  1. I am pleased to announce that CDB Scenery Design and Maps2XPlane have joined to develop together another island scenery for X-Plane: The largest island of the United States Virgin Island in the Caribbean Sea: Saint Croix.
     

    Look forward to a highly-detailed rendition of the international Henry E. Rohlsen Airport (TISX) and a custom photo-terrain-mesh covering the entire island, featuring custom overlays (such as vegetation, country-typical buildings, as well as a road-network and sea-routes with dynamic traffic). The scenery will be complemented with renditions of Christiansted and Frederiksted, with selected landmarks, and of course the Christiansted Seaplane Base.

  2. Ich freue mich mitteilen zu können, dass CDB Scenery Design und Maps2XPlane sich zusammengetan haben, um gemeinsam eine weitere Insel für X-Plane umzusetzen: Die größte Insel der Amerikanischen Jungferninseln in der Karibik: Saint Croix.

     

    Freut euch auf eine detailreiche Darstellung des internationalen Henry E. Rohlsen Airport (TISX) und ein individuelles Foto-Terrain-Mesh, das die gesamte Insel mit individuellen Overlays (Vegetation, landestypische Gebäude sowie Strassennetzwerk und Seewege mit dynamischem Verkehr) abdeckt. Ergänzt wird die Szenerie durch die Städte Christiansted und Frederiksted, mit ausgewählten Sehenswürdigkeiten und selbstverständlich der Christiansted Seaplane Base.

    thanks for detailed response! [...] about the statics, does this scenery have its own statics and I should disable the XP statics?

    You're welcome! And yes, you can disable static aircrafts, if you don't need them. Different than for #Seychelles4XPlane, this time no custom static aircrafts – but maybe with an update in the course of the "Tahiti & Windward islands" development. We'll see...

    I just bought and downloaded the new Society Islands addons so will use this thread to ask questions that may arise.

    Thanks for your purchase. Of course, we are happy to be at your disposal if you have any questions!

    1) First one: I already have ortho and airport scenery for the society islands and beyond, so am wanting to know exactly which grids the maps2xplane addons covers so I can delete my other scenery. Is it these below and nothing else or are there others? Also does this addon cover these grids fully? Thanks!

    The scenery package "Society Islands XP - Bora Bora & Leeward Islands" covers the six tiles you've listed entirely. Mind, the scenery package does not only come with five airports and six helipads, but also a custom terrain mesh and custom overlays (vegetation, buildings, road-networks and sea-routes with dynamic traffic). Therewith, no need to install any additional scenery! If you already have installed additional scenery, you don't need to modify your existing scenery. Just ensure, that the three sub-packages "Society Islands XP - Leeward - Airports", "Society Islands XP - Leeward - Overlays" and "Society Islands XP - Leeward - Terrain" are placed in your "Custom Scenery" folder, and that they are listed on top of your scenery_packs.ini (in aforementioned order and above all other scenery you've installed for the region).

    2) i keep seeing these planes parked in a lot of the lots. is this intended? seems kinda out of place

    Vor 1 Stunde, dresoccer4 sagte:

    3) this may have something to do with question two. every time I load up NTTB all of the spaces are taken except F. and when i tried to load up parking spot G2 it had me crashed into a jet

    Just checked all of the Ramp Starts: They are configured with the correct (intended) type and airline. But if I recall correctly, XP will load alternative static aircrafts if it cannot find a suitable one for the configured type and airline. I'm not sure whether there is any way we can influence that and the amount of static aircrafts spawning. You can disable "static aircrafts" in your XP settings when you're unhappy with what XP is doing here. I will, however, try to find out more about this (background: I am focused on the development of the landscape, Albert on that of the airports - he can certainly say more about this specific XP behavior and what we control and what not).

    can I will be testing map2xplane. I was waiting for a long time. If now it is payware I can pay to test it.

     

    Thanks for your request! Maps2XPlane is the brand for our Custom Sceneries for X-Plane. Some are freeware, others are payware. May I interpret your request in such a way that you are interested in working in our QA team? If that's the case, I'll be happy to get in touch with you via PM.

  11. Just in case, someone missed the lastest article about the airports included in the "Bora Bora & Leeward Islands" package of #SocietyIslands4XPlaneLook forward to Bora Bora Airport (NTTB), Raiatea Airport (NTTR), Huahine – Fare Airport (NTTH) and Maupiti Airport (NTTP), and in addition the airfield on Tupai (NTTU). Here are a few selected snapshots from two of the listed locations:

  13. Ich freue mich anzukündigen, dass Albert und ich uns erneut zusammengetan haben, um ein weiteres Szenerie-Paket für X-Plane zu entwicklen:

     

    SocietyIslands4XPlane. In einem ersten Schritt konzentrieren wir uns auf Bora Bora & all die anderen Inseln unter dem Winde: Raiatea & Tahaa, Huahine, Maupiti und Tupai – um nur die größten zu nennen. Wie bei allen unseren Kreationen üblich, könnt ihr euch auf ein individuelles Terrain-Mesh kombiniert mit individuellen Overlays, mehreren Flughäfen und ein paar Helipads freuen – alles gebündelt in einem Paket.

    In diesem Thread werde ich euch über den Fortschritt auf dem Laufenden halten. Weitere Informationen findet ihr im Entwickler-Blog. Erste Artikel sind bereits verfügbar, weitere folgen in Kürze. Ihr könnt uns auch auf Facebook folgen, um keine Neuigkeiten zu verpassen.

  14. I am pleased to announce that Albert and I teamed-up again to create another scenery package for X-Plane:

     

    SocietyIslands4XPlane. In a first step we focus on Bora Bora & all the other Leeward Islands: Raiatea & Tahaa, Huahine, Maupiti and Tupai – to name just the major ones. As usual for our creations, you can look forward to a custom terrain mesh combined with custom overlays, a couple of airports and a bunch of helipads – everything bundled in a single package.

    In this thread I will keep you informed about the progress. Further information can be found in the developer blog. First articles are already available, further will follow shortly. You can also follow us on Facebook so you don't miss any news.

    But, I don't know where to put the "screens" folder

    I also don't know where to put the DS_Store, coverage.png, and Maps2xPlane.png files.

     

    You can ignore these three files: DS_Store is macOS specific and has no meaning in conjunction with the XP scenery package. Coverage is a map showing the coverage of the data and the last mentioned PNG is my logo. You can also ignore the screens folder. It only contains some example images.

     

    You just need, as described in the README.txt, to copy and paste all the folders under "Resources/map data/water" and all the files under "Resources/bitmaps/Earth Orbit Textures" in the corresponding folders in your X-Plane 11 installation directory. Merge existing folders and overwrite existing files. Caution: Backup any original folders and files before you overwrite them!

     

    In any case, please mind that the Antarctica4XPlane_Maps_v2 package contains only map data and so called earth orbit textures to replace XP defaults. To use #Antarctica4XPlane, you'll need the terrain meshes and overlay sceneries: All available scenery packages are listed on my website.

     

    Happy landings!

    I tried to fly a route between FSSB and FSSD via the garmin 430 [...] however it does not have those airports

     

    Finally, with XP 11.51r1 and the latest Scenery Gateway update, the missing airports are now available in the GPS 🙂

    So it looks like the smaller fields still aren't able to load in the G1000. Maybe because it's using an old airac cycle?

     

    Ben Supnik writes in the latest posting in the development blog: "[...] We are still fixing bugs in the Gateway airports export; it’s not ready for beta 2, but it should be in the next beta after this one [...].

     

    So there is still hope. If the airports do not appear in the GPS after the airports are updated from the scenery gateway, I will ask LR whether what Jennifer said (see quote earlier in this thread) is still valid.

    but when attempting to fly from FSPP to FSSF it crashed xplane

     

    Is that crash reproducible, if yes, how?
