Compatibility with X-Plane 11

x-plane11

The public beta of X-Plane 11 has arrived, first flights and tests show that all sceneries and libraries available here on this website are fully compatible with X-Plane 11.

All you have to do is simply copy your sceneries and libraries from “…/X-Plane 10/Custom Scenery/ “to “…/X-Plane 11/Custom Scenery/” and after starting XP11, adjust the entries of scenery_packs.ini to the recommended order.

Have fun using SimHeaven sceneries and X-Plane 11! 🙂

Europe mixed version

Only for Europe is a mixed version of w2xp Europe available. This is the recommended version for Europe.

It is a mix between the normal and the osm version of Europe April 2016. Osm version is used in a rectangular of +44-007 (southwest of France) and +54+016 (northeast of Germany), where OSM data is pretty good. Outside of the rectangular is the normal version with smart exclusions and additional autogen objects used. This will be the future version of Europe.
