Very easy download and automatic installation ! Fully compatible with FSX SP1 - SP2 - Acelleration.

Juneau was named after gold prospector Joe Juneau, though the place was for a time called Rockwell and then Harrisburg (after Juneau's co-prospector, Richard Harris—several books credit the Tlingit Chief Kowee with showing these prospectors where the gold was). The Tlingit name of the town is Dzántik 'i Héeni "river where the flounders gather", and Auke Bay just north of Juneau proper is called Aak'w "little lake" in Tlingit. The Taku River, just south of Juneau, was named after the cold t'aakh wind, which occasionally blows down from the mountains. Downtown Juneau sits at sea level, with tides averaging 16 feet (4.9 m), below steep mountains about 3,500 to 4,000 feet (1,200 m) high. Atop these mountains is the Juneau Icefield, a large ice mass from which about 30 glaciers flow; two of these, the Mendenhall Glacier and the Lemon Creek Glacier, are visible from the local road system; the Mendenhall glacier has been generally retreating; its front face is declining both in width and height.

The current Alaska State Capitol is an office building in downtown Juneau, originally built as the Federal and Territorial Building in 1931. Originally housing federal government offices, the federal courthouse, and a post office, it became the home of the Alaska Legislature and the offices for the governor of Alaska and lieutenant governor of Alaska. Through the years, there has been discussion on relocating the seat of state government and building a new capitol, without significant development.

This is my first experience with buying payware scenery. Could not pass this one up, as I live in Juneau, and am really fond of flying in Southeast Alaska.

I have had a mixed experience, probably due to my unfamiliarity with scenery.

First let me say that the scenery package is "photoreal". I can literally do the "I can see my house from here" bit. A Winter texture would have been nice, but Summer is so much prettier here that it is not a huge issue.

Perhaps my settings are messed up somehow, but with this scenery I get "waves" where in FSX default scenery there was water, but now is land. I had hoped that this scenery would fix a few other problems with the default Juneau as well. In default FSX the "Alaska Capitol is right next to the Airport, instead of 8 miles away in downtown Juneau. This was not changed with the release. Additionally, the FSX default roads are gone, but there is still traffic on them. I am getting cars and trucks running straight up the side of mountains.

Finally, I know that this is not terrain mesh, but there are areas that are cliffs that should not be.

I would have hoped that some of these fixtures would have been fixed in a package of this price. Overall, though I am very happy with how much more fun it makes VFR flight around my "home" airport.

good scenery but is the only airport I've installed and had issues with FPS
ROLAND LABORIE - VOUGHT CRUSADER F8-E MSFS

Having owned this since almost day 1, I wanted to hold off reviewing until I saw how the patch cycle went. Having owned the BN-2 and L-19 whose packages started off being pure garbage but several patches later have become very competent models, I know initially rough planes can be great. Being over a month since launch, sadly no updates is forcing me give this a 2 star review. For 29 EUR you are paying somewhat of a premium in this MSFS economy for a plane. This includes fixing what should have glaring issues during QA. A laundry list of bugs and lacking features exist. From the map HUD not turning on properly from cold and dark to non-working interior buttons and switches. Initialization states are not setup properly either (such as spawning at altitude will put you in a plane with no running engine). As others have complained, you will occasionally get a beeping in the cockpit that seemly has a mind of it's own. While the interior looks decent, the exterior is way too shiny and not representative of even a brand new aircraft. As others have pointed out, one of the biggest negatives is the sound. Using A320 and CJ4 default sounds throughout takes you right out of the cockpit experience. The relatively quiet FJ44 engine sounds nothing like the roar of the afterburning J57 in the real plane. At the end of it all I think this plane has promise. Some of what I've mentioned (like initialization states) is something that could be fixed in less than an hour. This isn't Fall of 2020. The SDK is getting quite robust and producing planes like this isn't acceptable anymore.

Incredible airport, impressive quality, ground textures... I just miss a better surrounding modeling, but for 17$, it's enough !

LATINVFR - AIRPORT STATIC AIRCRAFT FOR ASOBO AIRPORTS MSFS
Brennan
It's a fantastic start. The aircraft models are gorgeous and vibrant in color. However, there needs to be more of them, and at gates instead of just filling up access remote parking spaces. I don't mind having half the gates blocked to spawn into if it means having an airport that looks alive and functional. I think if you kept the aircraft ration at between 50-60% of an airports gates it would really make the game feel much more lively. It is also worth looking into exactly where each airline parks at each of these airports as some of the aircraft placement is incorrect. For example, at KSEA, my home airport, they have southwest planes at the C and D gates. Whereas in real life only alaska uses C and D, with American and Spirit making use of of gates D8, D9, D10, and D11. B gates are a combo of Delta and Southwest, and A gates being split between Delta and United, with united typically occupying anywhere between A21 and A6. N gates are Alaska ONLY, and S gates are anything International and Frontier. I know this is nitpicky but other freeware traffic mods, even with much worse models got the placement correct, and i'd be more than willing to help the developers with putting in the research to ensure each airport has not only the proper AMOUNT of traffic but the proper placement.

Most of them are satisfactory. However, the height of the terminal building is too high. It's very different from the real thing. Hope this gets updated.

Definitely a disappointment! The models are pretty good however the aircraft are few and far between. Would of also liked to be able to have these at the Airports that LVFR created.

SIM SKUNK WORKS - FIAT-AERITALIA G-91 FOR MSFS
Arthur
I have been enthusiastic about this aircraft since childhood and was very happy that the G-91 is available for the MFSF. The design, the details and the presentation of the cockpit inspire me. Unfortunately, I am less enthusiastic about the flight characteristics of the Fiat. At the start I could not keep them on the runway and crashed constantly against airport buildings. SimSkunk advised me, very quickly, to switch to the aircraft model into "Modern". After the changeover I get the Gina at least in the air. There, however, it is extremely unstable, especially around the roll axis. I haven't been able to fly controlled curves so far. The elevator also hardly reacts to the instructions from the cockpit. I also fly the MB-339. It is stable in the air and reacts to rudder movements as I expect. At the moment it is not much fun to fly the G-91. Maybe there will soon be an update that stabilizes the flight behaviour.
PROJECT MAX - CYZF YELLOWKNIFE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT P3D4-5
Timothy
Ridiculously good scenery for the price--or more than the price. MAX keeps getting better. One of these days we'll be saying, "Ah, I knew them when..." And what better time to say thank you for supporting P3D. There is a lot of custom detail, including, of course, the iconic Buffalo hanger. All it needs is a Herman Nelson heater! Plenty of cars and equipment, too. The snow config is super: piles of the stuff, and not all in neat smooth mounds, either. Very realistic. Grey weeds sticking through where it's thinner are a great touch. The pavement is cracked and has puddles, and reflection is used to good effect. I was very impressed. I spent an hour just taxiing around in my Buffalo DC-3 taking in the sights, and it's not a very big airport. The AI traffic was appropriate, too. Lighting is good, and it looks great at night. Five stars doesn't mean it's FlyTampa quality, by the way, but if we have to compare apples and oranges, we should take into account a lot of things, including price and exceeding expectations by a wide margin. This is not some cheap, carelessly knocked out airport. This is really very nice by any standard, and I'm happy to give it five stars. I would have been glad to get any sort of Yellowknife (as an Ice Pilots NWT fan), but this is a very good little airport on its own if you fancy a NWT destination. -
Having said that, I should mention that installation is not exactly a one-click process. In fact, the only clicks are to extract folders and then one to add it from inside P3D. It isn't exactly manual installation (you don't have to look at the scenery.cfg) but it does require attention to detail getting various files (including more than one set of fixes) into the correct places. It probably won't be too hard if you know your way around the P3D folder, but if you've never done this sort of thing before, be aware. Especially since while the instructions do make sense if you already know what you're doing, if you don't and just follow them literally, it's not going to turn out well. If you get in a jam, though, I'm sure the devs would be happy to help, or you could check in with your favorite flight simulation forum, like AVSIM for peer support. Oh, there's also a click or two on the configurator to get those wonderful snow effects. The-
re are a couple of minor graphics issues I've written the developer about. Nothing to cause you to hesitate on a purchase though. I imagine they'll get back to me. They clearly put a lot of effort into this one. A must for Ice Pilots NWT fans, and I can't see anyone who enjoys flying in Canada passing it up. This isn't exactly bush flying. It's a nice flight north from Edmonton and has a First Air terminal. Plenty of appropriate Canadian AI (saw a Canadian North 737: bingo!) Honestly, you won't find better scenery at this price, and you could do worse at twice the price. Just be careful on those valley runs. Nothing good ever happens in Norman Wells on the show ;-)
