  • A quick look at Flat Point

    Here’s another fix locked in: I don’t think Flat Point is in X-Plane natively, but there is a mod for it here. If there are any urgent issues that need fixing in the ortho – let me know, and I’ll… Read More ›

  • Thames is a bit too mainstream for me

    I’ve been looking at the airports around the Coromandel again, particularly since I land at Whitianga and Thames a lot with Flight Simulator Economy. One thing that has always annoyed me is the hard cut that occurs when rivers hit… Read More ›

  • Chatham Islands!

    An X-Plane community member, Chris messaged me the other day to highlight their scenery for the Chatham Islands. The scenery can be found here. The scenery itself doesn’t come with any ortho, so users have been adding their own. To… Read More ›

  • Water way to go…

    Another area of focus has been to improve some of the harbours that have airports. Currently in X-Plane these are often masked out and become deep blue sea straight off the shoreline. The new scenery will improve this in areas…. Read More ›

  • Various changes!

    Over the past couple of days I’ve spent my free time fixing up a few things. Mainly around Queenstown and the central North Island. One area of interest was a dis-colouration of Tongariro and Ruapehu. Fixing the colours is a… Read More ›

  • Progress Update: Milford Sounds

    The warped imagery around milford sound has been replaced. This is what it used to look like: Now I’ve replaced the ArcGIS imagery with some LINZ:

  • Meltford Sounds

    Next I’ll be working on the Milford Sounds, an area I’ve never been happy with. There seems to be quick a few issues with this area which I couldn’t get my head around a few years ago. Lazy me. Here’s… Read More ›
