02/03/21 VERSION 1.7.2: SEA LIFE

This update fixes new terrain issues around BIBF and BINF, adjusts the speed and animation of the blue whales, and adds in more objects to all coastal city ports to give them more life.


This addon currently contains:

  • Around 1000 landscape fixes

  • Proper Tree coverage to within a few percent of real life

  • 195 unique structures including famous landmarks

  • Lighthouses and radio masts with working lights

  • Adds relevant ships and objects to ports in all costal cities

  • Animated sea life around Iceland's shores (Stick around the blue whales POI for a bit to see a show!)

The tree coverage fixes were based on a map that shows tree coverage of the country. The structures cover iconic and VFR landmarks such as Hallgrimskirkja, Harpa, and the DC3 crash site along with many other buildings within Reykjavik and the rest of Iceland to bring it to life. There are multiple POI markers around the shores of northern Iceland where you can fly to see Orcas and Blue Whales!

Current list of structures includes the following and more: Reykjavík Cathedral, Harpa concert hall, Brautarholtskirkja, and the dc3 crash site, Hallgrímskirkja, Fríkirkjan í Reykjavík, Landakotskirkja, The National Hospital, Reykjavik junior college, The House Cabinet, Reykjavík Art Museum Hafnarhús, Radisson Blu 1919 Hotel, Radisson Blu Saga Hotel, Hljómskálinn, the theater at Vonarstræti 3, and the old school at Laekjargata 14, City Hall, harbor lighthouses, Perlan, Police HQ, pond bridge,Höfðatorg, Kjarvalsstadir Art Museum, the National Center for Cultural Heritage,Hofdi, the National Museum of Iceland, Gamla Bio, the National Library, the Volcano Museum in Stykkishólmur, and the Hellissandur longwave radio mast.

  • Version 1.7.2 February 03, 2021

    This update fixes new terrain issues around BIBF and BINF, adjusts the speed and animation of the blue whales, and adds in more objects to all coastal city ports to give them more life.

  • Version 1.7.1 January 24, 2021

    This update adds blue whales and two accompanying POIs to the north of Iceland. If you stick around the POIs long enough you may see one of them put on a show! I'm going to try and add splash animations when the SDK supports them. The update also adjusts the animations of the orcas so that they are not perfectly synchronized. Check out the second screenshot for a peek.

  • Version 1.7.0 January 21, 2021

    This update adds animated orcas in locations where they would be found in real life! They can be found by looking for the POI markers in north and north-west Iceland. More animals will be added and animations refined after I gauge feedback from this update. Every costal city has had objects added to bring life to the country's ports.

  • Version 1.6.2 January 12, 2021

    This update fixes some mesh conflicts from the newest update (Hverfjall crater interior and the runway at BIRE), removes redundant fixes that are no longer needed with the newest game version, and adjusted other landscape fixes to better fit with the new default mesh.

    Sir, can only agree with all the praise. Fantastic addon. World update class. Did support you. As I mainly fly out of Akureyri I humbly wonder if it would be possible to have any Akureyri landmarks added, like the church. /Cheers

    Thanks for the wonderfull overhauled scenery of Iceland. I`m looking for the Whale`s but can´t findt them. I checked all bays in the northpart from Akureyri Dave last library with animals ist installed.
    Can you pls give me some ideas. Thanks in advance.

      From the world map you can see the POI's for the whales! Zoom in close to the northern waters around Iceland.
      You do not need the animal pack, I have imported my own.

    Hi ... great work!

    I noticed the Loc for ILS 01 at BIAR (Akureyri) Course in the sim is indicated as 008 and locks onto that course (and unable to change since it's automatic) when in published charts it's 011. Are you aware of that?

    Thank you . I just redownloaded and they are there now.

    It is very odd though. The version I downloaded this morning at 11.39 was
    baddweapon-scenery-icelandoverhaul-v1-7-2_t3KRS which is identical to the version I downloaded just now.

    However the earlier download which does not contain the two files had a compressed file size of 226,837 KB. The latest version containing the files is a compressed file size of 245,813 KB

    It now loads correctly in MSFS Addons Linker . Aren't computers just such marvelous things ? 😊

    Thank you for creating such a wonderful addon and for responding so quickly. It is appreciated

      Huh thst is strange since I hadn't updated the file since the update!

      I'm glad it's working now though! Hope you have some good flights around the Country 😊
