Even basic add-ons such as the full keyboard control commands for ease-of-use around whichever virtual cockpit you find yourself in are available. As are the many different landscapes and outside terrains, which aside from the cockpit controls themselves, are largely the most important aspect of providing realism to the user, you.

Whether it is the particular aspects of individual cities, the coastline of a specific island or the rough terrain offered by some of the world’s most majestic mountain ranges from the United States to the Himalayas, all are waiting to expand your experience of virtual flying. And that is where we will start our look at ten of the best free add-ons for X-Plane 11.

HD Mesh Scenery V4
Recently released are HD and UHD options of X-Plane 11 Mesh scenery V4 – an add-on that is drastically improved over its predecessor, V3. And both options are completely free, both to download and to use. So, what will you be getting?

The HD version covers scenery in much of Europe, also including Iceland and the Canary Islands on the continent’s western side, and as far as Moscow, Russia, and even parts of Israel on its eastern front. It also covers the United States (including Alaska), Canada, as well as the entirety of Central and South America. If you are looking to venture out over the Pacific, you will find Hawaii and many more of the multiple islands that reside in the world’s largest ocean. And should you fly far enough you can explore Australia, Japan, and the Himalayas.

The HD option is also compatible with X-Plane 11 and is easy to install and use, even using the same files and specifications as the default scenery that comes with the X-Plane program. It really is a case of “drag-drop-use”.

You can enjoy the Pyrenees, the Alps, and the Scandinavian mountain ranges of Europe or head west to explore three different mountain ranges in both Canada or the United States.

The Alps Photoreal Scenery
New for 2019

Just released into our file library is an amazing photoreal scenery package for the Alps developed by the amazing team at A Sky Story.

Alps scenery for XP11/XP10.

The scenery covers the entire Western part of the Alps including many regions of the French Alps along with Switzerland and other regions. The size of the package is around 40 GB and includes everything you need to get started along with installation instructions.

This is a very large file and may take a while to download especially on a slow Internet connection. You may benefit from signing up to our PRO subscription in order to download faster.

All of the scenery has been created using real-world satellite images and then tweaked by the team at A Sky Story to make them accurate with less color and contrast issues (as satellite imagery is not perfect).

A lot of time and work has gone into creating this package. The whole package is compatible with X-Plane 11 and the older X-Plane 10.
