Mistake near Lake Constance

Postby tabaluga6 » Mon May 11, 2020 4:04 pm

Hello,

i found a big mistake near " Lake Constance" in the triangle of countries -South Germany/Austria/Switzerland. There's a big lake that doesn't belong there.

Thanks I'll fix it. That river exploded out of it's shoreline trying to slope downhill.

Thank you,
but i found some more mistakes:
near Cameri airport in northern Italy- the river Ticino has a very big jet fountain instead a normal watercourse. And if you follow to Milano City there is a very, very big Prelli Tower inside.

Regards
Peter

I'm pretty sure i've got the Ticino spike 'jet fountain' fixed in the next update. What is the ver very big Prelli Tower? Can you post a screenshot? I'm assuming you mean a custom model that's not that big in real life :)

sorry,
I meant the Generali Tower in Milano, you forgot to built the Pirelli Tower next door. Your Generali Tower is 2823 feet high, in reality it's 580 feet high.

Ok, got it. There's quite a few legacy FSX buildings that are not to scale still in the scenery. Feel free to let me know about more or if buildings got removed / demolished!

Hi again,
no problem. The most buildings in EURW are out of real scale. For instance all buildings in Florence -Duomo, Palazo Pitti , Central- Station etc. When I see those buildings I scale them by myself with ModelConverterX. So sometimes I have a lot to do.

Thanks for letting me know about those buildings scale, i'll make a ticket for those you mention. I'm aware that a lot of our custom city landmark models are out of scale. Some of these models date back to FS9 (think before google earth and a measure tool) and are in dire need of updates!
