Photorealistic Chile - Still it comes!

Recommended Posts

Not a post to criticise this fantastic product, in fact it's the opposite. This addon, which seems to be endless, has me very keen to try it out now.Could David Ventura Chamudes perhaps please come on here and let us know how far from the end it is ? :-) So far by my calculation there are 350+ files. For all those who are a tad confused, here is my take off.S31 W69 - 16 filesS31 W70 - 16 filesS31 W71 - 16 files S31 W72 - 16 filesS32 W69 - 16 filesS32 W70 - 16 filesS32 W71 - 16 files S32 W72 - 16 filesS33 W69 - 16 filesS33 W70 - 16 filesS33 W72 - 16 filesS34 W69 - 16 filesS34 W70 - 16 filesS34 W71 - 16 files S34 W72 - 16 filesS35 W69 - 16 filesS35 W70 - 16 filesS35 W71 - 16 files S35 W72 - 16 filesS35 W73 - 16 filesS36 W72 - 12 filesS36 W73 - 16 filesIf you average each one at 20mb - that's 7 Gb!! Oh my..... lucky I have no bandwidth limits :-)

Is this just texture scenery for the ground, or is anything in 3D models added?Can you add just a few or do you have to wait until all are loaded to install?Has anyone tried it? Is it worth the hd space?

Just ground textures as far as I know, but I thought they looked excellent. I picked S34W70 as a trial, which contains some nice mountains. Had to fly at fl20 to avoid collisions! Compared with the default MS scenery, I thought this was excellent, particularly for the mountains.Perhaps not as high res as payware, but nonetheless excellent and don't forget free. Big thanks are due to David for his work here.I'm downloading it all. 7GB is a small price to pay to discover Chile like this.Since there are so many files, is there an easy way to download the lot from avsim? Seems like a lot of mouse clicks to get it from the regular avsim pages.

The scenery, to me, is not worth it, as the resolution is not great. But I am more of an Autogen guy. As far as I know, you have to download them one at a time. If AVSim offered a complete package, it would probably crush their bandwidth.

>Anybody have any screenshots?>I would love to download this scenery in one big package, or>at least a few packages of a couple of GB eachJust download a 16 file set for a lat/long coordinate. Or even just a few files. Slew to that lat/long and up to 10 or 15,000 feet. You should be able to see the tiles.

I downloaded one set of 16. I have to agree the mesh is awsome but the tex's not so much. I think you have to have it all in though, as I got huge breakups and wierd things going on with just a single lat/log set installed.

No matter, if you don't think the textures are all that, stick with the mesh. It really helps those mountains.
