Now...if they could get Orbx over there...

I could usw ORBX regions with reasonable settings on my notebook. The ORBX style XP scenery is unusable for me. But I'm looking forward to it once I have new hardware.

Just a random bump here.  I think the Euro guys have it made.  But OSM sucks in the USA in most areas...  I've not been able to find setups like this in the USA.  Kinda odd since USA usually has good data.

Yesh urban rural areas are scattered in the US, however it is vastly improving. I think there was even some calls to get groups together of osm mapping sessions over at the .org to cultivate areas around airports. At the end of the day it is only as strong as the interest of people in supplying data for free. In recent years especially in Europe there was a movement that maps should be public domain and governments even cooperated with OSM, like the UK National Mapping Service.

 

So i think in the US it will get better and I think even some IT companies support them now, mainly those that dont have a big map databases themselve. Myself have found it quite fun to map my own city in OSM and add some things. Its something that i do on longer cruises, quite good timekiller, and helps the situation :D

Yeah I gave it a shot for my local area...  got a bit lost..  Then we had another child lol...  I don't have time to commit to that but I agree with the concept that if you put time into something you'll get time out.

 

@x-plane 1 2 3 - that's great news.  Argh my CC has been suffering lately... FSX and XP10 releases ouch!  It's getting tougher to support two (three including P3D) sims!

 

A question for the pros (sorry I'm OT here)... post #7 with that shot - is that purely OSM scenery or is that the W2XP stuff with some photoscenery?  I'm confused on how to achieve that fidelity.  It looks like custom autogen on top of photoscenery.
