Best Mesh for Europe photoreal scenery

Recommended Posts

I've been downloading lots of photoreal scenery from https://italyphotoreal.weebly.com/download.html

Does anyone know if this contains updated mesh, or is it just the photo textures?

If so, is there a better free mesh than the standard P3D mesh I could use for Europe to improve the 3D accuracy of the area?

Cheers.

Looking at their site's list of what it contains I would say no, it does not come with mesh.

My personal preference with photoreal has always been the FranceVFR 4.75m NEXTMesh. You can still get it on SimMarket. I can't vouch for compatibility though, it is officially only compatible up to P3D V2. I don't see any ill effects in P3D V4.5, but that doesn't mean anything. And of course it is not free, but for me it was worth it.

Here I have pr scenery + custom AG only for Europe and zo use Fs Global Ultimate NG 

The free EU pr scenery is a masterpiece, no doubt about it. However because of color differences I use payware and other free pr scenery ..

PR scenery + AG is the future. I am saying this for over 10 years now..

Nothing beats a scenery that looks like in real life..

Here is what good PR scenery looks like with the high resolution mesh mentioned above

https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/569403-photoreal-scenery-with-high-resolution-mesh/

Personally, I am not totally fond of photoreal all the time. "Nothing beats a scenery that looks like in real life" - unless it doesn't. We have four distinctly different seasons in my country, and PR scenery covers only one of them. That is not enough for me.

Looks good.

Any idea if there is a 4.5m or other Hi-rez mesh for other parts of Europe?

Regards,

FranceVFR covers pretty much all of western Europe with their products. Go to SimMarket and search for "next mesh"

Best regards

Thanks. Their name - FranceVFR - didn't help in understanding that they do other countries than France...

Oliver,

How do you fix the effects on most airports where the elevation is slightly affected by the better mesh?

I know that ADE can change the elevation and even flatten the area around the airport, but without a tutorial I've decided for now to disable any mesh in the freeware photo packages.

There are several products for this purpose. I usually stick to the one that came with the Pilot's mesh products (AFM) or ORBX Vector AEC. Most of the time one of the two does the job. In some cases a correction isn't possible, especially when the developers use tricks to create tunnels etc. Some airport products I find notoriously difficult to even set up correctly under normal conditions..

To be honest, I am not a perfectionist when it comes to airport elevation. I am probably just missing many of those "plateaus", because I can't see them from above and I never fly there. And when I do, I don't mind very much when they are not too high or obvious.

Best regards
