FSX Autogen with selfmade Buildings

#1
Hello dear Friends!
I am currently working on marrakech X. The airport is done so far and now i want to make the whole city. I already have about 10 different civil buildings for a selfmade autogen and now the question is, is there a program which could place this buildings for me? Currently im adding every single house with Modelconverter but thats very hard work for a big city like marrakch.:scratchch

Thank you very much for help!

Hi,

Do you have any geo data about the buildings? Then you could use scenProc to create autogen from it. Else it would be the Annotator tool to do it manually for your photo scenery.

Thanks Arno for this ideas.
But:
1. what is Geo Data.
2. Where can i get it?
3. And is there a tutorial for one of the both tools?

Hi,

The SDK has documentation on how to use the Annotator tool to create autogen.

For scenProc (which is a tool I made), there is a manual and a couple of video tutorials as well. Have a look here:

But you'll need some geographical data. Maybe you can find it on OpenStreetMap, but I'm not sure how good the coverage is for your area.

I would definitely place the default autogen. The buildings can be placed the right size easily using the annotator and you don't have to amend any customer's autogen files, which is a right pita. The files will be saved in the respective texture folder and would only require theactivation of the scenery.

You can change the texture sheet that is used by the houses quite easily. That doesn't require changes to configuration files.

And I'm working on a tool to make changing those default configuration files much less a PITA.

Any estimates on when a Beta or development release might be available to test ? :scratchch
I hope to have a beta version ready in less than a week, I almost have it working. But that will be a version for developers to try, it won't be ready to be released with addons yet.
