Thank you.
I'm using a paying hosting service, yes. It costs me around $90 a year, domain name included. That's not much. If the server gets crowded someday, I might add a "Donate" button to host the webmap on a better server.

I'll update the webmap very soon with a new ruler tool and the "donate" link.

In other news:

1/ I've found out one can easily replace the ingame kneeboard map tiles. I want to make a kneeboard mod out of my GeoTIFF map. It might take some time because I need to reproject my map in the exact same projection used in the original kneeboard map. I don't know yet if this mod will break the integrity check or not.

2/ Viktor_UHPK has asked me to add some stuff, like minimum off-route altitude (MOR) and navaids (lighthouses, TV masts...). If you want, you can help by listing ingame navaids in this sheet. And if you know an automatic way of listing those, please tell me.

Hi Flappie,
Love what you've done so far. Just wondering if you plan to add more zoom levels to the WMS map? For us rotor-heads it would be very nice to get more low level details. But I also know high zoom levels require a lot of storage space for the tiles.

Storage is not the issue. Quantum GIS 3 keeps crashing when I try to render a bigger map. I've been looking for a solution, but nothing so far. Let's hope QGIS will do better in a next build.

Ah, that's a bummer. I cross my fingers...

I've added a ruler to the webmap! (double-click to finish a measurement)
I'm now working my way to add the headings.

I will soon add radio beacons and MORAs.

Excellent ! This most useful feature allowed me to measure the way we drove yesterday during the Rallye des Ailés : 311km in the mountains, from Beslan to Kutaisi.


Merci Flappie for your outstanding work !


PS : I searched a bit but couldn't find a database with the navaids in the DCS files (although I found that all the cities are listed in Mods\terrains\Caucasus\Map\towns.lua, which I used in a script of my own ^^)

Funny rally event! I'm glad the new tool was put to good use so quickly.

Yes, I used the very same LUA file to display the town names on my map.

Coming soon: new data!
  • MEFs (Maximum Elevation Figures)
  • Landmarks (oil derricks, tv towers, comm towers, lighthouses...)
