SRTM Mesh?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm wanting to install flyawaysimulations' BC Floatplane Bases FSX addon. Mostly because I'm a big fan of seaplanes and bush piloting and the default terrain in my FSX installation for coastal BC is nothing short of terrible. The BC Floatplane Bases addon requires Flight1 Software's Ultimate Terrain FSX Canada to be installed, which I'll be purchasing next week. The Readme file however, also states that a SRTM mesh must be installed. I currently have FS Global 2010 installed as my addon mesh, so I'm wondering if anyone here knows if it satisfies the requirement for a SRTM mesh?

Any clarification on that would be much appreciated.

FS Global 2010 does use SRTM but an older release of the data. It's probably fine.

You can also search for FreeMeshX, a free product that is based on a new release of SRTM data.

Many thanks for the reply. Wow that I can install FreeMeshX without it interfering with my FS Global 2010 mesh - I'm all over that. Going ahead with the Ultimate Terrain Canada purchase; free space on my HD is going to be shrinking fast.  :)
