London Megatiles Update

Recommended Posts

Hi all, In addition to Quaxo's (Cristian's) work (which I can't wait yo get my hands on it) I have been working on 3 tiles around London ASAP ARAO and ASAO - in clear text this means the centre of london (see previous post) down to Biggin Hill. I still have some fine tuning to do and need some help on how to define airports as I want to do Biggin Hill in particular. I will have to brush up on my Fled skills as well. By the way can anyone tell what is the name of the aerodrome south west of Biggin Hill with what appear to be one runway closed.Cheers, QuentinAttached file Malibu above Biggin Hill

I am also very pleased with the results - thanks to the fantastic tools. As I create the bin files directly from the tga the high quality is retained. However the quality will be slightly reduced when I eventually upload because of the compression required. I won't be ready just yet because I need to tackle FLED which when I start it up on the London region gives me a blank image - any help welcome. Also can anyone tell me where I can upload a Visual pproach chart for Biggin Hill.Thanks,QvdG
