bridge and didn't see anything special about it that warranted modeling. Same deal with the sky train bridges.
      The north shore lights... not sure what you're referring to. So you have pictures? Are they bridge related?
    • HighburyYVR

      No, the North Shore light are not bridge related. They are ski hills. I can't speak for scorpionbc of course but I think he asked you since you are working on the area. I agree that they are an iconic part of Vancouver's skyline though even if they are not in the scope of your project.

    Thank you very much for doing this - great job!

    A few of the Eastern arrivals in CYVR come in via Pitt Meadows, so would it be possible to take a look at doing the Golden Ears Bridge one day? It would be a really useful landmark on the Fraser to add to this great scenery addition. Thanks again!

    Love it! If we could get lights on the Lions Gate that would be incredible. Also if you could look into adding the Golden Ears Bridge in that would be awesome!

      I've been playing around with that. There must be some secret Asobo sauce that allows lights to show up at distance that peons like me do not have. When I add in lighted spheres, they look great as long as you are 100 ft away. Beyond that, they are not visible. I have a few more ideas to test involving blender scaling. I know that model scaling is a key factor in how MS spawns assets (small scales render at larger distances). So, I'm going to model a 100ft sphere with 1:1 scaling then scale it way down until it's a 6" sphere.
