    Hi guys,
    I'm working on a little airport in a beautiful italian city: Parma. Here's a simply screenshot of runway. I'm still working on in order to make it more realistic. Any advice?

    thanks!

    Well, I'd ask you for advice: how did you create the texture for these nice stripes?

    With Photoshop: make a rectangle, fill it with a dirty white, add uniform noise, blur it a bit, than add texture (filters > texture > grain, choose vertical). Then select all, choose filters > distortion > ocean ripple and adjust settings for a bit reactangle's edges erasing. Do the same things for alpha channel, but instead fill with white, try with a middle dark grey!

    bye!

    Wow. Looking really nice. Sadly I don't own photoshop, but maybe Corel's Photopaint will also do the job... I hope :rolleyes:

    Hi!
    If you mean the white strips, there's no original texture. Is totaly made by a simply white rectangle. Instead, if you referring to runway, is a simply texture found on google images with some retouch.

    Is this in FSX?

    If so, I am very interested in how you are getting the custom runway texture down.

    I think he means GoogleEarth. I think he took an image from there and modified it for use in the sim.

    The question I have is, was this FS9 or FSX?

    Hello guys,
    sorry for mistake. About Google Images, I'm refering to http://images.google.com not to google maps or earth. And my scenery is for fs9 :)

    This is great! :) I agree with the post above, regarding the runway/grass transition.
