Not a huge amount of work for this update.
Gisborne has been updated to 2017 imagery which fixes a lot of discolouration. I’ve also added a mask to the harbour, around the outer side at least. I can’t get too far from the shore, or the imagery runs out and goes black.
Other changes that I’ve finalised are the Auckland Intl area and added in some iron sand around Manukau Heads as this is on the approach path. I then added in a new suburb to Botany South.
Lake Rotorua has been fixed also, and Lake Rotoiti will get a clean up too. I’ll try to clean up the colour errors in this area as I don’t have good source imagery.
Here some more nastiness I’ll look to fix:
I also did a quick flight from Paraparaumu to Turangi. I’m a big fan of limiting the visibility to something quite realistic, even with a bunch of Ortho available. Hiding most of it actually makes the stuff you do see quite interesting.
One of the things I noticed was that even when it’s a merky day, the dithered masks and shadows really pop out a lot more now. Nice!
