Designed by Indie developer, Dmytro Krykunov, British Isles Mesh marks the sixth installment in Orbx’s series of terrain enhancements, following Iceland, Alaska, Himalaya/Central Asia and South America.

The package features high-resolution data integrated to fill low-resolution areas of the default terrain mesh and correct spikes and troughs along DEM grid sections. Ireland has also been updated using new mesh from ALOS satellite DEM data, enhancing the terrain at over 200 locations with 2m/pixel resolution.

British Isles Mesh is a fully self-contained product with no changes to the default mesh or other files. With virtually no noticeable performance impact, each LOD is consistent without blurring and minimal LOD morphing.

Mountainous upland ranges have received high-quality DEM data.
