Thread: A Stearman Haven

  1. #1

    A Stearman Haven

    Corsicana Field, home of the 31st Training Wing/301st Flying Training Detachment. Opened in April of 1941. Began training United States Army Air Corps flying cadets under contract to Air Activities of Texas. Flying training was performed with Fairchild PT-19s as the primary trainer. Also had several PT-17 Stearmans and a few old A-3 Curtiss Falcons assigned.

    This is not what the base looked like, although the location is correct (SE of Corsicana, Tx.) It's just something to play with for some of my classics. A WIP right now, much to still work out.

    Close, but no cigar!! I forgot to copy the textures over to the airports texture folder for one. . .if you rotate the ground poly 180 degrees, it's perfect albeit on the wrong side of the airport, lol

    Not sure how that happened. . .this is my first attempt at a ground poly.

    Looking good, Ed. It kind of reminds me of an airfield closer to your home. Harte Field (now Hartlee Field) was used as a training field for liaison pilots from what I've read.

    Final shots! Bill (WND) is beta testing and I have a few small additions I want to make prior to uploading, so I think by Saturday morning it should be available. Testing has been in FSX/Accel and P3D_V4.3

    That looks really good. Are the static a/c included?

    You're really good at color correcting and blending ground images Ed. This looks really nice!

    Ground Poly looking nice too. Is it a custom texture?

    Yes they are and removable if necessary via a single bgl.

    Actually I gave up on the ground poly as I could never get it to work. What you see (the main ramp) is just generated through ADE.

    Brilliant! So we can adapt the field according to the airplanes we put on it.

    I think he means there's a bgl for the aircraft which we can either use or not, rather than that we can add our own selection.
