New Generations of Mesh are released

PILOT’S announced that the new generations of FTX, FS Global Ultimate and FS Global 2018, have been released to support the launch of the new generation of flight simulation platform, P3D v4 and Flight Sim World.

FS Global Ultimate

FS Global Ultimate – Next Generation is a software, which delivers mesh scenery (= 3D wireframe) for the whole globe. It is the successor of FS Global Ultimate (3 DVD box sets) and available as download for the first time! It comes with many fixes, a bunch of new higher resolution areas and overall a completely new dataset from 2017.

Immerse into professional simulation. Experience mountains as they are in reality, cliffy and sharp-edged. Not soft and round, as they normally tend to be in simulators. About 80 GB of 3D-data get more than 500 times more detail into your Flight Simulator than default world! Hundreds of hours of manual editing have removed errors and adapted source data to match each other.

The resolution of the FS Global – Next Generation mesh is up to 1m, where data permits and resolution makes sense. This means, the points of the wire frame are 1m apart. For technical geeks: THE LOD varies from LOD 8 to LOD 15. LOD 8 for “flat” areas (you don’t need higher LODs there, since flat is flat, whatever LOD you will render it in) and more to LOD 14 for mountainous areas (data availability permitting). Some showcases have been rendered in LOD15.

If you want your sim much more realistic, THAT is the product, which delivers to your hopes! Absolutely newest mesh data in breath taking quality.

FS Global Ultimate – Next Generation seamlessly blends into your existing Flight Simulator scenery, optimized for best frame rates and short loading times.

This edition was designed to support FS Global Vector as well as Orbx FTX Global Texture, Vector and LC as they are made available. Install all of them and you have a completely new Flight Simulator World.

FS Global Ultimate – Next Generation can at any time be used as a standalone mesh add-on as well.

FS Global Ultimate – Next Generation FTX was designed to work with Microsoft FSX, FSX:Steam Edition, Lockheed Martins Prepar3D V3.x & V4.x as well as with Dovetails Flight Sim World.

Features:

  • Completely new development, data from 2017
  • Intelligent rendering for best frame rates
  • New algorithms for sharp edges and mountain ridges
  • Resolution up to 1 m
  • Source data manually edited for error elimination
  • Bathymetry mesh for Prepar3D (submarines are possible)
  • AFM2 for alignment of airport elevations to a new mesh scenery (available as download; registration at www.fsim.net required)

FS Global 2018

FS Global 2018 is a software, which delivers mesh scenery (= 3D wireframe) for the whole globe. It is the successor of FS Global 2010 and comes with many fixes, a bunch of new higher resolution areas and overall a completely new dataset from 2017. If you want even higher resolution (up to 1m), look out for FS Global Ultimate – Next Generation, the larger brother.

(We often are asked “Is it really the whole world, which is covered?” The answer is “Yes, the whole world is covered”.)

The resolution of the FS Global 2018 mesh is up to 9m, where data permits and resolution makes sense. This means, the points of the wire frame are 9m apart. For technical geeks: THE LOD varies from LOD 8 to LOD 12. LOD 8 for “flat” areas (you don’t need LOD 12 there, since flat is flat, whatever LOD you will render it in) and more to LOD 12 for mountainous areas (data availability permitting).

FS Global 2018 seamlessly blends into your existing Flight Simulator scenery, optimized for best frame rates and short loading times.

This edition was designed to support FS Global Vector as well as Orbx FTX Global Texture, Vector and LC as they are made available. Install all of them and you have a completely new Flight Simulator World.

FS Global 2018 FTX can at any time be used as a standalone mesh add-on as well.

FS Global 2018 FTX was designed to work with Microsoft FSX, FSX:Steam Edition, Lockheed Martins Prepar3D V3.x & V4.x as well as with Dovetails Flight Sim World.

Features:

  • (FS-Mesh- and sourcedata in 9m resolution!) for Hawaii (complete) and the southwest of the US, south of 38°N and west of 108°W (ca. Mesa Verde -> Point Reyes)
  • High Quality Coverage of North America (and p.Canada!): nationwide LOD11 (19m)
  • Greenland, Iceland and Scandinavia in LOD 9 (76m; standard SRTM resolution)
  • additional high resolution areas in Europe in LOD11 (19m): High Tatra, Scottland, Hardangervidda (Norway)
  • huge areas in the north of Russia in LOD9
  • Antarctica in LOD8
  • sophisticated new algorithm for correct views of ridges and peaks (most of them should have been higher and will now be nearer to actual value)
  • new algorithm for reducing irrelevant data for higher data compression
  • new algorithm for finding and correcting errors
  • AFM2 for alignment of airport elevations to a new mesh scenery (available as download; registration at www.fsim.net required)
