Chile..Chile...and more Chile.....

Recommended Posts

I have to say I am completely dissappointed with the idea of a Chilean lighthouse pack. Having followed the link posted, I found all those lighthouses to be totally unworthy of my FSX addon scenery...What is it with Chilean lighthouses.. they are all short and stubby! Is it some complex amongst Chilean lighthouse designers?What we ( I ) need is the complete province of Amazonas in northern Peru modeled, including all towns and clandestine airstrips. Closely followed by a bird pack ( thanks David R in Jerusalem for the others ) of Manu park ( with 10% of all worlds bird species ).If there are any Chileans reading this.. curiosity.. does Pisco ( alcoholic "grappa" like drink ) come from Chile? Potatoes?Paul

I don't get the joke. The pronunciation of a country's name is different from English to Spanish, as the vowels are said differently.It is Chee-lay if you speak spanish. So, is it a "joke" that some folks speak spanish?

And it would be nice if somebody would do a Baloon observer mission in FSX for the Battle of Angamoshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naval_Battle_of_Angamoshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hu%C3%A1scar_%28ship%29http://www.oz.net/~markhow/pre-dred/huascar.htmhttp://www.armada.cl/arm_tradicion_hist/si...0514115739.htmlhttp://www.armada.cl/site/unidades_navales/163.htmhttp://www.armada.cl/p4_ingles/site/edic/base/port/home.htmlAnd this Icebreaker would be usefull in support of Antarctic exploration in FS2004/FSXContraalmirante Oscar Viel Torohttp://www.armada.cl/site/unidades_navales/539.htmBest and Warm RegardsAdrian Wainer

Pisco comes from Chile and Peru. It is quite good. And if you make a Pisco Sour, you HAVE to use the egg white.

Interesting Chilean Navy facts:Their Oberon class subs had longer conning towers to cope with tremendous wave size off the Chilean coast.The Chilean Navy had one of the last all-gun cruisers in the world in service, a ship named O'Higgins, which was an ex-US Cleveland class I believe.The had another gun cruiser named Almirante Grau, although it had been modified to carry helicopters, and if I remember correctly, a few missiles, too.Chile is a neat country to fly in, in FS. It has everything--misty cool coastlines, hot deserts, gigantic mountains, and everything in-between.Flying the length of that country is the only way to really appreciate how looooong Chile is.RhettAMD 3700+ (@2310 mhz), eVGA 7800GT 256 (Guru3D 93.71), ASUS A8N-E, PC Power 510 SLI, 2 GB Corsair XMS 2.5-3-3-8 (1T), WD 250 gig 7200 rpm SATA2, CoolerMaster Praetorian case

Hi Adrian,It's funny I've never been to Colca.. but a friend of mine came to visit, looking for adventure, so I sent him off to hike the Cotahuasi canyon.. I sent the poor chap off with a tent etc., some food and I lent him a small handgun "just in case". That rather rattled him... he stayed out there about 5 days then lost his nerve.It really is big and bad out there alone. Cotahuasi is deeper than Colca ( as your article mentions )with the walls climbing 3500m ( 11500ft ).I think I might try flying it in FSX.Cheers,Paul

No, that's not the problem- People can speak whatever they want- but in the very nature of this thread, some people are hyper-sensitive and a little too uptight. I am American, and it was always pronounced 'Chill-E'. They for some reason had to 'correct' us as if we were doing something wrong- I would not expect a non-native English speaker to pronounce American states/cities with an American accent would I?I think Americans like myself are just not Politically correct enough to get angry at something humorous- there was no harm in the original statement, yet people get angry. I don't care if people call me a redneck or yankee or anything else. Contrary to popular belief the large majority of Americans are not 'world police' and don't want to change other cultures to conform to their own. If the Chinese want to eat dogs that's their choice- Americans don't eat dogs, but according to alot of the porn I've seen lately they have no problem fornicating with them. My dog can't hunt, stinks as a guard dog, and is neutered- so he's 0 for 3- Maybe the Chinese would want him? :)

CAN YOU BELIEVE THE CHILE MONSTER IS BACK AGAIN?Wow.....Chile is back on the front page again. I'll bet if you lined up all the files for FSX Chile, it might be as big a Chile itself!
