I only heard of this developer through PC Pilot a little while ago, and have been meaning to have a look at, and perhaps purchase some of their sceneries. They develop an excellent version (probably the best FSX version) of Courchevel Airport (LFLJ) which is famous for being a dangerous airport with it's ski ramp runway. I just found their website the other day, and it turned out to be good timing, as they currently have a sale with 25% off all sceneries, until July14th 2015. Cheers,
Hi, Here are a few pics of a project I have been working on for several months. It is a PR scenery of France, and will also include Switzerland and Luxembourg. I started this project late last year as I found some freeware PR for Italy, Spain, Belgium, and of course the Netherlands (NL2000). I also found a lot of freeware airports, autogen and 3d models done for France, but limited free PR, so I decided to make my own. I have been downloading tiles for most of that time, but I now have the entire area done without water masking and blend masking. I have discovered several shortcuts by using batch files and command lines to, for example, change the name of files in a folder, and certain text, using a command line. I have also recently discovered (with the help of Gary and Arno at FSDeveloper) a method of using shapefile data to create a watermask. I was originally only going to watermask the coast, but now I have found a fairly good waterways shapefile for Europe, and have started doing the lakes rivers etc too. I amm still doing a rough blend mask by hand, but this isn't very hard as I'm blending out in the ocean. I am seeing problems with the coastline shapefile, as it's not completely accurate, but it looks ok until you look really close. I am actually going to see if I can find a more accurate coastline shapefile before I continue with the coastal water masking. There is a 20+GB shapefile download available from Open street map and Geofabrik ( http://download.geofabrik.de/), which I am hoping may contain a more accurate shapefile. I am not too sure if it can be done completely accurately with a shapefile though, as the coastline will always be changing shape and length due to the tide, waves etc. Anyway, here are a few pics of my progress so far: Cheers,
