    Wow

    What will this product cost?
    Or is it freeware?

    Nice scenery by the way ;)

    This will be freeware if its released.....a lot of it uses very expensive data which, as you can imagine, my superiors arent really keen to give away :eek:
    I use FSX as part of my work for 3D Visualisations etc...it gives better results than products costing hundreds of times the price of FSX (i.e. ArcGlobe)

    I will be releasing the Mount Tarawera scenery though- This will include a 5m mesh from Lidar data (5m mesh has been desampled for FSX- the source data is accurate to within centimetres and has a 1m pixel resolution)

    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! What more can I say? I hope your superiors decide to let you use the data, 'cause it makes for a stunning bit of photoscenery. I'd spend a whole lot more time in NZ if it looked like that in FS. :)

    Have you got the little statue (forgot what it's called) on the harbour entrance? I had a flight to White Island from Whakatane last year, in ZK-EJY; it was absolutely fantastic!

    If your bosses don't let you release, it'll be a tragedy of epic proportions (okay, maybe not, but...). Go Bay of Plenty District Council, yay!

    Wairaka? (Lady on the Rock)...no i havent got that....yet. Im in the process of making Whakatane Airport and township and would like to include that :)...so much to do, so little time!

    EJY is the aircraft I train in :) You can get a repaint for the default C172 from www.flightsim.co.nz and search Avsim for my name (Tim Barnes) to download the White Island photoreal scenery :)

    Both are for FSX only.
