#Nature #Sightseeing Germany Exclusive
Important: The mainfile contains the Pipistrel Virus aircraft model (premium deluxe version only)

My first MSFS construct. I hope you like it and I know there's still room for improvement ;-)
Fly along the beautiful Neckar valley from Heidelberg up to Stuttgart.

Available in many languages*1 such as:  DE, ES, FR, IT, PL, PT, RU
Available for two*2 predefined aircraft models such as: Asobo XCub*3 and Pipistrel Virus*4

Tour details:
The tour starts in the Rhine plain on the airfield of a nice city called Weinheim. You pass Mannheim, following the Rhine river upwards a couple of miles until you reach Speyer. A left turn after Speyer brings you straight to Heidelberg, the gateway to the Neckar Valley. You have a short stopover there before you start entering the Neckar valley and it's scenic surrrounding. After two more stopovers and passing Heilbronn, your trip end up on the Intl.airport of Stuttgart. Duration is round about one hour, depending on your timing and interuptions.

Not everything in the 3D-world appears so far then it should be. There are still some issues with objects and landscapes. However I hope you enjoy the flight and visit some nice areas of Germany. And maybe time after time even more issues will vanish.

Third party recommendations: (Thanks to the guys who develop these sceneries, airports etc.)
Highly recommended:
ETIE Heidelberg Military Airfield: https://flightsim.to/file/3829/heidelberg-army-airfield-etie
EDDS Stuttgart Intl.Airport: https://flightsim.to/file/3437/stuttgart-airport-edds-by-gravity-edds-team   (Highly recommended!!)
Stuttgart - Mercedes Benz Arena: https://flightsim.to/file/560/mercedes-benz-arena-stuttgart
Stuttgart - Landmarks: https://flightsim.to/file/702/stuttgart-landmarks
VFR - Landmarks: https://flightsim.to/file/2605/we-love-vfr-region-1

Normal recommendation:
Heidelberg castle (some contrast issues but not so strong*5): https://flightsim.to/file/2042/heidelberg-castle
Heidelberg observatory (you might not see it since it's on the mountain): https://flightsim.to/file/1758/observatory-haus-der-astronomie
Königstuhl towers: https://flightsim.to/file/1676/konigstuhl-towers

Not recommended (not very well performing with the surrounding area*5)
Heidelberg Oldtown "Altstadt": https://flightsim.to/file/2113/old-town-altstadt-heidelberg

How to install:
Both aircraft models can be downloaded seperatly and have to be extracted. After extration copy each complete folder into your community folder.
If you are not aware about where's your community folder located, please follow these instructions: https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/content.php?21235-Finding-The-MSFS-2020-Community-Folder

*1 most of the languages are translated with an online translator. So if there are some strange translations you either can switch to english or german or forward me a translation which fits better.
*2 You can install both flight models at the same time.
*3 This aircraft is available in all MSFS2020 versions.
*4 Only available in the premium deluxe version or if you bought it additionally.
*5 I don't want to offend the developer, I know it's hard work. However since these rather strong contrast differences vs. the surroundling area exists, I rather recommend to not install until developer has fixed it.

Have fun, cheers BWilli

    Just an FYI, there is no Stuttgart in default MSFS. Just flew the last leg and it's not there, so that airport addon should be a requirement. 😉 Otherwise, stellar!

      Hi Jeremy, yes you are right, there's no Stuttgart [EDDS] Airport existing so far.
      Well afaik a Stuttgart [EDDS] is technically existing in MSFS but....just as a more or less lousy field where you can land (as you have probably noticed). So afaik from a technical perspective it'll work.
      However if you still think I should highlight the recommendation even more especially for EDDS, please let me know.
      Cheers Dirk

    great job, I'd love to see more Bush Trips with Ultralight planes!
    some of the descriptions could be a little bit shorter (less information) 😊

      Hi Rull, thanky for your comments.

      --------The selected models ------------------
      It's somehow a toipic with the models (you never can fullfill every users wishes 😉 which one to select since there are always boundaries.
      First depending on the software you paid for Standard, Deluxe, Deluxe Premium.
      So as developer you are always on the safe side if you choose just one out of the standard (which is i.e. the Asobo XCub). I tried to establish two but they only differ by the pre-selected plane but both need to have the complete installation material for convenience. So. unfortunately it's not foreseen by the MSFS developers to select your own model for the bushtrip.

      Unfortunately I miss that, too....but....I found a interim solution and here's how to solve it 😉

      Since most of the data are available by a texteditor - If you like to go for another plane (this works even with the official files) you can use this instructions (for sure own risk). Open the corresponding bushtrip folder somewhere in there, in the sub you'll find one file called *.FLT .Normally it's named like "bushtripname.FLT".
      For safety reasons make a backup and name it i.e. like xxxx.flt.backup or similar.
      After that open the *.FLT file with a good editor (I recommend Notepad++.)

      First: Search for a group called: [Sim.0] or similar.
      Beyond this group you'll find the defined plane:
      i.e. Sim=Cessna 152 Asobo
      If you replace now the name "Cessna 152 Assobo" then you fly this bushtrip with any other plane - For sure at your own risk - Since you never know if the trip is designed for this plane but as long as you remain close to the origin, I think it'll work. So, don't change a Cessna by a A320 😉
      After replacement save it and restart MSFS.
      (For sure the mission should be in the community folder. This works as well with the official bushtrip. You have to search for the same FLT file.
      But in both cases I highly recommend to do a file copy before you change.
      And last but not least. the replaced flight model name must fit to the internal software name and this often differs to the public name.

      i.e. Here's a list for some model names.
      When you replace the Cessna by the Mudry you have to do it like this:
      Sim=Cessna 152 Asobo -> Sim=Mudry Cap 10 C

      Have fun. And by the way I'm already thinking about a small software where everybody is able to switch some parameters (i.e. like switching the flight model mentioned above) before he starts flying the bush- or landing trips.
      So this will offer additional benefit for these trips. Only thing is I have to reactivate my programming talents which are rather not used for a long time 😞

      ----The comments--------
      Yes, I know they are sometimes "long" but...since there are not really necessary informations for the flight. Compass data are available anyway.
      So I wrote a little bit more what you can see and what will be there. I enjoy it getting some more infos about the surrounding I fly and not just turn left or right.
      But, you need not to read it, if you don't want. And finally, it was my first bushmissiontrip trial. It was really lot of work even though you do not really see it, especially with trial and error and learning the how to, using these great community tools bushmissiongen and flightinjector even though you do not really see it.

      Cheers , BWilli

      I really like the longer descriptions. I feel a better sense of place and significance of what I am flying over. I don't like trips with strictly dry directions.

    Thank you very much. It is a lot of fun to discover the Neckar. I live in the upper part of the Neckar, but maybe this one will come too.
    It's nice what all is possible in the new sim.

      Yes, the Neckar valley is very beautiful, even to ride by (motor)bike. Unfortunately there are still so many optical bugs. It would look even more impressive when the small towns and lot‘s of surrounding castles would be in a good shape. So finally when you have the possibility you should visit it in real. I added some first impression descriptions next to most of the waypoints as you’ll see.

      Jain, nur dass was bereits in MSFS2020 mitgeliefert wurde (die Aufnahme ist im Ultra Modus enstanden)
      Yes and no: The picture is taken with ultra settings from the so far existing MSFS2020 software - So no additional sceneries etc. so far.
