Sceneries for X-Plane 11. X-EUROPE this is the newest project for X-Plane11, having all of the stuff below inside for Europe, OpenSceneryX library needed. It brings fantastic and stunning look to XP11; VFR-Landmarks. The computer requirements for Mega Airport Long Heathrow Xtended are average. Those who have multiple highly-detailed add-ons and want to fly into Heathrow might consider a higher-end computer. The software / hardware requirements are: FSX w/ SP2 or Acceleration Pack. Welcome to Heathrow. From 15 February, all arrivals to the UK will be required to quarantine at home, or if you are travelling from a country on the “red list” (sometimes called the “travel ban list”), in a Government quarantine hotel. Whether you are quarantining at home or in a hotel, you will also be required to undertake two mandatory COVID-19 tests under new tougher enforcement.

Welcome to Heathrow. From 15 February, all arrivals to the UK will be required to quarantine at home, or if you are travelling from a country on the “red list” (sometimes called the “travel ban list”), in a Government quarantine hotel. To review Aerosoft’s London Heathrow for X-Plane 11, I must split the modelled airport into several sections otherwise you and I will be lost before we know it! When you think about it, it is very strange for such a big airport to have only two runways – 27L/09R and 27R/09L – but five terminals which are even divided into “A” and “B”.

Over the past 3 days, Zero Dollar Payware has been teasing new projects being worked on by the group. Announcements have been coming for the past 3 days, with the first on Tuesday.

As the name suggests, Zero Dollar Payware set out to improve the quality of freeware in X-Plane. Founded by lead developer StableSystem, the group recently hired a group of new developers, likely fueling this new chain of announcements from the group.


ZDP is behind many of X-Planes, biggest freeware sceneries, having tackled airports such as Anchorage and collaborating with Sea2Sky on Tokyo Narita. The group, most recently teamed up with iniBuilds to produce Hawarden Airport to accompany the release of the iniBuilds Beluga. The airport utilised the SAM Plugin to drive animations at the Beluga Loading Station to enable users to close the doors around the aircraft. Hawarden Airport is available, free of charge, on the iniBuilds Forums.

Also currently in the works by the group is Seoul Incheon Airport. The airport is currently in the first stage of open beta testing, although users are warned only ground textures are present in this version. To find out more about the project, check out Zero Dollar Payware’s Discord, linked below.

Announcements started on Tuesday evening with the announcement of Gold Coast Airport. The airport is closeby to the larger hub of Brisbane Airport and sees service from airlines such as Virgin Australia and Jetstar, which flies all the way over to Perth, on the opposite side of the country.

The next airport to be announced, shown on Wednesday was Hamburg Finkenwerder, also known as the home of Airbus. The airport came in the form of a teaser with users quickly pinpointing the location due to the in-production aircraft and recognisable design of the atc tower.

The airport will no doubt have a large attraction to a variety of users who wish to either resupply the production plant with their Beluga or deliver a new aircraft to airlines.

The final announcement, posted only minutes ago today was London Heathrow Airport. The massive UK Hub was met with praise by users after the airport has been lacking in X-Plane with no new developments since Aerosoft’s rendition.

Heathrow is a huge transportation link within the whole of the UK with a large variety of unique short and long haul destinations. The airport also serves as British Airways’ home base, seeing service from the airline’s smallest aircraft the A319 to their largest, the A380.
