  1. does that mean that any chance of having more antartica stuff is dead... cry cry... etienne
  2. can this be true? I see folks with 2 680gtx in sli, so 6GO of VRAM, according to you FSX should not even launch, and it seems to work. strange isnt it? etienne
  3. hmm sometimes I surprise myself... Thanks for stating the obvious Etienne
  4. Thanks a lot steffsim, can you give guidance on how to get there? Etienne
  5. The manual installation involved is very standart: You create a folder (like "myantartica") where you want, most people put in the fsx/addon scenery with the other extensions, but you dont have to. You create two sub folders (texture and scenery). All addon scenery have the same structure you copy the content of the texture folders from the 2 .zip files in the texture folder you just created (normally all the *.dds files) you copy the content of the scenery folders from the 2 .zip files in the scenery folder you just created (normally all the *.blg files) you declare the scenery in the scenery lib above antartica x using the scenery librairy menu inside fsx you should see the new stuff in the simulator. Hope this helps. Etienne.
  6. well, the name is in the signature (etien). best you create a new folder like 'my antartica' , copy the content of Marble Point and Mario Zuchelli in it, and then declare it. Etienne
  7. version 1.1 http://www.mediafire...ljq68uou6kdkt3m Adds (6) Lower Erebus Hut, nearby helicopter wreck and lava (7) New Harbor off shore site (8) Air New Zealand flight 901 wreck and monument. as before a .kmv file is provided info: http://erebus.nmt.ed.../livingonerebus http://en.wikipedia....land_Flight_901 http://www.southpole.../igy2/helo.html Etien
  8. you should only install this one. etienne
  9. Hi, I do really think that FSMap needs to evolve. 1. Display of google earth satellite and maps 2. possibility of displaying .kmv files 3. A "night" switch with dim red or green display. (could be linked to the "panel light" of fsx) Etien
  10. Any news about release time? This looks cool. Etienne
  11. This is an addon for Lime Sim / Aerosoft Antartica X. It adds highlights elements around McMurdo. (1) Marble Point Refuel base (2) remains of Vanda base (3) wreck of the pegasus (4) Scott Hut (5) Schackelton Hut. The glacier just above Marble point is "landable" in reality and is a nice half way between McMurdo and MarioZuchelli. A Kmz map is provided Beware in real life passangers are saying that "Marble Point" becomes visible only just you are right on top of it, in FSX this is almost the same because of the marble floor it is sitting on. Credits: Marble Point and Vanda are orginals, the pegasus is a transformation of the Constellation of 707 (3D warehouse), the two huts are just convertion of the work of pmolsen (3D warehouse), some filler objects from the Antartica X libraries (sascha).

  12. thanks a lot! this is the kind of sign that tells me an expension addon is deeply needed Etien
  13. Taking advantage of the Ice discount I just bought Lukla X, as my title says, the scenary shows a bit its age, and I do think that more summits should have been photoreal mapped, as well as the full valley to the everest, but I had a lot of fun crashing instead than landing with a twin otters. And fun is what at the end of the day matters! Thanks for that great addon. Etienne
  14. We are all burning candles that sascha will do an expension to this great scenery. Etienne
  15. hi, v1.1 taking into account some of Sascha's feedback. http://www.mediafire.com/?9jdp3pssmy7pc9m Etienne
  16. Thanks Sascha for your feed back. You can make the 3D terrain you created landable using a platform. See FSX SDK. could do; at least put some kind of helipad somewhere The terrain reflects the sunlight. If you added this texture as FSX Material, check "No base material specular" in the material settings to remove the reflection. The way I work is by using sketchup + modelconverterX; not too sure I can do that then. Will try because indeed this is "funy". Add a smooth modifier to your terrain in Gmax/3DS (you find it at the same location where you find UVWUnwrap etc.).The higher the number, the smoother it will look. same [*] For the 3D object's textures I would recommend some perspective correction. See here how to do this. Fair enuf; didnot know gimp was doing it (I tend to strech the texture on a cube in sketchup; rotate the cube; then do I screenshot of the corrected face). Is this that bad? As soon as everything is done.... ... should already be on simviation. Ok I may want to perfect it a bit; but honestly for me as a hobby developper the current result is okish. Please notice that I dont want to reduce the potential impact of a professional payware extension from LimSim; so if you think this is unwelcome please be sincere. If not; I may want to pursue and add some building at marambio, and populate some of the coast of King George Island. Etienne
  17. Hi, I just done the Mario Zuchelli base for antartica x, it can be found attached to this post. this is what it looks like: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/85 … helli.jpg/ http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/805/mz2.jpg/ etienne MarioZuchelli.zip
  18. thanks alot it worked, man this scenary is just amazing now that I can see it on its full spendor!
  19. marlinlest, mind looking at my recent thread on antartica x and confirm/infirm that i should not have those .blg.blob files in my antartica x foldde? Etienne
  20. Hi, well, i am more and more convinced that something went wrong when that dvd was burned, i have a long list of .blg.blob files all done at the same time (see the picture of the folder attached thru mediafire below, aka the 11/18/2011 11:59 am) that must have failed to extract/ print correctly when the dvd was done. The funy thing is that the thing is sort of working at some place (mc murdo and rothera) and totally failling at others (neumayer) this is why I did not notice the problem at first. My contacting me for a replacement? Etienne http://www.mediafire...wl1pn8gocnxek1s
  21. Nobody has the same issue? Also I dont seem to have any buildings at Casey, is that normal? i dont see Neumayer as well (just a high def texture) i cannot see as well the neumayer building i am noticing that lots of my files are called xxxx.blg.blob for exampe for Neumayer I can see: Neumayer.blg.blob Neumayer_Library.blg Neumayer_trails.blg and nowhere I can see the bases that is in the front page of the manual did something went wrong in the install? pleade help Etienne
  22. Another question, just went to visit Mario Zuchelli which is described as "medium" details wide in the documentation. The only thing I could see is a couple of runways and 2 statics airplanes (and a nice mesh). None of the buildings were rendered (they can be seen in google earth). Is this normal? (nb I am very happy with the "high" bases, especially Rothera and McMurdo - when I dont sink). Etienne
