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

Hi Folks

oreo005 -
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
8 Semi-Submersibles

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.
