  1. Antarctica4XPlane - updates and new content out now!

  2. Die antarktischen Abenteuer in X-Plane gehen weiter! Zunächst möchte ich mich bei Aerosoft für das Angebot bedanken, meine Antarctica4XPlane Terrain-Mesh-Szenerien für X-Plane, sowie das offizielle "Info, Diskussion und Support"-Forum zu hosten. Was ist Antarctica4XPlane? Eine 3D-Visualisierung des antarktischen Kontinents für den Flugsimulator X-Plane. Sie verfügt über ein realistisches Geländemodell, das mit passenden Texturen bedeckt ist. Die Landschaft wird durch Dutzende virtuelle Forschungsstationen, Basislager und Flugplätze, als Abbild der realen Gegenstücke ergänzt. Historie des Projekts! Am 17. April 2015 veröffentlichte Nino die Idee einer virtuellen Antarktis und suchte Hilfe für die technische Umsetzung. Inspiriert von Nino's Idee entwickelte ich erste Geländemodelle. Parallel dazu begannen Dritte, virtuelle Forschungsstationen, Basislager und Flugplätze zu entwickeln. Im Dezember 2015 konnte ich Teil 1 von Antarctica4XPlane veröffentlichen, der die Südlichen Orkneyinseln und die Antarktische Halbinsel abdeckt. Im Juni 2016 folgte die Veröffentlichung von Teil 2 von Antarctica4XPlane, der das Viktorialand und die nördlichen Teile des Transantarktischen Gebirges abdeckt. Seitdem wurden die Terrain-Mesh-Szenerien jährlich aktualisiert und mit neuen Inhalten ergänzt. Im Januar 2019 wurde schließlich Teil 3 von Antarctica4XPlane veröffentlicht: Dieser neueste Teil deckt Coatsland und den westlichen Teil von Königin-Maud-Land ab. Obige Links führen Sie zu den Downloads der Antarctica4XPlane-Terrain-Meshes. Geeignete Erweiterungen (Forschungsstationen, Basislager und Flugplätze) von Drittanbietern sind auf meiner Website aufgelistet. Ich freue mich auf euere Beiträge und Kommentare: Dieser Forum-Thread soll uns zum Informationsaustausch, für Diskussionen und den Support rund um Antarctica4XPlane dienen.
  3. The antarctic adventures for X-Plane continue! First of all, I'd like to thank Aerosoft for the offer to host my Antarctica4XPlane terrain mesh sceneries for X-Plane as well as the official "info, discussion and support"-forum. What is Antarctica4XPlane? A 3D visualization of the Antarctic continent, for use within the flight simulator X-Plane. It features a realistically shaped terrain model covered with a plausible texture set. The landscape is complemented with dozens of virtual research stations, base camps and airfields as an image of the real counterparts. A brief history! On 17th April 2015 Nino published the idea of a virtual Antarctica, searching for technical assistance. Inspired by Nino’s idea, I begun to develop first terrain models. In parallel, third-parties begun to develop virtual research stations, base camps and airfields. In December 2015 I was able to release part 1 of Antarctica4XPlane, covering the South Orkney Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula. Followed in June 2016 by the release of part 2 of Antarctica4XPlane, covering Victoria Land and the northern parts of the Transantarctic Mountains. Since then, the terrain mesh scenery packages received annual updates and were complemented with new content. In January 2019, part 3 of Antarctica4XPlane was released: This latest part covers Coats Land and the western parts of Queen Maud Land. Above links lead you to the download-options of the Antarctica4XPlane terrain meshes. Suitable add-ons (research stations, base camps and airfields) from third-parties, are listed on my website. I'm looking forward to your reviews and comments: Let's use this forum-thread for information, discussions and support around Antarctica4XPlane.

    Coats Land and Queen Maud Land, Antarctica. Antarctica4XPlane - Part III The Antarctic Adventure continous! I am proud to present Part III of my Antarctica Mesh Scenery Antarctica4XPlane. It covers Coats Land and the western parts of Queen Maud Land, down to -81 degrees. Suitable add-ons as well as more regions will follow in the future: I recommend you to follow the development blog to stay up to date. Creating a Antarctica Mesh Scenery is a quite difficult and time-consuming task. That's due to missing or not accurate data in the public domain. Many parts of this mesh scenery were modeled by hand, and a lot of passion went into this project. However, this ambitious freeware project cannot keep alive without support. Thus, if you like the Antarctica4XPlane project and want to support the further development, then please visit the project's support-site and support the further development. Installation is simple: Unarchive the downloaded file and place the folder Antarctica4XPlane_3v1 into your Custom Scenery directory and add the following line near the bottom (below the research base sceneries) of your scenery_packs.ini: SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/Antarctica4XPlane_3v1/ I strongly recommend to switch on "runways follow terrain contours" and if you're already using X-Plane 11 then I recommend you my Antarctic Maps because X-Plane's default map doesn't cover the Antarctic Continent. To start your Antarctica Adventure with Antarctica4XPlane I suggest the Research Base Station Sceneries available on the project's website. First Sceneries are already available and hopefully many more will follow. Please note: Especially for this Part 3 doesn't exist so far any custom sceneries. Because of that, I attach an apt.dat (unzip the archive apt.dat.zip and move the apt.dat into Custom Scenery/Antarctica4XPlane_3v1/Earth nav data/) with some skiways and helipads: EGAH (Halley Research Station), SAYB (Belgrano II Base), AT16 (Neumayer-Station III), DRE1 (Drescher Ice Camp), ABA1 (Aboa Research Station), WSA1 (Wasa Research Station), SVE1 (Svea Research Station), AT12 (Kohnen Station), AT22 (SANAE IV Research Base), AT27 (Troll Research Station) and TOR1 (Tor Research Station). Antarctica4XPlane comes exclusively for X-Plane, for free and personal use only, but without guarantee and warranty. Antarctica4XPlane is intended for flight simulation only and shall not be used for real life navigation or any other real life purposes. You are not allowed to modify, reverse-engineer or redistribute this scenery or to use any part of it in your own sceneries. Please contact me, if you have questions regarding the license or if you are interested in a cooperation or commercial applications. HAVE FUN.

    Victoria Land and Transantarctic Mountains, Antarctica. Antarctica4XPlane - Part II I am proud to present Part II of my Antarctica Mesh Scenery Antarctica4XPlane. This second part covers the Victoria Land and the northern parts of the Transantarctic Mountains down to -81 degrees. More regions will follow in the future: I recommend you to follow the development blog to stay up to date. Antarctica4XPlane is close to its 4th anniversary. Years of joy, but also hard work on this challenging Antarctica Mesh Scenery. I'd like to continue the Antarctica4XPlane project to present further parts of the coldest and driest continent on our earth. However, that isn't possible without support. Thus, if you like the Antarctica4XPlane project and want to support the further development, then please visit the project's support-site and support the further development. Installation is simple: Unarchive the downloaded file and place the folder Antarctica4XPlane_2v4 into your Custom Scenery directory and add the following line near the bottom (below the research base sceneries) of your scenery_packs.ini: SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/Antarctica4XPlane_2v4/ Caution: If you are upgrading from an earlier version of Part II, then delete the directory of the old version before you start your simulator. I strongly recommend to switch on "runways follow terrain contours" and if you're already using X-Plane 11 then I recommend you my Antarctic Maps because X-Plane's default map doesn't cover the Antarctic Continent.

    Faroes4XPlane - Färöer Szenerie für X-Plane

    Das Warten hat ein Ende, es ist endlich soweit: Faroe Islands XP wurde gestern von unserem Partner Aerosoft veröffentlicht. Seht hier die offizielle Ankündigung von Aerosoft oder direkt die Produktseite im Aerosoft Shop. Macht euch bereit auf eine anspruchsvolle Landung am Flughafen Vágar: Verliert nicht den Fokus durch die atemberaubende, sich saisonal verändernde Landschaft, denn ihr müsst mit einer stark geneigten und recht kurzen Landebahn rechnen - nur 1799 Meter. Nach der erfolgreichen Landung habt ihr die Möglichkeit, mit einem Helikopter die acht landschaftlich reizvoll gelegenen Hubschrauberlandeplätze und Siedlungen in typischem Färöer-Stil zu erkunden. Und das sind nur die Key Features von Faroes4XPlane 🙂 Weitere Informationen auf meiner Webseite.

    Faroe Islands XP (released)

    Thank you 🙂 And please note: Our scenery package has nothing to do with any existing P3D version. It is not a conversion of an existing product. Almost every piece of the scenery is modeled from scratch. Not only the airport and the helipads, but also the autogen and the terrain mesh.
