About

The Arecibo Observatory is an observatory in Arecibo, Puerto Rico, also known as the National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center (NAIC). It is owned by the US National Science Foundation (NSF).

The main instrument of the observatory was the Arecibo Telescope, a 305 m (1,000 ft) spherical reflector dish built into a natural sinkhole, a cable-mount steerable receiver mounted 150 m (492 ft) above the dish, and several radar transmitters for emitting signals. Completed in 1963, the Arecibo Telescope was the world's largest single-aperture telescope for 57 years, surpassed in July 2016 by the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST) in China. The Arecibo Telescope suffered catastrophic structural failure on December 1, 2020 after two cable breaks in the previous months. The Observatory also includes a radio telescope, a Lidar facility, and a visitor's center which are expected to remain operational after assessing the damage from the main telescope collapse. The observatory was an icon of the Puerto Rican space and science industry.

This scenery contains modellib.bgl which conflicts See the section here on CTD's being caused by scenery and how to fix it. Could you fix it please? https://flightsim.to/blog/creators-guide-fix-ctd-issues-on-your-scenery
Hi, would you please consider making the changes to your files as suggested by opjose below on the 12th Dec? Your mod looks great, it would be an amazing addition to the sim.
As a Goldeneye fan, this is perfect! I made a homage video 😊 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5sdp1OXHCY
Hi. This scenery contains modellib.bgl which conflicts as per Asobo's recommendations. See the section here on CTD's being caused by scenery and how to fix it. Could you fix it please? https://flightsim.to/blog/creators-guide-fix-ctd-issues-on-your-scenery
Thank you. I will check it out today to see if there are conflicts.
Just checked and it only loads when you are a few feet from the mod. See pics [img]https://i.imgur.com/tRptbZR.png[/img] [img]https://i.imgur.com/D0LS2GB.png[/img] [img]https://i.imgur.com/UBbStAo.png[/img]
Maybe you can improve. Either way is better than having nothing such as with default.
Great contribution. It would be nice to be able to improve the environment, with the buildings around the complex.
I have detected that the cables that hold the central structure are not visible and that the model is not visible from a certain distance, if not only when you get very close to it.
It would be nice to fix these details in future versions.
Thank you.
