Great videos! Now I'm really looking forward to your first scenery (not only to drive/fly/sail it, but to tear it apart and see how it ticks!
You mentioned that you had some missing gaps for a railroad KML file. I'll have to dig up the link when I'm back home (I'm working right now
, but I had a site that had great geo files for utilities (such as railroads) for a number of countries. I was able to get all the rail lines imported for southern Bavaria/Austria (too bad there aren't tunnels in VSF as some tracks end up going up-and-over hills and mountains). If you wish, I can dig up the site, and if its different data set then what you were working with, I'd be happy to develop the kml file for you. Also, if there's further assistance you need, I'd be willing to help (time allowed of course!).
You also mentioned about the issue of robots following roads. I asked Ilan if he would add a command to the robo script to allow robot movement to geo coordinates (instead of basing it off of point of origin). My idea was that lat/lon could be entered for robots using the same abs geo coords as the roads in VSF as a starting point. Better accuracy might be with a calculated offset lat/lon value for the robot to stay in a designated lane, and then sending the robot off matching the same radian (heading) as the road is facing. I was also thinking of logging lat/lon by moving to each road end (for major roads) for mapping coords. In the end, I'm not completely sure how well this would work. Thoughts?
