SceneryTech's Europe 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.

Improved 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 Improved Slope Landclass (ISL), a unique component not found in any other landclass product. The ISL also activates smoother texture transitions between flat surfaces and steep slopes.

Customer Reviews
S-DESIGN - SHARM EL-SHEIKH HESH MSFS
Alexander
The graphics overall aren't the best quality. No lighting of an evening time other than runway and taxi lights. But worst of all, is that the ramp by the terminal is like a rally course, incredibly uneven surface surrounding the terminal! In desperate need of an update and some serious work being done to it to warrant it being worth the price tag you set for it. Disappointed is an understatement.
RARA-AVIS SIMS - ZIPPY SPORT MSFS
David
This is an update to my earlier (1 star) review. The developer has now responded to my issue, giving great helpful support and a new file to try. All issues are now fixed and it's a great little product.
SIMBITWORLD - A PILOT'S LIFE - CHAPTER 2
Sebastian
This is the best carreer addon currently existing for MSFS. (May 23rd, 2022)
SOUTH OAK CO - FS BIRDS - EUROPE CENTRAL MSFS
Stefan
Very good addon, brings life to the game. At the airport there are always birds sitting around and at the gate there is suddenly a shadow, you look in the air, no is not a plane but a bird (smile). In VFR low-level flight you meet flocks of birds that brings additional life in the air. Very nice to observe when you go on a discovery trip with the helicopter.
ILLUMINATORS - SALT LAKE CITY NIGHT ENHANCED MSFS
Chris
Adds a little color but overall way too orange. It just looks off and I prefer default lighting. I've flown over SLC at night many times, it's not anything like this. Stick with default.
MFSG - KING KHALID OERK FSX P3D3-5 MSFS FS2004
alex
the night texture looks good on msfs but the rest needs work the models and day time textures need work
INIBUILDS - INISCENE BUFFALO NIAGARA KBUF MSFS
Alui
The scenery is very detailed and very performance-fri-
endly, highly recommended to everyone!
MAGMEXICO - MONTERREY AIRPORT INTERNATIONAL FSX P3D
William
It works without any issues in my P3dv5. It is a little more dated than MMGL which I also own. My only complaint is that it is priced approximately 35% higher than it's MSFS counterpart.
CHUDOBA DESIGN - VÁCLAV HAVEL AIRPORT PRAGUE (LKPR) FOR X-PLANE 11
Daniel
ChudobaDesign's rendition of Václav Havel Airport Prague is not up to par with modern payware standards. The modelling is lackluster, the concrete textures have gaps so wide you could practically climb inside them, the buildings have little to no detail on the other side of the terminal away from the airside part of things and the texturing of the buildings generally makes them look like paintings. It seems as though the developer hasn't got much of a regard for immersion as we can find immersion-break-
ing details like the "Nothing interesting to be seen here" sign on the viewing terrace next to apron J. A Czech developer made this, which, if I'm going to be honest, is an embarassment considering it's their home country's most important airport. The pricing is by far the worst part of this product. Whether the developer underestimated the work required to get this scenery out and resolved to just finishing it as quickly as possible or whether it was something else that led to the end result being as it is, 30 euros for this is an insult to anyone with standards.
VIET SIM SCENERY - VVNB NOI BAI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT NEWLY REBUILDT FSX P3D1-5
Marian
Bought it, installed it and fell in love with it. Really awesome and detailed rendition of this important an "must have" airport in Vietnam. For the price you pay, the delivery exceeds expectations! -
Ground textures and airport buildings are very good and it is super nice to fly in and out from this scenery. The DEV was super polite and responsive when I had a question on how to install from the RAR/ZIP file (but I did not look into the .txt so my mistake). Great customer support, he even offered me a video call to help me with installation. Wow. I fly the 744 Freighter into and out from Hanoi, so the scenery and all that goes with it, it totally accurate! 5--
Star Developer and scenery. Hopefully, we will see more and more sceneries in the future from Viet Sim Scenery.
