Just one tile to go...and soon my first flight over France.  Can anybody who lives in France suggest the best source for that country?

I use google it has better colours than bing

I'm using GO2 right now for the series...but..I wonder if Google is starting to seriously throttle these download paths.

I am trying to generate a tile around Paris, and with using GO2, it is downloading and converting a jpg, every 10 to 15 seconds with a delay of that time in between. It is taking an hour or more, to now generate one tile. With BI(ng), it would take no more than 15-20 minutes at zl17/19/2.

I can't believe that the tile that captures Paris is so involved, that it is taking Ortho4XP so long to convert/compile each .jpg picture to a DDS file.  Could be..or..are sources now starting to throttle?  I wonder...

i live in France and have scanned the whole of france at 35cms /pixel for fsx however there is certainly a problem trying to do the same for XP level 17 is nearly impossible, i do not yet know if it is a problem with GO2 or ortho4xp but what was a simple operation for fsx has nopw become  a task. must try to get to the root of the problem. I have in the past had problems with google but that was 2 years ago.

Hi Captain...well, I was successful at zl17/19/2 by using GO2 (the Google sat server)  It took some time for the tile to generate around Paris..but it did.  I'm about to take my first flight in the 18 tiles I did generate, as you see above.

If it did not turn out...(haven't seen them yet...) then I will re-cut at zl16/18/2 and see if that is successful.
