Do you like flying VFR and watching the World below you? Do you sometimes feel that something is missing? We Love VFR is here to help you. We Love VFR is a free add-on for Microsoft Flight Simulator that adds thousands of new VFR-friendly objects. In this version, you get communication, radio, and tv antennas, chimneys, cooling towers, radar domes, construction cranes, and satellite/radio telescope dishes. I have plans for many more.

What’s New In This Update?

  • Reworked handling of construction cranes. Now we include only sites older than one year, but not older than 4. Also, verified all cranes near runways.
  • Added more accurate data for Austria with verified all smokestacks and all other objects over 100 m.
  • Added some more crosses in the Alps.
  • Fixed one of the smaller chimneys’ LOD issue.
  • Incorporated data correction requests made by users.

What Does We Love VFR Include?

  • Over 150,000 objects were placed in Region 1.
  • Coverage of all Europe, Africa, and part of the Middle East.
  • In this version mobile communication, tv, and radio antennas, chimneys, cooling towers, flare stacks, large and mountaintop crosses, radar domes, construction cranes, and satellite/radio telescope dishes.
  • Smoke and steam effects for chimneys and cooling towers wide and temperature dependant
  • Puffin AI* correct placement and appearance of objects**
  • Included detailed obstacle data from 30 countries (list below)
  • Over 100 custom models
  • Lower spec PC-friendly
  • Much more planned

How To Install It?
Find your „Community” directory and just copy “a-puf-we-love-vfr-region1” there. That’s it. That’s it. If you’re updating my addon, remove the old version before installing the new one.
If you have a conflicting addon refer to the included ReadMe file.

Warning: To get satellite dishes/radio telescopes you need to have installed “USA Points of Interest” by Asobo, from the official World Update USA. It’s available in the marketplace for free.

Known Issues:

  • in very rare cases there might be an office building instead of a chimney (I don’t mean cooling towers, these are not implemented in the mod at all… yet). Same with the office building in place of the demolished cooling tower. This is a case of mismatched data between Asobo and OSM and has to be fixed manually.
  • most of my objects are switched off on photogrammetry to avoid conflicts. Unfortunately, photogrammetry boundaries are sometimes different than real photogrammetry coverage. Because of that objects that are close to photogrammetry areas might not appear at all. If you find an object like this, just report it to me so I can switch it on.
