    Hi Scott, thanks mate. Might have to get norm some crowd funding to do some hi red for the rest of Australia
  5. COMPLETE PR Northern Territory

    Been working away with no Comms for a while big buddy. So nice to see that norm is getting the exposure he deserves.
  6. G'day fello flight simmers. Today I would like to share with you something new and special for the Australian flight simulation community. For many years the demand for PR sceneries and detailed airports and regions has been constantly growing. Now little know developer Norm Gibson from Gibsonsceneries has been toiling away for many thousands of hours to bring us all his first commercial software addon. Like many of us, Norm wanted more from his flight sim experience and has taken his passion to the last frontier of Australia. The Northern Territory. This product is compiled from resampled from 15m Landsat 8 Satellite Imagery produced by Earthstar Geographics, the same Imagery is used in various Commercial and Military Simulators. The goal of Gibson Sceneries is to cover large areas of real scenery at economical prices for the flight simulator enthusiast or professional whether it be for simulating fast Tactical Jet Fighters, Military Transport flights, Commuter and Domestic Airline flights or General Aviation Aircraft flying at medium to high altitudes.The scenery is perfect for enroute flight simulation. Take-off from a detailed airport, climb and fly en-route over "real" world scenery then descend into one of your other detailed airports. This is PR only, so Airports or autogen are not included. But I can say that Aussiex, Ant's, Aerosoft & Orbx sotware package addons work perfectly with this pr. The blends are extremely welldone. The scenery is not suited for low level VFR flights in slow aircraft, although the scenery is acceptable in low and fast Tactical Fighter aircraft.The scenery adds to the realism of simulated flight whether it be for recreating historical missions, commercial airline flights, military training or general aviation interest. This is best suited at this point in time to High altitude flying, be it IFR or VFR as thats where you will get the best and the most out of this package. Shallow coastal water imagery is blended with the simulated water to give a natural look to the coastlines. The PR also shows every real world and existing Airport, airfeild, farm or private strip throughout the entire Northern Territory. This initself allows for the increased development of Third party airfields to be included into this fantastic Package. The PR covers border to border coverage and shows some of the most spectacular locations across the NT. I have spent many hours flying the NT package and throughouly enjoyed every minute of what I see out the window of the aircraft. I love the fact that I can see clearly every creek, river, mountian, key locations such as Kakadu, Lichfeild national park,Mines, Bush fires and the list goes on. If you do decide to do a low level run up one of the many creeks and rivers, just watch out for the crocs.. Ok so lets look at which platforms are supported with this awesome PR package.The PR package is ready for purchase and Downloading for Microsoft Flight Simulator FSX & SE, Lockheed Martin Prepar3d v1, v2, v3 & v4. You can get it buy simply going over to http://www.gibsonsceneries.com and purchasing the NT. The pricing is very reasonable $19.95 USD. If you want to see more of Australia get the PR treatment, then do yourself and your flying experience a favour and get over to Gibson Sceneries and not only support Norm, but also the growth of the Australian flight simulation community. I firmly believe that this is a worthy investment for my flight simulation experience and realistically the $19.95 USD will never cover the cost of the thousands of development hours that has been put into making this package for all of us. Below are a whole series of pictures that I took whilst I was flying all around the NT. These are not the Developers images and do not reflect the quality of his fantastic images that he has taken to showcase this product. Like the old saying is for the NT, If you never never go, you will never never know and no greater statement could be said for this PR package. For those of you who are skeptical about screenshots, there is also a link below which I loved. QANTAS Promotional https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=127&v=qAWNhqI6BWI RAAF C-130 Promotional https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rT58DxRBgIg&t=255s I throughly look forward to getting your feed back and comments on my first impressions of this PR package and certainly look forward to seeing the other states and territories of Australia being done. Remember buy purchasing this product, this not only supports Gibson Sceneries and the Global flight simulation community, but it also significantly contributes to the purchase of more PR for Australia. If there is enough support for the Product, Gibson sceneries may even be able to purchase a much higher Resolution PR supply to truely make our flying experience "As Real As It Gets". A Special Thanks must got out to Norm & Gibson Sceneries for creating a fantastic product.

    George well done mate looks great so far. Can't help with any images but would certainly welcome these two great additions to the ozx fa community. have u tried street view in google earth as a source of reference? keep up the great work
  8. YTWB Toowoomba

    Nice job and a welcome addition

    wow that was cool
  10. Hi Bram, no mate not at all. its better it you use the texture sheet size you want from the start rather than altering the texture size later. As an example if your model file had to go through model converter x (MCX) you could use what ever textures you like, but when it come s time to optimise your texture sheets and minimise your draw calls, there is an option in mcx to get your textures all onto 1 or 2 texture sheets.
  11. Hi Bram, mate I think you will run into texture mapping issues if you change up or down the size without re-setting the mapping.
  12. I have been working on another project for the past 12 months were these models were required to give scale and representation to several real world construction projects. I have been slow converting the models to make them more friendly for use within the sims. What is shown below is perhaps 25% of the models that have been worked on. I am hoping to have these all available soon so that you guys can place them in your own sceneries to give a little bit of something different to your projects. At last count there are well over 500 vehicles, ships,human figures in various poses, boats, aircraft, helicopters, artillery, cam-nets, weapons, equipment and filler objects. So I am sure there will be enough to allow you to create your own scenes with a military flavor. I am currently working on dumbing down the new M.A.N vehicles and the Hawkie vehicles that I have done to get them sim ready. For me this is will be a very long project to get all of teh static vehicles done. Phase two will see the introduction of AI vehicles and phase 3 will be the introduction of ADF vehicles for use with Tacpac or similar, but these are taking some work and costs.
  13. I head Northwest!

    Mate you could almost create a package called unlisted airports of Australia or the Forgotten Airports of Aus...
  14. Looking Just magical mate look forward to giving it a crack
