Title: VFR on Lario project
Post by: Aldo Della Vedova on 18.09.12, 10:40
:) Dear friends simmers and lovers of Como Lake - Italy,

We are pleased to bring to your attention our project "VFR on Lario", which began last year.
With its 17 locations, this work intends to cover the entire area of the lake and surrounding mountainswith land photoreal (multiseasons and night) mounted on exceptional and realistic meshes.
An accurate and widespread autogen, along with many other library objects and dedicated ones by GMax,complete the best vision in detail. Finally, the inclusion of seaplanes AI traffic give you a great sense of realism when flying VFR in sight.
The project, clearly ambitious, will require adequate time for its completion, but anyway, we are still confident to finalize it as soon as possible.

Below is a link that will provide interested parties a more detailed description, updated to the 7th scenery already issued
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/38829151/FS9/VFR%20on%20Lario_7.pdf

enjoy your flights to Como Lake of Italy!

by Aldo  ;)(objects), Daniele  ;)(photoreal and meshes), Gian Mario  ;)(autogen&SBuilder) and, sometime, Diego
PS: those who want to join us, to improve and accelerate the development or test, is very welcome!

a "summer" greeting at all  ;D
I'd like to reassure friends following this project (which has over 11,500 downloads in total, pardon me the digression  :P) that B4 the 14th scenery is "processing" although a bit 'slow, because of the particularities of this area of Lecco  ::) (overpasses , bridges, railway station, etc.) in addition to the large number of houses that exceeds the Autogen limit (300/tile) and must be integrated  8) with library, generic building etc ... and finally the summer does not help to speed up!
However, with a little 'patience we hope to complete this third last scenery, at the turn of the holidays.  :)
I attach a couple of images with state of the art with respect to Lecco  :o
Bye to all and ... happy holidays!  :laugh:
;)  Aldo

:) Hello FSNordic friends
Going back to the previous, I confirm the continuation with the penultimate scenery A3 (Annone lake, Cornizzolo mounth and high Brianza areas), that will not have many specific details except the overpass of the highway to mount Barro and some gliders in the air.
Then the 17th and last scenery (SE inland Como lake, from  Montorfano to Pusiano lakes), even here there will not be special things with the exception of the airport AVL (Aeroclub Volovelistico Lariano) entitled to Giancarlo Maestri. In fact, today it is just uploaded a "foretaste" of this runway, in a "smooth & light" for FS9 standard, without photo-realistic and special meshes: a small tribute to users who use Flight Simulator 2004 without adding mesh details. In fact it is an addition to the similar small jobs (Italian) made ​​with the same principle that do not accept non-standard mesh elevations (Como_idroscalo, Dervio scenery and Calcinate del Pesce of Feb2011, AirFolies Casorezzo of gen2011, Legnano scenery 1 and 2 of Feb-Mar2011, Turbigo power station of set2011 and the three Cameri sceneries of ott2011)
Of course, the airport AVL G. Maestri now posted, will be duly adjusted to photo-realistic terrain and elevations in the last A2 scenery of VFR of Lake Como project.
bye
;) Aldo

thanks Jari  :)
I sincerely appreciate your compliments and I'm glad to read your going to install the sceneries of this project  :thmbup:.
Of course, there are gaps in what we are passionate but not professionals  ::). The 952 tiles of photo-realistic multi-season terrain that make up the 17 scenaries, with thousands of models and the autogen, weigh a bit on the "ability to fly", but I hope that with a next-generation processor you can enjoy this work.
thanks again

Title: project finished ... adjustments started
Post by: Aldo Della Vedova on 05.12.13, 10:36
hello to all FSNordic friends  :), and mainly to ones interested in this job  :D.

even though the project has been completed, at least in the first issue, we continue with the "adjustments" ... in particular with the sceneries created at the beginning.
Who likes it, can download A1v1 (update A1, Como), which contains a general review of autogen objects with addition of others in the library, including the station and trains.
Next informations for the adjustment will follow.
Obviously, flying with "old" processors may suffer from degraded performance,  :( unfortunately.

greetings to all

Hello to all  :)
after a long time from the latest news on the project "VFR on LARIO"
I wish like to inform you that, thanking the work of an enthusiast simmer,
it is possible to make a "conversion", to fly "VFR on Lario" with Flight Simulator X too.
On the following see the link to a "guide", where the installer simply summarizes what done to achieve the purpose.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1aK6akGeT2vCkJVYE7AD5ndUkWMMhU5ed/view?usp=sharing

Unfortunately, still flying with the old and dear FS9, I'll be not in conditiones to provide more details or specifications.

best greeting from Lake Como
;) Aldo
