For the first time, the natural beauty of the Brazilian and
Bolivian Pantanal, which is the world's largest wetland is portrayed in a
scenery for Flight Simulator (FSX and FS9). All of the realistic details and
primary cities such as Corumb, Brazil and Puerto Suarez Bolivia as well as
the plains, rivers, lakes and mountains of the region are being brought to the
simulator by the author which lives and travels everyday within the region.
The main characteristics the two versions have in common
Coverage of an area of 5.400 Km2 (2085 Sq. Mi), which
translates to a rectangle of 90 by 60 Km (approx. 56x37 Mi) in the border
region of Brazil and Bolivia which is the heart of the pantanal.
Programmers used high resolution satellite images in
the areas of the cities of Corumb and Puerto Suarez and surrounding the
airports of Visa Estncia and Ocorema, yielding high realism within the
Use of landclass textures in the remaining area,
correction of rivers, lakes and mountains based on images from Google
Earth. These textures were selected from the simulator library with the
objective of the best display of ground and vegetation as well as
minimizing the loss of frame rates.
Mesh relief of 38m (FSX) with
corrections for errors and lack of coverage within DEM.
Inclusion of the
International Airport of Corumb(SBCR) Brazil and Puerto Suarez (SLPS)
Bolivia, with localized AI traffic. AFCAD included.
Construction of 65 3D macros representing houses,
buildings, monuments and the more important civil constructions in the
region. Some of which include, the old river porto of Corumb, water
capture (Captao de gua), Christ, Portal of Corumb, along with the
passenger terminals and primary buildings of both airports.
The old casarios houses of the Porto of Corumb
dating between the IX and X century were all photographed and the textures
were converted to dxtl, which then where applied to the houses and displayed
within FS. With one entire street comprised of realistic personalized
Along with the two international airports and two
regional airports, there are twelve runways used by farms that are
represented within the scenery. All of which are correctly placed
geographically based on Rotaero, an official Brazilian aeronautical
publication. These runways appear within the GPS displays.
Also represented are the roadways of the region as well
as the Iron and Manganese mines of Urucum and Santa Cruz with their many
access and secondary roads. These are both situated in the mountains at an
altitude of more than 1000m (3280ft).
For FSX, vehicular traffic was added on the streets and
roads that access Corumb. River traffic was also added to the river
Paraguay which is the primary body of water in the region.
In addition the user will be able to benefit from the
incredible water effects included in FSX. With textures and shimmering
never before seen within the simulator!
