WU5 - Updated DEM in Sweden or not?

Recommended Posts

According the realese notes to the update it seems that Sweden didn't get any updated elevation data? I find that troubelsome if that's really the case and not just a typo. Has Asobo/MS failed with the negotiation with the www.lantmateriet.se who has really good data as I understand it?

 

  • Updated elevation data for Norway, Denmark, Finland and French oversea territories (La Réunion, Mayotte, Saint-Barthelemy, Saint-Martin, Martinique, Guadeloupe, Guyane and Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon)

Come here you big, beautiful cup of coffee and lie to me about how much we’re going to get done today.

I can only see that MS have updated POI:s and airports in Sweden. The roads are still green and same satellite images as before which are pretty bad...I have a bit hard to understand the statement that it has been impossible to get good satellite and 3d images for Sweden.  Since Google have at least 5 cities in 3D in Sweden and also we a lot of other different map providers in Sweden with quality satelite imagery which also provides 3d cities. So the Nordic update has been underwhelming to say the least...

At least one airport ESGP where I have been seem not updated. There is a missing blue club house which XP11 with ortho did get right. Also a lot of unrealistic lights on the runway which are not there in real life. Also don't notice any difference in the surrounding area.

What the French, I've just skimmed through the realese notets posted in the forum  https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/release-release-notes-1-17-3-0-world-update-v-nordics-now-available/410187 ,and lo and behold, there is Sweden amongst countries that got updated elevetion data. I'haven't flow that much after the update beacause of a temporay hefty workload, but can anyone confirm an area i Sweden that seems to have updated DEM after the update? The realease notes at https://www.flightsimulator.com/release-notes-1-17-3-0-world-update-v-nordics-now-available/ clearly dosen't mention Sweden.
