• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

This is a ALPHA VERSION

This tool creates photoscenery BGLs from Imagery, which has been downloaded with Ortho4XP for P3D.
The tool creates the blend- and watermask, based on shapefiles and resamples.
Furthermore, it is able to create 5 seasons (winter, hardwinter (snow), spring, summer and fall) and can change/enhance the colors of the Ortho4XP imagery.
To avoid loading problems when creating huge areas, this tool merges around 50-100 single images into one bgl.

Illustrated manual and sample run

Important:
You need a working ArcGIS Desktop installation!
For personal use ESRI charges 100 $/year:
ArcGIS Desktop already comes with Python2.7 and the ArcPy interface.

Changelog:
2020-05-15 Fixed a problem when running PSCreator from a different partition and Removed unnecessary files
2020-05-21 Fixed an error that incorrectly creates the resample.inf when using seasons and Path error of ImageMagick fixed
2020-06-08 Better Error handling and reading of the paths improved
