SceneryTech's Africa Landclass for FSX perfectly demonstrates how SceneryTech hopes to transform the world of Microsoft Flight Simulator, employing innovative development techniques not used anywhere else.

SceneryTech's products fix nearly every issue found in the default landclass, from pervasive desertification of the landscape to missing towns and cities. Most importantly, it will ramp up the realism and make the FS world a more interesting place to fly.

SceneryTech Technology

SceneryTech's landclass employs a number of technical advancements that sets it apart from the default landclass, as well as the competition's:

High-definition data sources

Users of SceneryTech landclass may notice that it contains more terrain variation than the default landclass. This is due in part to the more specific land classification scheme that is used during the development stage. Although the data must eventually be downsampled to conform with the less-detailed land classification scheme used by the Flight Simulator scenery engine, the fact that it is processed from a higher definition data scheme gives us more control over the final representation.

Data synthesis

To make sure the resulting landclass product is as accurate as possible, several complementary data sources are used to weed out any imperfections. Besides the basic land classification maps, we also use climatology maps, political maps, elevation maps, and population maps in conjunction to generate the final product.

Error correction methodology

Given the large size of the world, ensuring that there are no errors can be a daunting task. Rather than simply attempting to fix each individual error as they are found, the entire data processing routine is reviewed and changed as necessary to ensure that the error will not be present in the final product. Despite being largely automated, the scenery is also meticulously crosschecked with real-world photographs and satellite imagery to validate that it remains true-to-life, which is, after all, the primary objective of any of our scenery products.

A key goal of the SceneryTech Landclass is to reduce the "desertification effect" that is prevalent in the default landclass. This occurs in large part from imprecisions in the source data used to process many landclass products. Although we are presented with the same limitations in our source data, we employ special techniques to ensure that the final product uses snow where one should find snow, and desert where one should find desert.

Another objective of our landclass is to improve upon the cities and towns. You will notice more realistic urban extents, as well as smoother transitions between suburban areas and urban centers. Furthermore, hundreds of smaller towns and cities that don't appear in the default landclass will spring into existence.

Enhanced Slope Landclass

As part of the effort to reduce the desertification effect, the entire slope texturing scheme has been revamped to minimize the use of desert textures on slopes. This is achieved through the Enhanced Slope Landclass (ESL), a unique component not found in any other landclass product. The ESL also activates smoother texture transitions between flat surfaces and steep slopes.

I also miss the buildings mentioned. Many of the other buildings looks like those before installing Paris. The only nice thing is La Defence.

10/10 in my book. for someone who lives basically next door to this airport they nailed this one. perfectly designed from the quarry to the north to i-20 running south of the airport, its all accurate as can be. happy someone finally showed my hometown airport some love.

The best I have ever done to my XP11 installation. Great visuals and top performance too. No problems with VR. Forget the other programms which change shaders and clouds (and I tried them all). THIS is the best. The only thing you need is this and Active Sky XP. Even the stock clouds are looking beautiful :-) The night lighting blows you away. Well done Sir.

Great first impressions -
You can tell that years of development went into this mod. First impressions are fantastic! Y-
ou get the winds at the same time you get your take-off clearance from the tower! more controller voices! You can choose between FAA and ICAO terminology! -
Controllers say 'bye' to you as you go from one frequency to the next! Modern callsigns! A-

ller voices can be speeded up and manipulated individually (some default voices speak quicker than others, so this tool lets you manipulate voices to your hearts desire) I stick with values between 20-25% faster which sounds more natural. The installer is easy to use!
