    problems downloading scenery

    Post by britfrog on Thu May 19, 2016 8:43 am

    Is anyone else getting this problem? i am trying to create my region at -2 definition using GEand about every hour or so it throws out and demands a password. However when i put in the correct password it goes back to 1 and i need to download 432 tiles!!

    There's an ole'saying, close all down and reboot? If that don't work then maybe the server you are down loading from is at fault? Sad

    I generally use Bing Virtual Earth as you know although I have used GE for recent projects and never get any problems with FSET not that its much help to you.

    What is demanding a "password"?

    it has only started happening when i choose to download a large quantity of -2 images and then leave it on overnight, i get up the next day and it says it has requested the next image but it is not forth coming , if i click on the www tag on the bottom right i get a window appear with a box saying install password and next to it is the password , you enter it and it starts all over again downloading the images , about an hour later , the box reappears demanding another password, which it supplies and it starts all over again, most frustrating

    it could be James,
    however I have had particular problems in the past with google earth and I think it could be google france putting in the heavy hand, having said that it is downloading properly now since 9am and still going strong. fingers crossed
    it may be that I have asked it to download my whole region, i am now asking it to download smaller strips of 35 images rather than 432

    Fingers crossed and you may be right with smaller lots as again asking for the lot may have been to much for your IPS bandwidth..

    well I managed to create a strip of coastal scenery about 50 miles long at -2, however having compiled it I have noticed that it is a different season to the 0 scenery GRRRRRH! the ) scenery is summer the -2 is winter . I had hoped to combine the -2 scenery in places of interest and use the 0 in fields and countryside, so that will not work
    I have also noticed that the -2 scenery causes blurries at 200 knots as it clearly requires more time/power to draw the picture, so maybe I shall have to be happy with the 0 scenery7?

    I have realized after testing that zero scenery is the way to go on the larger areas with 80% not 100% in the image compression folder and then small islands like Jersey, Malta etc can be done successfully in minus two.But hey that's just my take on it?
