Will you still have time to put it all together? It's going to be fantastic, that's for sure.
Sure, its ready to shoot now; I've gotten good images out of it for a long time. Now I'm just going in and refining, adding detail, replacing old data with newer higher res stuff, repainting maps, etc.
Do you work with complete image maps, I mean 100% of the total area, or partial maps which you move into the right area? What resolution maps do you use?
It is a mix. The whole model is more than 12 km on a side, the area of interest (and thus higher detail) is about 1.2 km sq. Lower res maps for the distance, higher res stuff up close. The road displacement and shader masks for example use 4 quads at 8192px sq. each to cover the AOI, so that's 16384px x 16384 px.
