Nantes is a city in Loire-Atlantique on the Loire, 50 km (31 mi) from the Atlantic coast. The city is the sixth-largest in France, with a population of 303,382 in Nantes and a metropolitan area of nearly 950,000 inhabitants. With Saint-Nazaire, a seaport on the Loire estuary, Nantes forms one of the main north-western French metropolitan agglomerations.

It is the administrative seat of the Loire-Atlantique department and the Pays de la Loire région, one of 18 regions of France. Nantes belongs historically and culturally to Brittany, a former duchy and province, and its omission from the modern administrative region of Brittany is controversial.

Nantes was identified during classical antiquity as a port on the Loire. It was the seat of a bishopric at the end of the Roman era before it was conquered by the Bretons in 851. Although Nantes was the primary residence of the 15th-century dukes of BrittanyRennes became the provincial capital after the 1532 union of Brittany and France. During the 17th century, after the establishment of the French colonial empire, Nantes gradually became the largest port in France and was responsible for nearly half of the 18th-century French Atlantic slave trade. The French Revolution resulted in an economic decline, but Nantes developed robust industries after 1850 (chiefly in shipbuilding and food processing). Deindustrialisation in the second half of the 20th century spurred the city to adopt a service economy.

In 2020, the Globalization and World Cities Research Network ranked Nantes as a Gamma world city. It is the fourth-highest-ranking city in France, after ParisLyon and Marseille. The Gamma category includes cities such as AlgiersOrlandoPortoTurin and Leipzig. Nantes has been praised for its quality of life, and it received the European Green Capital Award in 2013. The European Commission noted the city's efforts to reduce air pollution and CO2 emissions, its high-quality and well-managed public transport system and its biodiversity, with 3,366 hectares (8,320 acres) of green space and several protected Natura 2000 areas.

Addon history:

v1.0: initial release

v2.0: overall optimization:

This is a major update that optimizes the package, as it drastically reduces the number of texture files:

- less files on the package:

before: 21419 files

after: 1659 files

- reduced CPU footprint

- reduced loading time at startup

- less CPU load, so it can leads to better perfs depending on the config

- better road traffic integration


- Fix some texture flickering issues

- Fix a big issue with the LOD management system, due to the way Google Earth Decoder places and sizes the tiles. Now, there should not be any FPS issues, and framerate should be better and more consistent

v3.1: change LOD settings

v3.2: Fix flickering issues

v3.3: Add a fix for possible CTD issues ( https://flightsim.to/blog/creators-guide-fix-ctd-issues-on-your-scenery )

v3.4: Change LODs settings

v3.5: reduced package size

v3.6: remove Stade de la Beaujoire for WU4 world update compatibility

v3.7: fix railway bridge

Remove old nantes and beaujoire or thalixte-beaujoire folders. Extract thalixte-nantes folder into the Community folder.

    Thanks for all of your efforts they are all truly great.

    As someone who has tried (and failed!) over and over to follow the instructions for doing a city from Google (obviously I am doing something wrong - all seems fine until I go to import it into MSFS when I just get lots of 'Unknowns' and it all fails!), could you possibly look at doing Milton Keynes and Luton northern airport approach. Please Please Please.
    I will keep trying, but failing so often is quite disheartening! 😞

    Salut Thalixte,
    J'ai de la famille a Nantes et c'est un vrai plaisir de survoler la ville et de retrouver les coins familiers, petit bémol pour le Maillé Brézé qui est coulé dans la Loire dans l'état actuel de la photogrammétrie... :/

    Cela reste tout de même un travail fabuleux comme à chaque fois, de très bonnes perfs, au dessus de 45 fps.

    Merci pour ton travail!

    Great addition , great perfs, above 45fps with RX 5600 XT and R5 3600.

    It is great that you are uploading these package optimizations for all your sceneries. Welcome relief for my SSD (and potentially also helpful for performance, I would presume). Thank you!

    Tres beau travail, j'ai aucun soucis de performance même avec l'addon Nantes Atlantique ! Juste ma remarque , je sais pas si pour une future mise a jour s'il y a possible d'exclure les arbres généré du processus qui ressemble de près à des rocher gris mais pas à des arbres ... ! Merci

    Very good work, I have no performance issue even with the Nantes Atlantique addon ! Just my remark, I don't know if for a future update, if it is possible to exclude the trees generated from the process which closely resembles gray rocks ... Thank you

    Test de la nouvelle mouture, très grosse baisse de perf à l'approche de Nantes tout juste passer le NDB de la roche sur yon, survol de la ville compliqué, correct en éloignement, bizarre

      Etrange. C'est justement l'inverse qui doit se produire (en tout cas, c'est la cas chez moi)

    Tester et j'ai eu une grosse baisse de performances en arrivant sur Nantes avec une configuration graphique en High, sinon sur l visuel c'est l'éclate 😊

    Beau travail. L'intégration dans le scenery par défaut est parfaite.
    Plusieurs problèmes de planéité de l'eau de la Loire autour de l'île de Nantes. C'est dommage.

    Félicitations pour ce chouette travail sur les villes françaises.
    Sais tu ce qu'est devenu COMOLAS qui avait posté plusieurs villes qui ont disparu de flihtsim.to ?? Merci

      Ah, je ne savais pas qu'il avait enlevé ses villes, mais je suppose qu'il attend de les retravailler.

      comme ville, ce qui m'intéresse, c'est la ville de Valence...
      je ne sais pas cette agglomération figure dans tes projets futurs ?

    Beautiful scenery !
    Is it only me who see a water stop between Trentemoult and the western point of the island of Nantes?

    Pour info, j'essai de recréer LFJR mais je galère énormément. Je l'avais fait pour XPLANE mais pas facile de changer de système. (Pour info, le lien vers la scène XPLANE :https://xpfr.org/?body=scene_accueil&sc=292)

      Il existe déjà une version pour l'aéroport de Nantes très bien faite mais payante. Je l'ai.
