  1. Currently hosting it on Flightsim.to, free to download: Mid-Michigan Pack Download Being a local of the Mid-Michigan area I decided to begin enhancing the local smaller fields, making GA flying to these fields more authentic and enjoyable. This so far is just something I’ve decided to do for myself but I decided It would be a waste to be the only one to benefit in these areas. Fun video of fields: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZhQG60Q-tk&feature=youtu.be It’s fairly time-consuming building these so I can’t say when future ones will be added, but I do plan to continue this and expand upon my initial pack. So far the list is KLAN - Lansing KFPK - CharlotteKRMY - MarshallKTEW - Mason 4D0 - Grand Ledge 9D9 - Hastings 24C - Lowell Y70 - Ionia 6D6 - Greenville KOEB - Coldwater With planned areas being 35D - Allegan KJYM - Hillsdale KOZW - Howell And fields I wish to do but are not expected in near patches are: KBTL KAZO To install simply place the files in the community folder into your community folder. I’d also be open to requests within the region or feedback, I’m trying to avoid large fields for now but maybe in the future. And if you like my work I would greatly appreciate any donations towards the project, but it’s by no means necessary. PayPal Donations Have fun! -Rock
  2. How does FS 2020 sort out preference when there are scenery conflicts (i.e. when I have two separate files in my Community folder with the same landmark)? In X-Plane 11 you have the scenery_packs.ini file where you can order things to ensure one scenery takes preference over another? How do you do that in FS 2020?
  3. I just finished the final version (for now at least) of my GTA Enhancement Pack. Now the whole area should feel much more realistic. I have imported, edited and color corrected photogrammetry and added many 3D objects for many key areas that are prominent in VFR flying and IFT approaches to Pearson CYYZ and CYTZ. Now the city looks much more convincing. I even went totally bonkers when doing Wilson station right next to Downsview airport, and custom modeled/painted TTC buses and Coach Canada ones too. Then I seeded a few of those throughout the city as well. You can download it free at https://flightsim.to/file/538/greater-toronto-area-enhancement-pack if yuu like. Just wanted to share it. You can see some juicy photos in the spoiler below: Screenshots with some photogrammetry goodness: Here's the full info:
  4. Default Niagara Falls have photogrammetry but the actual falls are totally broken. They are beyond ugly, they are simply unbearable. So I have decided to try and fix that. This pack features enhanced scenery for Niagara Falls area (Canada/USA) with animated color-changing night illumination of the falls, to compliment default photogrammetry and autogen areas and default terrain fixes for maximum VFR flight enjoyment. Unfortunately the terrain editor is very buggy, so it's not possible to completely fix them. However using a combination of terrain terraforming polygons and imported photogrammetry I made them as good as I can, considering the broken state of the SDK. Please note: don't expect a perfect result, because it's not. But I think this pack looks much better than default, and cyclic random color illumination of the falls at night looks really nice. The power generation dams are out of default photogrammetry area and were completely flat. I added them, and also replaced several fugly opaque bridges with proper transparent models.Download here. Video starting from the night lighting demo, but you can rewind to beginning to see it in early evening and see the casino lighting. More images: Details:
  5. I'm hoping to soon start work on my local airport and eventually my home town in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020. I've been waiting for some decent Howto videos on the topic, and they are slowly starting to appear on YouTube, but I know I'll have questions once I dive in. I've done plenty of scenery and mod work in the past, so I understand the basics, just not the specifics when it comes to MSFS 2020. What specific forum should I use to post these questions?
  6. I had the clever idea of replacing the default textures for trees with colorful ones so I can experience a proper New England autumn, but when I go to open these I get the following error - "Unsupported compression (827611204) in BMP". I've tried opening these files with multiple graphic editors, but no joy. Most of the texture files in fs-base directory open fine, but trees and a few others do not. Does anyone have an idea as to why?
  7. Sometimes i see strange rock formations, sometimes pillar like when at an airport or when flying closer to the ground. Does anyone know what is causing it? Its almost like the scenery did not completely load or something. Thanks
  8. I found the guide to adding enhanced scenery on msfsaddons. I’ve started to follow the process, but noticed that it involves downloading satellite imagery (pretty obviously), from a source such as Google Maps. Does anyone know whether this violates any terms of use or copyright? I wouldn’t want my first venture into the sim world to be at all dodgy...
  9. From what we've seen so far, MSFS looks fantastic almost everywhere in the world. However what most reviewers complain (or even laugh) about are missing landmarks. And I have to admit, Washington without the Capitol, Paris without Notre Dame and so forth looks kind of strange. Not to mention cities that have no handmade landmark at all. Especially in Europe important buildings (like castles, cathedrals, television towers or lighthouses) certainly define the whole landscape around them and are vital orientation points for VFR flying. Not only those in cities, but especially those in the middle of nowhere (Great Wall of China, Machu Picchu, Pont du Gard...) So what do you think we'll see after release: Microsoft/Asobo handing out more landmarks (for free)? Or third party developers jumping in (ORBX already started with London) or will there be a community delivering handmade landmark buildings? I think packs would be cool, like "European Landmarks" or something. There used to be a product called German Landmarks about 15 years ago which was pretty good value for little price.
  10. So I had a play with the latest Bing 3D maps to find specific areas of airports in China that are destinations from my airport I was very disappointed to see Chongqing (Jiangbei) International New layout and new terminal 3 still under construction in the Bing images. under Google maps it is shown fully complete along with the extra two runways. In real life this terminal and runways have been operational since 2017 and I have flown in and out of there at least 3 times.. The point is, the images shown on Bing are at least 7 to 12 years out of date. I am guessing MS2020 will reflect this out of date imaging.. For non US default airports. While I accept that nobody probably cares too much about this.. And eventually some 3rd party may develop a more up to date image.. I would have personally liked more recent mapping.. As this will reflect in buildings and city layout too.. Chongqing and its immediate environs encompass 32 million souls.. I have no proof of course this will be the case as I am not an Alpha nor Beta tester.. Just an observation.. Any feedback welcome Ray
  11. Hi- I cannot enable some of my addon scenery packages in P3D v5. For one, DD's Chicago X. The check box will not check, or if it does check, it then gets unchecked again. Can anybody help with this? Thanks. -Ed
  12. I recently purchased LVFR KEYW airport and I am having flashing textures on the runway (and only the runway). I am thinking that I have a scenery conflict some where but not sure where it is or how to find and address. Any thoughts? Thanks Kevin
  13. Finally, A Little Frankfurt..... A thanks to TheFlightPhotographer for the 4k (Hi-Res) repaint of Lufthansa's new paint-scheme. Thanks for viewing, Darryl
  14. So I have been flying in and out of Japan with a lot of flights, but so far I only own a couple of sceneries that allow me to do so, and those are Narita International Airport and Fukushima Airport by Wing Creation Inc., and Kansai International Airport by Aerosim. But I haven't seen any other scenery for japan, so I was wondering if there is more to be found? And I am not just looking for airports but also mesh and textures for the surounding scenery. I don't mind if it is payware or freeware, all I want is that it can be ported into P3Dv4 and that it is of decent quality
  15. FSDT have a 30% off sale for one week. http://www.fsdreamteam.com/forum/index.php/topic,17555.0.html
  16. John Venema has just announced photoreal scenery coming this year for UK/IRELAND regions.
  17. The long anticipated released of KSLC, by renowned airport designer MisterX6, is now available at the Org store. Salt Lake City International Airport (KSLC) is located about 4 miles west of Downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. It is the fourth-largest hub for Delta Airlines, as well as a hub for Delta Connection carrier SkyWest Airlines. Salt Lake City International Airport offers scheduled flights to the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Europe. KSLC is a detailed creation from ShortFlight Design, aka MisterX on the forum where his freeware scenery are appreciated with thousands of users. Accurate rendition of KSLC Highly accurate scenery for KSLC – Salt Lake City International Airport and parts of Salt Lake City Accurate models for all terminals, hangars, and other buildings Most terminals with 3D interiors High-Resolution Airport Dynamic reflections on buildings (X-Plane 11 only) Baked Ambient Occlusion Custom high resolution ground textures HDR night lighting High resolution photo scenery (15cm/px) Animated and populated Airport Animated airport vehicles (GroundTraffic) Animated jetways and custom Docking Guidance System (DGS) unique to KSLC (using the AutoGate plugin) Randomly placed static aircraft, can be easily toggled off in the X-Plane settings While this is MisterX6's first payware airport, his previous work with near-payware quality freeware is well known in the community, and judging by the screenshots, it appears he has hit this one out of the park! This link will take you to many high-res screenshots to give you a good idea of what to expect: https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipNVidFkZTgLsnyfcfGYYQjDtxWBNyGfCypHV-_b9pVArZEgTia1BVzUcZcfoiqPOA?key=V2k3b1laUlZIbWRfTENyUEx0dDk5cFM5Z2tQaEdR

  19. Sim pilots looking for a spot of fun in the sun have a new destination to head for with the release of FSDG's St Vincent. The latest in the developer's 'Pilots of the Caribbean' series includes complete coverage of St Vincent, LOD13 mesh, SODE jetways and detailed renditions of the island's airstrips.
  20. In the simulator, there is only the now closed SEQU scene, can there be a free default scene for the new SEQM ?
  21. Hi Folks, Just transferred over to P3D V3 from FSX and looking for some good UK scenery and airport files. I have the FSX versions of VFR photographic scenery and UK2000 airports, but not too sure if I can use these directly with P3d v3, and if so with the install pick up I'm using P3D and not FSX. Any help and advice - much appreciated. Rocky 114B
  22. Just announced. I recently bought their v4 KATL from them and was pleased. Anyone taken the plunge yet? If so feedback? Thanks -Braun
  23. I have downloaded some Add on scenery's, but in some of them, this error is going on ( Charles de Gaulle and Brussels Airport). Does anyone know why? Thanks Pedro
  24. As per topic description, having hard time choosing between three different sceneries - LatinVFR, JustSim, Aerosoft/SimWings (which is on sale right now BTW, hence the topic). Went through previous topics, but could not receive a definitive answer, maybe this time around there will be more luck 🙂 And now, the most important thing: EDIT: added poll for convenience.
  25. Hi, I seem to be having trouble getting EZ autogen to work, I know it is an excell file, but I can't afford Microsoft Excell, and am using programs that open such as Libreoffice and Open office, only thing is is getting it to connect to FSX while I am flying over a certain area to edit, and my version is the FSX-SE edition.
