Staff comments: We had Corsica with FranceVFR spectacular scenery within FS2004, it have been patched for FSX. There is also a full photoscenery wich is free available from certains forums (the link may be found on OZ web pages at the right). France touristique splitted Corsica in two volumes wich make the whole thing expensive. It may be interesting but the screenshots they made are horrible. I recommend FranceVFR or at least the free one. Here some screens from both the free Photoscenery and FranceVFR

  • Be Aware of FlightGear copies
    Unfortunately being ridiculous is not lethal. If you have heard or read a little about some Flight Pro Sim, you wouldn’t think it is just the exact copy of FlightGear, the famous freeware and open-source flight simulator developed since 1996. But that’s the case here. If their homepage was not horrible enough to refrain you [...]

Nice place even in FS9. It’s said to be the “James Bond” field because of some shots of “Tomorrow never dies”

The runway is sloped as in some Alps airfields.

    Redaction comments: France VFR is one of those High quality photsceneries. The sceneries are also autogen annotated and since FS2004 have covered big areas of France, mountains (Alps and Pyrenees) and some territorials islands (Martinique, Guadeloupe, Reunion and Mayotte). The olders one, beeing designed for Fs2004 are working under FSX via a  patch, but do not looks so good as one may expect. The newest ones (bretagne, and the one upper here) beeing designed for FSX makes a good use of FSX possibilities.

You will also find major attractions like Marine [...]
    Redaction comments: The third one Niagara Falls last months. Aerosoft’s Us cities series has been a good example of autogen annotated sceneries and nicely done. Especially when compared to the older Manhattan one…
    Photosceneries really needs editing and autogen because otherwise they only looks good from a certain altitude, zoom level and point of view. Also if not specifically edited they are only summer season.
    Niagara Falls photosceneries are alos available from:
    Newport:

    A mention to Newport sceneries is that the Photoscenery boundaries are blended smartly with the default terrain area. So it’s not the straight line from a world to another like many other photosceneries.
