Lausanne is the capital city and biggest town of the canton of Vaud in Romandy, Switzerland. A municipality, it is situated on the shores of Lake Léman (French: Le/Lac Léman). It faces the French town of Évian-les-Bains, with the Jura Mountains to its north-west. Lausanne is located 62 kilometres (38.5 miles) northeast of Geneva.

The municipality Lausanne has a population of about 140,000, making it the fourth largest city in Switzerland, with the entire agglomeration area having about 420,000 inhabitants (as of January 2019). The metropolitan area of Lausanne-Geneva (including Vevey-MontreuxYverdon-les-Bains, and foreign parts) was over 1.2 million inhabitants in 2000.

Lausanne is a focus of international sport, hosting the International Olympic Committee (which has recognized the city as the "Olympic Capital" since 1994), the Court of Arbitration for Sport and some 55 international sport associations. It lies in a noted wine-growing region. The city has a 28-station metro system, making it the smallest city in the world to have a rapid transit system. Lausanne hosted the 2020 Winter Youth Olympics.

Addon history:

v1.0: initial release

v2.2: Change LODs settings
v2.3: New changes on LODs settings

Known bugs and issues:

  • because the photogrammetry data have been retrieved in winter, photogrammetry trees seem to be burnt (they do not have their leafs)
  • somme traffic issues in the old town

thank you for this scenery. it looks great... is the photogrammetry-skin you used solid? in my projects i can fly through it, in your scenery i crashed. but possibly there was the standard scenery hidden behind it. it would be great if its possible to land on our created sceneries
And, again, THANKS for this v4
Dude, thank you so much to maintain it update !
What a great scenery! After I saw how beautiful your scenery looks like, I wanted to create one also. Can you maybe help me with Google Earth Decoder? Once i load my Project in MSFS my scenery doesnt show up. It just said "unknown" in the objects section. Have you ever had this issue? And do you know a solution or why it worked for you? Hope you can help me 😊

Kind regards
Thank you. Leaving in Romanel... too bad. But enjoyed flighing over the city at sunset
Mille merci ! Je suis de Lausanne et là franchement ça va me changer mon quotidiens à jamais. Merci !
You've done another great job. I downloaded all the Scenry you made. I always thank you.
Very nice work! Well done.
Once thing though: I think it would be great if you could remove all these rather ugly gray "trees" from Google earth and use the much nicer trees of MSFS2020 instead.
thank you so much
fantastic job,
could you do the city of Geneva?
nice you realize my city thank you ;=))
great job, can you also do Geneva?
Legend mate ! As usual, performance is stunning with your mods! 6/5 stars 😀
