UK Scenery Wish List

From FlightGear wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This pages is a list of high-impact UK scenery objects that are currently missing from FlightGear. It's subjective, please feel free to add entries, and especially to claim entries if you feel like working on one. The list is particularly biased towards things that are prominent from the air. Some of these things already existing in the 3D Warehouse, so another possibility is to contact authors there for permission to use the model under the GPL (including any textures), but many of the models there are rather too detailed for comfortable use in FG.
