Areas populated with osm2city scenery

Note  As of FlightGear 2020.3.7 LTS, OSM2City scenery is automatically downloaded as you fly, with TerraSync enabled - see 1st world-build of OSM2City. TerraSync is the normal way to download OSM2City.
Note  You should remove old custom sceneries containing OSM2City object folders that are obsolete because of OSM2City on TerraSync. If these sceneries contain folders like Terrain that are not obsolete, you can contact the author or delete OSM2City folders. See Troubleshooting the 1st OSM2City worldbuild.

As of FlightGear 2020.3.8 and later, the normal way to get OSM2City is automatic downloads as you fly through TerraSync with the latest version of FlightGear. OSM2City scenery for the whole world has been generated from the objects in the OSM database - see 1st world-build of OSM2City. 2020.3.6 LTS and earlier will not automatically download OSM2City.

This article contains a list of areas having osm2city generated scenery available for manual download. The OSM2City manual describes how to use the sceneries in FlightGear.

Note: You only need to download from this page if: a) your internet connection is limited or, b) you are looking for OSM2City scenery built with different options or a new OSM2City version than the rollout on TerraSync or, c) you are using an old version of FlightGear and can't update to 2020.3.8 LTS or later.

FlightGear Versions

The FlightGear versions mentioned in the tables below indicate compatibility as follows:

Version Compatible FG versions Effects Choose which objects to show Remarks
2020.1 2019.2 x-mas and all newer versions traffic, regionalization yes The big change is the possibility to render the majority of buildings with the FG random buildings shader, which results in faster rendering and depending on the region a factor 4-10 reduction in disk size. Your FG will most probably crash immediately if you use such a scenery with an older FG version.
2017.2 2017.2.2 and all newer versions traffic, regionalization yes

If a table entry specifies both 2017.2 and 2020.1, then it means there is a sub-folder "Buildings_list" within the scenery. By renaming folder "Buildings" to "Buildings_mesh" and then renaming "Buildings_list" to "Buildings" you can transform from 2017.2 to 2020.1 and get the rendering advantages. (There is no requirement for such a folder structure - vanosten might provide some of the sceneries like this for convenience.)

There are older osm2city sceneries around, but there is no reason to use an old FG version: if your computer does not run a newer version, then chances are high that the rendering of osm2city will be poor, too.
