ANNOUNCEMENTS & NEWS
a small update for openLC EU is available. This fixes the reported issue of missing airport buildings.

Valley of the Rocks.
Monument Valley is located on the Arizona-Utah state line and is a large area that includes much of the area surrounding Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. Developer Frank Dainese has constructed 3D models of the mountains by using DEM data and then textured them with photographic images - creating a perfect replica of the real thing. This follows on from his very popular Yosemite freeware release where this method of creating life-like models of mountains was demonstrated.

Explore our most detailed region yet!
FTX Norway covers ~160,000 square miles (~420,000 sq km), all of Norway* plus narrow boundary regions of adjacent Sweden, Finland, and Russia. Enjoy a wide variety of landscapes -- scenic coastlines and offshore islands, deeply incised fjords, vast interior plateaus covered with close to one million lakes, lush agricultural areas along the corridors of large rivers, colorful villages, bustling urban centers, and industrial sites associated with oil & gas exploration -- and all have been recreated with great detail and accuracy.
Hand-placed custom landclass along with the road and railroad networks, powerlines, wind farms, and vertical obstructions are included for true-to-life VFR flying. Many key points of interests, urban as well as natural, are featured with seasonal photoreal coverage and are fully annotated with autogen buildings and vegetation. The city of Alesund has received special "Cityscape" treatment and we've also added important structures in Norway's capital, Oslo. Custom models of other landmark structures include two dozen major bridges, 28 of the iconic wooden stave churches, and almost 100 lighthouses.
Just like with our other region titles we've given each of the 117 listed airports and 18 unlisted airstrips a major upgrade, with more accurate placements of runways and taxiways as well as buildings, hangars, static aircraft, moving people (and creatures), and lots of "clutter". Last but not least all ground textures are hand-annotated with our custom autogen objects including the spectacular and frame-rate friendly FTX Global-style night lighting.
* Please note that the Arctic Ocean islands of Svalbard and Jan Mayen are not included with FTX Norway (no suitable data were available) though we've enhanced both ENSB (Svalbard Longyear) and EN67 (Broggerhalvoya) airports.
- Superb ground textures from local sources
- Hand-placed landclass covers every sq mile
- Custom autogen textures and objects
- FTX Global 3D night lighting effects
- Accurate roads, rivers, lakes, powerlines
- 135 airports have been added or upgraded
- Custom models of 25 significant bridges
- 28 stave churches and 97 lighthouses
- Highly detailed Alesund "Cityscape"
- Enhanced Oslo waterfront and downtown
- 12 photoreal natural and industrial areas
- Customized 10-m resolution terrain mesh
Important reminder for Global Vector users: Please run the Airport Elevation Corrections auto-configuration tool after installing FTX Norway.
