    Default Screenshots for Scenery I am creating for FSX and P3D

    I have started designing my own scenery for FSX and P3D at the same time as updating airports in Australia to a 2018 version.
    A big learning curve as I had no idea how to create new scenery until I started looking at it on the weekend. So instead of starting at a large airport such as Sydney Kingsford International I will start with a much smaller airport.

    Below is a test shot of Lord Howe Island after adding photo-real landscape and water.....work very much in progress.

    The size of the BGL file for Lord Howe Island is 105MB.

    Default Lord Howe Island

    Overnight I started adding trees and houses to the island. That was a huge learning curve working out how to add the autogen.

    Hi!

    Looking like a fine endeavour, mostly with autogen available with the photoreal concept. Keep us updated as that will more than interest the community

    Thanks for that........ I intend to post pictures here often with each of the airports I add starting first off in Australia and then other countries.
    I think this project takes a lot of time at the start researching exactly how to do this scenery but hopefully after finishing Lord Howe Island I can get airports out a lot quicker.

    If anyone has a wish list for Australian airports they would like me to look at please feel free to make a suggestion here.

    Default Lord Howe Island

    I have covered Lord Howe Island with trees based on Google satellite imagery. The next step is to add the buildings to the island.

    Default Lord Howe Island

    By default Lord Howe Island in FSX only has General Aviation Traffic going to the airport....however in real life there are many aircraft that land at the airport such as the Qantas Dash 8s.

    This morning I added a 7 day schedule for the Dash 8s using the actual flights that arrived or left the airport in the last week.

    Ran a test of the new AI but they did not appear at the airport so need to find out what happened.

    I did create the following screenshot while watching a General Aviation aircraft head towards Lord Howe Island on its flight from Port Macquarie. This tested how real the island looked from a distance.

    Default Australian Ship Traffic

    I will soon start replacing the ship traffic around Australia........ when flying along the coast there should be more ships anchored off the coast of ports like Sydney as well as travelling up and down the coast.

    As you can see in the picture below there are 4 ships off the coast of Sydney at the moment so I would like to see at least 2 or 3 at least showing in FSX.

    The trick is not to reduce the performance of the flight sim when adding the ship traffic.
