Are the old FS9 Georender sceneries (1 - 6) gone forever?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

some years ago I've purchased all the georender sceneries (Rangers creek, Flying M, Darringtin, Forks, Strom, Sultan, Orcas Island and so) on simmarket and enjoyed it very much.

Then there came FSX with all it's new possibilitys and it's squirks.

 

Today I like to go back to the good old stuff and it's very special and detailled touch. I bought the Georender Scenery Collection and Emma Field on cd. But I'm missing all the other stuff. Simmarket can't provide me the old files, ther're no cds to buy. And I don't want to download the filles illegally.

 

So guys - is there any place or person to provide me with the georender sceneries? I would pay the orignal price for these pieces. Can't accept it's gone forever in my FS9 installation.

 

Thanks a lot in advance!

 

Denis

If you bought the sceneries already, how can there be a problem? You mean you don't keep backups of stuff you purchased?

Even though Lago (the original distributor) no longer exists, it is still possible to install these sceneries (I've done it a few times with new PC installations).

I agree, something is not adding up.,,

Yep, looks like it was pulled from Simmarket all together and the GeoRender site has been taken down. Also found a post from Francois that Goldstein left the business and didn't want the stuff sold anymore from FSAddon. However, i did find a link where some of its being sold still. Not sure if these are the ones you are missing, but its worth a look,

Some people don't make backups - fact.

 

You say it is still possible to install these sceneries but you don't give any link(s). You're not thinking of torrent sites are you?

I think he was saying that you could still INSTALL them , (or re-install them), if you already have them. (ie You had purchased them in the past, and saved them / backed them up)

 

There was no suggestion of Torrents -- The OP clearly stated he was looking for the rest of the Scenery set, that he did not have, and wanted to obtain/purchase them legally.

Guys,

 

I've bought them a long time ago at simmarket but I don't have any backups or s.th. else. Besides Georender Scenery Collection DVD (just few of the georender sceneries) you can't buy them any more.

Yes, you're right: I don't want to download them illegaly. I'll try to contact the guys who created or published the pieces.

 

Just wanted to ask if anybody had success getting them legally the last years?

Hello:

 

The LAGO installers were stated in the manuals to be freely and legally re-distributable by end users. :Idea:

 

However one must have the LAGO-type serial / key code e-mailed to buyers after purchases of those packages direct from LAGO Online, or via simMarket ...in order to use those installers.

 

You should be able to both receive a confirming copy of your serial code, and IIRC, also re-download the installers via a link supplied from simMarket ...if you inquire about this via e-mail.

 

 

As to acquiring confirmation of serial / key codes and/or installer files for other previously purchased packages in the FS-Addon "New World" Georender series, AFAIK, they should also be available via a link supplied from FS-Addon ...if you inquire about this via e-mail.

 

 

BTW: if FS-Addon for some reason no longer has the installers available, just get your serial from Francois, and you can get the installer elsewhere, as the installer works similar to the LAGO installer: you must have a serial / key code in order to complete the installation.

 

So, if you have your serial / key code for the LAGO installers on hand, anyone can send you the installer files, or post them on ex: MediaFire, DropBox etc. so you can once again enjoy those sceneries.

 

 

Remember as well, that there were several subsequent FS2004 Georender packages which Richard Goldstein sold via his own website for a few years before the closed his web site down; I am not certain if Richard can still be reached to provide ongoing service for such purhased packages.

 

 

AFAIK, the only remaining Georender packages available for purchase are old "overstock" CDs left in warehouses such as may exist in the holdings of FlightStore, JustFlight, PC-Aviator etc..

 

 

Hope this helps ! B)

Boy that rattles the ol' noggin. If I remember correctly there were six Geo releases plus Emma Field for a total of 10 airports but I'm just going off my old and dusty FS2004 backup hard disk. They were superb for their day (maybe still are).

 

One of my favorites was Bryce Canyon out in Utah. Just felt so alone and out there like one could the wind howling in the distance. I even installed it into my P3D a ways back. Threw some hires photoscenery under it... a few little quirks but looked great, good enough to fly into.

 

ah.... when times were simpler, ha! :wink:

 

let's see:

 

airport - Georender 1 - USA, Oregon, Yamhill, Flying M Ranch (OR05) & WA, Ranger Creek (21W)

airport - Georender 2 - USA, Utah, Escalante (1L7)

airport - Georender 3 - USA, Washington, Sequm, Diamond Point (2WA1)

airport - Georender 4 - USA, Washington, Darrington Muni (1S2)

airport - Georender 5 - USA, Washington, Forks (S18)

airport - Georender 6 - USA, Washington, Morton, Strom (39P)

airport - Georender 7 - USA, Washington, Skykomish (S88)

airport - Georender 7 - USA, Washington, Sultan, Sky Harbor (S86)

airport - Georender 7 - USA, Washington, Wenatchee (27W)

airport - Georender 8 - USA. Washington, Orcas Island (KORS)

airport - Georender 9 - USA, Washington, Chelan Muni (S10)

airport - Georender 10 - USA, Washington, Seattle, Emma Field (KEWL) (honorary Geo member)

LAGO - Emma Field for FS2004

 

FYI: "EMMA_Patch_2004_100.zip" was a 'free' update to FS2004 version for Emma Field - FS2002 owners which required the serial / key code from Emma Field - FS2002 (e-mailed after purchase by LAGO or simMarket) -to install completely. This was not a 'patch', but actually a COMPLETE install of Emma Field FS2004 (...which replaced one's FS2002 version entirely). :wink:

PS: To "archive" a copy of the above linked web pages for personal use (only) on one's own computer:

 

FireFox Menu > File > Save Page As > Save As Type: "Web Page , Complete (*.htm; *.html)"

 

MS Internet Explorer Menu > Page > Save As > Save As Type: > "Webpage, Complete *.htm(*.htm; *.html)"

 

 

NOTE: If a archived web page opened in one's default web browser is covered up by a black area

 

<Ex: Forum web pages archived from "Community Forum Software by IP.Board" >

 

FireFox:

 

a.) FireFox Menu > Tools > Options > Content > 'un-check' "Enable Javascript"; click "OK"

 

b.) Web Page should now be fully visible on "off-line" mode after refreshing that page via the < F5 > key

 

 

If the web page opens in MS Internet Explorer (aka "MSIE"), IIRC, 'disable' "Active Scripting" in Security settings (to disable Javascript) would be the equivalent to the procedure used for FireFox.

 

MSIE:

 

a.) MSIE Menu > Tools > Internet Options > Security Tab > "Custom" Button > Settings > Scripting > disable "Active Scripting"; click "OK"

 

b.) Web Page should now be fully visible in "off-line" mode after refreshing that page via the < F5 > key

 

 

Hope this contributes some enjoyable FS nostalgia, and inspires more happy flying for all who read this ! B)
