Re: AA (Arc Alpin) may be in future on Condor2?

I've just updated the AA scenery, the shadow of the powerline is still visible, maybe it's wise to update this too, To prevent problems later, Condor accepts the version with and without the patch on a server? Hi Jan, No pb for the objects, you can change them or remove them. And for the few ones t...

Re: AA (Arc Alpin) may be in future on Condor2?

I would recommend however turning the shadow off on the powerline towers. The shadows are big triangles and the effect becomes worse when it is later in the day when the sun gets lower. It causes a lot of glitches and looks bad because you would expect a transparent shadow. Thank you Wiek, you're r...

Re: AA (Arc Alpin) may be in future on Condor2?

Great, thanks for this amazing work. Will you expand map? My town and airport is on east border, I can see it but can't reach it. LDVA I'm sorry, but probably not in the east. The scenery is already out-centered, with the reference meridian at 9° east (UTM32), and going further in the east would in...

Re: AA (Arc Alpin) may be in future on Condor2?

Amazing work! I look forward to exploring and finding these new objects :mrgreen: Quick question, for this update once installed on a server do all those wishing to join the server have to have the latest version too? It sounds like there is a little more than just texture files updated. Everybody ...

Re: Experiences with forest maps

For the US you can use the National Land Cover Database, with its 30m resolution, it's a good base, that you can improve with adequate textures selection. I built my West Coast sceneries like that.

Re: Satellite images

That's a good idea.
You can probably do this with a lot of free image processing software that can do batch processing like Irfanview or XnView, or The GIMP. But of course, the best of all is Photoshop!
But if you use these softwares, why don't you directly convert your images to dds?

Re: Satellite images

The problem is in the dds converter. The white spots are located in full dark pixel. Try to convert them with another tool; and use DXT1 if there is no water in the patch.

Re: Condor Updater - socket error # 10060 connection timed out

I'm trying to download AA2 (Arc Alpin 2) through the condor updater as I saw it frequently used on the condor server list on their website, but I keep getting these error messages "images attached", whenever I click ok or dismiss the pop-up error window the download terminates, and I've noticed tha...

Re: FAI VARESE - Error on Task 1

Sorry, Guys! The organizing team has been working very hard to provide you with the more realistic flights we could in these VSGP (besides producing 6 new sceneries, representing thousands of benevolent hours of work). A mismatch between the task setters led to this (small!?) error, that viciously e...
