Orbx Announce YRC Refuge Cove Seaplane Base Freeware


Orbx has recently announced on their forum what their newest freeware project will be: Refuge Cove Seaplane Base!

Refuge Cove is the main source of supply in Desolation Sound, located near the northwest end of the Strait of Georgia in British Columbia. It is considered by many to be the ultimate destination for cruising in the Pacific Northwest and serves as a convenient location for those coming or leaving from boats via a seaplane. The Cove is home to a number of boaters who spend one to two months a year in this area, with some having done this for 30 years or more.

In addition to Refuge Cove, a number of other locations are also modeled. These include Bliss Landing, Mink Island, Prideaux Haven, as well as Squirrel Cove and the remote Forbes Bay. Cortez Bay will also be arriving in a service pack at a later date.

Refuge Cove is now being tested and will be released when it’s ready.

That was all that was said for now but Larry did leave a healthy amount of screenshots to get acquainted with the airport and to hold you over until it releases. There are nearly 50 screenshots previewed, far too many to post on this article, so I’ll be including the first 10 and to see the rest, head over to their forum post!
