  1. Last weekend I tried doing a flight between KMIA (MS default) and SACO in FS9 (default, reworked AFCAD, default terminal buildings added and photoreal ground textures I generated in SBuilder 2). Keeping with Murphy's law, I was getting a CTD just at approach. After checking with AppCrashView, I saw it was a StackHash error, for which the CTD guide did not give me the best hope. I was fearing a reformat... After trying again (I had just saved 30 NM before the airport), I ran Process Monitor along with FS9, until it crashed. After weeding out all the DLL crashes (every single DLL in FS9 reported buffer error), I found the culprit was a missing winter texture (it's winter in Southern Hemisphere). Turns out that I only generated summer and night textures (and autogen), and forgot to generate all other season bitmaps. After generating all season textures, I could land with no issue. Hope this helps when you see this type of CTD.
  2. Hello everyone! I am working on a photo scenery for Africa for 2.5 years now. Sounds megalomaniac? It is. In the meantime, the project is already well progressed, and many people told me to do some advertising for it. First of all the little story behind the project: After I bought the FSL bus, I noticed how bad the performance of the FSL bus was together with ORBX Germany. So I was searching for a solution, and I found it in Photosceneries. Since I didn't want to fly without autogen, I used my experience from my geography studies and programmed Python scripts based on arcpy. These are able to generate high-precision autogen for the sim based on OSM and Corine data sets, as well as water data, elevation data, population data, etc. and with the help of ScenProc. After Germany was finished, I created Belgium. Although the data for these countries was very good, I started writing Python scripts in parallel, which can also create autogen based on Landsat and Sentinel data, in regions where OSM data is hardly available - like Africa. And so, since Africa is a dark spot in the sim, I started to create african countries about 1 year ago. It took again more than 6 months, until my scripts - and the results - were good enough to post the first pictures. And yes, what can I say, the feedback was excellent! And while I'm still improving my scripts piece by piece, I've been releasing a country every now and then since half a year. At the moment approx. 30 % Africas are covered. Here's a small list of the features I've put a lot of effort on: - Good photo scenery with 2 m/px without strong visible color transitions and without many clouds - Accurate Water- (based on OSM) and Blendmasks - Color adjustments so that desert areas are not overexposed - Accurate autogen vegetation (based on vegetation classifications and land cover data), spatial resolution less than 10 m - Accurate autogen buildings (method introduced with Senegal), placement based on OSM and high resolution land cover data - Small file size (I expect to get whole Africa in less than 700 GB) - No performance impacts But I think I've written enough for now, so some pictures: More Information about my project you can find here: Project Africa - FSDeveloper.com and here: Project Africa - FSXforum.de Have a nice wekend everybody and kind regards!

  3. I've searched, and try as I might, I can't find any large-scale photoscenery for Italy. Am I missing something? I found quite a lot about the canned SIRX project (which looked fantastic) and some by Mazzokan but they're mainly FS2004. Are we just going to have to wait until the likes of MSE decide to do Italy? It's a shame that there isn't as at the moment you can go all the way from the end of the Iberian peninsular to Holland and northern Germany over photoscenery but Italy is sadly lacking and I'm sure it would look fantastic.
