Seriously, the initial release is the islands of Kauai and Niihau will be uploaded to flight-sim.org in pieces. The Elevation Mesh for all the islands and specifically for Kauai and Niihau are already there waiting for you. The larger files for Images and Places are a second download for this afternoon, tonight, or early morning depending on where you are in the world.
Look for a documents folder in the downloads with a pdf file. You will find instructions and file recommended file structure there.
The main files have just finished uploading. Look for Hawaiian Islands: Kauai and Niihau
Total download is in the neighborhood of 1.8 GB for these two Islands. We will continue work on the overall package and announce the 2nd package very soon. This will either be Maui County (4 islands) or the Big Island of Hawaii.
As most of you already know, this is record breaking freeware with an emphasis on VR, but, still well-suited for those wishing they had VR. We have optimized this scenery to run smoothly on just about any PC system that will run Aerofly FS 2. We are introducing many new features and graphics like you have never seen in AFS2. You may experience some slight stutters, no matter how fast your system runs, and we are working with the experts to minimize these slight hesitations.
Due the the number of animated boats placed around the island we have made available a selection of 0% for those systems that will barely run AFS2, 25% or 50% for mid-range and some of the newer systems, and we have 100% for those heavy weight systems with the big new graphics cards. Make sure you have a fire extinguisher close by in case you hair catches fire.
