Frankfurt Landmarks


Recommended Posts

The landmarks are well done. 
But some buildings are way too big in proportion.E.g. "DEKA Bank" Frankfurt-Niederrad, the opposite "Lyoner Stern" is normally as high. 

The Frankfurt "Eintracht Stadion" is no longer called "Commerzbank Arena" but "Deutsche Bank Park".

Regarding Niederrad, there's an ICE (Highspeedtrain) on the wrong bridge towards Frankfurt Main Station. There are two bridges, one for the commuter trains only to the west and just beside the second older bridge where all other trains drive over. Is it possible to move the train to the correct place?

Hi all,

 

thanks for the feedback.

 

Out of our budget of about 110 custom buildings we managed to replace seven in Niederrad (see screenshot below), the others remain the default 'autogen'. Our buildings are scaled with official data like Emporis, eg Deka Bank is 45m tall. Unfortunately, the SDK doesn't allow us to alter default autogen at the moment so all other buildings are unchanged.

 

We're aware of the change of main sponsor for the Waldstadion. It's not an easy fix though as the sign is 3D geometry not just a texture.

 

Good tip with the ICE being on the wrong bridge; fortunately that's an easy adjustment.

 

Let us know if you spot other issues, please. I grew up near Frankfurt but it's been ages since I've been there last.

 

Cheers, Holger

Don´t worry Holger, these sponsors change so fast, nearly as fast as the skyscrapers grow in Shanghai.

Hi Holger,

the actual height of the DEKA named (PRISMA) is 45m, but most of the other buildings around are in reality also between 38m and partly 50m. That's why the whole thing doesn't look good, especially if in reality you have your workplace opposite.

Hi pezi,

 

as I mentioned, at the moment we don't have the ability in MSFS to alter default buildings, like changing height or appearance. In MSFS the only option is to exclude and replace them with custom models, until Asobo/MS expand the SDK accordingly. All those buildings in Niederrad that are currently too low are default 'autogen' office buildings.

 

As with any product, there's a limited budget, hence we had to pick some of the more obvious buildings in Niederrad, which are the seven marked on the Google Earth screenshot.

 

I assume there will be a World Update for Germany at some point, or at least an update of the generic buildings database with the correct number of floors. Also, should Landmarks Frankfurt sell really well, we may have the budget for a v2, like we're currently working on for London.

 

Sorry that your workplace didn't make the cut. Hopefully, the other parts of the city improve sufficiently on the default city.

 

Cheers, Holger
