  1. UPDATED 18.07.2018 A master list of the best Ortho4XP sources for each country THIS LIST IS COMPLETELY DEPENDENT ON YOUR FEEDBACK THIS IS NOT A SUPPORT THREAD FOR ORTHO - PLEAS ONLY GIVE FEEDBACK ON COVERAGE AND READ THIS INTRO BEFORE COMMENTING Some notifications There may be several listings for each country and not every country will have full coverage per source and combinations may be needed. Some sources need editing of the carnet_d_adress.py file in ortho or other modifications to work. See the bottom of this list for how to get the sources you won't find in the source list of ortho. WARNING: Do NOT use these for airport creation or in any way distribute the downloaded tiles in any way. Even when making freeware or sharing them for no charge. Doing so may violate the source providers terms of use. These are meant to be for personal use ONLY. As of why this is get approval of usage, consult the source provider in question. There is a list at the bottom of this page with an (somewhat limited) explanation for each source. For a short "how to guide" for Ortho and other x-plane related questions see the BEGINNERS GUIDE Daikan from x-plane.org has some great advice: Just a remark: Before embarking on the creation of orthophoto scenery for large areas (and potentially wasting a lot of time, bandwidth and disk space in the process) it is highly suggested to go check out the imagery online interactively before doing so. Arc: https://server.arcgisonline.com/arcgis/rest/services/World_Imagery/MapServer?f=jsapi GO2: https://maps.google.com Bing: https://www.bing.com/maps/aerial etc. (see carnet_d_adresses.py for more URL's) Sampling different areas at your desired zoom level(s) should give you a good idea of the overall quality pretty quickly. First lesson with Ortho4XP: Hold off from downloading terabytes of data at once before you haven't done some sampling - either through the provider's website or using the custom zoomlevel function... About this list: . Explenation of list parameters: I follow an approximate satisfaction rate in percent (higher is better on all): Clouds: 0-100% -there might be clouds in the ortho images. Example: 100%= NO clouds -95% Some clouds here and there but not interfering much with immersion. Color match: 0-100% -the color matching between and within areas of tiles. Example: 100% NO difference at all between tiles or patches within tiles. 60%=big differences between tiles and some severe patches. ZL coverage: 15-19 -Many sources may have less covered tiles in higher zoom levels resulting in black or white squares in the landscape (this parameter is mostly for what the info provider has tested) When giving info - please do so in this format: Country [short name of the source] Clouds: 100% Color Match: 95% ZL: all 15-17=100% 18-19=85% All the parameters are made with the thought of having 100% as the most positive. That is why cloud coverage might seem somewhat counter intuitive. See it as 100% gone The sources with N/A on them are not tested and I have no info on them, but they are sorted under the country they belong. So feel free to test and give feedback Check out ZonePhoto! It has good quality and covers most of Europe and some other areas (All ZL 16) So, let the list begin A Australia AU_1 Clouds: N/A ColorMatch: N/A ZL: N/A BI Clouds: 95% Color match: 95% ZL: tested 16-19 99% Austria OST Clouds: N/A ColorMatch: N/A ZL: N/A GO2 Clouds: 90% Color match: 75% ZL: tested 16-19 100% B Belgium BE_Wa Clouds: N/A ColorMatch: N/A ZL: N/A BI Clouds: 90% ColorMatch: 100% ZL: 15-19 = 100% C Canada Arc NW Territories loc: Yellowknife (CYZF) Clouds: 100% Color Match: 100% ZL: 17 = 100% (no other ZLs tested, but ZL17 looked terrific at high and low altitudes - I do not recommend to try a higher ZL due to diminishing returns, increased size and time to convert orthos) China (regions tested: west of Shanghai/ZSPD to Nyingchi Mainling/ZUNZ) Arc Clouds: 95% Color Match: 95% ZL: 17 = 100% (no other ZLs tested, but ZL17 looked terrific at high and low altitudes - I do not recommend to try a higher ZL due to diminishing returns, increased size and time to convert orthos) Croatia CRO Clouds: N/A ColorMatch: N/A ZL: N/A Czech Republic CZ (Mapy.cz) Clouds: 100% (But has watermarks) ColorMatch: 100% ZL 100% BI Clouds: 97% ColorMatch: 100% ZL: 16-19 = 100% Chile BI Clouds: 100% ColorMatch: 100% ZL: 17 D Denmark DN Clouds: N/A ColorMatch: N/A ZL: N/A BI Clouds: 100% ColorMatch: 95% ZL: 15-17 = 100% Domonican Republic BI Clouds: N/A ColorMatch: N/A ZL: N/A (No data - but has been said to give satisfynig results) E Estonia EST Clouds: N/A ColorMatch: N/A ZL: N/A England BI Clouds 100% Colormatch ~97% ZL: ZL16 F Faroe Islands FO Clouds: N/A ColorMatch: N/A ZL: N/A France BI Clouds: 99% Color Match: 90% ZL: 16 to 19 = 100% FR Clouds: N/A ColorMatch: N/A ZL: 17 FR_sat / FR_sat2 / FR_satP / Top25 Clouds: N/A ColorMatch: N/A ZL: 17 / 17 / 18 /16 F44 (La Loire atlantique vue du ciel - this specific area around Nantes, France: http://vuduciel.loire-atlantique.fr/#11/47.3435/-1.6788) Clouds: 100% ColorMatch: 100% (within the area - not sure about adjunct tiles) ZL: 15-19 = 100% G Germany BI Clouds: 98% Color Match: 95% ZL: all 16-19 = 100% DE Clouds: N/A Color Match: N/A ZL: all 16-19 = N/A (Scroll near the end of this post for how to get this working) Greece BI Clouds: 95% Color Match: 90% ZL: 17 = 100% H I Iceland BI Clouds: 95% Color Match:95% ZL: 16-17 = 100% India Northern India (Himalayas, NE India, West and east India) BI Clouds: 70-80% Color Match: 90-100% ZL 16-19 100% GO/GO2 Coluds-50-60% Color Match: 70% ZL 16-19 80% Southern India (Peninsular Plateau and Islands) GO/GO2 Clouds 70% Color Match 90% ZL 16-19 90% Ireland BI Clouds: <1% Color Match: <95% ZL: 16 - 19 = 100% Italy IT Clouds: 90% Color match: 70% ZL: 16-19 100% BI Clouds: 95% Color Match: 95% ZL17: 100% ARC Clouds: 99% Color Match: 98% ZL17: 100% J Japan JP Clouds: 90% ColorMatch: 100% ZL: 17/ 18 K L Luxemburg BI Clouds: 100% Color Match: 100% ZL: 16-19 100% M Mexico BI Clouds: 95% Color match: 99% ZL 16 100%.

Might be worth testing: EOX Clouds: 100% Color Match: 99% ZL: 0-14=100% Requires the following changes to Carnet_d_adresses.py: https://github.com/d41k4n/Ortho4XP/commit/caac8e369bc90acb999c6ea7fdbcdd141326858a Alternatively you can download the modified Carnet_d_adresses.py DE You will need to go "fish" for the session cookie and replace the value in line 338 of Carnet_d_adresses.py. You can do that by opening the network tab of your browser debugger (i.e. press "CTRL+Shift+E" in Firefox) and got to this URL. Then select any request and look for the "Cookie" header. Copy&Paste the value into Carnet_d_adresses.py as mentioned above.

You can also download the whole file which contains some other fixes from my GitHub repo here: https://github.com/d41k4n/Ortho4XP/raw/dbaa04b8c4f15e1fc144d3ea3411ee300ea9af32/Carnet_d_adresses.py Credit: Daikan from x-plane.org OP disclaimer: My changes available on Github are still a work in progress and might not always work as they're only marginally tested, especially when used out of context (i.e. without cloning the repository and syncing to a branch) NO Download the edited ortho version here: https://github.com/d41k4n/Ortho4XP/tree/hacks/norway-source and copy only "carnet_d_adresses.py" and "Ortho4xp.py" to your ortho4xp folder.
