    New member here ... lured in by a post at Avsim suggesting you guys were working on new UK photoscenery.

    Most of my time is spent in Prepar3D or FSX-SE, generally I keep SE for photo/ESI and P3D for Orbx.
    Also Xplane, DCS and a bunch of others going back to the DOS years.

    I've worked on terrain for combat sims a long time ago (Longbow II, FA18 etc) but never had the time to get into FSX scenery.
    I'm best writing code/using spreadsheets rather than artistic manipulation of stuff Smile

    Hi Keith,
    and welcome to the madhouse! whilst some of us here are beta testers and mike has made the whole of the uk and I believe Ireland, we are not code writers so maybe we can help you do some stuff and vice versa. Imagery allowing we currently scan down to .25m / pixel, i have in some places manged even better but it requires huge amounts of Ram and I currently only have 16gb's.
    I live in the South of France others here are in Finland, Italy, Spain and a little known place called Wales, you might have heard of it Smile. We mostly make stuff for FSX/P3d . There are plenty of pics of our stuff in the scenery creation area plus the photos area
    Make yourself at home we look forward to hearing how you get on.

    dcs world?? i have some version of it but cannot even get my joystick to work properly , i have the same problem with x plane, however fsx is plug and play so my joystick works like it does with all the other games -- perfectly. why do these 2 guys have to use different settings from the "norm" ?

    Hi Keith,

    Welcome to Simhaven and the gang. Im originally from West Wales but now living in Central Italy. Over the past 3 years I have managed to make over 500 GBs of photo real scenery using a FREE fantastic piece of software called FS Earth Tiles, FSET.

    Your in good hands here Keith and if I can help in any way just ask.

    Cheers, Mike.
