scenProc

Recommended Posts

Hi

I try and use photo scenery quite a bit around airports using FSearthtiles and I also have the old photoscenery installed for England and wales (shame there was never one released or Scotland). I have had the autogen files from a site called Shep's trees ( unfortunately the site vanished) installed for many years but the coverage is not so dense as I think most contributors used the annotator to place trees which takes an epic amount of time. However I am really starting to dislike the lack of autogen when using photo scenery. I saw something about creating autogen from Open street maps however in the fs developer guides it says its FSX only so I left it at that. But just this week my interested piqued again and I was looking to see if the FSX AGN can be converted to FS9 however when I looked at the scenProc documentation I see fs9 is supported! It's taken a coupel fo evenings reading the documentation but it seems I have figured it out I mamaged to make some autogen for houses but right now I am processing the houses and trees for a county in the UK, if it works I will share. Does anyone else use this and if so are there any tips or any super configurations someone wants to share? It seems we can do quite a lot for now I will stick to houses and trees but then I will see if I can get more advanced.

After a few evenings of trial and error I manged to get this up and working for FS9 pretty well. I would recommend this tool very highly if you are using photo scenery. I have managed to get trees,buildings and even night lights. So far I have completed the whole of Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire in the UK. I think in a few weeks I will have most of England and wales covered. If I do manage that I will share the files. 

The results are highly dependant on the open street map coverage, tree coverage seems ok but buildings for some towns and cities are not so abundant in the UK.
