CBB7 Tipella BC, Canada Freeware Previews

99 posts in this topic

Tipella, BC Canada is located in the quiet backwaters of the Pacific Northwest. In the early days over 3000 miners and fortune seekers made their way to Little Tipella Creek on Harrison Lake in search of the elusive, noble metal. In the early 1900's real estate developers speculated on the land itself, but the venture failed and the area was eventually transformed into a logging camp that still operates today. ORBX has  created Tipella CBB7 for those who wish to experience the sense of romance and adventure that makes this area a bush pilots favorite.


 


Tipella CBB7 is a challenging little grass & gravel strip that bush pilots will love. Approaches require skill  and knowledge of the terrain, weather and winds. A successful first attempt is rare and a few go-arounds are more likely than not.


 


ORBX will be releasing CBB7 as a freeware add on for everyone's enjoyment, but this little backwater strip should prove to be a special treat for PNW bush aviation enthusiasts and those who love float planes adventures.


 


Screens from the devs desk.


Enjoy.

Let me be the first to say "That's what I'm talking about!"   If this is your first work for ORBX I suggest they keep you on their staff!   Amazing looking scenery.

    Gordon, are you from BC?, cause it looks like it.  The grass, weeds, and bush are impressive, but boy do they look good on the water.  If you've spent any time on a lake in BC you know that there are weeds a grass in the water. Impressive.

I'm not from BC, but I spend a fair share of my time in a float tube in the Sierra Nevada high lakes around Mammoth Lakes, CA where I have the privilege of residing. I've had so many incredible views kicking in and out of the grasses and stumps that this aspect of the design was just second nature. Thank you all so much for your incredible support and kind comments.

Cheers

I can't believe this scenery. It's going to be wonderful to fly in there. I got used to do the landings in Tipella using the standard FSX airport. Now I see THIS! And it's true it's a challenging airport.

I have to say...What a supprice it is.... In the most crowded and most quality minded area, in ORBx history!  Its a BIG acivement to try to make even, or be better, than the


other artists in that area.,. (i know, it isent a competition) ???


Congratulation with your, beautiful Creation..... PASSED+1, that would  be my homble opinion. :smile: 


Just a thourgt: if u could "trick" one or to ( those with a wheelchair or at least old) ORBx creators to do some SOUND also, Birds a such...???::) 


Best regards


Henrik

Looking great.  I have flown over this strip many times in RL, but never attempted a landing.  Now we just need a payware version of Chilliwack done as a base to fly there from! ...hint-hint  ::)
