What am I doing wrong with geo convert tool

  • Hi Dree,


    Have besn playing with geoconvert and did not complete a succesfull scenery that I kept. Jusf practise. But, I will try Texel scenery today!

    Problem is that FSET takes about 10 hours or more to do a 25×25 nm in resolution 0 or -1. I tried geoconvert but it crashed due to memory issues and I deletet the bmp files immediately......not so smart because I could have done the scenery in smaller parts I understand now. Zeeland seems cool also! I use aerofly in VR so I need high resolution scenery so I think I'll make -1 res scenery. These are huge files but geoconvert compresses it pretty well. Let me start up my pc now and I will let you know how it goes.

    Cheers

  • We each try the scenery generation with different ideas in mind. I find it simpler and faster to make large areas with 4 m per pixel resolution( which is OK at 2000 feet AGL or above ) and then make 2 nautical mile square or so high resolution areas around cities or airports. I did the entire state of Washington which is 200 nautical miles by 300 nautical miles that way . So FSET level three or four for lower resolution, TMC level 11 or 12, then FSET level 0 or -1 with TMC level 13. Actual airports are done as a 3D model with AC3D with a -1 FSET image as the base. The runway is a separate object as well as buildings and static airplanes and maybe trees

    How are you combining tilesets made in different runs of geoconvert? I always get a stupid low resolution border between tiles created in a different geo convert session

  • Hi All


    Could someone check this tmc file for me please?


    This is my second day trying to generate an area. yesterday I followed the example had all the files in the correct places but could not get the tmc file to run. This morning I deleted everything and started again from scratch using an area in the UK, all files generated and in the correct folders inf file converted to tfw but still I am stuck at the tmc file.


    Any help would be very much appreciated.

  • Thanks for looking Rodeo.


    Added parentheses, no difference.


    It is a small location , done as a test file. It is in fact Coningsby England.


    From the tm log: 0.95-elevation: loading configuration file 'config-region-coningsby.tmc'= ERROR: (error loading 'config-region-coningsby.tmc')


    This is from the TFW file:


    0.00000715255737304688

    0

    0

    -0.00000536441802978516

    Not sure what you did as it looks no different but it ran ok. I would be grateful if you can explain.


    The problem now is where is the file it generated? Not in the aerofly_fs_2_geoconvert/scenery/images or in Documents folder Aerofly FS 2/scenery/images. Any idea.


    Thanks Mick

  • just took the original TMC file delivered with the geoconvert tool and added your coordinates.

    Probably we have overseen some character in your TMC.

    I had already done that at least 3 times, maybe I was saving in the wrong format .


    If it still fails, add up to 6 decimal places to your coordinates in the TMC and try it again.

    Did that and it generated the files! which would seem to go against advice earlier in the thread.


    Must say the the guide/tutorial could use a little fine tuning, however, all's well that ends well and I thank you very much for taking the time to help.

    Forgot to say Great sim. Spoilt for choice now.
