I have to agree with you, this is quite excellent. Where did you get it from, if I may ask

Hi, I created it myself using fs earth tiles, different countries have different image quality so one has to accept what is available

sometimes though results can be spectacular

hi Guys , Jim it is too large to send to you Andros and the banks to Bimini is 1.4gb's and Nassau (new providence) in high density is 12gb or 1.55 in lower density. I am currently working my way around North Eluethera and the exxumas, however some of the imagery is differing in colour from plate to plate so not as perfect as the florida that i scanned from the keys to west palm beach.

However if anyone wants a copy simply send me a usb memory stick in the post and i will copy it across.

 

Greg I will stop south of the exumas as it is difficult to get all the colours right at the moment, hopefully there will be imagery available in a few months time that will be better than that is available at the moment

 

Hans if you want advise on how to do water masks look at Simhaven free forum there are lots of links there on how to do it

 

there are some more pics of the bahamas banks here: http://s739.photobucket.com/user/britfrog/library/test?sort=9&page=1

 

and a video here: 

 

All very amateurish i am afraid  but it gives some idea of what can be accomplished

Pretty damn good I'd say! In your second set of screenshots you can even see people on the ground!!! And the coastline in the last screen has the most subtle transitions from ground to water I've ever sen.

Thanks Sasha

many people do not like photoscenery as they say it gets blurry below 3000 feet and much of the commercial stuff does, however  as you can see over the port i am down to 300 feet and it is still very sharp, however below 300 feet it does get blurry but by then if you are landing at an airfield you are concentrating on the runway not the scenery

on this pic you can see the tennis players

I think another criticism of photoscenery is that it appears flat

 

what do you think??

While ultra high resolution (I take it your is at 30cm?), does help in the 3D illusion when looking down, during approach and landing is when you will lose the immersion no matter what the resolution.  Same as taking a very sharp 8 1/2 x 11" photo and looking at it across it's plane.   That's where 3D objects come into play to make up for the flatness.  Still, I would probably prefer what you have going over default for that area.

Well, when you are really low you loose immersion anyway, so the best combination is really hires photoscenery coupled with good airport scenery with surroundings like in ORBX products. Photoscenery with autogen coverage is even better ;)
