Personally that doesn’t sit right with me, but I can see the case considering he did the work I guess. Hmm.
As for mesh + autogen, yes - I think mesh isn’t enough, it’s the stuff on top of the right realistic type that makes the big difference. Considering X-Plane’s strongest suit isn’t really VFR, it’s surprising it has the best (free) option really.
EDIT: Also should add for X-Plane, occasionally the Ultra mesh seems to add ‘bumps’ to airports, in that it’s nice to seem some variation, but it’s also odd to ‘jump’ on take-off when you hit an elevation change mid-runway. I don’t know if there is a way to ensure all airfields are flat, as I definitely order the scenery files the right way.
This is true, There are 2 airports I have flown into that I had to uncheck it. Cario and Abu Dubi. For whatever reason both had some bad taxiways and runways. And by bad I mean random mountians in the middle of the runway or taxiway.
@fearlessfrog you wouldnt believe but I purchased the openVFR Slovakia terrain a week ago. Yes they ask money for it, but it is not so expensive (at least Slovakia wasnt). And here is the result - Trencin view from north. The river starts at the north part of the city and ends at the south part. And the shape is also not so correct, the XP rendition of the river is so much better.
I already contacted the openVFR support and I am waiting for their turn now.
