Yeah it's a good idea to continue the work on Manhattan and a shapefile is welcomed because it's not rewarding to see one's building on the river... Updating the wish list should be a good start : http://wiki.flightgear.org/Landmark_Wish_List
If there is a building you want to see, write it there if you don't know how to model your building.

Boeing : To have the latest scenery buildings, use Terrasync so that it upload your scenery when you fly above it. However, I don't know how to update shapefiles...

The shapefile has been updated but there are problems with getting it onto the server at the moment, please be patient.

I haven't had a lot of time at the moment due to being busy at work but I'll be on holiday from the 15th June. In the mean time I have found some time to re work some of the models I did previously for NY. First up is the Flatiron building, just added some extra little details that were not on the original.

Statto how's the landclassing going? I've been checking the mapserver every now and then to see if it already ended up there, but no...

"New York South" as I'll call it is done but that doesn't include Manhattan. Martin hasn't touched it, and I don't have access to the mapserver anymore.

If you've still got your Manhattan probably worth sending it in to him.

Hm, I think I've deleted it, as I thought yours was better. But I'll check my other computer this weekend...
So, am I right that "New York South" is just waiting to be merged in the mapserver?

Yes, the shapefiles are here: http://www.stattosoftware.com/flightgear/nys.zip

Note the Manhattan in this file is NOT the hand made (and better) Manhattan.

Now you got me confused. You do have a Manhattan shapefile? If so, why should I send mine in (if I can find it)?
Or maybe it's just time to go to bed and am I wrong... :oops:

Sorry, it is confusing :)

I have two Manhattan shapefiles, the one in the link I provided is NOT the better Manhattan shapefile.

Unfortunately the better shapefile is on a "dead" computer, so I would actually send yours in if you can find it.
