Orbx Announces South America Mesh for Microsoft Flight Simulator (Now Released)

Add even more detail to South America very soon.

Orbx has announced that they will soon be bringing South America Mesh to Microsoft Flight Simulator. Like their New Zealand mesh product released a few months ago, this will transform the whole of South America with improved mesh resolution.

That improved mesh resolution will bring the Andes Mountain Range to 10 meters/pixel, whilst the rest of the continent has a resolution of 20 meters/pixel. Orbx has interpolated the data so you’ll have a consistent experience across the land. There’s no noticeable difference in performance and you will not see any blurring and minimal LOD morphing. All of this is contained in a 25GB package.

South America, the fourth-largest continent, extends from the Gulf of Darién in the northwest to the Tierra del Fuego archipelago in the south. It is a continent of extremes and is home to the world’s largest river as well as the world’s driest place.
