  1. How can that be, if imagery of TE Spain South includes the southeast imagery of Portugal ? The citys of Faro, Beja and Portalegre are included in the imagery, and they are portuguese citys, not spanish, so It doesn't make any sense from my point of view...
  2. So, with the relase of TE Spain South an upcoming TE Spain North is in the plans I guess... but why did you guys not include Portugal? That would be something like Iberia South and North releases... is there any particular reason to be only Spain ?
  3. Defenitly The "Challenges" part, was the thing that thril my attention to Volanta. I'm really looking forward to check all the features this new package will bring...
  4. Thank you! I thought It would be an automatic avaiablity whenever an update comes out. I'll notify you again when the next update released whatever is needed or not.
  5. There is not mutch to say, just to give an heads up about Scenery Animation Manager (SAM), installed through Orbx Central, is currently listed as "version 2.0.2 installed and updated", but latest version is 2.0.3, released on February 3. Please update SAM on Orbx Central too. Thank you
  6. DONE IT !!! I converted all original 4k dds to jpg reducing to half size at the same time, and the converted all jpg to dds DXT1 with generated mipmaps (had a precious tip from a friend) Now I'm enjoying TrueEarth Great Britain South in 2k resolution orthos, much faster to load and even more fluid, 40+ fps, on xEnviro stormy weather.
  7. Yes, they are dds DXT5, even after size reduction. I just don't have a clue why XP keeps giving me that error, if files are present, all of them. I've just rerun "verify files" in orbx central, and it didn't reinstall the original 4k .dds files. So reduced size doesn't seem to be the issue...
  8. Is there a particular way to downsize textures ? after doing it with a generic pic converter, I'm always getting errors saying all .dds files do not exist. "WARNING: we are missing the texture: Custom Scenery/Orbx_C_GB_South_TrueEarth_Orthos/textures/ab60xfd10x17.dds" ... ... ... but all are present I didn't move them nor change their names somehow during orbx installation they get some particular ID, that after downsizing them that ID is gone...
  9. Thank you! your explanation is very helpful, i'll give it a try. That's a very logical thought, thanks for the tip. Any idea on how could I downsize terrain mesh files?
  10. I'm really hoping for an SD version of all GB packages, I've bought GB South but I'm starting to have disk space problems. I have TE SD versiond of Washington and Oregon and they're perfect for me... if Orbx releases SD versions for GB I won't hesitate on buying North and Central, assuming South would be free to owners of HD version already. In the meantime I'm struggling to convert original HD to half definition...
  11. That would be possible if there was an SD version of TrueEarth GB South, witch there isn't at the moment, or I wouldn't have created this topic.
  12. First things first: This ins not a support request. I want to downsize orthos rom TrueEarth GB South. I've tried a simple app to downsize textures files (.dds) to half (from default 4096x4096 to 2048+2048). witch I did sucefully, but when I load XP with the reduced size tiles, I'm getting errors like the one below: 0:11:38.784 E/SYS: +-------------------------------------------------------------------------------0:11:38.784 E/SYS: | Error, could not locate image file for terrain0:11:38.784 E/SYS: | Custom Scenery/Orbx_C_GB_South_TrueEarth_Orthos/terrain/a910xf8e0x17.ter0:11:38.784 E/SYS: | Custom Scenery/Orbx_C_GB_South_TrueEarth_Orthos/terrain/0:11:38.784 E/SYS: | ../textures/a910xf8e0x17.dds0:11:38.784 E/SYS: | (REN_terrain.cpp:168)0:11:38.784 E/SYS: +------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I don't have a clue of what that exactly means, even less how to correct it, so I'm asking any expert in this matter, would it be possible to provide some instructions on how to properly downsize the orthos, as in TE Washington and Oregon SD ? Thank you
  13. So, i've downsized all .dds files in textures folder from "Orbx_C_GB_South_TrueEarth_Orthos", after backing up original ones. When I try to load it I get this error: 0:11:38.784 E/SYS: +------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 0:11:38.784 E/SYS: | Error, could not locate image file for terrain 0:11:38.784 E/SYS: | Custom Scenery/Orbx_C_GB_South_TrueEarth_Orthos/terrain/a910xf8e0x17.ter 0:11:38.784 E/SYS: | Custom Scenery/Orbx_C_GB_South_TrueEarth_Orthos/terrain/ 0:11:38.784 E/SYS: | ../textures/a910xf8e0x17.dds 0:11:38.784 E/SYS: | (REN_terrain.cpp:168) 0:11:38.784 E/SYS: +------------------------------------------------------------------------------- All the image files exist, I didn't touch them. am I missing something, or is it a more complicated process? Thank you.
  14. Is there a way to "manualy" downsize? textures .dds files to half resolution like in TrueEarth Oregon SD ?? Thank you
  15. Just bought TE South and i'm amazed with so much detail, with smoth performance on my end, so hands down for all orbx team who made it possible! Now I would guys advise me a good EGLC London City scenery (free or payware), that blends with TE south, while Orbx doesn't release EGLC for XP? Thank you.
