Colorado 10 and 3-meter terrain mesh for FSX and P3D

Colorado 10 & 3-meter Terrain Mesh

Developed by Chris Britton for FSX, P3Dv2, P3Dv3, P3Dv4 & P3Dv5.

E-Mesh: Colorado is a mesh scenery covering the entire state of Colorado. It features a high resolution base mesh of 10 meters and includes select areas in extremely high resolution 3m terrain mesh!

As of May 2020, E-Mesh Colorado is now free! The scenery and installer have also been completely overhauled from top to bottom.

It’s important to note that from version 1.1 out, this scenery is no longer compatible with previous versions! All versions less than v1.1 will need to be completely removed to prevent conflicts.

What is Terrain Mesh?

The world is filled with dips, hills, mountains, and valleys. Without these features, our planet would be rather flat and boring. Terrain Mesh is rendered from Digital Elevation Models that are acquired from the scanning of the earth's surface. These models depict all the land features of earth, which we then convert to a format in which FSX can read. In turn, this recreates all the crisp land features that we see every time we fly.

Due to the difference in resolution between default mesh and E-Mesh: Colorado, it should be noted that there will likely be airports and water bodies with elevation issues in the coverage area. There are no plans to correct these issues, as doing so would be a huge undertaking.
