The team of openVFR has now finished the development a new scenery series for placing buildings taken from OpenStreetmap to Microsoft Flightsimulator X. The new scenery packages named 'openVFR Buildings' will add thousands of generic autogen buildings to your flightsim. This will improove the flight experience dramatically as these houses will be placed in 3D at their real world positions.

"By adding buildings at their real world positions on top of our existing sceneries you can really fly over realistic and fascinating landscapes. We recommend to install also 'openVFR Terrain' in order to improove topographical information like roads, railways, river, lakes, coastlines, forest, etc. You could even add more special objects like power generators, towers, stadions by installing 'openVFR Objects'. Together with 'openVFR Mesh' (our scenery to improove the shape of hills and mountains) the user now has a huge choice to select the level of detail for each country according to his computer performance.", so M. Freyt from openVFR "But openVFR Buildings can be also used standalone with other vector sceneries or even on top of any other external photosceneries. This is all in all very flexible for the user."

For now the following sceneries are available for download at www.openVFR.de:

 

openVFR Buildings, Europe, Germany

 

openVFR Buildings, Europe, Austria

 

openVFR Buildings, Europe, Switzerland

 

openVFR Buildings, Europe, Norway*

If you would like to see some visual impressions of all openVFR sceneries you can find many screens taken from Microsoft Flightsimulator X at http://www.openvfr.de/facebook.

* Regarding Norway, Finland and Sweden we are happy to let you know, that we finally offer openVFR Terrain & openVFR Objects, which was missing for quite a long time.


** Regaring United Kingdom & Ireland a new version of openVFR Terrain & openVFR Objects is available now. Together with openVFR BUildings it will be much more realistic than the current version.
