Antarctica X : Hot test !

FSX. Largest addon scenery ever for FSX. Dozens of stations and ice runways. McMurdo impressive installations and runway...



The bad :

* FSX limitation : FSX did not design accurately the south Pole, so Antarctica X cannot, neither.

* The choosen solution Scenery + Aircraft = high price

* No animals (or very few).

The good :

* Three years of work, 7 highly detailed bases and dozens of ice runways.
  The opportunity to discover for the first time in virtual flight simulation, this seclusive "continent"

* A lot of aircrafts and chopers can be used here. Icebers, islands, montains, short runways, very large ice runways..

* Expecting an update to enhance more and more this huge scenery.

* Challenging flights due to lack of ATC, navaids, due to weather, runways conditions..etc.

In some areas, you can see a mix of
FSX classical synthesized textures and photoreal ones.

I did not realise that Antarctica was so big! Flights between bases using the Twin Otter or similar can take several hours! You'll need a big overcoat!
