Title: [WIP] Reunion Island
Post by: Acetone on June 15, 2015, 09:28:51 am
Since I paused a bit on the Alps scenery to work on Talkeetna, I've also decided to take a look around the world to see if I can find a fresh area to cover, a nice location to test stuff :)
And I found something, and was not expecting it. Here is the game, guess where this place is located. First hint: for a good result, some other tree species will probably be needed...

Some shots :

Lovely and smooth runways merging for soft landings  :P

(Don't try to open these with Outerra, Imgur delete geographic coordinates of pictures when they are imported)

Careful planning (making the second runway at the exact same elevation as the first one) and few centimeters level nodes adjustments.
+ The area is relatively flat so I was lucky :)

Yep, it's a tropical island with many common points with Montserrat, but it's not in the same part of the world :)

Hawaii?!
Nope, but the Volcano (as the Kilauea) is one of the most active in the world :)

if we could have more colors and variety vegetation outerra,,, it would be much better.
I once read of Cameni it was not so easy to distribute throughout the plant variety in the world,, but at least have a tab or box where to get, other trees, palm, coconut, etc,, and have the option of marking single preferred areas for these types of vegetation are placed,, would be great (not by default, but when añadimo like to outerra a mod).
to be included in pending cases .. :)
let's take a stroll through the mysterious island of Acetone

Hey Acetone, I`d like to get into scenery building in Outerra as well. can I try making the small town of Saint Philippe on the South East corner of the island? Maybe it turns out good!

BTW, is there any specific asset set you`ll use for this scenery?

I want to make scenery too, but don't have Acetones patience. I'm waiting until roads auto-merge instead of having to painstakingly hand level stuff.  :facepalm:

Oh man, completely forgot I was planning to work on this. JBLM and stuff like that, didn't had the time...

Of course, you can test scenery crafting in this area, the village you choose is perfect for that :)
Here is a cache of the (small) work I did in the island, you'll have the airport and a few roads, but as you will see, nothing really advanced at all.

For buildings, I think you should use some of the smaller houses of the World2Xplane Polish and British houses. You'll see that only a limited set of models set very well with these kind of middle sized houses. Just check the sizes you need and delete the others models to have a more simple building list. Check the ones right next to the LFNA airport in the Alps scenery, these are probably the ones you want to use.
Outside of this, try add things step by step, don't try to do everything at once, find some good music, and you'll see that it's very relaxing :)
Experiment stuff when you get bored, it's your place so you can do what you want with it  ^-^

This island may be the perfect place for collaborative scenery development. If you need any help, don't hesitate to ask (and don't forget to post pictures of your progress !)

I`m really experienced with building scenery for games (I make routes for Trainz Simulator)

I think when Outerra reaches that ease of tool use, modders will be all over it.

True! And I`ll be one of the first! :P

By the way, why the short draw distance on the rivers?
