FreeMesh X Global 1.0 - Release Announcement

Recommended Posts

What's unified lookup update ? :sad:

Sorry, maybe since english is not my native, I miss the point. Lookup is the word that escapes me the most. :)

But I'm far from being an expert in this field, I just... have it. ORBX I mean. Doesn't it self updates ? If so guess I have the latest. But anyway... I'm not sure the problem is in me, only you report this problem, I didn't see anyone else even one or two confirm they have ORBX too.

 

No worries! Sorry for the confusion!

 

ORBX released an update that changed the lclookup.bgl file a few months ago. I remember some people having issues with it initially that caused weird terrain issues. I may be affected by that update, so I was wondering if you had it updated it or if you were still running the older version that gave no problems.

 

It looks you like you are fully up to date though, so that problem seems to be only on my end. Now how I do fix it, I wonder?

One thing I didn't get it... So you telling that this is the FIRST time you noticed FreeMesh X Global fubared things up ?

Apart from, here and there, some small mistakes like wrong lakes or airport elevations. 

If that's so... then I feel quite strange. How did I alone stumble on something like this ? Am I much bigger explorer that I thought I was ?  :ph34r: 

Yes, I like to search for new places but never thought I'll cross with something ...like this.

 

An idea, perhaps, to open a separate thread about it and ask fellow flyers to jump in and help. They could go to that location and look how does it look for them, with of course info about their scenery for that area, eg do they have ORBX LC and/or some other. :Thinking:

Oh no, I remember Italy and the Balkans in the 1.0 release! That was quite fubar'd ;). But that was quickly patched up a few days later :)

 

I would say these tsunami waves are not caused by FreeMeshX because I'm getting them in P3D and FSX without my mesh enabled. This error is something I haven't encountered, and I suspect, but haven't verified, that this may be a corrupt file caused by an FTX Vectors update or by the ORBX lclookup.bgl update they issued a few months ago.

 

I think you are correct though. I think I will ask some of my "testers" (more like explorers -- like you) to report what they see in this area. Because if it is FreeMeshX related, then I need to get to the bottom of it.

I tried to match up my shot as good as possible with gamer19's.

 

This is from P3D, only add-ons used are FreeMeshX and ORBX Global Base (no ORBX Vector/LC!):

No lake! It looks about the same in FSX with the same add-ons.

Thanks Penz. Makes me feel better that others aren't getting the tsunami waves, and it's just me. I may have to do a full Vector reinstall. Something got corrupted.


As I suspected it, was the corruped unified lclookup. So I forced a remigration of it in FTX Central,

And no more tsunami waves!

I can now see what you mean about the giant swimming pool.

 

 

With FMX enabled,

Without the mesh,

Lake does seem a bit too wide, and in FreeMeshX, the hill does seem removed nearly all together. I wonder I can correct this.

Well, that's great success indeed !  Glad you finally solve it Moser.

 

But amazingly swimming pool does looks better with vanilla version  :excl: :Hmmmph: 

Not by much but still... Now that was quite a surprise.

 

...I wonder I can correct this.

 

I bet we all do. :smile:

When I get home I will see what i can do with ADE and let you know.  Is there an airport near this location?

I'm afraid not.
It's quite remote area, there's not one even close.
But I believe you can find location thanks to my slew data on screenshot.

Good luck. emoji-additions-vogue-3_185333371499.jpg

And, while you're there... :rolleyes:
There's a few of those spikes a further north of swimming pool area. Here's the exact location:

Whoops! Didn't see your edit until now. Yep, those are typical artifacts! That's what I get for not flying through that area! On the bug list!

A converter? You only need the 7-ZIP program which is specified in the writeup. May I ask which program you used?

I've got a question. Been using FreemeshX in P3Dv3, and was goofing off flying up the Amazon River. It had the entire river in a pit. I had all my scenery settings maxed out, and I'm thinking this might have been the pit problem. If I recall correctly, think mesh was set at 1m. Should it have been 38m? I know the product wasn't made for P3D, but a lot of stuff works from FSX over there.

Good question scrubuck,

There could be a number of factors here at play, but I believe the major one is that you probably don't have updated vectors for the Amazon River. Updated vectors will adjust rivers, lakes, and ponds to align with the new mesh. Having a mesh is sort of half of the puzzle here -- with any mesh replacement you'll likely want some sort of vector solution as well e.g. FTX Vectors, and one of the reasons I highly recommend is that it plays VERY nicely with FreeMeshX. Unfortunately, that is a payware solution but I would argue it's worth it. If you do have FTX Vectors installed, then it might be a mesh resolution slider setting. I keep mine at 10 m or 5 m. Some weird effects can happen at the highest setting.

Hi Daniel,
   Have installed Antarctica and Oceania, presently uTorrenting down "Europe" :)
So far quite happy with first two. I'm hoping Scotland improves. I have Global, Vector, FTX England, and a fair bit of OzX and further FTX payware (North America). But not FTX Europe/Norway/etc, nor FTX Scotland/Wales/Ireland. PC is over 5 year's old. Asus P7P55D-e Pro i5 quad with 8gb ram and several HDs both internal & external. FSX is on an external via usb3 port. No SSD. Windows 7 Pro.
   Interesting your comment re FSX settings (oh I have FSX Accelerate). Mine are set too high I guess, as with online multisessioning with say five or six people I have both FSX & Plan-G taking turns (sort of) crashing. But multisession with a friend in Canada no problem (I'm Coffs Harbour NSW Australia). I have a river system and several minor PNG airstrips that either trench or plateau. A large river a hundred or so feet above the surrounding terrain is something to be reckoned with!. Using the FTX Central control panel to individually select how Vector addresses some Nepal locale airstrips helped those a little. So yes thankyou for that info.
   Thankyou for these Free-Mesh products and all the work put into them, they really do make the difference in several places. :)
