About

Capri Photogrammetry, entirely represented in LOD20 (so only for high power pc)

Capri is an island located in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the Sorrento Peninsula, on the south side of the Gulf of Naples in the Campania region of Italy.

The main town Capri that is located on the island shares the name.

It has been a resort since the time of the Roman Republic.

Some of the main features of the island include the Marina Piccola (the little harbour), the Belvedere of Tragara (a high panoramic promenade lined with villas), the limestone crags called sea stacks that project above the sea (the faraglioni), the town of Anacapri, the Blue Grotto (Grotta Azzurra), the ruins of the Imperial Roman villas, and so on..

 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR CORRECT INSTALLATION: Please download rar, and unrar it in community folder: when finished you must find 4 new dirs in community folder (capriestphotogrammetry Lod171720 - capricentrophotogrammetry Lod171720 - capriovestphotogrammetry Lod171720 - CapriFix). Please delete old versions.

Hope you enjoy my work, and please let me know if you find any error/bug.

This is my first release of Capri, i tried to realize all the isle as better as i could.

New optimized version 2.03 with:


- implemented LOD17 only for seeing the isle from long distance (SO NO MORE FLATTEN ISLE FROM FAR). Approaching the isle, and over it, you see only LOD20 for best viewing.
- a full clean & compress process, resulting in small size and number of files.
- Great improvement in Monte Solaro: i worked hardly with Blender in order to  clean the climb as better as i could.

 

FIX correction:  in version 2.02 some areas present default terrain instead of photogrammetry, now this new version 2.03 solve the problem for all the isle. Thx for your comments and please let me know if you find other bugs.

 

Experimentally, this scenery is LOD20 based: i find it looks better and avoid annoying spaces between tiles i found adding lower lods.

Lod17 is implemented only for viewing the isle from a great distance,

 

If you support me i can expand,optimize and correct it with future versions.

This is brilliant! I do not speak of the photogrammetry (which is as good as Google map allows), but the cliffs and rocks. The Achilles' heel of MS scenery are sheer rock walls with no 3D detail and endlessly overstretched ugly textures. We see them in the Grand Canyon, in the Alps and all not had-crafted sea cliffs. And it hurt our eyes in the default Capri scenery. But now that's gone. And this is how it all could and should look! Makes me dream...

However I know, there is A LOT of work behind this one small island. However, cocky as I am I mention that just 25km off the coast in the Bristol Channel there is a beautiful island of about the same size, that even has a small airstrip on it (no need for an helipad), its name is Lundy Island. It's rocky and has lots of tall, steep cliffs... 😉

Grazie mille

I LOVE this mod. Any chance you'll make compatible with Update 9? Thanks in advance!!

Merci, Merci beaucoup.

Si world 9 a modifié l'Italie de façon réaliste notamment pour cette région Naples, Pompe... Capri ne semble pas avoir profité de la même amélioration.

En cherchant sur flightSim, j'ai trouvé votre petite merveille.

C'est un petit bijou que vous avez réalisé là.

Bravo pour votre excellent travail.

Un vrai régal de survoler cette île maintenant.

Félicitations et Merci encore de partager votre travail avec la communauté.

cordialement.

Pégase.

Fantastic and technically balanced. Thanks.

Thanks so much. Its incredible, how much details are visible! ItS now a loved destination in my Flightsim-World.

I remember, that you are working on Ischia? The new Photogrammetry of this Island is in relation to you work of Capri so poor, can you please help us, to see it in the same quality like Capri?

That would be WONDERFUL!!!!

Tried this today. Simply amazing as the whole island looks perfect. The cliffs are to be looked at. My fav island thanks to this addon. Performance not an issue on my 2080 SUPER with 1440p wide screen monitor.

Looks beautiful! Performance is the main issue, the visuals are near perfect.

One of the best places in the sim to go sailing, whether in payware or freeware boats available here on .to. Simply stunning from the water.

I'm not sure if it's from your latest update or not but I am now noticing that there are a few areas where the smoothed default terrain is sticking up past and burying the photogrammetry. There are a few little areas scattered all around the island, and a bigger area on the southeast side of the island (go to the area near the monastery courtyard and it'll be hard to miss, basically that whole hill is at least partially "submerged"). I can take some screenshots if it'd help, although all the areas are fairly easy to find just by looking for places where default trees are growing instead of photogrammetry trees.

Очень круто!!!

its a Frame Rate Killer, you must optimize

What an amazing scenery, flying low right next to the cliffs with the ancient roman statue overlooking the bay is just amazing.

thanks, I can now land on my terrace ;D

DEAR KRAMNIK, thanks + congratulations! But I am a bit confused: The Files are described as "LOD171729". And you mention, that LOD 17 is only for far a distance-view... QUESTION: Shall I only install this version 2.1?? Is it good for both viewing the island from far distance + detalled?? - Thanks for your advice! Kind rgerads, Laszlo

Capri looks gorgeous, and the fps are quite good. But it's an immersion braker if you fly over Naples, as Capri is not visible at all from the city (it's flat). Which is sad, beacuse the shape of the island is one of the most recognizable landmarks while landing in Naples, or just flying nearby.

Meglio molto meglio f/r raddoppiato!

thank you so much! Great work, I just made a little screenshotgallery, but its with version 1.0...

I had luck with the weather, but now I'am flying with the new version!

New screens added from Version 2.01, incredible nice! PLEASE MORE!!!!

Superb !

Thanks, the old Capri scenery was one of my favorites and the quality of this is SO much better (although it does still look like a flat disk from the Naples shore for me... it does look better now when it pops in though). For anyone having performance problems, it's partly because Naples is so close. I had the Sorrento photogrammetry on as well which is quite taxing and I found that turning that off boosts it to a playable fps for me (Positano and Amalfi don't have much performance impact), but if you're still having trouble consider turning off online photogrammetry to fly around without Naples in the background.

    Thx for your comments and please if you find other bugs, let me know..

  • Version 2.02 February 15, 2022

    Implemented a multipolygon terraforming system (instead of the old single one setted at level zero): so, with this new version, when photogrammetry tiles disappear from far, default scenery is NO MORE a flatten area.

    - improvements on the southwest coast and on the south climb of Monte Solaro
    - various color adjustments
    - removed 2 wrecks in the north coast

    New optimized version 2.0 with:
    - implemented LOD17 only for seeing the isle from long distance (SO NO MORE FLATTEN ISLE FROM FAR). Approaching the isle, and over it, you see only LOD20 for best viewing.
