(Update 06/21: WU5 and OrbX Mesh Hotfix) [Freeware] Iceland Overhaul

06/21/21 VERSION 1.7.5: WU5 and OrbX Iceland Mesh Hotfix

This hotfix fixes some clipping with this addon and the OrbX mesh along with fixing some issues present in the OrbX mesh itself around Reykjavik.

ICELAND OVERHAUL

This addon currently contains:

  • Numerous landscape fixes

  • Compatibility and some fixes for most Iceland Mesh addons

  • Proper Tree coverage to within a few percent of real life

  • 195 unique structures including famous landmarks

  • Lighthouses and radio masts with working lights

  • Adds relevant ships and objects to ports in all costal cities

  • Animated sea life around Iceland’s shores (Stick around the blue whales POI for a bit to see a show!)

The tree coverage fixes were based on a map that shows tree coverage of the country. The structures cover iconic and VFR landmarks such as Harpa, and the DC3 crash site along with many other buildings within Reykjavik and the rest of Iceland to bring it to life. There are multiple POI markers around the shores of northern Iceland where you can fly to see Orcas and Blue Whales!

Thanks, these are greatly appreciated and a massive improvement :+1:

No problem! There are still gonna be areas that aren’t fixed just due to how bad the terrain is right now. Seems like 80% of the landmass has something going on. I got a good chunk of it though and gonna keep doing passes to find more!

No matter how much of it you’ve done, you’ve managed to fix something in a week that ruined major sight seeing/intresting areas. Will definitely be checking Iceland out more now

Thanks! Yeah I was a bit bummed on my first flight through, it was one of the spots I was looking forward to most. Atleast now we can have some breathing room from the water monoliths. I hope Asobo can get some higher res terrain mesh data for it.

Hmm. Is this why I keep crashing to desktop when I try to load in Iceland?

crashing for me too

Nice works again you can submit your files, your Anchorage and Southern National Parks already there https://www.msfsaddons.org/

just in case, it is normal I don’t see your files dispayed on MSFS content manager or content manager is reserved for payware\official contents?

Yeah that’s normal! It seems like no community addons show up in the manger right now.
