What is the default FS2004 LOD for North America...

Recommended Posts

I am looking at purchasing some mesh for North America. FSGenesis has some LOD7, LOD8, LOD9 and LOD10 products.I cannot really make up my mind until I know what the default mesh is sampled at.I am presuming the default is LOD5 but I am not sure....Thanks for helping out gents.

Check out this link for a description and graph (on the fsgenesis website)http://portal.fsgenesis.net/index.php?modu...y&ceid=6&meid=4This text is also directly from the FSGenesis website:"Terrain Mesh is the shape of the ground in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000/2002/2004. It is compiled by FSGenesis using real world data in the form of Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) from the United States Geological Survey (USGS).The default terrain mesh covering most of the world is 1223m horizontal resolution, that is, 1223m between elevation points. There are small areas of the Japan and the south Pacific, including Papua New Guinea, with 76.4m terrain. Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa is done in 76.4m.The default terrain mesh covering the United States is generally 611.5m horizontal resolution, that is, 611.5m between elevation points. Small areas of the western United States are done in 153.2m, as well as the entire Caribbean. The Grand Canyon, Hawaii, Mount Rainier, Yosemite, and Catalina Island are done in 76.4m.FSGenesis terrain mesh is compiled in three different horizontal resolutions, 76.4m, 38.2m, and 9.6m between elevation points using 90m, 30m and 10m source data, respectively. We currently have the entire western hemisphere covered in 76.4m terrain mesh.Additionally, the entire coterminous United States is covered in 38.2m terrain, and selected areas, including Monument Valley, Yellowstone & Grand Tetons, The Grand Canyon, and The Hawaiian islands covered in 9.6m terrain."Hope this helps,Glenn
