I had to start with those numbers because Aerosoft’s Offshore Landmarks: North Sea is just crazy.
But there’s a number that’s even crazier than that.
One billion polygons.
One. Billion. Polygons.
I don’t think there’s any other scenery package out there that is this big.
In the package you can find safety vessels, tankers, fishing boats, freighters, offshore industry (maintenance/building) vessels,
For finding out every location (a lot of them are equipped with an NDB), ICAO and other relevant information, the product manual has quite extensive lists with oil and gas platforms, substations and vessels with helidecks or winch pads.
But you will also find buoys, lightships, and windparks. It’s just incredible.
Offshore Landmarks: North Sea for MSFS was just released the scenery to the public and, despite the huge size, the price is impressive. 14.30 Euro / US$14.30 (plus VAT when applicable).
The full scenery will snatch about 9GB of your hard drive, but you will be getting an insane amount of objects in a very interesting – and often dangerous area to operate at.
Aerosoft is “working with Navigraph and Lufthansa Data Systems […] to have this data included in their datasets” and they are also “trying to reach out to Microsoft to see if they are willing to insert this in their system”. Oh and if that’s not enough, they are also contacting companies that make mission-based products such as OnAir and others.
