The North Arkansas:
The route is basically ready.
The activity testing is still going on. This portion has caused some delays. Side benefits of the delay will be improved eng/wag files, and possibly some new/different/modified engine sound files.
This current batch of activities seems to be a bit too tough "as is" for the typical end user. Instead of making them easier, I am leaning toward writing a batch of simpler activities to be included with the initial release. I will then package this current batch of activities up and release them as an additional Activity Pack for "Advanced" users. All told, both Activity Packs will yield about 26 activities for the North Arkansas for starters. Think that ought to hold 'ya fer a spell???
The "Next One":
Remember me asking you to NOT hold my feet to the fire on the Ft. Smith Sub idea? Well, sure enough, now that sanity is returning, I'm having second thoughts on it due to a variety of reasons. Perhaps I will build the FS Sub "someday", but not too likely for the "next one".
Fear not though, I have all sorts of routes that I've known and loved... one just might make it into the light of day! Here's a pic of another being considered (note: raw route, default track/textures and roughed terrain only):
