Align Overlay with elevation map?

Postby james474789 » Thu Dec 07, 2017 7:12 am

I have followed some of the excellent tutorials on this forum and perfect parallel to start working in Course Forge. My aim is to create simulator versions of courses I play frequently.

I have managed to get hold of lidar data for one of these courses (Falkirk UK), and using VT Builder I can get the terrain into Unity. I needed to use sas.planet to get aerial imagery and they appear to align in VT Builder. However, when I import the files into unity they are clearly off.

Files are here:

I am not sure how this is happening when it looks good inside VT Builder?

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

I have no idea how to fix your problem with the overlay beings I don't use VT builder. But I did the course using global mapper and here is the unity package with the Bing overlay and CF already installed. Just download double-click on the unity packet once it loads just double click on the unity scene in projects. If for some reason you still don't see the terrain. Just double-click on terrain in the hierarchy, and it should center itself in the scene window

The elevation throughout the course looks great. By the looks of it, the bunkers must be fairly shallow on that course. Some seem to stick out better than others.

Thanks for doing that, it is SO much better than my attempt. The terrain looks great. I will now see if I can map some of the holes out and get them into the game.


Much appreciated...

You're welcome, I see there's a few more courses in that area that the lidar covers. One is Falkirk Tryst Golf Club,the other two are Bonnybridge Golf Club and Glenbervie Golf Course. If you're interested in any of them just let me know.
