Yet another place to drop in for dinner ;) http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/130314.jpgLooks like a heck of a party!http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/130315.jpgHere comes the fleet...http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/130316.jpgSeagull's eye view (there's someone eating fish & chips under that palm - might see if I can annoy him away from his food...).http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/130317.jpg:-wave

Hans,Well, since it was me who sent another begging letter to the southern hemisphere, then.....yes, it will be part of SanFran 2006. After looking at those screenshots, I now understand what a complicated little building it was to create.Thanks, Jon. Your efforts are very much appreciated.Chris Low.

I'll have to check that out. Jon has provided me with a package (presumably the one seen in the screenshots), but I had already created a scenery package of San Francisco Marina (with trees, marinas and sailboats). I have simply added the St Francis Yacht Club model to this, but it seems like glidernut (and probably many others) would prefer Jon's version with the yachts and palm trees :-)Chris Low.

I don't mean to throw a spanner in the works here:-hmmm, but I don't believe palm trees are native to San Francisco - much too chilly. Their range in California probably doesn't extend much farther north than San Luis Obispo, as I recall from driving the entire coast. I could be remembering it incorrectly, but that's what my memory is of the matter.-Seadog

Jon,That yacht club building is quite hard to place. I added it to my San Francisco Marina package (viewing it from quite close up), and it looked fine. Then I zoomed out, and it looked all wrong !What orientation did you use for the building ?By the way, I was thinking about those flat sailboats. Is there any way that we could replace the existing version in the modelmip.tag file with a 3D boat of the same size ? I suppose that I could replace all of the ones that I have added with one of your other yachts, but there must be hundreds (if not thousands) in SanFran 2006 :-eekHaving said that, 3D versions of the marina models would probably be nice........Chris Low.

OK, I shoulda known this but they're actually good ol' Australian Gum Trees (Eucalypts) :-lolFunny, I never realised that all those "Australian looking" trees in California ARE actually Australian eucalypts, introduced in the 19th century.Arrr, we make a good tree, yes we do :-rollSo, a rough planting (Chris can fix it up properly...):http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/130612.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/130613.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/130614.jpgAnd the zipfile at the bottom contains the new trees and mips for those interested ;):-wave

Quite fetching. Thanks. I grew up in South Florida, where Australian Pines and Melaleuca trees were the windbreaks and soil stabilizers of choice on the verges of the Everglades and the banks of man-made canals. Absolutely everywhere. Thanks for all the good trees, real and virtual. :-lol -Seadog

Quite fetching, John ;)ALthough, as weird as gum trees in Seattle is (actually, the bleedin' things grow in snow here...), a boab in Seattle?Speaking of windsocks, I tried 'moving' my flags! See zipfile attached. Only the 'US' and 'UK' flags move right now, but hey - it's 2:24AM and I just got off stage after playing for nearly 3 hours. Why am I here? I'm waiting for the ringing in my ears to subside :-rollI'm getting too old for this ;)
