Ed Correia Posted August 31, 2019 Share Posted August 31, 2019 TrueEarth US Washington SD Please note, this is the standard definition (SD) version of TrueEarth US Washington which uses 2.4m/pixel (ZL16) sharpened orthoimagery and uses a much smaller 58GB of disk space versus the 207GB of the HD version. No decompression is used by Orbx Central. This version is better suited to customers with video cards less than 8GB. This allows the texture slider to be set to 'Max' resulting in imagery almost the same quality as the HD version, but using 1/4 of the disk space. If you decide to upgrade to the HD version at a later time, you can do so for a nominal fee.
