    The INF and TFW file support in GeoConvert is just for convenience here. GeoConvert needs to know what part of the world a certain aerial image is covering, the definition for this is in the AIC file. GeoConvert tries to convert INF and TFW files to AIC ( Aerial Image Configuration ) automatically, again just for convenience.


    The TMC file is completely different from this and is not linked to the AIC file at all.


    Using the TMC file you just specify the region where GeoConvert should generate aerial images and with what resolution.


    We will try to make this clear in the Wiki soon.

    Dear Aerofly users,


    as the number of user contributed downloads have increased a lot, we have moved all Aerofly FS 2 aircraft repaints to our new Download section.


    The user contributed scenery creations will also move to this new section shortly.


    We hope those new pages are clearly arranged for a better overview.

    awesome folks, keep your images coming :)


    Regarding mesh resolution: We do have higher global elevation data. Please give us some time to review this and add it to the base simulator by default.


    GeoConvert could be used to generate new elevation data as well, we just haven't made it public yet as you can misuse this functionality. We need a better tutorial first, before releasing this functionality.

    The stripes are not a conflict with the existing DLC. It rather looks like GeoConvert is feed with input aerial images it is not interpreting right. If you could provide more details here regarding your input images, this would help.


    As far as overlap with existing DLC content goes: This is something that we haven't addressed yet as there is no real solution to it if you think about it a little, but we will see what we might do here in the future to improve it.

    We will write a small introductory in the Wiki soon, to get the 'greater' picture on what is required and how this process works.


    The GeoConvert tool, like we have said before, is not just plug and play. Creating aerial images for use with Aerofly FS 2 is a fairly complex step, this is necessary however to have a smooth operation while flying.


    So be patient, we will try to write a better introduction soon.

    Hartman, we looked at the website but its all norwegian, no indication on how to purchase this data and if its ok for usage with Flight Simulators, can you help us some more here and maybe translate what you mentioned in your previous posting? If you want, you can get in contact with us via email at mail (at) ipacs.de, this should be quicker.

    The elevation data we currently use for world wide coverage only goes to +/- 60 degrees latitude. We do have data beyond that but haven't converted it yet.


    May we ask if it would be possible for you to check on how we can download this elevation data for Norway? The website is in norwegian only.


    Also do you know if any good aerial image data is available for Norway either for free or for purchase?
