AeroScenery Beta Releases

  • What I would recommend is:


    (...)

    Additional recommendation:


    - first Geoconvert in Level 9 only (or Levels 9 & 11 if you want - this should be a rather fast process) to check everything runs smooth.


    Launch higher levels afterwards, as a separate batch.


    To do this, you just edit the TMC file with Notepad (or better, Notepad++) and comment (add initial // to the lines) blocks for levels you want to ignore.


    Since there's little hope the Geoconvert tool will soon (ever?) be fixed, an idea would be Aeroscenery to automatically generate separate, Levels-groups-specific TMC's for manually launching Geoconvert => 1 TMC for Levels 9 & 11, and another for higher selected Levels...


    Cheers

  • Thank you very much for your work Nickhod.

    I have just created my first tils above the Roclincourt aerodrome near Arras in France.

    I will continue but I think to change my computer because my Intel I core 7 with 8GB of memory is a little fair.
    5 hours for one tils size 14, 1.94 m / pixel

  • Nick,


    GeoConvert wrapper isn’t working. I do have Use GeoConvert Wrapper on in the settings. When the first grid is done. The green “GeoConvert has finished press esc.” comes up but, doesn’t go on to the second grid. Pressing esc. it will continue with the next grid.

    I'll check to see if a new SDK release has broken this functionality.


    What I would recommend though is to try it when you're not using other apps on your computer. Unfortunately GeoConvert is buggy and seems to have several problems with restarting or hanging when other apps are being used.


    If that's not the issue, you can always disable GeoConvert Wrapper in the AeroScenery settings.

  • I recall IPACS once stated they would try to correct the GeoConvert closing issues when calling it from AeroScenery? So perhaps they did with the latest version and there is no longer a need for GeoConvert Wrapper? Just an idea... who knows?


    Kind regards, Michael

  • It seems that Geoconverter has not been touched in the recent SDK aerofly_fs_2_sdk_tools_20191223.

    The geoconverter,exe changing date is 25.06.201 12:05.

    I checked it with AeroScenery v1.1.1 with activated Geoconvert Wrapper, and it still works fine.


    However I would prefer, if admin could include a changelog for this latest SDK. Indeed he said to support freeware developers more.


    We hope to support all those freeware developers more, with upcoming updates.

    The only thing running is AeroScenery. I disabled GeoConvert Wrapper and do fewer grid tiles at the same time. It works for what I have left to do.

    Hello,


    First thank a lot or this great work :)


    I can confirm this :


    If launching AeroScenery alone, it does not stop until all tiles are done


    If I am using other apps in the while (coud even be only my browser), I have to press "escape" after each tile...

  • Thanks for making this available, Nick.


    Has anyone experience with this? Is "Here WeGo" (which is the former Nokia Maps as I understand it) better w.r.t. clouds (or rather lack of) and color consistency than Bing or Google?


    What do we know about licensing/redistribution terms?


    Thanks and kind regards, Michael

  • Quick answer from myself: Just looked up the Hokkaido, JP, area, which I once was experimenting with for AeroflyFS2, in the browser and it seems to be quite cloudy.:( Colors seem to be rather consistent, though.

    It seems to use similar image sources to Bing, but not always identical.


    Licensing is proprietary as far as I know.

  • Ah, thanks.

  • Version 1.1.3 of AeroScenery is now available


    https://github.com/nickhod/aer…y/releases/tag/1.1.3-beta

    https://github.com/nickhod/aer…eroscenery-1.1.3-beta.zip


    In this version;

    • Temporary fix for HereWeGo maps version change
    • USGS source working again
    • Added GuleSider Orthophoto Source
    • Add option to disable confirmation message when running multiple GeoConvert concurrently
  • Hi Nick,

    thank you very much for correcting the USGS routines.


    A fast test seems to work fine.

    However I can see some black squares. Do you still try to fetch them a second time, if you receive a black one?

    Is there a log, where one could see, that they were not transfered?
