Here we go! (Sorry it took so long) (click to enlarge the pictures)

This is the custom scenery from: https://gitlab.com/fgradi/custom_scenery_VHXX

VHXX from approximately approach angle:

VHXX Terminal Building:

One more gimmick; the traffic shader! Great thing! These cars look very nice from above - and they even move! We need that in the generic scenery as well, IMHO (though I think they are a bit too fast).

Notes:

[OT]
I had some trouble with ALS. I would have loved to use ALS for these shots, as this would have further enhanced the quality, but I was not able to convince ALS to use the actual visibility settings... Both shots use the same weather setting (Fair Weather).

See:

Propably time to pull the latest FG...

Seems to have repaired itself... :roll:


And I got this message in the terminal (about 8 times):
Code: Select all
osgDB ac3d reader: could not find texture "FS2X-palette.png"

[/OT]

Can't do - you need uv-mapped roads for that. Once you have that, it's easy to add (I suppose I could even manage cars which don't use both lanes...) :mrgreen:

Here are some shots of my Phuket(VTSP) OSM2City rendering:

BTW, The terrain wasn't that good, and I probably can't run TerraGear.(Although the OSM coastlines are interesting to render!)
There are free alternatives to every program you encounter. You just have to find them.

Nice pics/places wkitty42!

Unfortunately ( as you porpably have seen on the mailing list yourself ) Thorsten is taking a break. Hopefully we can get this to work without him, until he's back.

If I'm not mistaken, the poll is about to start in 1 1/2 weeks. Lets see if we can get this going.

Best regards
chris

+1 LSZH, VHHH

Those seem like good airports, nice and big, well modeled.

I might make a few screenshot.

LSZH Zurich. Largest airport in Switzerland is in my top 3 of favourite airports/surroundings. Also looks very good at night.

-Enough parking space for big jets and small aircraft
-Sometimes challenging weather
-20-30 miles south of this airport lies a big mountain range so approaching from the south with a big jet can be challenging but also fun.
-VFR flights are also fun because of the mountain range and big valleys. Try for instance LSZH-LOWI.
-And from Zurich it is not far to other big airports/cities (Paris, Frankfurt, Lyon, Milan)

@NL-Ray: Could you please "post a short description" along with your two screenshots (maybe edit the post)?

Cheers,
