Just released from FranceVFR is a video of their latest package, FlightAlpes BasePack Nord providing scenery of the northern French Alpes.

France VFR has just released an FSX video of Flight Alpes Nord, that runs very well under FSX because of scenery optimization.

The scenery runs at 50/60 fps with full autogen on a high performance configuration, and the capture with Fraps occurs at more than 30 fps, so the video is very smooth...

As a major reworking of the brilliant BasePack Nord system, this does a great job of giving you all the information and detail that you could possibly need to enjoy this remake of such a popular destination. The quality of authenticity in not only the textures but the layout and the overall design is magnificent, doing a wonderful job of bringing together the whole airport and making it look truly spectacular.

One of the main improvements delivered with this modification, though, comes from the fact that it uses such high-end photographic scenery to improve and augment the entire airport. With 18,000 square km marked out with photorealistic scenery throughout, it’s arguably never been easier for an airport to make the most of its natural look and feel. This really does push the boundaries of quality and realism to the highest level, making sure that it all comes together and looks absolutely exemplary.

With this latest update and improvement, FlightAlpes never has to look mediocre or basic ever again. This package expertly covers the Southern section of the French Alps with awesome textures, also totally re-fitting the original airport itself. With new aligned taxiways and buildings that scale together and work in the same style and dynamism of the real thing, this does a wonderful job of capturing that detail and precision with marvelous accuracy.

Thanks to the additions brought to life in this, the Alps can feel far more alive than it once did. It's these major changes and improvements that bring the place together and make it look truly spectacular, creating an interesting and engaging range of improvements that really do everything they can to promote and propel the entire airport into authenticity.

With both VFR and IFR flights capable through this new range of chances, a massive layer of realism can be put into the region and enjoyed like never before.

It’s the hard work and commitment of the whole team behind the project that makes this work so well, with a whole new concept added to the region with authentic, easy to manage and understand designs.

If you have been looking for a way to thoroughly enjoy the detail and the style that comes with the Southern Alps, then this is the most detailed scenery package for doing so. With every update and change, this brings to life more than you would imagine with awesome, aerial photography.

Indeed, the whole package has been worked upon and optimized to make sure it carries the hallmarks and precision of the real thing making it look the  very best that it can at all times. Regardless of what you are looking for, you’ll find that this scenery package does everything it can to develop a fresh concept of scenery add-ons that really do augment the whole region.

For any fans of the Alps or for those who wish to visit them more often, this might just be the perfect addition to your simulation experience, augmenting it and improving it entirely.
