Coming Soon at Return to Misty Moorings (#3)
« on: December 30, 2018, 10:37:09 AM »
Work is progressing on the update to Misty's Place. Doug and I have been actively working on a lot of things to our home base. Here's some night time lighting I'm working on currently. I wanted to keep Misty's Place in a soft light and not reliant on typical airport lighting with strobes, taxiway lights, etc. So, playing around with things I came upon a really nice effect using some of Steve Weinkamer's excellent lighting effects he created. I'm very happy with these results.

This new lighting Brad and I have been working on has taken a lot of time and effort, but we are sure you will love the results. You'll have some options as to whether or not you want to use the lighting options. We wanted to keep it "realistic" yet give you more ways to use Misty's Place. Night and dusk/dawn flights are possible, land and water now. Also, in BAD weather, the approach lighting will "punch through" to guide you safely to the runway. We are using Steve's special lights for these effects.

When the new Misty's Place is released, you'll have a whole different "feel" for it. It is basically the same, having the same elements, but it is more spread out...giving you more room on the ramps. Also theo "photoreal" runway/ramp area is much better than what we had before.

The "pull out" (used by many landing float, but climbing up onto the land) has been smoothed so there is no large "hump" to get over. The new runway has a circular turn-around on each end.

And probably the most amazing difference is that Misty's Place now uses Rod Jackson's Season Switcher so you have different things to see in the different seasons.

This will be going out beta to the team shortly, so stay tuned.

The "lighting" makes it happen, Steve.  I didn't know we had that goundcover lighting, Brad showed it to me. That one really works well, as do all the others.  We are looking at different "options" for how much lighting people might want. The purists will want it dark (probably to save the turtles or something), others would like just enough light to see after dark, and some want it LIT UP!  We can give them some or all with what we are building.  The lights really make such a difference at dusk/night/dawn. Thank you again!

Those were a real learning experience, and now I'don't remember how I did them, or what I learned!

Brad and I are spending a great deal of time on the renewed Misty's Place. This shows you what an addition Steve's lighting is to this project. Here is a screenshot of "dusk" at Misty's Place. I thought you might like an update as to what it is looking like right now ... its coming soon! (Don't forget, you can click on the image for a larger view).
