Churfirsten (Mountain Range) are seven Mountain Peaks between Walensee (Lake) and the Valley of Toggenburg in Canton St. Gallen (Switzerland). The highest Peak has an Elevation of 2,306m (7,566 ft). The southern front is very steep and on the eastern end there is a canyon very popular for Base Jumper (seen in the Movie Point Break II). The northern back of the Mountains is a pretty Skiing Area. The next Airports are Flugplatz Mollis LSZM (Swiss Airforce), and Flugplatz Bad Ragaz LSZE. The Highway in the Valley between Bad Ragaz and the Churfirsten once was used from Swiss Military as a Backup runway. Good luck when you try to land there!

The Scenery is a mix of two seasons. The Google Data are shot in Winter, the MSFS Data look like Summer.


This scenery has been extracted from Google Maps, hence all 3D credits goes to Google.
This scenery has been generated with the Google Earth Decoder tool (credits to /u/Jonahex111):

Extract Scenery_Churfirsten in the Community folder. Don't forget to restart the Microsoft Flight Simulaor after that. Thats it!

    Super Sach, merci!
    I'll write in English rather than German: Great work. It's so sad how the alps look in MSFS2020 :/
    Glad to have some little improvements at least on some mountains thanks to mods like this. It looks good 😊.
    Of course a summer version would be better, since I think the winter version would be automatically possible, but not the summerversion... but I know that's not your fault since the Google data simply shows the mountains in winter.
    PLEASE do not forget to vote for this thread: https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/disappointing-mountain-terrain-in-the-alps-and-many-other-areas/
    The idea is to push Asobo to improve the terrain data of all mountains, especially of the alps. Please join that thread and push the "vote" button 😊.

      good idea to ask asobo for bether terrain. i still voted for it.
      säntis is nearly done. i think this weekend i can add it to flightsim. i hope its not to large. the problem with the season is the same, but its better then before

    Als Toggenburger freu ich mich tieriesch drauf, dies heute Abend auszuprobieren! Habs selbst mal mit meiner Heimatgemeinde Ebnat Kappel versucht, war dann aber bald überfordert. Umso mehr freut es mich, dass hier jemand Spots aus meiner Heimat hochlädt.

    Herzlichen Dank 😊

      cool, ich flieg im sim so oft hier in der gegend rum und fand es einfach schade dass unsere schönen berge im tiefflug hier so rundgeschliffen sind. dann dürfte dich mein nächstes projekt auch interessieren. ich mach mich jetzt nämlich an den säntis und den alpstein. das kenne ich bisher vom gleitschirmfliegen. dann ist im sim der flug-spielplatz in der ostschweiz für mich komplett.

      da freue ich mich sehr drauf. der säntig ist momentan arg rund, auch wenn man immerhin die schwägalp recht gut erkennt.
      und natürlich der ganze alpstein mit hohem kasten usw... wenn man schon nicht hochfahren darf zum brunchen im moment 😊

      bei mir hats übrigens auch nicht aufs erste mal geklappt. hatte dann immer gehofft dass mal jemand st.gallen umsetzt. und irgendwann hab ichs dann einfach nochmal probiert und bin dran geblieben. ebnat kappel hat aber auch in google earth keine genaueren 3D-daten. daher wirst du dort nicht viel machen können. viel spass heute abend

    magnificent mountains good work - as MSFS does almost everything for this, i think that pilots prefer realistic airports and the Poi VFR -its important- LSWM Mannlichen its possible please ?

      i don‘t know how to create airports, because this sceneries are just a skin, and you can not land on it. obe of my next project could be eiger-mönch-jungfrau, but with männlichen it seems to large to handle it... for the moment i try to prepare mt.säntis
