This patch fixes issues with artifacts in tiles N30E010 and N40E010.
Regions affected are FreeMeshX – Europe, specifically the area of Italy and the Balkans. These areas suffered from stair-stepping and texture striping on initial release, and the bug came to our attention from community members Ebsy and Pe11e. Thanks guys! These two tiles had a faulty compilation due to a bad mosaic of 1 deg x 1 deg tiles into a 10 deg x 10 deg tile. This patch replaces these tiles with corrected versions, so no more stair-steps.
Inside the FreeMeshX – 1.01 Patch folder you will find the FreeMeshX – Patches folder.
The FreeMeshX – Patches folder will be the future folder for all corrected terrain tiles. This folder needs to be added to the scenery library with a higher priority over all FreeMeshX regions.In other words, the terrain files in this folder will be loaded last to correct any faulty tiles in the 1.0 release.
Special note to seeders: If you are seeding your FreeMeshX installation directly, please do not overwrite the old tiles with the corrected versions. The torrent will not like that, and will reject your seed. Add the patch files into their own library entry, e.g. FreeMeshX – Patches, and then prioritize it over all FreeMeshX regions.
Hypothetical relative scenery library order
- FreeMeshX – Patches
- FreeMeshX – Africa
- FreeMeshX – Antarctica
- FreeMeshX – Asia
- FreeMeshX – Australia and Oceania
- FreeMeshX – Europe
- FreeMeshX – North America
- FreeMeshX – South and Central America
Of course, your real load order will be different, but you must keep the FreeMeshX – Patches library entry above the FreeMeshX regions.
I’ve been frequently asked on where to add these in the scenery library. The answer is: It’s up to you. I would keep them before ORBX regions and after your stock scenery. That’s about all the advice we can give you since everyone’s library is so different.
