Looking for photo scenery for Hawaii's Big Island

Recommended Posts

I am trying to complete the Hawaiian Islands region and so far I have the following add-ons for it:

 

FSDT Honolulu Airport

FSDT Hawaiian Vol 1 and 2 Airports

Megascenery Oahu (Hawaii)

Newport Scenery Maui

Newport Scenery Kaui

Newport Scenery Molokai

Newport Scenery Lanai

Aerosoft Dillingham X

 

That pretty much covers a majority of the region, however I can't seem to find any photo scenery for The Big Island. Does anyone know where I may find one?

I think there is a lack of source data (at least free data).  There's some around Hilo though.

Newport Scenery Maui
Newport Scenery Kaui
Newport Scenery Molokai
Newport Scenery Lanai

 

How good are these? are they as good as Mega scenery O'ahu?

Yup I would say they are pretty good. Although I wish there would be a MegaSceneryEarth v2.0 that covers the ENTIRE Hawaiian regions. But this will do for now.

MegaSceneryEarth v2.0 that covers the ENTIRE Hawaiian regions

 

I am not sure I'd want that.. without night options and no autogens? Hmmm,.....  I much prefer what they have for O'ahu.  However, we could use the autogens from their current O'ahu and merge it with a higher resolution O'ahu then that may work.

 

But Hawaii without autogens means I have to just fly over it and not land. :)

True, I didn't think about the autogen. I also like autogen layed on top of photo real, gives a much more realistic and immersive feel than without.

You are missing Kahoolawe, Niihau and Lehua islands. They are all available. I think here or on lock on files. Did you get the Maui add-on that adds Harbors, Resorts and POI's. Josh

I got Niihau on here, where is Lehua and Kahoolawe? I couldn't find those. I believe I got the Oahu and Maui add-on from here.but could you link me those. I'd love to complete my Hawaii region. :)

There's a freeware photoreal for Maui that I found on YouTube - they're making one for the Big Island although it may take some time.

Thanks Josh! Wish I knew about these before I purchased the Newport Scenery. :( I wonder how this compares to it. Looks fantastic for freeware so far.

I finished downloading them all, I used the mediafire links. However where is Lehua island, I don't see that anywhere. Also whose making The Big Island?

I think Lehua island is part of Niihau. I think the same guy is making it. What program did you use to un zip Josh

I used jdownloader and it has a built-in unarchiver. 

 

I see there's also Ironscenery Kauai as well. The only downside to this scenery are the clouds that are part of the textures. But if it wasn't for that, I can say that it's better than Newport Scenery! Wow.

That was last year though, I hope they're still going to do it.

It was only two months ago, last I checked.

For the record, there WILL be a MegaSceneryEarth 2.0 Hawaii coming out "soon". I don't have all the details but will try and find out from the project manager if all of the islands will be covered in this version.
