Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Scenery, a world class on its own

Scenery is the landscape in FlightGear (or any other simulator) and is therefore an essential part of the simulator. Contributing something back to the FlightGear world (literally) is both fun and rewarding.

One of the best aspects of FlightGear's open source character is the global scenery database.
