Quick update! South Island R3 – out now

A quick update – long overdue.

I’ve released a new update for the South Island. This features a number of minor corrections for the ortho and the mesh.

You can grab the torrent files for the South Island here.

In other goods news, I should soon be able to seed these files with 500 MB/s upload speeds! Wooo…

  1. Downloaded it all and so far it is looking good. Took a couple of days in all to download, but well worth the wait. Thank you for improving what was already a pretty stunning set of orthos (though so far, I can’t see any difference). Now I have to fly all over the South Island in search of something odd – or better. Roll on your 500mb seed!

  2. Gonna help ya out for a few months 😀

  3. Hi. Just wanted to let you know I’ve found a big problem at NZGY Glenorchy.
    I was trying to help someone on the org as he had a step in the airport at NZGY which ran roughly from bottom left to centre right side of the runway. This took a while to diagnose as it wasn’t on my sim but we eventually found out he was using the newer R3 version and I was still using the older R2.
    I have now downloaded a new west coast R3 and indeed this step does exist and makes the runway almost unusable. If you set up a flight on runway 32 and taxi forward you’ll find the step quite easily.
    I put the old R2 version back again and the step goes away and everything looks fine once more so it seems that R3 may have accidentally introduced that issue to NZGY. I have managed to track down the faulty file and it’s –

    West coast,
    EarthNav folder

    Unfortunately that now goes beyond my knowledge of what to do to fix it to make R3 work properly so I just wanted to let you know and fingers crossed you may be able to do something to cure the problem.
    If you need any more info I’m DazaXIII on the org so feel free to message me.

    Thanks for all your great work. .
    Kind Regards, Daz.

  4. Hi. You did say in your last message to me to let you know if I found anything else and I’ve come up with another two unfortunately. I did send a message on the org but I don’t think you’ve read that so I’m guessing that’s not a good way to contact you is it?
    Anyway, first is NZWN Wellington. The 16 end of the runway takes a bit of a nosedive down towards the water and also the smaller east apron slopes down at the south end of it. Tested without your ortho it does seem a lot better so I think it’s that which is causing it.
    The second one is XNZNB Neils Beach where the runway has some large bumps in it and when I tried an “always flatten” in WED that strangely made it even worse. Tested with the default there is a slope but it’s acceptably small so again I think it may be an ortho issue.
    Hopefully there is something you can do with those and I’ll look forward to hearing from you.
    Kind regards
    Darren (DazaXIII at the org)
