    FSX Black and White Image comes out red after resample

    I have a USGS Digital Ortho-quad (DOQ) that I'd like to use in FSX and ADEX as a background image for template purposes. Thanks to helpful threads on fsDeveloper, I've successfully re-projected the GeoTiff from NAD83 to the proper WGS84 datum. Using a simple .inf sample which Arno posted in...

    Ideas for terrain textures for historic airport?

    I'm attempting to start a project to create a historic, or "retro", version of Chicago's O'Hare International Airport circa 1979-80. While I'm a relative beginner at scenery design, my goal is to produce a relatively high-detailed airport scenery including custom ground polys for all ramps...

    FSXA Minimum size of photoreal image for use in FSX?

    After some fits and starts, and a couple year vaction from attempting FS9 scenery, I'm getting back into a project to create FS scenery. I'm interested in moving up to FSX, to avoid the 4.75 m/pix resolution restraint in the old FS9 resampler.exe program. Before I spend considerable money on...

    FS2004 SDK Photo Terrain Help?

    I'm trying to produce photoreal terrain using USAPhotoMaps and Terraserver imagery. Reading the SDK, I'm unsure as to how to compute the CellXdimensionDeg and CellYdimensionDeg values for the .inf file. The instructions note that this must be the distance between each pixel in degrees...

    Help needed Texturing GMAX buildings

    I'm in the progress of building my first FS2004 scenery project, a late 1970's retro Chicago O'Hare. I've learned a lot of great information from this forum and the various turorials that many of you have been so kind to share. I've run into a texturing problem that I'm hoping someone can help...
