  1. Hi Gazza, Thanks for the remark. I am rather unexperienced in this kind of work, Do you mean, I better stop texturing untill the final size of objects has been decided ? Thanks in advance! Bram
  2. Shaped the pedetrian areas at the entrance side of the terminal. Did some texturing too, but this is new for me, needs improvement... Does anyone know: if I use 1024x1024 textures in FSDS, can I just replace them later by 2048x2048 textures? Thanks for your help. Greetings! Bram
  3. A small update with some lowres screenshots.(for some items it is all I have got at the moment). A person who's working at Gove Airport, explained me, this area at the field is from the meteorological department of the airport. The white tower with the globe, is a weatherradar. I also worked out more details at the WW2 traffictower. I did not manage to insert the screens, so I took the attachment solution. Greetings! Bram
  4. Hi Flukey,

    Quite understandable and good choice to keep your family at the first place.
    I will do my best, won't be fast but I will put updates at the forum, now and then.
    Is it okay if I pose you scenery devellopment technical questions ?
    Always feel free to postpone replying if you lack on energy or time, okay ?

    Kind regards and strenght and peace in the coming weeks!

  5. O, that is good news ! Thanks, Teecee! Greetings, Bram
  6. Could it help, if we ask Orbx to adapt the Nothern Territory to a more closer to reality landclass version ? Has anyone experience with such requests to Orbx?
  7. Hi Flukey, thanks for posting these screenshots. It is really good looking groundwork. Not the faintest idea how you manage such an underground. I see, there is a lot to learn. I have PM'd you earlier this afternoon (afternoon, here in the Netherlands) Great work !
  8. Can't refind the picture I once saw, but many variations at this design are possible. It exists of some treestems, some vertical poles and stones to keep it together and a few stepboards.
  9. Not any problem for me, TeeCee. I am very happy Flukey is doing Gove and I am very curioous. I intended to do some nice locations in the surroundings too, if reachable for me. I have seen a picture of a nearby stream with a very primitive treestem-bridge over it, which I have modelled too. Flukey, are you almost finished.already or is there still a lot of work to do ? I you would allow me to do some modelling for it, I would really appreciate that. But feel absolutely free to say no, ofcourse. Would you be willing to show some screenshots already of your Gove project? KInd regards! Bram
  10. Hi Tree Tops, Thanks for reply and the movement of the topic. Very curious how far Flukey is in the devellopment.! KInd regards, Bram
  11. Though I do not have much experience yet in creating or upgrading an airport, I have recently started to build several recognizable buildings and other groundobjects at Gove airport. I do this with Abacus' FS Design Studio 3.5 Gove airport is a small but very much alive airport, mainly used by the nearby located raffinery and the nearby miningcompany, which is also the owner of the airport. It is a former ww2 airbase, now used for business travel and by the planes of Mission Aviation Fellowship, who serve many Aboriginal village communities in the Northern Territory. Most eyecatching is the small terminal building, in which Aboriginal art shapes have been used. I also am modifying the existing default FSX airport with a Google screenshot background for the sizes and locations (not as a photoscenery). One of the challenges I meet there, is that FSX does not have the typical red soil textures in its default ground textures. Does anybody know, if it is possible to create a groundpolygon with a self created texture? Thanks for any help and advise, Kind regards, Bram Stikkel
  12. Papua bushlanding on YouTube

    To the video If you are interested in a short but nice vid about a bushlanding on a really small, rather uphill and mountainsurrounded bushstrip, here's a nice YouTube link for you . Is it possible to create in FSX such uphill landingstrips, by the way ? See you later in the air ! Bram Stikkel
  13. Hi airport devellopers, I suppose you have plenty of these kind of requests, but I hope you can 'manage' them without feeling to much pressure. Guessing you are able to do so - there is not any pressure ofcourse, it is a request - I throw one more on the heap. Interested by the work of MAF, a christian Mission Aviation organisation that works in aerea's like Papua New Guinea, The Northern Territory and many more places all over the world. They happen to have the airfield Gove as one of their bases, so that's why I would appreciate if somebody would see if it is a lot of work to re-create airfield. The default FSX version does not even look a little bit like the real one, except for the one runway. There is a very exclusive airport-entrance building at Gove, accoording to several on the internet available pictures. I add some Google Earth screenshots here and one picture of a part of the entrancebuilding. As you can see, the airfield is surrounded by a very interesting line pattern of - I suppose - small roads (?) If someone could create it in the same wonderfull style as the Ozx airfields are created, I would very appreciate. Greetings, Bram Stikkel www.mafsim.com
  14. Cape Leveque

    Hi folks, I received the solution to the mystery of the unmatching type of shape. The picture I thought it represented Cape Leveque, is actually Long Puak, East Kalimantan, Indonesia. The object is an evaluation of a new airstrip. Photo is taken by Dan Appleby. It actually is a part of the original picture, that you can find here: http://www.msisafety.org/. As you can see at the original, there a more 'steps' in the airstrip. Sorry for bothering you all Should have done my homework better . Anyhow, the challenge of recreating a challenging airstrip is there now, Treeman. I will do an internetsearch first, just in case it is available already. I so, I will inform you all here. Greetings, Bram Stikkel
  15. Cape Leveque

    Hi Dennis, Thanks for your explaination. I have great admiration for all you guys of OZx, creating all that really georgeous extra airstrips for Australia (withor without FTX) What is your estimation (you have seen it in real life): The picture I posted - the last one - is this Cape Leveque or am I mistaken in that? If it is, it must be the ocean-side and a very much less strait strip. Greetings, Bram
