    How to make this 3d in xplane?

    This can download 3d maps: https://github.com/retroplasma/earth-reverse-engineering How to move it to xplane? The only problem is how to combine multiple textures into one file. And, i suggest commanding the program to download octant level 16's data, and type 19 in the line "node dump_obj.js"...

    I dont want robotic voice

    I recently developed a windows form application that allows users to speaks in vatsim or ivao by typing. However, it sounds robotic because it is using the voice of system.speech (and the voice synthesizer). I know the voice synthesizer can replace the default voice with whatever voice packs I...

    FS2020 seems to be a game, but not simulator

    Hope that cloud streaming is not a must, I do not think every player have a good network. If regions where a flight will fly-by can be downloaded and stored locally will be great. I bet if Lockheed Martin and Austin Meyer have better sceneries, they will win Microsoft because of their addon...

    Combining BGL files improves frame rate?

    If I have 100 terrain files, will combining them to 10 large files improves frame rate? If I combined, FSX has to load larger photos, it may take longer time, but only a limited draw call. However, if there is a lot of files, there may be a lot of draw calls. Which one is right? And is it the...

    terrain mesh fsx

    I have successfully turned geotiff images to BGL files now, but the scenery is flat. What can I do to create a mesh from open street map or simply myself? I know FreeMeshX but I do not want to use it.

    JPEG compression support is not configured

    When I place a jpeg converted GeoTiff file to fsx resample.exe, it ends up with the error: "JPEG compression support is not configured." What can I do so that I can still use my GeoTiff files? Below is the geotiff file that I want to become BGL file
