i have to admit,............... ive been very lazy there. I havnt done any more on NZTG for a very long time.
Ive been busy with, and been sidetracked by other scenery projects.
It was only intended as a freeware alternative to Robin's lovely RealNZ Tauranga anyway, for those that didnt have the RealNZ payware.
Most people seem to have the RealNZ one, so ive been a bit lazy about doing anything with it, as i said earlier.
If enough people say they still want it, i'll get back onto it after the other projects i have in the que ahead of it.

To be honest, i have no idea how it will fit into OrbX.
I dont have OrbX NZNI, and only build my scenery to fit VLC, which i do have.
Im sure others here have tried it in OrbX,................ perhaps you could ask on the forums if anyone has tried it.

Yep, can confirm all good. Very slight difference in alignment or width of the runway maybe, but otherwise peachy. Definitely a keeper, thanks!

Here is ORBX 'out of the box'...









..and here is Lawrie's... much better. Definitely a keeper.
You can see where the texture of the ORBX runway shows, but I'm just saying its sand at the edge of the runway left over from construction! smile.gif

Labasa will be a little while, theres a few other projects in the que ahead of it.
Nausori, however, is about 85% complete.

Hi Laurie,
You may remember I sent you photos of NZPI. It is my home field for real flying. I have a problem which you may be able to help me with. I cannot get the AI aircraft to take off from R25. I have tried with FTX and VLC scenery. I loaded your BGL into aircraft design editor and it shows a few problems but not sure if they are the reason. Ai aircraft a behaving normally at other fields. I am using FTX AI traffic which is free and very good.
Best regards
Dave J
