On the eve of the Flight Sim World Early Access release I am pleased to announce that the current version of Toposim Continents works as is in Dovetail Games Flightsim World.
However, Flightsim World has no in-game Scenery Library, so in order to use Toposim Continents in FSW the end user must edit the scenery.cfg file located in C:\ProgramData\Dovetail Games\FSW.
First, make a copy of scenery.cfg
Open scenery.cfg in Notepad and scroll to the bottom
Paste below the last entry and edit thusly:
Title= TOPOSIM Africa (for example)
Local=[path to Africa files, i.e., c:\TOPOSIM\Continents\Africa, or wherever you installed on your local system]
Repeat process for each individual Toposim Continent you may have, using the above example, incrementing [Area.xxx]
That’s it. Upon starting FSW you will see the usual “Building Database for new scenery files” message, and when FSW loads you will be using Toposim Continents terrain mesh.
Stay tuned for further details over the coming days.

Toposim Continents Russia Caucasus coverage
Coverage of Russia has been expanded with an update to Volga Federal District, and new releases of Northwest Federal District and Ural Federal District. These have been added to the Russia Caucasus Bundle, and in turn folded into the European Continent Bundle. Previous users of any of those products may simply log into the Toposim Distribution Center, click My Account, then the download tab to find and download the new files.
Please note that areas south of 60 degrees North are compiled from fresh SRTM 1-arc-second source data. North of 60 degrees North is compiled from 3-arc-second data as a placeholder until new 5m source data drops, at which time there will be a significant updates.
Next up is Russia Siberia and Far East, the last two regions remaining. Getting ever-closer to full planetary coverage . . .
