    Just up for air having completed Eire and Northern Ireland with auto gen buildings, trees and water. Satellite images courtesy of Bing and scenery made with FSET. Aircraft repaint courtesy of Jaydor.

    Having just arrived back from a very water logged Florida may I enquire what software you used to generate the corrected coastline and remove, in my opinion, the rubbish fake waves around the coast.

    Have you water masked all inland lakes and rivers?

    Hi Tony and welcome back.

    I use Irfan View for editing the images. I have added water to some of the larger lakes but not all at the moment. I will look at the others some other time.

    Cheers Mike.

    Hi Mike,
    I have been working with Charles Dodson on the top  third of the Island of Ireland encompassing Northern Ireland and that portion of the Republic that the third covers.

    We have  fully masked as far as possible all rivers and lakes. The source photo data has been edited to remove almost all wind farms so they can be replaced by 3D models. I think having a wind turbine image plus a shadow plus a model with its own shadow spoils the illusion.

    I have also custom made Donegal Airports main buildings as a trial run in P3Dv4 with ADE 1.7

    Still some work to do before we have a finished scenery, mainly a new coastline and exclusion of the old one. I am not a fan of the default wave action!

    Regards,

    Tony

    That sounds great Tony. After downloading with FSET I watermask by hand using the Italian guys method with the orange/red colour which has the advantage of hiding any default cartoon scenery in the sea. Cheers Mike.
