Simheaven latest release is truly outstanding. The result of more than 500 hours of work is already a must-have for european simmers! Introducing X-Europe.
Simheaven is always a certainty. Everything they release is always at the top of the users’ choice with any doubt! Today they released X-Europe, they’re latest marvel ehnancing the experience of flying the ‘Old Continent’.
The scenery package contains only X-Plane 11 original, and optimized, objects taken directly from Laminar Research that are placed following Open Street Map data. That means a more precise and realistic layout of landmarks and towns compared to the default autogen.
As you can see from this video the experience is excellent and yet similar to the one provided using the Ortho4XP tiles. In my opinion the photoreal scenery is still a step up, but it takes lot of space on our disks to build up the Europe land. X-Europe is heavy, 4GB compressed, but still lighter than the amount of tiles you’d need.
In less than a day this scenery package became a must-have for all the euro-simmers like me. I spent at least 500 hours flying in Europe since 2014 (only on IVAO) but I cannot understand how I did before this.
Also for the ones used to World2XP it’s hard to leave X-Europe as it’s more accurate and… beautiful! Still more enjoyable then the X-Plane 11 version of the worldwide famous W2XP.
Of course the scenery that you can download here is not made for everyday CPUs. You’d need at least a 3.00GHz CPU to run it smoothly, but with some compromises. For who is looking for a reason to update is processor, what else?
Do you enjoy X-Plane? Are you experienced enough to help members? Are you a newbie looking for help? As long as you breath and use X-Plane feel free to join XPD facebook group.
