Integrating advanced photogrammetry, this add-on enriches your flight experience with a faithful recreation of Bern's landscape and architecture. Photogrammetry, a process of using photographic images to measure and map environments, ensures that every building, street, and natural feature in Bern mirrors its real-world counterpart.

The scenery captures the essence of Bern's rich history and contemporary charm. From the UNESCO World Heritage-listed old town, Altstadt, to the panoramic river Aare that enfolds the city, this add-on paints a vivid and accurate representation of Bern's unique geography and urban layout.

Main Features

  • Realistic Depiction: Utilizes photogrammetry data from Google Maps for a true-to-life visual experience.
  • Preserved Handcrafted Buildings: Integration with MS/Asobo's handcrafted buildings enhances the overall fidelity and detail.
  • Accurate Terrain: Adjustments in elevation and terrain data, especially noticeable in areas like tennis courts.
  • Improved Vegetation: Enhanced blending and integration of vegetation for a more natural environment.
  • DEM (Digital Elevation Model) Corrections: Addressed issues with DEM to ensure a more consistent and realistic landscape.
  • Geographical Accuracy: Precise GPS coordinates (46° 56? 53? N, 7° 26? 51? E) situate the scenery accurately within the simulator.
