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

World Scenery 1.0.0

From FlightGear wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

World Scenery v1.0.0 released March 4, 2008.

The World Scenery is made for FlightGear 1.0.0, but from a technical point is should also work with the previous v0.9.8 - v0.9.10 versions of FlightGear. It was the current WS at the time of FlightGear 1.9.0 release in December 2008. The scenery is based on the following data sources:

   * landcover/landmass data provided from the FlightGear MapServer, identical with VMap0 data
   * elevation data: SRTM3 version 2, SRTM30/GTOPO30 version 2 (both from ftp://e0srp01u.ecs.nasa.gov/srtm/version2/)
   * airport data: apt.dat as released with the V1.0 base package
   * Most objects and models from the Scenery Objects Database 

The main changes relative to the old world scenery are:

   * points previously classified as "town", but not having much in common with settlements at all, have been removed
   * airport layouts updated
   * objects from the Scenery Objects Database updated 

In addition, the order of taxiways from the airport database is now used as specified in the apt.dat-file - in contrast to being sorted by size as in previous scenery builds. Many taxidraw users have been using the sorting of the taxiways to achieve specific visual effects, which are visible now in the scenery.
