We're currently finalizing our list of POIs (on other words: VFR models) for FTX Germany South.

To make sure we are not missing anything essential here: Which POIs would you like to see in FTX Germany South? (coverage map attached)

 

Conditions:

  • Please understand that suggesting a POI here does not mean it gets included. However your suggestions will help us to get a balanced set of POIs.
  • POIs suggested should be less than 100m/300ft in height (from ground). Why? Because we already have everything of 100+ meters listed.
  • Please only suggest POIs that stand out when seen from the air. POIs that need to be there to make a place recognizable.
  • Provide coordinates, please! You can add them to your post or (even better) attach a Google Earth KMZ file to your post.

 

Deadline for your suggestions:

Monday, 26th of September (which essentially leaves us the whole weekend)

 

Thank you!

All the Porsche Factories and the new Nurburgring race track including the new track where all the car manufacturers can test.

 

Fast cars moving on these race tracks will be awesome.  Similar to this was done in W16 Airport Addon by you guys

Doesn't JV have a Porsche - I am sure he would love to see all these awesome race tracks with cars in the sim. 

 

Throw in some Orbx Porsches parked near these tracks.

 

Please model all the race tracks in Germany

Heidelberg has some classic architecture

Other areas that could be added, perhaps even as cityscapes in the future:

 

Lake Constance

Rothenburg ob der Tauber

Fussen

Munich

Bamburg

Wurzburg

Garmisch-Partenkirchen

The tallest church in the world can´t be omitted...: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ulm_Minster .

It took only about 500 years to build it, I have hopes Orbx could be faster.

 

Though Frankfurt can be very FPS-demanding (lots of AI traffic plus a huge airport), some details of the city would enhance the (usual) approaches from the east:

I do indeed have a Porsche, but I will be at the Nurburgring in three weeks' time driving my BMW E46 M3 Orbx-sponsored race car (check my profile to see a photo of it).

I very much would like to see the Nurburgring and Spa circuits modelled.

I wonder how you managed to get sponsoring by Orbx... but maybe this is the starting point for lots of fantastic CarFlow attractions?

To have the Ulm Minster displayed would really be great. I assume the developers have already considered to include it, because it is taller then 100 m (see Sascha's OP).

Is this an indication that Orbx has something planned for Belgium? B)

JV - Looking forward on seeing some videos/pics of the Orbx Race Car at Nurburgring.  What race/event you are racing at?

 

Having these racetracks modelled in FTX regions will be amazing to see (especially in VR - flying low and seeing tons of cars racing on it)

Further to Thorsten's post above:

 

The Sinsheim Technik Museum south of Mannheim at  49°14'21.1"N 8°53'57.1"E  has a Concorde and a TU-144 on the roof, as well as many other planes outside.

and the Speyer the Technik Museum has a 747 on poles as well as many other aircraft scattered around   49°18'44.1"N 8°26'44.5"E

Some decent coverage of the Koblenz area would be wonderful as the Mosel and Rhine valley are very popular among VFR pilots, e.g. Deutsches Eck, Festung Ehrenbreitstein, maybe a good selection of the castles and churches along Rhine, Mosel amd Lahn valley like Marksburg, Burg Eltz, Cochem Reichsburg, Nassau castle, Limburg cathedral etc.

Winningen airport near Koblenz ist quite scenic being located on top of steep vinyards - for VFR pilots it would be important to have the radio tower and the A61 brige across the Mosel valley modelled as these define the aerodrome traffic circuit. Maybe you can also add the geysir in Andernach.

Garmisch and the German Alps :D

Would be nice for scenic flights from Garmisch (or Eschenlohe) via Mittenwald and Seefeld to the forthcoming Innsbruck by Jarrad :rolleyes:. For those interested in WW2 history a rendition of Kehlsteinhaus near Berchtesgaden would also be good to see when flying out of Salzburg.

Something from the southwest:

 

- Ford Factory ( Fordwerke.kmz ) + the supplier park in Saarlouis and the nearby steel works ( Dillinger_Huette.kmz ) in the city of Dillingen. Very recognizable industrial park seen from the air. Should look similar to some places in the "Ruhrgebiet" included in Germany North:

 

http://images.google.de/imgres?imgurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.wfus.de%2Fimages%2Fgemeinde%2FDillinger.Huette_700_aus_2011.jpg&imgrefurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.wfus.de%2Fcgi-bin%2Fgsearch.cgi%3Faction%3Dwsearch%26ort%3DDillingen&h=465&w=700&tbnid=Hf82EN9BXN-pcM%3A&docid=1P-CPLkJuctXAM&ei=yNPnV7PDBMmS6QS6j5fADA&tbm=isch&iact=rc&uact=3&dur=1871&page=0&start=0&ndsp=30&ved=0ahUKEwizx5660qrPAhVJSZoKHbrHBcgQMwg7KAgwCA&bih=963&biw=1920

 

00176993B1290781063.jpg

 

 

I think the "Berghalden" which are so typical for any (historic) coal are should already be included as most of them are higher than 100m and should even be included in the mesh as "mountains".

 

 

 

- 2 similar POIs: 1. The historical steel works in Völklingen ( Weltkulturerbe_Voelklingen.kmz ) which is now declared world cultural heritage and thus beautifully illuminated at night:

 

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/9zDEWtN8KmPQKs2rR6uNRsTjKgqatutr4vlMES2A2cg-VdfkJwm0veDtY8TeqVIhLVX013XZ=s660-fcrop64=1,0330025ee3affda0

 

 

                           2. Same thing in nearby city of Neunlirchen ( Alte_Huette_Neunkirchen.kmz )

 

 

 

 

- I don't know how far the coverage area expands to France, but for the case it's really covered, the "Hohe Koenigsburg.kmz" at the eastern edge of the French "Vosges" near the border to Germany (Oberrheingraben):

 

Hochkoenigsburg.jpg

Short question

Would it be possible to incorporate the EDDF airport, the 3rd runway?
Since I have only the standart Airports from FSX and at EDDF the third runway is not present.

 

Cheers

Sebastian

 

As full fat regions always include all Airports according to their current layouts, you can be sure that EDDF will have all the runways it currently has.
