Macedonia 2014 scenery project for FSX

Post by samsamfin »

Hello,

I'm working on my little scenery project for Macedonia. I'm using openstreetmap data for streets, railways, rivers and lakes. Land class tiles im adding on my own. I still have lots of work to do, like lake and river elevations and adding land class tiles for cities and towns and villages. No changes have or will be done to any airports.

Feel free to try it out: http://1drv.ms/1eoCZRP

Feedback is highly appreciated!

I uploaded a map of the whole area i'm working on. so far all roads from OSM data have been added, as well as rivers, streams, lakes, railroads, and some of the land class. land class is the most time consuming portion of the project, since OSM data is pretty much useless for that purpose.

make sure you have the latest version (updated yesterday) :p i will look into this airport scenery, but i wont promise anything yet. im going to macedonia this summer, and ill see if i can somehow agree with the authorities so that i could snap some photos around the skopje airport. but thats a big maybe. Ivano Marongiu made skopje airport for FS9. i tried it with FSX - works so and so, trees are displaying black boxes around them, and frame rate drops a lot. maybe he could compile it for FSX.... who knows...

easiest way to make photoreal, is to use Maps2BGL by Gunnar Daehling. all you need to do, is to make kml of the area you want. open that kml file with Maps2BGL, click Download tiles, and after that click Create TGA+patch. just remember that photoreal area covers absolutely everything, you wont even have autogen buildings. you can use Maps2BGL without google earth kml file, but in that case you have to type the corner coordinates manually

in the setup folder you will find maps.ini file. open it with notepad, and look at the "SERVICE=g*****.*** VERSION=&v=74". you need to replace that g*****.*** with google.com. now, last time i tried to download tiles from google, it was blocked, so if it doesntwork, you can try different map services. i know that Bing maps still works. give it a try
