    I second that. The "cells" option rocks... now how about being able to download all the zoom levels at once, its a PITA to select each zoom level one at a time and to let it download.. :-)
    But i know how programming goes.. it can be a PITA when it wants to be... beggers cant be choosers.. and we do appreciate VERY MUCH what you have done so far.. its awesome. I took about 6 programming classes before i got tired of it.. glad you like it!

    HAHA yea you sound like the people I used to teach programming to, Iv also been programming for close to 8 years and have done everything from basic PC programs to websites like this one... anyways

    A soon as StreetDeck's development environment is working again I'm planning on finishing up the Fusion Brain DigiMod and then, provided I get the code, write one for this as well

    I think a great way to do this would be to have 4 boxes where you can enter 4 corner coordinates and where it would connect those 4 coordinates with straight lines, like a box around the area and then it would cache the entire area in that box at ALL zoom levels, or a range of zoom levels the user specifies. And another thing that would be great is if we could specify a default folder to store the cache in, that way we don't have to choose the folder every time we choose Download. If you could write the code for that, i think thats all the program would need to be pretty perfect!

    Also, i keep getting this error message often, but if i hit ok, then it continues on its marry way. I don't know if its a glitch in the math in the program or if its just tiles that cant be downloaded because they have no data, but you might want to look into it.. if its just tiles with no data, then could ya make it where it automatically skips them instead of popping up all the time and having to click ok a lot? It seems to do it more the farther i zoom out.


    Hopefully I am not bothering you, I am just trying to give ya some feedback to work with :-)

    I am pretty sure it works for Europe and anywhere on earth, you just have to get your coordinates.. doesn't it?

    You are not bothering me

    You are not bothering me. I just have very limitted amount of time so I am implementing what I believe will give you guys biggest bang for the buck type of thing. I almost finished "downloading multiple zooms" yesterday but alas, I fell asleep .

    As far as precaching a predefined region that's tricky, first of all because the earth is not flat, but there is math to fix that. The bigger problem is the space requirements. For example, say that at zoom 16 your region requires 16x16 = 256 cells. Let's say each cell is about 20Kb. That gives us a total of 5Mb, not bad. Now, take zoom 17 (same geo area) = 256*4=1024cells=20Mb. And if we continue:
    18 = 80Mb
    19 = 320Mb
    20 = 1.3Gb

    You can see this gets big quick!

    As far as source goes... I will have to clean it up and maybe then I will share it out - at this point I embarrassed to

    This should work fine for Europe you will just have to find your lat/long. And if you wish to precache all of UK then you better get one of those terrabyte drives! I believe it takes several hundred TB to store all VE world data!!!

    And finally, the exception/error message you are getting is probably because your internet connection is not very reliable or VE server is slow. I will take a look at making it a little friendlier with the error messages.
