Sytner's Satellite Maps 2.0 (preview release)
#1
[Image: PUsI6mI.jpg]

The original maps managed to attract quite a following, so by popular request here's the first update! Plenty more planned for subsequent releases if the demand continues.

New since 1.0:

- Resolution increased from 1024x1024 to 4096x4096
- Flora and cities rendered
- Constant LOD

Coming soon:

For the final 2.0 release within a few months:

- Full resolution 16k x 16k release with client patch utility to enable it. This is already done:



- Improved water - currently it just looks flat from directly above with the orthographic projection
- Bug fix for clipped Theed building

Coming soon™:

- Shadows and further improved lighting (this will take longer due to difficulties in how the map is constructed)
- Possibly some tweaks that will trade off 100% accuracy with making the maps a bit easier on the eye
- Fog - can't be done like in SWG but something should be possible

Install:

If you have the old maps installed, remove them from your texture override directory.

Move sytners_sat_maps_2.tre to your SWG directory and add it to swgemu_live.cfg, e.g:

Troubleshooting:

There is a known issue where some people experience the maps tiling. Hopefully we can route cause this, but some potential fixes are:

- Make sure you deleted the old maps!
- Force your client to use shader model 2.0 (they do work for me with 1.4 however).

P.S.: Will the ticket purchase windows be resized as well to match the satellite UI view?

It's amazing how natural the terrain feels when you're playing, and how unnatural it clearly is with a clear satellite image!

Oops, that's what happens when you only test stuff with an offline client. Fixed thanks <3

How about a browser version using the Google Maps API? Recording my browser really kills the performance but:



This augmented with server info could be pretty neat Smile.

By Default my live.cfg file says maxSearchPriority=31, do I alter this field to 26? Or add an additional shared file section with the maxSearchPriority?
