Buenos Aires city skyline scenery?

Recommended Posts

Is there any scenery out there for the city (maybe landclass as well)?  I've looked and found nothing, the airport is well covered...

 

Thx.

Moving South of the Equator?  First New Zealand, now Buenos Aires?

I'm interested in this, too, and also in a good scenery for SABE Aeroparque Jorge Newberry.

Thanks

 

 


First New Zealand, now Buenos Aires?

 

Aerolineas Argentinas once had a connection between Auckland and Buenos Aires, and LAN still maintains a connection between Sydney and Santiago via Auckland. So what's the problem?

Some of us actually live south of the equator - is that a problem?

 

Ya ..... it appears that there is no SENSE of HUMOR there.  My comment was meant for Dillon regarding his last two requests for scenery files.

 

..... but since I have your attention ..... "A Dingo ate your baby."

 

 

So what's the problem?

 

Lighten up, Harold.  Try to catch up to the Humor Wagon ..... it's getting away from you

At least the question in his first post here sounds rather innocent to me.

I found this funny...  B)

 

Quick answer to you question is 'No', since I finally bothered, had the time, and found NZ scenery that I didn't think was out there I thought I'd try for another neglected area.  In this case we have nice airport scenery by a few designers but no one bothered to address the city.  It makes no since flying into a detail airport when the surrounding scenery is below default standards.  Buenos Aires actually has allot to offer scenery wise when flying over the real city but you won't see that in FS9/FSX/P3D's rendition.  Just like default New Zealand it looks basically like crap and takes away from landing there.  So again I thought I'd ask since I had so much success getting NZ looking the way it should in FS9.  

 

What amazes me is after all this time we still don't have scenery for NZAA both freeware and payware.  If it wasn't for a smart guy that had FSX and FS9 who took the FSX version and made it work in FS9 there wouldn't be anything (for most there isn't anything especially in FS9).  With help from FS Scenery Creator the rendition I have now looks great.  For such a major airport it has a small unorganized feel to it.  One runway doubles as a taxiway and is never used because there is not taxiway to get the job done, etc (I checked Google Earth and Youtube to confirm).  Operations around that airport is unique for the mission it has yet no one will ever see this because it's been all but forgotten in FS circles... So why not see if Buenos Aires has something out there.  I got a whole country looking great can I get just one city looking the way it should?   :P  

Some of us actually live south of the equator - is that a problem?

 

Speaking of that I hear NZ is a little hard on outsiders especially non-European looking people.  Oz by contrast is reported to be much different.  Since a joke was made above about my desire to move south I was actually looking at visiting there (Hobbiton among other areas)  sometime in the future but if it's an unfriendly place to outsiders I'll pass.  Both Oz and NZ are amazing places scenery wise just the same, people on the other hand... Well I'll leave it at that.  :Whistle:

I know, I'm Gerrrrman.

No, I just wanted to lighten up the practical aspect :P Sorry for sounding unhumorous.

Is there really a good rendition of SABE? The best I found so far is the X-ARG version from 2005...

Nope... Unfortunately.

 

Fly Tampa had the best approach with TNCM, they just did the whole area which works out really well.  Some areas need that like NYC.

Back to topic: there are two scenery packs that complement each other and give a rather accurate look of Buenos Aires and the Aeroparque (as I could see last weekend hehe): one is VFR Argentina and other is X-ARG. Sadly I can't recall any land class for Argentina.

 

I'm currently going back home, I'll give you links as soon as I arrive.

Are they for FS9?

Yes, it's for FS9 (well, it runs on my laptop). Both scenery packs can be downloaded from http://vfrarg.blogspot.com.ar/. In the right pane, check for the following:

 

Pueden Descargar X-Arg del Siguiente Link: X-ARG 1.5.1

DESCARGAR VFRA0.99

ÚLTIMO PARCHE

 

The first one is for X-ARG, the latter 2 are for VFR Argentina. Hope this helps.

Dillon, thanks for pointing it out. I've just checked the links, only the "Último parche" works. However, I found links to this somewhere else:

 

X-ARG 1.5.1: http://www.flightsimulatorarg.com.ar/escenarios4.htm, the Download button after "Aeroparque "Jorge Newbery"-SABE-Ciudad de Buenos Aires para FS2004 -Autores: X-ARG (Proyecto Open Source dirigido por Martín Alaimo) - V 1.5.1".

 

VFRA: http://www.flightsimulatorarg.com.ar/escenarios7.htm. Look after where it says "A continuación las referencias visuales de vuelo de la República Argentina (VFRA)". The Download button is after the night downtown screenshot.

 

Hope this helps... and specially hope your Spanish is good enough for reading all the stuff posted there.

Luis Miguel,

 

muchos gracias para indicar esto sitio con los mas buenos escenarios Argentinos. Ellos son un buen recuerdo de mis vacaciones grandiosos en Chile y Argentina some years ago (where is my Spanish left...).

 

And if someone asks for Chilean sceneries now: http://fsseleccion.com/

Unfortunately not updated for some time, but some sceneries (for instance Temuco) are still quite good.

 

Gracias,

Harald

Old thread but thought best to post here...

 

While on my South American search for Airports as of late I came across this rather detailed freeware version of SABE if anyone is interested, http://francocordobafsa.blogspot.com.au/ (The shots shown on his blog are of version 1 but the download is for v1.2 as shown in my screenshot below)

To get a better landclass + cityscape I used the XARG and just removed the BGLs associated with the actually field and made sure it was at a lower priority in my scenery cfg then SABE

Flukey, you have finally pointed us to a real good version of SABE. Installed it, it fits perfectly with the X-ARG cityscape.

 

Many thanks!
