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
  • DT Library by Darrell Thompson

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 4.0.0 Released

We have just released a major new release of OpenSceneryX, version 4.0.0. You will also need the new installer v2.5.0, so please download that from the home page. Here is the list of new stuff:

  • New scenery objects in this version:
    • Incorporated DT Library by Darrell Thompson into OpenSceneryX, which includes a large set of markings suitable for small to medium airports.
    • einstein has contributed seasonal variants (autumn and winter without snow) for the original OpenSceneryX tree forests. This enables autumn and winter (without snow) for any sceneries that use originl OpenSceneryX forests, as well as most of the individual plant and tree objects.
    • madmaxland has contributed a spring seasonal variant for the original OpenSceneryX tree forests. This enables springtime for any sceneries that use original OpenSceneryX forests, as well as most of the individual plant and tree objects.
    • FlyAgi has contributed seasonal variants (autumn, winter mild and winter deep) for all his vegetation forests.
  • Modified scenery objects in this version:
    • The runway closed ‘X’ marking has been replaced by an improved version from DT Library which includes normals.
    • Some aircraft, both jets and props, are now incorporated into the X-Plane® static aircraft system.
    • Fixed missing TEXTURE_NORMAL in oil fired power station.
  • Other changes:
    • Major new feature: Support for seasons. OpenSceneryX now exports seasonal regions compatible with core X-Plane, the Four Seasons plugin, the TerraMaxx plugin and the xAmbience plugin. Seasonal support is optional and can be chosen on install. Note that we only support seasons for library contributions that have seasonal alternatives.
    • Major new feature: Support for injecting OpenSceneryX items into X-Plane® built-in libraries. This can be used to enhance the X-Plane® automatic object placement and autogen. This is optional and can be selected on install. Currently some of the OpenSceneryX aircraft are exported to be used for static aircraft around airports.
    • Updated the Backup Library to v2.2.0
    • The library still includes the Backup Library but it is now separate and the installer gives the choice of using or not using it.
    • The website now provides more information about lines in the library – layer group, layer offset, line width and whether the line is mirrored.
    • The website now provides more information about objects in the library – whether they have multiple LODs, custom lights, named lights, parameterised lights, spill lighting, whether the object tilts on uneven ground and whether it emits black or white smoke. Also, objects are marked as ‘animated’ automatically now, by directly examining the .obj file for animation commands.
    • Markdown is now supported for all descriptions of items. This is automatically converted to HTML for publishing on the website. Many descriptions that were being squashed down to a single paragraph have been rewritten using Markdown and tables, e.g. many of the polygons, making them far more readable.
