What single scenery addon would you recommend?

Recommended Posts

Guest shanwick

I do a lot of flying up and down the UK and then up and down Norway using the Dreamfleet Archer - I'm very definitely a GA man :-) Sometimes I think that in the real world with my sort of income I would hardly be able to afford to fly at all, let alone up and down anywhere. So it got me thinking about where I might fly if I could only afford to go up for the occational local flight for about an hour.What single GA scenery addon, payware or freeware, would you go for which, in your opinion, would give the best eye candy and immersion factor.David

Well that depends.If you're looking for *airport* sceneries, France VFR is hard to beat. Especially the Britanny Islands collection gives you several incredible, detailed airports and surroundings for a good price: http://www.francevfr.com/scenes.htmYou can buy at e.g. Simware.The North American equivalent are the airports by Georender, escpeailly Orcas Island.Now there are also several actual landscape sceneries that I recommend, being a VFR addict myself. In particular VFR Photographic Scenery England and Wales+VFR Terrain, and Switzerland Pro. Those provide a much bigger area to fly over but with slightly less detail and no autogen (though many areas of England and Wales are being manually populated with trees and houses). There are others as well like Real Germany, Spain VFR etc.For North America, there's the Misty Fjords scenery, Megascenery and the recently released VFR Photographic Scenery USA which seems to look better than Megascenery.

If I had to recommend just one scenery enhancement add-on it would be ActiveSky, hands down.

Yes the "sky scenery" is just as important as the ground scenery. The FSW clouds are another must-have in that category.

I just wondered why no one mentioned Scenery Germany 2 :)All you need for VFR flying for a large area and a lot of detailled airfields, too. What more do you need?Sasa
