Add ‘Real Scenery’ to FSX: Steam Edition

We are pleased to bring four scenery packs to Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition, working in partnership with Just Flight and enhancing your English and Welsh terrain in the game.

Just Flight’s VFR Real Scenery uses 25cm aerial photographic data of England and Wales to create high resolution scenery optimised for 1m display in FSX: Steam Edition. These high resolution digital aerial images transform FSX: Steam Edition into the real landscape you can see from the air. With brilliant resolution, night lighting and water effects, this scenery really is as real as it gets!

Screenshot 02VFR stands for Visual Flight Rules – this is how pilots navigate when they aren’t using complex instruments. They look at a map and then pinpoint landmarks on the ground to work out their course and position. It’s the most common form of recreational flying undertaken in the UK, but to do this in a flight simulator requires scenery that is exactly the same as the real landscape. VFR Real Scenery is an amazing piece of software that does just that.

Fly over England and Wales in FSX: Steam Edition using VFR Real Scenery and you will see the same view you’d get from a real aircraft. You can see the real countryside from the air and pinpoint every key landmark. They’re all featured – streets, buildings, rivers, lakes, reservoirs – and all at extremely high resolution and detail.

As well as accurate scenery, the VFR Real Scenery series includes night lighting effects customised for extra realism and superb 9.6m mesh which hugely improves the accuracy of the relief – the ups and downs of the terrain have never been so precise! Main water features are individually rendered with Flight Simulator water effects so that you can land a seaplane on the lakes and rivers!

Screenshot 07There are four volumes of Just Flight’s VFR Real Scenery series for FSX: Steam Edition. Installing all four volumes will give you complete coverage of England and Wales:

  • Volume 1 – South East England
  • Volume 2 – Central & Southern England
  • Volume 3 – Wales & South West England
  • Volume 4 – Northern England
