• 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.

P3D v3 work in progress ...KDAY

Its been a couple "o years since I began this project, and now i'm happy to say it wont be long now. few weeks max. I've gone through a serious learning curve in the last little while and its ON! few screenies....

Ground color correction, some more model work and some photoshop time, and its good to go....this is exciting for me as its my first airport scenery. Worth the wait though....cheers!

Nice work!
If the color of the airport area is matched to landclass outside would be much better. It is quite difficult to adjust the color to match the surrounding.
 
thanks JT your opinion counts very much, i just had an epiphany and got the whole thing in one day. you've been a HUGE help, im gonna use your light model, slightly altered, but that's why its there right?
 
Not complaining or rushing you, but it's been a little more that a few weeks. Is KDAY almost ready? Really want to get my hands on it:)
 
Since i figured out what i want to do and how to do it, ive been concentrating on a few other more important projects, but IT WILL be on my upcoming short list of things to finish. hopefully before the end of 2015
 
Just a quick update on KDAY. Thanks to all the wonderful people who have helped sort out all the small things.
Models are in the process of getting textures, lights have been successfully created and are in the process of being placed. seasons and night textures are done.
Theres still a lot more to do but its definitely back on the front burner!

Congrats on nearing the completion. I've flown in and out of there many times, and I think it's time for a scenery there.

It really like how your lights turned out.

Have a good K-DAY, Ha Ha. :rotfl:
 
If you are using images from the USGS database.....you bet it has to be freeware. ;-)

Hope that helps your decision.
 
I just found this thread. Very happy to see someone giving some love to my hometown airport. If you need someone to test it out in P3Dv3.1, let me know. Thanks for your efforts.
 
finally a big step forward on getting the ground poly texture in order. and.... sad to say after 4 years, its probably not "near" completion, but its getting there. at least some high def texture for the gp's

Well this is definitely coming along. I need to stop predicting how long though. to do the quality of work I want to see, is grueling and the most tedious work ive ever done. BUT...it is coming along. Stay tuned, devoting all spare time to it now.
 
i have some videos i took at Dayton airport on my youtube channel as well as some new ones i just took about a week ago flying in and out of there. Are you planning to make it be supported with AES and FS9?
