    Hi!

    I lived for over 10 years in Iceland and fell in love with that island so much that I have done some sceneries on that region. Now here is the newest which I still call beta, but it is pretty much what the final version will be.
    This scenery is based on data provided by National land survey of Iceland

    You can download the scenery, test it and report problems to me.

    I think I still have to create some waterfall-effects and Geysir, but here is a list what is included.

    Freeware scenery for whole Iceland.
    • Accurate coastlines
    • Mosaic land class and water class
    • Vector land class
    • Roads and utility lines
    • Mesh scenery
    • Corrected airfields. FSX default data is quite old. (The biggest airports included. I need some more time to add all those landing strips for Bush pilots)
    • Aeronautical ground lights (Lighthouses that AIP lists, but only the light, no 3D buildings at least yet)
    • An early version of Vestmannaeyjar (BIVM) photo scenery.

    Hi,

    I just made a futurist hotel slowly flying around Iceland (4 days journey). In my ReadMe I add and recommand your scenery. Do you have a final project?

    P.S. Are you accordionist?

    Nice work! I'd like to add this to my sceneries when the bush strips are finished. I hope it is still being worked on.

    Since ORBX Iceland, I haven't been working on this at all. I think I made quite a many bush strips already, but not all of them. Do you really think it would make sense to continue with this scenery?

    Yes it would! And then rework all the airports ofcourse. The Aerosoft ones are bit simple and outdated. :rolleyes:

    I downloaded it yesterday and it looks very fine. Some things are to do with ADE but it looks much better as default!!
