SceneryTech's North America 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.

TECHNOBRAIN - FS ADD-ON COLLECTION KOBE AIRPORT FSX P3D
Bailey
Technobrain Kobe is stunning! It's the first product i've purchased from Technobrain and I was not disappointed! Kobe is a great little airport. It's overshadowed by Kansai but it has some really good routes and the modelling and attention to detail at the airport is really stunning. I appreciate the extra work modelling parts of Kobe City and the bridge as it really adds life to the area. I look forward to further releases!
TECHNOBRAIN - FS ADD-ON COLLECTION NEW CHITOSE AIRPORT FSX P3D
Bailey
Technobrain Shin-Chitose airport is a great product for the price! Although not having SODE jetways is a bit of a pain the scenery makes up for it with the wonderful lighting at night and overall very nice product design. I really enjoyed landing and flying just before touch down to have the approach lighting system below me light up my cockpit was truely stunning. I can't wait to fly a lot in winter and really experience a winter in Shin-Chitose!

I just checked back and saw they actually read their reviews and therefor added the yellow tower in. Good job guys, it‘s great to see a developer react to criticism. I‘m really considering to buy this airport now. Keep up the good work :)

Wow Wow Wow! Viva la France! Stunni-

Excellent scenery! The night lighting makes use of the very best XP has to offer. I upgraded to V2 and love it even more than the original which was already hard to do. I an a US flyer but have been gravitating more towards flying in Europe and this is one of my favorite destinations now. EBBR is a must have in European sceneries. JustSim should consider some US airports as well. Would love to see that.

Review system - Intel i9-9900k CPU overclocked; 32GB Ram; 1TB SSD; GeForce RTX 2080Ti 11GB Video card; Windows 10 64-bit Home Edition. This is a review of the SHOREHAM, BRIGHTON CITY AIRPORT (EGKA) scenery enhancement for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020. Created by long time developer, Raimond Taburet, this is a small but significant enhancement that improves the Asobo/MS default scenery of this picturesque little airport located on the English South Coast, very close to the South Downs National Park. If you are a fan of VFR flying in the beautiful English countryside, then this is for you! Its is not a greatest package and certainly not in the Orbx league - yet! But if you live in Sussex and know this area then you will appreciate this lovely little gem of a location in which to go flying. NOTE - Myself and one other purchaser had an installation issue where installing the scenery folders into the COMMUNITY subfolder, as is the usual practice, did NOT work. The simulation loaded 100% but refused to open at the airport! After contacting Raimond by email, the response was very quick - and by installing the scenery into the OFFICIAL\ONESTO-
RE subfolder and NOT the COMMUNITY folder, solved the problem. Thank you Raimond! On Sunday 27th September, I release a video review of this scenery on my YouTube channel - virtualairlinep-
ilot - but for now, I rate this scenery as very good. It completely redoes the ADUR River to make it look as it should and the airport layout, runways and taxiways and signage is also vastly improved. Recommended! - Lee James, West Sussex UK

Would like to give 5 stars because if you install it as your very first payware airport/scenery-
/feature product it works and looks great. Unfortunately like other users on their forum i have now lost all buildings in P3D. Reinstallin-
g does not remedy this problem and their web help does not fix the problem. I bought this in May 2020 and cannot recommend it if you have gsx (they have listed this program as the problem) as their object placer dll does not work with it. If they actually fix this one day for P3D then please disregard this review.
AVIAJAM PRODUCTION - SAINT-PETERSBURG LANDMARKS - MSFS
Juraj
It is the first time when Sank Petersburg has good representation from immersion in the simulator. There is a great model of ULLI Pulkovo airport with a very accurate and excellent modeled surrounding of the airport for P3DV from Digital Design but unfortunately not the city. I spent 5 years in this great city full of architectural monuments, flying there many times so was very curious how will look on MSFS 2020. So the city regarding building structure looks very well and I was even able to find my university and dormitory, but the center part where on the banks of the river Neva are the main historical architectural buildings were very artificial generic buildings and the Petroplavskia fortress was one big cubic form. So the product Saint Petersburg landmarks change the view on the center of the city in much better immersion. Of course, there are still missing well-known buildings mainly around the Nevskij prospect , the main street of the city , also cruiser Avrora , but hope the authors will continue to add more monuments , buildings, and bridges. Yes, textures are not the best and this could be improved. Hope also that the authors will add great palaces in the surrounding of Sank Petersburg as Petergorf and Carskoie Selo. If this will happen the product will have a lot of supporters because Sankt Petersburg is one of the most beautiful architectural cities in the world. My marking is somewhere between 3.5 and 4 ,now I give as the first good attemept 4.
