The library contains many pre-built 3d models including buildings, aircraft and vehicles as well as a large collection of ground markings, ground furniture, trees and plants.

An index of all the objects in the current version is available here. Note that you cannot download single objects, you must download the library as a whole.

1Download

Click one of the following links to download the OpenSceneryX installer:


If you like the library,
please consider supporting it

For system requirements for all versions, please see the support page here. If you have problems installing, check the support page or our YouTube channel: OpenSceneryX on YouTube

2Install

On macOS – double click the disk image, then when the window appears drag the installer onto the Applications folder. Run it from there. On Windows or Linux – just unzip it, put it where you want it and run it. On all versions, you will be asked to locate your X-Plane® folder and then the installer will automatically download the latest version of OpenSceneryX.

You don’t need to download a new installer every time you want to update OpenSceneryX – just re-run it whenever you like and it will only download files that have changed.

Dependencies: Although OpenSceneryX will work without needing to install anything else (except a scenery package that uses it!), some objects such as this one contain advanced animation that needs Sandy Barbour’s CustomSBDatarefs004 plugin to work, which you can download from here.  This is optional but recommended.

3Use

Normal X-Plane® Users

If you are a standard user of X-Plane®, then you don’t do anything else. Installing this library does nothing on its own to the simulator – you won’t see any changes to your default scenery and you won’t see any new options in X-Plane®. However, scenery packages developed by other people can now use the objects in this library, so if you have installed any scenery package that uses OpenSceneryX then that package will come alive with objects.

X-Plane® Scenery Developers

If you are a scenery developer, click the following link to download the OpenSceneryX Developer Pack: . Instructions for use are enclosed, and the developer pack contains a full PDF reference manual containing everything in the library including screenshots. We also have help for scenery developers on our YouTube channel: OpenSceneryX on YouTube

If you have used OpenSceneryX in your scenery package, please let us know by leaving a message on this page.

Donations

Although the library is and always will be free to use, it still costs money to host this website and provide the downloads for the library. If you feel the library is a valuable resource, we would be very grateful if you would consider donating a little to keep it running.


Scenery Packages that use OpenSceneryX

So if you’ve downloaded the library and would like to see it in use, you’ll need to find a scenery package that uses it! Take a look at the list of packages that are enhanced by OpenSceneryX.


Libraries Included with OpenSceneryX

We are now starting to include third party libraries, where the author has generously contributed their entire library to OpenSceneryX. The following libraries are incorporated, so you no longer need to install them separately:

  • RE Library by Richard C Elliott (einstein)
  • FlyAgi Vegetation Library by FlyAgi
  • FlyAgi Wind Turbine Library by FlyAgi

If you are an author of a library and would like to contribute it to OpenSceneryX, we would be happy to discuss, so please get in touch.


Contributions

We now have an extraordinary contributions in the library and still rising.

Contributors

A big thank you to the following people who have contributed: .

Additional thanks also goes to Tom Kyler for testing the Linux version of the installer, to Sergio Santagada for allowing the OpenSceneryX installer icon to be based on his original icon artwork and to the following people for localising the installer: Jordi Sayol, Gerrit-Jan Rebel, Olivier Faivre, Valentin Kaufmann and Jon Hyams.

Would you like to contribute?

We are always looking to expand the library, so if you would like to contribute your work we would love to include it. To find out how, there are some instructions for contributors here.

OpenSceneryX v4 Beta Testing

Because it’s so big and contains significant new features, we have taken the unusual step of running an open beta test of the next release of OpenSceneryX (v4.0.0).

The beta test is being run over on the thresholdx.net forums so if you want to take part and get early access to the next release, head over there now – all the details are in the README post.

Note: If you want to take part in the beta, please be aware there may be bugs and issues that cause problems with your X-Plane® simulator, so if you don’t feel comfortable with this please wait for the full release.
