FreeMesh X Global 1.0 - Release Announcement

Recommended Posts

This is incredibly good, of course especially in all the areas where the stock FSX mesh is of poor quality.

 

Kudos for releasing this like it should be done, as a finished global product, you guys rock.

Hope this solve your problem

 

Thank you.

 

This is actually what I have been doing but clicking the white box does not, for some reason, clear the folder so I have to cancel it. However, then clicking OK within FSX does now re-build the database....so I am assuming all is well.

Thank you for this excellent contribution.  I'll make sure to keep seeding for others to get.

Let's see.

 

Europe contains parts of northern Turkey.

 

Africa contains some parts that share the Red Sea.

 

Asia really contains the bulk of the Middle East.

 

So if you had to choose one, I would go with the Asia package to get most of the Middle East.

Thanks so much for helping out the community - great job - question fsgenesis is pretty much LOD10 all ready I probably wouldn't notice any difference correct ? - I have their latest highest LOD products - thank you

 

Does North America cover Canada ? Alaska ?

Thanks Richard. Um, I'm not really familiar with FS Genesis products all that much except for their global mesh which is LOD9. They do have a lot of regional meshes that are higher LOD, so yes, you wouldn't see improvement with this LOD10 mesh.

 

North America covers Canada and Greenland, and I think parts of Alaska if I can remember (it's been a month or two). Stock FSX/P3D mesh is already LOD10 for all of the USA, so a future expansion will be a LOD11 USA product with perhaps some LOD12 dabbled in. Or maybe all LOD12. IDK. It could get pretty damn big if its LOD12.

Fantastic, going to get all but testing one out first!

So this will make North American better but isn't it the same resolution as default American? Sorry I don't understand, I don't know anything about mesh. Will I see a difference in Canada/USA with this over Default?

WOW! You guys are the bomb! What a project, and what dedication to the sim community! I'm not at home right now, but will probably start downloading this stuff as soon as I can get behind my keyboard. I have a spare computer that I may be able to use for seeding (my machines never get shut down - they're always on-line) - I'm not a bit torrent guy, but I'll definitely get on board to help out. There is a lot of freeware out there, but this makes it pale by comparison.

 

Again, way to go! I'm sure that you're gonna get contributions even though you aren't asking for any. This is "paying it forward" to the max!

A mesh is simply the 3D model for the terrain. Think of it as a wireframe where the scenery, textures, autogen are laid upon. The higher LOD mesh, the higher the fidelity of the terrain, and the better the hills and mountains appear.

 

Stock USA is already LOD10, so it isn't included in the 1.0 release. North America therefore includes an upgraded Canada and Greenland.

Thanks for the kind words! There are some HTML links provided on page 3 or 4. If only I could edit the original post to show that on the first page!

I've just put it near the front of the scenery library before the rest of my addons. It's up to you where you would like to put it. If you have other meshes you'll like to get prioritized, then put them ahead of FreeMeshX.

Wow! I own FS Global Ultimate, and thought there wouldn't be much difference, but I downloaded Australia just for giggles anyway, and did a few comparisons. Result: quite noticeable improvement in some steep valley areas (eg. Blue Mountains) and in areas with hilly outcrops (eg. Glasshouse Mountains). Excellent ... great work! Thank you!

Just to reiterate that there are direct downloads now available. I can't edit the OP anymore, so I'll just repost them here again.

 

Conventional HTTP links for those who can't torrent -- Requires 7-ZIP -- 4.38 GB max size per link

Always extract the .001 or .7z file. The rest of the parts will automatically extract afterwards into one folder. Preference is torrenting, so please torrent if you can!

Europe looks great with the new mesh! Previously I only had mesh for the Swiss/Austrian alps but now the whole region looks a lot better defined than before, really good job!

Oh wow,

thank you so much!

I was looking for a freeware global mesh for quite some time.

Looking forward to the future expansions.

I think that FS Genesis doesn't have any entry in the scenery library, that's the problem.

 

The FSGenesis uninstallers are in \FSX\FSGDocs\

Yep, I uninstalled FSG via add/remove programs, no fuss, lol. Did some comparison shots and yes, as I predicted, FreeMesh X is MUCH better all around, except Alps as expected.

I spent a bit of time flying around various parts of the world with no other mesh but FreemeshX. It's really really good.

 

Not to mention the spirit of FS community at its finest.

I'm a believer! :smile:
