To encourage the growth of X-Plane, Stairport Sceneries are converting sceneries from Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Lockheed Martin Prepar3D as well as developing new sceneries for X-Plane.
Stairport Sceneries is a longtime development partner of mine. They benefit from my terrain mesh development and editing services. Together we developed and released e.g. the successful scenery package Svalbard4XPlane, and I contributed to various of Stairport’s products.
ShortFinal Design is the brand owned by well known MisterX6 and it stands for high quality freeware and payware sceneries as well as object libraries for the X-Plane flight simulator.
FlightSim Development Group have made a name for themselves for creating outstanding sceneries like Bremen, Cape Town or Mauritius, to name just a few. They started releasing X-Plane sceneries in 2019 and have already a nice list of destinations all around the world.
FSDG is my newest development partner and it was a real honor to contribute with my terrain mesh editing service to their outstanding Rhodes XP scenery, which don’t only cover the Rhodes International Airport “Diagoras” and the Maritsa Airport, but also the entire island in the South Aegean.
Área77 Simulations is a new design studio aiming to create sceneries for X-Plane. Their first scenery package features the Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport in Porto – the 2nd largest airport in the 2nd largest city in Portugal. Rui Silva, the founder of Área77 Simulations, has always been an aviation simulation enthusiast and now has the opportunity to also contribute to the community with his creations.
Although it was with “just” consulting and support a rather modest contribution to Área77 Simulations’ rendition of Porto Airport, it was a real pleasure for me to assist Rui with my extensive experiences in X-Plane scenery design, in particular the editing of existing terrain meshes.
Cami De Bellis, the designer behind CDB Scenery Design, has been developing X-Plane sceneries since 2008. Cami’s sceneries range from tropical islands to the Himalaya. Further, Cami offers with the CDB-Library one of the most extensive object libraries for X-Plane.
Contributing to Cami’s projects, whether it’s an edit of an existing terrain mesh or the development of a completely new landscape, is always a pleasure. See e.g. the Futuna and Alofi Scenery or the La Tontouta International Airport.
Aviotek Simulation Software was founded in 2015, with the goal of delivering high quality add-ons for the X-Plane flight simulator. Vittorio Greco, CEO and Founder of Aviotek Simulation Software, has always been passionated about aircrafts and flight simulators since he was a child.
Aviotek Simulation Software was one of my first development partners. They benefited from my terrain mesh editing service for their Dubai International Airport scenery.
Publishers and Hosting Partners
In conjunction with the numerous cooperations, Aerosoft, founded in 1991, can be counted as one of the world’s leading publishers in the simulation genre. Thanks to strong distribution partners in Europe, South America and the USA, Aerosoft today generates over 60% of their turnover abroad. The product portfolio of Aerosoft includes many add-ons for the Microsoft flight simulator as well as XPlane 10 & 11 and Aerofly FS 2, including add-ons.
X-Plane.org has been in operation since the year 2000, making them one of the oldest Flight sim websites in operation. X-Plane.org is an independent community forum focused on discussion for X-Plane and X-Plane add-ons.
