Help needed by newbie to FS2004. I have had this flight sim. for a while and have been generally pleased with the performance until now. Yesterday I decided to create a flight that would take me up the river Thames through London. The buildings are all there but no river! I know I'm in the right place because of the various boats and ships parked in the default scenery. Everywhere else I've flown including around Manhattan has been faultless. Is this a known bug in the program? The system I'm running on is P4 3.2GHZ, 1 gig ram, 128mb ATI Radeon 9700 graphics card and Direct X 9.0b. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Clean out your old video drivers and load the latest ones. You also need the latest DirectX 9.0c.
See if that helps.
Thanks for that. I'll give it a go. It just seems strange that all other games software including some that are quite demanding system-wise run without a hitch.
Didn't you hear? The River Thames was sold to American investors, and moved to a location near Las Vegas, Nevada, in the US, so that it once again flows under London Bridge.
Sorry, I couldn't resist.
I know that the MS update covered missing bridges,but the Thames is dry !
Let us know how you get on
Well, I just took off from London City Airport in FS09, and the Thames is in fact still flowing through London. So I'd say no, it's not an issue with FS, it's your system.
