It's been a long time, i've been working hard on converting the Linz topo50 vegetation for use in X-plane, for the entire country (NZ).
my 9900k has been working overtime in QGIS. additionally, I am also converting the latest NZ building outlines for the entire country, with separation of commercial, retail, industrial, and residential areas giving a nice distinctive look to the buildings in those areas.
Once i'm done I'm also going to combine this data with osm data to ensure that all the other scenery can be enjoyed. Of course, these will be in 3 separate scenery packs... nztopo_vegetation, nz_building_outlines, and the osm data to provide the powerlines, roads, extra trees in areas missing from the topo data, and much more.
I've been an X-Plane fan for a while now as in my opinion, it's a far superior engine and sim than Prepar3D, thus my reasoning to make scenery for it, which has been a huge learning curve, especially with the way the scenery utilizes data from the OSM format.
The data is is what I used for my Prepar3d scenery which was incomplete at the time, a couple years back but now it's basically complete with a bit left to finish this year as far as LINZ report. I may do a convertion of the latest data for Prepar3d as all I'll need to do is run it through scenproc but my focus is to get it done for X-Plane.
The scenery is designed around Lyndimans ortho. Some initial screenshots at the link below. There is also an Auckland scenery NZMB that includes the Auckland City and surrounding area so I won't be reinventing the wheel, simply adding to the scenery folder brings Auckland alive so much more.
Comments welcome, just putting this out there.
