Is Hoover Dam in the default FS2004?

Recommended Posts

I drove there from Vegas last weekend, and I'm trying to fly there today. Found a few lakes ESE of Vegas but don't see specific dam detail. I may have found Lake Mead, but no dam. Should it be visible without an addon, or do I need to enhance 2004 to get this type of detail?

Also you might like to try adjusting the sliders to higher values, some stuff disappears when the sliders are set to lower values.Best and Warm RegardsAdrian Wainer

My Google search sends me to FSInsider for the 2004 update, but everything there references FSX. Is there another site I can go to get the latest update for FS9?

Try flying the default Cessna around those lakes and you should find it. Look for a river eminating from the large lake (Lake Meade) The dam is not that large from the air (depends on altitude) and is rather hard to spot at first.If you still can't find it, let me know and I can post the coordinates and then you can slew to the dam.

I believe if you fly ILS 25R you will see it off your left wingtip as you are being vectored to the localizer.John M That's ILS 25R at KLAS
