• 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.

I am currently working on a ZSHC scenery for MSFS. It is my first scenery project. I am still finalizing the model of the terminals. The project is going fairly slow since I am the only one doing it. Here are some screenshots in wireframe view.

Some more previews. The terminal model hasn't be updated since latest previews, so here are screenshots showing the general feel of the airport and it's surroundings.

Spent lot of time lately shaping this area between the two runways. Only default assets here.

Those A320s are NOT static models but custom AI traffic in test. The updated terminal model will have custom jetway links unlike previewed here:

Some more pictures, still WIP.
Been also installing a lot of custom offline AI traffic lately, here are the remote aprons at dawn when the first flights of the day are leaving:

Yep, ZSHC is a busy airport with lots of aircrafts nightstopping here.

Mottoth, I think you confused terminal 2 with terminal 1;). Here's a reference I use.
BTW, I was thinking if we can have a aerial imagery with bigger coverage. Like at least cover the center part of the airport. (Something like this?) The default imagery is very outdated, especially the parking lot area.

Current aerial imagery has this coverage (google imagery from january 2019):

Here's a draft of final version, removing all stuff covered by aprons to make it lighter:

Basically I followed airport boundaries. Enlarging the selection would make blending with MSFS terrain more difficult, it was already very difficult to color-match the imagery due to different sources and methods displayed by the sim at ZSHC location:

From another angle:

I'm afraid I can't do better.

This coverage is good. Though if you are using imagery from Google, would it cause us copyright issues when distributing the scenery?

The huge area west of the terminals between the runways is now done, only default assets and "aprons"/polys/painted lines mixed with aerial imagery here but damn it took time to complete that work:

All gates except the tip of T1 (not shown today) have now custom jetway links.

Really wonderful interiors.
Question : Better than create interior, why don't you use Parallax 3D Interiors ? I don't know how to use them. There is probably some tuto.

Firstly, terminal 2 and 3 are almost fully surrounded by glass, so I don't know parallax window mapping will be a good idea with such big areas of glass.
Secondly, we've tested the performance with the current model, and the performance is quite good. So we decided to stick with modelled interior.

I honnestly prefer 3D interiors too, they are more immersives, especially for people (like me) who enjoy using the Drone Camera and wander like passenger.

BTW, are you using Blender?
