The forum is in reduced operation. The Addon and Support forums remain open.
Please note that OMSI is no longer under development. Some of the developers are now working on a new simulator. Further information concerning the LOTUS-Simulator can be found here.

    I'll raise the stakes on this question:
    What URL/whatever do I have to put under [Editor_LinkAerial] in options.cfg in order for the M.E. to recognise it and download the imagery? I've tried three different Google Maps links known publically enough, although there is another website that I know I would like to use if possible. The region is Southern Masovia in Poland, if it helps.

  • In the German branch of a forum I found the following links:…&y=~y&z=~z&service=google for google for Bing

    To make this function work, you need to create a folder "aerials" in MAPS folder of OMSI. In folder "aerials" you need to create a folder with name @folder name of the map for which you want to download aerials@. For еxample: OMSI2/maps/aerials/Grundorf

    It's works fine with Bing for me. But with Google I have some problems. First, jpeg-fehler#53 error if i want to download with a resolution different from 256px. But it is not critical. Second problem, that all images are shiftted to south-east relative to the relief (SRTM) and Bing images. With Bing Aerial i don't have such problems. But for this time Bing have too bad imagery of my city (Volgograd).
    Sorry for bad English.

  • Yeah, my script currently only supports the 256px resolution for google. Not sure if the other resolutions would work in connection with google.
    I also don't know why the google images are offset. Might have to do with the conversion i'm currently using.

    Also another Service working is OpenStreetmap:


    Also if you know of other services i'll gladly take a look at them and if necessary include them in my script.

    Maybe YandexMaps. They have their own aerials, but mainly the CIS.
