RAF Honington FS2020

For those that use FS2020 I released my Honington scenery for the new sim today. It features Johns AI Tornado converted to static models, much like the updated the Coningsby and Lakenheath scenery with the Typhoons and Eagles. It can be downloaded here: https://flightsim.to/file/12544/egxh-raf-honin...

Re: RAF Lakenheath for MSFS2020

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 everythi...

Re: RAF Lakenheath for MSFS2020

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... Thanks Yes default as they blend in perfectly with the surrounding terrain and...

Re: RAF Coningsby for MSFS2020

Thanks a lot, Ian. So I am truly interested in how to get my RAF Brüggen scenery into MSFS - this will be a real improvement and I am looking very forward to it. Only headache is the amount of Mirosoft Upgrades within a short time and my doubt in a reliable working MSFS.... We'll see... I guess it ...

Re: RAF Coningsby for MSFS2020

@ Ian: Did you change anything complex regarding your models and textures to make them look so extremly real? Or does the MSFS engine render this colours and shadows automatically? This appearance is unbelievable. All textures and models are the same as the P3D version however I added PBR materials...

Re: RAF Coningsby for MSFS2020

As Pete said, I think one of the master problems will be the terrain. Guys, as soon as you are able to bring back (military) live into MSFS, I will buy this sim and only because of this! Ian, how did you manage the curved runways, please? This is outstanding work, the shots are stunning! You can cr...

Re: Goodbye to LODs?

Welding common vertices were certainly effective in FS9 Ian, the tests we did at ACG and the results we got afterwards confirmed that. Microsoft said they batch welded vertices in FSX at the time, so it was not so important in that sim version and presumably after. John Microsoft implemented draw c...

Re: RAF Coningsby for MSFS2020

Your scenery looks great in MSFS, Ian. However, does anyone else get irritated by the tendency of HDR graphics to wash-out colours and give a filtered look to everything? It's something I first noticed with P3Dv4, but at least in P3D it can be turned off (and, IMO, is much better for it), but MSFS ...

Re: RAF Coningsby for MSFS2020

That's a major breakthrough Ian - well done. I know you told me off-line, that Pete managed the conversion of my FSX F-15's to enable them to work in FS2020 and hat's off to him for doing it. I know you said that there are still some glitches, but Is it too early to write up a step by step guide to...

Re: Goodbye to LODs?

LODS are only necessary nowadays for really high poly model such as aircraft. For a lot of my scenery models it just isn't worth for the extra draw call's. In fact Coningsby for P3D and MSFS2020 have no LODS and no issues with performance. Draw calls are the biggest hit on FPS for me and then textur...

Re: A brand new MS Flight Simulator is coming...

I will give my thoughts having developed and used the sim for nearly a year. When it comes to default aircraft I will give you they don't feel great to fly but I could say the same for default FSX/P3D aircraft. I do have the MB339 for FS2020 and it is fantastic and I imagine once the developers get ...

Re: A brand new MS Flight Simulator is coming...

So it looks the same, as far as aircraft are concerned, with the exception of RAMP_GA_EXTRA and GATE_EXTRA. Steve I have both of my parking files from P3D for Coningsby and Lakenheath both showing in the sim. I just pasted the parking and taxi links from one version to the other and it works. Only ...

I have been busy the last couple of weeks finishing the P3D Coningsby for Johns Typhoon but also converting the scenery to Fs2020. Here is a screen of how it is so far. The most time consuming part for me is that I am slowly adding PBR textures to the models to take advantage of the rendering engine...

Re: ACG Airbase Color Blend

It has the same properties, I just don't know if I can create a new one as EGWZ will not exist in the sim. I will see if I can port over the Alconbury ADE file.

Re: ACG Airbase Color Blend

Kind of re-opening this thread as the New simulator has lead me to visit all of our favorite Cold War Airbases. Alconbury has seen a ton of construction with condos and homes being built all over the old base. This will be a case of a need still for custom PR /Ortho to be included with the Airbase ...
