    RIP Joe Watson

    I worked with Joe on the Florida Landclass scenery project. He was quite a character and truly dedicated to the flight sim community. I had the good fortune to meet him in person after we completed the project. Very sorry to hear the news of his passing. Condolences to his family.

    New FSX scenery design tool using Google Earth

    But of course Scott. Get them to shp files and that would do it. Sounds like that would involve just adding an option to produce shp files only. Good idea. I think Luis is adding a shape file import capability to the new Sbuilder.

    New FSX scenery design tool using Google Earth

    I probably didn't express that properly. I should have said that if one has FSX and the FSX SDK that comes with it, then would it be possible to use the tool for FS9 work? I don't have a copy of FSX yet but is the structure of the data so fundamentally different that the tool could not work...

    New FSX scenery design tool using Google Earth

    Would it be difficult to adapt the tool to FS9 or is it only feasible using the FSX SDK?

    New FSX scenery design tool using Google Earth

    I think that is a very interesting idea. One could have a Google Map index where you could see the coverage for various geographic areas. It would take a lot of coordination but could be quite interesting. I hope people go to your Wiki and join in the discussion.

    New FSX scenery design tool using Google Earth

    Nice work in enhancing the default scenery as shown in the screenshots Mathew. I am very interested in your development of this tool. We, The Freeflow Team, used GE extensively in the development of our latest release, the Bahamas, coming out in the next week or so. Not having time or talent...

    Scenery design tool

    I agree Arno. Those are the three tools we use on the Freeflow team. We have only put our toes in the water of FSX but it does appear that we can migrate our sceneries.

    New FSX scenery design tool using Google Earth

    As Scott mentioned earlier in this thread we have been involved in using GE to create scenery in FS9 and were beginning to talk of the need for a tool just as yours is. Thanks for working on this. Most of our work continues in FS9 for the time being. Great job. This will be extremely useful.

    Wind Turbine animation question

    Did you guys get the wind generators working? Are they available anywhere? Sure would love to add one to our scenery. Bob http://www.fs-freeflow.com/ admin

    Wind Turbine animation question

    I sure am glad you smart people are working on this. When it comes to Gmax and animations I am dumber than a bag full of hammers. I have an island that is just itching for some wind generators to power their houses. I knew I could not do it from scratch and after reading your posts I am glad...

    Making an island

    I am sure that others more knowledgeable on the topic can supply a better answer. I just completed a project exactly like that. I first had to create land where there was no land. I got Scott Gridley to help me out there using Slartibartfast and my gray scale image showing water vs. land. He...

    Image specs?

    Ok, I emailed you the misbehaving texture last night. Thanks again for taking the time to look at it. While sleeping last night it came to me that perhaps I need to upgrade the the latest dlls from Martin's website? I was pretty sure I had done that but will do so again just to be sure...

    Image specs?

    Thanks very much Art. I appreciate your taking a look at the texture file. I will email it to you. Bob

    Image specs?

    Hi, I am just experimenting with your autogen editor. It looks very nice and could be very useful in my scenery project. I do understand that it is in development and how much work it takes to create a tool like this. I have a question regarding a custom texture I created which I was going...

    Objects from Coordinate List

    Wonderful. Thank you for considering this idea. I can use my GPS software to generate lists of waypoints with coordinate pairs. The output can be comma delimited which of course can then be imported into a spreadsheet for further modification. It could be a very handy feature. I appreciate...
