FWIW I just tried DLing one, kinda / sorta blind and I got a map from an area somewhere near Vienna so with perseverance and luck you might get something but there is definitely a problem with that server

This one is from an area around Munich and it looks pretty good and might be useful to someone as it is a seriously interesting map

I got another one that's even better than the first. The river course is really obvious

Default Re: Height Maps

Man I am still having massive issues with this wonderful tool.

When I go to a location (using the correct coordinates) it just gives me a white page and then if I zoom almost all the way out, eventually the map will paint. But then when I zoom back in the map stays the same size and then eventually turns to white. And when I download a map it's empty.

Just trying to get a part of Dublin for a scenario I am making (Near the Court House) but having absolutely no luck in getting this great tool to work anymore.

Default Re: Height Maps

Have you tried entering the exact co-ordinates you want then DL the map and check it ? It will work it just won't show the location exactly so you have to pick the precise centre of the area then enter the coordinates. I use Bing maps for that as you can right-click on the spot and the Lat and Long are displayed without having to do another step like Google.

Think of it as IFR flight. There is something wrong with the server to make it that slow. Treat it like it's 1990.

But yeah, it's NFG ATM

Don thanks that was a brilliant suggestion!

At least I got a nice strip map of the area I wanted.

Thanks!

Default Re: Height Maps

I have found when you get the white screen is you keep zooming out you will eventually pick up the map and then can zoom in and maintain it but it will be fuzzy so you don't have the fine control but you can get close and with practice, close enough in most cases. It can be frustrating but at least it's not entirely dead in the water.

For all the brilliance this thing can bring to the game (and that map example I posted is a good example. To create those contours by hand would take a week of manual work )....... the "map centring" routine is tedious after awhile. It would be much better to be able to lock on the map boundary and move it to where you want rather than moving the map to it

Also, I just discovered that the 'M' and 'S' buttons work (map and satellite), just an FYI.

Yes, you can click on that until the satellite image appears and see what you need to see so it's more usable than it first appears to be
