I was watching my son on FS9 last evening. He took off from SEA in a KingAir 350 from rwy 34L. After take off, he climbs out very low. Out beyond the end of the rwy, I spotted what looked like a giant chicken! So he turn the plane around, swoops down low and sure enough, my eyes didn't decieve me, a GIANT CHICKEN! I had to laugh.  rotfl  It looks like it's on the roof of a building, like it is suppose to be a chicken resturant or something like that.
But it did get me thinking. Have any of you avid FS'ers found any other strange objects like that planted amongst the scenery? (I know there is a thread about a big black spike in Peru or something. Maybe an hommage to "2001 A Space Odessy") but anomolies in source code are not what I am refering to. I'm talking about curious objects intentionally placed in the scenery by the designers.
I heard that Bill Gate's house is on there somewhere, though I don't know where his house is so I can't confirm it. I was just curious

That's a chicken fast food joint. Think of it as KFC. You'll find them everywhere if your autogen is set to "very dense". There's also a Cow version there as well.

And a fish. A fish on a big stick. Extra-large fish sticks?

I'd get my camera out and take as many pics as possible cos the chances of seeing that ever again would be way below zero!!!!  rotfl

There are apparently loads of "Easter Eggs" in FS9.1. What I mean is quirks in the program that make it a bit more interesting. If you set the date right, and fly over certain places, you can see certain things happening. I'm sure one of them is a volcano erupting - but you have to get the date right.

Its very easy to find.take off in a cessna from runway 27 at KSAN climb to 500 feet .fly 55 secs until coast then turn right and follow coastline for another 50 secs and your be right over it. you will also see other moving fairground attractions.
Or you could just take off from RW27 and fly a heading of 320 degrees and you should spot the park on the coast line after 1 min.
if i showed a screenshot it obviously wouldnt show any movement of the cars.

Actually ive just tried it.Take off KSAN RW27 in a cessna immediatey on take off turn right 295 degrees and fly for 100 secs and you should be right over it.The rollercoaster park is directly behind the solitary skyscrapper on the coast.
Also theres a giant chicken and aircraft that park amongs thee trees at ksan. Some of the yellow parking lines go through trees in the cargo parking area.
