    This looks great - there are still so many US-airports missing. Are you planning on using custom textures for Apron and Runway? For me this is one of the most important aspects.

    Keep up the work and dont forget to update us :D

    regards, chris

    Nicely done! Your custom apron and taxiway textures are looking very good, as are your buildings. Keep us posted and don't give up. I'm about to start my own project and seeing other's work is encouraging. I like that you're doing a regional airport. We really need more of those.

    I am having some trouble figuring out exactly how to do the runway and taxiway custom textures. Ive read everything i could find about it, but just cant seem to figure it out. any help here would be awsome!!!:):):)

    Ive found and have the textures i would like to use but applying them has proved a problem. Im just sortof figuring out how to use GMAX, and i suppose that would be the program to use?

    THANKS

    Looks magnificent! This is really encouraging as well for me; I just got started in using photo real textures and am still learning how. If you don't mind me asking, how did you get yours to be so crisp?

    You need to do ground poly with satellite image. And put it over the layer that you have already made. So it will be less pattern.
    I normally use satellite image and cut just the part that I need to overlay on taxiway, runway and apron. You don't need very high resolution. I turn those image into black and white and make another alpha channel with that picture (ctrl-A and ctrl-C) and put the whole picture to alpha channel. Then I revert it. So the black on photo become more visible than the white one.
    You can try that with your apron first and see how it looks. You will like what you have done.
