New add-on for standard XP11/10

Introducing the new ‘w2xp_Europe_objects VFR-Landmarks’ which is meant for XP11 users (and XP10 too) with standard scenery or HD Mesh Scenery v3 installed to improve the look of XP with visual objects like chimneys, radio masts and communication towers, churches, mosques, wind turbines, solar panel fields, flags, lighthouses, windmills, cranes, water towers, tanks, observation towers, campaniles, cooling towers, piers and boats.

It doesn’t influence performance, files installed are only 117 MB, 43 MB to download. It uses a library, so changing or adding objects is fast and easy. Refer to the ReadMe if you want to do so. Download at http://simheaven.com/?page_id=14813
