Scenery maker Maps2XPlane has released a string of updates to their line of freeware Antarctica sceneries. The developer, who’s payware portfolio includes renditions of the Faroe Islands and Svalbard, also assists other developers to create custom meshes for their sceneries. The likes of ShortFinal Design, Stairport Sceneries and Aviotek Software all have sceneries with meshes courtesy of Maps2XPlane.

“Happy New Year! It's time for the annual updates of #Antarctica4XPlane.”

Part 1 of the scenery includes the South Orkney Islands and Antarctic Peninsula – it stretches to -76 degrees, infringing on some of the Marie Byrd Land. Part 2 encompasses the Victoria Land and the Transantarctic Mountains. It includes portions of the Ross Ice Shelf, as well as Ross Island. The developer recommends also downloading stand-alone scenery packages that cover McMurdo Station and Scott Base. Part 3 covers the Coats Land and Queen Maud Land, down to -81 degrees.
