About this file

  • Essen-Zentrum
  • Aluhütte
  • RWE stadium
  • Schloss Borbeck
  • Essen-Burgaltendorf
  • Villa Hügel
  • Grugahalle and Messe
  • Essen-Steele
  • Essen-Überruhr
  • Essen-Werden
  • Zeche Zollverein
  • Rhein-Ruhr Zentrum
  • Hattingen-Niederwenigern
  • Bochum-Zentrum
  • Ruhr-Universität
  • Sternwarte Bochum
  • Essen-Huttrop
  • Hattingen-Zentrum
  • Gelsenkirchen-Zentrum
  • Bottrop-Tetraeder
  • Bottrop-Skihalle
  • Dortmund-Zentrum
  • Gelsenkirchen-Arena
  • Wuppertal-Elberfeld
  • Sender Wuppertal-Katernberg
  • Bochum-Ruhrstadion
  • Bochum-Ruhrpark

    really great! Maybe you will find the desire to add Kettwig. You often fly over it in the direction of Düsseldorf. ;-)

    Thanks. I tried that but for a couple of reasons it didn't work out.

    Thank you for th update! Is it possible to remove the Google Earth trees in e.g. Dortmund? They are a lot brighter than the generic trees (and may have also a bit of an impact on performance).

    No, currently there isn't any way to do that. Even Microsoft included them in their photogrammetry.

    Sounds like a performance issue. You could disable single areas of this scenery and see if that helps fix the issue

    Bitte Foto von Dortmund, hoffentlich komplete Photogrammery von Dortmund, auch Umgebung.

    Only the city centre of Dortmund is currently included. Complete photogrammetric cities are not feasilble for a number of reasons (file size, performance, offset issues etc).

    Dortmund may be included in the next update. But aren't there separate mods for the stadiums available already? Of course I could easily include the stadiums.

    All important stadiums in the Ruhrgebiet, but not the Veltins Arena.

    I would love to do Tetraeder but I would need a model. Photogrammetry doesn't look good there.
