Meteor Crater Natural Landmark?


Recommended Posts

The crater is already in my FSX, but I have a lot of ORBX scenery and it may be part of that. Anyway I found it by flying back and forth over the area where I knew it to be near Flagstaff, AZ. It wasn't easy to find. If you get the coordinates you can go right to it.

Well, I'm a standing on a corner

in Winslow, Arizona

and such a fine sight to see

It's a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed

Ford slowin' down to take a look at me

Come on, baby, don't say maybe

I gotta know if your sweet love is

gonna save me

We may lose and we may win though

we will never be here again

so open up, I'm climbin' in,

so take it easy ♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪

In FSX the location of the Crater is

N 35° 1.64 W 11° 1.18

But it isn't so impressive as the pictures from jethrom (#8)

happy landings! Christian:pilot:

Well thankyou for your kind comments flattermann (Christian), and f16jockey_2 (Wim).

I do actually use Orbx FTXGlobalBase textures, but no OLC_NA. In FSX its just default for the area DX9 default mode, I did however bump the Mesh Resolution to 1m (but usually leave it set on 5m). I use a few Graphic enhancements with Extremely high scenery & Autogen settings.


This my basic HW setup - i74770k @4.6GHz & GTX770 O.C Smooth 30FPS & DSR @2.25
