!!!MOUNT PACIFIC!!!

Post by tangytom » Sat Apr 15, 2006 4:02 pm

ATTENTION! Breaking news, as i was flying low over the pacific ocean i amazingly discovered a water covered mountain that does not appear to be on the flight sim map, the co-ordinates are: latitutde: N47* 51.87 longitude W129* 21.60 this should put you on top of the mountain which i have dubbed Mt. Pacific. Please investigate to see if this is a real glitch or my flight sim gone haywire thank you.

Time for surfing, boys!!!!! 8) 8) LOL.

Looks like an underwater volcano monster has woken up from its deep deep sleep from deep deep underwater and is now rising to see the morning sun :D .
Or it is a submaring coming above the water :D . LOL

Looks like another terrain error MSFS needs to fix :mrgreen:

I didn't try the flight, but isn't there some big hole a meteorite made a long time ago somewhere in the west?

if you guys are talking about a huge hole in arizona,thepackrat and tropicalfish, heeshung is right, there is actually a meteorite hole that is in arizona, so that big hole is actually right, no coding error there.

In Arkansas there is a massive deep hole. Eureka Springs sure as hell is not that deep. Direct route from KDFW to Andrews AFB.

There is a file called six_default_fixes.zip on AVSim. I believe that fixes some of these or such other errors in the FS9 scenery.

I remember that there was a huge deep chasm, near some airport in the US, where it was I dont remember. And elsewhere there was a dagger like mountain that rises suddenly out of a flat plane and reaches thousands of feet up into the sky. Precise directions to each of these anomalies are provided from the nearest airport so that you can verify before running the fix and after.

Maybe you should check it out.

Edit: By the way here are the errors fixed by the file.


To see the 15,000 ft hole error at Millwood Lake, start at Glenn Winchester airport (2AR6) and fly heading 175 for 6.5 nm.
To see the 11,500 ft hole error at Stockton Lake, start at Stockton Mun (MO3) and fly heading 120 for 6 nm.
To see the big hill near Memphis error, start at Delta Flying Service Inc airport (MS65) and fly heading 117 for 2 nm.
To see the floating runways at Davis airport (KMKO), simply start at Davis airport (KMKO)!
To see the Girdwood river 'cliffs', simply start at Girdwood airport (AQY)!
To see the 100,000+/60,000 ft chasm/spire, start at Kamarang (SYKM) and fly heading 163 for 6 nm.

I first thought it was an add-on that made this terrain error (because I had scenery of the whole area), but since you have it too, must be a default error.

Thank you, thank you, I am glad you enjoy the new fictional Mt. Algeria :D \:D/

You know what I did the first time I saw it? I took the Stratojet Excalibur, got to the absolute edge, and I bungee jumped off... :P

What we should do when FSX comes out is test all these different faulty places which we all discovered and see if they are still there :D . Perhaps report these terrain faults to Microsoft? Just a suggestion so they are aware of the problems.

Why is it that when im fling to the north pole, you can not get to the very centre as there is a big snow wall and nothing beyond it? should i not be able to simply carry on and start heading south again?

That is a known glitch in FS2004. However, I have not personally experienced it and I did not have a problem on my Newark, NJ to Hong Kong flight right over the North Pole.

It is built into the game.

You cannot fly directly over the North or South Pole.

giant hole in Arkansas, i took this pic while i was enroute from KCHS to KDFW. you can clearly see my location on my Navigator, as well as the GPS coordinates at the top to help you out on your slew to location. I have no clue how deep this hole is, or what is at the bottom. I found this in FS2004 and i have no clue yet if it is still in FSX. Happy flying.

This is definitely a Mapping Challenge for Helicopter Pilots!

Let's get to the bottom of this anomoly. I'll fly the anomoly myself when I have a mo-. But until I do, this couild be a cool one for RD's Screenshots Topics! "FS Anomoly's--weather, sunsets, sunrises, creative".

Thanks Capt Prop for the heads up! =P~
