Taking advantage of the new, improved FSX terrain engine, this product will take your terrain detail to new heights. These terrain files are also P3D-compatible, with manual configuration.
Featuring 19.2m resolution for the entire country, border to border, with a 0.1 degree border buffer (default resolution is 612m), FSGenesis ASTERMesh will bring familiar detail to all those spectacular topographical features known by the native people. Go anywhere in the country, right on your desktop. Simply add to cart, checkout, download, install, and you'll soon be on your way to new adventures through spectacular terrain!
Technically, this product has been derived from the 30m ASTER GDEM V2 data and corrected in-house where anomalies were found. The dat was then compiled into multi-resolution (LODs 6-11) BGLs. An auto-installer will easily install the files onto your hard drive, then go fly and enjoy!
What is Terrain Mesh?
The world is not flat…it comprises mountains, valleys, rolling plains, etc. I.E. topographical features. These bumps, dips, and flat areas all need to be translated into a surface understood by your flight simulator. Terrain Mesh is the name given to the Digital Elevation Model, (DEM), that represents these topographical features. This is the surface of the earth over which the user flies in the simulator (or crashes into!) For more than a decade, FSGenesis has been the leader in highly realistic, high resolution terrain mesh for flight simulator. So to make your simulator world and scenery as realistic as possible, you need terrain mesh!
