About this file


Scenery of Rotterdam (
inner city and work in progress)
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:
- Night lighting and further optimizations will follow in an upcoming update (work in progress).
- Colors are corrected as far as possible but some textures can still be a bit off.
- 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.

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 Matt, this is my favorite city. The building (flat) near Tropicana has no roof. Can you call the roofer to fix this? I will pay the bill.

    Absolutely wonderful job! Just took a flight over Rotterdam and it look fantastic. Too bad you didn't do the area of Rdam where I live, Nesselande (tegen Gouda). Can you add that in the next release?

    Ah Nesselande, I went there a lot this summer to eat icecream and watch the sunset with my baby daughter. If only I could afford those beautiful houses on the beachfront...I guess Ommoord will do for now:). Any streets or areas you want in particular? I can manually import them, just let me know. The whole area will take a bit longer though.

    The past week The Netherlands is become more and more realsitic. With Rotterdam as THE HIGHLIGHT of MSFS2020. Thanks Matt! Really great. To save loading times I put this larger files only in the Community folder when I am using them. In this way I always start with cherry picking before loading the game. Without any obligations for you: Pijnacker and Schiedam city center?
