Scott...Im still confused.
I ordered Global Edition direct, but I have a feeling it Doesn't include all those
European airports like LFMN? Can I get them elsewhere?

Sorry...waiting for the DVD's to arrive!  :o

Nat

I think they come in from an update to 10.10 once you have it installed.  If not anymore then let me know and I will send the files.  They should be there though.

Nat,

Yes it will install all of these airports when you run the updater to get it all up to date. Also I know my copy of xplane10 actually came with a separate disc with the aerosoft airports on.

Just a few more European sceneries to add. It's looking good for France

Firstly the FranceVFR team who make awesome scenery for FSX have switched to xplane too! Their new site can be found here http://www.xpfrance.com/en/ terrain mesh is released but looks like all their FSX sceneries and photo VFR is to follow.

Secondly just downloaded and installed LFOB which is a Paris airport used by the low costs and its an awesome scenery! Up there with the best payware stuff

LFOB http://xpfr.org/?body=scene_accueil&sc=-1

Thanks

Hey Rhys

Whats the your last link to? I keep getting errors.
Thanks for the previous links also mate.

Heres a nice freeware, maybe too small for 737's but fun to try and get one in ;)

Nat,

The link has been taken down I think.

Those sceneries look awesome for freeware!!

I think I have found the mother of all freeware sites though!!!!

http://simheaven.de/ is a site that is all freeware! ZL 17 photo sceneries which are constantly updated and OSM data to go over it.

I have installed most of the alps and its awesome! I would pay £100's for this and it's all free!!!

Rhys,
Thanks for the link,i've been caughtup in this xplane thing as well. Had trouble accepting
it but persevered,d/l some of the free softaware and now starting to believe it going somewhere. I'm a bit confused, oSM sceneries and Photo Sceneries, whats the difference
and i gather you use both. Could you please explain.
Thanks
Les

The Photo sceneries are the VFR photoreal textures that drape over the mesh.

As far as the OSM sceneries its fairly easy to explain: Xplane uses open street map (OSM) to generate its buildings and roads. As OSM is a real time updated database that determines where and what type of roads and buildings are all over the world. This is updated constantly so every month there is more detail in this so to update this in xplane keeps more detail being added.

So you have the base layer which is the photo texture then the OSM layer is above this so where the photo scenery shows a road in the sim the OSM data will place that road on it with the traffic etc,

Hope that makes sense :)

Nat,

It is bud. OSM2xp is the conversion program. Australia is on open street map so it can be done, you just need the photo scenery.

I suggest trying simheaven.de in my above post that should give you everything
