    Gentlemen,

    my current project has now reached the point where I am able to post some shots without flushing too much. So please find attached one of my favorite pictures from the visual approach 08 (which is flewn as well by small aircraft as by jets; B747 are not allowed to land in LOWI).

    I am struggling with some texture issues and a problem with VTP-excludes but I am quite confident to finds solutions. On the right corner at the bottom you can see a part of the rail-track. I am planning to add dynamic trains (like in Leipzig-Halle).

    Great work Gianni!! Are you planning to create also the autogen for the city of INN? Or at least plant some tree near the airport :D
    Btw is a great scenery! Just a question: how did you modeled the elevated road?

    I think the road is just an image ...

    Looks great as always when it's Gianni's work! :cool:
    But I think it will be payware, won't it?

    "Approaching LOWI 2008 wird als Payware" stands on the projects homepage.

    So I am afraid it seems like it will be payware...

    hi awsome project!!!

    may i just ask what quality Sat Nav images are you using e.g. metres per pixel and where did you get them from?

    im looking at Terraserver as they seem the cheapest however im not sure of the quality

    regards

    hi Philip,

    nope - I do not use sat images. I am using areal photos with a resultion of 0,25m/pixel. For Austria they are property of the government and I had to buy them (awful expensive!).

    Looks awesome ... I fully understand, that you release that one as payware, although I'm a little bit sad about it ...

    "Release Candidate" means that the scenery addon for FS9 is ready for release but the installer and the documentation has yet to be finished. But functionally nothing additionally has to be done anymore.

    Thank you Georg.

    The scenery is available at www.aerosoft.de. Now I have to struggle with the FSX-version. It never ends :)
