Hi,

It's good to see so many responses from people to this thread. Welcome to you all.

In response to a few questions and or mentions

In the past, I downloaded files from Nearmap as either .ecw files, which can be converted to .bmp or .tif files, or I think they could also be downloaded as Geotiff files (TIFF image file with geographical info ie coordinates embedded in the file). This was prior to their change in business structure though, so I really have no idea what the downloading is like now.

Regarding sketchup, I have also heard about models being hard on frame rates, but I have never noticed anything or seen any hard data to support this. That's all I know, that I have heard that sketchup is hard on frame rates. You never know, maybe autodesk started this vicious rumour. :rolleyes:

Regarding my ideas, I'll probably have to post back about that. Maybe YBSS Bacchus Marsh, which is not far from Melton Airport which I am currently doing. I am currently working on a Mount Buffalo photographic scenery, and I wouldn't mind seeing some more areas done in the Australian Alps. I would also like to do a photographic Grampians National Park scenery. I would also like to do some work to the Port Phillip heads.

I have also downloaded some imagery around Victor Harbour in SA, and will download some more, so that would be another area I wouldn't mind seeing in the sim.

Cheers,

@ Scott & Gazza, and Cbird, (and any other guys I have missed from this thread)

I know Gazza doesnt have teamspeak, but not sure if the other guys do.....If not have a look here.

http://www.teamspeak.com/?page=downloads

detils here on the OZX server, and details to setup.

http://www.tsviewer.com/index.php?page=ts_viewer&ID=18708

Install and run teamspeak, and put the details in from the link above, and away you go. All you need is a mic, and if you use skype, then you may already have one

If you get stuck, then post back here and we'll help.

I'll be there to chat tonight.

Hi Johnny, yes mate, there is just a few other projects to clear at the moment. Wellcamp, Mt Isa, Parks, Broken Hill, Bathurst Island etc. They are all taking a little bit of time. To put it out there, I would like to kick the new year off with Getting Oakey started and completed by End of March, then Whitsundays complete Island Group with All airports to be completed by end June. I am currently also working on Models for Shoalwater Bay and the  Airstrips and numerous helicopter landing points.

Have you ever done any Object modelling or used Sbuilder for PR work before? If not not a problem and we can always do with researchers.... Im sure that there will be a way of getting you involved in the projects.

Good to see that this thread is coming back to life..I hope that there is something I can do to help. I have to point out though that I cannot help with design, as I am too shaky to even control the mouse properly, but if there is anything at all I can do please let me know, as I have time in abundance to offer..Terry (Teecee)

Guys I need some researchers for the next project. The next project is Oakey. Anything and everything on the airfield, plans or blueprints a bonus. land marks around the region, I would lie to include the whole township area in the PR but it will depend on if the imagery is any good.

I also need a whole bunch of models and hopefully these are readily available which will save a bucket load of time. All ADF aircraft and in particular Army Aviation.. GAF Nomad, Kiowa, Blackhawk, Nh 90, Aus-tiger, huey, squirrel, chinook. Any contribution that can be made will be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, feel free to give me a shout...

Hi Gazza,

Unfortunately I haven't done any object modelling but can always learn pretty quick. Happy to step up if needed but happy to help with researching if need be. Just let me know what you need ^_^

Found this thread while looking for an update to YBMK doing a milk run in the Q400!

More than happy for you to get photos ...happy to add these to the OZX library. When taking photos of buildings, see if you can get them square on...easier to build buildings when everything is square on or close to it. You may not be able to get all sides but we can sometimes make up the missing bits. Not sure what you can get from the airside parts of airports, but anything may help. 

Anyway, it's up to what you want to do.

Emerald would be nice! A lot of development has gone into that town recently. I have photos of a motel and could possibly do that.

 

I can pitch in and help.

 

I have tried to message (Flukey I think?) one of the WA Developers that has been doing to NW airports and I found I couldn't message anyone. Maybe because I am a new member?

 

I have had Orbx AU since 2012. And late last year bought some more on special (End of year sale).

 

I would like to do Kalgoorlie ( have flown there in real life as pilot and passenger and worked there-have photos but not of the airport-there are some online which could be used for reference), Northam, Perth YPPH and some others in WA.

 

I have learnt how to use the autogen annotator (barely, would like to know how how to place 'bulk' houses?) and I think Sbuilderx has object placement? 

 

Object placement is my next skill I need to learn.

 

Advice welcome.

My one question is, USGS is one of the freeware data we can freely use in order to distribute? I want to cover my legal bases well, and preparatory work.

 

I would also like to do some objects for Perth like the grain silos in Forrestfield, Cement tower at Cockburn Cement and the new stadium, as well as a few buildings in the CBD (like new BHP-Brookefield Place). [Name a few others anyone?]

 

I use Blender and have never imported a building into FSX, yet. I need to make something first.

 

Right now I would like to do some photo real scenery surrounding some towns in Australia and have accurate auto gen and objects with a decent looking airport.

 

Right now this forum seems a little quiet so here is hoping for a little more action.

 

Thanks for any answers.

 

Cheers

 

Daniel

Hi Daniel,

You seem enthusiast about developing scenery which is great. The developers, understandably have holidays etc at this time of year. Another factor is what Orbx are going to do with Australian scenery v2, which is completely unknown to us at this time.

Regardless, now is a great time to learn the tools of the trade, such that when OZv2 is released you are up to speed with developing scenery.

As a fellow WA person, local developers are always of interest. ^_^

If you would like to chat on the Discord channel, I would be interested to talk with you.

I have no idea why I didn't respond to this earlier...you can just place the files in a Dropbox with a link, and we can download them. If you prefer, send the dropbox link in a private message. Jpg is fine as it sounds like they are fairly hi res.  As Trev has said, I think we are waiting until we see what happens with the ORBX AU update.
