Scenery Design Tutorial 1.0

29 posts in this topic

Posted

This first scenery design tutorial was going to be released through ORBX last week, but got caught up in this new initiative, so we will now be releasing it here. The second tutorial 2.0 will also be released here in a fortnight or so. Priority will be getting the freeware bush strips from 1.2 re-released here, but the tutorial should follow soon after I hope. It's all packaged ready to go, except it needs a new OZX cover icon_e_smile.gif

cheers and thanks for the patience all...

Prof

Thank you Prof!

I hope this will really open the floodgates for lots of airports. Is there a list where we can see what people are working on so as to not to duplicate precious talents and development time?

Looking forward to reading your tutorial almost as much as flying !

Kind Regards and God bless

Alfred

P.S: How do I get the smilies working. I am using SAFARI Browser?

It's a bit hidden, but please see board above for the scenery tutorial. Let me know how you find it, and what improvements we can make to it. Now that's written, I'm off to start another strip icon_e_wink.gif

I've tried the tutorial, but I can't get fsxget to work with FSX, it sits there saying FSX Ecxception after saying it's connected, and then sits there waiting for connection.

I can't find anything to say how to fix this, any ideas? Or is there another program that does the same kind of thing?

There should be no problem getting FSXGet to work, especially when it's saying it has connected. Perhaps someone here can help, but in the meantime look through the options of FSXGet to see if you have something strange checked.

Pretty sure there's some payware FSX-GE Connector - can't find it just now.

Something called "Yet Another Google Earth Tool.(v0.94). YAGET FSX" as well.

I must be blind, I can't find the tutorial anywhere, maybe I've failed the first test, finding the tutorial.

kman: I agree, it's hard to find. When you first open Community Scenery Design Workshop, you'll see there's a section called Freeware Scenery Submissions above the various topics listed in this part of the forum. It's there, in Freeware Scenery Submissions. Maybe we should call it Freeware Scenery Submissions and Developer Guides. I was going to put the link to the tutorial here in this post, but I can't attach anything here.

cheers

I've been following this tutorial, which is really well written and I have enjoyed coming to grips with SBuilderX for the 1st time. Thanks very much Prof for the painstaking effort that you've put into this.

I have got myself successfully down past making all the Photoshop files and have reached 'Compile the Photoreal Background'. I have selected the image & pressed the compile button & the .bgl file & the Photo01.inf file have been created ok. The tutorial now says 'Open the photo.inf file and the appropriate SBX .inf file'. I dont know what the appropriate SBX file is and would appreciate some help here. I guess it's probably blindinly obvious but I am not giving up on this project, even if it means looking silly from time to time...

Sandy, try this, and let me know if you have success. It is to work with an ORBX Blue location.

Oh I see, you use the .inf file sample as the approporiate sbx.inf file and ammend it with the information specific to the new project. Thanks for the attachment above too - between the two of them I should be able to make a stab at it today. Thank you for the very fast reply Prof.
