Take a trip to the small nation of Malta in any simulation package, and you will often be left disappointed. One of the big problems with smaller nations in the simulation is the lack of detail they receive. This add-on, though, looks to cover this important Southern European island nation in the necessary detail required.

Flying over the coastline of Malta using the scenery in P3Dv4.Despite being just 333km2 in size, Malta is a very important place for a good many people. The location is richly enjoyable to visit, with a huge amount of awesome sights. It’s based within the Mediterranean Sea and is often blessed with outstanding weather across the whole year. A population of around 450,000 live here, making it one of the smallest yet most densely populated locations on the planet.

Users of FSX, FSX: Steam Edition and Prepar3D (including version 4) can now fly and see it for all of its rich beauty. The island capital, Valletta, is very much worth your time coming to visit. It’s the smallest national capital in the European Union by area used, but it’s also one of the most enjoyable places to visit for historians and pilot alike.

With the whole of the island and area expertly covered here, you can enjoy flying to Malta and seeing it with more detail than this island has been covered with beforehand.

What’s new?

  • 1.5 GB in size, ensuring the whole island nation is covered with around 0.5m/pixel of scenery.
  • Tested using FSX, FSX: Steam Edition and Prepar3D (including version 4) to help ensure that this add-on delivers smooth performance.
  • Fully compatible with major scenery add-on tools such as FTX Global Vector & FreeMesh X Global for coastline improvement.
  • Key landmarks across the island captured in rich detail, ensuring the whole of the area can look and feel as realistic as is possible.
  • Detailed scenery looks to capture the landscape of the island in closer detail, re-arranging the terrain to fit with its realistic norms.
  • Attention to detail paid on the layout of the island of Malta to help ensure the island looks as close to the real island as is possible.
  • Great for completing European scenery, and combines well with other popular FTXDes add-ons across Southern Europe.

Tested with FSX, FSX: Steam Editon and Prepar3D v4. This is a very large file download.

Note: This scenery would work best with a high-quality mesh texture package. We recommend FreeMeshX Global (FreeMeshX-Global-2.0.zip) which you can download here.

Developer: FTXDes (Project Open Scenery)

I have just returned to Reno having spent a week in Malta where I served in the RAF in the 1950s. The fighter control ops room is situated in caves under the capital city of Valletta and is now a museum and is exactly as it was in the 40s and 50s. I sat in the chair where I worked as a fighter Marshall. Great memories.

Are you planning to have LMML (Malta) for FS2020?


Bob NichollsFri, 21 Aug 2020 03:05:34 GMT

Same as the above. There is no subfolder "project open scenery _ Malta in the download files. Any help would be greatly appreciated as it took me 10 hours to download.
