It’s been awhile, since my last news about Antarctica4XPlane, my Antarctica Base Mesh for the X-Plane Flight Simulator. It’s winter on the southernmost continent and due to the darkness and rough weather conditions at this time of the year, almost all antarctic researchers went home for a break. But why not use the opportunities of […]Read More News about Antarctica4XPlane
You love to fly the DHC-6 from Aero Pedro? Then I suggest to you the Kenn Borek Air Livery by Walter. Even when the original aircraft with the identification C-GKBH is a shortnose version of the DHC-6, Walter’s livery works also very well with all other versions of Pedro’s DHC-6. Kenn Borek Air is an airline based […]Read More Kenn Borek Air Livery
Related to the Antarctica4XPlane project, Nino finished an incredible work, to gather and systemize information about the antarctic continent. The result is an Antarctic Catalog containing especially information about Airfields, Research Base Stations and Airplanes. Read more about his project and the result of his work here…Read More A Catalog of Antarctic Research Bases, Airfields and Airplanes
The current season in Antarctica is approaching its peak and it is thus an appropriate time for the release of further research stations: I’m proud to announce that Paolo released two brand-new Research Station Scenery Packages in addition to my Antarctica Mesh Scenery. The packages contain amongst others: Comandante Ferraz Station and Machu Picchu Base, McMurdo Station (on the image […]Read More New Antarctica Sceneries
As of today, a new version of Antarctica4XPlane Part 2 is online. This update covers now a much larger area of Victoria Land and the northern parts of the Transantarctic Mountains. Also, this update improves the resolution of the Mesh dramatically. The download-links to this update and all other sceneries can be found in the Sceneries-Section of […]Read More Update of Antarctica4XPlane!
I’m working on a mesh update of Antarctica4XPlane Part 2. For this I begun to merge some high resolution elevation models into the current low resolution model. With success as you can see below: Shown is a digital elevation model of Ross Island [the current DEM on the left and the upcoming on the right], […]Read More Working on Elevation Models
Paolo released a new Antarctica Scenery package! It contains the Mario Zucchelli Station, a permanent Italian Research Base, located at the Terra Nova Bay. Nearby you will find the Jang Bogo Station and Enigma Lake, with a challenging Skiway. Have fun and don’t forget to support the further development of our project.Read More Mario Zucchelli Station
Besides the development of the Antarctica Mesh for X-Plane, I begun to create 3D-models and released my first Research Base Scenery: The Signy Research Station, located on Signy Island, a small subantarctic island in the South Orkney Islands, and operated by the British Antarctic Survey.Read More Signy Research Station
Since today, an updated version of Part 1 of my Antarctica Mesh Scenery for X-Plane is available for download. Besides some minor fixes and improvements, the Base Mesh contains now Bathymetry Data, which gives the Antarctic Ocean a more realistic look. Because with the X-Plane default settings, the included bathymetry data isn’t recognizable, I developed […]Read More Antarctica Mesh Update!
The call to create sceneries for the Antarctica4XPlane project shows first successes: It’s a pleasure for me to announce that Mark released the Trough Lake Camp and the Lower Wright Glacier Hut. I thank Mark and I’m looking forward to further realizations by him and other developers who like to support.Read More Research Camps Sceneries
