Land of cowboys - landscapes for PFJ
« on: August 08, 2012, 01:56:06 PM »
Hi all,

Too many fishes have lead me back to the country of cowboys.
I have started something like that I have done with Skeena river life sceneries.
An area with numerous real locations, and many enhancements.
Real airstrips in HD, 2 fictitious farm airstrips in HD, improved landclasses, and many new objects.

I am looking for beta-testers, so the 1st ones who give me names of some locations, areas, rivers, airstrips, coordinates, etc... will be welcome at a fishing lodge.

We are still in PFJ.
AND,  RTMM team members are not allowed to participate ! No discussion !

1st screens, some may help you.













Unfortunately, I'll do a lot of works at home in september, a lot ( my daughter is very angry) and i'll not able to draw and paint during september, on my computer.
Fortunately, Jacques will help me for those new sceneries.

Cheers,

Xavier

Hmmm.... I do see some water around!  If you have water, there must be a wood barge!

Brad, I think he is just trying to get some beta testers that are not currently involved with RTMM as you and others are in such a big way.  I'm sure there is no offense intended here, only an appeal for more participation.  :-)

Hi all,

Brad, my friend, you have the whole map of the project, and names of some locations, as the team members, I know you are trying to cheat.   ;D
Nor Jacques which is trying, as you, to corrupt me.
But, don't worry, you will test all, maybe. ;)

Some tips, we are on the eastern side of the coast mountains, on the land of Tsilhqot'in and Nechako people. Also land of wild horses.

And some more :





Later,

Xavier

My guess:
Chilcotin region,
valley between  Chilko River and Taseko River,
possibly
Nemaiah Valley around Nemaia Lake and Konni Lake

Dieter,

You are close to some locations.
Yes,  Tsil refers to Chilcotin plateau, Chilanko, Chilko,  close to some OzX NA locations.

You can go north, on land of Nechako tribe.

Another tip : name in gaëlic is Sliabh Thuaidh. One of my favourites countries

 ;)

Later,

Xavier

Sliabh Thuaidh should be Tweedsmuir Provincial Park, but that's a large area.
Maybe somewhere in the north area at the Nechako Reservoir.

Bonjour Xavier ( et j'en profite pour parler français pour une fois  :P )

Je reviens de Google Earth après y avoir passé quelques heures et après avoir avoir fait quelques recherches sur Google et je pensais justement à un endroit du côté de Tweedsmuir Provincial Park ou Nachako Reservoir  ;)
Mais aucun lieu par là bas ne m'a vraiment convaincue, je n'ai pas pu retrouver ce que j'ai vu sur les screens.
Je vais continuer à chercher  8)

PS : J'avais déjà cherché hier en vain, je vais connaitre toute la zone par coeur à force  ;D

Dieter and Handie,

Yes, we are into the Tweedsmuir park.
Northern borders of the sceneries are :

Sweeney mine - Andrew bay - Marila.

Take a look - jetez un coup d'oeil around Ootsa lake
from Andrew bay to Marila.

Tweedsmuir BC refers to the town of Tweedsmuir, Scotland, Scotish borders are a very nice area.

Another one :



Courage, Handie !
Il y aura peut-être des chevaux sauvages !
Il y a déjà du bétail.

Dieter, Handie.
You are welcome to ... a fishing lodge, another one !
There are some others rooms for guests !

Later,

Xavier

Est-ce que c'est cet endroit ?

53° 45' 25.39" N - 125° 59' 55.02" O ( dans Google Earth )

Il me semble reconnaitre le " pont " et la petite " chute d'eau " avec la rivière derrière ;)

There are some nice cleared forestland areas west of Ootsa Lake Sawmill along Ootsa Nadina Rd. that could be used to build ranch/farm/airstrip, but from your provided screenshots it's not possible to determine exact coodinates.

Well done Xavier, i like that sort of location.

The "hinterland" of the coastal mountain range is vast, unexplored country indeed. It has some real nice spots, lots of empty spaces and the absence of "civilisation" makes that land ideal for remote fishing camps and retreats.
An airfield that is only recogniseable at second glance, a farm, some cabins, a bench and  table under a tree. What else do we need for comfort? Drinks? Well, Orbx will not provide "beer flow" in the forseeable future, therefore my own fridge wil do the job ... ;)

Looking forward to this fishing camp.

Cheers,
Urs

Handie, YES !

This is the Skin lake spillway ( déversoir ).

Many thanks Urs.
I'm back from a 15mn flight, looking for cattle and wild horses, and I'm drinking iced beer at the ranch, there is a nice view to the valley !













CBT3 Pan Phillips is the fishing lodge which will welcome you.
There'll be also some abandoned airstrips in unknown conditions (real locations, but not included in OrbX PFJ)

Stay tuned, others locations soon...

 ;)
