About

This scenery is the first, full rendition and fully animated of the Skyway Mont Blanc. 

The Skyway is a cable car that connects Courmayeur to Punta Hellbronner, via a middle station located at Pavillon du Mont Frety. After a full overhaul in 2015, it is now known as one of the 8th marvels of the World. 

But the journey doesn’t stops there. The full ride literally fly over the Mont Blanc Glacier with the Panoramique du Glaciers gondola. Starting from Punta Hellbronner tourists and alpinist will have the opportunity to admire the Mont Blanc from a unique view, and after a 35 minutes ride will eventually arrive at the Aiguille du Midi, 3842 meter above sea level. 

And the trip is not yet finished. Another cable car is waiting there to bring you down to Chamonix, via the middle station located at Plan de l’Aiguille

Since the project is made for a Flight Simulator, the Heliport  “Elisuperficie Franco Garda”, (located in Entreves, Courmayeur) as been also created. If offers a base for Search and Rescue missions. You can find it by typing “Entreves” in the Msfs search box or with the fictional ICAO HSKYW

 

FEATURING:

-          All the buildings / cable cars stations involved in the Skyway all round trip: Courmayeur station, Pavillon du Mont Frety station, Punta Hellbronner station, Aiguille du Midi station, Plan de l’Aiguille station and Chamonix station. 

Where available, real world technical drawing has been used to match appearance and dimensions. 

All the models are custom handmade creations, with full PBR texture

The Aiguille du Midi peak has been hand sculpted and covered with procedural texturing, to best fit all the buildings around the mountain.

-          Fully animated cable cars and gondolas. The Skyway, Italian side, has a special animation, the cabin rotates 360° for a spectacular view of the surroundings

-          As an alpinist myself, I can’t miss the opportunity to design the legendary new Torino hut (aka Rifugio Torino Nuovo) has it’s place right under Punta Hellbronner

-          Night lighting in place (as per known light sources) 

 

INSTALLATION:

Drag and drop the folder in Community and you are done. 

The package works perfectly with my Project Lifts scenery, but should be installed AFTER that.  You can control scenery order by editing the Content.xml file

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Due to the mountainous terrain, lot of terraforming has been required to shape the location of the various lifts stations.  The terraforming as been developed to work best with the default mesh, 3d party mesh will lead to missing terrain or terrain intruding inside some of the buildings.

 

LAST MINUTE FIX!

 I forgot to add the exclusion polygons for hellbronner and pavillon, here you can download the fix (it is not needed if you have already installed my projectLifts scenery)

Will update this as upgrade as soon as SU6 will be released (in order to double check compatibility)

Please apologize me!

Thank you for a great work and scenery. although I have Dave's 3D people Library I can not see any peoples inside the moving cable cars but I can see the mountaineer's at the top of Mont Blanc. it would be great and much appreciated if with your great skills you try to do similar moving cable cars between the Matterhorn Mountain and Cervinia at one side and Zermat on the other side.

Santis mountain cable cars scenery in Northern Switzerland, show the people inside the cable cars OK.

I have made a You Tube video of my helicopter flight there.

This is an outstanding work and scenery ! I use to ski in the Pyrenees at Peyragudes and I have seen that the lifts are there (and in most of the Pyrenees sky places). And the new lift from Lac de loudenvielle to Peyragudes is already there! I just have a question (a stupid one) - will the lifts "move" (in winter of course) or will they stay statics? Thank you again !

Où est ce fichier ?

Merci

Brilliant scenery, well done!

A fabulously done addon. This is really superb and deserves to be looked at. What a great idea! Thanks for doing it. I have discovered some minor discrepancies at the middle and top station - I am sending pics to you separately.

This looks great but can anyone tell me how I enter and stay in the car/lifts? I am probably missing something - do I use showcase camera and float into it or something? much appreciated in advance

The best detailed scenery out there today. I did notice that the what seems like a heliport at the top, is not really land able. I made a video, to highlight all the little extra's and fine workmanship, that makes your scenery great. https://youtu.be/cPmDm2lyw90

This is without a doubt my most favorite scenery addon in MSFS. I had no idea these places existed, so getting to fly around them in the sim then go look up real photos and videos has literally changed my life. Now I must go there before I die.

I uploaded an image feel free to use it. Thank you for everything.

Superb !

Downloading it right now, looking forward to this 😊

Looks phenomenal! Is there a way to lock the camera view inside a gondola and actually ride the skyway? I know I know its a flight sim not a gondola sim but I think it would actually be really cool! Thank you for all the work and effort

What an awsome work. I tried to get up to the very top with my helicopter but unsuccessful, only to the halfway building. A great 5 stars it is for me. Seeing those lifts going up and down is a treat.
