  2. Image Shack

    Hey all, I see people here using image shack to post pictures. I went to that site and saw a link "Facebook users go here". I clicked it and got to my page with the option of adding the Image shack app. I agreed and was then greeted by a blank page with the only option being "Post a comment" How can I post a comment when I haven't posted the friggin' picture? Grrrr! Any help would be hugely apreciated.

    Hi again, I just got another reply from an email I sent to David Hisdale. Sounds very promising indeed, except it will be a while off. Manfred: We actually had a group use our UK data and create a Microsoft flight simulator package for the full UK. It is really fantastic. In the case of the UK data, we worked with a local company and gave them the data on a royalty basis. For each unit of MS Flight Simulator we get a royalty. We are looking at getting the Australia program going in the next year or so, Once we have the data collected and in archive we would be open to discussions on using it for gaming on a similar basis. If you have a bit of patience we may be able to assist you. As an old fighter pilot I fully understand the enthusiasm that you are putting into this. We have the Adelaide airport and the Adelaide hills (about 20,000 sqkm) at 1 meter vertical with 5 M post spacing. The first sample data will be available next week.

    I did a little searching and found a site that would scan for you. No idea yet on cost but I pasted the email below. Dear Manfred: In answer to your question, yes we have plans to collect a large part of Australia. Currently we have collected some areas in SA in the Adelaide hills area. I would like to know what type of flight simulation applications you have in mind? Would this be gaming or real terrain models for commercial flight simulation? We have done both with partners in other areas. Please let me know your ideas and what type of commercial enterprise you envision so that we can better support you.

I am into flight simulator and at the moment the best we can get is 76m resolution terain. Also, my guess is that buying the data does not actually mean we can do with it as we please. As we are only interested in improving the visual accuracy of the Flight Sim world, what sort of cost would we be looking at? regards Manfred index.php

    Grrr! How about we buy a laser scanner and get our own data? I bet there is someone here who has a pilot's license or knows a pilot. What's one of these fangled things cost?

    Just trying to ease any frustration Butch may be feeling. Does no one know the answer to this?

    Hmm, I am really hoping Wollongong gets done. I have more hard earned $$$ if needed

    As I am gainfully employed and have no life I chipped in $100. I wouldn't mind knowing the target amount either, and maybe a tally on how we are going. Just out of curiosity, if the data exists, how much for all of Australia?
  9. GMAX Help!!!

    OK, looks like I am unable to attach the PDF. I'll email it to you instead.

    Looking great Jorge. I have attached a tutorial I followed to do night textures. It uses Paint Shop program and was very easy to follow. I am not sure what you mean by "do I have to document it anywhere for all to be able to see them after???" As long as the objects you use are in a library that either comes with your scenery or is already in FSX everyone will see it. Mapping posts. All I do is grab all the sides at once and map as one item. Not sure if it is the right way but it works and I can't be bothered trying to do them separately.
  11. Please welcome....

    Hmmm.........ummmmm..........Get a rat up ya! Welcome Matt!
  12. GMAX Help!!!

    Lol Ian, I always wish I could go bigger than 1024 2048 or 4096 would make buildings so much nicer looking. For my YWOL buildings, all the main hangars are 1024 textures. Only when buildings are small do I cram in multiple buildings in the one texture. I guess I will need to address this in my next projects. But with today's graphics cards, are texture sizes still an issue? I thought it was more about those darn verts. But let's not hijack Jorge's thread. Jorge, looking forward to your work.
  13. GMAX Help!!!

    Jorge If you still cannot get it working, I would be happy to try it on my computer if you want. Just send me the gmax model nd the texture map. I don't understand why it is showing up black. If you don't want to send me yours, I'll send you one of mine and you could try getting that to work.
