la versione precedente mi caricava le immagini solo intorno all'aereo ed era diventata inutilizzabile, ora mi crea dei quadratini colorati su tutte le montagne e mi fa crash il simulatore. peccato era una bellissima mod.

Could you please remove donation popup for for those who have payed for a licenced version? Thanks!

Why so many updates? It was working beautifully 30 versions ago.

If I start it from the Task Scheduler, the Map servers do not appear (as an admin, of course) - everything is OK by running the exe directly. What could be the problem?

I'm a first-time user and every now and then I skip an update. Until now (V5) I was able to automatically start the Map Enhancement addon with Addons Linker without any error message. Now with version 6 I get the error message "Game is runnin, ........

Unfortunately, we can't set a link in your addon itself that you can use to start Addons Linker...

Am I now forced to always go the awkward way of loading the Map Enhancement addon first and then the Addons linker separately?

苹果地图用不了,挂了VPN,但提示【Error: The request was canceled due to the configured HttpClient.Timeout of 5 seconds elapsing.】。谷歌地图和中国定制超清地图都没有问题,版本是6.1.7。

Anyone else crashing with Update 10?

I must say the last version (6.16) is again super unstable. I don't think is wise to push updates that just ruin the experience. And all goes back to the cache feature that is clearly its Achilles heel.

I would like to see an option to activate deactivate new features that are introduced by new version where is possible and also the ability to use more than one cache file at one time would be very useful. Saving a good cache to be left untouched by bad writes would save a lot of headaches.

For example if the program crashes gigabytes worth of cache file are compromised as the cache instantly becomes corrupt and blocks the program from passing the textures to MSFS. Effectively the program continues to download files and shows the thumbnails changing but it says "data used = zero" while MSFS switches to default offline textures.

Also a way to repair databases would be great.

Thank you.


One more thing. I don't know if possible but you should disable the default "send data home" this feature especially after so many viruses report I am not sure is left enabled by anyone and also if it truly not sending back data when OFF. You should simple make the app build a report in text format as much as possible... a log and then ask the user for permission to send that file.

These days allowing buggy software to "phone home" is really a bad idea and it will slowly wear the trust in your app especially since last versions went from bad to worse and you would like people to slowly move to "licensed" version.

Whe using any map coverage, for example bing maps or mapbox, the default vegetation appear uncovered (nude soil, just photogrammetry). Is there any way to use maps from this mod and also vegetation coverage?

Im loving the previous versions, but this one both here and on Github will not install "Error opening file for writing ...Autofsc.dll..."

it is listing 6.15 but is in the Github 6.16.exe and here on\ gone back to the previous version.

I am missing this!!!...Please fix is too COOL to NOT use!!!!

With the last 2 versions I encountered very long loading times in MSFS and also when going back to the main menu it takes forever. Developer mode on shows me just 6fps while trying to go back to the main menu. When your software is not running everything is fine. Any clue on this?

I'm on 6.1.6. On window resize, the drop down box for server stays a fixed size and at least in my case you can't tell which Google server is selected.

Not working well Mix of cartoon video game maps instead 6.1.6

With Apple maps I thought this was global. The URL's are for different areas. Do we have to install more than one URL?

After installing the last version of your software, when I open msfs without your software my default scenery is broken, can you tell me how to fix this> thank you

ignore it, it is fixed now after restarting msfs

6.1.5 does not work anymore. No tiling at all, cartoon video game maps instead. I have to play without now.

Hello! Great app, but in version 6.1.5 the Arcgis provider only loads tiles around the plane, which is not seen with other providers. Maybe you can fix it. Sincerely, Denis

Im not happy with 6.1.5 . Takes too long in load the images! Sometimes work normal but later dont load images again

Should you disable the msfs default photogrammetry?

So does anyone else have issues with this latest build? ever since 5.1 ive been having map issues in the sim where some tiles are darker than others almost if its using two different maps. Can anyone help?

Disse varer er i øjeblikket på listen og vil snart blive behandlet!
