BC Helicopters, Canada

Developed by Chris Britton | Designed for:
MSFS

Best known from the Pilot Yellow YouTube channel,  BC Helicopters is a flight school in British Columbia, Canada. BCH was also the first operator of and is now a dealer for Cabri helicopters in Canada.

This scenery has been designed from the ground up, in detail from various video and aerial sources. It has been made in collaboration with HCG, who has released a freeware Guimbal Cabri G2 alongside this scenery.

BC Helicopters – Change Log

October 22, 2022 | v1.2.1
Note: After World Update: Canada, BCH is no longer compatible with CYXX Abbotsford by Ryanosaurus13, due to old terraforming present in the scenery.
  • Fixed Windsock sometimes snapping to half-mast (hopefully).
  • Reworked TIN exclude to remove a larger area of Photogrammetry.
 
October 3, 2022 | v1.2.0
  • Added a few missing rows of grapevines.
  • Adjusted rotation of grapevines and bush crops to better follow rows and elevation changes (More tweaking will be needed, but the worst of it is fixed for now).
  • Fixed elevation issues caused by new DEM introduced in World Update Canada.
  • Moved runway location to prevent unwanted terraforming changes in grapevine field.
  • Improved BC Helicopters building model: Merged some model parts to reduce drawcalls, removed duplicate vertices, exported all textures as 16-bit, generated LODs, reduced LOD texture memory, added collisions.
 
July 16, 2022 | v1.1.0
  • Added additional clutter and lighting around the construction supply yard.
  • Added additional clutter around the general area.
  • Added improved roads surrounding BC Helicopters.
  • Added environmentally-dynamic water puddles.
  • Changed parking spots to Dock_GA to avoid AI spawning.
  • Excluded a stray light orb near the construction supply yard.
  • Fine-tuned windsock elevation.
  • Improved BC Helicopters Building: Fixed gutter shading issues, fixed gutter downspout clipping into edge trim, added new light above main door, improvements to PBR textures, fixed spotlight UV unwrap, & decreased emissive resolution to reduce memory usage.
  • Removed falsely-detected buildings from the construction supply yard and general area.
  • Roof turbine vents now dynamically animate based on local wind speed.
