Here are some images of what ZL13 looks like from 39000ft:

And from 15000ft, roughly 10000ft AGL:

You can see ZL13 isn't really made for low level VFR type flying, but if you're going to be on autopilot high up in the sky, it's perfect. From 20000ft and above, I cant see much of a difference between ZL13 and ZL16/18 for that matter.

What I would suggest is that if you intend on flying lower than 20000ft, stick to ZL16.

Here's an example of what ZL18 looks like at low level around Cape Point.

Everything in the image is the standard XPlane 11 plus Ortho.

Hi,

I thought I'd show what it looks like when you run out of ZL13 tiles and cross back over into the standard X-Plane scenery at 60,000ft. This is somewhere over Northern Namibia.
