Status update

After spending almost 10 weeks in hospital, our son could finally come home this week. It’s very good to have the family all at home again, not having to travel to the hospital continuously. The only small downside is that our sleep is now interrupted in the night, but that’s normal with a small baby […]

Time out

As you have probably noticed I haven’t been active at all recently with my tools or on FSDeveloper. I already reported before that we bought a house and are busy renovating it. But on top of that our second son was born 3 months too early. So that means that at the moment we step […]

Busy

As you might have noticed already from the lack of activity on this blog and the fewer updates to my tools, I’m a bit busy at the moment. We have just bought a house and next week we finally get the keys. But the house also needs some modernization before we can move in, so […]

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.

But your vector data only contains the location of the gas stations and no information about the heading at all. How to place these objects realistically in your scenery? I have added a new step […]

Autogen object distortion

Sometimes a very simple question on the forum can lead to interesting discoveries. In this case the question was why autogen buildings that look fine in Annotator are distorted in FS. Although the answer from an expert was that this is normal, I decided to have a look into this issue. In the end that […]

Oops, wrong position

A little while ago a bug was reported in the position accuracy of the scenProc placed autogen library objects. After some debugging it indeed turned out that the location of these objects was wrong. And the bigger the size of the library object, the bigger the position offset. I have now fixed this issue, so […]
