When opening TB, it takes about 30s to load the maps.

Currently I do not use large file size (10,000 tiles per file) so that I can delete useless portions such as deserts or oceans. But perhaps this is counter-productive...

Is map loading duration related to map size, ie tiles per file? Which setting would reduce map loading duration?

30 sec is way too much. Does your map have tile index file (.set for unpacked map, .tmi for packed one)?

Yes all the .tmi files are there.

The directory structure looks inefficient:

E:\Maps\ovi\10\ovi 10 (004)\ovi 10(004).tar

(also .tmi).

So there is an atlas called ovi, zoom level 10, then what seems like a redundant directory ovi 10, in which the actual files are. I checked the directories, all contain only the two files given in the above example. Would it help if I put all the files directly in the zoom level directory?

OK please ignore this thread until I get back after more testing... it seems I got zoom mixed up with layers. Got it right now, and will repeat all tests. If I find anything after that, I will report back.
