11. Nov. 2022 - TESTED SU11 - NO ISSUES - PLEASE REPORT IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEMS  

North Europe oil/gas offshore installations:

Placement of all Norwegian, Danish, Dutch, German, Irish, Russian, Polish and British oilrigs in the North Sea/Norwegian Ocean/Irish Sea/Baltic Sea/Celtic Sea.
Version 3.0 adds landable helipads on all rigs and FPOS.
Version 2.2 pinpoints about 500 rigs, FPOS and loading bouys in the Norwegian Ocean, the North Sea,the west coast of United Kingdom and the Baltic Sea.  I do not have accurate 3D models of the platforms, so the default MS Flightsim oilrig and oil tanker is used in all the locations. FPOS are made by merging the default platform and the default tanker. I have also added some oil tankers in the location of some of the loading buoys. The placement should be pretty accurate - source of positions are pulled from the Norwegian map authority's (Kartverket) electronic nautical charts (Norgeskart nautical charts), from Avinor IPPC service, from EMODmet and from a KML file found on the internet....   I'm pretty certain that all of the installations are covered - if you miss some, please let me know. There have been a lot of decommissioning and removal/clean up in the last years. I've tried to place only the installations still out there, but the cleanup is ongoing, so there will be some errors. There may also be a few rigs/FPOS missed or maybe hoovering or floating helipads. Please take a note of the position and let me know if you find some..... :-) 


Installation:
Just drop in your community folder. 

Requirement:
The free World update USA have to be installed - the MS Flightsim oilrig and tanker is a part of this package.

Ver 3.4
- Added rigs Petrobaltic and Petro Giant of coast of Poland in the Baltic Sea
- Buildt with SDK 0.15.0 for Sim update 1.20.6 compatibility.

Ver 3.3
- Buildt with SDK 0.14.0 for Sim update 1.18.15 compatibility.

Ver 3.1
- Added 106 POI positions. You can now start your flight in air, close to the oil/gas rigs, from the world map. You will also have POI markers on those positions. 

Ver 3.0
- Finally - added landable helipads on all rigs and FPOS's (merged tankers/rigs with helipads).  The oiltankers are not landable.

Ver 2.2
- Added 38 Dutch rigs and a tanker (loading buoy).
- Added 1 German rig 
- Added 2 Irish rigs
- Added 2 Russian rigs in the Baltic Sea
- Added 1 Polish rig in the Baltic Sea.

Ver 2.1
- Added 20 Danish platforms.

Ver 2.0
- All British offshore oil/gas covered 

Ver 1.0 
- All Norwegian oil platforms/rigs in correct positions
- Some oil tankers in positions of loading buoys

Issues: 
You will still not crash when when hitting the rigs/tankers outside the helipads......

Would you have a file of some sort with the actual placement coordinates of each rig?

I would like to try and add the relevant helipad ICAO name where applicable.

I have done two manually, but I would like to automate the process for all the rigs according to another list in LNM with ICAO.

This would then become and add-on to your fabulously complete add-on, with your permission of course! 😊

I only see the helipad. even when I have the USA update installed? does anyone know how to fix this????

thanks

I have this excellent mod installed, however, im obviously missing a texture for the actual landing pad as they all show up bright pink, anyone else have this issue?

SU7?

Hi there, I'd like to use this excellent add-on with Air Hauler 2, but to do that I need to figure out the long / latitude coords of all the locations, Do you know how I can acquire those? Thanks

hi, is this working with SU7 im getting the helicopter the airbus H135 and was wanting to do flights from EGPD to the offshore rigs near scotland, does it work with SU7?

Hi, any chance to add EBOO? Thanks in advance!

Please add the Stella Oil Field with FPF-1 in it for instance

are these lit at night? 320simpilot mentions flying over the north sea at night and their lights being clearly visible from 35000 ft.

sweet mod, unfortunately the pads on the rigs appear pink for me...what am I missing?

Would it be possible to change the Oil rigt from POI to airports, so they have a correct ICAO name, and DME.

Hi, great addition to the sim, it makes helicopter ops so much enjoyable !

Are you planning to upgrade some of the oilrigs with custom 3D modeling or something ?

Hi can you add Polish platforms in the Baltic Sea?

Great Job highly recommended.

Hi, any chance you can add 4 rigs and one FPSO that we have off the coast of New Zealand?

Kupe S39 51.05' E174 07.19' deck orientation 270degT

MAARI S39 59.14' E173 17.60' deck orientation 320degT

Maui A S39 331.30' E173 29.97' deck orientation 210degT

Maui B S39 38.72' E173 18.95' deck orientation 130degT

FPSO Raroa S39 58.36' E173 17.86' only 1nm from MAARI platform.

Hope you can place them for me.

Cheers

I'm getting pink squares at the helipads as well. I've just installed the scenery in todays most recent version, I did not have any previous versions. I did also not have the world update USA previously, I just downloaded it for this addon.

Did you by any chance find a solution for this problem in the meantime?

Hey I absolutely love this . any chance please of adding rigs to Dundee and the Cromarty Firth INVERNESS too please 😊

I have the same issue with the pink squares as missing texture. I have the same problem when I import the GBZH35's helipads to my own project. The problem is only with the circle one.

helipad missing texture , they appear pink like a game of chess ?

Thank You 😊

Frequently Asked

Questions? Find your solution here.

Cant you make the rigs landable?

They are landable - after ver 3.0 :-)
----------------------
The North Sea Oil Rig scenery consists of more than 500 positions. The only solution I can see will be to change the default oil rig with a modified landable version. Even that will probably make more problems on some of the positions where I merged two rigs or a rig and a oil tanker together to make FPSOs.
For now, I think I´ll wait to see if Asobo make the default assets landable in a future update.
Or - if I can get hands on a landable oil rig and oil tanker, maybe I can bulk edit all the rig GUID at once in the xml. To manually edit all will be too much work, I´m afraid.

I'm getting pink squares at the helipads

The missing textures is probably because you are using other sceneries that make use of GBZH35's helipads. If several sceneryes includes the same asset, the sim will use the first asset it find (as every asset only loads once) and if this asset is missing the texture file you get those pink squares instead..... 

To confirm this theory, plese remove everyting from your community folder, exept the oilrigs (and maybe a helicopter) and visit one of my oilrigs. 

If everything is ok now, I guess we have pinpointed the problem.
