FranceVFR Releases Azur Provence-Alpes-Cote for FSX and P3D

img_578e6a92a1693

Not letting Orbx release their Nice scenery first, FranceVFR have jumped ahead and released Azur Provence-Alpes-Cote for FSX and P3D.

Using 1 m/pixel and high definition mesh, Nice will be extremely detailed down to the last building. There’s going to be full autogen coverage, 3D objects and lots of VFR landmarks including lighthoues, ports and important monuments. This will be a fantastic package for people looking forward to flying around VFR within the Azur area.

It remains to be seen whether this will be compatible with the recently released Nice airport from JustSim, but fingers crossed it will work just fine.

The coverage area is incredible impressive:

You can buy it from FranceVFR’s store page NOW for around 35eur.

You can see the feature list below, which has been ‘Google Translated’ due to the product page only being in French!
