I tried my hand at geoconversion two years ago, had some success, but eventually gave up. I also tried flying the airliners at high altitude over geoconverted scenery, and gave up on that too. Why? Same reason. Well, it seems that nothing has changed, so I wonder what we are missing.
Here's the issue.
Take an airliner up to high altitude in default scenery, and you can see nice scenery of consistent resolution out to the horizon. However, take an airliner to the same altitude over geoconverted scenery, and you only see the new geoconverted stuff so far into the distance. After that the low resolution IPACS worldwide stuff always shows through. So here's my question. Is there a setting level that IPACS have not explained to home-made scenery creators? Should they be accessing another level and geoconverting a larger area at a lower res, just to produce a "carpet" that shows through instead of the IPACS global images?
I open this up for discussion between IPACS and those who are currently creating their own scenery. No point in me getting into that discussion as it is too long since I tried my hand at it. But I do know this, this still prevents me from flying high in even the most recently created photosceneries. Maybe IPACS and Nickhod and others can find a solution that makes all the difference in the future.
Whatever the answer, there must be one, or we'd not see such a difference between homemade scenery and IPACS default. See image below to help explain.
