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.

TropicalSim produce solid, mid-range airports and this is another one. Useful addition if you are trying to build us some South American airports
CAPTAIN SIM - C-130 X-PERIENCE ALL-IN-ONE PACK
Deryck
I use the c 130 as a cargo carrier. it is, no doubt ported over from FS9 and has a few idiosyncrasies. However, once I had managed to work out a reliable cold, dark engine start procedure it became very useful in the Air Hauler 2 app. Considering the product's age it looks good and the archaic Smiths autopilot is a change from the modern lazy newer ones. I have learned a lot about the more complex procedures involved in a multi engined a/c when I had to abort an ILS failure and an engine out on approach. (Engineered by a nameless app, I suspect). Worth the roubles!
RICHER SIMULATIONS - CARIBSKY: TBPB 2020 FSX P3D
CRISTIANO
Scenario TBPB 2020 , very detailed of excellent quality , bought for my sim P3D V3.4 after installing it I could not understand after several attempts why it did not appear to me in the sim, as if it did not recognize version 3.4 of P3D and so on msn I wrote the problem who immediately answered me with suggestions, but after trying the suggestions without success , he assisted me remotely with teamviewer and from there began a long patient work with various attempts until he discovered that one of the files did not recognize prop P3D V3.4 , and so he immediately created a fix and updating the RSSCT application from 2.0.1.5 to 2.0.16 and so i totally solved the problem ..... In so many years of simulation the RICHER SIMULATION in addition to making beautiful scenarios very detailed and high quality , has a support of assistance of excellence never seen by any other software house........ Thank you so much Richer Simulation...

nice scenery and my favourite airport love kosice city is very good amazing mountain around the airport 4 stars for terminal texture
PAINTSIM - HD TEXTURE PACK FOR WILCO AIRBUS A340 FS2004
Richard
There's no doubt that these textures are of a high quality and that the author has enhanced the look of the aircraft. However, there's no getting over the fact that it's a lot of money especially compared to the cost of the the aircraft add on itself. It would be helpful if there was an increasing discount based upon the number of 'livery' packages you buy. I'd like to buy more but the cost would compare to buying an aircraft add on which just doesn't sit well with my bank balance. Goo-
d luck and thanks to the author though. He's to be applauded for his efforts and for enhancing our Flight sim experience.

LATINVFR - MADRID LEMD P3DV4
Raul
Consider this one of LatinVFR masterpieces. First, for such a massive airport I have no FPS drop at all (PMDG737 NGXu, 747v3 and Majestic Q400 so far tested). Unlike other sceneries, the parking's with GSX and VDGS are precise, no need to modify parking position manually at all. The gates are number exactly as in Navigraph charts, so choose your parking position in GSX after landing and just follow the charts to your gate(and there are a lot of gates, a lot!). The terminals are beautifully modeled with things that are no even in the description like glass elevators moving. Night illumination while not the best I have seen, its beautiful. Its kind of compatible with ORBX global, I said "kind of" because as you enter the scenery area you can see the change in colors, its subtle but still noticeable. My only complaint if any is that this airport have around 5 towers and you can only get tower view from only one. But that's easily fix with chase plane. I do not feel like taking any stars for the small things I pointed out, so it is a 5 star scenery.
AFLOSIM - CLUJ-NAPOCA AIRPORT FSX P3D
Keith
Stunning little airport! Lots of detail and ground clutter, dirty apron; animated vehicles, birds, people, windsock, etc. The winter ice and snow effects with optional snow piles is excellent. Best feature of all is something I've never seen before in FS - the optional rainbow! (as with some of these things, can be turned on or off via the configurator). Night lighting good. Highly recommended.
