Yes, that website has also been created by me (oh, I should maybe write my name on the websites I create :oops:)
But unfortunately the textures are also not included in the zip file I linked there...

Nice job. If you want someone to try it out before publishing it, let me know ;)

Awesome! Can I work with the buildings and objects of La Palma Airport (GCLA) and Airport of Tenerife North (GCXO) if you aren't working there?
PS: May i let you do GCLA because your version is more updated.

I have never done a version of either GCLA or GCXO, the ones linked to from my website are done by lukas IIRC.

I know but as for GCLA appears a comment: "(updated version from lukashangar.jimdo.com)". What do you mean?

Yes, I indeed seem to have done something with that one.... probably I corrected some object positions to comply with the new terrasync terrain or so... and yes, you can work on it as you want. :D

Looks great!
Personally, I'd add the "default" mountain texture to the top of the mountains, and a little more dark green to the brown texture... Maybe some woods or small vegetation.
But still, it looks very good, I'm impressed by your work.
Is there a manual or tutorial to learn texturing you would recommend?? (So I can help to get the Canaries complete)
Great!
P.S.: Auch einen Guten Tag!

There is a quite huge wiki article about this:
http://wiki.flightgear.org/Howto:Regional_texturing
On the other hand, you can just open one of the region files (in FGDATA/Materials/regions/), this should mostly be self-explanatory :D A useful tool therefor is, if you don't know what the name of the landmass you want to texturize is, take the ufo, press Ctrl (Strg :D) + Alt and click on the landclass, this will show you its name :)
