TerraShape is available now

Recommended Posts

Hi All,The lastest build (final, I hope) of TerraShape is on my hangar site now.TerraShape is a utility for translating Shapefiles into DXF files and vv. This enables easy editing capabilities. TerraShape is designed to work with TerraScene for those of us who live outside the US and only have the DCW data to work with.Anything is possible from adding missing roads etc. to editing coastlines, it depends upon your patience :-)TerraShape will NOT correct the runways-in-the-water or airplane-sinking problems, because thay are not scenery related as such. The coastlibes that you can edit are for visual effect only.For US designers, TerraShape will allow you to import a shapefile along with your USGS data, so that you can see the runways in your scenery.Here's Vero Beach Munihttp://www.avsim.com/hangar/fly/colins2/im.../Vero-Beach.jpgAnd here is Fort Piercehttp://www.avsim.com/hangar/fly/colins2/im...Fort-Pierce.jpgTerraShape is on my hangar siteColin

It's what I call it when the Fly! editor fails to slice a perfectly good TGA properly.It has only happened to me when slicing the tiles in column 000:ZZZ.My local airfield happens to be in 000:172.I have noticed this in several other 000:ZZZ tiles also, as have others.I wrote a fix for it - well half a fix.The ground tiles are correct and you can Fly! the area, but I never did figure how to make the distance textures.(The distance textures created by the editor are also wrong.)After my holiday, starting tomorrow, I will try and get some documentation together, clean up the app a bit and post it on my site.Say around 3 weeks or so.But if you are not creating scenery for this column, you probably don't need it.Colin
