Hello everyone.

I've just downloaded the minor bodies pack from official Orbiter's homepage and the Io's folder contains a elev.tree archive. Should I expect for terrain or am I wrong? Because Io remains flat to me even after installed it.

Thanks!

My guess is that there are only certain areas that have terrain, such as key mountains and valleys. I'll have to check myself since I have them installed.

Io definitely has some bumps. The view when starting this scenario should show them:
Code:
BEGIN_DESC
Io terminator

yes! It's appearing here. Thank you! I supposed that elevation data covered whole Io. Well, i guess this is the same for Enceladus, right?

Well, now i am concerned about Mercury High Resolution meshes and elevation. They are missing (but no CTD) and I followed the instalation instructions from Orbiter web site. I don't know what to do. Are these meshes and elevation just for beta version?

Hmm...so you have
- Textures/Mercury/Archive/Elev.tree
- Textures/Mercury/Archive/Surf.tree
and (the changed)
- Config/Mercury.cfg
...that should make it happen.
Your general setup (Orbiter_NG.cfg) should be O.K. as you saw the Io elevations.

Could you check the md5 sums of your files? Some people had difficulties to get the files right. If they are O.K. however I am out of ideas :shrug:
But someone else usually has the right idea here in the forum :idea:

Easter-Holidays however might render this forum less crowded than usual.

I've re-installed Orbiter and, for some reason, now it's working. Thank you for help me :thumbup:!!
