Post by rocket_26_ »

For those that use FS2020 I released my Lakenheath scenery for the new sim today.

It can be downloaded here:

Wow !!!
Another reason for me to change to MSFS as soon as all my favorite aircraft will appear in this sim as well.
Ian, do you use custom trees on the airbase or the MSFS default one? They look a little like default...

Yes default as they blend in perfectly with the surrounding terrain and trees and you can set how high quality you like in the settings.
You can also change type, scale, density etc in the sim tools.

Thank you very much for reply. Ian, you say "type". As around Brüggen, I may remember there are also pines around Lakenheath. Does MSFS really generate the european pine type like in reality? I don't think so. But the screens look stunning!

I have just had a look at the types and everything but pines its seems.

It is easy enough to use your own trees, but it is more efficient to place them as a library as opposed to one scene from what I have read. Would make it easier to place in small groups and then snap to ground. Large scenes are a pain as need to tweak everything as the ground is not flat, which is exactly what I am doing now with Honington.

I think the way I design my trees is no more state of the art - using simple crossed vertical planes will not do the trick anymore.
But I think I can come to terms with the default MSFS trees...

Hi,

Just an update on how we are doing with the MSFS 2020 AI for Ian's Sceneries, including the recently released RAF Lakenheath.

After accepting the fact, that there will be some issues remaining because of the infancy of the MSFS 2020 AI system and using Legacy FSX AI models within it, both Ian and I, feel that it is better to have something populate these fabulous sceneries rather than nothing. Likewise, Johns JYAI models albeit for FSX, look pretty darn good in FS2020 and that's even with all of the current limitations.

Lakenheath is already modified for the JYAI F-15s and over the next couple of days or so, I will be giving instructions on how to make the AI F-15 package that can be installed into MSFS FS2020.

Ian is currently working on his RAF Honington Scenery and this will also be JYAI Tornado ready. It is anticipated that Ian will make available, an updated version of RAF Coningsby that is also JYAI Typhoon ready.

Those of you interested can make a start, by downloading the JYAI FSX F-15 package here on MAIW. Once you have done this, extract the ' SimObject ' folder ( containing the 4 F-15 Aircraft variants ) from the zip and place it onto your desktop. More instructions will follow.
