Nellis AFB Photos


Recommended Posts

  • 1 month later...

Hey guys, I'm going to need the community's help on this one. Although many great pictures has already been posted above, there's only so much pictures you can find on the internet. I'm afraid we need some more from ground-level in order to texture the structures properly. Is anyone located on sight in Nellis or somewhere in the Nevada area that could get some high resolution photos of each building adjacent to the tarmac? We would really appreciate it!

I know it's not much, but google has street level mapped all the surrounding built up area on it's mapping system.

 

Google Nellis

 

You can walk all along the roads and although low-res, can see quite a bit. I also have friends who work there, if you need a rough height of hangars?

 

Also, Panoramia has a bunch og photos, indexed from all over the web, by location:

Hey Hoot74 if your going to take pictures please take them head on in other words you want to be facing the side of the building squarely with your camera level . By minimizing any distortion the pic will probably make it in to the mod thanks

CNCs and Laser engravers are great but they can't do squat with out a precise set of plans.

Hope these might be of use. I can furnish RAW files if needed.

Reading some of the earlier posts I see you need pics of the sun shaders. I have a few more I'll post later tonight. Particular image size you want? I can also furnish the original Canon RAW files if nesc.

Hi Kung Fu!

 

I'm a Staff Sergeant stationed at Nellis. I work on the flightline as a 2W1 weapons troop, and I've been working several flightlines for 8 years on both the F-16 and F-15E aircraft. I currently load and maintain weapon systems for the F15E Strike Eagle. I am on the flight line everyday and could very much help with the layout of the flight line and common things you would see there to include common support vehicles that are never included into flight sims.

 

Which buildings do you need information on? Perhaps a more detailed layout with building numbers would help as a reference. Let me know. Certain pictures from certain angles or locations will need special permission. I can facilitate this, and that's why I need to know building numbers and angles. If you don't have such a diagram with building numers let me know.

 

It is also possible for you to be escorted around areas of the flightline if you'd like for some of your programmers to see for themselves what it looks like during daily operations.

 

By the way...you have created the best helicopter/combat flight sim I've ever seen or played (Been playing flight sims since my 486 computer). You're attention to detail and quality of programming has raised the bar of excellence. Your willingness to go beyond an already fantastic project makes me eager to help you out.

Scrape, If you don;t have a camera to take good shots I can help. I live in Vegas. I heard of the photo restrictions on base as well so not sure if I could do it if you got me on anyway.

 

Wags has anyone contacted the Nellis Public Affairs officer about any of this? They may be willing to help out.

Hi h00t74 and thanks for the help.

 

A photo request was made earlier through the PAO office but he was stiff-armed. I'll try my luck this week.

 

Thanks
