    Posted: January-16-2013 at 9:57am
 
 
 
 
 
Mr. HARUO's FREEWARE JAPAN LANDCLASS:
 
HOW TO INSTALL WITH GEX ASIA and SOUTH AMERICA
 
 
 
 
 
NOTE: A UPDATE FOR GEX ASIA SOUTH AMERICA WAS OUTLINED AT THE END OF THIS POST. YOU MUST INSTALL THIS LANDCLASS AS OUTLINED BELOW FIRST, THEN APPLY THE UPDATE IF YOU ARE USING GEX ASIA SOUTH AMERICA v1.20 OR ABOVE.
 
THIS WILL ALSO WORK WITH PREPAR3D AND ALL VERSIONS OF GEP3D
 
 
 
I rarely link products in this forum unless I find them to be outstanding and the devloper congratulated on a job well done.
 
Paul Wheelers freeware tropical island packages are on that list!..  however I would like to direct your attention to another awesome freeware package.
 
As many of you who fly in Asia most likely already know the landclass there is very poor and Aces made a lot of mistakes in file calls for the region. Even the 3rd party landclass products, although help, do not bring Japan 'ALIVE' like this freeware. I came across this little GEM and want to bring it to everyones attention!
 
It is a freeware landclass for the entire country of Japan which includes ROAD data as well as corrected shorelines, etc. It is very much like a mini "UTX Japan" I have tested this freeware landclass extensively with GEX ASA and with the exception of a few 'minor' issues, it is the BEST render of Japan in FSX I have ever seen.
 
 
This is freeware and credit for the person who developed it is Mr. Haruo
 
His blog, Haru?JETMAX Home Cockpit which is in Japanese is located here: http://ameblo.jp/haruo1978/  
 
And the freeware for Japan (and other spot Asia locations) in FSX is located here: http://nazo.secret.jp/fsx/index.html
 
 
NOTE; RECENTLY THE FILES BECAME UNAVAILABLE AND THE WEB PAGE LINKS POSTED ABOVE ARE NOW DEAD. IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN THE CREDIT FOR THE SOURCE I AM LEAVING THE INFORMATION ABOVE HOWEVER I AM PROVIDING A DIRECT LINK TO THE FILES BELOW. PLEASE USE THE LINK BELOW TO OBTAIN THE FILE jpx_beta070.zip
 
You can use Google Translate for those pages if you wish however I am going to show you exactly how to use this freeware with GEX Asia and South America so the entire country of Japan is transformed in FSX!
 
BE AWARE: The other locations noted on his web page such as China, Korea, the Russian border areas, Hong Kong and Taiwan are NOT complete ground landclass like Japan. They are small spot locations and cities that have road data and shoreline issues corrected. For those locations he offers packages outside of Japan it still requires 3rd party landclass support such as SceneryTech Asia or Xclass Asia. However Japan requires NO 3rd party landclass as it is COMPLETE. I will show you how to use the Japan LC with GEX ASA.
 
 
 
 
INSTRUCTIONS:
 
This is very simple!
 
 
1. Download the Japan landclass to your desktop and unzip it.
 
 
 
2. Open the unzipped jpx_beta070 directory. Inside you will find: Haruo Japan Landclass  I have named this directory for 2 reasons:
 
a) To honor the man who developed this landclass
 
b) So it is easy to locate it in the FSX scenery library to activate it once it is installed.
 
 
3. Open the renamed Haruo Japan Landclass directory...  inside you will find the following:
 
jpx_base
jpx_extended
jpx_object
BLDV3.dds
readme.txt
 
The readme is written in Japanese so I have translated the instructions and will provide you with the exact outline to set it up for GEX Asia and South America ..
 
Do not be concerned with any of the files you may find in these directories as I have already made the modifications required and added a few of my own...
 
NOTE THAT: The following instructions are for users running GEX Asia and South America! We must add a few specific, modified and renumbered GEX ASA files to Mr. Haruos landclass first or GEX ASA will not appear correctly with this landclass in cities. If you use Orbx products make sure the FTX Central switch is set to FSX DEFAULT for all Orbx regions before performing the next steps just to be safe!
 
 
4. Copy the file: BLDV3.dds into your <FSX Install>\Texture directory - GEX will not overwrite this file
 
 
Note: The following file was UPDATED for full support of Mt Fujiyama with GEX ASA on 1/6/13 at 3:35pm EST. DO NOT USE THIS FILE unless you have GEX Asia/South America OR Ground Environment Prepar3D installed as these files are not designed for FSX default or other texture packages. As long as you have GEX ASA/GEP3D installed, or, GEX ASA with other GEX regions, you can use this file:
 
5. Download the following zip file: http://gex.flight1.net/forumimages/GEX_jpx_support.zip .. and unzip it
 
Inside you will find a directory named: jpx_extended and jpx_base which contains the modified custom GEX ASA data. Drop these 2 folders into the: Haruo Japan Landclass directory and allow them to overwrite.
 
 
6. Copy the entire Haruo Japan Landclass directory into your: <FSX Install>\Addon Scenery folder
 
 
7. Launch FSX. Click SETTINGS in the FSX control window. Go to the the FSX Scenery Library and click ADD AREA. Browse to and open the Addon Scenery\Haruo Japan Landclass directory.
 
Select to add the scenery folders in this order one at a time:
 
jpx_base
jpx_extended
jpx_object
 
Browse and open the first directory, click OK, then place the mouse pointer anywhere in the white box and click once, this is a Windows 7 bug and the FSX scenery library will accept your selection. Repeat until all 3 directories appear in your scenery library list.
 
They should appear in your scenery library as shown if you have done this operation correctly:
 
 
 
If you made a mistake, simply click MOVE UP/DOWN and order the folders exactly as shown above
 
 
8. IF YOU USE any 3rd party landclass such as SceneryTech or Xclass Asia, BE SURE it is located anywhere BELOW the 3 entries shown above. You can enable them and they can be layered anywhere, just make sure they are UNDER the entries as displayed.
 
IF you use any addon airports in Japan, be sure they are listed ABOVE the 3 entries shown
 
 
9. Click OK and let the scenery database rebuild
 
10: Launch your Japan flight.
 
 
ONE LAST NOTE: Tokyo in default FSX has always been hard on frames due to the airport and the complex FSX custom city models used there. This landclass will increase the system load in the city of Tokyo since it will call many high-count autogen tiles. Users on slower systems may need to trim the autogen slider in Tokyo somewhat. I found no other location in Japan that imposed any load issues.
 
 
 
ENJOY this wonderful landclass for Japan with GEX Asia and South America
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Mr Haruo, Thank you for your work! It is quite stunning and everyone should know about your talent and this generous freeware offer to the Flightsim community. 
 
 
 
=====================================
 
 
UPDATE: IF YOU HAVE UPDATED TO GEX ASIA/SOUTH AMERICA v1.20 (or higher) THROUGH THE INTERFACE OR YOU ARE USING GEP3D (ANY VERSION) PLEASE APPLY THIS PATCH TO UPDATE THE JAPAN LANDCLASS CALLS.
 
YOU MUST HAVE PREVIOUSLY INSTALLED THE FILES OUTLINED ABOVE FIRST CORRECTLY AND AS INSTRUCTED BEFORE INSTALLING THIS PATCH
 
 
INSTRUCTIONS:
 
1. DOWNLOAD THE PATCH FROM THIS LINK   http://gex.flight1.net/forumimages/Japan_landclass_na21.zip  AND UNZIP. OPEN THE UNZIPPED FOLDER
 
2. COPY THE FOLDER: jpx_extend AND DROP IT INTO YOUR <FLIGHTSIM>ADDON SCENERY DIRECTORY   ALLOW IT TO OVERWRITE WITH ALL FILES
 
That's it, the update is complete
 
If you followed the directions above to install the landclass as I outlined the folder drop will overwrite the necessary files. If you did not follow those directions and installed the landclass somewhere else you will need to browse to that location and overwrite the folder; jpx_extended with the one provided by this patch.

You can not use the GEX altered additional files or it will screw up your render with mismatched files.
 
You can use the LC itself but do not add the GEX files unless you use GEX Asia/South America
 
You will not get the same results or look like the image I posted without GEX ASA and many of the cities as well as other features will not appear the same. The additional GEX files are specifically modified to work with the landclass and GEX ASA
 
 
I just updated the GEX ASA addition to add full seasonal support for Mt Fujiyama in his LC with GEX ASA
 
 
I came back over a week ago but was not on the north shore.. I spent the time on 2 other islands

Hi Nick (or someone who knows),

Where can I find the packages made by Paul Wheelers:

"Paul Wheelers freeware tropical island packages"

As mentioned above?

Thanks

Never mind,  I found it through Google.

Thanks

Hi Nick!
 
I followed your instructions exactly, but when trying to add the three files:
jpx_base
jpx_extended
jpx_object
to the Scenic library, I get  a blank line entry for each one, in priority slots 1,2, and 3.
 
It seems they have been added, but no name appears in the list after adding.
 
Any suggestions?

If they were added they would show up in the scenery library list at the top
 
are you sure you are not dealing with the FSX/Windows7 scenery library bug?  You have to use a workaround with Windows 7 to manually add scenery to the library
 
When you select the folder then put the mouse in the white box area and click it.. it will accept the scenery selection.

It's probably the Win7 bug.  I just tried to add them again, but it says each one already exists, although as I said, there is no "name" in the 3 library listings, just three enabled no name slots 1-3.
 
I checked flying out of Narita RJAA and headed SW towards Tokyo.  I see blue roofs, square symetrical odffices/apts with many regular rows of windows and a huge round stadium.
 
Does that sound right?

That's strange!   No name?   I have never heard of that!
 
 
You are saying you see 3 blank lines at the top of the scenery library?
 
They must be in the correct order in the list
 
Are you sure you followed the directions and compiled the folders as I outlined?
 
 
 
I honestly cant tell you what is right from a typed description of the area

Try deleting each blank line in the scenery library, then browse and add them again.. When you select the first directory with the mouse, then put the mouse pointer in the white box area next to where it shows the folder and click once, that should close the box and accept the scenery folder. Then repeat for the others
 
You should see the NAME of the directory at the top of the list, then repeat for the other two and make sure they are listed in the correct order as I show above

By the white box, do you mean the one labeled "scenery area title" or the one labeled "directory"?
 
Anyway, I tried it both ways and still get the same results.  Perhaps when I place d the tow GEX mod jpx files into the Haruo folder, I did not get a proper overwrite.  I will try again from the beginning.

This is the outline to add Scenery in Windows 7..
 
Click ADD AREA in the Scenery Library and then browse to the location of the named scenery folder..   click it once to select...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
And yes, I would start over and make sure your directory structures are right.. something isn't right and I suspect something is missing

Hooray for Nick!  That did the trick; I did not realize you meant the main white box where the scenery file was listed.  It worked great and it's all fine now..
 
Thanks for being patient with me on this; I guess I need my head examined. Smile
 
Later, I will install the PW Sceneries for the Caribbean.  In the replacement beach texture section, it mentions correcting the FSX terrain.cfg, but doesn't give any details.  Is this important?

Glad we got it sorted
 
You DONT need Paul's beach textures if you have the GEX Atlantic/Pacific Tropics installed.. it will overwrite the GEX version. GEX APT will be used by Paul's scenery down there

I would very much like to try out this Japan Landclass you describe but the link is unfortunately no longer working. Can you possibly share a copy of it with me or help me find where it may be located on his site? i am looking now but not having much luck yet. I have collected a lot of FSX resources on Japan and would love to try this set as you highly reccomend it. thanks for any help on this.

Ditto:

"I would very much like to try out this Japan Landclass you describe but the link you posted above is unfortunately no longer working."


If still available.. I have a question: Is this much better than the SceneryTech Asia. Can it be used with SceneryTech Asia?

Thanks Infall, let's hope we can hear back from Nick. I also found some very good Japan Mesh sets here:

http://www.flightinfo.jp/jtms/

in case you didnt know about them and some excellent cities and other add ons here:

http://www.freewarescenery.com/fsx/japan.html

these all work as i dl them again tho i had some already just to be safe and have a backup.

Work is continuing in Japan but i see some o the sites are now gone so maybe things are fading a bit in favour of that new variation of FSX.

Let me check the GEX files..   the landclass part will, no question.. its just landclass but the GEX files in the zip I posted may need to be updated, I cant remember since its been a while.
 
I will check and post back in a few minutes. In the mean time the landclass part can be installed as it will work fine regardless

The directions are clear. I don't know what the issue is or how to assist.
 
If you did exactly as outlined the changes should be obvious
 
 
All I can suggest is start over and try again from the beginning

I just ran across this and installed it.  The level of quality of this is top rate, amazing that it is freeware (though one has to pay for admission with GEX ASA).  Tokyo at dense autogen tanks my performance, as mentioned, but does look stunning, as do all of the other areas I've visited in FSX (which don't tank FPS at all).  All I can say is thanks for advertising this and providing for free such a brilliant work.  Mr. Haruo, much thanks! Clap Obviously a labor of love.

It's amazing what quality landclass can do for FSX; IMO this easily outshines UTX.

GEX/GEP3D is not required to use the freeware LC.
If you use the GEX/GEP3D products then the patch I posted is required in order to upgrade the experience and match tiles but anyone can use the LC without GEX/GEP3D. The patch cant be used, that's all. 
 
Yes, it is one of the best LC's I have seen for a specific area.

Well. GEX ASA with the patch and this Japan LC is nice. Great bonus for us with GEX ASA.
Some addons like to edit FSX Autogen files. For the best experience with lots of Autogen and trees, disable Forest Performance Fix and use the original Autogen files dated 2006/2007.
Tokyo is hard on FPS. Lower the settings.
Thank you.
 
Edit after a reply from NickN:
When I said FSX Autogen files, I mean those in the FSX\Autogen directory.
Addons like FT Grenadines/29Palms Skiathos/Orbx FTX like to edit these.
