Description

Beginning in 1986, SubLOGIC, developers of the original Flight Simulator Series, released "Scenery Disks" which added airports, buildings, and landscape to regions outside the basic ones. In 1990, they re-released the disks in sets.

"Set B" includes: Scenery Disk #9 (expanded Chicago area, St. Louis, Cincinnati), Scenery Disk #12 (expanded New York area, Montreal, Halifax), and Hawaiian Odyssey (which included a treasure hunt across the islands, as well as "Experimental Scenery") (see Trivia for more).

This set works with all the original SubLOGIC-developed flight simulations, including Microsoft Flight Simulator versions 1-4, Sublogic Jet, and Flight Assignment: ATP.

The box cover was identical for all Scenery Collection sets, except for the gold sticker on the upper left.

Trivia

The "Experimental Scenery" included with the Hawaii scenery disk was a chance for the developers to have fun. It really departs from the typical aircraft scenery, and includes (but is not limited to):

  • A tunnel entrance with portals to the other areas, reached by flying into the Mauna Loa volcano.
  • Egyptian pyramids
  • A gargantuan piano. You can land on the keys.
  • A gargantuan kitchen. You can land on the counters, and there is even a giant fly on the table.
  • The regular Chicago scenery, with one small difference: the sky and ground are flipped 90 degrees _sideways_. There is a landing strip on the side of the Sears tower.
  • Runways in the sky.
  • Trees (which otherwise didn't show up in the early Flight Simulators, probably because of CPU/memory usage).

    Everything supposedly works back to the first version of Flight Simulator, except the trees. It was all developed on an 8MHz 286 with EGA - how's THAT for a 3D virtual reality studio?
