Hi all,

Probably worth checking out Aerosim's website. (... )  Anyway, here's a link to their site: http://www.aerosim.co.jp/

I am just returning from a long vacation in Japan (rented a camper van :cool:, visited Osaka and Haneda for spotting, among other sightseeing) so I am upgrading my sim with Japanese airports. So I can report that the Aerosim airports are nice and seem to be working quite well in P3D v4.

In particular, I have just bought RJBE (Kobe) airport on the Aerosim website - they have regnow.com as a reseller for the download versions and this is working quite well. RJBE is installing (by default) into the FSX directory, but when pointing P3D v4 to that directory, or copy the files over, RJBE is working beautifully in P3D v4.

Note that Technobrains's RJTT (Haneda) and RJOY (Osaka City and Yao Airport) are also available in online shops, albeit Japanese shops only (use google translate).

Hi Markus,

is it possible to buy Technoirain's RJTT from their webshop and is it available as a download? I tried 

http://www.technobrain.com/fsaddon/fscrjtt2/

however I am completely lost how to handle their webshop (even after having Google sort of translating the page).

Thank you and kind regards, Michael

Hallo Michael,

sorry, I got confused too. I just checked again and indeed, "Osaka City and Yao Airport" is available for download on airshop.co.jp (but I haven't done so [yet]) but not RJTT/Haneda. What is available is a Mission scenario based at Haneda which apparently requires RJTT (CD-Rom version) installed. Airshop.co.jp only ships domestically, unfortunately.

But checking now, while I'm writing, I noticed that RJTT is available from Amazon Japan  at https://www.amazon.co.jp/テクノブレイン-FSアドオンコレクション-東京国際空港2/dp/B00M2BVFUO . Apparently, Amazon Japan is shipping globally in 65 countries for a fee of roughly JPY 1000 (about EUR 8,-), plus a product cost of JPY 5250 (about EUR 40,-).

Thanks Markus. So no download version in 2017...

If I am not mistaken, one of the quality developers (with international download and distribution) has been working on RJTT. I forgot who it was, I think I saw it mentioned on AirdailyX once, so probably I will wait for this one.

However, I am seriouly thinking about Kyoto if it works in Prepar3d4 and is available via a normal distribution channel, although it's all but cheap, too.

Kind regards, Michael

Hi Michael,

I've just placed an order with amazon.co.jp. Let's see what happens. :cool: 

If I'm not wrong the competitor for RJTT was Wing Creation who announced RJTT on their Facebook page.

By the way, at least for Osaka City (not the General Aviation airport RJOY) there is a freeware alternative - which is very good - at http://fsx.o.oo7.jp/ . It has some nice models e.g. of Osaka castle and large parts of the city and seems to do an equally good job. If you don't really need the airport (most airline traffic is handled at the other airports, RJOO and RJBB), this freeware package might work, too. They also have a Kyoto scenery...

Yes, I know that site. They also provide a Tokyo Scenery and some others which I used before. Unfortunately, their aerial images are very low-res compared to today's standard, thus I prefer Haruo's Landclass as a base. However, you are right, they have some really good models indeed. When I experimented with them some years ago, it was possible to just use the models and forget about the aerial images. Might be worth trying again.

Kind regards, Michael

Would definitely try that a just have the models appear.

Anyone know of P3dV4 compatible airports for Japan? Kansai RJBB, Narita RJAA, Chubu Centrair RJGG, Haneda RJTT. Could never understand why Japan always seemed to be ignored in the airport scenery category. I saw some over at SimMarket but are old and outdated.

 

I am using below sceneries.    freewarescenery.com/fsx/japan.html

Hi all,

 

I live in Japan and am a former developer for an old simulator.

 

I've been interested in doing scenery work for FSX/P3D for a long time but have never quite figured out the tools people are using, especially to reliably get satellite imagery. I developed a scenery for CAP3 (Sechelt Gibsons) which looked beautiful but the tool necessary to download the sat images was a royal pain in the word not allowed to use, full of bugs, crashes, weird sizing problems etc.

 

If there is anyone who has experience making scenery and would not mind teaching me the basics, I would be willing to do Japanese scenery, especially the water masks and such. I would also be willing to do stuff like sloped runways and proper taxiways if someone could teach me what needs to be done to make that work in P3D. I am afraid I am not much of a 3d modeler though, so I will leave the buildings to someone else.

 

It is really unfortunate that Japan is so neglected - Korea too. The sheer number of mountains, high humidity in summer, and plenty of coastlines make for very interesting VFR flying. Mt. Fuji is beautiful but you wouldn't know it looking at the stock scenery. There needs to be a lot more satellite imagery around Japan.

sucess!

My parcel from amazon.co.jp with Technobrain's Tokyo-Haneda (RJTT) v2 scenery on CD-ROM arrived today at my place. It took me a couple of minutes to run through the Japanese language installer (and many more minutes to complete the - optional - user registration on the web page for the members club [not required for installation or updates] but basically RJTT v2 installed just perfectly into my FSX installation.

It turns out that Technobrain's RJTT v2 even runs perfectly in P3D v3 and P3D v4. 

For the installation into P3D v4 there is initially a night-time crash but this is caused by just four files which seem to be related to the approach lights (rjtt_sfl_v_22.bgl, rjtt_sfl_v_23.bgl, rjtt_sfl_v34l.bgl and rjtt_sfl_v_34R.bgl). Removing them from the scenery directory makes RJTT v2 perfectly stable in P3D v4. Apparently, nothing significant seems to be missing, see below. Note that although it is not apparent from the night time screen shot, I still have approach lights for the runways.

Below screenshots are from P3D v4 with Technobrain's RJTT v2, Samscene WOW Tokyo (without photo background) and ORBX.

Hi Cesar,

sorry that it took me a few days to get back to you, but here are some more screenshots for you. These are unedited screenshots directly from P3D v4, hope you like them. (I have 3 monitors attached to P3D so it's a very wide screen.)

By the way, I placed another order with Amazon Japan and the box with Technobrains RJBB (Osaka Kansai Int'l) arrived already (after just 3 days in the mail). This is also a beautiful Japan scenery, more on that later, if you want to see some screens. It turns out that Technobrain partnered with Aerosim - this seems to be effectively an upgraded and improved version of Aerosim's RJBB.

Really good info in this thread! A question about some of the freeware linked: Are they P3Dv4 compatible?

Thanks all!

Hi all,

just to keep the thread going, here some more screenshots (and I'll just keep my P3D v4 widescreen format) from Technobrain's Osaka-Kansai Int'l Airport CD-ROM. Note that there is both, a Technobrain label and an Aerosim label on the CD-ROM box. From the looks and from what I understand from the Japanese manual, I'm pretty sure that TB and AS partnered here and the TB version of RJBB is actually an upgraded - an better looking version of Aerosim's RJBB. I like it, anyway.

Some more updates. I was also able to order - successfully - the Technobrain scenery for Osaka Yao (General Aviation) airport, RJOY on airshop.co.jp. Again, the most difficult part was the user registration, getting the shop system to accept address and my (European) name in the correct Japanes characters. Once that was done, it was a straightforward ordering process. More images on RJOY later on.

Then I found that Technobrains RJTT and RJBB are indeed available as download versions - again, on Amazon.co.jp. Here is the link:

Amazon.co.jp - Technobrain RJTT v2 download

It says it's available to customers located in Japan only - you might want to try using a Japanese postal address in the Amazon shop.

Last but not least, a couple links with Japanese scenery overviews, not from freewarescenery.com but from Japanese locals: 

http://virtualcaptain.web.fc2.com/  Nice one, sorted by prefecture, indicates both freeware and payware.

http://mainlander-flight.blogspot.de/2015/10/JapanFSXSceneries.html   Long list of available sceneries

Some providers for freeware:

I have the same RJTT scenery in P3D v4 and yes really working fine so far but no vehicles around as seen in FSX.

Tried 10% ......none in airport but outer area as Tokyo city. Tried 20% and barely some road traffic in airport. What can be the recommended percentage without affecting sim performance. I have UT Live installed, nothing else.

I have those 4 BGL files in Technobrian RJTT v2 scenery with P3D v4 and didn't experience night or day issues yet flying with PMDG 747. I have the Samscene Tokyo Pro City as well. I don't have ORBX. So, maybe problems from ORBX settings?
