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.

SCENIC ROUTES - LJLJ - LJUBLJANA AIRPORT MSFS

I recently purchased Ljubljana Airport and I absolutely love everything about it. For me, a sim airport must feel alive with realism and detail all over inside and out. Scenic Routes have certainly hit the mark when it comes to meeting and exceeding my expectations as an MSFS 2020 simmer! The terminals are fully finished on the inside and are highly detailed featuring double sided green tinted glass and ceramic tiles that look as if they just received a fresh coat of wax and polished to a high gloss! All the buildings are delightfully textured in high resolution with attention to detail. The static helicopters and other aircraft have been beautifully modeled as well. Two of the features I specially liked is the animated Go-Kart track. This adds a special feel to the airport. My cat was glued to my monitor, her head moving and following the little go-karts as they raced around the track! What was especially nice about the track is that the go-karts go away when the track is closed for the evening and return when the track reopens at dawn! I also really like the animated flags that respond to the force of the wind in similar fashion as the windsock. The airport lighting looks glorious at night and is highly realistic from the runway and taxiway lights to the lighting of the inside of the terminals and aprons. The Visual Docking Guidance System (VDGS) is a special treat as very few airports have incorporated this feature. It is visually appealing and fully functional. Th-
e animated jetways also have beautiful tinted green double-sided glass inside and out. The control tower also has this type of glass and is beautifully modeled on the inside. A virtual airport must make you feel like you are there and this one is no exception. It truly hits the mark. There are many more beautiful details out there for you to explore. If you are a simmer who wants to enjoy the scenery after a long flight, this one will definitely do it for you. Ljubljana Airport is now in my top ten favorites airports for MSFS 2020. I most heartedly recommend it!

Several AP functions not implemented, MSFS-version seems more sofisticated. -
You should probably wait for the P3D-version of the Concorde to be updated before purchasing.

I must agree with the previous disappointing reviews; I only but add that there's a FPS terrible decay; maybe theres' some incompatibility with a freeway Shenzhen city addon (from Flightsim.to). Hope in some update.

Really well simulated aircraft. Feeling on the ground and in the air is excellent, sounds are amazing (especially engine sounds), and the tablet makes fuel and W&B changes more easy. Good integration with PMS50 GTN750 and the only improvement that can be implemented is working CBs and maybe an oil level/refill function.

I honestly advise to buy addons "traffic in sight". These addons really enliven flights in the sim and I can't imagine flying without them.
