The whole of the North Island is in X-Plane for testing

I’ve now loaded the Ortho for the whole of the North Island into X-Plane. Most of the ortho is done but some areas need tweaks. Other areas, I’ll leave as is because I don’t want perfect to be the enemy of good.

There will always be some seams running along very large areas, but hopefully it will be an immersive set. It looks worst from space where you can see massive amount of land mass at once. But that doesn’t really bother me.


Tauranga from space – this tile needs brightness adjustment to fit with the rest. It also has patches of light greeeny blue that could be photo shopped. 

Gisborne looks really good with the default gateway airport scenery. I like how the railway has a level crossing with the runway. Now with the new release candidate patch I’ve enabled scenery shadows too.


Note the scenery shadows on the buildings bottom left and the trees bottom right.

Now begins the process of checking the tiles and reprocessing what ever is bad enough to warrant it.Capture7.PNG
