Manawatu – seasonal colours

So another day and little more work done on my X-Plane Ortho set for New Zealand. I’ve done the area around Palmerston North, it’s looking like this right now:

Palmerston North Airport

So yellow! Is that Kansas?

Unfortunately, this has left me with the most severe colour changes between this region and the surrounds. At very high altitude it will look like this: Manawatu.PNG

I had considered recolouring the files, but that’s not really realistic. Alternatively, I could source other ortho photos taken at different times of year.

As I said in my previous post, I have endeavoured to remove any razor sharp edges from the photos’ seams to blend them together a little better. So at the very least, you could tell yourself there’s a draught in the Manawatu, or they grow different crops maybe.

Here’s Ohakea Air Force Base, featuring the Global Scenery I submitted to the gateway recently:
