I'm Laserman. My callsign is d-laser.
My nick on the forum is pommesschranke.
sometimes you can find me on



Videos(mostly RC Heli, electronics, ...)

stuff that I did, am doing and plan to do


I help others via forum and mumble to get started with FlightGear, Scenery Development, modelling with Blender...

  • project3000: - enhance airports automatically with many shared models. Creates ICAO.jetways.xml files, too.
  • - additional detail for genapts850 and 'buildings.osm'-generator for osm2city
  • and : tools to download airport layouts (ICAO.dat & ICAO.txt) from
  • converter script: converts from gpx files (from JOSM or other sources) into .stg lines
  • reads with WED) and writes .stg line to STDOUT
  • tools for reading & generating apt.dat (from/to ASCII, Postgres, sqlite)
  • tools to convert parking locations and taxisigns from/to apt.dat, groundnet.xml, nnnnnn.stg
  • && Convert groundnets from apt.dat to ICAO.groundnet.xml
  • a little python script that receives properties via USB-serial and forwards to FlightGear via UDP socket
  • the firmware for my Hardware Panel written in C (avr-gcc)

terrain (TerraGear)

Bugfix release for some flooded airports. I did not make them, I just make them available

Updated Layouts (ICAO.btg.gz) for more than 2000 airports:

(based on new airport layouts (12/2015) from

I use NickR's terragear scripts:

AI ground networks and startup locations

ICAO.groundnet.xml files with AI ground networks(900 airports) and parking locations(7900 airports)

The tools I used:

parking and groundnet:

  • (read apt.dat write to sqlite )
  • (read from sqlite and create folders and files in Airports folder)

lists of airports with ground networks

animated jetways

I do debugging and documentation of animated jetways. I helped to make them for EDDF and enable more aircraft to use them. There are at least 2 kind of animated jetways in Flightgear which are technically different. Both are made by the same author(skyop).


I did build a hardware cockpit panel with EFIS,MCP and radio for FlightGear:

(GPL) firmware for the atmega32 microcontroller:

new germanwings livery for A320,A319...

(quick & dirty)


  • 3300 object locations in Slovenia
  • map more building heights / levels


I accept donations. Contact me via Forum:pommesschranke or Wiki if you like to make a donation via Paypal. Making scenery needs a fast PC.
