How to display BMS maps in Tacview?
« on: July 28, 2017, 07:46:20 PM »
With Tacview 1.6.3 beta 1, you can now display your own custom textures and orthophoto in Tacview!

http://tacview.net/download/beta/

For this example, you will need the Korea VFR map which can be found here: http://users.skynet.be/bs999158/F4download_navigation.htm

Save or copy the jpeg file as:
Code: [Select]
C:\ProgramData\Tacview\Data\Terrain\Textures\ONC_kneemap_korea_4096_print.jpg
Download the xml file: http://www.tacview.net/download/CustomTextureList.xml

And save or copy it as:
Code: [Select]
C:\ProgramData\Tacview\Data\Terrain\Textures\CustomTextureList.xml
Relaunch Tacview, make sure BMS terrain is automatically or manually displayed and you should see the Korean low-level VFR map!

Feel free to edit CustomTextureList.xml to add more BMS maps in Tacview based on the theaters coordinates which can be found in:
Code: [Select]
C:\Program Files (x86)\Tacview (beta)\Data\Xml\Data-Falcon4Theaters.xml
Best enjoyed with the excellent KTO AIP by Windblow: http://www.tacview.net/download/addons/

Special thanks to Olivier Beaumont for his great VFR maps!

Enjoy!
