scale of track in terrain.hf file

Postby WillHjal » Sat Jan 25, 2020 6:13 pm

hi! i'm trying to build my home track, smk värnamo. Ive gotten a overlay from google earth, and the overlay i used is 1500 feet x 1500 feet (measured in google earth)and im using 2049x2049 resolution, if thats to any help. I have messed around with the scale, but i dont really know the "formula" for a 1:1 scale. i dont really know what to do, and thats why i ask the forum for help, so yeah if maybe someone knows how to calculate the scale, please help me with it, and maybe somebody else needs help with it too.

Pretty sure it's explained in this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PxbpQz8_q5k
Also, 1:1 scale doesn't generally work well for sim so you might want to adjust it.

You want 1500/2049. So 0.732.
