This is the open beta for FreeMeshX USA at LOD12 depth. The current stock mesh scenery for FSX (and Steam Edition) for the USA is LOD10 and represents a depth of 38-meter coverage. This package enhances the entire USA region to bring it up to LOD12 (9.5m pixel size).
This mesh scenery add-on gives a greatly improved terrain coverage for the entire region of the United States of America (all states included).
Mesh scenery is essentially the ups-and-downs of the terrain below you as you fly. It's what brings the valleys, mountains, cliff edges, and hills to life. It sits below the ground textures and defines how they look in a 3D landscape. It makes the ground appear more natural and true-to-life (especially if you know the area being flown over). This package just covers the USA in LOD12 (UHD detail).
Please note, in this beta version, Hawaii and Alaska are unfinished and may be updated in later versions - check this page for updates.
The add-on is compatible with all versions of FSX including all boxed versions and the Steam Edition. It is also compatible with all versions of Prepar3D including the latest P3Dv5.
This package also has the N40W085.bgl fix included; no need to download additional files.
Some fantastic mountainous regions of the USA to experience this scenery (in order of mean elevation level):
- New Mexico
But those listed above are just examples - this pack includes coverage of the entire USA (all states in UHD detail).
Looking for Worldwide Coverage?
This LOD12 UHD package is just for the USA, however, you can get a global package to replace the standard mesh (at LOD10) here.
The scenery is a country-wide mesh add-on for the whole of the United States and brings the default mesh up to UHD specs. It's a large download but you will notice how defined the terrain below you becomes after installing this add-on.
How to Install
Added by popular demand in the comment section below are more complete installation instructions.
- Extract the entire archive to somewhere where you want to keep the add-on on your computer while you use it.
- Open up FSX or P3D and enter the "Scenery Library" section/settings from the settings master menus.
- Click on "Add Area".
- Browse to where you extracted this FreeMesh X USA Freeware add-on and select/browse into the "
FreeMeshX USA" folder. Once inside the directory, there should be one folder visible called "
scenery". Then ensure you select "Use this scenery directly" and finally click on "OK".
- Once you have added the new mesh scenery, ensure that the scenery is at the top of your library - higher (priority) than any other add-ons.
- Then press "OK".
- For good measure, close and then re-open your simulator (FSX/P3D) and enjoy the new mesh terrain in your flights.
Note - quote from Nine Two Productions
There is a bug in FSX where clicking OK does nothing, and may seem you are stuck. Don’t despair! Clicking anywhere any white space in the browsing menu will close the dialog window.
