Scenery Mistake?

Postby Alex H » Fri Oct 05, 2018 9:13 am

I'm new to Flightgear.

To get more experience with the aircraft, I tend to fly in places that I have lived or visited, to see what scenery has been created (or not)

I have flown in the area near Bielefeld, Germany and discovered something I think should not be there.

This is a large office block in the middle of a forest. I have checked with Google Maps / earth and can't find it.

Is it possible someone has placed it in the wrong place?

How does this get corrected?

Regards

Alex

I guess you mean this object: https://scenery.flightgear.org/app.php? ... &id=485842

Check it is the same object by "show location on the map"

If you are sure there is not any skyscraper at this location, just click on "delete the object". The scenery will be updated in a few days after the approval.

You should also check if there is an obstacle at this place in reality. Some of the skyscrapers are placed as placeholders for obstacles that you can find in aerial charts of this area. Then it it is better to leave it there until it is replaced with a model of the original.

I see what you are saying, kind of. there should be an aerial at the location, so why not put one there - it surely doesn't matter much if it's not the right shape / size, but a 16 storey tower block?

It's https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/H%C3%BCnenburg_bei_Bielefeld#/media/File:H%C3%BCnenburg.jpg - if you want to replace the model that's great, but I wouldn't delete it outright.

I've replaced it with a generic comms tower (which has 19 other copies in Germany!) - at least I think I have, time will tell
