  • THANK YOU to those who have given me the thumbs up, its given me the encouragement to continue with this project, I have hand edited over 2000 white clouds and black shadows from the satellite images, its been absolutely horrendous at times. I got there in the end. Its NOT perfect by any means, yes I missed a few clouds and shadows. Hope you enjoy it anyway.


    Kindest regards to all, Michael.

    Any effort is very worthwhile!

    Thank you for making all these regions available I can fly in several places thanks to the good will of many here in the forum, I hope one day to have more time to be able to contribute with new regions!

  • NEW ZEALAND - NORTH ISLAND AIRPORTS


    Photo scenery of the 13 airports offered courtesy of "fscloudport" made in 0.5 M per PIX level 14 and 15.


    The airport files have been edited to remove the grey runways.

  • Great work! I'm having a few issues with runways. For a few airports like NZAA and NZWN, the runway loads fine, however on others like NZWP, there is no runway overlaying the mesh, and therefore the runway is uneven ground.


    I have all of the runway folders in Aerofly FS 2\scenery\places\airports, and the airport texture folders in scenery\images.


    Any help would be great.

    NZWP - This is what it looks like in my flight simulator. The ONLY modifications I made was to deactivate the grey RW images. I have no knowledge on how to flatten the area.

    Ah, excellent. I thought it may have been an issue on my end. No worries at all. I assume the lack of a flat runway is connected to the original cloudport airport files. Its a shame that there isn't an easy make to make runways flat/level.

    Perhaps there is a way, lets see if the experts are interested.

  • Airports are not flat, and runways are not level from end to end. They are not visible from 100km, either.

    For years we begged flightsim makers to give us realistic naturally sloping runways. AFS2 does that. Why make it all artificially flat again?

    I wish we had access to the sort of satellite imagery that can read the number plate on your car, but that is only available to the military, so we will have to live with the very low-res appearance of the surface when the plane is on the ground.
