    OMSI Maps :: Hertfordshire V4 [RHD]

    You asked.. you got Like buttons added to the forums. @RD_1 I will not tolerate people talking to each other like they owe you something. This man has dedicated his free time to make something to give to you for free, let's keep that in mind shall we? This is NOT open for discussion either young Rhys

    OMSI Maps :: Hertfordshire V4 [RHD]

    The map is designed to be driven around, not looked at from a helicopter. Its provided "as is" and is a convert from OMSI1 days with gradual improvements being made. Its easy to say a full rebuild would be better, and it probably would, but remember is a free map, provided by me giving up my own free time when balancing a full time job and bringing up a family. If you don't like it that's fine, don't drive it.

    OZx v3.5 Upgrade

    Version 1.00


    OZx is proud to introduce OZx_AUS 3.5, our latest upgrade to the Australian virtual bush flying experience! This package includes over 18 new airstrips, a heliport, a 2016 listing of oilrigs and over 20 points of interest around Australia, from the harsh, sun burnt inland areas of Queensland and New South Wales, to the scattering of many Visual Reference Points (VRP) and airstrips around Sydney, South to Strahan in lush Tasmania, and right across to picturesque salt lakes in Western Australia. From small bush strips like Quilpie and Marulan to regional airports such as Bourke and Hay, this package will suit whatever your taste is! OZx 3.5 is the result of many hours of effort from our developers and testers. This package is a testimony to each of their efforts, and we all hope you enjoy this new scenery as much as we did creating it!   The OZx Team, July 2016 Installation Instructions 1. Download and run the two OZx_3.5 Installer files. The installer will find your FSX or P3D root folder automatically. (Note - Do not install in any sub folder.) 2. Ensure that “OZx_AUS” & “OZx_LIB” are enabled in the FSX Scenery Library and above FTX 3. Check the “OZx_Extras_Readme.pdf” file in your “Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\OZx\User_Docs” folder and install any items of interest. OZx_v3.5_Manual.pdf

    OMSI Maps :: Hertfordshire V4 [RHD]

    Gentlemen, Let's keep things civil if we can. This community is a broad church of ideas. Feedback is always welcome, but bear in mind that whether the author wishes to respond to it or adopt it is their own choice. Many of us old farts don't do too well with Feedback Loops. We weren't taught that way... One thing I feel I must reiterate is that most of us are doing this as a hobby, not for mercenary reasons. We have our own timeframes and motivations. Please be supportive of the efforts of others. Also, @RD_1 , I think you need to realise is that various members of this community are at different parts of their lives than you are and this is a whole different list of priorities. Whilst I leave this out this sort of thing usually, I for example have two children under 10 and a full time job, a marriage, and pathetically oldman style social life, which sounds a lot like @mrmoose @bear76 and many other folk on here. I can only suggest that at 20, I may have thought I had a lot going on, but strap yourself in as you have so much to look forward to - qualification, marriage, children and so on and so forth. Whilst it may not have been your intention, using words like "rectify, ridiculous and major concern" can seem inflammatory when it is your own project under the microscope. I haven't brought out the red ink here, I don't think I need to, this is old ground. Play nice gents.

    OZx YPKS Parkes NSW

    Version 1.0.0


    Parkes is a well serviced Airport that has an Aero Club, a Training School, aircraft maintenance business, and a refuelling agent, all operating on the airport grounds. Parkes most famous land mark is man made, the CSIRO Radio Telescope is located 25kms north of town on the Newell Highway. Parkes is also the home to the annual Elvis festival.

The OZx folder contents need to go into the OZx_Lib folder to ensure all objects are visible. Thanks to the beta testers - Bruce, Flukey, Gazza, TerribleT, Aussiman, and anyone else who I have forgotten who helped in this airport. Thanks also to soarfly concepts for the use of their airport lighting objects in this airport. Craig

    OMSI Maps :: Hertfordshire V4 [RHD]

    I cannot agree more with you @Chuckinho, I have thought for a very long time on this forum that peeps have absolutely no regard for what people produce for this community, nor the circumstances they endure in order to produce it. I think @RD_1 would do well to notice the fact that the map is freeware, and at no time were peeps charged to test a beta. Ok, That may be a bit below the belt, but for someone to come out and criticse a freeware map in that manner is no better. @RD_1 is producing a payware map, thats fine, let the peeps that want to pay for it do so, but I hope for his sake every single i is dotted and every single t is crossed otherwise there could well be people demanding their money back. He should also know that throwing out comments like that does nothing but make him look unprofessional. Just like @Chuckinho, I too have children. I have four of them (3 under 7), and am on my own with them, so whatever time I spend contributing to the Manly Map is well and truly done in my sleep time. Very few on this forum have any thought or any regard for others circumstances, when they start demanding things, or throw criticisms in buketloads. In my day, they were called 'gimme pigs' and unfortunately as far as i am concerned the term today has never had more meaning. @mrmoose Mate, awesome job you have done here. You have delivered again, just like you did before. It is up to you how much critique you take on board, but remember, you don't get paid for this.....

    I highly doubt that it'll matter by 2025, as Lotus will be old software (consider that OMSI 1 itself is a little over 5 years old). As for multi-platform support, I can see on the Lotus facebook page that you asked them on 5th October and were told by the developers that they are preparing multi-platform support. You've since asked the same question here countless times, and I'm really struggling to see what you are expecting us to say. As they have told you, they are going to support multiple platforms. There's no need to ask the same question again.

    OMSI Maps :: Hertfordshire V4 [RHD]

    I think you've totally disregarded anything that I have suggested. Yes, OMSI maps are intended to be mainly be driven on, but scenery is also important. Especially if you're driving through areas that have little to no scenery. You use the term 'freeware' which most OMSI Projects are, compare it to Cotterell, which too is freeware, there is a major difference in quality, taking into account that the map is fictional. Many of us hold down full time jobs/social life's/families with our projects so don't take this as a personal attack. I work full time myself. I simply suggested ways that I personally believe Hertfordshire can improve, the standard for UK maps has changed a lot from the OMSI 1 days owing to Cotterell. I think you personally should be more open to feedback and less open to everyone just agreeing with you. At the end of the day, you shouldn't put a map out there if you're not willing to hear the pros and cons of it. Dismissing it as 'if you don't like it, don't drive it' after I offered friendly advice is just ridiculous. But cool, I'll fly away with my 'helicopter' good day

    Varying Passenger Numbers Dependent on Times

    Yes and no. The amount of passengers on the bus is depending on the amount of passengers on the street. In the global file you can set the passenger density per timeslot. Keep in mind that the amount is also based on the amount of passengers that you allowed in the general settings. For example: If the pedestrian setting in the general setting is 100. [trafficdensity_passenger] 8.000 (the time of the day) 1.500 (Factor of the passengers on basis of the general settings) So, in this case, there will be 150 (1.5 x 100) pedestrians around. When you use a number below 1 (1.000 x 100 = 100) like 0.400 you have 40 pedestrians around. This way you have also influence on the amount of passengers that enter a bus. Of course the number of entering passengers is always depending on the values given in the max and min fields of the busstop cube. However, I have enough proof that Omsi not always works conform those figures. I hope this make sense.

    Fresh Install of P3D v3....

    Guys, it might be worth investing in a ghosting software and a 2nd or 3rd drive the same size or twice or 3 times ( I have 3 times) as your FS install. Before installing anything run a ghost then if something goes wrong you can just ghost the best install from the ghostdrive. in 10 years I have never had to do a reinstall from scratch

    Good Luck. OMSI 1 isn't a third of the game OMSI 2 is. Anyone who would make you a bus would probably do it for OMSI 2 if at all. Do you not own OMSI 2? If you have money to pay for a bus, I would suggest buying OMSI 2 Building a bus is a massive undertaking...

    This folder contains a repaint for the A2A Wings of Silver Lockheed L-049 Constellation. It shows L-1049 N6504C (c/n 4166) in the first colours of Seaboard & Western Airlines, an all-cargo company based in new York that started in 1946 with DC-4's, but in 1954 bought 9 L-1049 Constellations, of which N6504C was one. It was leased to BOAC for one year, in 1955, being painted in BOAC colors, but retaining its US registration. The aircraft traded hands several times with the last owner being North American Aircraft Trading and registered as 5T-TAC. In 1968 while being used in the Biafra Airlift the aircraft was destroyed in Nigeria. Repaint by Jan Kees Blom, based on the paintkit by A2A.

    Exactly. This stops here. We know that the Lotus developers have said "we are preparing multi-platform support", whether that will result in Lotus on Mac and Linux is not certain at this stage in development (and certain things may have been lost in translation). Until the developers say anything more, we are unable to be sure. Unfortunately, as discussion of this subject seems to be going in circles and irritating people, I will have to put an end to it for now. So until further notice, discussion of Lotus support for Mac and/or Linux must stop, as it falls under rule 10: "discussions about the price or way in which OMSI/Lotus is distributed".

    OMSI Maps :: Hertfordshire V4 [RHD]

    Hello. Been a while since I've posted on these forums properly, but here goes. This is a rant about various things regarding the map. You've done a nice job with converting it and adding on the St Albans part, but there are major issues with the map and some of your decisions. 1. Your decision to use the AI cars used in Bowdenham This is one of the biggest issues on the map. The cars in the AI pack used by Bowdenham are stupidly built, and they don't even look very good. They have ridiculously high polygon counts, higher than that of the standard AI cars, which in my opinion, look somewhat better. The same goes for the parked cars. 2. Your decision regarding the packaging of ALL used assets. This is a major issue for those who wish to use the map, and don't necessarily have great internet speeds. This was also a problem with uploading to the servers I believe. 3. Your decision to continue to use Freeman's road/asphalt object Using Freeman's objects is understandable, because there isn't a great deal of UK building assets available, but the use of Freeman's asphalt object is stupid. There are lighting issues with it, the nightmap is crap and it really doesn't look nice. 4. Issues regarding corrupted/modified/changed/wrong assets The Simple streets that you have included in your map override the original simple streets. This is stupid, because the assets you have included have incorrect/crap textures for the pavements/sidewalks. (Plain grey, they should have a detailed texture). This conflicts with other maps, because they also use the Simple Streets mod. 5. The fact there is part of a continuation to Stevenage on the map that hasn't been converted After roaming around, I found a continuation to Stevenage, however it was not complete nor converted. Perhaps this was unintended? Overall, there are many issues with the map. If these were corrected, the map would look/perform so much better. I, personally, am not a competent map creator, but I can assure you, these would make the appearance so much better. Thank you for your attention, Lowlander21
