I have what will probably be considered a dumb question.  How come Orbx don't have this already built into their product line rather than have to buy 3rd party? :wub:

First, Iain I'm speechless!  Number four is a stunner!  Is this the PILOT'S - FS Global Ultimate - Next Generation FTX (Download) | The FlightSim Store mesh?  If so I'm all OVER it!

Yes all Orbx products have a mesh with them or you can download one like Holger mesh for Australia but I wanted a more detailed mesh.

Congrats Iain on your new purchase. I have had Ultimate NG since it came out and it certainly enhances the visuals doesn't it? I would be very interested to see how you handle the various anomalies of troughs and plateaux that will occur. I assume you also download and installed the special AFM2 flattening programme? As you know the AFM is designed to be used where Vector AEC doesn't have the ICAO of the airport you may have an elevation problem with. However I find it is better in many circumstances than the AEC, so sometimes it best to remove the AEC ICAO from Vector and install the ICAO flattening from AFM.

What metre resolution are you using in your sim? Are you sticking with the 5m recommendation? Also are you still having it enabled when you fly in a FTX Region with it's own mesh. I do, and see no adverse affect 99% of the time.

So now we will see many of your superb pics and preview shots in greater detail especially of course in the mountainous areas.

 I would ask if you would be good enough to answer my questions above as I look to you as somewhat of an expert and may learn from you regarding mesh settings etc since we are now operating the same mesh.

I haven't downloaded or installed AFM, Yes I have it enabled when flying in Orbx regions my settings are below for you.

Looks mighty impressive Iain...does it have any hit on your load times?

I can see two choices...Is FS Global 2018 or FS Global Ultimate-Next Generation the way to go? the later appears to give 1m resolution...

So Iain,

 

Can you confirm that with a 1m mesh resolution, P3D V4 does not show significantly more mesh morphing near the plane ?

 

Some Orbx developpers mean a 1m mesh could will affect dense construct areas with floating houses because the Orbx standard is 5m and so the developpers would have a very huge work to rearrange everything. (eg : I had strange bugs at Sekiu with 1m mesh, the tarmac was translucend).

 

PS : Could you make some screenies in Grand Canyon ? :wub:

 

Regards
