CDB Scenery Design & Maps2XPlane Working on St. Croix for X-Plane

October 14, 2021


A few hours ago, Aerosoft announced on their website that a collaboration between CDB Scenery Design and Maps2XPlane has materialised to produce Saint Croix for X-Plane 11. Like many other works from Maps2XPlane, Aerosoft will be the publisher repping the developers. The announcement is short but pointedly, offering the standard issue features users expect in a scenery product.

Saint Croix is the largest constituent in the collection of islands that make up the US Virgin Islands located in the Caribbean Sea; it is nicknamed "Twin City" due to having two towns occupying the western and northeast end of the island.

The anchoring highlight of this scenery is the terraformation with a custom “photo-terrain-mesh” which stretches across the entire island, a notable specialty of Maps2XPlane, the main air-gateway for the island; Henry E. Rohlsen Airport brings the landmass to life with customised assets decorated throughout the precinct with localised renditions of vegetation, autogen buildings and a reworked road and sea network with dynamic traffic.

The scenery will additionally cover the two towns situated on each end of the island; Christiansted and Frederiksted with the basic landmarks and features, with Christiansted Seaplane Base also modelled in. For more images and the original announcement, head over to their website post.

Threshold encourages informed discussion and debate - though this can only happen if all commenters remain civil when voicing their opinions.
