Favorite FS2004 Bug.

Recommended Posts

This is not meant to be a flame post or a complaint department. This is light hearted in nature and lets keep it that way.What is your favorite FS2004 goof so far.I think I had three for FS20021. Prince Edward Island being non existant2. Banff Airport being at the bottom of a pit (and similar mesh goofs)3. The London goofs with the Millenium Eye and the Dome being swapped.What are this versions biggies.So far, I think the Rock of Gibralter missing (again) deserves mention, (in FS2002 there was at least a 'hump' (Pro Pilot 99 still has the best Gibraltar ever simmed)House in the middle of KTEX (I believe) runway.Any others?Remember this isn't for real complaints but just light hearted observations on how our "simulated" world differs from the one we live in (well, at least sleep in)....

I think my favourite one so far is that the transition altitude is 18,000ft everywhere in the world when using the ATCIf only it was, would make life a lot more easier ;)

It appears the air traffic control tower at Reagan/Washington National has been bulldozed. Can't find it anywhere.Non-controlled airport now perhaps?

Dont worry about Gibraltar so much. Ive seen some scenery coming out from Sim wings which will do that place some justice and if you dont want to spend that then just spend a few euros on the Lago Terramesh for Southspain as the Rock of Gibralter looks lovely in that too.Craig

ATC parked me at an exact spot at Tampa Intl. Then 5 minutes later it parked a great big jet right on top of me.Now there was a surprise !!!Bob (Lecanto, Fl)AMD, Athlon XP, 1800+MSI, K7T266 XP ProPC 2100 DDR, 1024 MBXP, Home Edition Elsa GLadiac 920, GF3/64Mb andPNY, Verto nVidia TNT 2-M64/32WD, 100 MB, 7200, Ultra 100Sound Blaster, Audigy MP3+CH Prod, VPP Yoke - Sound CardCH Prod, Pedals - Sound Card

Funny that you should mention ProPilot because they still had the best BUT THE BEST cloud simulation and I can not believe that the other flight simulator programs did not learn from them how clouds should look like without melting your CPU into the RAM and then offer you two scramble eggs with toast!My favourite FS2004 BUG is .......... that you can not ask or switch the runway lights on when visibility drops!! But I've been nagging about this since FS98 and I'm too tired to write about it again. For me, with

St Louis (and etc etc etc) with no bridges, but Pittsburg with 3 identical. 2 miles north of Kitty Hawk, US158 goes right under the bay...seems like the Wright's would have noticed that.

I agree with you about Pro Pilot 99 Clouds. With a Voodoo card they were amazing. Yes, once on top of them they flattened out, and underneath them they didn't have any shape until you were getting close, but that was the most effective cloud environment I have flown in, and It didn't eat up frames for breakfast.My biggest dissapointment for FS2004 are the vaulted clouds.Either you have a 1.5 GHz machine to even remotely get them to look and run right, or you are stuck in ugly 2D cloud hell. I would love if someone could remap the FS2002 Clouds back into FS2004 and save me the performance hit....If anyone can make a good looking sky on FS2004 and have it actually IMPROVE my performance, I will buy that product immediately.Now there's a piece of software I would buy!!!
