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.

Great thought-out routes. Tons of sight seeing. Will be way better once the developer updates these into Bush Trips (something they said they are planning to do)...
UK2000 SCENERY - LUTON 2020HD MSFS
THOMAS
This UK 2000 'Port Over' offer's an Accurate Rendition of Luton but the cost of the Airport is excessive and for this reason. In it's past FSX and XPlane incarnations Luton and other Offerings by UK 2000 demonstrated the Excellent Technical Abilities of it's Creator using the SDK provided for those Sims. Now that we are in the World of MFS 2020 it would be great to see this Talented Company take advantage of the MFS 2020 SDK and develop some Ground Breaking Renditions for the Community. I am a Long Term Customer of this Company but will not purchase from them until they provide us with Airports that are worthy of their Talent and our new Sim.

TFDI DESIGN - PACX
Sergey
Great addon adding immersion for your flight. You can focus on proper flying, not serving meals, which is great (all this stuff is fully automatic). Career mode is fantastic. You can use PACX as a logbook. Moreover, you can print or save as a PDF file flying report with data from a destination to the landing rate—FSpassange-

I have to echo some previous reviews. The glideslope for 34L seems completely off, and the overall the scenery looks pretty bland at night, and the surrounding photo base doesn't blend well at all. I'm sure DD will address this with patches, but until then, I can't give this more than 3 stars. Definitely seems rushed.

I have virtually all your airports on X-Plane & no break for us & also 2d trees ? Please remove them & get the tree in the picture that's in the middle of the ramp to the terminal Building off. Trees don't grow on concrete walkways ! I am happy to see you guys in the arena but come on if you want serious business.

Great little jet, fun stable and seemingly realistic - smooth frame rates like default aircraft in 2020 ... however lacks good sounds, only an engine, and no other sounds exist. still a blast and well worth the price I hope somebody will add sounds
REALWORLDSCENERY - KODIAK ALASKA PADQ MSFS
Rob
To be honest I really like this scenery. It's situated on a beautiful spot on Kodiak Island, so default surroundings are already beautiful but the developer(s) did a nice job on the airport itself with it's realistic buildings and nice atmosphere. I hope they do more Alaskan airports. I already have Nome as well and that's lovely too, although the they could have included more surrounding area into the their scenery. but that's for an another review.
