We are flying from Karamea to Niels beach

Here we are just leaving Karamea

Down the coast toward Westport you have Granity and Stockton Mine and Waimangaroa

And here we have Westport

From here we fly inland to Inangahua Junction
Image

From there we go south to Reefton
This pic is from Reefton looking North back towards Inangahua

Then on to the Grey Valley where we are looking South from Ikamatua
Image

Back out to the Coast we have Greymouth and Cobdon

This is Gladstone and we are looking north to Greymouth
Image

Here we are down at Hokatika
Image

From here we turn inland over Kokatahi just east of Hokitika
Image

On to Lake Brunner
Image

Kapitea Reservoir
Image

Then down to Lake Kaniere

From Lake Kaniere we head south again passing the small town Ross
Image

Then we have HariHari

Following the road South we come to Whataroa and Lake Wahapo
Image

And on to Franz Joseph Glacier and Franz Joseph Airfield

Can't beat a good photoreal, especially if you know the area. I don't know the west coast but I feel I soon will!

Nice autogen too :clap:

Great work, Doug and co. :clap:

Just to clarify, does this combined release have more coverage than the individual West Coast Towns releases? It looks like it has a LOT more.

I love flying those individual areas, although the West Coast's somewhere I haven't been in real life yet, save for a hour-long stop in Greymouth at the end of the TranzAlpine a few years ago.

Hi Adrian
Yes it is continuous photo scenery for about 430Km from Karamea in the north down to Lake Paringa from there a small break of about 30Km with no photo scenery down to just north of the Haast and then there is photo scenery to Neils Beach at Jackson Bay

is there anywhere OTHER than Flightsim.com that this is available?
I am downloading Hokitika fro Avsim and get anywhere between 350-900 kb/s but from flightsim.com I can only get
about 49kb/s even trying on different days and at different times. ( makes for a 12-14 hour download).
cheers

Yes, I am finding the same. 12hrs and it fails about halfway through downloading. Have tried three times with no success. Sadly have given up trying now. A pity because it is a great scenery.
