Orbx Announces Alaska Mesh for Microsoft Flight Simulator

Following on from the success of their Iceland and New Zealand Mesh product for Microsoft Flight Simulator, Orbx has announced a new Alaska Mesh product. The new product will completely overhaul the mesh within the Alaska region, improving the overall resolution without impacting the performance of the simulator.

Using the latest 5m resolution data from the US government, Alaska Mesh for Microsoft Flight Simulator will reduce LOD morphing, whilst improve the visuals for the stunning area. As a self-contained product, there will be no changes to the core files of the simulator, and there is virtually no performance impact when using the product. Some previews were shared on the Orbx forums showcasing it in action with Aleutian Islands, Denali National Park, Glacier Bay and the Brooks Range.

No release date or pricing information was shared, but we imagine it won’t be far off before it’s released.
