The Wonders of Photoreal Scenery

Recommended Posts

One of the fun things about photoreal scenery (in my case MegaSceneryEath) is finding those out of the way, one very specific place only oddities of real life and how they appear from above. If you have Google Earth you can find out what these patterns really are. Hint: N35 58 37 W 77 47 52 will get you pretty close:

Wow! I just checked the coordinates with Google Earth like you mentioned and that's spot on. What was your altitude in the screenshot Dan?

I was between 5-6000ft msl, descending for landing at Elizabeth City. Yes, everybody that knows can tell but I'm not telling until tomorrow.

I wish default textures could replicate colors this naturally and terrain diversity so accurately!

This seems to be it :) Free flight please :P

 

And the winner is...(insert drum roll) Jesse757 for correctly identifying the Rocky Mt Sports Complex!!! Unfortunately Jesse did not closely read the rules and disclaimers (see my second post above). He actually viewed and commented upon the original post and is therefore ineligible to win the free sim flight to anywhere in the world. Sorry Jesse.

 

Thanks for joining in the fun here. I hope you enjoyed playing along.

 

Hi to Phantom88 ;-)

I am totally enjoying using and discovering the diversity of photoreal scenery despite its' several shortcomings. In another post someone else commented, move left or right 5 miles and there are totally new secrets and scenes to discover.

Yeah I was reading the link provided by Jesse757 above. Seems the only thing left out was an Olympic swimming venue. Quite a deal. With a name like pinlifter are you a RR man??

I was hoping to keep that a secret Dan! I'm a conductor for Norfolk Southern Railroad and was bitten by the airplane bug early on while in the Air Force.

Pinlifter is pretty much a give away to a model RR hobbyist. I used to model WV logging 1910--1920. Think generic but having a basis in fact as to what was used in WV in that era. Not Cass but close
