The Alaskan Mesh Project: Southwest covers a large portion of Southwest Alaska in a layer of 10-meter terrain mesh. AMP: SW does not include Kodiak Island or some of the Aleutians, as no high resolution data is currently available for these areas. They will be added once data becomes available.
The Alaskan Mesh Project started out as a rainy day project with a scope to enhance the mountains around Talkeetna, Alaska. Eventually it was decided to further expand the coverage area and release the scenery for everyone to enjoy. AMP: SW is the fifth and final release of this project.
The Coverage Area
The Alaskan Mesh Project: Southwest borders our AMP: NW, SE, and SAK coverage areas. AMP: SW covers roughly 336,000 KM² of SW Alaska’s rugged terrain.
AMP: SAK Updated to v1.3!
Alongside the release of AMP: SW, SAK has also been updated to v1.3. This update removes an area of redundant elevation data, now included in AMP: SW. A smaller size, update only version is available from our Updates page.
Compatibility in Mind
Most airports and water bodies will have elevation issues. This is just a given with high resolution terrain mesh. This will likely not be fixed by myself due to the immense amount of work required.
Install smart, don’t waste your HDD space!
Unlike our other sceneries, AMP has not been packaged into an auto installer. My reasoning behind this is simple: There is no need to reinstall this scenery under multiple simulator versions. It has been compiled under the FSX SDK and will work flawlessly in FSX, FSX:SE, and P3Dv1-5.
I recommend placing this scenery in one location on your HDD (Or SSD). You may then point all your installed simulators to it’s location. This will use the minimal amount of space as possible.
AMP: NW uses the same folder structure as all other AMP regions. Copy the “Alaskan Mesh Project” folder to the location of your other Alaskan Mesh Project folder and combine the directories. AMP: NW does not need it’s own scenery library entry using this method.
