Sceneries for X-Plane 11

    these are the recommended continental packages for X-Plane11, having already VFR-Landmarks and VFR-Aerials inside. Brings fantastic and stunning look to XP11. The quality is depending on available OSM data. The Vegetation Library has to be installed, no other libraries needed.    


    Coverage of continental packages

  • Vegetation Library
    This is the global simHeaven vegetation library, needed for continental packages like X-EUROPE, X-AFRICA, X-AMERICA, X-ASIA or X-AUSTRALIA-OCEANIA. Type of vegetation is set according to 5 different climate zones. The season can be changed via the SAM plugin, also the density could be changed from normal (default) to dense.
  • X-EUROPE Seasons
    This package is changing all buildings of X-EUROPE to a special winter look by using the SAM plugin.
  • X-EUROPE Details
    No extra download available, this package is now included in X-EUROPE 5.7+
    This add-on brings more details to X-EUROPE, maybe useful for helicopter pilots or low flying captains.
  • VFR-Landmarks
    this is already included in the X-… packages, this is for using the standard scenery or HD Mesh Scenery 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. Covers the whole world.
  • VFR-Aerials
    this is already included in the X-… packages, this is for using the standard scenery or HD Mesh Scenery, 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. Covers the whole world.
  • 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. Downloads are available under ‘VFR Addons‘.

Which sceneries are recommended for XP11?

Well, with the release of the X-EUROPE and other packages, I recommend to use only these amazing sceneries and to disable or delete all other things doing nearly the same. To get the best experience, orthos are recommend as they fit perfectly to these packages, see page ‘ortho sceneries’.

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 and the included manual. You should even check if other installed packages are really needed.

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. Continental sceneries have a huge amount of files inside, this may result in a very large loading time if you don’t follow this rule.
