How can you tell if terrain mesh addon is working?

Recommended Posts

I have Anchorage X but its unclear if it comes with surrounding mountain mesh. I also have FSGenesis Alaska-Hawaii Terrain Mesh installed.

 

The mountains sure don't look very good to me. See pic.

 

Is there a way to turn it on and off to see if the mesh is working?

I'm using .exe FSGenesis mesh, so there is no Scenery Library item to uncheck. :(

 

I could uninstall and reinstall but that seems like asking for issues to me.

In the older version, and perhaps current, FSGenesis installed into the individual numbered scenery folders. 

 

I manually moved the files from their installed location to a FSG folder, which I placed into the scenery folder and added to the FSX scenery library.

 

It made it a lot easier to enable/disable the mesh when I had issues or questions.

That is a good idea. I've installed about 20 .exe type FSGenesis mesh installers. Problem now is trying to figure out which one is what region. I see the various FSG files inside scenery/world with endings of like 0001 or 2001 but have no clue which is for where in the FSX world?

Anchorage X doesn't cover the mountain area and doesn't include mesh. The default mesh for most of Alaska was compiled at 38m. The FSGenesis Alaska/Hawaii mesh is also compiled at 38m for Alaska. There's no way to tell which is which from a screenshot and if what you see is, in fact, either of the two 38m compiles I doubt there is anyway to tell visually at all.
