Adding a DEM(digital elevation model) question

Hi:

 

I would like to know if there is a way to add a DEM to DCS for making my own scenario, in case that they are none please DCS guys consider adding this feature, cause just to put an example the new coming modules like DCS Mig-21 or DCS Mi-8MTV2 they both are in many parts of the world and I'm sure that many peoples would like to play in their own country with all the airbases and stuff.

 

There are much to tell about this feature, and I'm sure that other guys have the same request at lease my budies all want play in others places in the world like Afganistan, Libia, Iraq.

I would love to see a DEM or SRTM mesh of the world, even a low level LOD version would be great. Unfortunately the tools just aren't available to do it at the moment but hopefully that will change in the future.

 

You could import DEM data into 3dsMax and export it as scenery, however a small CMD program would be cool. Although if ED wanted they have rather good product opportunity there for another module.:D DCS DEM

Yea me too. I hoping to make some scenario for the DCS Mig-21BIS like Cuba, for everyone.

Care to explain how to do that.

 

Thanks in advance.

It's far from easy to achieve and is something that requires new tools from ED to accomplish. First you need a plugin to import the data into 3dsmax with the appropriate filters to fill in the voids and spikes in the terrain data. That's not so hard to find but then you need an export plugin from ED for the conversion into the new DCS terrain format and last of all the necessary tools to extent the boundaries of the sim.

 

Without the appropriate tools to extent the boundaries and convert the format you would be limited to creating small islands in the Black Sea you could create like any other ground object but model it from DEM data and map it with terrain textures. Personally I'd like to see ED do it as add-on, now that would be cool. :thumbup:

I find the pluging for import my DEM to 3dmax, also I fixed all the seams, spikes, voids, hell I even have all airbases in 3d. But now how do I export to DCS terrain format.
