Not nearly as finished as it seems yet, but it's coming out quite good.

Looking very nice, Umberto...

Just a question...
What did you decide to do, regarding the textures which, as I recall, was 4096x4096? Did you "just" resize them, or what was the procedure? Was it possible to resize them, and remapping them? (<-- that seems like quite alot of work, if that's the case?)

Anyway - I was just curious, what the procedure was?! Smiley

Thanks for the preview!

It definitely looks different in FS9 than in FSX, obviously, but it's coming out really well at the moment. Umberto, I know you're really tired of these kinds of questions, but as a general estimation, can we expect the FS9 release before November? If not December?

And as a general note for others and for me, just remember if Umberto doesn't put up any updates about the status of the scenery, it doesn't mean nothing's happening. Personally, I like to find out about updates, because I feel like it'll mean that he's closer to completion. In a way that's correct, but not always. He's working on it you guys. But continually plaguing Umberto for status updates isn't going to make the scenery any closer to completion. He'll update status when he's ready, and when there's a large step toward completion since the last update, he'll post something. And if he has the time to give us a picture or two of the current scenery status, he'll do it. I fear all that plaguing Umberto for status updates is going to do is make him feel rushed, but then he won't do as well of a job. Umberto's probably not gonna give into the pressure to quickly get this scenery done, but just let him take his time. As hard as it is for me to be patient, it's something I must exercise until the day I get the email about the newsletter which says that FS9 LAX has been released.

Looking great thus far, Umberto!  The texture resolution is noticeable but wow, it looks great all things considered and a must buy for me.

can we expect the FS9 release before November? If not December?

I'd imagine if it would take them until November or December to finish this, they probably wouldn't be doing it. Cheesy

What did you decide to do, regarding the textures which, as I recall, was 4096x4096? Did you "just" resize them, or what was the procedure?

It's an hybrid approach:

The ground has been entirely redone and remapped to 1024x1024 so, there's no resolution loss at all on ground, and we replicated with (many) polygons the different kind of ground detail textures, that in FSX are made with Shaders. Of course, FS9 doesn't have bump mapping, so the ground look a bit more plain than FSX, but the resolution is all there.

The buildings were made using the original 4096 resized to 1024 textures, because doing a real remapping to 1024 would meant remodeling everything so there is a resolution loss there, but we tried to minimize the visual impact, by adding more detail textures that weren't there in the FSX version, so there's still a lot of custom modeling made specifically for FS9.

Other things like jetways or cars and small details, for example, were already at 1024x1024 in FSX, so they look exactly the same in FS9.
