Oceano County Airport L52 (WIP)

Recommended Posts

Here are a few WIP shots of my current project, Oceano County Airport L52 in California. Anyone who uses PilotEdge will probably recognise this airfield immediately, but for others it is a fantastic little GA airfield near to coast in a very scenic part of the state:

Cessna_172SP_2

Cessna_172SP_3

Cessna_172SP_4

Cessna_172SP_5

Cessna_172SP_6

Cessna_172SP_7

Cessna_172SP_8

Cessna_172SP_9
 

Thanks to many of the on-site photographs provided to me by the airfield, this should be a fairly accurate photoreal representation of L52. I'll also try to include an ortho for the surrounding area with more accurately placed autogen, as the default overlays fills the beach and dunes with trees.

Some additional features for XP11 are normal/PBR maps for many of the buildings which makes them accurately react to the light and adds some nice realism, especially to the hangars

That looks amazing! 

Did you ever release the CA forest mod for ortho? I've really been looking forward to that.

Not yet, I found a large gap in the data (around Oceano out of all places), so I sent them a bug report about it, since the data should be there

Thanks for the update and keep up the good work! Can't wait for L52 as well as I'm a PE user, but I think your forest mod(s) are going to be a game changer with ortho4xp.

Will you be modeling the massive trailer park that sits just beyond the Eastern perimeter?

I'm currently working on the surroundings, at the moment the water treatment plant, so eventually I'll get to it

Very nice work.  This is where XP shines above all else, a strong tools support and a strong community.

Tony...is there some guidance to an ETA, for this fabulous work of yours?

I've gone through 665 bibs...trying to keep my shirt front dry....:(

:-) thanks Mitch.

I'm frustrated at the moment with how X-Plane is making the textures shake like crazy and the weird lighting on the trees which really ruins the airport. The airport is actually mostly finished, but I'm not happy releasing it like that until those shaking bugs are fixed in X-Plane (Supposedly not too long now)

OK Tony...thanks for the update...but I have to tell you...I'd rather 'suffer' shaking this 'n that, and the lighting on the trees...RATHER, than wait for your release.  It looks that good!  Hell, anything you touch is good!!!!!

Thank you very much for all your time and effort to the hobby.  Yes, very much!:ampun:

I also really hope that Laminar fixes the shaking textures and lighting bug soon!

Tony...have you considered releasing this as a pre-release preview?  It looks simply great!

Hi Mitch

Actually I released the first beta to a few simmers yesterday :biggrin:. There are some minor issues still left to fix, but all should be good to go within the next few days I hope.

I love small airports. I know a lot of guys enjoy commercial pilot fantasies flying big iron into big airports. I get that. Those small airports, though, are what fuel my aviation dreams. It was watching a guy do a bunch of touch and goes at small airport that I stumbled on one crisp fall morning that prompted me to get my license.

That other big developers in that other sim is great at capturing the little details that give each airport their unique character. Tony, your work here captures that same magic and may even surpass in the visuals. I can't wait to see it for myself! Outstanding work!

Great comment Chris, this captures exactly why I love to make and fly into these small GA airfields.
