The default Flight Simulator 98 scenery covering Denmark is very sparse.
All that is covered in any detail is Kastrup airport. There are no details
for the rest of Denmark except for some major roads, lakes and rivers. Two
different sceneries exist for adding more airports and more scenery details
to the basic Danish scenery. The best known, and I think the most widely used,
is the one created by Jakob Laage. His files usually have the name 383jlxxx.zip
where xxx represents the version number of the scenery files. The latest
version is 3.16. In addition to the Danish scenery files, Morten Hansen has
recreated Kastrup airport.
I have created some additional scenery that add additional objects to selected
parts of Denmark. My scenery files don't require 383jlxxx as such. It has
however been tested with it. Some of the objects may be in the wrong place
if you do not use it. At the moment, my scenery "package" consists of the
following scenery files that add the following objects:
- Windmills on Amager just south of the end of one of the runways at
- Windmills at Lynetten at the entry to Copenhagen harbour.
- Windmills facing Kalveboderne (north of Avedøre Holme).
- Windmills at Avedøre Holme.
- Storage tanks at the electricity power plant at Avedøre Holme.
- Some electricity pylons northwest of Avedøre Holme.
And a few other bits and pieces have also crept in here and there (like
my own house for example, and no, there's no price for finding it).
- Oil storage tanks at Stigsnæs oil harbour.
- Freighter at Stigsnæs.
- Telecoms tower at Slots Bjergby (south of Slagelse).
- St. Mikaels church in Slagelse.
- More than 30 windmills (I've lost exact count) spread out over south
Sjælland. Almost all of them can be found in the area west of E 11*
30 and south of the motorway leading to the Great Belt bridge.
Why so many windmills you may ask. Well, the scenery designer I use makes
it easy to create, its a bit more interesting than for example an ordinary
house and it has become a major feature of the Danish landscape where I
I'm afraid there is no future for this project. If you still use Flight Simulator 95 or 98, this scenery will work for you.
If you are using the latest (as I'm writing this it means Flight Simulator 2004) I can recommend:
ot quite sure what else to add to increase detail in the Copenhagen
area. If you have any ideas, E-mail me.
I live in south-west Sjælland, and I'm mostly adding objects for
that area. I do have newer scenery files with more objects and another .BGL
file with some windmills as they can be seen around Roskilde airport. They
should be posted in the not too distant future.
To create the scenery files I have used:
"Scenery Designer for Windows" (SDW) v1.0.11 by
"Danmarks Topografiske Kortværk", a CD-ROM from "Kort & Matrikelstyrelsen"
containing scanned maps of Denmark in detail down to 1:25000.
dkxtra.zip (99.4 KB)
Lots of documents cover how to install scenery files into Flight Simulator,
so I won't do it in any great detail:
In DKXTRA.ZIP, I have added an installation batch file which will create
necessary directories and copy the files to their correct locations. After
you have run this batch file, you need to add the scenery to the Flight Simulator
Spot plane view towards Kastrup airport
with windmills visible.
