AeroScenery Beta Releases

  • I think it may just be you and yours. :) My thoughts were, wow, it couldn't get much easier than this. I downloaded the zip file, unzipped it, looked for the exe file and clicked on it. I was up and running in less than a minute.


    So yea. 8o

  • The problem is already discovered: deleted the folder "17-geoconvert.ttc", the problem was gone.

    Hi Delfin,


    If you're still struggling with this I'd recommend you take a quick look through the IPACS wiki to familiarise yourself with the concepts underlying scenery creation.


    Then, take a look through the excellent guide to AeroScenery written by crispy136


    https://flight-sim.org/filebas…ry/106-aeroscenery-guide/


    Although I've tried to make the app as simple as possible, AeroScenery documentation is almost none existent from my side, which I hope to address soon.

  • Switzerland appears to be working like charm !


    I am almost complete in ZL17.

  • New Beta Release v1.1.1

    This (possibly) fixes the issue with missing USGS tiles.


    Any easy way to confirm is to open the tile download directory, sort by size and show previews in Windows explorer.

    Any small tiles and don't have a preview are bad.

    Unfortunately tile errors seem to happen all the time with USGS, so the retries we now have to do make the download even slower

  • New Beta Release v1.1.1

    This (possibly) fixes the issue with missing USGS tiles.

    Did three tests of Grid Size Level 10 on USGS and can confirm that the missing tiles glitch is now fixed. Thank you very much Nick! However Zoom Level 16 is not a good friend of mine ;)

  • However Zoom Level 16 is not a good friend of mine ;)

    It's not a good friend of mine either. ;)


    Kind of ironic that USGS is one of the few "free" providers of high res imagery, yet the most locked down in terms of automated download.

    I will email them to confirm that there's no automated way of getting high res tiles.

  • I just got an exception as follows:

    This is downloading ArcGis Zoom 17, all actions selected except Geoconvert. AeroScenery is stuck with all progress bars at 100%. Version is still 1.1.0.


    Kind regards, Michael

  • Hi Nick,


    One other thing I noted is that the airports don't reliably display. The log shows the error:-

    2019-08-07 14:42:37 (INFO) AeroScenery v1.1.1 Started

    Thanks, Chris

  • Thanks Chris,


    The next beta release will focus on fixing some bugs, like this one, and adding some other requested features like multi-tile install.

  • Have updated my user information guide for AeroScenery version 1.1.0 and above to include new features. This mainly for use by those new to AeroScenery.

    https://flight-sim.org/filebas…-version-1-1-0-and-above/

    That's a great document for anyone to work seriously with AeroScenery.


    Kind regards, Michael

  • It took me today 4 hours for downloading 1 Bing Grid (size 9), ZL 17, AFS-Level 9, 11, 12, 13 ,14. ?( Some time ago I needed only approx. 30 minutes. What is your experience?

    This is about right from my past experiences. But for me it's usually 3 to 3.5 hours.

    30 mins for Grid 9, ZL 17, AFS-Level 9,11,12,13,14 just doesn't sound possible.

    I avoid AFS Level 14 with only Zoom level 17. I don't find much of a difference from 13. ( I'm sure there is, but it takes more time and storage) To each his own.
