Can anyone give me the cordinates of the default oil platform in flight sim (shown in senery in the help section)? Because I'm following the derections and I can't find it
Have you tried these directions?
oh... never saw that. I'll try it.
Oil rig near Corpus Christi, Texas (KCRP)
Position aircraft: N 27* 43.65
---------------------W 97* 15.67. Altitude 500', Heading 082.
Truax VOR/DME: 030 degree radial, 3 DME
The MSFS default rigs are poor quality, totally fictional, & unrealistic macros.
For a far more realistic experience,
including turbulence on approaching the larger helipads,
The ODG - USAEZ GoM Demo contains real-world positioned models for -
9 Fixed-installation platforms.
8 Jack-Up platforms
See the info and dowload link at - ODG - USAEZ GoM Demo
Also see The ODG project
If you wish to stick with the FS2004 MSFS Default rigs -
I don't know if this is all of them, as I'm not on FS2004.
