Facade-specific Details

  • Facade Type This is a type 1 facade. A type 1 facade is a series of walls defined by a rectangular grid of adjacent texture squares, while a type 2 facade has its walls defined by a series of 3-d meshes. For more information, see the official documentation.: 1
  • Draped This facade is draped, where every vertex of the facade’s polygon is individually placed on the terrain. For more information, see the official documentation.
  • Ring facade This facade is a ring, where X-Plane® automatically connects the last facade point to the first, closing the loop. For more information, see the official documentation.
  • LOD Range This facade contains multiple Levels of Detail (LODs). To improve frame rate, simpler models are used at further distances. For more information, see the official documentation.: 0m to 4000m (0 miles to 2.49 miles)
