This patch fixes several remote areas in South America, but also fixes artifacts in the Alps that were mistakenly introduced in patch 1.05. Some small miscellaneous fixes are also included for Florida and Vietnam.
Remote areas of Patagonia and Amazonia Profunda needed some major corrections. That is the bulk of this patch. In patch 1.05, when I recompiled the area of N 40 deg E 010 deg, I forgot to include some corrected data, so the previous patch actually introduced some artifacts, especially near Innsbruck, Austria. This area is now fixed in patch 1.06. In addition, a water bug was smoothed out near KFLL, and a spike was removed near Hi Van Pass near Da Nang, Vietnam.
This patch is non-cumulative. I recommend you install the cumulative patch 1.05 before you install 1.06. Many fixes and upgrades are included in 1.05.
Here is your installation guide for patch 1.06:
- Drag and drop the scenery folder from each FreeMeshX region folder from the 1.05 patch into your corresponding installed region folder. Overwrite all files. Do the same for the FreeMeshX – Patches folder.
- You’re done. That was easy.
If you’re a new user, make sure you add scenery entries to your scenery library. See http://ninetwopro.com/freemeshx/fmx-installation/ for a pictorial guide on that process.
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 any ORBX regions and after your stock scenery. That’s about all the advice we can give you since everyone’s library is so different.

Both BitTorrent or MediaFire download is supported. If there is active seeding by numerous seeders, the BitTorrent option is often faster, and the file integrity checks are exceptional. However, MediaFire serves great download speeds, especially if a download manager is used, which we highly recommend in order to avoid corrupted downloads and for pause/resume functionality.
