View Full Version : mesh for 2000 in 2002

12-22-2002, 10:52 AM
Some Montana sceneries (for 2002) say they work with Eddie Denney's Montana mesh. The only Denney mesh for Montana i can find is labelled for flight sim 2000.

Is a mesh designed for 2000 interchangeable, and will it work in 2002??

(and if not, does anyone know the name of the denney mesh for 2002??)

many thanks in advance for any assistance..

Hi goshad,

Generally, yes, fs2000 terrain will work in FS2002. But . . .

Most FS2000 terrain was designed at 153m resolution, and for the most part the default terrain in FS2002 is already 153m in the US. So, installing the older stuff labeled for fs2000 will genreally offer little, if any, improvement to the FS2002 terrain.

You'd probably want to install some 38.2m terrain if you want to see a drastic improvement in your terrain in FS2002. There is a bunch of free examples at http://www.fsgenesis.net under the Mesh Central tab. You can download some of that stuff and evaluate it.

There are two United States sets made from the USGS 30m NED:

6 CD set -- http://www.fs-traveler.com
5 CD set -- http://www.fsgenesis.net

There is one 3-CD set, RealScene (Denney), made from the old USGS 90m dataset, but it should probably be avoided because about 60% of the data is inaccurate by virtual over-sampling.

Hope this helps

All of Denneys mesh work fine in FS2002 and they don't badly stutter as they did in FS2000. Add Gerrish Greys autogen buildings and his trees and your set for great VFR flying.

LAST EDITED ON Dec-22-02 AT 10:26PM (EST)[p]Also check for scenery from Orlando Sotomayor. I'm running some FS2K Salt Lake City area scenery & FS2002 Sedona,Arizona scenery of his. Both are in the 38m class, and much more detail over default. As to the FS2k install directions which were quite complicated, you just ignore it all, and copy the bgl. files into FS2002's addon scenery/scenery file.
