    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.

    Version 1.00

    2,287 downloads

    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

    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.

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.

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

    ANZAC Day

    While we prep our uniforms/suits or iron our shirts for tomorrow/today Remember one thing, yes we Australia didint win World War 1 or World War 2 Unlike some countries who wear that on t shirts or rave about how much they contributed because of the number of material and men One thing is for certain the United States and the English have nothing compared to the Australian serviceman Fact: in World War 1 Australians where the first country to stop a major German advance in France and with the aid of the Kiwis gained and held more terrain that was harder than any other nation against the Turkish on their home soil. Australia was the only country who was able to sail through the Dardanelles where countless British battleships failed and sunk. We where the only country who was able to take a fortified town by a cavalry charge Fact: in World War 2 Australia was the first country again to stop and hold out against a German advance even Rommel said he wished he had soldiers like Australians and kiwis. Because of the Rats of Tobruk, Rommel wasted countless men and resources trying to push them out and it allowed the KIWIS to flank and cause horrific casualties on the German Desert Coprs who to date never tasted defeat this act of defiance allowed the British 8th army to move forward Fact: Australia was again the first country to stop a major Japanese advance, forcing them to withdraw. PNG wasn't achieved by regular soldiers but rather part time reservists who was know as Chocos, these were truck drivers and storeman and other POGs who held out on some of the most horrible terrain known to man until reinforced by full time Australian units Fact: more bombs fell on Darwin than Pearl harbour Australia was bombed the most by the Japanese however we cant compare ourselfs to places like london and malta and russia however all you hear about is pearl, Darwin wasnt a base it was a town, was main post office in Honolulu wast bombed or schools or good old bobs farm? So while the Brits, Americans and the Russians call themselves the victors of both world war, yes that may hold a lot of weight in the argument Remember Australia pulled off more firsts than the 3 superpowers, sometimes with the aid of our mates the kiwis You don't need all the technology or manpower because Australians have proved that you just need heart and mate ship and you will defy the odds The funny thing about Australian Servicemen and Women, We dont fight to win! we fight for the guy next to us and the chance to stick it up the opposing side. Thats what Australians are known as top fighters and piss takers There's Countries made of 10000000000s of ants and theres Countries consisting of a few honey badgers But either way conscripts or not, we as a small nation compared to others including the superpowers achieved some unbelievable feats that they failed to achieve... You can train for forces for, but you cant train them like an Australians, we are one of kind military Whether you approve of war or not, its not a day to glorify it, its to think and be grateful for the acts of many

    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

    What are you working on?

    Today I began a new project pack of repaints. Breng Arhnem/Nijmegen (dutch cities). This pack will include the breng and Brengdirect MAN Lion's city bus, The CNG citaro Facelift (the CNG tank from morphi is not the same as what they have for real unfortunately but close enough. ) The Citaro Facelift G (half real repaint). The facelift G does not have a CNG tank. Yes I know of the mod from Finlay but that has a lot of problems with repaints which I have tried and failed to get it working and the Citaro G from Alterrr.

    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".

    his folder contains a repaint for version 3 of the Douglas C-47 by Manfred Jahn and colleagues in the colors of C-47 N21769 of Wien Alaska Airlines, as it looked in the late '40's. Originally c/n 25634 was a R4D-6, which was bought by Wien Alaska Airlines in 1946 for flights from Fairbanks. It flew with at least until 1964, when it made an emergency landing in Point Barrow. It later saw service with Aero Retardent Inc. as N777DG, Pacific Galactic as N777PG and finally with Woods Air Service as N777YA before being sold to Bush Air Cargo, its present owner. I painted this version earlier. It is still flying in Alaska. Repaint by Jan Kees Blom for Manfred Jahn's C-47 version 3, based on the paintkit by Gman5250.

    This is one of the largest scenery undertakings in the OzX history. A massive well done flukey. This has been a huge challenge and one that you have been able to complete and blow people away with. Congrats mate, the entire Global FS community will thank you for this. Its much better than half the payware that is out there available on the market.. Good to see Australian Scenery design is still rolling strong. With yourself and all the Ozx Developers Australia is still one of the best places in the world to fly, with plenty of destination and diversity in scenery to check out. We are the lucky country.. Go Aussie X, you are showing the world what can be achieved.
