Thank you for this add-on !!!

I have a question....
I have to learn how to make tiles for this new version 2016.
I don't understant yet how to make the "elevation file" (000471.elv file in your add-on)

Could you explain to me how to write (or compil??) this kind of file) ??

(sorry for my bad English, I'm french)...

I'm planning to make a new "CSG-Kourou-base" for Orbiter 2016 but I' think I have a lot of work first to understand how it works...

Thank you

I tried it and it doesn't look as good as the Orbiter 2010 version which was Ascension Island v.2.1 or just called Wideawake International, no offence intended but it looks plain compared.

My changes to ELV files were only made ​​to make the airstrips flat as much as possible.

I used tileedit(Utils\tileedit.exe),this automatically created a Elev_mod files , the resolution of the elevations remained at level 13.

I downloaded the tile directly from yahoo map and I changed " manually " to fit the new version of Orbiter .

This can help to split the tile in the right way:

I use the translator,I'm italian

Wideawake International is a fictional futuristic base. This addon is Ascension Island pretty much as it looks today, from what I can tell. Additional buildings could easily be added to it to put it in the near future.

The quote above implies that Elev_mod tiles without corresponding Elev tiles don't work. I guess you are working with high-res textures, because according to treeman, the Elev layer tile at /13/000278/000471.elv does not exist in the release distribution *.tree archive. This is what Elev.tree in release distribution consists of in summary:

I agree. No usable hangers or anything. 2010 is way better.

I'm not sure what the problem is here. You realize that Ascension Island is a real island, right? There's no hangers or launch pads on the real Ascension Island for you to launch anything. This isn't the 2016 version of Wideawake.

I think this is really a mistake many may suffer from.

For those who don't know, please note that WHAP contributed Wideawake's files to the ORL project years ago, so it still is in the current OMP distribution. Since the current plan is to make OMP 2016 compatible, there is also the plan to do the same to WIA (this is also one of the reasons why I'm working on treeman's base conversion feature). Textures are converted already, elevation is the next step:

The Base blacks out when you zoom in close to it, along with other issues. Needs to be fixed.

Great to have a nice base with good textures that blend in with Orbiter 2016.

How does your Island look so good? My 2010 Wideawake ascension Isalnd's hills and mountain have squares around them?
