frozen lakes?

Sam Intel Guest

In FS2004 I did not notice frozen lakes. Do they freeze so you can land on them? If they do not is there an addon that I can get that will make them freeze? Question

Sorry, no frozen lakes that i know of. I live near the finger lakes in New York and fly around there often. No ice i'm afraid, the waves are still rolling up on shore.

I don't think it's possible to land on ice in FS09. I did a flight trying to reach the North Pole several months ago, on the return I tried landing on the polar ice. It's not like dry land-- as you descend, eventually you can't go any lower, but it's like your wheels aren't touching anything-- you can't brake or slow down. Eventually I gave up and took off again.

Try this. It should work. He said that you can land on his lake, try it with a small aircraft and let us know.

*************
1. Extract the zip into your main FS2004 Addon Scenery folder, or into a temporary folder, and then move it there, which ever method you prefer.
I use the temp and drag and drop.

2. Start up FS2004 and when the welcome screen, or initial menu comes on, select settings, then click on Scenery Library, and Add Area. Find the Addon Scenery folder and open it, then find the XXXX folder and click on it. The name XXXX should now appear in the title window, then click OK. Then you will see XXXX at the top of your scenery library list, and click the OK tab at the bottom.

3. That's it! You must first exit FS2004, and when you restart it your scenery will be there. It is not necessary to use the Addon Scenery option to locate this scenery, simply go to the airport in FS.

I tried to go to the airport, but I could not find it. What is the airport ID?

You should download the de Havilland "British Antarctic Survey" DHC6-300 Twin Otter that has special skies (aswell as wheels) which is specifically meant for landing on ice. It is the 2nd one down on this page: www.simviation.com/fs2004props15.htm

Then, take some flights from the Antartic Resarch Base airports such as NZIR which I know for sure has a Ice Runway and is serviced by the RNZAF Hercules

Would be interested in knowing how much 'runway' y'all would need before you come to a stop when landing on ice... Think
I'd recommend trying a big, BIG lake the first time you try it Wink
