The covered area extends: from 70E to 100E, and 24N to 38N! land cover data comes from a GLCN project (and this

After the successful release of “HD Mesh Scenery v3″ last December, the new “UHD Mesh Scenery v1″ tries to push the limits of the X-Plane 10 scenery engine even further. The general characteristics of “UHD Mesh Scenery v1″ are identical to those described in HD Mesh Scenery v3. The main differences (and improvements) are: 30m resolution DEM elevation data instead of 90m DEM data. (once more) massively increased mesh density … by roughly factor 2.5 to 3! This is not

The freeware / donationware scenery X-Plane 10 Tree Lines and Farms V2 has been released! The “X-Plane 10 tree lines and farms V2” scenery is the second version of an overlay add-on for X-Plane 10.
