XP11 Sceneries

Please read the information below and the ReadMe of downloaded files carefully as it helps me to give a better support to users having real problems. Refer also to FAQ95 % of the normal questions are answered below, so don’t miss to read it. 😉

Sceneries for X-Plane 11

  • VFR-Landmarks
    for standard scenery or HD Mesh Scenery v3 installed to improve the look of standard XP with visual objects like chimneys, towers, churches, castles and ruins, wind turbines, solar panel fields, flags, lighthouses, windmills, cranes, water towers, tanks, piers and boats, seamarks.
    Needs OpenSceneryX library in the same directory (Custom Scenery folder). You may download per continent or entire world.
  • VFR-Aerials
    generated from the OSM aerial ways like gondolas and lifts, for those who want to add these objects, e.g. helicopter pilots flying in the Alps.
    No additional library needed.
  • w2xp_Europe_net_XP11
    Normal flyers don’t need it!! It’s an unprocessed scenery generated with a beta tool having experimental status for roads! Recommend only together with w2xp sceneries, otherwise you have autogen objects on streets etc..
    It replaces your network like roads, railways, power lines, gondolas, drag lifts etc. with network derived from newest osm data, all network from sceneries below is disabled.
    No additional library needed.

Which sceneries are recommended?

This depends on the X-Plane version and sceneries installed:

  • using standard or HD Mesh Scenery
    the new VFR-Landmarks add-ons are a must-have
  • using photo sceneries
    w2xp sceneries are recommended as they perfectly fit to photo sceneries, availabe at http://simheaven.com/?page_id=3260
  • helicopter pilots flying in the mountains
    you should additionally install the VFR-Aerials to cover gondolas, lifts etc.

Getting the best performance

Having the right order is very important to have the best result. For the order of sceneries in scenery_packs.ini, please refer to FAQ.

Disable the antivirus programm for all paths of X-Plane and all sceneries for reading. Make an exception for file protection (read mode) to exclude all paths. w2xp sceneries have a huge amount of files inside, this may result in a very large loading time if you don’t follow this.


If you like the sceneries and my work, buy me a beer – or get me drunk. 😉
