In conjunction with my Antarctica4XPlane scenery, I worked on the realization of a few Subantarctic Islands, which are missing in the X-Plane default world – or are at least not realistically shaped. Please note: These scenery packages as well as the add-ons mentioned in the last paragraph were developed for X-Plane 10/11, but work for X-Plane 11+ as well.
Prince Edward Islands
The Prince Edward Islands consists of two small South African Subantarctic Islands in the Indian Ocean, named Marion Island and Prince Edward Island. A great place for a stop-over when you’re on your way to the Antarctic Continent.
This Terrain Mesh Scenery for X-Plane was inspired by Ralph, who developed a Prince Edward Island Adventures scenery package, which I can recommend as an add-on. Besides some fictive content, this scenery package includes the meteorological and biological research station operated by the South African National Antarctic Programme on Marion Island.
Heard Island and McDonald Islands
Heard Island and McDonald Islands are Australian territory and are among the most remote places on Earth. Did you know: The summit of Heard Island, Mawson Peak, is higher than any mountain on the Australian mainland!
Another great place for a stop-over when you’re on your way to the Antarctic Continent. This Terrain Mesh Scenery was inspired by Pedro, who offers a choice of fictional airfields as an add-on to the Heard Island Mesh.
[X-Plane 11+] In addition to my Subantarctic Terrain Mesh Sceneries, I recommend to use my Antarctic and Subantarctic Maps for X-Plane (because X-Plane’s default map doesn’t show any or only worse shaped outlines of the Subantarctic Islands).
[X-Plane 10+] In addition to my Terrain Mesh Sceneries, I recommend to use my Planet Map Replacement (because X-Plane’s default planet map doesn’t show some of the Subantarctic Islands).
