Details

openVFR Terrain is replacing vector data by still using the FSX default textures. Also additional vector data for roads, rivers, streams, shorelines etc. are added. The result is a much more detailed terrain representation.

In more detail openVFR Terrain will update the following terrain data:

  • landuse information (city areas, like forests, vineyard, industrial use, military,...)
  • leisure information (like park, golf courses, stadium,...)
  • natural information (like wood, marsh, wetland, woods,...)
  • railways (different types) - roads (like highways/motorways, living streets, service, tracks, places,... including traffic)
  • waterways (river, river banks, stream, drain, canal, basin, lakes,isles....)
  • coastlines

Features for version 2011/02:

This new openVFR version (2011/02) is based on a snapshot of Openstreetmap data for 2011. It is very sophisticated in representing city areas. Also isles in rivers and lakes are added. Regaring roads the traffic was optimized. Furthermore a lot of bugs of the older versions are solved (refer below).

  • good presentation of city areas
  • detailed structures for isles in rivers and lakes
  • freeway traffic for roads

ISSUES KNOWN (version: 2011/02):

  • water polylines from Openstreetmap are not included in the scenery, still investigating
  • Attention: In some dense city areas, traffic could be very complex. Make sure to use FSX settings accordingly to your hardware.
