All looking good, torrents are up and running.

Perfect, as the number of seeders goes up I will gradually reduce my allowed upload rate (it's more or less at maximum right now).

Why not bundle all of them together in a single torrent?

I think some people might have Norder3 and Norder5 from the dropbox at the beginning of the thread, and many won't want Norder6 and Norder7 because they are too much data for their needs. So I thought Norder1-4 (it's small enough anyway), Norder 5 (bit bigger), Norder6 (large), Norder7 (very large).

I don't think we can selectively choose which parts of a torrent we can choose to download? Correct me if I've made a mistake. Perhaps you can, and I can just create a torrent to my /usr/share/kstars/HIPS and people can choose what files to get?

We can selectively skip and give priority to files within a torrent.
I'm going to grab nordrer 1-4 and see if it's possible to reduce the image data with indexed colours. Report back later.

Edit: Nope, can't use indexed colours.

Good point, probably 1-5 is enough for most people out there. Doesn't 6 and 7 causes KStars to freeze?

It's not freezing on my system, but I'll compare resource usage this weekend, I've only tested on my desktop, which has 64GB ram, might make less resourceful systems start swapping I suppose.

If I am not mistaken, this is possible: if for example you create a folder HIPS and then subfolders Norder1, Norder2 etc, then the user can select those subfolders individually through the torrent client.

But to be honest, I do not think that there is any need to do that now, it works greats just like you 've done it (thank you for that again!)

The whole point now is the seeding :-)

I found the following Table online in this document (page 11): www.ivoa.net/documents/HiPS/20170406/PR-HIPS-1.0-20170406.pdf
First item is the Norder, second is the number of files (or tiles), third item is the angular size of each tile, fourth item is the angular size of each pixel in each tile.
So for example, if you are wishing to use the HiPS for framing, this tells you that Norder5 provides you with 12.88 arc seconds per pixel, which each tile being 1.832 degrees across.
Norder7 has each tile 27.48 arc minutes across, with a pixel size of 3.221 arc seconds.

FYI, Norder8 would be around 78GB in size, with a pixel size of 1.61 arc seconds (it appears to halve as you raise the HiPS order by 1)

0 12 58.63° 6.871'
1 48 29.32° 3.435'
2 192 14.66° 1.718'
3 768 7.329° 51.53”
4 3072 3.665° 25.77”
5 12288 1.832° 12.88”
6 49152 54.97' 6.442”
7 196608 27.48' 3.221”

Having been out of torrents for a long time. What is the recommended client?

I dont want malware :) Windows preferred.

Also if i run Kstars on windows where do i put the files? everything i have seen is linux paths.

Thanks!
