KSJC is now 99% done as we enter beta testing this week. I hope to have it on Avsim by Friday night at the latest, but likely sooner. If anyone here is familiar with the airport and would like to beta test, shoot me a PM. (Aaron?)

Here's a quick tour around, so sit back, relax and enjoy the flight...

Oh, very nice! You included my outdoor viewing area in Terminal C! You even included a screen shot from there. Bless you!

Looks very nice indeed! Personally I feel it may look a bit better if you changed the grass textures though - from a distance it looks like there are no textures at all - just block green.

I agree.

I really hope you do RNO next- I would love a realistic scenery since I fly through there a couple times a year to get to Tahoe!

That looks fantastic. I fly in there all the time with a DC10F. Don't have a flight sim though so I cannot test it for you. I would love to see a movie of your sim in action. We always fly the El Nido arrival to 30L and depart 30R with the Loope departure MVA transition. Give it a shot.

Regards,

EMC

It's hard to see in the pictures but theres some texture to the grass. I'll try to have a more photo real ground in the first update, but this is visually the best solution that I've tested so far with my limited resources. I might need to hire someone to help me in that department.

EMC, I'll make a video if you promise to take some cockpit pictures on your next approach into SJC.  Smile

The scenery was uploaded to AVSIM tonight. It may take up to 24 hrs to show up, but keep an eye out for it.

Looks nice - but how frame-hungry is it?

Each computer is different, but I tweaked it as much as I possibly could and I average 20+ fps.

Well I specifically went out and bought that particular processor. I'm not sure how to tell what you have in a store built computer.

UPDATE: If you are experiencing low FPS, try moving the "ga planes.bgl" from the scenery folder. Initial beta testing did not include the static GA aircraft as they were added last minute. You may be able to get a 50% increase in fps depending on your system.

I think it looks great, but personal preference drives me to not like the re-textured grass, and it looks like it'll be a framerate killer.

I'm consistently getting 19-20 frames with a relatively midrange system. 2.66 GHz, 1.5 GB RAM, ancient nVidia MX420 card.

SJC4Me... It looks real nice, too bad I don't play flight simulator anymore otherwise I would've downloaded it. I've been to SJC alot so it's fun to see an add-on scenery for FS9 that looks familiar to me.  Smile


Live to Fly.
