DescriptionVFR Photographic Scenery: Northern England
is the fourth 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 that starts just north of Chester and extends north to the Scottish border. The Isle of Man is included in this volume.
The actual southern boundary is the line N53° 07.2' and the northern boundary is the border with Scotland.
The eastern boundary is the English coastline running from Berwick upon Tweed in the north to Sandsend, near Whitby, in the south where it follows the line W0° 40.2' down to Lincoln.
The western boundary is the west coast of England running down from the Scottish border to the River Dee.
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 four sections to this scenery add-on. The scenery is in three parts, northern, central and southern sections and there is an 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 3D objects supplied with Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002
are not correctly positioned and that for this reason they are disabled in the photographic scenery.
