Oil Platforms in P3DV5

Recommended Posts

I'm seeing giant (off-seas) oil platforms in some fairly unrealistic places in P3DV5. Can anyone confirm? I did a flight into KSDF (default scenery not FSDT) and there was an oil platform on short final to RW17R that was basically in the flight path of the approach. Seems a little bit far inland! Anyone know if there's a BGL file that can be disabled to remove them? Clearly this is from the updated vector data. I've also seen some in Lake Ponchartrain near KMSY. There are some platforms out there but they are not the size the platforms represented in P3DV5 (those would be more representative of something out in the Gulf of Mexico).
