alpilotx.net X-Plane 10 HD Scenery Mesh can be seen as an experimental, improved version of the default Laminar Research X-Plane 10 Global Scenery. According to alpilotx.net “Here is a short list what it is, and what it is not.
It is “just” a much higher resolution base mesh (more triangles) for selected regions in X-Plane 10, the higher resolution mesh allows for a much more detailed representation of the elevation profile of the landscape, the higher resolution mesh allows a much more detailed/exact representation of the underlying land class data, the HD Scenery uses exactly the same raw data as the default Global Scenery … its just representing it in much more detail and much more.
