Thanks for that, very very helpful.

All I can suggest with regard to screenshots is to place a link in the post text. I have seem youtube vids done this way.

I will be posting some screenshots in the near future. Not sure if anyone is interested; however, I will share my findings with different FSEarthTiles ini file settings. It seems like there are an endless number of variables that can be used. I believe I have found some good results and small file sizes. I will post here for anyone that is interested.

Columbia South Carolina East Departure at 4,500ft


FSEarthTiles ini file settings:

DL Resolution = 2

MinimumDestinationLOD = 9,16

These are the two main settings that can be "tweaked/changed".

Knoxville Tennessee North Dept_United Airlines_B737-800_Altitude: 8,000ft


FSEarthTiles ini file settings:

DownloadResolution = 3

MinimumDestinationLOD = 9,16

CompressionQuality = 85

I used DL Res of 3 this time in order to download bigger areas quicker.

Here is another screenshot with the same settings as the second screenshot.

Do you know how to upload screen shots to a post?

You'll need to upload it to an image hosting service (i.e. photobucket) and then copy the 'img' tags and paste in the post i.e.

oops- looks like you've already figured that out!
