As someone who devours every word you write Loyd (sad, huh?), I append below my working version of the Norway details as a way of saying thank you so much for all your input.[Service Example 5]### Norwegian Service ### 1-24-10cache_folder=D:\tileproxy\service cache\cache.service5network_module=libnettilemodule_config="conn=20|rate=4.0|verbose=0|server=http://ts1*.webatlas.no|path=/qt_1881/%s.png?s=%v|quad=0123|balance=0123456|useragent=Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.04506; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)"map_version=1min_level=9max_level=19level_mapping=9,10,11,12,14,14,15,16,17,18,19#(JRG changed 12-18-09)#level_mapping=10,11,14,14,14,15,17,18#level_mapping=8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,19#even more radius in HQ (12,13->14)color_hack=nocolor_level=0bulk_extend=100HNY, Freedie
Service1 is what I normally use almost everywhere.However, big part of PR is only color in Bing up to level 13; after that, is greyscale. Yahoo, has better imagery for the whole of PR.in the INI file: Google is no longer referenced (per THEIR request)- so no service2The Map.com (service4) uses bing maps, so there's little point in having that listed - I deleted that section.Acme is only an example - not intended to be actually used. Delete.Resulting in my .ini only having 2 services listed. Somewhere in the forums someone listed a site for Norway(?) but I didn't write it down and don't use it yet.Don't know why your service 1 doesn't look as good but I'll note that your posted ini has you set to make 30cm scenery which could be a big part of the problem. very few places in the world have that level available (LAX does, I think). Scenery at this level is massive and will bog down most computersThe cache_bytes_limit=100000000 is much too small, I think. I run at 1000Mb ( 1Gb ).Loyd

Now that was thoughtful; thank you sir!I've added it to my .ini so I don't forget - again.When I get clear of OZ-land, I'll get back up EuropeNorth again.Any particular destination that you think best shows off the region?lat/lon or ICAOLoyd
saying thank you so much for all your input.

Due to CPU limitations, I usually have to limit speed to 60-100kts during the initial flight AND reduce range to 3.5. After the tiles are made, TP only 'monitors' so reflying the same area does NOT require more downloads or newly made scenery so I raise the radius to 4.5 or occasionally 5.5; I can't fly 6.5 unless it's VERY slow flight in a balloon or blimp. I'm adding new scenery at the edges, as it were, with the higher settings but most of the work was done on the initial flight.Special consideration: TP will still make scenery if it is started AFTER FSX though Photo scenery will NOT be displayed at this time. There is less CPU load so I can 'make scenery' at 4.5 with low default settings. This is especially useful for having an autopiloted flightplan to cover an area while you are away or even asleep for hours. When it's done, restart both with TP first in the normal order, and the scenery should be ready to fly.Loyd
I'll try modifying the cache limit and I also heard that one should put the lod_radius in FSX.cfg to 5.5 or 6.5.I have been searching through many forums and websites. I can conclude that to achive the most realistic look and feel of FAX you will need to use Map Services data to create the sceanery, use Rex 2.0 and buy the airports that you will be using frequently. With those three enhancements, FSX will be very realistic.I have one more question. Is Tileproxy the only available software that let you use map service for the sceanery? Is there any other software that let you pre-download and pre-create the sceanery based on map service data and let you fly without the need to download and recreate the tiles each time you flight? Thanks.

Glad it's working for you.I see that I actually didn't answer a previous question: there are at least 2 programs that will make scenery before flying with it. FSEarthtiles ( I think the name is ) and SBuilder. I have never used either to make photo-scenery though I did use SBuilderX to provide Map jpgs that I converted manually into suitable tiles for TileProxy use and flew over a 'map' instead of photoscenery. I was just curious if it would work. It did.I think either would be better to use if you just wanted a more limited region as photo scenery - an island, for instance. Tileproxy works with the larger-sized scenery elements of FS9/FSX and I don't know any way to cleanly limit it to just a small area.It should be possible (though tedious) to take Tileproxy jpgs and convert them for use with SBuilder. I'll have to try that sometime - experiments usually teach you something...Loyd
I modified the cache limits, etc and try with Bing and it works in new never visited areas, when I tried in PR, it seems that it uses the already downloaded tiles from Yahoo because it shows them in color. I need to overclock my i3 550 from 3.2 to 4.2 or 4.5 in order to improve tile loading speed and higher lod_ring. Thanks for the help.

Thanks for remembering that; I'll have to check that also.L
I also recall seeing something calld map2bgl or maps2bgl which converts images to scenery.Couldn't tell you how easy it is to use though.IAN
