Freeware Model: Oil Rig Helipad

  • 3D Model that can be placed anywhere in the world :thumbup:


    Download and Installation Instructions at https://flight-sim.org/filebas…re-model-oil-rig-helipad/


    If you want to place the Oil Rig somewhere else in the world, find a flat surface and make sure all LONG/LAT positions are the same in both TSC files.

    Note:

    By DEFAULT this model is positioned and placed in PNW: Quatam River Freeware No real oil rigs are there and is completely fictional for my personal entertainment.

  • Hey there, I'm new to this forum and just wanted to say thanks for sharing your Oil Rig Helipad 3D model. It looks like a really cool addition to my flight simulator! Do you know if there are any other models available with more heavy equipment and machinery on the rig? I recently discovered some info on a workover rig for drilling, and I'm curious to see if there are any 3D models available for that. It would be awesome to have a more realistic oil rig experience in my simulator. Thanks again for sharing your model, and any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

  • Unfortunately, I can't answer the actual question because I don't know of any other drilling and production platform at the moment.


    However, I am taking the opportunity to point out to FS4 users that Quatam River with the drilling platform is now also available for FS4:

    However, the Blackhawk is too heavy to land on the drilling rig or even the (little) ship. :P

    Tschüss, Michael (🍎🚁)

    - I do have some better and more realistic Oil Rigs but they are from Payware sceneries. Unfortunately I cannot share these.

    - If you happen to have some payware models I could show you how to properly convert them for Aerofly.
