Nostalgia

Recommended Posts

I reprocessed a video I made about 5 years ago...It is the first I have done in Windows 10 and Video Enhancer 2.

I rather enjoy watching how my old airport used to be and also the rather hair raising Whale Watching!

I have never seen anything like that before!  I it an FSX "easter egg"?   I guess you have aircraft damage off!!

 

And just which airport is it?

Wow Peter!

What a treat, just like watching a David Attenborough documentary, great capture.

 

EDIT: By the way, am I right in saying this is FS2004/FS9? It just goes to show what a fantastic sim that was!

No it is FS9 with Damage ON and the Airfield is McLeland Field... which, sadly, is looking a bit desolated in P3D:(

 

BTW...I built the airport myself over several years and many people used it...I placed the two pods of whales with seagulls over them in Russell Fiord.

How did you do the whales? I would like to put something like that into my FSX install.

JG...I have no idea how you do it in FSX but for FS9 you could download a package for Seagulls and another for Whales. They are scenery packages and you apply them like scenery...For the whales you just need an accurate lat and long and for the seagulls I seem to remember that you built the swarm by adding the flock one by one and they required a height as well for each bird but just one lat and long for the flock. The result is a .bgl file that you include in a scenery file that is local to those lat and longs that you specified.

 

You might try searching for Seagull Scenery for FSX and Whale Scenery for FSX...Something might crop up.

You were lucky to get out of that encounter with an undamaged aircraft. Having seen real Humpbacks breaching and mating at sea I can tell you that they make one hell of a splash and the shockwave even made our 27'000 ton ship vibrate! Nicely done.
