X-Plane Scenery

This category covers expansions, mods, and add-ons that improve, replace or add extra scenery areas to your copy of X-Plane 12 or X-Plane 11 (or XP12/XP11 as it's known in the community).

Covered here are small airfields that the developers may have missed out on the default release because of development resource limits all the way up to large international airports that are already included but provide a better, more accurate, and detailed representation of them.

Also included are highly detailed photoreal packages that replace the stock ground terrain with real photographic images from satellite data.  These files are usually very large and may take a long time to download on a standard Internet connection.  Having said that, the wait is worth it because the level of detail is stunning and once you've used photoreal you won't go back to the default.

Adding these files is a great way to expand upon the default installation.  All of the files are compatible with any platform that runs X-Plane.  If you are already running X-Plane 12 or 11 on your platform then these files will work without issue - they are universal.

Some of the scenery add-ons included in this category:

  • New/updated airports
  • Better mesh scenery
  • New ground terrain including photoreal (or Orthophoto as it's known) covering areas such as the USA, Europe, Australia, and more.
  • Towns and cities that may not be as detailed in the default install
  • Environment upgrades

Worth noting is that all of the mesh add-ons released by the well-known AlpilotX can be found here.  You can also find the UHD versions here.  They are not included in this category.

Installation is easy and can usually be achieved with an unzip and simple drag-drop into your X-Plane folders.  Most (if not all) of the files come with detailed installation instructions.

Browsing the category is also simple - you can sort the files using the handy "sort by" feature below.  Enjoy the scenery!

X-Plane 12 Coverage

Most of the scenery packs (especially orthophoto/photoreal) covered here work out of the box with the latest X-Plane 12 release of September 2022.  While we are still updating the individual file listing descriptions, be sure to know they will work with X-Plane 12.
