New Zealand - North Island

  • Michael, this has long been greatly needed. I let the members at NZFF know that you had released it. I created some locations around my Auckland, following Kristoff's method. Please feel free to adapt them to your scenery. You should still have access, but if you don't, let me know. and I will send you a fresh link. Sad to say, someone - not you - seems to have passed on the earlier link, without permission.


    Thanks and best wishes

  • Thanks MikeW that's very good of you. I have been experimenting using different levels, resolutions and found a way, I think, of producing some good images less white clouds and black shadows, watch this space for further image updates. Kindest regards and best wishes, Michael. PS. Not as easy as I first thought. :(

  • 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.

    Indeed, however in the game and using NZWP as an example, the terrain is extremely uneven to the point the plane bounces up and down when taking off. I agree realistic sloping runways are great, however at the moment there are certain airports that have the satellite image of the runway over uneven terrain (compared to the likes of NZAA).

    NZWP - I have just tested taking off from both runways in a Cessna 172 and no problems at all.Have you installed correctly the 8 M terrain mesh courtesy of "Geoffkiwi" from here: https://flight-sim.org/filebas…-8m-levels-9-10-11-12-13/
