There you go. If you like it, upload a screenshot. And if you happen to pass through Oakleigh sometime, buy me a beer ;)

I've also converted the amazing YMML-scenery by ISDG from X-Plane to FG (the objects, at least), and asked them for permission to share it. Should they grant it, I'll update the repo.

How about this? :D

By way of explanation. Earlier this year, my daughter and I went for a joy flight around Albert Park Lake (Melbourne) during this year's Australian Grand Prix. During the flight, I took a video from my smart phone hoping that one day I could use the footage as a reference to help with improving the FG scenery myself.

For comparison, I give you the below five images:

You can see where the landclass needs fixing as the road just below the tail is the
boundary of the reserve and there shouldn't be any buildings to the left of it (See below photo).
Oh and the lake itself is completely missing.
:(

You can see the Eureka tower in the top right (tall skinny building) & the Sports and Aquatic Centre (large flat building in the top left)
as well as the buildings correctly placed around the race track not to mention the distinctive cloverleaf shaped building (middle right).

The new OSM city skyline is amazing when you compare it to the real life image.

And what tour of Melbourne would be complete without an image of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG)?

Its the building in the top right.
Not too bad at all considering the stadium was auto-generated from OSM data


Another still from the earlier joy flight for comparison

I must say, I'm impressed with what you guys have done and can't wait for the updated landclass as the
coast, lake and Yarra river are all far from accurate in the standard scenery.

Flying in FG now is even more fun as I find I'm looking around at the buildings and landmarks trying to see
if I can recognise just them as I do whenever I get the opportunity to fly in real life. :P

Very cool work indeed. 8)

I just got TerraGear installed today and finally turned my land cover into scenery!

The texture blending isn't great and industrial areas are confusingly black water, but there are some significant improvements over the stock scenery

- Docklands/Yarra River well defined
- Gippsland no longer evergreen forest (all the way to Morwell)
- Melbourne properly suburban (terrible texture though)
- Port Phillip Bay better defined
- Some towns north of Wallan better defined

You can clearly see where the edge of the satellite photo was, though.

Awesome! Now I need to get around to use 5m LIDAR DEM (CC 4.0) with that.
