Texture and Terrain Tiles for Individual States
« on: January 14, 2017, 01:33:59 PM »
I have made sets of VFR and World Hi IFR texture tiles for Tacview for the states of California and Pennsylvania.  I'll be making a few more sets for other states as well.  The zip files in the links below contain SRTM1 and SRTM3 terrain tiles and VFR and IRF texture tiles for the given state.  These are large downloads, but at least you don't have to go hunt for the SRTM tiles.  Keep the texture tiles in their folders and just copy the files into Tacview.  If you move them you might inadvertently overwrite and lose a set of tiles.

Also, I have just about completed a lat-long matrix of the U.S. on a state-by-state basis to make it easy to see what tiles are needed for any given state.  I'll post a link for that when it is complete.

Finally, I originally made a post about this in the main Tacview forum.  Going forward, I'll post updates on this thread.

Thanks,
Paul

Nice work Paul!

I am going to mirror these files on Tacview add-ons webpage as soon as possible. Is there any readme.txt you would like me to add to the archive?

Thank you, Frantz.

I write up a short summary of how to use the spreadsheet and what files are in the tile packages and get that to you as soon as possible.
