These regions are really becoming more and more detailed.  Incredible work, and great pics as always Iain.

Exciting news and great shots of the mountains. I'm looking forward to this one that brings us hopefully close to the existing FTX Innsbruck too.

Pic's look great!

Currently in P3dv4 my German town doesn't exist when you fly over it.Vector has placed the roads but there aren't any buildings visable.Currently in the sim with Orbx global/Europe it's just forest.

I'm really hoping Germany South will fix that and have my town of Wildpark near Taunusstein visable.

Any chance Ian you could fly over it? It's in between Wiesbaden and Frankfurt and break the news to me.

Oh well then I'll have to wait a bit more :) 

 

Hopefully you have included my home city Dormagen as we have a Store (LIDL) here around with a bright red roof and a big Chempark - both very nice to spot wenn takeing ouf in Düsseldorf to the south (can confirm by myself ;)) - because my town is just perfectly between between Düsseldorf ( Germany North) and Cologne (Germany south)

 

These are the Coodinates:

Oh and by the way the Schattseite is officially austrian ;)

Hi, while areas of your town are designated as residential, it was done in too much detail on openstreetmap, so that it properly was rejected as too small by the algorithm that orbx are using to create the towns. If the whole area of your town would be assigned 'residential' like its been done on google maps with the GeoBasis data it would likely pick it up.

Sweet. Graf brings back memories. Hopefully Coleman Army Airfield (I was stationed there) will be improved as well!

Hello, 

 

great previews =)

 

Maybe you have already created it but if not you might take it into consideration:

 

the Stuttgarter Fernsehturm, opened in 1956, has been the world's first TV tower and is one of the most recognizable sights in the Southwest of Germany. It stands just a few miles north of Stuttgart Airport EDDS and as there is a new version of the Airport available from another developer it would be great to see it on approach.

 

Also at the northern coast of Lake Constance, the Pfahlbauten Unteruhldingen (I would translate it with pile dwellings or stilt houses) are an outdoor museum built into the lake just were archaeologists have found several remains of a village of the stone and early bronze age. The houses have been rebuilt and are a great sight as well =)

 

Cheers,

Marc

Looking rather sweet!

Is there a coverage map available? Would love to see to what extend the Northern Alps are included.

Dev's sent me a message that my town is indeed in the Germany South Scenery.Pheww Relief.Can't wait to fly over it .

Just need Orbx to make Mainz-Finthen Airport so I can use it as a base for AirHauler 2.Can move to Frankfurt Main once I get some Heavies.

Thanks again Dev's for including my little hidden town.

Where about is this Schattseite? I did a Google-search and there are some small local areas as mountainsides, hillsides or even only street addresses called "Schattseite" in Austria, but non of them is really close to the German Border. Haven't found any geographical area or POI in Germany called Schattseite.

Oh wow, what a nice surprise. Looks terrific.

During my military service I have been to Grafenwöhr twice, but I only know it from crawling altitude (0 ft AGL). :D

Use Google Earth search and you'll find it. It's south of Bad Reichenhall and east of Kufstein, just inside the GES coverage area (added below).
