• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

MSFS EHEH - Eindhoven Airport

well, usually building have 5 facades, and the 5th facade is the most impotent in my opinion because as a simmer of a flight simulator you probably always will se this facade, so make each roof unique is impotent, using tiling of seamless texture will be visible so that why I'm trying to brake the patterns by using a combination of an aerial imagery that will give spacial characteristic to each roof and the tiling texture that will detail it more then what you get in the aerial. the problem is that it cost in storage, but I can sacrifice that in term of visual result (someone told me when you creating a scenery think about the system spec that users will use 2 years from now so probably the storage will be in the reasonable side) and I'm try not to overkill, the object that I uploaded here have 2 roof, the big roof is 4096X2048 and the small roof is 4096X1024 so I can marge them into one 4K texture and there will be some space left for other texture

over the runway I will place opacity texture (tiling) over the aerial imagery of the runway (and yes, it required also the cleaning of the aerial imagery from shadows,taxiline signs aircraft, the taxilines and signs will be added as a separated layer)
I think I using this methodology because I get used to it during P3D/FSX secenry development and somehow it give you full control over the result you want to get from the ground
I remember that when I started working on ground polys I came across this image that explains how the layers work

overall you can insert the ground poly as a custom object to MSFS if you are using it as projected mesh
and you can use generic Asobo texture but I prefer to make the generic texture and placing outside the simulator, this way I can model it and control the placement' size' proportion of each tile (let say we are talking about concrete apron tiles). and they should be half transparent so the aerial imagery will be visabale (I'm trying to avoid the repeating of the texture pattern by braking it)

this is my texturing layer that I made back then to LLER
April update, it's been quiet slow because I took some time off.
Most of the time spent on the hangar modeling
Hopefully that now I can get back and do much more progress during May
and even start placing the objects inside the simulator and to see some results






so most of the progress has been done on the air base side and hopefully that soon this part will be done
