#Experimental Italy
Alternative DEM for Italy - 20 Meter resolution
With this higher terrain resolution (now very poor default), you get superior relief quality, like mountines, hills and sea coast.

Install by extracting to Community folder as usual

Documentation and basic implementation to create native DEMs will be made available at github.com/muumimorko/MSFS2020_CGLTools
Please post technical question and comments at FSDeveloper.com forum: MSFS - Everything about CGL generation

Release notes:
v1.0 first public release
v1.1 removed thin wall where end DEM10 data and start DEM25 data

Known issues:
  • Edges of covered areas don't blend to the original in-game/bing DEM
  • Peak elevations might have small "spikes"
  • Sub-optimal file size

    Excellent! It's incredible what a difference this makes to the look of the landscape when flying at low altitudes. Thank you.

    A must if you like to fly in the alps, mountains are far more accurate. It's not perfect as you need to get somewhat close before the better detail pops in, but for now this is a big improvement on default.

    Ciao, devo dire che dopo aver visto il resto delle alpi questa è una delle poche addon che tengo sempre quando volo in Italia. Ottimo lavoro ed è proprio quello di cui il sim ha bisogno... mi chiedevo se state lavorando ad altri aggiornamenti! Grazie per il lavoro!

      Ciao Alessandro, io sono un neofita di MSFS20, mi daresti una dritta su come installare questo addons ? Grazie

      devi cercare la cartella community e dipende se l'hai installato su Steam. Su steam ti dico che si trova nella cartella users/appdata (cartella nascosta) / roaming / microsoft flight simiulator / packages. Trovi queste info cercando where to find community folder in msfs su google. Decomprimi il file dell'addon in quella cartella e sei a posto.

    Wonderfull idea and effot but i'm experiencing a lot of issues and glithces with snow terrain in the alps. Could you specify the settings to apply? I play with terrain to max, but LOD to 70 due to CPU bottleneck.

    le mesh sono più precise nell ultimo aggiornamento di MFS, rispetto al tuo.

    improves the mountains only up close. From a distance the mountains by default are better. As you approach the mountains grow and rise with an ugly movement to see.

      try to set Terrain resolution 200.

      Unfortunately i'm having the same issue. Mountains up close tend to load slowly and the seam between LODs is seen constantly even with 200 set and max distance drawing on everything.

      I have the same problem, if you want to fly VFR very close to the mountains it´s ok, otherwise, I prefer the default terrain.

    Thanks a lot for the update!

    I (all European) would be glad if you possibly could also make this kind of great improvement for the rest of Europe (making use of the DEM25 defined by EU-DEM v1.1).
