Questions and discussion about enhancing and populating the FlightGear world.

Iceland

Postby D-ECHO » Fri May 17, 2019 11:35 am

Good day,
as Keflavik (BIKF), Iceland seems to be coming up as the next default airport for FlightGear (viewtopic.php?f=42&t=35814), I'd like to see whether we can get a team together of people improving this island to make it present the best we have when starting up for the first time ;).
I already have an improved terrain version (mostly new layouts and some OSM stuff for landcover) laying around on my harddrive that I am probably going to upload to git soon. What we would need (besides better terrain data, if we can find any, although I think this is currently already very nice) would be objects for as many airfields as we can and maybe some material improvements (e.g. airports still look quite different to what they look IRL).
Regards :)

The following will be a list of airports along with their current status (layout development - objects development):

Code: Select all
BIAE
BIAL  -  layout could be improved (->ref?!)   -  no objects
BIAR - layout good - modelled (static+shared), new: lead-in lights
BIBA
BIBD  -  layout good  -  no objects
BIBF  -  layout ok  -  modelled (shared)
BIBI
BIBK
BIBL
BIBR  -  layout ok  -  modelled (shared)
BIBV  -  layout ok  -  modelled (shared)
BIDA
BIDG
BIDV  -  layout ok  - modelled (shared)
BIEG  -  layout good - modelled (shared)
BIEH  -  layout ok-  modelled (shared), CHECK PLACEMENT (displaced)
BIFF  -  layout ok -  modelled (shared)
BIFL  -  layout good  -  no objects
BIFM  -  layout ok  -  modelled (shared)
BIGE
BIGF
BIGH
BIGJ  -  layout ok  -  no objects
BIGR  -  layout ok  -  modelled (shared)
BIGS
BIHE
BIHI
BIHK
BIHL
BIHN  -  layout good  -  modelled (shared)
BIHR
BIHT
BIHU  -  layout good  -  no objects
BIHV
BIHX
BIHY
BIHZ (!)
BIID
BIIS  -  layout ok  -  modelled (shared)
BIKA
BIKE
BIKF (Keflavik)  layout quite good   -     modelled (shared)
BIKJ
BIKL  -  layout ok   -  modelled (shared)
BIKP
BIKR  -  layout ok  -  modelled (shared)
BIMK
BIMM
BIMN
BIMS
BIND
BINF  -  layout good  -  custom terminal
BIOF
BIPA
BIRE
BIRF  -  layout quite good  - modelled (shared)
BIRG
BIRK (Reykjavik)  -  detailed layout (improvement possible) - might need some better shared model placement/maybe some custom buildings?
BIRL
BIRS
BISA
BISF
BISG  -  layout could be improved (->ref?!)  -  no objects
BISH
BISI
BISK
BISL  -  layout ok   -  no objects
BISN  -  layout could be improved  -  no objects
BISP
BISR  -  layout good  - modelled (shared)
BISS - quite good layout, modelled (shared)
BIST  -  layout ok  - modelled (shared)
BISV
BITE
BITF
BITH
BITM
BITN  -  layout good  -  no objects
BITO
BIVH
BIVI  -  layout good  -  no objects
BIVM  -  layout ok -  modelled (shared)
BIVO  -  layout ok  -  modelled (shared)

modelled (shared) = modelled using shared objects
modelled(shared+static) = modelled using shared and static objects

[EDIT] at least all aerodromes are now rated to have an overview for the work

Please report any missing airports and maybe it would be good if people also reported the airports they are working on, so we don't get duplicate efforts.

For airports with layouts that need improved I can if you like pull the gateway layouts and remove polygons (convert to taxiways), etc, clean them up for genapts850? Or did you mean they need improved in the gateway?

I've got a working groundnet for BIKF, just needs a little updating.
Currently running 2018.1 but if it doesn't stop crashing I'm taking up tiddlywinks!

I meant ones that seem to have potential in improvement in the gateway, but would need to check for each, it's only a rough overview

I can make small airports with shared models. But someone would upload it to terrasync.

Assuming BIKF is selected, I'd be interested in doing The Rainbow sculpture. Happy to help with other models.

Uh, this seems interesting, just had a look at it @xDraconian, thank you!

Update from me: I have generated all of Iceland with all airports (BI**) now. Will now start to look into improving layouts etc. with WED and will be uploaded to https://github.com/D-ECHO/Iceland soon

BIBF, small grass airport - finish
BIBR, small dist airport - finish
BIBV, small disrt airport - finish
BIDV, small dirt airport - finish
BIFF, small dirt airport - finish
BIFL, small airport with tarmac, developed in TS
BIFM, small dirt airport - finish
BIGR, small tarmac airport - finish
BIKL, small dirt airport - finish
BIRF, small tarmac / dirt airport - finish
BIST, small dirt airport - finish
BIVO, small tarmac airport - finish

D-ECHO - download from https://github.com/BAWV12/Iceland and add that airports to Your Icelnad project please. All airports are developed from shared models, in this case I did not used any Airbase Pack models.

Hmmm, no very great work, only very basic layouts, some of them with only 2 objects.
No, I did not uploaded it to TS, because some objects have adjusted elevation and I don't know how do it for ehm, not ideal ehm ehm terrasync mass uploader...

Roger, if you want, you can send 'em to me (or get commit access to the repository), I will take care of getting it all into terrasync once it's progressed further.

Would it be okay for you if I add them to my repository and give you commit access, so we don't have two sepearte repos for the same island?
