Due to the fact, that my development of terrain meshes for X-Plane focuses remote areas, not covered or not realistically represented by X-Plane’s default landscape, the arctic polar and subpolar regions are of particular interest for me. I have many plans for the northern hemisphere, starting with the following sceneries:
Faroe Islands (Føroyar)
The archipelago of the Faroe Islands is my newest payware scenery for the flight simulator X-Plane 11 and it’s distributed under the brand Faroes4XPlane. The realization took place in cooperation with Albert Ràfols (you’ll probably know his award-winning SpainUHD scenery).
Faroes4XPlane features not only the Vágar Airport (realistically sloped, quite short runway) and the eight helipads which are spread over the islands, but also the stunning landscape (about 1.400 square kilometers of custom terrain mesh), seasonal representations as well as Faroese-themed autogen. To just name a few of the key features.
This is the full list of all included overlay sceneries followed by some snapshots: The Vágar Airport (EKVG), the Froðba Heliport (EKFA), the Kirkja Heliport (EKKU), the Klaksvík Heliport (EKKV), the Mykines Heliport (EKMS), the Skúvoy Heliport (EKSY), the Stóra Dímun Heliport (EKSR), the Svínoy Heliport (EKSO) and Tórshavn/Bodanes Heliport (EKTB).

The Norwegian archipelago Svalbard is my first payware terrain mesh for the flight simulator X-Plane 11 and it’s distributed under the brand Svalbard4XPlane. The scenery package not only contains the base mesh, but also overlay sceneries from my development partner Stairport Sceneries.
The key features of the Svalbard4XPlane mesh are: Coverage of the complete Svalbard archipelago with an area of about 61.000 square kilometers. High resolution terrain model and detailed outlines like coastlines, glaciers and waterbodies. Where required, manually modeled terrain details e.g. around airports. Generic, but photorealistic texturing for a summer and a winter-representation of the landscape.
The included overlay sceneries are: The Barentsburg Heliport (ENBA) and the Pyramiden Heliport (ENPY), the Ny-Ålesund Airport (ENAS) and the Svea Airport (ENSA), and of course the main airport Svalbard Airport, Longyear (ENSB) as well as the nearby main settlement of Svalbard, Longyearbyen.
