The New MegaSceneryEarth South Carolina V3 featuring unsurpassed image sharpness, scenery color and clarity, improved scenery features with accurate additional water bodies and topographical data and the latest aerial imagery available taken in 2017.
Y'all in the deep south now as you soar the Flight Simulator skies above The Palmetto State, South Carolina, a state that played a big part in US history and you can now add to your own history of one of the places you've flown.
The land is rich, green and diverse being touched by the Blue Ridge mountains in the upstate to the flattest land you'll ever fly as you navigate your way over the low country enroute to the famous and stunningly beautiful historic city of Charleston and you can even see all of that history from the vantage point of your cockpit.
Then turn heading 030 and make your way towards the golfing capital of the world, Myrtle Beach on the Atlantic coast. One town, 125 golf courses and counting. And you'll see every one of them from your cockpit.
There's thousands of hours of flying to be done over the 32,000 square miles of diverse terrain, all recreated from 50 cm per pixel aerial photography and over 173 airports for you to use as landing and departure points as you enjoy the scenery.
The large size of this state enables you to enjoy flights of up to 250 miles from border to border. Enjoy South Carolina!
Features New AtmosCLEAR™ Image Clarity
South Carolina imagery is processed using our proprietary AtmosCLEAR™ image processing. AtmosCLEAR™ is a post production image processing technique that simulates the image being photographed in a vacuum to eliminate all atmospheric haze and artifact. It's clear of atmosphere. The result is a crystal clear mathematically optimally contrasted image.
Fly South Carolina Both Day and Night
South Carolina blends seamlessly with FSX and Prepar3D night scenery so that dawn and dusk feature a blend of aerial imagery and night lighting while the scenery transitions to full day or full night where all default FSX and Prepar3D night scenery displays.
Complete South Carolina Hydrography
South Carolina also features Flight Simulator water effects on all lakes, ponds and reservoirs greater than 5 acres from the national hydrographic database. If the water body is greater than 5 sq km, then its shorelines are hand etched pixel by pixel for highly accurate shorelines. Wide rivers also have hand etched shorelines and banks. The raw photographic water body is left untouched with the result being an authentic variety of different water colors that highlight specific properties e.g. mineral lakes whose color is maintained. Where possible water surface artifact is removed from the image. For users who like to see the water bodies as they are, then simply turn off the simulator water effects and you will see the native aerial images of the water bodies as you fly. Specific characteristics of narrower rivers require that we do not apply water effect to narrow rivers and creeks for a better scenery result.
