Ortho Scenery – almost there

A quick update. I believe I’ve assembled my set that will make up a beta test. The package will use batch files to convert the images (thank you for that suggestion!) This will be some work to get it going unfortunately but the good news is that it reduces the size of the torrent file from 110GB+ to ~ 46GB. Because of this I’ll package the whole of the North Island as a single torrent, which will make it much easier to seed.


If you’d like to take part in testing this ortho set stay tuned. It won’t be perfect, but I might as well get it out there and see what’s broken.

If you have limited internet, time or want something more polished, stay away for now.

    • Cool, it’s zipping up now overnight. I have a batch file for each tile that will convert JPG to DDS pretty quick. It uses cuda cores on my graphics card so it’s about 20x faster than photoshop could save them! It’s a bit of a hassle, but much better than 110GB torrent. After decompressing users can delete the JPGs.

      Thanks for the suggestions!
