Angers is a city in western France, about 300 km (190 mi) southwest of Paris. It is chef-lieu of the Maine-et-Loire department and was the capital of the province of Anjou until the French Revolution. The inhabitants of both the city and the province are called Angevins. Not including the metropolitan area, Angers is the third most populous commune in northwestern France after Nantes and Rennes and the 18th in France.

For centuries, Angers was an important stronghold in northwestern France. It was the cradle of the Plantagenet dynasty and became one of the intellectual centers of Europe during the reign of René of Anjou. Angers developed at the confluence of three rivers, the Mayenne, the Sarthe, and the Loir, all coming from the north and flowing south to the Loire. Their confluence, just north of Angers, creates the Maine, a short but wide river that flows into the Loire several kilometres south. The Angers metropolitan area is a major economic centre in western France, particularly active in industry, horticulture, and tourism.[6]

Angers proper covers 42.70 square kilometers (16.5 sq mi) and has a population of 152,960 inhabitants, while around 422,700 live in its metropolitan area (aire urbaine). The Angers Loire Métropole is made up of 29 communes covering 667 square kilometers (258 square miles) with 296,000 inhabitants.

Angers enjoys a rich cultural life, made possible by its universities and museums. The old medieval center is still dominated by the massive château of the Plantagenêts, home of the Apocalypse Tapestry, the biggest medieval tapestry ensemble in the world. Angers is also both at the edge of the Val de Loire, a World Heritage Site, and the Loire-Anjou-Touraine regional natural park.

Addon history:

v1.0: initial release

v2.0: overall optimization:

This is a major update that optimizes the package, as it drastically reduces the number of texture files:

- less files on the package:

before: 11427 files

after: 775 files

- reduced CPU footprint

- reduced loading time at startup

- less CPU load, so it can leads to better perfs depending on the config

- better road traffic integration

v3.0: Fix a big issue with the LOD management system, due to the way Google Earth Decoder places and sizes the tiles. Now, there should not be any FPS issues, and framerate should be better and more consistent

v3.1: Fix texture flickering issues

v3.2: Add a fix for possible CTD issues ( https://flightsim.to/blog/creators-guide-fix-ctd-issues-on-your-scenery )

v3.3: Change LODs settings

v3.4: reduced package size

Remove old angers folder. Extract thalixte-angers  folder into the Community folder.

Salut la communauté. tout d'abord merci pour le fichier. je voulais savoir si c'était normal que j'ai un rendu un peu "cubique" ou si il fallait que je télécharge autre chose? merci pour vos futures réponses
Comme d'hab, superbe travail !
Toujours de bonnes perfs au dessus de 45 fps.

J'aurai simplement aimé avoir Beaucouzé et l'école de voile du lac du Maine ajoutés à la photogrammétrie, comme c'était là-bas que j'ai passé quelques années d'enfance 😉 Oui un petit caprice 😀

Great City, go and take a look at the castle! Great perf as well above 45fps.
Bonjour Thalixte et merci pour ton travail!! 😊
Un vrais plaisir de voler au dessus de ma ville.
merci pour ce travail de conversion mais c'est toujours très localisé centre ville et donc pas vraiment toute la ville, peut-être faudrait t'il renommer le fichier en "Angers centre ville" et non pas Angers tout cours !
Bonjour, et merci 😉 L'outil que j'ai utilisé pour effectuer cette cure d'amaigrissement est le suivant: https://www.reddit.com/r/FS2020Creation/comments/jhvhq0/new_optimisation_tool_for_google_earth_decoder/
Bonjour merci pour cette optimisation, je suis curieux connaitre la méthode que vous avez utilisé pour cette cure d'amaigrissement. En tout cas ... super Job
Merci a vous pour ces belles réalisations.
Vous qui êtes spécialisé dans les grands espaces le secteur de Paris La Défense entre le Pont de Neuilly et la Préfecture des Hauts-de-Seine de Seine est plus que raté par FS2020. Il n y a qu a voir la tronche de l arche de la Def.
Si vous aviez quelques heures à consacrer à ce secteur ca serait pas top sachant que ces un fort point de passage pour Paris CDG.
merci beaucoup pour vos créations
Thank you so much
merci pour ton travail de conversion mais, penses tu étendre à toute la ville d'Angers comme sur googlemap car pour l'instant la limite semble un peu autour du centre-ville. merci à toi.
super boulot. Sans indiscrétion, tu utilises quel logiciel une fois les infos récupérées, pour créer la scène ?
Superbe! Est-ce que les couleurs ont été éditées? Cela me semble mieux intégré que les autres scènes en photogrammétrie que j'ai pu voir...
Est-ce que tu envisagerais de faire une scène pour Nantes sur le même modèle?
Very good THK 5 stars
Magnifique travail!!!!!! manque plus que l'aérodrome de Angers-Marcé ( LFJR)
Superbe, merci beaucoup ! Quel pied.

Vivement une petite scène LFJR 😊
Très belle scène,bien optimisée.bravo!
