MAMUDESIGN MARINAS - Boats and Piers in the World 

Marinas is a global scenery that place static boats and piers in marinas, sea, lakes and rivers, covering entire countries, data driven by Open Street Map Data Basic

breackwater implentation is also included

Actual coverage includes: North America (Canada and USA) Central America (Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Belize, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Panama, Nicaragua) All the Carribeans (Cuba, Bahamas, Jamaica, Haiti, Republica Dominicana, porto Rico, Guadalupa, Dominica, Antigua and so on ) Western Europe (Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Great Britain and Ireland, Suisse, Germany, Benelux, Poland, Austria) Eastern Europe (balkans region) Northern Europe (Danmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland) Australia and New Zealand

 

KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS PACKAGE IS "AUTOGENERATED" VIA A LOT OF ALGORITHMS.

While most of the time the algorithm works fine, this package cannot be better than manually created scenery ( like other boats packages: Project Costline-Italy, Vessels by SeaFront Simulation or Sunken Boats by Bjian)

The purpose of this addon is to provide a GLOBAL coverage

The package is gonna be loaded in the sim hierarchy at low level, so any other package more advanced/manually created will be able to exclude mine in their area

  

FEATURING:

- boat piers in the coutries included in the coverage 

- boats surrounding the piers

- 30ish new boats models

- random  static  boats placed nearby marinas (the marinas are defined by leisure=marina tag in Open Street Map)

 

Per se, this package shouldn't have any big compatiblity issue with other boats packages,

of course if an Airport Package has created a Marina in the vicinity of the Airport, or you have specific boats packages in the area, they will overlap. Is up to the other devs sharing compatibility patches (i can created those for them, but I need their scenes to work with)

 

KNOWN ISSUE:

- The placing algorithm for piers and static boats rely on piers drawn as LINES, piers drawn as polygon are likely to have uncorrect implementation. If there is someone that can create the centerline of those polygons, will be much appreciated!

- Boats are placed in every pier according that the "mooring" tag in Open Street Map is not "no" or "commercial/industrial". Open Street Map has great potential, but requires the data to be complete in order to grant the maximum possible realism. I encourage you to explore the Open Street Map world and add as much data as possible in the places you are familiar with!

- sometimes you can see boats that can't really fit or maneuver in that pier, I'm working on that!

 

INSTALLATION

Unzip in community and fly everywehere theres a marina, you gonna see boats!

The package as been compiled with SU10 latest beta, should work in SU9 without issues

 

COPYRIGHT NOTICE:

All the boat models in this package come from freely availble sources on the internet 

Most of them are thanks to superspud library @flightsim.to, I have further optimized them to obtain the required lods for bulk placement
(i'm trying to retrive all the licences!)
