UHD Mesh Scenery v1 - new regions RELEASED!

Recommended Posts

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 B) )
  • Scandinavia (Norway, Sweden)
  • Pyrenees in Europe

They 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, that the new regions are based on newer Openstreetmap data (from around end of April 2015).

 

Important: Because of this, the "UHD Mesh Scenery v1" Scenery is very heavy on hardware resources and will only run smoothly on modern, higher end PCs. Its very important - before even considering a download - to have at least 16 GBytes of RAM and a modern / powerful GPU! Especially when activating the new, "extended DSF" feature in X-Pane 10.40, the RAM requirement might double!

 

The complete coverage is now:

All informations, possible updates, installation instructions, and download links can be found here (IMPORTANT: you do not need to re-donwload old UHD files, as they have not been changed / updated!):

A lot of NEW screenshots can be seen here:

PS: I would like to ask all users, who are fluent in other languages than English or German (and have time), to please spread this news in other forums / new sites

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!

Great; Andreas! Thanks so much! Downloading Canada and Washington as I type.

 

One question: Will there be any conflicts with the Inside Passage Package, the Final Frontier or the Canadian Rockies Package?

I can't tell for sure as I do not have any of those packages ... But depending on how much it relies on the existing mesh (with absolute positioning of objects) its definitely not unlikely, that some places might look odd.

Thanks, Andreas. I will report any findings to the developer of those packages as it would be up to him to fix that, right? No legal obligation though but it would be great service from his side.

Yes, he could adapt ... but I am not sure if he is willing or able to do so. Because creating/maintaining/supporting many versions of the same product (as far as i know, he already - kind of - "supports" HD Mesh Scenery v3) is very tedious ... and i do not know if there is a "big enough" user abse for UHD + his scenery to justify this "investment".
