This mod contains customized height profiles for Austria in a 2 part download. The mod contains high definition LIDAR DEM data with a mesh resolution of 10m, whereas the MSFS uses a lateral resolution of about 50m or worse. The height resolution is as good as 0.1m.
The mod does not only provide mountain shapes being very close to reality, but also flattens lakes & rivers and gets rid of any terrain artifacts.
Everything has been split into several regions, due to both, convenience for the creator compiling it and performance on the users' end.
PLEASE MAKE SURE TO DOWNLOAD BOTH PARTS!
Disclaimer: The creator of this mod is not responsible for any problems, damage, incompatibilites to other mods or performance issues that might occur.
Please note, that this mod is a very high resolution mesh covering the whole of Austria. The elevation data is applied through terraforming rectangles, thus loaded at a certain distance from the player. When travelling fast or at high alitude (wide range of view) there might be too many new rectangles loaded simultaneously and thus stutters might occur.
If you have any stutters you can try and reduce your ingame render settings or switch to the lower resolution mod:
DOWNLOAD 20m DEM
If you are mainly flying airliners in high altitude, there is probably no benefit for you in using this mod.
As mentioned the mesh is split into regions/states of Austria. They can be activated at once or individually!
Area codes correspondence:
b - Burgenland
ooe - Upper Austria
noe1 - Lower Austria (west)
noe2 - Lower Austria (east) including Vienna
k - Carinthia/East Tyrol
s - Salzburg
st1 - Styria (west)
st2 - Styria (east)
t - Tyrol
v - Vorarlberg
I tested several sceneries to get an idea of the compatibility between high resolution mesh data and the airports.
Tested several freeware airports, they were mostly fine except of a few floating buildings here and there.
All of the currently available Payware Airports should work fine, as fixes have been applied.
The elevation data used was a LIDAR 10m height profile of Austria, compiled by Sonny (https://data.opendataportal.at/dataset/dtm-austria/resource/7fd4a6c3-16b8-4632-9978-10344c404a69)
It was then transfered into MSFS using MSFS Toolkit by Nool Aerosystems (https://msfs.nool.ee/)
Thank you both and for anyone reading this: Please go ahead and support them!
Simply unzip the download and copy&paste the contained folders into your "community folder".
Enjoy your VFR flights above Austria!
