IMPORTANT!! Check install instructions.

Santander is the capital of the autonomous community and historical region of Cantabria situated on the north coast of Spain. It is a port city located east of Gijón and west of Bilbao with a population of 172,000 (2017).[4]

It is believed to have been a port since ancient times, due to its favorable location, and is documented as far back as the 11th century. Much of the medieval city was lost in the Great Fire of 1941. Today, its remaining old town, beach and other attractions are popular with tourists and other visitors and its economy is mainly service based. The port is still very active and a regular ferry service operates to the United Kingdom. Fish and seafood dominate the local cuisine. Santander notably houses the headquarters of multinational bank Banco Santander, which was founded there.


Scenery
Santander city and surrounding areas based on Google Maps photogrammetry. Check screenshots for covered area map.

 

Installation

This scenery has two versions, you have to choose one:
- Full (High Detail): Download full version files (two files, scenery + textures) and unzip both on same folder (use "Extract here" on 7-zip). Second zip has the textures, so if you don't do this right the scenery will look pink or white.
- Lite (Low Detail): Download Main File and unzip on community folder

Lite version has less detail so it takes less disk space. It is suitable for less powerful machines. It's also useful if you are not planning to fly at less than 1500-2000ft over the city, you won't notice much difference with the full version.

Your scenery destroys some parts of the nice LEXJ airport from beautiful model of the world.

Could you consider to let airports out of your sceneries?

In this one you included the tower and the terminal in your scenery and it conflicts with it.

Same goes with Irun and LESO 3rd party airport, Tenerife and GCXO airport from mk studios.

I really hope u will do something because your sceneries would be great to use with all these addons.

Best regards

Its amazing! Looks great! Thank you!

Hola buenas;

Esta genial el mapeado, pero lamentablemente usa los arboles generados por google maps, de todos modos está genial visualmente mejor que el escenario original.

Santander is nice too ! https://youtu.be/0Ha3UL_3wvw and https://youtu.be/_r_Fhythp1M Thanks !!!

Wow. Just Wow. Heck Wow. Ohh, Wow!!!

I cannot believe how good this is. Thanks so much for extending the scenery to the east. Landing at LEXJ, my wife´s home town, is now just unbeliavable.

Now the color is great, and I still cannot understand how you do it to achieve this frame-rates with such complex scenery. I´m using it at 4K, and still get 45-50 fps, which is astounding. Sure it takes memory (41 out of my 64 gigs) but if you have it, your scenery just thrieves on it and works amazingly well. Others use the same memory to achieve just 15 fps or less...

You are quickly becoming the best scenery designer out there.

Cannot thank you enough.

Really looking forward for your next scenery.
Funciona todo perfecto GENIAL!!!
What a great job, I wish you could do malaga at that quality, it's amazing! the stages in Malaga do not have that quality anywhere.
This is my city, thank you very much !!

great job...wonderful
Muchas gracias from Santander.
To say I´m impressed is an understatement. I´m beyond amazed.
Quite simply, the best photogrammetry city I have seen.
Its very well integrated in the suroundings, which is something I value a lot.

I don´t know how on earth you did it, but despite the great level of detail, my system moves it at 50 fps, far faster than just about any other photogrammetry city (Ryzen 3900x, RTX3080, 64 Gb RAM, everything ultra). By the way, this scenery takes my system to use 33 Gb of RAM, which is the highest RAM usage I have ever seen in FS2020.

Just two very respectful suggestions to improve it even more:

1) It´s a bit too dark and brown. If it could be birghter and whiter it would be great.

2) Please, please, please PLEASE, I beg you, also make the estern part of the city, Peñacastillo and the industrial part close to the airport. That´s where we are going to fly more often while taking off and landing, and it´s a pitty having the default scenery there.

Again, thanks so much. It´s simply astonishing.
This is my town. Great work!!!. Thank you.
THAAAAAAAAANKSSSSSSSSS. ITS AMAZING.
