This pack by the developer who simply goes by the name of Chris brings the mesh terrain (DEM - digital elevation models) data up to much higher resolution for the entire country of Italy.
This pack is compatible with Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) 2020 release. The DEM data in this pack is much improved on the Microsoft default and mountains, valleys, and shorelines look much closer to their real-world counterpart.
DEM data (or mesh as many legacy FS users will know it) is the information that is below the photoreal scenery you see below you. It's what defines the heights, depths, and details of the terrain the photoreal data it "wrapped around".
The entire country of Italy is included, from the far north right down to the lower south regions. Also many of the islands such as Sicily, Sardina are included as well as many more.
Some of the regions included are;
- Friuli-Venezia Giulia
- Latium (Lazio)
- Puglia (Apulia)
- Sardegna (Sardinia)
- Sicilia (Sicily)
- Toscana (Tuscany)
- Trentino-Alto Adige(Trentino-South Tyrol )
- Valle d'Aosta(Aosta Valley )
This pack brings a 20-meter resolution data to increase the resolution of the default MSFS DEM scenery.
Below you can find an image of the coverage of this DEM scenery upgrade.
The developer has stated some know issues
- Edges of covered areas don't blend to the original in-game/bing DEM
- Peak elevations might have small "spikes"
- Sub-optimal file size
There will be improvements to this mesh in future updates. Bookmark this page to stay updated.
