The Braehead shopping complex is approximately 7 miles from Glasgow City centre and 4 miles from Glasgow International airport (EGPF)

The complex is made up of the Soar indoor ski slope with restaurants and indoor activities, the main shopping centre (Mall), the retail park, Sainsburys supermarket and a favourite of many a Krispy Kreme take-away

This mod contains the main areas of the complex:

  • Main shopping centre (Mall) was missing now added (user error on my part)
  • Retail park
  • Sainsburys supermarket
  • Krispy Kreme take-away

The Soar indoor ski slope is already published and can be downloaded on the Flightsim.to website:

"Soar Braehead Shopping Centre, near Glasgow, Scotland" now added to this mod

All mod textures have been adjusted to blend into the surrounding MSFS default scenery by adjusting the blue tint and reducing the metallic factor, credit to "Flying Theston"

The default night lighting is sufficient so I do not feel that it needs additional lighting unless others disagree and request that I further enhance the scenery

Standard installation: copy package files into your Community folder. 

Please note: due to this being my first attempt at creating scenery each building was created individually in it's own zip file therefore you will need to download all five files and add them individually to your Community folder, sorry next time I will be able to upload in a single file to make it easier on those who download my scenery.

    Thanks for making Braehead, adding to my virtual experience of revisiting places familiar IRL - but currently unable to go there!
