Nice Mitch, your orthos always look very sharp and crisp.

I generally use ZL16 because of disk-space, and the difference here is quite clear

First I thought I can live with zl16 due to the same reason, disk space.  But now I just bought a WD 8TB drive, but will also do tiles only around the areas that I like.  zl17 is definitely much sharper.  The new re-release by Fokboy2 at the Org are also now 1 m (zl17) too.  He started out with zl16, with 6 km around airport in zl17, but I guess he also found zl16 not sharp enough.

Yep, I redid a lot of my US tiles around California at ZL17. I also redid NZ at ZL17.

My new rule is to do scenic areas and areas I will use a lot at ZL17, and then filler tiles as ZL16. Seems to work well for me now

Me too.  The rule I use is by looking at the data from OSM, if there is no airport in in tile, then it's a good candidate for zl16.  Btw, is zl16 look good only at higher than 8000 FT?

I find ZL16 looks fine at around 3000ft AGL. But I like to fly around at lower altitudes when doing low & slow flights. ZL17 is a must I think then.

If I was flying over in a jet at 30,000ft, I'd probably even drop to ZL15

Hi Tony,

My 'recipe' has worked out well for me. Most satisfied with the visual output.

Cheers,

I did test tiles at zl18 and full zl19.  Truly, there was not that much difference between those two prior, and visuals at zl17, as as much a visual degradation difference (huge), ---- between zl16 and zl17.

I don't ever generate above zl17, unless it is those two km's around an airport of airfield.

Yes thank you very much!

I used BI for Ireland, France, England and Italy, Austria Svizzera.

Unfortunately, the Corse and Sardinia with BI is completely green ..... So I used ARC end it's OK!.

For the Baleari Islands in Spain I used ARC ...... I wanted to make sure I use the best provider for Spain. Thanks again!

You're quite welcome.  As far as X-Plane is concerned, I don't leave Ortho4XP, home without it, lol.

One of the best all-time programs ever seen for any platform, let alone just one. This for myself, has transformed the genre. I have all of North America (less South America), Central America, Most of Western Europe, including Scandinavia converted.  I just couldn't go back to generic land class ever again. That would be nails upon the chalkboard. I can't wait for Orbx to release their first True Earth series for X Plane.  Like others, a lot of us are in hot anticipation of PNW being converted to this new scenery tech.

Thanks for the ARC suggestion. I was using BING and getting some black scenery around LEMG.
