About this file

La Rochelle is a city in southwestern France and a seaport on the Bay of Biscay, a part of the Atlantic Ocean. It is the capital of the Charente-Maritime department.

The city is connected to the Île de Ré by a 2.9-kilometre (1.8-mile) bridge completed on 19 May 1988. Its harbour opens into a protected strait, the Pertuis d'Antioche.

La Rochelle possesses a commercial deep water harbour, named La Pallice. The large submarine pens built during World War II still stand there, although they are not in use. La Pallice is equipped with oil unloading equipment, and mainly handles tropical wood. It is also the location of the fishing fleet, which was moved from the old harbour in the centre of the city during the 1980s.

La Rochelle also maintains strong links with the sea by harbouring the largest marina for pleasure boats in Europe at Les Minimes, and a rather rich boat-building industry which includes Amel Yachts.

La Rochelle has a very big aquarium, and a small botanical garden (the Jardin des plantes de La Rochelle).

The Calypso, the ship used by Jacques-Yves Cousteau as a mobile laboratory for oceanography, and which was sunk after a collision in the port of Singapore (1996) is now on display (sadly rotting) at the Maritime Museum of La Rochelle.

One of the biggest music festivals in France, "FrancoFolies", takes place each summer in La Rochelle, where Francophone musicians come together for a week of concerts and celebration. 2004 marked the 20th anniversary of this event. The French Socialist Party has held its annual summer convention (Université d'été) in La Rochelle since 1983.

Addon history:

v1.0: initial release

v1.1: fix missing autogen buildings

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: 8283 files

after: 847 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

- fix some flickering issues

v2.1: Fix some remaining texture flickering issues

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

v3.2: Change LODs settings

    Sorry for my stupid question: So you changed the LOD for your sceneries. I guess this means "level of detail", but what exactly is the impact of this change ?

    Bravo pour cette belle réalisation, je connais et on s'y croirait. Je veux essayer de faire la même chose pour les deux villles de mon département (Corrèze) Tulle et Brive la Gaillarde. Existe-til un tuto ? D'avance merci.
