@flycanarias:
*Canay islands needs some 3d scenery work, at least the undeveloped airports we've cited before, as more objects in towns and other characteristic areas. Some users here can do that work (for me, let me out sometime to get done other on course projects, please). Take into account since some time ago, the main developer team is trying to get OSM data (buildings, roads, pylons, etc.) to an official form and probably on the next FG versions we can fly through the world with this functionality. I think that improving the Canary Islands at OSM.org will have a positive impact here retrospectively.
*the material files you can read about how to improve the existing or request help experienced users (not my case, sorry).
*photoscenery: you can benefit this type of functionality activating OSGEarth in your system and fly using a photo source. Alternatively, if the source is GPLed you can made a custom pack for FG and distribute it in some form.

Thanks to your support for scenery development in Spain, but i think we need more people or the exsting to be involved to get more things done.

Well, you are right, it's better to stick to the way of developing that we've been following...
@Catalonic
How is your development of GCRR and GCFV going on? Is it already far enough to give us some screenshots?
I don't quite know how and when Lukas will upload his airports, but on his webpage he provides the renewed version of GCLA, but it's not on TerraSync yet... Does anybody knows about this?
Lukas, if you read this, could you inform us about the status of GCLA and GCTS??
Kind Regards, flycanarias

Hey, how is the status of this project?
How far are the efforts to complete the missing airports?
What's the plan to continue with this scenery?

Kind Regards

Hi paju, IIRC there are already OSM buildings and roads included in my custom scenery :D https://github.com/D-ECHO/CanaryIslands-osm2city these fit to the custom terrain available here: https://github.com/D-ECHO/Canarys

@paju1986 @D-ECHO That's great!
@D-ECHO: Did the integration of textures to OSM2City work?
I recently read more about OSM, that it's possible to create power lines, harbours and more... Can you integrate this as well?

I had another Idea of making the scenery look more realistic.
In my opinion, the 2D ground images don't fit the Canaries that well. The rural textures look impressive, but the urban textures are not that nice.
E.G. take a look at the area you overfly when approaching GCFV's 01R. The ground texture shows a wide area of industrial/harbor textures. But in real life, this part of the city Puerto del Rosario consists of hotels, a golf course, and small residential areas.
Take a look yourself, just take the ILS app. 01R and compare it to the real thing:
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=v15tJl9wpYI
I think, that this problem could be solved, if we do the work manually. My Idea would be to cut out an urban model for each area needed, and leave the spaces, where the ground is looking through, to let the ground look through.
Image
You see what I mean? The sandy parts, where is neither a street, nor a building or anything.
That would require precise land class work, meaning to cut out these parts.
Do you have some ideas to these urban improvements?
Kind regards

@D-ECHO is not possible to put your custom scenery into terrasync?

That looks really impressive !
Good work.
Are you correcting the buildings and objects elevation for GCXO as well ?
And, by the way, do you plan to work on the missing airports of Arrecife, Tenerife Sur and Fuerteventura?

Hi flycanarias,
I'm not correcting the elevations as this will be automatically done as soon as the scenery is submitted to TS (and the terrain will change multiple times till then)
At the moment, I'm not planning to work on Arrecife, TS and Fuerteventura, but on Hierro:

Nice D-ECHO! GCXO need to fix some buildings with precise coordinates, seems the terminal and tower are out of place by some meters. Check that main building at Hierro too, it need a heading fix. Check the GHCI objects, under TS i see more of them.

Hi guys,
I already renewed GCLA, GCXO, GCTS and GCFV. Relative to GCXO, GCTS and GCFV I still got to fix the night textures, thus it needs still a little while.

Greetings, Lukas :)

That's great @Lukas @D-ECHO,

Lukas, can you already give us some screenshots?
That would be great.
