Airport names on runways

Recommended Posts

Very important of course in N America, (also Radio frequencies)I have always used FSSC for this, it has the ability to place bitmap on the ground and either make it visible in FS or not. It works very well with a DXT1 bitmap. FSSC is not the easiest of programs to get an accurate postion unless you are prepared to get out a pencil and paper and carefully plot the position, and a bit of trial and error for the heading.I have tried other programs but none seem to be able to place a bitmap over a runway...Anyone?Geoff

And it is also possible with GMax for example, if you tweak the output a little bit to get problem ground polygons. But if you are not familiar with GMax, it is probably not easier to use than FSSC :).

Thanks guys - I will give Sbuilder a try...I tried very early on with Gmax - I recall it kinda worked but there's a problem with ground scenery shadows? (I like my scenery to have shadows)Geoff

Hi Geoff,That is where the tweaking I mentioned comes in :). When using the Fs2002 gamepack you can tweak the generated source files so that they behave like real ground polygons and display the shadow correctly again.
