    第一次:安装Python(https://www.python.org/ftp/python/3.9.7/python-3.9.7-amd64.exe),全部使用默认配置
    管理员权限运行run.bat启动程序,设置好proxy并测试代理,确保代理正常使用。
    启动模拟飞行,保留命令行的黑窗口
    保证游戏中在线地图功能打开(BING DATA WORLD GRAPHICS和PHOTOGRAMMETRY),否则只能获得离线地图

    ------------ English -----------------
    I had to remove embedded python because git has issue when download the source tar ball, some files changed after download.

    To run:

    Download the package and unzip it
    First time: install Python3 using default settings: https://www.python.org/ftp/python/3.9.7/python-3.9.7-amd64.exe
    Run run.bat in administrator mode to start the app, change the proxy setting
    Start flight simulation
    Make sure you have "BING DATA WORLD GRAPHICS.." and "PHOTOGRAMMETRY" turn ON in game, otherwise you will get offline map
    Enjoy

Excellent. 5STAR

Worked easily with no problems. Thanks.

By the way, this version is 1.5.0.

Version 2.0.3 is MSFS2020-GOOGLE-MAP-1.5.0 is the latest version and 2.0.3 is

correct in assuming that you have separated the python?

Hi!

Please help me 😊

  • I've installed python 3.9.7.exe from the recommended link.
  • I've unzipped the mod to the desktop.
  • I've opened run.batch by double clicking
  • I've then opened run.bat by double clicking but it closes automatically
  • I've then opened run.bat in the cmd
  • I've then opened FS.

----------------------------

  • I don't have a VPN.
  • FS is updated to newest version.
  • Rolling cache is cleared, set to 100gb.
  • Bandwidth FS usage set to unlimited.
  • No local cache created by me.
  • I have a fast net.
  • I am in UK. I don't use a proxy.
  • I have totally disabled UAC
  • I first open the server.py double clicking on it then start FS.
When I delete last two lines from system32/drivers/etc then I can use bing maps and it works without problems on bing maps online. But I don't want bing maps.

----------------------------

1.When I double click the run.bat file, it closes the opened window after few seconds.

----------------------------

2. When I open the cmd, then open the run.bat via cmd, here is what I get:

C:\Users\m>python3 C:\Users\m\Desktop\msfs2020-google-map-1.5.0\server.py

'python3' is not recognized as an internal or external command,

operable program or batch file.

C:\Users\m>

----------------------------

3. so I've opened the python3 installation folder in AppData/Local/Programs/Python, and duplicated the python.exe and then renamed it to python3.exe and now:

when I open the cmd, then open the run.bat via cmd, here is what I get:

C:\Users\m\Desktop\msfs2020-google-map-1.5.0\server.py:44: DeprecationWarning: please use dns.resolver.Resolver.resolve() instead

 origin_ips[d] = dns_resolver.query(d)[0].to_text()

Adding certificate to root

'certutil' is not recognized as an internal or external command,

operable program or batch file.

Traceback (most recent call last):

  add_cert()

 File "C:\Users\m\Desktop\msfs2020-google-map-1.5.0\server.py", line 33, in add_cert

  subprocess.run(["certutil", "-addstore", "-f", "root",

 File "C:\Users\m\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python39\lib\subprocess.py", line 528, in run

  raise CalledProcessError(retcode, process.args,

subprocess.CalledProcessError: Command '['certutil', '-addstore', '-f', 'root', '.\\certs\\cert.crt']' returned non-zero exit status 1.

yep i did that...

the thing is that the first time i ran it the whole graphics seemed to change and i was like wow 😊 but then i changed the map replacement folder location it hasn't worked since then..could this be the issue?

my machine is offline now ...not booting so i can't check ...

How do i do run run.bat from a cmd window when i do it opens in the same window...not a new one so i can't check to see if it works 😊

I wanted to restore the old state but I didn't find those two lines in the hosts file

Start the sim first, when at main menu, tab out and start the mod server. thank me later.

hi all. Cdrbuck : what I did was flying without (with bing so) near home of mine (for example) and compare with another flight at the same place with the .bat launched. Eventually take a shot. You'll see easily the difference.

Great, great job RipPipPip, lot of thanks ! one moment I was thinking that there was a fps impact but after comparison in dev mode, I've noticed nothing significant (maybe more microstutters in fact)

While I can see the difference in your pictures and I think it's working in my sim, but it's difficult for me to tell if it's really working or not. Is there any simple way to check if the program is installed correctly, is working in the sim, and is really using Google maps?

Hint for everybody: If you have enabled the "Roling Cache". Please delete it an generatwe it again. Otherwise you will see old material from the cache!

I'm in Hong Kong, don't need a Google agent ( porxy )

I have downloaded version 2.03, but I still run it and the run is unsuccessful. Did I make a mistake?

Thank you very much for developing the tool—the experience is much better to fly with the Google Maps imagery over the default Bing Maps imagery!

I want to bring awareness to an issue with the falloff draw distance when using the tool. The program will only render streamed imagery up to a radius of 50 kilometres around the camera. Beyond this threshold, the simulator will not fetch online imagery neither from Google Maps nor Bing Maps, and defaults to using offline texture data.

This issue is more prevalent when cruising at altitudes typical for airliners (30,000 feet and above). Both Bing Data World Graphics and Photogrammetry options are already toggled on.

Here is an example showcasing the issue over western Nevada—note the abrupt and chunky transition from streamed imagery to automatically-generated textures: https://i.imgur.com/UJbRG1k.jpg

Other than that, I am looking forward to utilizing the tool further, especially during VFR flights!

I followed all the instructions but I don't see any changes in the sim.

The command window stays open, apparently it downloads the textures but I'm not sure it will, the mod cache file doesn't change size. When I try the offline mode if it changes the size.

Does the mod work with non-legal versions?

I am running it with no proxy and it states proxy is good, should this be working in msfs?

IMPORTANT Part 2 😊

I can confirm as well now that the solution IS working!

Long tile loading times and blurriness have gone, when I tuned ON my VPN and directed it to New York, USA!

CMD Debug Window shows now NO (timeout?) ERRORS, every tile loads as it should!

樓主,你好, 怎麼一按下,run.bat,畫面不到半秒就跳出win10桌面, 沒有改善到, 不知道是否我的問題,以前那個1.5VER還可以用,反而新版2.3版用不了

ITS SUPER COOL that its not wokring and NO BODY take the time to explain how to make this work THANK YOU SO MUCH its nice to see that is working ! and so nice to see al the coment that is not wokring and no body care to explain how the FU.. to make this work its not wokring there is an error and the end , teh step are not explain at all .... its not juste click run.bat and voila NO There must be someting else cuz again the only thing i read is run.bat noting else so PLEASE can someone explain how to FU.. to make this work !!!

installed python and ran bat as admin. the cmd prompt still opens and closes in a split second.

This is great now. Can have photogrammetry load AND google map tiles. The color is MUCH better than bing. Tokyo is no longer green!! Thank you!!

Hello and thank you very much for very this promising mod.

It works well, but the colours that I see from Google maps in the sim are very white-yellow.

Is there a way to apply color correction to get a better looking result?

Thank you very much

2.03版本

怎麼不行, 按下run.bat,閃退出win10桌面了
