Hello Everyone, I need some help on choosing the best monitor in market for P3D V4. Between a 4k and an ultrawide (21:9) with 1440p resolution, which would bring the best immersion and performance? I´m thinking of buying a 34" display with a refresh rate greater than 100Hz and G-sync technology (I have a GTX 1070). Is there any other spec that I should include in my search? Perhaps response time? From my research I´ve learned that performance with a 4k resolution isn´t affected drastically since P3D´s engine is mostly CPU bound. Is this true? Will I see a lot of difference between 4k and 1440p? Does a 21:9 aspect ratio has big benefits over a 16:9 with regards to immersion? Please help... My Rig: ROG Maximus Hero VIII i7 firstname.lastname@example.org Nvidia GTX 1070 16Gb Ram
Release of UHD Mesh Scenery v4 for X-Plane 11 UHD Mesh Scenery v4 can be seen as a vastly improved version of the default scenery shipping with XP11. It is using/referencing the exact same set of artwork files (textures, object, autogens, forests) which ship with XP11, so you do not need other art assets to be installed while UHD Mesh Scenery v4 will also benefit from any artwork improvements (autogen, texture) coming with future XP11 versions. General Characteristics of UHD Mesh Scenery v4 are identical to those of HD Mesh Scenery v4 (you can read those on its own page). The advantages of UHD Mesh Scenery v4 are: Uses 30m DEM data (instead of 90m DEMs)! Landclass data for some areas (USA West, Europe Alps, Europe Pyrenees, Japan, New Zealand) was re-created with very high resolution (compared to the data used in HD Mesh Scenery v4) resulting in even better landclass representation. The triangle mesh resolution a lot higher than in HD Mesh Scenery v4: this give - obviously - even better representation of the 30m DEM data (slopes, mountains etc.) BUT this also vastly(!) improves the landclass data representation (which in X-Plane is very closely coupled with the triangle size in the mesh). This is most obvious with forest detail. OSM data is updated (its "date stamp" is 10th January 2018) . Which makes it newer than the data in UHD Mesh Scenery v4. Coverage New Zealand Japan Europe - Pyrenees Europe - Alps Europe - Scandinavia USA - West (3 files, 1/2/3) Canada - West (3 files, 1/2/3) Important Warnings! The scenery requires at least X-Plane 11.00 !!! IT WILL NOT WORK WITH X-Plane 10.xx! 32 GBytes of RAM are highly recommended (64 GBytes are optimal)! Some areas might work with 16 GBytes of RAM too, but there it is very likely you will quickly run into some OOM issues! Official Site All other (continuously updated) information, download links and important instructions can be found on the official UHD Mesh Scenery v4 Site: http://www.alpilotx.net/downloads/x-plane-11-uhd-mesh-scenery-v4/ Please read the instructions carefully, as not following them might result in a broken installation! Screenshots Here are the official screenshots accompanying the release of UHD Mesh Scenery v4. Just follow the links to my Google Photos albums: UHD Mesh Scenery v4 (for X-Plane 11) Have Fun!

Some of you might have already read about it here or there: UHD Mesh Scenery v4 Although this is NOT RELEASED yet, I thought it would be time to show you a bunch of - more or less - final screenshots of some of the finished regions: Alps / Pyrenees (Europe) Japan New Zealand USA West (everything west of 104°W!) As always, UHD Mesh will use high resolution elevation data (30m DEMs from various sources) and at least for the above mentioned regions also some specially tuned high resolution landclass data (compared to HD Mesh). The exact release date is still unknown, because I have still not finished - but at least planned - Canada West and Scandinavia (how, or how much they will be covered will have to be seen). But I aim for sometime spring 2018 (but again, no guarantees). Now, this way you can head over to the quite extensive (already 187 pics) album: https://photos.app.goo.gl/0SC8UmRvs0OkJcQX2 And here are a few appetizers:
