Anyone know where I can find objects for big box stores like Walmart, Lowes, etc

Recommended Posts

I am seeking some scenery library objects for the usually stand-alone big retailers like Wal-Mart, Lowes Building products, etc. I had a file for Winn Dixie (Grocery) Shell Oil (retail gas station) and Walmart that I used a couple of years ago but it evidently did not make it to my current PC and my searches are turned up empty.

 

I am looking to overlay my MegaSceneryEarth V2 with some of these to add a little 3D in the flight paths.

 

Regards,

 

Ray

In Barbourville and Dewitt, in Eastern Kentucky, try my Avsim library offering, Carnes farm...it has an entire the farm house in Dewitt, church,RV, log cabin, runway...annnnd...a shopping center that I paced off , modeled in Gmax and photo'd each store front, back, and sides for texture...and yes Gloria, there IS a Walmart..anchoring the shopping center.

 

Enjoy

Chas,

 

Wow, that is a lot of creative work for some hometown scenery.  Exactly where is the shopping center in relation to K69? I like your ILS private airport in them there hills.

....a labor of love, Ray...take K-69 Rwy 21 8 miles due west->Barbourville Shopping Center

 

Keep in mind, I put up these files as I was having some trouble seeing SOME of them in version two, and I needed you guys to tell me WHICH if ANY of the scenery objects YOU can or CAN'T observe in YOUR P3d setup.., thus I'll be able to better tell if it's just me or if there is a universal file format problem.… in which case I will attempt to fix in ModelConverterX.

 

... So when you report, I need to know what version of P3D you are running.

 

...as per the following:

 

Welcome to Knox County Kentucky!

 

These are the files that I talked about in the Prepar3d forums. I created these objects for Fs9, then upgraded them to the scenery SDK for FSX. They were created 10 years ago in GMAX, and I have used them successfully ever since in Prepared 1.4 as well.

 

For some reason the individual farmhouse and other objects that I created are not showing up in Prepar3d version 2.0.

 

That's where you guys come in! These files are free to use in anyway you want as long as proper attribution is given, but, I would like you guys who have both Prepar3d 1.4 and 2.0 to try them out in both and report back to me as to whether you have the same problems that I do. That's your only fee. And I'd like you guys to give it a shot in both, or all four( I am not sure that they will work in FS9 anymore, but try it out. Unfortunately I can't recompile my FSX SDK Files back to FS9 if it doesn't work).

 

What's included:

 

1. Photo real scenery of Barbourville, 10 miles to the north west of stinking Creek where we live, and;

 

2. Photo real scenery of the farm area and stinking Creek, upon which I have placed my GMAX objects;

 

A. The farm house.Carnes Farm From the Bridge at 500 AGL.jpg

 

B. The barn, shed and the RV in back of the farmhouse.

 

C. A two-story long structure the top of which is an apartment but the bottom of which is a re-creation of Mama Carne's store, along with all the real wood floors shelves and original contents.. It is also o n Google earth in 3-D as it is here with further description .

 

... A little note on Gmax.. Mama Carne's store was one the first structures that I built in Gmax. It was just a box. Later, I added the true architectural features that you see including the steps and rails which took about as long to create as it would have to Saw and fit and hammer the real rails, risers and steps.

 

D. K-6, my little 2300 foot strip for runways 03 and 21. It has VOR - (117.55), ILS(110.1), and NDB(222).

 

E. Gerald Bingham's house, 1/4 mile up Warriors Path North from us.( mostly dirt road with gravel topping).

 

F. Dewitt Baptist Church.

 

Off property Knox county

 

G.Escoe's Store and Post Office complete with great prices for gas at the included pumps.

H. Rex allen's killer corner...sheds and farm equipment on the sharpest bend on Stinking Creek...my son went off it with a flat tire, unscathed, but more than several have lost their lives on that curve... there may be several iterations of the sheds...just delete or rename the wrong ones...I was experimenting with ModelConverterX, Arno Gerretsen's wonderful model and object scenery tool.

 

I. sitting on top of the Barbourville Photo real scenery Barbourville PhotoReal over the shopping center.jpg is the Barbourville P3D Shopping Center2.jpg shopping center all the stores and all the storefronts ... it's on 25 E. as you head into Barbourville.

 

Recreated, is the entire shopping center with the now outmoded Wal-Mart sign. Probably my magnum opus.

 

note on the Gmax scenes.

 

All of the scenery was either directly measured and if not practical for a such a long measuring device, walked off, as in the Stinking Creek Bridge and shopping center. All of the objects were then photographed, in 360° where possible and saved as texture for inclusion in the Gmax model.

 

Enjoy!

 

...oh... how do you get there? Wellllll.... situate yourself at Middlesboro (1a6), and tune your Nav radio to K-69's VOR, 117.55, take off and climb to 3500 feet...grinnnnn
