Working with my spare time in photoshop I’ve not really had time to do any flying in X-Plane recently. So, I opened up FSEconomy and took a job taking some passengers from Nelson to Westport.
It didn’t take long to see my first issue! Some un-edited imagery has snuck in at the last minute. This is a good example of what the ortho would look like untouched! I think it’s easily fixed.
It’s pretty awesome seeing the landscape accurately reflected, I get a real sense of the vast areas that are uninhabited, but without the dull repetition of a desert. It seems like this ortho is going to be great for VFR flyers. That’s primarily why I made it, as I hop all over the country taking jobs on FSEconomy. Aside from just seeing the accurately reflected valleys and rivers, I also noticed forestry works, with huge patterned clearings, something that is missing with auto-gen scenery.
So still lots to do! As before, if you’ve downloaded and appreciate the work, feel free to donate to help resource the effort!
Edit: Fixed the textures shown above! Will link to a patch file shortly:
