Description

VFR Photographic Scenery: East & South-East England is the first volume in the VFR Photographic Scenery add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002. This product provides the player with new scenery for the area of England east of W0° 48.34' running from the south near Chichester in Essex northwards to near Whitby in North Yorkshire.

This photographic scenery was developed by Getmapping PLC and Visual Flight and is based the 'Millenium Map', the first ever complete record seamless aerial photographic record of the United Kingdom.

There are five sections to this scenery add-on. The scenery is in three parts, northern, central and southern sections and there are replacement water textures and enhanced mesh terrain. This has been done so that players with low disc space can install just the sections they require.

The scenery includes additional landing strips of the small airports, farm landing strips and disused airstrips that are not included in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002. The player can land on these strips but, because they are not known to Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002 the player must disable crash detection prior to landing.

Night time scenery was not featured in the VFR Photographic Scenery series. Also, the makers claim that many default 3D objects supplied with Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002 are not correctly positioned and that for this reason they are disabled in the photographic scenery.
