HD Mesh V3

Recommended Posts

Hello All!,

 

I recently got into x-plane (so i could fly the ixeg 737 :P) and I've downloaded HD mesh v3 and UHD mesh v1 to spruce up the scenery a bit and I've installed it. I was curious if you can just replace the default global scenery files with it? rather than having both taking up loads of HDD space.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Cheers,

Joe

Yes you can. I do it to save space. Just be aware that the X-Plane updater will overwrite them if they are patched in a new update

Nice to have others around here answering these questions (I was by far not fast enough to jump in myself :) ).

But yes, Tonys answer is absolutely correct : "you can, but have to be aware of some possible pitfalls".

Isn't that much simpler to uninstall the default scenery and leave UHD and HD meshes in the Custom Scenery folder where it belongs ? It won't be overwritten by the updater this way.

Yep of course, that would also work and is better. I originally did this so G2XPL would pick up the HD Mesh tiles and not the default scenery

Can someone be kind enough to provide more specifics on how you would go about replacing default scenery with HD mesh?

 

I'm also interested in saving some SSD space.

 

thanks in advance.

Just install HD mesh into your custom scenery folder as normal, and then run the installer to remove the global scenery for the same area 

 

e.g If you install the US, download HD Mesh and once you have it installed, run the X-Plane installer and deselect the US and it will remove it, and use the HD mesh only in your custom scenery.

You can run X-Plane regardless... even if you have zero scenery installed. It'll just load up into a very large ocean. :wink:
