I'm speechless.

 

I'll buy it and run it with the Scenery Config Editor and it'll be fine.  That freebie is a real VAS saver.

 

This scenery is amazing, just amazing.

 

Did you incorporate any of the new buildings in it with the Buildings you were planning on releasing?

Another masterpiece, very impressive!

 

Which airport addon would you recommend for Nice?

 

Cheers

I agree but you have to realise that FranceVFR covers a lot larger area with their PACA regions so naturally in a smaller area you can add more details. I just hope now that they can be used together for a complete awesome photoreal Provence experience.

That's just the issue making me stop buying any FranceVFR stuff. As far as I know their Autogen/Landclass system is basically incompatible to the one used by ORBX. This could be remedied by them submitting their autogen/landclass definitions to ORBX as Aerosoft and some others did, which they however refused. They also could resort to Arno Gerritsen's Autogen Merger which cooperates with ORBX, but they insist on cllnging to their own closed system so far.

Most of the time I find the biggest problem is not so much the landclass or autogen but rather the different color tones of the photoreal used by different developers making it blend rather terrible when you fly over the border between the two. Takes away greatly from the immersion.

Fully agree. It's not only the borderline, it's just that you're virtually crossing from one world into another one. This basically leaves the decision to (i) either base your system on landclass scenery only, or (ii) photoscenery only. I opted for the first one for my present setup, as should be obvious from being around here. I got rid of all photoscenery, except such imbedded into and properly color-fitted to the surrounding landclass, like, say, the Berlin orthoimage imbeedded into GER or John Patch's Vancouver imbedded into PNW.

 

But this is certainly worth a separate thread and I'll not go further into it here. I am sure Maurizio's work will fit well into my present France setup (Base + Vector + OpenLC EU + SimulationData Obstacles and Landmarks, the latter one probably to be placed lower in the Library than Cote d'Azur to avoid clashes).

 

Kind regards, Michael

...Or select a product from a developer that makes their photoscenery compatible with other develpopers work in terms of photocolor. I am thinking 29-palms and Turbulent Designs here :) In any case, I agree that this is a topic for another discussion. Personaly I would never go back to landclass based scenery though. Been in this hobby for over 25 years and landclass based scenery is not the way forward in my opinion (just look at Aerofly). I rather select an area to fly where I know there is plenty good photoscenery available preferably with autoge and seasons. Switzerland Pro for example.

Mike I am the exact opposite, but I appreciate your position.  There is no wrong answer, it is horses or courses.

 

As a developer, I think you basically have to choose one or the other and go with that.  You cannot really do both -- except this cityscape work does come pretty close.  ORBX is decidedly in the landclass-based scenery camp.

Excellent  scenery.

It is going to make Nice an even better base for exploring this scenic area.

Wonderful shots too Iain, thanks for posting.

As someone who lives close to Nice I was wondering if the exact coverage area of the scenery is described somewhere ?

And also will the Allianz Riviera stadium remain under construction in the scenery ? Just wondering since it was opened like 2 years ago and is such a wonderful stadium/landmark.

Thanks for those fantastic screenshots and the great work.

I thank you all so much for your kind comments :)

Here you can see the coverage. About the Allianz Riviera stadium, even if i know it's a cool Landmark to include, i don't think i will have the time to consider it, i have already included l'Archet with the ability to take off and land from there, and also from a luxury yatch anchored near Montecarlo, and expecially the Archet took me a lot of time to model and to adapt to the terrain. Possibly with a patch when the scenery is already released.

Great coverage, Maurizio, and I can fully understand your patch philosophy. Some day you need to share the pleasure (and collect some rewards), before going to the next level of perfection. And... Iains shots really do not look like one of the feared "banana products", which some other providers sell to harvest money far before their products are ready for release...

I am sure you will make a good decision.

Just when I promised myself that I wasn't going to be buying anymore flightsim stuff.!!!!

 

In one of those screenshots I can actually see the street and the house I used to live in near the Hippodrome.

Amazing look.

 

Do you guys think it could be possible to update the aerial image of the new Allianz Riviera football stadium which was inaugurated last year as I see the shots includes "old" work in progress pictures ?

 

Thank you

Acquiring only the Stadium (i mean the oval only without terrain around) with 60 cm of res, yes, it's possible. Only the stadium because it's difficult to paste another terrain image, even little, above the photoreal. It's not said that in despite of having the same resolution the image would fit perfectly with the existent one.

Using autogen configuration merger from Arno I can tell than Orbx and FrVFR sceneries are now fully compatible,and it's  good news

What is the "Arno Autogen Configuration Merger"? I was aware that Earth Simulations had developed such a tool but have not heard of the Arno tool. Can you tell me how to find out more? Thanks.

Now this scenery will make a beautiful approach into Cote d'Azur. One question, does it include the airport, or will it blend well with JUSTSIM Cote d'Azur?

The airport has its own afcad, anyway i suggest to use the scenery along with the JustSim LFMN. It works anyway also with Nice X by Aerosoft, so both the ways are practicables.

Is that the village of St Jeannet to the right of the number two?

It would mean so much to have that village in the scenery.

My Grandparents,mother and relatives lived there.My Aunt still does.

My parents immigrated to Australia in the 60's with my sister and I.After dad died in Australia I flew his ashes over and put them in the cemetery with my Grandparents there in the village.Mum died 2 years ago and so placed her ashes there next to dad and my grandparents.

If anyone ever goes to the region you have to drive to this village.The walk to the summit of the Baou is worth the view of Nice from the summit.

 

Airport of Nice on the coastline visible.

Oh and by the way there is a helipad on the summit as often rock climbers need to get rescued there.If you zoom up on google maps

of the summit you'll see the cement landing pad.
