Projection bug in EA 2.0?

Postby Polewka » Thu Dec 14, 2006 12:46 pm

Hi Mosquito

Would there be a chance that this bug will be corrected in the next patch? Has this something to do with the more accurate terrain detail?

For more details, look at this http://www.gliderracing.com/forum/defau ... osts&m=833

It looks like EasternAlps2.0 uses a non-standard terrain grid spacing (88 m x 110 m). All the other sceneries I've checked use a 90 m grid. I think Condor internally is using the 90 m grid for everything except computing lat and lon. That would explain why the lat - lon of the turnpoints puts them in the right places wrt to the mountains and why there are large discrepancies between internal Condor distances between two waypoints and the distance calculated externally by SeeYou between the same waypoints. :?:

Maybe this would explain why on ytday SHRL task were a huge discrepancy (20%) in the distange (radius) on tp1 (almost north of center of area) and almost no one on area 2 (almost east of area 2 TP). If the grid 88 lenght and 110 high, this would explain it. Or not... :roll: :?: :roll: :?: :roll:

Oh, how I wish scenery developers would go through the QA process before release. http://forum.condorsoaring.com/viewtopic.php?t=5158

i'm sorry OXO, but basically - i do not care abouzt Q&A, so please, keep such stupid comments inside your head....



René, thanks for this topic! This seems to be the reason for differing tasks lengths from Condor to Seeyou. I was already checking the calibration of the terrain for this, but didn't find any errors. As soon as i have the time for it, i will try to find a solution for this.

Wolfgang,

I do not think it is "stupid" to test and release high quality scenery for Condor. Of course you are entitled to your own opinion, but issuing personal insults will not serve you well.

I also noticed something strange with th EA v2.0.

I wanted better maps (like the ones in EA v1.0 colored relief and CU)
Like this one:Image
and tried to import them into the V2.0 directory.

The maps appear to be incompatible and entirely different shapes.

what is going on?

*edit*
uhhhh duhhhhh.
I think I found the answer
