Will mesh data be better in MSFS than Bing Maps?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

From what I understand, mesh data is the resolution of the peaks and valleys of Earth.  Has Asobo ever indicated that mesh data will be improved for MSFS?  An example of what i mean, is in this image of Rio de Janeiro, Bing Maps captures a general elevation of mountains, but ignored the high resolution elevation change for Sugar Loaf Mountain and instead shows it completely leveled off.

It shows this mountain correctly in the pre-release trailer, but Asobo likely hand-drew that.  But maybe it is indeed better automatic mesh data being used for this sim?

You are talking about mesh. The answer is probably no.

The Alps result terrible, very low mesh resolution, the same as FSX, although the autogen is largely improved.

Higher resolution meshes result in huge loading times because people still refuse to get rid of their HDD drives...
