Massive Trench - New England USA

Postby scottb613 » Mon Aug 12, 2019 2:59 pm

Hi Folks,

I spend a great deal of time flying the northeastern United States - this trench has always bothered me - nearest airport KAQW - LAT/LON on GPS in screenshot... It truly destroys the immersion in an absolutely beautiful area...

It’s about 9 miles east of KAQW.

While my screenshot has a bunch of addons - I can confirm it exists in default P3Dv4.5 as well..

Can we get this fixed ?

Thanks...

Regards,
Scott

Hi Folks,

Here is the same location in vanilla - no addons.

Using any non-default mesh?
I am using an addon mesh from Pilot's along with the Orbx NA and Canada openLC products and that spot looks pretty normal in my view from about the same spot and altitude.

Using FreeMesh and UTX USA, it looks OK also.

Hi Dan/Jorgen,

Thanks - no - I haven't run any addon mesh since FS9 - as I understood it - the base mesh in P3D runs the same resolution as addon mesh for North American coverage - so I didn't see a point of adding any... I normally run the full ORBX Global Suite in the area...

LOL - obviously - if I want to fill this trench - I should consider some ? Am I going to have elevation issues at airports - and the dreaded water spikes that we would get in FS9 - or is addon mesh pretty seamless today ?

Unfamiliar with the "Pilot's" mesh mentioned - I do know of the one "Freeware" pack by Nine Two called "FreeMeshX" - is that the one you would you recommend ?

Appreciate the help - still would be nice for LM to fix this...

Regards,
Scott

Hi Spencer,

Thanks so much and I can’t ask for more than that - greatly appreciated - sir...

OBTW - just noticed JV officially confirm that a New England Maritimes region is in the works at ORBX - so you might expect many more people frequenting this area of the country once they finish the product - lol - kind of made my day...

Regards,
Scott

Scott,

The FreeMeshX you mention from Nine Two Productions is the one I am using.

You might want to try it, the price is right and you can always uninstall it again if it doesn't do what you want it to do.
