What Program do you use ?

Every designer uses another tool, but the most used programs are Airport, FSSC, GroundMaker and Architect. All these programs offer the same basic functions.So if you already have archtect I would advise you to read the help files (I assume they are there, I never used it myself). It should tell you how to setup your scener center coordinates.

On the freeware scale, I use EOD for object design.The layout is done either with airport or with FSSC.Both programs have their advantages. FSSC e.g. uses an OpenGL engine to display textured polygons while the newest airport build has a FSUIPC interface for exact object placement co-working with the FS.Both programs use API type objects.RegardsTorsten

I don't use any scenery design program! I still haven't found one that really suits my needs...At the moment, I'm using Photoshop, gmax, notepad, and BGLC. I'm using scanned diagrams in Photoshop to pinpoint lat/lon where I want to place scenery, and then write macros in BGLC and make 3D objects in gmax. Works quite well...Cheers, Christian
