    Sorry for asking, but it was supposed to add a photorealistic areas in some portion of the island that were not previously covered, or I'm wrong or confused?.

    Cheers, Ed

  • it seems that I need to remove the update so will get it removed and look at .

    Probably not. The syntax error indicated by Thomas made LGSM appear again. If that’s the only issue maybe just want to release an updated lgsm.tsc file for everyone.

    Excellent work, by the way.

    Cheers, Ed

    Hay ed I re done the orthos but when the water masking was done , the standard photo scenery showed through, and looked like a right mess ,so looks like I'm going to have to redo them again and make a larger area of the orthos to cover .

    Hi Brunnobellic,


    Yes, water mask is always an issue in AFS2 due to lack of both:

    - a water texture in AFS2

    - decent orthophoto for the sea


    As a result, the only workaround in many cases is tho paint the sea, far enough from the coast to blend with deep sea without masks.


    Since default terrain is an harmonized low res satellite picture, there's no universal deep sea color that'll blend seamlessly anywhere.

    In many places I was however successful using R0G11B24, you may try this color as a start point and fine tune if necessary (or, worst case, you'll have to search for another color if the deep sea in Greece is very different from the ocean).


    Cheers

    Exactly:

    Activating watermasking in AeroScenery helps against white areas, but not against Googles bright blue areas.

    You even can see structures in the IPACS "standard" color, which is a lowres satellite pic as Antoine mentioned.


    Painting with a soft brush set to the lowres satellite color towards the white line might be the best strategy nevertheless.
