"Size" of the World

Postby FL2070 » Wed Aug 31, 2016 8:26 pm

The total size of FSX:SE (which contains the entire earth of scenery) is around 21 gigabytes.
The size of TerraGIT's entire world is 250GB??

Why is this?

A full copy of terrasync's world without scm information approaches 85GB.

The terragit scenery carry history of several binaries and thus size is about 2ice as large.

The terrasync/terragit scenery is FGs 2.0 featuring a very detail polygon mesh for terrain and a rather complex and detailed CORINE land class set for all of Europe.

It makes beautiful landscape but it is not HD economic.

I could optimize terrgit one step further to approach 180 GB instead of 250. But holding with the hope scenery version 3.0 with LOD will become a reality, which can bring a significant reduction in terrain size
If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall
