FreeMeshX Global 2.0 - Release Announcement

Recommended Posts

Don't forget there is an extra step when installing fsx add-on scenery.  I will check GEML and GMMW when I complete my current flight.

Hello...

I am trying to install freemesh x Europe.

I downloaded it via torrent (just Europe and Patches folders), I activated the two folders (patches layer over Europe layer) and I don't know if that is correct. I can see some differencies but it is almost similar to what I see using default meshes,

I read about an installer .exe file but... where is it???

Hi folks,

Thanks for the community support. I really appreciate people stepping up to help others out. I stepped away from flight simulation for about half a year for a nice, healthy hiatus.

Eventually, I'll get around to release a patch to fix some remaining issues.

the reason I am asking is because the USA is so much larger then the global

 

The USA is probably more highly detailed than the Global.

FreeMeshX features LOD10 (38-m resolution) coverage for:

  • North America (LOD10 Canada is released in this mesh - default USA is already LOD10, so USA is not included for the base release. A separate LOD12 USA mesh is available for beta testing)

All explained in the opening post @dnz0427. AFAIK you layer mesh just like other scenery, so you can put two meshes with overlapping coverage and the one which is higher in the scenery library is the one you'll see in the overlap area.

I am misunderstanding something here , sorry ,  I understand the scenery lib, ,, what i don't understand is the lod and why usa was not included in the global mesh , i am guessing it is because of lod 10 not sure

thanks for your time and help

LOD = Resolution (Level of Detail)

LOD10 = 38m. LOD11 = 19m. LOD12 = 9m.

FreeMeshX Global is 38m, the same as default USA. So it does not include the USA as you would see no difference. The FreeMeshX USA is at LOD12 9m.

There are other threads for discussing mesh by other developers such as  https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/548100-best-terrain-mesh-for-p3d/?page=2 and https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/547654-interested-in-the-difference-3rd-party-mesh-makes-to-p3d/

Personally I don't see the point in paying for mesh unless you frequent a specific and very mountainous area very often where you can benefit from the additional LOD increase over FreeMeshX. The links you posted I can't find any LOD information nor information on the source data resolution so it is difficult to say from a few photos.
