For practice purpose I made an island. There are 198 tiles of 512x512 (they cover all island surface). Only surface tiles, and without water cut (I forgot to do this). Made from 19 to 15 levels. Not so good, but for the first time not so bad :)

I did Jarvis Island, the water map isn't that hard.

The hard part is smoothly blending the edges of the new tile into the existing ones.
I extracted the highest level standard tile for that area available, scaling it up, then cropping it to the area of the custom tiles.
Then blur the edges of the new tiles and add the scaled and cropped low-res tile as a new layer underneath the hi res tile.
Then, you have a high res tile that smoothly blends into the surrounding low-res tiles.

First images of the XB-70 Valkyrie that I am modeling. Since I still don't know how to program, I'm going to publish the mesh once it's ready and then when I learn to use the Orbiter API well, I'm going to make it fly. My idea is that it works on both Windows and Linux (Gondos XOrbiter).

Hmmm.... its engine is just a larger version of the B-58s J-79 engine and contrary to the B-58, lots of performance data from the development had been published:


There is even a sketch of the cockpit and the instrument panels are described.

Maybe I can give you some headstart with the programming, if you like. Shouldn't be hard to branch off the B-58 and turn it into a XB-70 about this weekend.
