It's amazing what detail can be obtained using Background compiles. I combined all of the .inf files to produce a single bgl. These are zoomed in views in TmfViewer, one from the USA and one from Europe,

Where in your scenery, \Addon Scenery\scenery?

If so, make a new folder, \Addon Scenery\My Scenery\scenery <----

Move the BGL file there, activate in the Scenery Library, go see if it shows in FSX.

I´m new on Photo scenery making but i´ve alredy meda a few venezuelan military airbases

BALANDA.jpg
Jacinto Lara Int. and Vicente Landaeta AB


BAEL.jpg
El Libertador AB


but when i´d tryed to creat my 1st int. airport..... none of the sbuilderx server gave me a background that i´d could use. the i´d opened the web page available to obtein the image and "voila" The city of Maturin and the Jose Tadeo Monagas Int airport (SVMT) were clearly there.... my question is how can place that image into my proyect and how can i make a bgl from it. sorry but i´m not an expert in the programing theme, just a fsx addict and a aviation enthusiat.
My english is not very good but hope is understandable,
thanks...

The latest tileserver DLLs are found here:

http://cid-f3950c5bbd2bcfa1.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/FS%20Addons/FSX%20Tools/TileServerPack%5E_May%5E_13%5E_2010.zip

Save the old DLLs to a safe location ( as a precaution ), then simply place the DLLs into the C:\Program Files\SBuilderX313\Tiles folder to activate the new ones.

This should fix some problems with older DLLs.

+++++++++++++++++++

If you wish to use a gmaps screenshot, I would suggest using:

http://www.ludowise.x10hosting.com/gmaps/rhumbamaps.html as it has some slight improvements over Luis' original online maps.

Note the The boundaries of the map are: box as similar to this...

Code: Select all
[GEOGRAPHIC]
Name=Photo_0001
North=42.64358763213482
South=42.624644097628334
West=-88.6182975769043
East=-88.58396530151367


Copy that code to a text file that matches you screenshot BMP file. For example, I save a 3200 x 2400 screenshot as C59.bmp and save the above text as C59.txt. Place both of these files into the C:\Program Files\SBuilderX313\Tools\Work folder, and add the map from disk. The map will be auto referenced to the right location, and ready for compiling.
