MegeScenery Earth covers Nevada

121308_ii_1695We’re all fellow pilots here, right? So which is the most important city in Nevada – Sin City, or Reno?

Obviously, most people know Nevada because of Las Vegas – the city of lights and brightly coloured poker chips – but we’re a different breed. To us, Nevada is home to the Reno Air Races, Nellis Air Force Base and yeah, okay, grudgingly, we’ll admit that Las Vegas has commercial airports as well.

Nevada, in total, is over 110,000 square miles and actually has 114 airports, including the famous ones. MegaScenery Earth‘s phototextures have a resolution of 50cm/pixel throughout the state – more about which can be found and the package purchased here.

MegaSceneryEarth would be mis-selling this if they were claiming its 50cm resolution (they aren’t, you are wrong in the description above), the source imagery that the scenery is made from is 50cm per pixel, supposedly, the final product isn’t though its only 1.2metres per pixel i.e. half the resolution of the source. I know because I mistakenly bought California yesterday directly from them thinking it was higher resolution than this, (they don’t actually state what the final resolution is on the product page, you have to go digging through various pages to find that tidbit of information, but its most… Read more »
