    Good point with the mesh included in the orthophoto. Should have said that orthophoto necessarily includes a mesh (and actually when building ortho4xp scenery, I point the uhd mesh folder so that the overlay is accurately placed) but a mesh does not necessarily includes orthophoto. Actually in my case I had the HD Mesh v4 installed but no orthophoto scenery by ortho4xp for the Colorado. So when I bought Aspen, I wanted it to look like the video so with the photo scenery. By following the procedure as per the manual, I ended up by installing the airport without the photo scenery which is what I did not expect to happen. Actually for higher clarity, you should re edit the manual and add what is published on the forum link posted above which makes more sense to me and is very clear on what one should expect. Thanks for the reply and have a good week end.

    Proof with some screenshot of the manual...I rigorously followed the manual...I have HD mesh V4 so I installed the small file. It does not say that by installing the small file, one will not have the satellite photo scenery. Just modify the manual then. Eventually I don t care since I figured it out by myself. But you will most likely have the question asked quite often then. PS: I don t want to be arrogant but in a sentence, each word is important. I did not say that forum say if you dont want ortho, install file xxx...I said that the MANUAL states if you have hd mesh V4...use the small file.

    I don t know why people do not read what I wrote: I SAID: the manual clearly mentions that if you have your own MESH, then use the small file. They should then say: If you dont want to use orthophoto (or satellite photo scenery), use the small file. The mesh comes with everything that you want except orthophoto. People like me who are used to utilize both mesh and orthophoto can be confused because the manual does not use the correct term. Once again: a MESH is not an ORTHOPHOTO file!!!!!!

    By the way, on x-plane.org store, there is no optional files.

    Solved... Aerosoft does not know the diffetence between ortho photo and mesh. The manual states: if you do have HD mesh already installed...go with the small zip file. But by doing so, one misses all the orthophoto scenery because this latter is contained in the bigger file only. Whether you have or not the HD mesh, one should always go with the biggest file because this is where the ortho photo scenery is. To Aerosoft: A mesh is a file that contains elevation data points in order for xplane to better render elevation points of the terrain, it is nothing to do with satellite photos. Therefore by instructing the customer to go with the small file if one has a hd mesh already installed, one misses the main beautiful aspect of this scenery: the orthophoto textures in ZL17! An ortho or orthophoto file is based on satellite photos in order to render a photo real scenery in xplane. Cheers Stephane

    Is this the official support forum? Is there a way to have a faster answer?

    Dear support team, I've just purchased and installed Aspen for xplane 11. It does not look at all like in this promoting video :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-mnmE3--xU My photo real texture is just around the Airport up to 100m beyond the runway. Beyond that very short limit, it is regular Xplane texture so not at all the 19 000 km² of ortho photo as per indicated in the description of the product. What s wrong? I ve followed the instructions as per the manual: since I have UHD Mesh V4 installed, I've just unzip the AS_KASE-ASPEN-HDMESHV4 zip file in my custom scenery so that I can find now 2 subfolders: Aerosoft - KASE Aspen - Airport Aerosoft - KASE Aspen - Mesh HDv4 My ini file is just exactely how it should like so I know that everything is correctly declared. The other file that it was possible to download from x-plane.org/store was a file name “AS_KASE-ASPEN-ORTHOMESH-REQUIRED-FILES.zip" that I have not downloaded since this one contains the mesh file that I already have (UHD Mesh V4) and the size of this file (i.e. 6 Gigs) effectively correspond to the UHD Mesh V4 file that I already have. Am I right or does the “AS_KASE-ASPEN-ORTHOMESH-REQUIRED-FILES.zip" contain ortho photo scenery as well explaining why I don't see it yet? Thanks for your help. Regards Stéphane
