Application must download map tiles provided online by ESRI. Without internet connection you have only ugly black background without map.


Thanks for the explanation. I now understand it.

I wonder if your mod could use RAF_Louverts WOFF maps instead of the ESRI. This is not a criticism Sir. You probably have a good reason why you chose to use ESRI and I suspect it has something to do with GPS data. I just thought it would be nice to have the actual RAF-Louvert WOFF maps as the mapping layer because the content is more historical and very close to what we see in game, but it is no big issue.

Best Regards;

That was my first intention to use RAF_Louverts maps. However, as you correctly pointed, there was a real problem with conversion of latitude and longitude coordinates. So, instead I have voted compromise and selected existing free UnfoldingMaps library for Java based on online map tiles. This library enables handling of markers, waypoints and coordinates rather comfortable. However, I am still thinking about how to convert the editor easily to support Lou's maps.
