Hi Tim,Blurries these days are caused primarily by out of date video card drivers under FSX or an underpowered system... For the longest time after installing SP1 I had blurries on my system until I recently upgraded to the latest ATI drivers and then everything came crystal clear again... I was running a Radeon 9800 Pro at the time...The NEXTMap ProMesh data improves the shape of the mountains but doesn't touch the flight simulator configuration settings as that is something best left up to individual users as each system differs...The way we've compiled the data is optimized for the best balance between high resolution fractional elevation sampling and performance and load on the videocard and CPU...We initially wanted to go for higher fraction bits settings in our datasets but found that it led to higher loads on the system and that in turn could exacerbate blurries causing the sim to load a lower level of detail within the scenery... Hence we've chosen the path of not taxing the system too much at this in time but providing a future free upgrade once computer systems can handle the load...Hope this info helps...Aloha,Dean.
