Aerosoft - Beaver X
Some things age gracefully, some things go beyond that and seem to resist aging altogether. They are truly timeless. In aviation there are few examples, because aircraft are designed for a definite lifespan and to be replaced by something better. Perhaps the Piper Cub is one of the few examples, so long after being build, it's still in serious use and not only for sentimental reasons, they are still very much up to the job. But the DHC-2 beaver certainly is one. In 1955 a new Beaver sold for $30.000 and at this moment a well maintained Beaver with only a few million miles on the clock is worth around $300.000 and there are many operators who will tell you they fly the DHC-2 for the simple reason it is the best aircraft for the job and that they do not care that is older than they are.

Aerosoft - German Landmarks X
German Landmarks is now available for FSX and the new version is extensively enhanced! CR-Software has added a large amount of objects so there are now over 10,000 objects to enhance your VFR flights over Germany.
Also more than 1000 different objects like power stations, industrial plants, high-rise buildings, TV towers, transmitting towers, wind farms, castles, locks, churches, harbor facilities and much more. 260 glider airfields, 80 ultralight fields and 320 heliports are also added as landmarks and are visible on the GPS. As the runways are adapted to the mesh they will follow the terrain so sloped runways are included.
About 2200 objects added precisely according to the official AIPO from DFS.
Using glider databases and satellite images another 8000 objects have been added.
More then 340 glider / ultralight fields and 320 heliports are available.
Around 1000 individual objects were created and other objects taken from the FSX library are used, so a large variety of objects is guaranteed.
The location of the objects are shown on a digitized maps that can be zoomed in and out.
The objects are optimized for FSX mesh, other higher density mesh projects have no yet shown problems.
For slower systems it is possible to reduce the number of objects to ensure a smooth frame rate.
