NEWS! - Scenery Upgrade : 3D VAL D'Aosta North/South-Area + Matterhorn Park 2.0 by Frank Dainese & Fabio Bellini

 

NEWS_ - Matterhorn Park v2 Header.jpg

 

Zermatt and it's famous landmark in the crooked peak of the Matterhorn (Italian: Cervino) is one of my most famous places I have ever visited, it is very, very special place to me and it has an almost religious aspect about the mountain and the valley.

 

Matterhorn Park 3D by Dainese & Bellini was released in March 2019. The scenery covered both areas on each side of the iconic mountain, with the Swiss Canton of Valais and Zermatt, and on the Italian side Breuil-Cervinia in the Aosta Valley which is a ski resort and township.

 

For the time the scenery was exceptional, but X-Plane in detail also moves on forward. Most of these early Dainese & Bellini sceneries including Matterhorn Park 3D suffered a lot through very basic valley floor textures (the focus was on the mountains, which were extraordinary). So the so called floors even well documented with area objects looked back then a little basic in the simulator...  the later Dainese & Bellini sceneries were far better in this aspect of filling in the floors and matching in the textures throughout the whole scenery in then creating a more whole experience.

 

So here is the upgraded v2.0 Matterhorn Park 3D. There is an UPGRADE discount for this scenery to v2.0 from v1.0, so find the discount coupon on the original downloaded v1.0 scenery invoice page.

 

The Matterhorn Park 3D V2.0 scenery areas have been expanded up to the earlier and separate "Mont Blanc 3D" scenery to match in (cross over) between the two areas to create a vast western Alps explorable zone to a total area of 3500 Square KM.

Who looks out for the Matterhorn when crossing over the Alps!, well this scenery is so good the famous peak stands out as a marker when crossing over north to south or vice-versa. And that is one of the most important aspects of these sceneries, they look sensational to explore canyon like on the ground, but still can soar as highly realistic vistas from a high altitude. If you want realism in mountain ranges, then these sceneries from Dainese & Bellini are the best out there for the X-Plane Simulator.
