TerraModels

Recommended Posts

Hi all... Having just discovered that installing Jaguar updates the OpenGL drivers within MacOS 9.2.2, I can now run Fly! II without it being a slide show!So, I have VirtualPC, and have successfully created Terrascenery for Fly2k, now I would like to populate my barren Fly! II world with some of the airports I like to fly in and out of. The problem is that TerraModels tells me that it wants to access the Fly! II executable, which being a Mac user, I don't have.For those of you who have made TerraModels scenery under VirtualPC, how did you do it?---John R.

HI John,I don't have VPC but I do have a vague recollection from the Fly2K days that the guys with VPC picked up a PC copy of Fly and worked with that in their Windoze partition, then simply copied the resulting TM files to the Mac side.I suspect you can pick up a PC copy of II for cheap right now.

That's exactly what I used to do before I got a cheap old PC to render scenery. (That computer was damaged by water during our recent move, so I doubt whether I'll be using it again.)-Franklin------------------------------Franklin TesslerDP 800Fly! for Mac Co-moderator

ThanksWhen I set up FlyEdit for Fly2k under VPC, I was lucky enough that a clean install of the Mac version of Fly would work for the PC Editor program. All you had to do was make sure that the Mac never launched that install of Fly (something about it reformatting some databases making them unusable to the pc). I guess TerraModels needs to "hook" into the actual PC executable for Fly! II.Do either of you have any idea if I would be able to convert objects like taxiway signs (or an entire airport scenery file) made in TM2 down into a Fly2k compatible file?---John R.
