You may already be familiar with the work of Andras Fabian of alpilotx.net, but to quote the press release received from hos earlier today, “After the successful release of “HD Mesh Scenery v3” last December, the new “UHD Mesh Scenery v1” tries to push the limits of the X-Plane 10 scenery engine even further.”

Also new today is the latest from FranceVFR – HD Photoscenery for the Lorraine area of France.
