How does this product coincide with FTX Global and North American Landclass? I see FTX Global Mesh is used by the beta team for FTX? Can someone please help explain the difference between the two? Thanks!

HI Justin

 

FTX Global and NorthAmerica landclass basically tells the sim what land-use type to display, whether forests, farmland, swamps, golf courses, suburban sprawl or dense urban classes, to name a few.

 

Terrain mesh is shape of the ground over which those landclasses are draped.

 

Landclass such as FTX Global, NA LC, and such, will work with any terrain mesh, the more detailed the better.  That said, some landclasses are dependent on slope, like whether to display a rock face on steeper slopes, so using a high-resolution, highly-detailed terrain mesh can change, often improve the display.

 

Also recommended when using higher-resolution terrain mesh, is using a good 3rd party Vector product such as FTX Global Vector or Ultimate Terrain to improve the shape and accuracy of coasts and shorelines, as well as inland hydrography.  The default vectors are notoriously inaccurate and low-resolution which can impinge on the proper display of high-res terrain mesh.

 

Hope this helps
