    INTRODUCTION: FreeMeshX is a global terrain mesh replacement for the stock terrain mesh and features LOD10 (38-m) coverage for almost the entire world. LOD10 is equal to the same terrain level of detail used for the USA in the stock scenery. The rest of the world varies from LOD6 to LOD9. FreeMeshX was created to bring the rest of the world up to the LOD10 standard as much as possible, although some regions of the world in the higher latitudes are still limited to LOD9 (76-m). Compiling the source data into LOD11 yields neglibible improvements and is mostly a waste of precious hard drive space. FreeMeshX features LOD10 (38-m resolution) coverage for: North America (LOD10 Canada is released in this mesh - default USA is already LOD10, so USA is not included for the base release. A separate LOD12 USA mesh is available for beta testing) Europe Asia Africa Australia and Oceania A few regions are limited to LOD9 (76-m resolution): Antarctica Greenland Russian territories north of 60 N latitude FreeMeshX was compiled using over 400 GB of raw terrain data. The final size of the product is 46 GB, making it one of the largest freeware projects ever for FS. It wouldn't be in everyone's best interests to download all 46 GB at once, so we are releasing the product the product into continental regions for a total of 7 regions total. Each continent contains a number of 10 deg x 10 deg titles, mosaiced from 1 deg x 1 deg tiles into a 2.5 GB file, and then compressed into a BGL file. Defragmentation is highly recommended for mechanical hard drives to ensure smooth and quick loading. Largest improvements are found in regions that contained mainly the default LOD6 and LOD7 meshes. These included remote regions of Africa, South America, Antarctica, and Asia. Europe and Canada sees some improvement, but it's LOD9 mesh is just a one level upgrade to LOD10. Subtle improvements for these previously LOD9 regions will be found mainly in the accuracy of the mesh and level of detail in mountain ranges. DOWNLOADER: http://www.mediafire.com/file/wf4m97ck0v15w2n/fmx_global_2.0_downloader.zip Unzip the above file, and follow the instructions (below or in the README) to begin downloading. NEW INSTALLATION METHOD: FreeMeshX Global 2.0 is an update to introduce the new installation and download method that should alleviate the difficulty of installing FreeMeshX for some users. Included is a command-line based download system that uses the free and open-source wget tool to retrieve each installer and its associated parts. The entire download process is contained with a batch file that will commence automatically by simply double-clicking on it. Note, do not run the installer as administrator -- the downloader will fail. The download process is fully resumable, so those with slower download bandwidth can stop the download, and resume it at a later point. The installer will automatically detect where it left off and resume. The installers for each region are comprised by an .exe file and several .bin files if necessary. All of these files for each region must be downloaded completely into one folder before the installer .exe can be run. A downloader batch file is included for each region, and an all-in-one batch file is included for those who want to download the entire set in one go. A raw list of download links is also available who prefer to download the files through their own methods. Interior view of the extracted download folder: Example of the download tool working: A list of MD5SUMs is also included for those who want to directly verify the integrity of any or all files. A map is also included to illustrate how the world is divided up into regions. FreeMeshX Global 2.0 is cumulative. It includes all patches to each region, and an updated "FreeMeshX - Patches" folder where miscellaneous fixes belong. There is no need to download the old 7-ZIP parts from 1.0 - 1.07. They are fully incorporated into version 2.0. INSTALLATION: These installers will install each FreeMeshX Global region into a directory of your choosing. We highly recommend installing FreeMeshX Global OUTSIDE of your C:\Program Files directory. PLEASE REMEMBER TO ADD THIS FOLDER TO YOUR SIMULATOR'S SCENERY LIBRARY. This installer will not automatically add a Scenery Library entry (we don't want to accidentally corrupt your scenery.cfg). There are many tutorials online on how to add a Scenery Library entry for your simulator. We try to modify your system as little as possible. Therefore, no registries and no uninstaller are created. To uninstall FreeMeshX Global, simply delete the installed folder. We designed the installer this way so that you will have the full flexibility to do with FreeMeshX as you please e.g. such as moving it to another drive. ADDITIONAL NOTES: FreeMeshX does not update any vectors in the simulator. Vectors control the elevations of water bodies such as lakes, ponds, and rivers, and the elevations of airports. The mesh cannot alter these. Using FreeMeshX without a 3rd-party package to update the vectors within the simulator will result in the topography of the updated terrain to lie at different elevations while the vectors still remain at their inaccurate elevations. This mismatch will lead to artifcacts such as raised or sunken airports and waterbodies that will break immersion. Therefore, it is HIGHLY CRITICAL that the simulator's vectors are updated as well, such as through FTX Vectors or UTX, or the topography system of the simulator will be INCOMPLETE. We officially recommend the use of FTX Vectors because all of our testing incorporates it, and it uses elevations derived from the SRTM dataset, the same dataset we use for FreeMeshX Global. To conclude, it does not make any sense to use a global mesh without using any updated vectors. Likewise it does not make sense to use updated vectors without using an updated mesh. FreeMeshX is officially supported for FSX, FSX:SE, and all versions of P3D (including 64-bit P3D). FreeMeshX should be placed above the default terrain entries in the Scenery Library, and below any airports or FTX Regions or landclasses. Updated torrents should be released in the upcoming week (as of 07/29/2017). FreeMeshX USA: FreeMeshX USA entered open beta. See our announcement for details. CHANGELOG ADDITIONS: 07/29/2017 2.0 - Incorporated new installers and an automatic downloader to easily fetch installers over HTTP - New installers are up to date with all previous patches (1.01 - 1.07) - High-resolution 50 GB USA mesh now available through sign-up beta process Hypothetical scenery library order: 1 FreeMeshX - Patches 2 FreeMeshX - Africa 3 FreeMeshX - Antarctica 4 FreeMeshX - Asia 5 FreeMeshX - Australia and oceania 6 FreeMeshX - Europe 7 FreeMeshX - North America 8 FreeMeshX - South and Central America Of course, your real load order will be different, but you must keep FreeMeshX - Patches always above the FreeMeshX regions. -- Nine-Two Productions More screenshots....

    In this thread we'd like to track all the 3rd party add-ons that are being updated. We all know it’s coming May 30th…why not be Prepar3D with your installers?! Do you remember how slow all the flight simulator stores were when P3D v3 was released? Let us save you from that pain again so you can get a jumpstart on the download frenzy. As with any MAJOR release it’s recommended that you start completely fresh when switching to Prepar3D v4. There may be a way of migrating from P3D v3, but why would you want to? This is a time of change, embrace it with a fresh start. Your system will thank you for it, as will the new 64 bit application. Below are a list of add-ons we know will work in Prepar3D v4. As you find add-ons that are compatible, please don’t hesitate to post in this thread so we can update the growing list of add-ons and Developers that support P3D v4. Fun fact, in v4 your add-ons are kept OUTSIDE of the P3D directory, allowing for swift re-installs in the future and much better curation of your library!   Did you find an add-on that works? Please submit it in a post below!

    Cheers Guys! I created a new PTA and ReShade preset that, i think, looks very neutral and realistic overall and i would like to share them with you and hear your opinions! Down below you`ll find a short video that gives you some impressions. Download links are in the video description. Also there is a link to my Tutorial video on how to install ReShade the way i use it, with an additional effect from Mr. Predrag Drobac's URP1.1. (Lightroom.fx) I implemented as much of the ReShade shaders directly into the PTA preset. So ReShade isnt really needed, but recommended to get the exact same result as me. ReShade effects in use: "Ambient light", "Lightroom" (From URP1.1) It is REALLY, REALLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you use my PTA preset together with the Sky Textures that are linked in the video description! Credits go to Mamedov Gennadiy. If you have any questions or inputs feel free to ask, i will try to help... SkyFive!

    ORbx posted this on their forums: During the open beta, ObjectFlow 2 will be distributed via Fastlane. Fastlane allows you to opt-in to receive potentially unstable updates before they are released to everyone. Once you have opted-in to Fastlane, you will receive a beta update to FTX Central that includes ObjectFlow 2. This update will also allow you to view your airports in FTX Central for Prepar3D v4. Things to note: ObjectFlow 2 is an open BETA. This means it may cause instabilities in your simulator (crashes, display anomalies, etc). You do not need to download any additional programs to access Fastlane. Just opt-in from the Fastlane page on the website. Any open beta updates will be delivered via FTX Central v3. FTX Central updates will be more frequent, so you'll get new features faster. However, you may also experience more bugs. ObjectFlow 2 is only used in Prepar3D v4. FSX, FSX-SE and P3Dv1-3 will continue to use ObjectFlow 1. If you find an issue with ObjectFlow 2, please post it in the ObjectFlow 2 Open Beta forum. Additionally, please use this issue template as it will help speed up the troubleshooting process. How to opt-in to Fastlane and receive the open beta: Log in to your OrbxDirect account. Go to the Fastlane page: https://orbxdirect.com/account/fastlane Click "opt-in to Fastlane" Start FTX Central. You will be prompted to update to FTX Central version 3.2.2. You should now see all of your airports for Prepar3D v4 in FTX Central. When starting the simulator, click "yes" when it asks if you want to run ObjectFlow 2. How to opt-out of Fastlane and restore to the latest stable version: Log in to your OrbxDirect account. Go to the Fastlane page: https://orbxdirect.com/account/fastlane Click "opt-out of Fastlane" Delete the %localappdata%\Orbx\FTXCentral directory. Re-install FTX Central from https://orbxdirect.com/ftxcentral You are now running the latest stable version of FTX Central.

    RealLight shows some of the potential in the new v4 platform. TFDi announcing RealLight in their latest blog post. Since release, we’ve received quite a bit of criticism on our night lighting in the cockpit. Although not unjustified, it’s been frustrating for us, because it would take completely remapping the entire cockpit (an involved process) to even make a dent. Then, we’d still have to find a way to get around the old 16 bit format and poor blending methods available to us in older simulator platforms. With that in mind, we started evaluating ways to improve the lighting. We arrived at RealLight. We decided to brand RealLight as a technology standard so that other products using it will be able to establish to their users an expectation of quality. We intend to use this technology in other products and are looking in to licensing or sharing the technology with other developers. Prepar3D v3; Prepar3D v4; RealLight should now be available in the latest release of the 717, so if you own it, make sure to update the plane!

    Diamond DA40 is probably one of the best options for all your short hops, cross-country or VFR/sightseeing flights thanks to the fantastic cockpit visibility and performance. With its world wide popularity, we think that Diamond DA40 is a great choice for any flight simmer that prefer to fly light aircrafts. The soundpack is developed for Alabeo DA40, but of course you can adapt the soundpack for DA40 models from other developers. We carefully recorded and processed the sounds of Lycoming IO-360 engine in highest quality possible, providing clear, high fidelity, high-definition audio representation of this iconic engine. All sounds included in this product are recorded in the real airplane, and carefully processed to provide an authentic cockpit sound environment. Our goal was simple - to develop a soundpack that will mimic the sound environment you would experience in a real cockpit, hence we spent most of the time working exactly on that area. Additionally we received feedback from real Diamond DA40 pilots, thus we believe that we achieved a proper level of sound realism and immersion using Alabeo's add-on. NOTE: The soundpack will replace all default sounds! Authentic sounds included: High definition Lycoming IO-360 engine sounds Flaps Gyro Fuel pump Autopilot disconnect Stall warning Ground roll noise Wind Touchdown sounds including tire screech Door opening/closing sounds False start, starter and startup Shutdown with realistic hot engine popping sounds Wind noise with opened windows Stall vibration noise Custom switch sounds Full external sounds with multi-angle sound cones

Our Otter package will include wheel, float and ski variants of the aircraft as well as classic and modern cockpit configurations. The DHC-3 Otter is a single engine, high-wing aircraft designed for short take-off and landing (STOL) operations. Developed as a successor to the popular DHC-2 Beaver, it shares the same configuration but with a larger wing, fuselage and a significantly greater operating weight. It is powered by a R-1340 radial engine and it can seat up to eleven passengers and a variety of cargo, including ski-doos and motocross bikes destined for remote areas which are inaccessible to less rugged aircraft. A total of 466 were built between 1951 and 1967.This DHC-3 Otter package includes wheel, float and ski variants of the aircraft, and classic and modern cockpit configurations.Modelled using real-world plans, the aircraft feature multiple animations and a highly detailed engine. The faithfully recreated virtual cockpit features 3D instrumentation, wear and tear, and realistic systems functionality.Four liveries for each variant, realistic flight dynamics and an authentic radial engine sound set complete this extensive package.

    Got a software updated from Just Flight today. Dear Sir/Madam, As you bought the Just Flight PA-28R Arrow III and/or the PA-28R Turbo Arrow III/IV add-on, or the Bundle which includes both aircraft, we thought we'd let you know that new software is available which provides P3D v4 compatibility. If you log in to your Just Flight account and click on 'Your Orders', you will be able to re-download the software for the aircraft you have purchased to get the latest P3D v4 compatible versions. Best wishes, The Just Flight Crew LINK TO SOURCE: https://www.justflight.com/product/pa28r-arrow-iii

    It is going to be a long list considering Brazil alone has over 4000 airports and second, to the US it is about time hopefully Africa will follow.
