#Real-Life #Nature #Sightseeing #Photogrammetry Italy Exclusive Drag and Drop
The Langkofel Group (LadinSaslonchItalianGruppo del Sassolungo) is a massif in the (western) Dolomites. It separates Gröden (to the north) and the Fassa valley (to the south), as well as the Sella massif (to the east) and the Rosengarten (to the west). Northwest of the Langkofel is the Seiser Alm. The highest point in the range is the eponymous Langkofel with a height of 3,181 metres. Taken together, the summits of the Langkofel form an arc which is only open towards the northwest. Within this arc there is only one small mountain, the Langkofelkarspitze, so that the group surrounds a kind of "inner courtyard".

Nearest airport: Bolzano-Bozen [LIPB] (17 nm west)
Otherwise you could download the great Locher Sarentino Airfield [
LOCH] by Alex (15 nm northwest).

    The scenery is great. Hope you don't mind, I ended up making a video of it. The folklore of this mountain is equally fascinating.

    Beautiful! They don't blend well with the surroundings, though.
    How come the rocks look purplish?
    Can you adjust that?

    WOW. Really beautiful. I spend my winter and summer holidays here and I really appreciate the quality and fidelity of your work. I second the request for Alpe di Siusi (Seiser Alm) and Sciliar, although I am aware that Google maps is also inadequate, if you have the time and patience. The Dolomites need scenery like this. As htfey wrote: this is worthy of a paid version.

    Please include Seiser Alm in your plans, it is a well known paragliding venue and R/C soaring field with awesome flight conditions for soaring in MSFS.

    Wanderful job. Congratulation! I am trying to improve one mountain in my area, even if google earth data are not good enought, but I got the following issue: the height of the cube / gizmo is almost double the height of the tile, that is very far away (black line in the picture): https://drive.google.com/file/d/1j4iYQFuEOImz4MiMKMiLcHR9CiErvMTe/view?usp=sharing. Since I usually rely on the cube / gizmo to identify the outlines of the scenario, this makes it very difficult for me to trace the terraforming polygon etc.

    This is one of the most beautiful mod I had seen. Worthy of a paid version. The video showcases how beautiful this scene is. Great Job!

    Wonderful work, Giovist! E credo che per te sarebbe un nonnulla lo scenario di Asiago. E perdonami l'impertinenza della richiesta.

      Ciao e grazie! Purtroppo dipende molto dalla qualità delle immagini satellitari disponibili e dall'SDK di FS2020 che troppo spesso genera errori. Chissà, prima o poi qualcuno ci riuscirà... 😊

    Even for me frame killer: from 40 to 15-19 fps ... Too bad, the scenery is enchanting, wonderful.

      It's weird, I don't have any fps drop with my mid level pc. Misteries of FS2020!

    Beautiful scenery !!
    It looks the same as you see in Google Earth and Google Maps, but here show !!!!!

    I have old meshes in .bgl format for fsx that cover all the alps. The resolution is not in the least comparable to your scenario, but in the expectation of better they would greatly improve the current one. Do you know if a conversion is possible?

    Thanks for the scenery and the info !!

      Thank you! I'm sorry I can't tell you if conversion is possible. Maybe someone more skilled can help us.

    Very good scenery, but an absolute frame killer. From 50 - 60 fps down to 16 - 20 fps

      It's weird, I don't have any fps drop with my mid level pc. Misteries of FS2020! However a new lighter version is in the works... stay tuned!
