Openstreetmap data

Postby planefan89 » Wed Jul 22, 2020 9:46 pm

hello, I've been working on Hong Kong scenery based on Project Hong Kong's VHXX custom scenery, but I don't know how to use Openstreetmap data. Btw I'm a noob who started flying last year.

I have not done any scenery development (apart from adding some objects here and there), but could this FlightGear wiki article be of help: osm2city.py?

The osm2city buildings, roads, and pylons are in AC3D format, but raw osm data is not. apparently the data has to be somehow converted to AC3D, but I don't know how.

All necessary documentation for osm2city.py is included in "ReadtheDocs", the link to which is found on the wiki page that @JohanG provided above.
However, if you don't want to learn how to create your own buildings, pylons, etc. you can download already built osm scenery for the location(s) you want from this link: https://cdn.merspieler.tk/osm2city/current/
