Instant Scenery is a tool for adding 3D objects to Flight Simulator scenery in a very easy way. It allows you to enhance scenery without leaving Flight Simulator. Easily add, move and delete objects and see the results of your actions directly in the Flight Simulator view without having to reload scenery every time. This allows you to place every object correctly on the very first attempt. And if you still don't like the result of an editing action, there is an unlimited undo/redo.
Flight Simulator comes with 1000's of models that can be used for scenery objects. These include buildings, vehicles, landmarks, obstacles etc. They are organized into several "libraries". Instant Scenery allows you to use all these models in your scenery. In addition, you can download many add-on libraries made by other Flight Simulator users and use them too.
You can choose models by name, or browse through thumbnails images of all models in a specific library. Instant Scenery comes with thumbnail images for models included in global libraries that came with Flight Simulator. If add-on libraries include thumbnails, Instant Scenery can use them too.
The user interface, while being simple and occupying little screen space, allows you to set many parameters for every object, including heading, scale, elevation and the scenery complexity level.
The scenery you create with Instant Scenery can be easily shared with other Flight Simulator users. They do not have to own Instant Scenery in order to enjoy it.
Seamless integration into Flight Simulator: Instant Scenery runs as a module directly in Flight Simulator and can be started from it's menu. You add and move objects directly in Flight Simulator and see them exactly like they will appear in the scenery, without having to restart FS. You don't have to compile scenery, or tell FS to reload it - when needed, Instant Scenery automatically takes care of these tasks.
Easy and intuitive user interface: All Instant Scenery controls are located in a small window that does not obscure your view. Easily select models by browsing through thumbnails or by name. Use the slew mode to move objects around and use sliders to adjust their parameters. You will immediately see the effect of your changes directly in the Flight Simulator view, which allows you to place every object correctly on the very first attempt.
Works with FSX and FS2004: Instant Scenery works with both FSX and FS2004. If you have FSX already, explore 1000's of new models FSX offers. If not, enjoy all Instant Scenery features in FS2004 without worrying whether it will later work in FSX - it will. A special compatibility mode allows you to make scenery that works in both flight simulators.
Uses all libraries: Both FSX and FS2004 come with extensive libraries containing 1000's of models. In addition to these, Instant Scenery is compatible with all add-on libraries made by Flight Simulator users for FS2004 and FSX (FSX libraries are only usable by the FSX version). This allows you a vast choice of objects to use in sceneries you create.
Advanced settings: For every object, Instant Scenery allows you to set it's location, heading, elevation, scale, pitch/bank and the scenery complexity setting at which it appears.
Full Undo/Redo: In case you make a mistake, Instant Scenery offers an unlimited Undo/Redo functionality. Simply click on the Undo button to reverse the effect of your previous editing actions.
FSDiscover! points of interest: You created some interesting locations in your scenery, but will users ever notice them? Instant Scenery allows you to add FSDiscover! POIs to your scenery. This allows FSDiscover! users to easily find all highlights of your scenery and to plan sightseeing flights over it.
Creates scenery that works for everyone: Instant Scenery creates standard BGL files that can be used by every Flight Simulator user. The users of your scenery don't need to own Instant Scenery. To share your scenery with others, simply share the BGL file you created.
Windows XP Required - Although Instant Scenery may operate under Windows 98 or Me, Flight One can't make any guarantees that you will not encounter problems when using the software with Windows 98 or Me. Flight1 highly recommends Windows XP as it is a true 32-bit operating system, and does not suffer from certain memory limitations of Windows 98 or Me.
