News_ - Scenery Released - KWYS - Yellowstone Airport and National Park by X-Codr Designs.jpg


I call them fly-in, fly-around sceneries. Which means you fly in via usually a commuter aircraft, and then take in the local experiences via a smaller GA or Helicopter, and if you wish, then fly-out again. The focus here in this case is the fly-in airport KWYS, and the fly-around visual aspects of the famous Yellowstone National Park. This scenery is developed by X-Codr, known for his excellent KDEN - Denver scenery: Scenery Update : KDEN - Denver International Airport HD v1.5 by X-Codr Designs.


KWYS and Yellowstone National Park is a sprawling scenery, covering over 1,200 square miles in custom forests and over 3,000 miles in high resolution colour corrected NAIP ortho imagery. In addition, numerous points of interest throughout the park are included such as an accurately erupting Old Faithful, Grand Prismatic Spring, Mammoth Hot Springs, and even Yellowstone Falls. And of course, KWYS - West Yellowstone Airport, the town of West Yellowstone, and numerous others geothermal features and points of interest throughout the park are included in the scenery.

  • All buildings feature ultra-high-resolution textures.
  • All buildings feature advanced PBR normal maps for realistic reflections and bump mapping.
  • All buildings are highly detailed, down to even door handles.
  • All buildings feature "lite" interiors to give windows more depth.
