FScene starts free “Beagle” FSX mission series

fsc-beagle-240x234Are you an FSX pilot? Do you like to fly missions? We’ve got some news for you. During 2009 and 2010 FScene is publishing a new series of free Flight Simulator X Missions, in cooperation with a team of old FS boys. Ruud Faber, Jaap van Hees, Chip Barber and Francois Dumas are all ‘veterans’ of the international flight simulation ‘scene’ and have put their spare time, enthusiasm and talents together to come up with this new “Beagle” series. The missions are all Inspired by a recently started 35-part Radio/TV series of VPRO, a Dutch Radio/TV station, to celebrate Charles Darwin’s 200th birth year and the 150th anniversary of his publication of “On the Origin of Species”. They follow the greater part of Charles Darwin’s journey on the HMS “Beagle” (1831-1836). To visit the special FScene mission page, click here.
Packed with Scientists, writers and artists the clipper “Stad Amsterdam” has left Plymouth on the first of September 2009 for this 8 months’ journey around the world. Join their adventure, and lend a hand! Supplied by air they need new instruments, medicines and food. As aircraft captain you are responsible for resupply. You’ll fly many different aircraft. Over many different seas. Have a look at the intro video on the FScene YouTube channel. The first missions are already waiting for you. Because the FScene replacement ground textures pleasantly enhance the landscapes in these missions, you can take advantage of related special FScene offers during the whole periode of the Beagle mission project.

Thanks, Doug and Francois! Will try redownloading first. It’s a package that seems to be very interesting.

Doug, we – the old boys – thank you for these nice words.
On the 2400 visitors of the website in 3 days you are the only one
who reacted.
It’s my sad experience that comments on FREE software for 99% are negative. Only those who do NOT like the stuff tend to react.

Oddly, and i speak from long experience, on PAYWARE, the positive reactions come in very very regularly.

Anyway it was refreshing to read your comments. Next mission is situated in Rio.

Okay, i just checked the site again, (hoping for mission 3 maybe LOL) and did not notice any support per se. Hoewever there is a Fscene PDF file in the lower right corner that may be of some assistance. Good luck my friend, I hope everyone who enjoys missions gives this a try, I hate that you are having trouble, but I believe that if you get it working you will feel it was worth all of the effort.
Best of luck to you

Well i am no computer expert by any means, so i am probably not the best source for help on this one, but the only thing i noticed that you used that i haven’t is adding the fscene touring scenery. Perhaps you could try to redownload it, and retry the exe. Soemtimes you can get a corrupt file, (not a virus) just a file that for some reason doesn’t have all the info. Try that and see what happens. I hope you get it to work because it sure would be worth the effort of another download and to uninstal… Read more »
