Svalbard4XPlane is a quite realistic representation of Svalbard for the flight simulator X-Plane 11. The Norwegian archipelago is located in the Arctic Ocean north of the Polar circle between 74. and 81. latitude and is not covered by the X-Plane default installation. So the scenery package Svalbard4XPlane does not only fill a gap in the […]Read More Features of Svalbard4XPlane

But why not use the opportunities of […]Read More News about Antarctica4XPlane
Besides the development of new X-Plane Meshes, especially for remote areas like the Antarctic continent, I begun to develop a new tool to edit existing X-Plane Meshes. Some background information: Developers of X-Plane Scenery Add-ons often encounter the problem, that their overlay scenery doesn’t fit well into the underlying X-Plane Base Mesh. My new tool […]Read More A tool to edit X-Plane Meshes: The idea and goals
