Moving alpilotx.net to a new provider! (DONE)

Just a short notice: as of January 25th I am starting to move the website to a new provider. This might result in a few outages over the coming 1-3 days … be patient and lets hope everything goes as planned. UPDATE: the move should now be finished. The site is fully up at the new hosting location and DSN propagation should be finished by now too 🙂 Should you find something “strange” on the page (which worked before), let me

Statement about the compatibility with X-Plane 11

All scenery on this website will remain compatible with X-plane 11 and can simply be moved from the old X-Plane 10 “Custom Scenery” environment to the new X-Plane 11 “Custom Scenery” environment. You only need to make sure, that in the new X-Plane 11 scnery_packs.ini the ordering remains correct (as recommended in the installation instructions). This includes: HD Mesh Scenery v3 UHD Mesh Scenery v1 Tree Lines and Farms v2 New Zealand Pro Updates to these products (especially the first

HD Mesh Scenery v3 – South / Central America released!

A new addition to the successful donationware HD Mesh Scenery v3 series has been release. This time, covering the rest of the American continent: Central America South America All usual “parameters” of the already existing HD Mesh Scenery v3 apply to this scenery too.

They are: Northern Washington state (west of the already existing Montana UHD region) Canadian Rockies (between 49N and 55N … from the Pacific to the plains around Calgary – quite a big area ) Scandinavia (Norway, Sweden) Pyrenees in Europe They are all using – just like before – 30m / 1sec resolution data (either

PREVIEW – X-Plane 10 Tree Lines and Farms V2

The latest little project I am working on is a “plain and simple” update of my X-Plane 10 Tree Lines and Farms scenery to V2. The main improvement will be, that you will see a vastly improved amount of tree lines: based on newer OSM data (the same I used for HD Mesh Scenery v2 … thus the two are “perfectly” matched), which alone brings – because of its growth – a lot of new vector data where I can

XP10 DSF-to-GML v2 script released

This little free(donationware) script (now in Version 2) helps to transform most parts of DSF files of X-Plane 10 Global Scenery to the GML format. The GML file then can be opened with most modern GIS tools, like the open source tool QGIS, to visualize the internal data structure of the DSF. More infos on the XP10 DSF-to-GML v2 script page !

Interview with me at Flightsim.com

Flightsim.com is working hard to increase their support for the X-Plane community. Not only did they introduced a new portal for the X-Plane world (x-plane.flightsim.com) but they als did lately an interview with me. So if you always asked, who this alpilotx guy is, here is your chance to learn (at least a tiny little bit more) about me, how I came to flight simulation and what I did and do for X-Plane. Read it all here: Interview With Andras

Video of New Zealand Pro for X-Plane 10

This video is showcasing the beautiful landscape of my X-Plane 10 scenery New Zealand Pro. Its my first experiment with a “larger” video, as I haven’t done much (well, nothing) in this area before (especially as I am on Linux … but I was surprised how polished video tools are nowadays). The scenery can be freely downloaded here on my website. Music is by Mike Andrews from  http://audiofarm.org/mikeandrews. Titles are: softness strings and guitar
