UK VFR scenery

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I am hoping to get some decent photoscenery for the UK and came across this:




I have used the simheaven stuff but unfortunately the tiles don't match up very well. Is this any better? Is it OrbX quality? I ask this, because it's quite old now and I've not seen it talked about much.


Hope you can advise!

No,  Its a much blander in color then Orbx,  But i like it,  I have all 4 Volumes.  Its expensive though but works perfect. 


The thing about Photoscenery is, It hides (Covers)  all the Default roads and lights, so you wont have Night Lights, 




You can pop Treelines_Farms in there to give you some nice trees and also pop Default England X-Planes Buildings & Roads to give you your roads and night lights back


Day time..........

It's pretty good, but out of date and the colours are a bit strange and dark. I have since replaced it with Ortho4XP photoscenery which I found had better colours and was sharper. You can use it or Ortho4XP photoscenery in combination with GB Pro (http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/34232-gb-pro-v2-detailed-vfr-scenery-for-great-britain/) which will add in all the objects, roads, houses and forest and this should give you some very accurate and good scenery for all of England, Scotland and Wales.
