Disclaimer: This is a huge photogrammetry package and might need higher PC specs to perform well!


It does not matter wheter you'd want to feel like Mozart or relive 'The Sound of Music', 'James Bond' and 'Knight and Day'. With this scenery package I got all of you covered.
This download features photogrammetry data of the inner city / old town of Salzburg, Austria.


Salzburg (literally "Salt Fortress") is the capital city of the State of Salzburg and fourth-largest city in Austria. In 2020, it had a population of 156,872.
Salzburg's historic centre is thus renowned for its Baroque architecture and is one of the best-preserved city centres north of the Alps, with 27 churches. It was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. The city has three universities and a large population of students. Tourists also visit Salzburg to tour the historic centre and the scenic Alpine surroundings. Salzburg was the birthplace of the 18th-century composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Because of its history, culture, and attractions, Salzburg has been labeled Austria's "most inspiring city."
Fly from LOWS (Salzburg International Airport).

Features
Color corrected photogrammetry data of the complete inner city of Salzburg.
Added night lighting at old town center, as google photogrammetry is pretty dark at night.
Added POIs for easier navigation. You can turn them off in your assistance settings.

Known Issues
Mediocre GPU performance above the city center.
Green color (foliage) still slighty to bright in comparison with Bing maps generic color.

I am currently working on fixing these issues.

How to install?

As per usual just unzip the download with WinRAR or a similar software and copy it into your Community-folder. If you struggle with this, please refer to one of the many great tutorials out there.



Enjoy your flight above the Austrian city of Salzburg!

    This looks fabulous and performs pretty well for what it is.

    Unfortunately, it's not fully compatible with Digital Design's LOWS. It looks like they model some of the city center, too, and the two sceneries fight over the water with the end result being some pretty bad flickering:

    I can't fault the creator for that, but if any change could be made to avoid that it would make it even more awesome. :)

    Hi, sorry for the late response! And thanks for your comment and bug report. Yes, that glitching is kinda 50:50 my fault and asobos fault. They seem to slightly changed the topography with the latest update (there were also reports for prague), on the other hand, I shouldve removed the water area from googles import. Its just kind of hard to do when using the "google maps importer" tool.. ther is not much to work on, as it directly imports into the game.
    Will see what I can do, whenever I get my head around it!
    Merry christmas my friend!

    Ja, leider sind die Photogrammetry Daten nicht für Spiele optimiert. Habe wohl etwas mit den LODs gespielt um die fps etwas zu erhöhen, aber es ist zweifelsohne eine Herausforderung für jede GPU. Danke für Deinen Kommentar!

    Hallo! Vielen Dank, sieht top aus!! Wenn es nicht so aufwendig ist, könnten Sie bitte die Barmsteine in Hallein generieren? Vielen Dank.

    Vielen Dank für Deinen Kommentar. Leider ist für die Barmsteine kein Photogrammetry Material verfügbar. Vielleicht gibts ja bald ein Update dazu!

    Thank you. So you only have problems with Linz and not with Salzburg? Thats impossible, because Salzburg is far more demanding on your specs. There has to be something else wrong. I guarantee you, its not my scenery pack.
    Can you please provide further information on your error, so we can figure it out?

    Hi,
    Thank you so much for your wonderful rendition of my hometown!
    I have lived at many places throughout the world, but Salzburg always was, still is, and always will be where my heart belongs.
    Just wish that you could enlarge the area of photogrammetry in order to get rid of those ugly Asobo high rise buildings!
    All the best,
    Werner

    Thank you so much for your comment! Glad to hear you are enjoying this scenery. At the moment its not feasable to add the outskirts of Salzburg, as this package is already really big and takes a long time to load. There is another scenery pack available with Hangar 7 and Schloss Anif however, I will try and add a link to it, once I've found it again.

    What i observed is that first start of msfs loading time is really long with Salzburg scenery.
    Without it is quite faster.
    I know big file - i hope you can improve this.

    Yes, you are right. The problem is known and discussed in comments down below. The only thing I could do about it right now is to delete 1 of 4 LODs (there should be at least 3 LODs, otherwise theres no point to it). That would shorten the loading process by 25% I guess.
    Lets wait for an update to the Earth2MSFS plugin, maybe then its easier to mitigate these problems.

    In the meantime, I recommend using the Addon Linker available on this website. Its fantastic, please support its developer!

    Just bought you some coffees, but my name didnt appear there for some reason. You've provided us with several beautiful cities/towns that I had the pleasure of visiting a few years ago, such as Vienna, Salzburg, Prague, and my personal favourite Hallstatt! Thank you for your efforts and the wonderful job. You deserve those coffees =)

    32.267 files increases the loading time from MSFS quite a lot. Why does this City have so many files and Vienna only 1045 files. Maybe you can work on it because it take really more than 5 Minutes now to start the game with Salzburg in the community folder!

    Its quite simple my dear friend. A quick flight over both cities or just reading the titles should have been sufficient to clarifiy this. One is a landmark pack, consisting of only the most recognizable buildings, the other is a complete photogrammetry map of the inner city.
    I was working on a Salzburg Landmark Pack, but it was trolling me quite a bit. I was not able to do it well, so I went for the photogrammetry way. Sorry if it affects your loading time.
    I recommend using Addon Linker, to just load the scenery required for your planned flight: https://flightsim.to/file/1572/msfs-addons-linker

    Sorry if I have offended you. That was not my intention. I find the cities you offer wonderful. Especially Salzburg is really wonderful. I was just shocked that my FS took so long to start. I thought it would never start again. Thanks for the hint to the tool AddonsLinker. I have already installed it. This is very helpfull. And of course Salzburg also gets 5 stars from me. You all do a great job! Thanks for that!

    No, I was not offended :D I was just stating how it is. It would be even heavier on GPUs if I did all of Vienna as photogrammetry, that would not work, I guess. I will try to work on the LODs of Salzburg however, maybe there are a few frames left to optimize :) That would not benefit the loading time though.
    Thanks for the 5 stars!

    Your Salzburg, Graz, Innsbruck sceneries are wonderful. I am loving it! Thank you very much for your efforts! Just a bit sad to hear, that Vienna won't get your "treatment". Maybe future versions of Earth2MSFS will allow that.

    There is already a Vienna Modpack available on my page. So yes, there is a treatment ;)
