    Just up for air as today I completed the UK photo real scenery. Here are some pictures of the Isle of Skye requested by David.

    Cheers Mike.

    Brace yourself.......................55 GBs with the auto-gen which isn't too bad really, most of it I did in 2 M per PIX although a large part of Scotland was missing tiles in that resolution so the only ones that showed up and worked where in 5 M per PIX, still its better than cartoon scenery, now having a rest and slow flying around the North of the UK, cheers Mike.

    55 GB? Not too big - ES's NW Scotland area alone was 130 GB! Darren had the photo-scenery at 30cm and packaged it with hand placed buildings and Annotator (I think) placed autogen. ES had a disk based option, where you bought the disk with the 130 GB files and installed from that. Darren gave you the option of 'returning' the disk for your deposit back. Great idea.

    And anythings better than cartoon scenery - even OrbX!

    WOW that's a lot of scenery files!!!! After many years of "playing around" with FSET my current thinking is to make the larger areas in 2/3 M/PIX and ONLY use high definition 0/-1 for airfields/airports for take off's and landings. Last night I made the Orkney and Shetland Islands but didn't bother with Faroe as the images are very poor both in GE and Bing. Now for a long rest and maybe some actual flying! Cheers and beers Mike.
