Will there be support for 4x and 16x maps in FS 17? I've played around with a sample map a little bit but couldn't get anywhere with it by changing the unitPerPixel (which is default 2 btw, needs to be set to 8 to get large enough to look like 16x). I've tried switching out the weight files and it only crashed GE. I tried using the fix from GE 6 and that didn't work (injecting the code in GE after I open the map) I looked at the shaders and couldn't seem to find the limitations that the shaders from FS15 had.

This is working for me atm using x4 map
change files in map01

_weight.png - 2048x2048

_density.png - 8192x8192

Layer.png - 8192x8192

map01_dem - 2049x2049

remember to change this too

pda_map_H.dds - 2048x2048

map01.xml - <ingameMap filename="pda_map_H.png" width="4096" height="4096" />

not sure if this is the right way but its workiing for me atm

That sure didn't work for me. Once I increase the size of the _dem file GE starts crashing.

Hi David :) Are you using GE 7.0.2?

ge 7 wont run a 16x map in editor it crashes. you guys had it fix for 15 but broke it again in 17

Thanks Persen, that method seems to work pretty good :)

Can I confirm this works in the latest GE? I have a 16x map but get to the edges and they disappear.
