A complete overhaul of the default Matterhorn Mountain scenery by developer NikPrist for the Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) 2020 release.

Summit of Matterhorn in MSFS.This add-on is now v2.0.

The Matterhorn - an iconic and world-famous Swiss mountain and easily recognizable by its distinct outline. The developer created this package as they were not impressed with the MSFS default version and claimed it looked, "lacking".

This version brings the mesh for the mountain up to a much higher spec and resolution along with photorealistic textures that really bring the faces of the mountain to life.

New features of v2.0

  • Added 4 LOD levels and improved performance when flying far from the mountain or when viewing it from certain angles.
  • Color corrected the textures as much as possible and totally removed the default bluish shadows to make it look natural and beautiful.
  • Added cable car pylons for the whole area. Now it's more interesting to explore around the mountain following their path.
  • Added polygons for the missing forests south of Zermatt near the foothills of the mountain. Now they are properly populated with trees.

In version 2.0, the mountain scenery was divided into 4 different modal areas. This improves performance on higher resolution displays.

Developer: NikPrist.

Currently, the developer does not publish a public donation page. If this changes we will add it here.

This isn't working for me, The mountain is rendered and looks great, but with a huge gap beneath it and the rest of the scenery. Applied to my community folder in the Steam version running the latest update. I have a screenshot if needed.

Approach from the south. Increase in height. The scenery is too high.

I JUST was flying around the Matterhorn five minutes before coming to this site lol. I have been obsessed since seeing a VR movie about it on my Oculus Quest 2. I can't wait to try it.
