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.

ZINERTEK - ENHANCED AIRPORT GRAPHICS MSFS

I normally do not write reviews here but if the fresh looking default rwy textures are one of your biggest pet peeves get this! What a difference!
NEXTGEN SIMULATIONS - BANDEIRANTE MSFS
jeremy
I love this Aircraft. I have downloaded the latest update which is V102. I am still having the issue were I cannot see anyone in the same Aircraft, nor can they see me (MSFS2020). Have notified NEXTGEN and they are working on it to get it resolved. If you are flying with others online you will not see them. If anyone has a work around to fix this, would be nice to know. Have given it a 3 star for now but once it is fixed, I would be happy to give more.
TABURET - BRANSCOMBE MSFS
Paul
A nice small airstrip. I bought this primarily because I grew up nearby in the Axe Valley and Branscombe is the perfect place to fly out of when I want to explore my old haunts in MSFS. This is a significant upgrade from the stock scenery, which only has the generic grass strip. It seems to be FPS friendly as well. Be sure to check out the real airfield’s website that details the noise sensitive areas and the modified circuit pattern designed to avoid the most sensitive areas (which makes things a lot more interesting).. -

SOUTH OAK CO - PORT ALLEN HAWAII MSFS
Julio
True to the actual airport as seen in Google maps. I try to fly real time and weather and was challenged with the 208 caravan and a low cloud, rainy approach. Also a helicopter port and we have our first helos to try out over Kaua'i. Real attention to detail. Looking forward to more
SOUTH OAK CO - KALAUPAPA HAWAII MSFS
Julio
MSFS is for VFR flying and this is an intimate and accurate representation of this remote and famous corner of Molokai. Looking forward to more from South Oak Co.

Would give it 5 stars but missing runways for arrivals. 36L-17R. 39Euros it doesn't make sense they haven't updated this.
TABURET - RANGER CREEK MSFS
alexis
I give it 1 star for the following reasons... Tex-
tures on objects are very outdated, looks like an FSX scenery. Fence is not lined up properly in many place, very poor object placement. Fen-
ce also looks really poor, without any design for a slope terrain. Unles-
s there is a new and fixed version (I have 1.1) I would rather use a much better and free scenery for Ranger creek.... Which I have switch to despite owning this scenery.
