    FSXA Adding runway lights to a custom runway

    Thanks Gary, thats very useful information. I've not noticed a drop-off in fps with the SCASM runway, but the airport is pretty bare at the moment, so I may see something later. Thanks also for the information about the taxi and runway lights, for the taxi lights I will have to make my own...

    FSXA Google maps photoscenery - is it legal?

    Curses! Thanks for the swift reply. Am I to assume that the above is true of all online maps; Yahoo, Bing and the like? Is there a free way round this problem, or is it simply a case of purchasing the images if you want to redistribute them?

    FSXA Google maps photoscenery - is it legal?

    I am currently in the process of creating some freeware scenery for FSX, as part of this scenery, I have included some photoscenery made using google maps.

    FSXA Adding runway lights to a custom runway

    Ok, with a little playing around I've managed to partialy solve the problem. I've created an invisible SCASM runway using Airport 2.10 to add lights to the custom runway. However, I would still be very interested to know which effect (if any) is used for the blue taxiway lights as I indend to...

    FSXA Adding runway lights to a custom runway

    Hi there. With much help from the FSDeveloper community, I have managed to create a custom runway for FSX. It looks great, but at night it is not lit up. My question is, is there a simple way to create runway centerline, edge and taxiway lights? Could it be done in Gmax by duplicating objects...

    FSXA Custom Ground Polys for FSX

    Dick, thank you for that. Let me just confirm that I need to have the FS9 gmax gamepack installed? Is that the only thing I need from the FS9 SDK? Sorry for what I suspect is a foolish question, but its always good to be sure from the outset! Thanks again for all your help!

    FSXA Custom Ground Polys for FSX

    Thanks for your reply Scott. Is it correct that you can download the gamepack? If so, perhaps somebody could point me in the right direction. I had thought that it was only avaliable on the FS2002 pro CD. Thanks again.

    Hi all. I would like to create a custom textured ground poly for FSX. Basically, the airport I'm working on has it's name emblazoned on the grass and I want to create a ground poly to represent this in FSX. I have read Bill Womack's very well written tutorial on creating runways in GMAX, but...

    SBuilder Green Triangles

    Hi there. I'm trying to create some photoscenery using SBuilder, but when I compile the bgl and view the scenery in the sim, all I get are these green triangles floating in the sky above where the scenery should be (see attached screenshot). Does anybody have any idea what I am doing wrong?

    Hi there. I am currently making photoscenery for LEJR in Spain using SBuilder. However, when I compile the scenery and start FS2004, the sim loads to 55%, then encounters an error and has to close. All the scenery consists of is the map from which I have selected the photo scenery cells. What...

    Custom Apron Markings & Textures

    Wonderful, thank you very much Luis. And may I also take this opportunity to thank you for SBuilder, its a truly brilliant tool. One further question, I believe I read somewhere that you can't place textured polygons on top of photoscenery because they are further down the scenery hierarchy. Is...
