scenProc autogen building bug

This week I have fixed a bug in scenProc that could result in autogen buildings showing incorrectly in Prepar3D. This especially affects buildings that are oriented exactly north-south or east-west. They would show with a roof of the correct size, but with the walls too small, like in the image below. This bug has been […]

Autogen object size distortion

That autogen objects have a distortion in their rotation is something we found out 6 years ago already. But until recently I was not aware that not only the rotation of the objects is distorted, also their sizes can be different then you would expect from looking at the objects in the Annotator tool. I […]

Merging autogen configurations

Now that I can use scenProc to easily create new autogen, the urge to add custom autogen models increases as well. To make the autogen even more realistic I want to add custom roofs, custom vegetation models, etcetera. But all these modifications to the autogen configuration files give developers some headache when trying to deploy […]


For the Nantucket project I have used the scenProc feature detection function to get the autogen trees from the imagery. But would a similar approach also work for scrubs? First I tried with polygonal autogen vegetation. The detection of the polygons went OK, but the density of the resulting autogen in FSX was much too […]

The Nantucket tutorials

Over the last I have been using the island of Nantucket (Massachusetts) as a sandbox to try all kind of autogen techniques and to develop new features of scenProc. Coincidentally Bill Womack is working on a scenery of Nantucket airport¬†as well. So my test autogen project will even end up in a real product. And […]

Place points along line updated

I have updated the PLACEPOINTSALONGLINE step of scenProc today. So if you grab the new development release tomorrow you will notice that the step takes two more arguments. So your existing configuration files need to be updated! Please check the updated manual for all details of the changes. Below I will give a short summary. […]
