Standard Detail Scenery Tiles Missing Since 1/09/2019.

Postby S2_AK » Sun Sep 15, 2019 1:03 pm

Hello, my username is S2_ AK.

Has anyone noticed that the Standard Detail scenery tiles have been missing on the FlightGear website
for about a month now?

If you have any clues or ideas on how to get them back again please post the answer here.

P.S. If the Standard Detail scenery tiles are being modified, let the rest of the FlightGear community know
in advance!

Regards,


S2_AK :wink:

I would imagine the legacy parts of the webpage were removed along with this scenery. Remember - someone has to pay for hosting that scenery ;)

You can use TerraSync or especially TerraMaster to download scenery automatically, far easier than downloading tiles (which means you have to download everything in order to update ;) )

Thanks. Yeah that was it!

It just seems strange that parts of the scenery section are missing. Is that normal or is it some-thing that's going to happen on a regular basis?

Yes, that's exactly what I'm looking for. That's so great that you can provide me with that type of stuff. I've had some other issues with FlightGear 2.6 and the FlightGear web site in general. Such as; the legacy section of their webpage is not available, the Zivko_Edge won't load, and some other areas of their web site are, "just plain slack!"

Is there any way you can tell these guys (or girls) to smarten up their homepage?

Hey if you need any aircraft you might want to try here:

ummm... FG v2.6??? that's from February 17, 2012... it is EOL (End of Life) and no longer supported... it is no wonder that the web pages do not support it either...

if your system can, you should try to update it to the latest FG release so you get all the bug fixes and newest features available... being able to get support is also a big plus ;)

To wkitty42,

Yes, I must admit FlightGear 2.6 is getting-on now. But I had guessed that FlightGear users find the jump between working versions so erratic anyway, that they may as well have downloaded an even lower version than FlightGear 2.6. Say, FlightGear 2.1 for example.

I doubt users do that... Anyway, you're of course free to use any version you like, just don't expect much in terms of support.

At least graphically the arguments for upgrading are compelling :)

To Legoboyvdlp,

But still, it is possible that FlightGear are actually updating the Standard Scenery tiles at the mom-ent, regardless whether or not the Zivko_Edge will load. You have to tell these big wigs that any type of scenery comes first?

no, no scenery updates are being done... there are new objects added quite regularly though...

why aren't scenery updates being done? because currently the entire world has to be built and that may take weeks or months... when i say "scenery" here, i'm speaking of terrain...

there is on-going work being done to be able to update the scenery in a more timely manner but it is slow going and the generating process has to be restarted as bugs are found and fixed... sometimes the bugs are in the data... other times in the code... there have been numerous bugs found and fixed but generating the scenery for the entire world still takes a long time to run...

as far as the old scenery goes, you get what's there... i'm personally not aware of any plans to update it further...

Dear wkitty42,

OK! I understand. But would it be wise to say that FlightGear have deliberately moved onto the the High Detail Tiles on purpose, because, as you said, the Standard Detail tiles can wait?

thank you,

Standard detail tiles will not be updated.
If anything, the only thing would be a world scenery rebuilt with lower elevation mesh complextity. But that is probably still several years in the future.
