Recommended Posts

Just a 2 pics to show that the only limit to the size when using Ground2K4 is the amount of memory you haveThe size is topright corner S 42:10.00E172:30.00bottomleft corner S43:55.00E174:00.00The only thing was I made 2 projects.

Hi Norman.The actual bitmap dimensions need to be under 10000x10000 pixels. Under 8000x8000 avoids some odd problems when working on the corners of the background map.Just my experience.Dick

Dick....When you go over to another cell ( quardrant) as he has done, Will the program cover that? Does it make separate bgl's for each cell?I just finished a scenery and stopped at the cell line as I didn't know what would happen. Yes, the map Coords covered the area, top left and Bot right.ThanksJoe W.

Hi Joe.With G2k4 you can transparently cross a cell border... and it doesn't make a separate BGL to do so. That's good, as you can let your background image control the actual project area bounds.Dick

Great ....Thanks Dick.... I wish I had known that about 2 weeks ago. I stopped at the border. But I will remember that in the future.I also placed some dirt roads in that scenery and they all had roads branching out from the main road and the sides of the roads made it appear that they ended and then started up again. Has anyone developed a way to stop that from happening? I even placed roads on top of other roads to eleminate that.... It didn't.Thanks againJoe W.
