A complete rework and replacement freeware scenery mod for the city of Budapest in Hungary for the Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) 2020 release.  Replacing both photoreal ground textures and 3D buildings/objects and their textures also.  Completely free to download and use.

Budapest city showing bridges over the Danube in the city center after installing this freeware scenery mod in Microsoft Flight Simulator.The entire scenery area has been created using high-definition textures and satellite imagery and is of LOD20 (level of detail) specification.  The higher the LOD number, the higher the detail of the scenery mod, and essentially, the more pixels used to generate what you see within Microsoft Flight Simulator.

This mod, developed by steveli was created because the developer was not pleased with the default Microsoft scenery so aimed to create a pack (freeware) to replace this using a different source of data.

The developer has even post-produced each scenery file and texture and performed color fixing, sharpness correction, and blending effects so that the scenery looks super-realistic within MSFS.  They then tested the scenery on their machine to ensure it was smooth to run without any jitters or lagging.

This scenery pack is for mid-high end machines but with certain Sim Updates, it's likely to run just fine on a normal machine.  These Sim Updates released by Microsoft enabled photogrammetry replacements to run much faster with improved FPS and memory usage - both in the RAM and GPU memory.

This is the latest version released by the developer (v1.2) and they have stated in this update;

In Budapest v1.2, the color is corrected on blue tone, also layout.json file is updated to resoved the "flat" area problem.

Budapest is a wonderful city to start (and end) your virtual flights.  Perfect for European short-haul flights and even long-haul alike.  It has several airports (listed below) that are within the scenery area coverage suited for both heavies and light, general aviation aircraft.  The city itself sits on the side of the Danube (it's a riverside city) so you can get some wonderful and picturesque take-offs and landings when using the scenery mod within the simulator.

The scenery pack is exclusively for the latest Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) 2020 release and it is completely free of charge to download and use (freeware).  It's not a port-over, conversion, or fixup - it was created just for MSFS (2020).

All Packs, One File

The freeware release available from Fly Away Simulation includes all packs needed to experience the whole scenery area of Budapest, Hungary.  Some other sites that list this file release it in parts.  The one you download from here will include all parts (1-3) and is a complete, single download pack with no need to source or search for additional files or releases.  It's a complete package with a single download.  The developer originally released this scenery in 3 parts - they are all included.

This is a very large download and while it's easy to download (all in one pack), we recommend a download manager should your connection get interrupted.
