This scenery covers all ionian islands including Corfu, Kefallonia, Zakynthos (Zante), Paxoi, Lefkada, Ithaka and Kithira.
All scenery regions were designed at a 0-2 resolution, in other words a satellite resolution of 0-2 meters which ensures the best possible portrayal in FS2004 while it also enables their application in FSX whose display capability offers better results.
The required hard drive space to install all the regions is about 6.5 GB in total while individual regions, for example the Dodecanese, require about 1.3 GB.
Where possibe, satellite imagery of certain sectors that contained objects such as forests and roads was replaced in some regions in a manner that rendered their portrayal accurately despite the cloud cover which made said imagery unusable.
These sceneries do not affect Flight Simulator’s frame rate as they replace their equivalent 256x256 Default Terrain bitmaps. There is an important functional difference, however, due to the new technique applied. Important information on how to tweak FS9.cfg for maximum performance and viewing pleasure can thus be found in Greek Airports Project’s forum.
The satellite imagery in our sceneries for Greece is available for free only for Flight Simulation purposes. If you would like to explore satellite imagery yourself you may use the well known and established Google, Google Earth or Microsoft’s Bing Maps programs.
Many aerodromes have been moved to their actual locations as can be compared to satellite imagery and other sources. The installers correct such aerodromes in their respective GAP scenery regions. For example, a scenery area which does not affect the HSP Base Scenery was created from scratch for the island of Skyros.
