Heathrow

Recommended Posts

Heathrow UK is on a field/trees/town. Obviously they got somethig wrong. But how I add taxiway, because there is none.Only buildings, and runways. Just need to add taxiway (unles it is there but mysteriously not showing).Bit annoying how they seemed to bodge up my home country.

Cheers, that was good help. Found some stuff for heathrow and gatwick :) Just what I needed, cheers.And yes I am new, this is some serious flight sim :( All i had to prepare me for this was about 10 goes on MSFS (over a period of about 5 years) and Flight Unlimited II (which don't work with nVidia, so got Fly! II).Only downside to this sim, is lack of AI :( Do you really think you'd be the only aircraft at San Fransisco Intl. ?

Ah ah. I have build .230, and it came with Biber's models, but I do not have Terramodels Scenery packs.. that I know of... installed. Where may I find them?Unless you mean the Scenery CD that came with the game (had Paris, Washington, etc... on it)

If you are going to download a lot of scenery, you`ll need both TM21_256.pod (or TM21_128.pod for 128x128 textures), and Biberall.pod in your Fly2/Scenery/Shared folder. They are best found in the library by searching for the "filename".zip...Also check your fly.ini, and see that searchpodfilesfirst=0.Regarding scenery I only use podded stuff. Don`t like to fill up the Art/Data/Models folders, sooner or later it will be a horrible mess...Btw, link to Terramodels here: http://www.avsim.com/terramodels/

Cheers for the advice and warm welcome mate :) But even thogh I am new to Fly! I ain't new to computers. I know what I'm doing, and yes i did read the readme :)I think its searching for something within the pod files. And I downloaded everything that it said was required.I will try again now with terramodels download, but I doubt it will work :/ Also the aircraft repaints are all EPD (tho the readme says its a POD file :/).I'm happy(ish) with Fly! II. Its very good and all, but the laziness on the UK airports is annoying, and having to d/l all these patches just to get it up to my standard. However for

Gazz,The original Fly! variants used a "pod" file whose suffix was .EPD. These .EPD files were also called pods because of the way they encapsulated multiple files into one.The Fly!II pod file is a .POD. Both file types are indeed pod files, but there are differences. Some older .EPD files are compatible with Fly!II, but not all of them. No .POD file will function in earlier versions of Fly!, only Fly!II.
