I have been having good luck with Cultivation for the most part. Unfortunately, my two local cities are only about 5% populated with buildings. Just up the road, Ithaca NY looks awesome!, about 50% populated. I put in a few dozen buildings in my area into OSM, but so far they are not showing. From reading what others have said, it may be a while before they update the servers.
Anyway, on to the questions.
1. I am making airports, but using the default images, no runway decals or custom buildings, I think the runways look more real from the air this way. However, I have a couple of runways that have trees right smack in the middle. How can these be removed? If I create an exclude.kml, will that work for autogen trees?
2. I also have trees growing up through 3d buildings. Any idea how to trim them properly?
3. One thing I noticed while flying is the number of houses with red/orange roofs. In this area, red roofs are not common. Most have grey roofs, with blue and green metal roofs becoming more popular. Right now it is like 5 to 1 red to grey. Is there a setting I can change that, so it is at least more even, maybe even favoring grey?
4. Along those same lines, is there any other building/house texture packs that can be used to give a bigger variety of house and roof colors? I saw some mention of a lot of models in Sketchup, but have not looked at it. Just wondering if anyone had converted some yet.
Thanks for all the help everyone!
