  1. An introduction video showcasing X-Plane 10 UHD Mesh Scenery v1 in the Colorado Mountains. Scenery used (you can get it at www.alpilotx.net for free!): UHD Mesh Scenery v1 (Colorado Mountains) Tree lines and farms v2 (North America) Music from Jason Shaw (freemusicarchive.org) Nice And Easy Thingmajig Wheels One Fine Day Green Leaves
  2. As of today, the UHD Mesh Scenery v1 series has a new region: Japan The main differences (and improvements, compared to HD Mesh Scenery) are: High resolution DEM elevation data. Based on the AW3D (© JAXA) 30m data, and where AW3D has holes, filled up with SRTM 1sec (30m) data. Latest landclass data based on the "AVNIR-2 high-resolution land use land cover map 2016 February release (version 16.02)" (© JAXA) Massively increased mesh density ... by roughly factor 2.5 to 3! This is not only beneficiary to the better representation of the higher res DEM data, but also - once
  3. I already wanted to add that info: at least X-Plane version 10.25 is mandatory for either HD or UHD Mesh Scenery (that version delivered terrain types / textures for a few new landclass types which I introduced at that time)
  4. A new addition to the successful donationware HD Mesh Scenery v3 series has been release. This time, covering the rest of the American continent: Central AmericaSouth AmericaAll usual "parameters" of the already existing HD Mesh Scenery v3 apply to this scenery too. Special topics to be noted: This new region was primarily made possible by teh ESA CCI Landcover datathe South/Central America extension is based on latest (end of October 2015) OSM data4 already existing HD Mesh Scenery v3 ZIP files (+20-080, +20-090, +20-100, +20-110) have been updated as they overlap with this new region, and th
  5. Hi guys ... there is a simple reason (other than the - also very important - ones listed on my website!), why Finland (and any other flat region) will quite likely never have UHD coverage: because it is - relatively - flat ... and UHD coverage makes far less sense there than in mountainous regions.
  6. Which is - usually - the most common reason for problems like this (at least from all the support mails I receive, this is one of the most common "mistakes")
  7. IMPORTANT: at the moment, only two download mirrors are available (ISDG / Aerosoft) ... Flightsim.com (with torrents!!!) will come online in the (approximately) next 24 hours. So, maybe you should not download immediately everything at once and wait a little bit. Especially as flightsim.com will also offer the - usual - torrent seeds!
  8. Hi, After the first batch of UHD Mesh Scenery tiles released in February 2015, there is now a new set of additional regions to be enjoyed. They are: Northern Washington state (west of the already existing Montana UHD region)Canadian Rockies (between 49N and 55N ... from the Pacific to the plains around Calgary - quite a big area )Scandinavia (Norway, Sweden)Pyrenees in EuropeThey are all using - just like before - 30m / 1sec resolution data (either from Viewfinderpanoramas / NED or SRTM) and much higher resolution triangle mesh to be able to use all that detailed data. One "difference" is,
  9. Hi, Just wanted to "announce", that in the foreseeable future (coming weeks, as my time permits), a few additional UHD regions might come online: adding most of Northern Washington state (west of the already existing Montana UHD region)adding the Canadian Rockies (between 49N and 55N ... from the Pacific to the plains around Calgary - quite a big area )adding most of Scandinavia (Norway, Sweden) - I know, someone will be very happy about this adding Pyrenees in EuropeAnd here is a teaser of the Mount Rainier at UHD res (taken in 10.40b5)
  10. Yes, thats a "classic" problem when this "plateau" problem is observed.
  11. A new addition to the successful donationware HD Mesh Scenery v3 series has been release. This time, covering the top of the world, the Himalaya "region"! All usual "attributes" of the already existing HD Mesh Scenery v3 apply here too. Special topics to be noted: coverage is 6 "big tiles" (6.3 Gbytes), but not entire 10x10 degree areas. The covered area extends: from 70E to 100E, and 24N to 38N!data used comes from a GLCN project (and this also shows, which area has high res landclass data): http://www.glcn.org/databases/hima_landcover_en.jspthe Himalaya extension is based on latest (end of
  12. A more or less (or halfway, or barely, or what ever) official thread about mesh Remexe is over at the org ... It might possibly help you in the process of learning to use it (but to my understanding it is still - at best - a beta): http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?showtopic=81152&hl=
  13. After the successful release of "HD Mesh Scenery v3" last December, the new "UHD Mesh Scenery v1" tries to push the limits of the X-Plane 10 scenery engine even further. The general characteristics of "UHD Mesh Scenery v1" are identical to those described in HD Mesh Scenery v3. The main differences (and improvements) are: 30m resolution DEM elevation data instead of 90m DEM data.(once more) massively increased mesh density ... by roughly factor 2.5 to 3! This is not only beneficiary to the better representation of the higher res DEM data, but also - once more - improves landclass and forest
  14. Yes, of course UHD does this too ... although, even the largest triangles are still much smaller (maybe i can tune it there a bit, but don't expect miracles - neither do I want really big triangles because of the landclass representation). And with 16 GB ... well, you are on the low end, and will definitely find places with UHD where it will not be enough (thats why i warned about this). But at least you should be able to start up in a few nice locations ...
