FSX Easter Egg Found!--May Contain Spoilers

Recommended Posts

Credit goes out to Cessna154's video on YouTube.To find this easter egg, start up the Denali Base Camp Charter Mission. Follow the mission as normal. Once you takeoff from Base Camp, you will get a radio transmission asking you if you are up to a rescue. Accept the challenge, then go and rescue the hurt climber. Here is where things get different... The GPS and the Mission Compass/Pointer will direct you back to Talkeetna Airport-DO NOT GO THERE JUST YET. Head towards it, then hit the NRST button on the GPS when you're a few miles out. Activate the cursor, and move it over airport ID 3AK3. Follow the course line and land at 3AK3 airport. Taxi to the end of the runway. Notice there are 4 or 5 static planes parked by the end. Set the camera up so that you are looking at them. I do this in a few different views so as to make sure I have done it right. Then, takeoff from 3AK3, circle, and land there again, and I believe you may want to look at the static planes again. Then takeoff and head back to Talkeetna---PATK---as normal.Bingo! When you land and complete the mission, there is a 3rd reward that to some seems impossible to get otherwise. For now, I just won't say so as to keep the surprise...Enjoy!BoeingGuy

I'm selling carbon credits to offset your flight hours, if anyone is interested in cleansing their conscience.

It was a total fluke finding them......ya see...Me and Al was looking out the window in his jet, discussing how to lower the emissions on his 4 engine jet....then I looked down and....ahhhh nm, its a boring story :-)

Wow, I never new about the iceberg! Could you tell me how to get there?Also, oil rigs and icebergs are just part of the scenery, but they are pretty cool to come across!Not to be a pompous guy, but anyone tried out my egg yet?

I only saw it once, we were on a flight down the Norway coast then across to Greenland. Its somewhere between them but its probably drifted south and melted by now :-)

>Wow, I never new about the iceberg! Could you tell me how to>get there?There is an iceberg autogen item in the scenery files so icebergs may be more widespread than we think. ?? I have not done much flying up that way to see.Then again it could be a mission-only item??RhettAMD 3700+ (@2585 mhz), eVGA 7800GT 256 (Guru3D 93.71), ASUS A8N-E, PC Power 510 SLI, 2gb Corsair XMS 3-3-3-8 (1T), WD 150 gig 10000rpm Raptor, WD 250gig 7200rpm SATA2, Seagate 120gb 5400 rpm external HD, CoolerMaster Praetorian

I was wondering how long it would take someone to find that, unless they were tipped off.

>icebergs may be more widespread than we think. ??Yes they are! There are just under 100 placed (not autogen) icebergs around Greenland.Jeff

Yes sir! Now that is a true Egg! Thanks!You wouldn't believe how quick I was to backup my grantedrewards.bin file!I only did the land/circle back, but didn't land again... I forgot )-: However I did have an interesting "smoke trail" enroute to PATK.(Btw we need to be very shhhhh about this because if Phil Taylor sees it he might be like, "Remove that reward or or or!").Rob O.

>Which would be the closest airport to one?There is not one very close by, but you can start from Kulusuk (BGKK).From there you can either head:- 31 km east-ish to N65 36.98, W36 28.51or- 40 km southwest-ish to N65 19.98, W37 46.57Then whichever one you start are, there is a line of them roughly in a northeast-southwest direction, paralleling the coastline. They are spaced quite a bit apart, so you'll still need to search for them. Fly at about 3500-4000 ft to give yourself a better chance.Hope this helps all you iceberg spotters without giving too much away and so spoiling the hunt!Jeff

:-lolStarboard is when you look at the ship from the front and look at its right. So that means, while moving forward, turn left.

Yes I was... but in Navy-speak "stand by for heavy rolls" cause I am sure your going to take incoming for this. :-DP.C. = "politically correct"Ok ok ok ok... if you're on the Bridge... the Berg is on your right/starboard... so wouldn't one want to turn hard to port(left)?Like I said, I just rode on 'em and let the Navy do the driving :-DDD.Rob O.

:-lol :-lol :-lolIf you watched the movie Titanic, you'll notice that when the berg was on the right, he moved the wheel to the left on the order "Hard a starboard!"But I saw some diagrams suggesting you probably are correct, and I am confused.Well like you said, I'll just let the navy do the drivin', :-lol

Ah Ha! No wonder they tore the whole side of the ship off!Or maybe with their "reverse thrusters" there was some hope of just "kissing" it and spinning around one side of it.Or maybe the actor/helmsman or the O.I.C. who gave the order was a bit tipsy and did such a convincing job of steering/giving the order that the director decided to "cut it and print it". Alot of possiblities here.Rob O.

Hi FolksBoeingGuy -Great Ozzie was correct.Starboard or Port do not change with POV.Starboard is always the right hand side of the vessel, (or A/C).Port is always the LHS.The sides are defined from stern to stem, (bow).On modern ships,turning the wheel to the left, (anticlockwise),turns the ship to the left, (Port).In the movie,do they genuinely say "Hard-a-starboard!" ?If they do,I'm gobsmacked that noone has added it as a gaffe to IMDB.ATBPaulResized logo pending ;-)http://www.fs-odg.com
