the growing number of freeware sceneries available, mostly at https://flight-sim.org/, but also in other places, makes it more and more difficult to keep trace of them. After all, there are real gems which are in danger of being overlooked. As a result, I decided to make a list of Freeware Sceneries for AeroflyFS2. This was inspired by the famous FSX/P3D freeeware list by Robert-Jan Oosterloo. I tried to keep it as simple as possible, no fancy applets or flash, just information.
Ideas for improvement are certainly welcome. Here are a few initial Q/As.
Q: Will there be a parallel list of payware sceneries (like Robert-Jan Oosterloo maintains)?
A: I thought about that, and if the freeware list finds positive resonance, I might add one.
Q: Will this list be regularly updated?
A: I usually update my sites on Sunday evenings and will include the list.
Q: Will a later version include preview pictures, like the FSX/P3D list does?
A: Probably not. Contrary to FSX/P3D freeware packages which usually include a few preview pictures, most of the AeroflyFS2 packages don't and I lack time to make and process a multitude of screenshots myself.
Q: Will there be lists for planes/repaints and/or tools?
A: Unlikely. I am much more experienced in the field of scenery than planes and prefer to keep the update workload manageable instead of providing a host of lists which I don't find the resources to maintain later.
Finally, I would like thank the makers of the sceneries included. It's amazing how much is already available - and some more fascinating projects are on the way. Another thanks goes to Higgy for providing and maintaining that huge archive unter https://flight-sim.org/.
Kind regards, Michael
