This Weeks Flight for Wednesday 2nd October 2019 starting at 8.00pm AEST commences a four week flight around Lesotho. For those who do not know, Lesotho is an independent country landlocked within South Africa. Lesotho is a mostly mountainous country similar to Papua New Guinea however without the vegetation and has many very challenging airfields. For this reasons flight times appear relatively short however time will be taken to locate and land.
The flight is based upon scenery created for X-Plane 11.30 by Alex-C downloadable here Lesotho_Africa 1.1. Please note there are two files listed, you only need the file 1.1. Small download only 245KB and is a must have for the flight as most of the airfileds are NOT in X-Plane (nor other simulators.). It is presumed that pilots know how to install Custom Scenery. If not, then there are numerous tutorials available via your search engine.
Unfortunately this series of flights can only really be flown in XP11 although other sims can fly the route and in some cases may even have “better” scenery.
It is also most advantageous but not necessary to create Ortho4xp tiles for the scenery ( you would need about 7 tiles) due to the improved mesh that is also created within the Ortho4xp program. Mountains are quite respectable in default in any case.
PS: After installing scenery do not forget to update the relevant scenery bases in whichever other programs you might use. i.e. FSTramp, PlanG, Little Nav Map etc.
