    Autogen trees and buildings with Annotator

    Post by ddavid on Thu Jul 07, 2016 8:24 pm

    Since Mike's original intro to Annotator - Thanks, Mike! - I've been trying it out a bit more...

    First, with trees. Here's the Annotator screen with various trees/shrubs for Glenforsa (Mull):

    and here's what it looks like in FSX:

    Then I tried some Row Houses - this is Annotator again. The coloured rectangles are where the Row House autogen will be placed:

    and here's the result in FSX:

    Notice that the autogen Row Houses are chosen from the Regionalised autogen buildings by the FSX engine. You can influence - and I use the term loosely! - the number of floors of the autogen's buildings and that's about it.

    If you want specific buildings - or trees/shrubs - then I think you have to place them by hand as scenery objects. I'm not 100% sure of this as Annotator has so many wrinkles that it's going to be a steep learning curve...

    Thanks again Mike - you were right, this bl**dy photoscenery is habit forming...

    Cheers - Dai. Cool

    its a pity that one is restricted to the stock buildings, i may be wrong but I seem to remember coming across a load of free buildings somewhere that replace the stock ones, but thanks Dai for once again removing the mysteries of how easy it can be to place buildings
