Sceneries for X-Plane 11
for standard scenery or HD Mesh Scenery v3 to improve the look of standard XP with generic 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) and unchanged name. Download covers the entire world.
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.
- VFR Add-ons
available for Germany and some European countries these add-ons bring objects from the SketchUp 3D warehouse to your scenery, mainly sightseeing and other remarkable objects. A big win for VFR flyers, best on higher performant computers. Downloads are available under ‘VFR Addons‘.
This scenery replaces the forests of XP11 with forests, orchards, vineyards, tree lines and trees derived from OSM data. For the objects, original forests and trees of XP11 are used, so there is no additional library necessary.
Best for use of photo sceneries, but even with standard scenery this could be a win, try out and see. Original forests of XP11 are excluded for all covered tiles, but autogen trees in cities still remain visible.
No additional library needed, should be compatible with XP10 too.
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 for XP11?
This depends on the sceneries installed:
- using standard or HD Mesh Scenery
the new VFR-Landmarks add-ons are a must-have
VFR-Addons for high-performance computers
- using photo sceneries
w2xp sceneries are recommended as they perfectly fit to photo sceneries, available at http://simheaven.com/?page_id=3260
Forests sceneries update your forests to actual data
- 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. 😉
