Best Scenery/Airport Add-on For FS9?

Fri Sep 21, 2007 9:14 pm

Unashamedy influenced by an earlier thread regarding best a/c. I thought I would seek opinion on the best airport or scenery add ons, freeware or payware. I personally find it a little disappointing on my travels around the FS world to arrive at some exotic location or major hub just to see the same dreary generic FS buildings.

My personal favourites....

Payware Major Hub...... Megascenery Frankfurt

Payware Small Airport...... ???

Payware general scenery.....FS Global

Freeware Major Hub.....???

Freeware Small Airport... Bacolod City, Negros, Philippines by Philippine Flight Sim Design Group

Freeware general scenery....???
A300/319/320/346 ATR72 B722/732/3/4/5/6/8/742/4/752/762/3/772/3 BAC111 BAe146 C172 DHC1/6/8 HS121 MD80 PA28

For me, anything from FlyTampa! I have also grown quite fond of Cloud9's LAX package.

For freeware, ifsd.ie has the best Irish scenery.

There are some problems though with the carnmore/galway (EICM) one as there are a load of hidden objects all over the airport.

Quoting Gerry (Reply 10):

I must agree about Australia and the VOZ scenery.
It must have taken 1000+ hours to make that and
it is freeware. Amazing down under!

I also want to promote another freeware:

Project Canarias 2006:

http://canarysim.com/pages/news.php?lang=EN

AND the last freeware on my list today:

HAWAII project 2007
A complete Hawaii scenery.
