Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

TerraGear GUI: a first release
After over a year of slow (and most of the time stalled) development, Gijs released a first full-feature version of his [[TerraGear GUI]]. The name explains it all: it is a graphical interface that allows users to generate scenery.
It works comparable comparably to FGRun, as it generates a commandline based on the user's settings and drives one of the TerraGear tools through that. Through a serie series of tabs, the user is guided through the process of creating scenery. Steps include: downloading data, processing elevation data, generating airports, assigning materials and in the end, the actual scenery construction. Making changes in one of those steps will result in different scenery. The GUI allows users to easily finetune their scenery.
There are still lots of bugs to be solved, features to be added and improvements to be made. But, now that there's a useable GUI, more and more people will (be able to) discover the magic world of building scenery. And I'm sure that, if all those people give some feedback in the [http://www.flightgear.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=7485 forum topic], the GUI will improve rapidly!
