For shared models positions.
If you want to add, delete, update, mass import shared models, please please use the forms at http://scenemodels.flightgear.org/submission/.
Use -9999 as elevation if you want the database to automagically compute it - less hassle for you ;-)


I used only shared models with elevation not equals to -9999 for database not automatically compute it , but it probably does'nt work, because :

Why the hell database recalculated elevation, when I used my own elevation other than -9999 ???

I have this problem on all submited airports (LZIB, NZQN, NZAA, SEQU, SKBO). I used form for update offsets, now waiting for database update.

maybe it doesn't like
1) that your long/lat are a digit short and carry a (very small) loss of precision?
Code: Select all
17.19885590 48.16914986
17.1988559  48.1691499


2) possibly it uses the top (or bottom?) of the model for elevations since those are tall so they can be used elsewhere for taller or shorter buildings?
Code: Select all
16.1687
130.68


3) that some of your headings do not contain any decimals?
Code: Select all
316.0
316


remember, the upload forms and backend procedures used are different than what FG uses... it is possible that some combinations of data will lead to misplaced/misaligned objects...

i cannot speak for the -9999 problem... that would require someone with access to the backend code to look and see why it is not being taken into account... maybe for shared models it doesn't apply?

I placed that objects, dumped data to .stg file, copy and paste to TS submit form. Result is in my previous post.

erk! i owe you a bit of an apology, too... i had the two stg listings mixed backwards... the terrasync generated one does not have the precision of what you pasted from your handcrafted stg...

Simply Poprad-Tatry (LZPP) and even simplier Piestany (LZPP) are on my github...

I submited offsets updates to terrasync March, 1st. I got approval mail messages about offset changes, but the changes were still not revealed. How long to wait for the scene to be updated ?

Yes, only shared models. I have not spare time for modeling detailed buildings. Today, I added some stuff on the airport.

It looks really nice and fine to see more airports populated, all contributions are really appreciated!

Looks terrible in comparation with reality, but better than empty concrete place.

New addition - NZCH - Christchurch International Airport is here - https://github.com/BAWV12/NZCH

Again - nothing extra, only shared models. Now, we have main New Zaeland airports not only as empty concrete places...

NZCH updated. Some objects had bad references.

Next goal - if it will be possible, make 10 highest airports for WCA tour...
For example La Paz is possible.
