Recommended Posts

Today i was looking at my fsx box cover an i saw in one area that it should animals . But when i think about it i have never seen any animals in fsx yet . Am i the only one or have anyone seen animals in fsx ? If you have what part of the world did you see it? Also was it moving?

There is a safari mission where you see some elephants, as far as I remember.

They're definately in there. The mission mentioned above where you have to find a group of missing elephants which was one of my first experiences in FSX, there's another in the Acceleration Pack I believe where you fly a helicopter somewhere in Kenya and there's Giraffes, and there's the Hawaiian mission where at one point you go Whale spotting. You also see birds around thermals depending on your settings. I have no idea if they can be found outside of these missions since I've never revisited the areas, but my guess is no unless you have scenery which includes it.

It's really nothing special obviously, and I think they could actually have made better use of them what with full road traffic and boats, but as performance is tight enough already I think we should thank them for not simulating the animal kingdom lol.

Say that again i know FPS would have take a hit on performance . To be honest the only mission i did for fsx was the one you have to land in Area 51 . An another one in italy where you have to land in Rome i think . I have seen whale once flying at low altitude approaching for landing in Hawaii also birds around the airport but i always thought it was part of the payware scenery that i bought.

I thought I saw some jackalopes in between Salt Lake City and Wendover, NV. Have to fly real low to see them.

I see a small flock of birds fly over me parked at the gate in KSFO frequently. I use flightbeams SFO. Not use if it is because of flightbeams or not, but I have not seen anything anywhere else.

I'm still flying arouind hawaii and there are no birds. Don't get me wrong, I'm sort of glad there are no birds lol They'd also be a drag on my 4 year old 1 gig card ;)

 

Althougn it would be nice to see flocks take off as I fly over.

Yes, I saw a couple of eagles during a regular flight. I had screenies, but that HD is long gone. I don't recall where it was in the sim that I saw them but I definitely did see them.

That was a long time ago and have never replicated the sighting.

I have seen birds around a few airports, and the thing that always puzzles me about them is, given how far away they are, how big are these things?

I find plenty of animals in Orbx scenery, from birds to cows... I once had to go-around because there were a bunch of cows in a runway.

There are very few animals in the FSX default scenery.

 

You can add a variety of static animals with payware scenery from PacSim, for example (bush-flying).

 

Various moving animals are included in a scenery/mission addon for Africa (from Aerosoft).

 

And ORBX employs creature flow in their FTX products.

 

That bird flock effect is used by many addon airports developers.

In many addon sceneries, yes, as has been mentioned before. In standard FSX they are limited to missions, as far as I have found out, but there are quite a lot of them in various missions - elephants and giraffes in the African Ranger mission, whales in the San Juan Islands and Hawaii missions, birds on various occasions ect.
