A few folks have asked for what areas the upcoming FTX Pacific Fjords and Northern Rockies regions cover, so here's two KMZ files which show the boundaries and airports being upgraded. This is by no means final, and we'll add in any specific features and POIs as we get closer to RTM.  I will make a point of linking to these KMZ files from the website also.

Just before the question arises: the red boundary on the Pacific Fjords KMZ marks the Tongass Fjords X area. It's not an orbx product but Bill Womack and Holger Sandmann produced it and it has the same quality as your favourite orbx regions. ;)

Yep...but great to see a new "Misty Fjords" to appear! I will certainly fill  the gap between Tongass and PNW.

Yes, thanks for that J.

These two quite large areas are certainly going to significantly increase the Orbx, I suppose I've got to say, type area available.

Quite clever too to develop significant bits of Canada and the USA together.  Talk about killing two birds with one shot, well, three at the moment really. ;D

Oh yeah! If you consider that a lot of my low and slow GA flights aren't longer than the width of the W you see on the pic (and flying from the top left of the P to the right of the W is a mighty long flight in my book!), you can imagine how much larger my FSX world will become! :) It'll take years before I've seen it all! :P As I've said before, I haven't really flown anywhere else than in PNW since the day it was released and I will still be flying there for sure by the time NRM and PF are released, so... I am a happy man. ;)

BTW The larger area will be quite nice for the Airbus X I am planning to buy. :)

Great news! Misty Fjords was the first serious package I bought back int he days of FS9, as soon as it came out, years ago. I have of course Tongass Fjords X and I do miss visiting the area around Ketchikan as I don't do fly default anything no more. This is great news!

I don't have Tongass Fjords "yet".  Can you clarify if Pacific Fjords will overlap Tongass?

It won't overlap. NA Blue PF ends exactly where Tongass begins.

I have flown around Alberta a little in Cessnas and live in Calgary and I am VERY excited about ORBX quality scenery comming to my home town.

Need any local pictures?! Probably don't have access to Calgary Intl too much in terms of everything but a good deal of access to Springbank Airport CYBW. :)

Anyway. This is going to be so cool!

That's really great news. I love Tongass Fjords and hoped that there would one day be a junction with FTX NA, but I didn't expect we would actually get the whole gap filled in one go. It's really great! I might restart some Air Hauler operations around there!

Fwiw, I do not switch back to default scenery when flying outside of PNW...and have not noticed anything unusual. What would be a tell tale that I am not using the default scenery bgls...?
