• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Photo coverage too big for FSX

Hello,

Here is the problem: I have created a scene with photo coverage for FSX and Prepar3D. The scene on Prepar3D works very well especially on the 64 bits version. On FSX after a few minutes, most often after a panning, the simulator crashes.

After checking all the technical points and BGL, the only possible source of error would be the size of the 4 tiles. Indeed each tile (BGL) is more than 30 Mb and the starting images (8 BMP and 4 TIF) are more than 330 Mb.

As I reworked each image to homogenize the colors, remove uninteresting details (cars, parking, etc), I wanted to know if there was a way to cut these 12 images into smaller elements so that FSX could accept this more easily.
I think I read a method proposed by someone on FSDevelopers but I can't find it.

If someone can give me some advices, it should be appreciated.
Didier

Hi Didier!

That sounds strange.
As far as i know my photosceneries are also running in the FSX without problems, and those bgls are sometimes > 2 GB each.
Are you sure, that it is caused by your photoscenery?

The scenery is CYMX on French-VFR site, what I have developed under P3D.
On this opus, I have no problem but since January, two FSX users have the same PB : After a panoramic view, they return on the desktop.
