    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. Approximately 32,000 passengers pass through Parkes Airport each year Installation: Extract the Parkes airport folder to your addon scenery folder and activate in FSX. 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

    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.

    Version 1.0.0


    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.

    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.

    The Citybus 400 Regional (Enviro 400) is available over at Fellowsfilm. Idk if they have plans to upload it here, too, but I noticed nobody has mentioned it here so thought I'd give a heads up. The C400 is a single-door, right hand drive decker based on an Enviro 400 (it's a spin off from the London DLC so trademarked branding's been removed).

    YSBK - Bankstown (Moving closer)

    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.

    OMSI Maps :: Hertfordshire V4 [RHD]

    I'd like to express my great thanks to @MMoose as Hertfordshire, in particular Welwyn Garden City, is my favorite area in real life although I don't live in the UK, and this map is one of the reasons why I decided to get a new computer that runs OMSI and hence my return to the gaming community since the MM2 era! I might do a few mods to the map in future if I have the time and, of course, if @MMoose doesn't mind. I was actually going to update the renown for this map but sadly I didn't have the time to do so. Still miss the old days when 300/301 were run by Sovereign using the Renowns which were much more comfortable and enjoyable to ride on IMO!

    OMSI Maps :: Hertfordshire V4 [RHD]

    Yes, i know that fact from Vlietburg. I think i know the reason for that. It happens when you changed the object into an other object. Sometimes that happens to me. I have a object (the busstopcube) still active, and then want to place a new object but forget that the busstop is still selected so the moment i click on the new one the cube is changed into something els. The moment i see my mistake i change it back it but has lost all functions by then. It's the way the criticism is given and more important; the hidden message behind the criticism, if you know what i mean. In that case you have to adjust the docking distance... but yes, Busstops that are to close to each other have effects on the pax at the stop.
