  1. One remark : you can freely change the parameters inside blurX.scm to suit your preferences for the transition. I have uploaded an example blurX.scm.inland (you have to rename it to blurX.scm if you want it to be used) I prefer it over the original one when using the use_masks_for _inland option (it makes the transtion smooth but keeps some of the orthophoto also in the middle of the rivers (so do not use if if there is real sea or spoiled orthophotos!)). I use it with masks_width=2. If you wish to experiment the important line in the blurX script is :
  2. When you experience a problem with a TMS server you can check the "check TMS response" (right of "skip convert"). It can be put on on the fly, and also stopped on the fly, it will keep reasking small tiles until they are indeed advertised as jpegs (can lead to a dead loop if the server really hgas nothing to deliver). On the other hand, when a server has issues, it is wise to wait untill it recovers ;-)
  3. I have uploaded my home version on the dropbox (for windows users I found some cuda aware nvcompress, but I barely tested it on one tile, yet it seemed to be fine with10min for the whole tile). The windows nvcompress is included in Utils/nvcompress/ dir (just copy the dir at the same place). You should update Ortho4XP.py and Ortho4XP.cfg (and Carnet_d_addresses if you wish). Small new features in this version, in addition to the dds fix include : - possibility to use a different provider for sea textures (I am using that to build tiles for updating zoneph
  4. Sorry I should have put the updated version online for a while, but I had other changes in mind so I postponed it. I will put it this evening or more probably tomorrow evening. It uses nvcompress for the jpeg to dds conversion if no color correction is aked. Otherwise is first uses imagemagick convert jpeg to png for the color correction followed by nvcompress for png to dds. I will ask imagemagick developper to include the dxt1a version for the next release if they can. Xgrinder unfortunately is 3 times slower than nvcompress with the -fast switch, at least on
  5. I do not understand where those squares come from, here is an example with the original dds on the left and the way it is rendered in X-Plane on the right, it shows that the problem is not in the dds (I checked in lower mipmaps and no problem either, it really puzzles me). I will ask Ben Supnik about a possible cause in the rendering engine...
  6. @ffm_750 brew update brew install p7zip @WilKur große Probleme! (typical bad dds compression when almost flat color) Strange to see it there and so strong (is your X-Plane rendering option "texture res" far from "extreme" ?). Can you give the lat/lon of the place for testing here ?
  7. Entschuldigung... es ein Fehler war. http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?showtopic=90469&p=973852
  8. Hallo, Im Handbuch, Kapitel 7.1 (sorry I go on in english) : elevation files always contain some form of "noise", and are therefore not appropriate to reproduce flat runways. For that reason the triangles corresponding to airports are FORCED to be flat at the mean altitude of all the boundary points of the airport. For that, Ortho4XP needs to know where is the boundary of the airport, and it relies on Openstreetmap (not on apt.dat) : there must be a closed "way" or a "rel" tagged "aeroway"="aerodrome" corresponding to your airport in Openstreetmap. Sometimes (it really depends on t
  9. 1) Sie können auswählen : contrast_adjust, saturation_adjust, brightness adjust in der Konfigurationdatei 2) Die letzte Version ist bereits in der Dropbox hier https://www.dropbox.com/sh/cjjwu92mausoh04/AACt-QzgMRwKDL392K_Ux3cPa?dl=0 Sehr schöne Ihre Bilder Markus ;-) Gruß Os(k)ar
