it's about modeling huge amounts of OSM data. I understand that the libraries that transform OSM data into cultivation of AFS2 are unfortunately very poor .... having only rectangular elements available ....... are there also cylindrical elements?!? Modifying in a timely manner with the excellent editor of Nabeel seems to me a truly colossal job !!
In XPLANE the World-model library is very powerful and generates rich and photorealistic scenarios ..... maybe AFS2 has to grow again ....
I'm trying to make cultivation .... without success. I used:
1) OSM data from Openstreet Map
2) the Scenproc ver2 software
4) the TSC file that I attach
5) the building_textures folder found in all cultivations distributed on the Internet (https://flight-sim.org/).
The results are really poor.
Is there a way to change the shape of the Europe style roofs to the USA style? (Staten Island-New York)
Is there a way to personalize the textures of the houses?
I attach image google map of the same area and FS2 screenshots
This is the link to Openstreetmap area.
I was thinking of putting a "Cultivation Tutorial" together as I like many found very little information about how to do it.
If anyone is interested shout!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Where i find a template TSC file for generate cultivation?
Sorry but I can not find the information anywhere.... is it possible to have a template for the TSC file?
This is the skeleton of the directory that contains the scenario:
I think you mean the low res textures due to low res satellite images. The buildings and landclass are fantastic and yes, I also hope to see more High Res. Sat images in the future...
Aerofly FS2 is great! Absolutely amazing!!
For the ground textures there is still work to be done, now I try with Aeroscenery to realize ground texture with higher resolution ...... someone tried? Tips?
I do not think it's about the video card settings ....... what resolution do NY textures have? Flying at high altitude there are no problems but helicopter .....
The Cultivation for Switzerland also include trees?
Is it better to delete default trees of DLC in the directory Vegetation?
The scenery of New York is very very beautiful!!
However, when flying at low altitude (around 800-1000ft) the texture quality is poor. I wanted to know if you are planning to increase the quality of the textures, I also wanted to know if you ever updated the New York scenary .... Thanks
I did some investigations regarding the default trees.
They are all defined in the folder 'vegetation' which can be found in the scenery folder of aerofly. The defintions of the trees in Switzerland are at the end and start with the file 'mapt_10_8400_a540.ttc' down to file 'mapt_10_8740_a640.ttc'. The numbers 8400 to 8740 define stripes from west to east and the figures a500 to a700 define parts of these north-south stripes. With some trials I found out that the file 'mapt_10_8540_a600.ttc' defines a region around Berne. The file parts like 'a500' or 'a5c0' look like hexadecimal figures and can be changed into decimal figures. Definitely they define the north-south sequence. I have moved these swiss tree definiton files into a separate folder in my documents folder called vegetation. Now I can exclude regions by renaming one or more files to .bak. Like this I can replace that region by a toc-file generated from OSM data with better tree coverage.
The picture below shows the border of the 8540 stripe west of Berne looking north.
This exists and must be converted to aerofly format with the allowance of the author if published. But for personal use I guess this is possible.
This is possible with a tool like JOSM where the OSM data can be edited. You need to remove the parts of e.g. the highway you do not want to be illuminated. Then by the process of ScenProc the removed parts will not have light points anymore. An awful lot of work. Mybe as a managed joint project with people from this forum.
Regarding OSM and JOSM I have a question: does someone understand how the OSM data can be filtered when downloading. I have read it is possible but I did not understand the coding. I think it would be very useful to just download data you need e.g. streets, trees, forests etc. If you have downloaded just the streets the handling and editing in JOSM would be much easier.
TomB what is the algorithm to know the geographic coordinates of a ttc file? Thank you!
