Austria West HD

Recommended Posts

In August 2016 we were told that a release of this scenery was imminent, then we heard that there will be a delay of a few days. Since then no further communication. If one sent the developer a question about the release date, one did not get any answer, nothing. Now, in early December 2016, it finally became available. From a marketing point of view, a complete, utter nightmare!! If it will not sell well, the developer can only blame one person: himself. And at €52 it is also quite pricy. On top, it comes with just one season. Three very valid reasons NOT to buy it. Why did I buy it? Because of this:

Looks really great!

 

What are your experiences with FlyTampa Vienna, JustSim Klagenfurt and Linz, Digitaldesign Salzburg and FSDG Graz? Are they compatible with Austrian HD?

Unfortunately I can't tell, because I have none of them. But I trust that the developer of Austria HD has made sure that his product is compatible with all of them. I remember that at one point he said that the product will be delayed because some new airports have been introduced that he needs to adjust his scenery to.

Sorry to sound clueless, but WHO is the developer?  I looked through the posts twice and there was no mention of who is selling this.

bernd,

I am in the same boat. Considering the purchase, but scared by the price.

Looking at the second shot, I was wondering if you happen to have Digital Design LOWS and, if yes, how does this blend with Austria HD West. It also includes a nice photoscenery of Salzburg city and "Festung" and I am wondering if they somehow overlap or create any elevation problem.

Still on the fence, then. Incidentally, you have by far the best clouds I have ever seen in any ESP-based product for years.

I think I'll wait until this becomes available at the Aerosoft shop, with a download price of 44.50 euros.

There is an pack offer for East and West at the developers website.

Being Austrian, I own all austrian airports. They all fit perfectly well with the photoscenery - for Vienna, you will have to move some files, but it's well explained on their site and done in a minute. It's important to set the date to summer, though, if you have the scenery activated and fly in winter you will have snowy airports in green landscape.

 

The quality of the austrian photoscenery is way, way above Germany VFR. Highly recommended.

Thank you for your input.

Can you confirm this also applies to Digital Design LOWS (see my post #21)?

I already picked up Austria East last week from Aerosoft, when it was on sale for 20% off.  :smile:

 

So will just be patient for the West portion...amazing screenshots indeed!

Thanks a lot gents for your comments. Whatever you see in my screenies is default Austria HD West with no other add-ons. But as Darem already said I also suspect that everything will work nicely together. The scenery and the autogen is just fantastic. When flying over it I believe that every single small village has for example its own uniquely designed church.

Guys, one very simple question. Can you tell me how big the Austria Professional HD (West) package is?

 

EDIT
After seeing shots from Fuschl and Sankt Wolfgang im Salzkammergut, where I was last summer, I am afraid I am almost stepping down from the fence and sold to this product. Hope my wife will never look at my card statement.

Once installed, we are talking 25 Gig. But I have to say, it is worth it. The more I fly there, and I have done a lot of flying there in the last few days, the more I appreciate the developer's work. The attention to detail is just amazing. I have never seen that before. It looks like that every small village has its own dedicated unique church. Btw, there are a few things our wives do not want to know. But as this is an extremely hot topic, I will not elaborate futher  :wink:

Austria HD West (download version) is now available at the Aerosoft shop, for 44.50 euros.  Just picked up my copy there today.

 

The West download size is 12.4 GB.  Similar to the Austria East download size which was about 12 GB.
