Scenery of Rotterdam

The release of my
 biggest city-project to date: A nice high quality rendition of the city of Rotterdam. A very large area to explore: From Central Station in the north to Zuidplein in the south of Rotterdam, including all famous buildings! Color corrected and extremely well blended in the surrounding default scenery. including real/default water for maximum realism. Made hundreds of manual adjustments. Night lighting for unique 3D buildings will follow in a upcoming update. I tried to find a good balance in performance vs visuals so that's why the focus is on the inner part of the city. Happy VFR flying!

Known issues:
- Due to the size of the city there could be a performance impact on low-end PC's.

Credits
This scenery has been extracted from Google Maps, hence all 3D credits goes to Google.
This scenery has been generated with the help of the Google Earth Decoder tool.

Update 1.2
- Fixed flashing 'Rhijnspoorkade/Maasboulevard'
- Fixed a mesh-water error in front of the (old) Unilever building.
- Fixed some strange looking quays- Improved the 'Nieuwe Maas' river.

Update 1.5
This update is mainly focused on the optimization of the scenery, a number of bug fixes and the first night lighting parts. The number of texture files has been reduced significantly. From over 15.000 texture files to just 4.500 merged and optimized files! Resulting in less CPU load and shorter loading times.

Update 2.0
- Now supports World Update 4.
- Removed the double Erasmusbridge from the scenery.
- Merged the new MSFS Erasmusbridge (POI) with the Rotterdam scenery.
- Repaired some roofs.
- Fixed some small bugs.


Installation
1. Remove existing Rotterdam inner-city/object addons or older versions of this scenery.
2. Drag and drop the folder 'rotterdam' to your MSFS Community folder.

Thanks so much for this beautiful scenery!

2 remarks tho: the iconic bridge De Hef is still packed, and i have a dramatic loss in framerate (below 10 over city centre).

Maybe de Hef will be show in full glory after a future update, the framerate is more problematic (and no low-end PC here, btw 😊

Very good scenery and enjoyed it a lot. I would give it 5 stars but since SU9 this scenery kinda stopped working for me tho, very bad performance around EHRD and enormous stutters when looking around caused by this scenery.

Hi Matt.

I installed the latest version of your Rotterdam scenery. Absolutely great work. Fantastic that you have taken the trouble to make this. I had a double Erasmusbridge 😉 and that is solved now. But unfortunatly the top of the Willembridge is gone now. Any ideas what might cause this? I am up to date on MFS 2020. (31 october 2021)

Wow, this is my favorite city on the planet. Mainly because it's where I was born and lived for my 1st 8 years. Now 44 yrs in the USA. Can't wait to download and tour the city!

Hallo, you delivered some nice work. However the Erasmusbrug is not showing in my scenery. I have World Update 6 installed. Could that be the problem?

Hello Matt, for the first time I downloaded a mod. Being an original Overschieernaar of course I was glad to see your mod about Rotterdam. It looks very good. However the Erasmusbridge is missing in my download. I see trafic moving in the water, but not the bridge. I also did not see the bridge with the recent FS2020 update. I understood that it was supposed to be there as a POI. Any suggestions to correct? Regards Bouw
Thanks a lot Matt. This is my favourite one!
😃Same problem with Erasmusbridge. Maybe you will help us out. If so, the scenery is even better than before.😃
I have the same issue that Tom1957 has...
Love your scenery so much ❤, i don't want to lose it!
But i don't need two bridges 😀...
Please try to fix it, holy Magician 😉!
With World Update IV (april 14, 2021) Asobo has added not only Rotterdam Airport, but also the Erasmusbrug. As citizen of Rotterdam, I had downloaded and installed your mod, which I like very much. And so, now I have an double Erasmusbrug. Is it possible to have your mod without the Erasmusbrug? Or an removable one?
clearly mentioned in the weak SDK manual.
Please be sure to change modellib.bgl to something unique for each file, like ZONABS-Modellib.bgl. See, please
https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/scenery-creators-please-move-or-rename-your-modellib-bgl/307563
you will get CTD issues with modelLib.bg
Looks superb. But i also have a huge burch califa looking obelisk in the scenery now, and some more scenery killers. Hope you can fix it.
Killed my performance.
Downloaded your great scenery! Txs a lot. But all of a sudden I have this HUGE shiny Obelisk in EHRD neighbourhood south west. Has this something to do with your file?
Super tof! Heel erg bedankt voor het maken!
A good scenary add-ons for a beautiful city. I had made a music showcase video on this scenary to show the details of this scenary.
