I want to install a Mesh for St. Martin/St. Maarten island in the Caribbean, to be used in conjunction with Christian Delblond's TNCM and TFFG sceneries.Any recommendations?Thanks!

If all you want is altitude mesh for that island, then you will probably have to make it yourself. There was an old mesh (from 5 or 6 years ago) by Orlando Sotomayor, but the default should be as good or better. It is a SRTM-source mesh, by the way, sampled to LOD 8, and that is pretty good for such a small island.There are, however, alternatives for a greater area, covering this and other islands. But, then, you will come up on the misplaced land masses problem - Holger mentions this in another thread.In short, the islands are not drawn in the proper shape, in the proper size, or in the right place! This is most likely because the FS Team did not have access to accurate source data.However, the mesh data is more accurate as to the location. The result is that the mesh does not appear on the land masses, but mostly in the water where it is flattened to sea level.For example, here is St. Martin where you can see the mesh and the location of the shoreline as drawn in yellow:http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/143479.jpgAnd the same for St. Barth:http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/143480.jpgAnd how about Virgin Gorda:http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/143481.jpgAll the islands are like that, so there may not really be any point in a more detailed mesh, when much of it will not display.However, if you really want, just search the Avsim library and you should find some SRTM LOD 9 mesh in there.Best regards.Luis
