Well that caught my attention. This is from Sim Heaven Dublin Yes? Just of the Howth Coast? Looks really great. Combine with HD Mesh V 3, it's crackin.

 

No Simheavens is at ZL17 at best. ZL18 is as good as it gets for Ireland, that's as high a resolution as you can get from the satellite imagery and it covers the whole country perfectly colour matched. If you have a look at Bing maps and zoom in to the point just before the image starts to pixelate, that's what you get in sim. Takes up a lot of drivespace (4 times as much as 17) but definitely worth it. You can make out the details, for instance when coming into land you can still see the rows of cut grass around the airfield as you touch down. I used G2XPL to make it but it's pretty easy tbh. You just feed in the coordinates for each tile and the rest is automagic.

Best "clean / natural looking" sim shots I've seen on any sim.

HD mesh v3 has taken XPX to new scenery heights visually.

Amazing shots! I assume World2XPlane was used aswell, really makes Ireland look as beautiful as it does in real life.
