Largest map for MBS?

Postby jeffmorris » Tue 03 Jan 2006 - 01:15

What's the largest map for MBS 1.2? I found out that New York City area is about 900 square miles.

Scenery Designer is used for both sail and m/b sim.
Max height points is 2048.

What size do you want. width and height.
1000. miles would be only 35 by 35 miles or so, and should be no problem, as regards the dem and scenery being generated.
Is that what you mean?

I think that one mile equals about 1610 meters and the program uses metric measurement system. I was trying to use a DEM bitmap file generated by MicroDEM but I'm confused. In Trainz, each baseboard is 72 meters long and wide. I tried to use Paint Shop Pro 10 to select the blue lines from the bitmap and paste them into a new bitmap file but I didn't know how to do that.

Jeff can't help I am afraid.
I posted on the Scenery Forum about hgt files but I don't expect a reply.
I got as far as downloading hgt files, and opened them OK with 3DEM but scenery dem editor doesn't want to know.
You can open 256 colours in dem editor, 8 bit bitmap as a dem, but is greyscale, and still needs heights.

Measurements are in meters in the dem editor. At least for setting the dem size and setting contour heights, etc.

Wish a few others would post and give some help.

There is a free program that can convert all types of measuremnets, including nautical miles, etc. UCONEER.

You have San Francisco large map too for Sail Simulator and Motorboat!
But this map is without object, maybe only one lighthouse...!? :D

You can download it for free on the Virtual Passage site here:
