I’ve recently discovered the joy of orthophoto’s and with it a sense of awe I hadn’t experienced in a while in a flight sim.
But I was quickly confronted with one rather annoying aspect of ortho’s…
And the list goes on and on, making the vast majority of those bush strips unplayable.
So, I’ve decided to tackle the problem, at least try to. I realised it wasn’t just about correcting the alignment, most of the surrounding vegetation was gone, along with the “bush strip” feeling.
It wasn’t easy to find reference pics for these strips so I just tried to make them blend nicely with their surroundings.
I hope to share a first batch within the next couple of days.
They are not all bush strips, some are just the Mudspike Air Delivery FBO’s in FSE
