Davidson Strip, Alaska - scenery for MSFS

Davidson Strip, Alaska v1.1.2

Developed by Chris Britton for MSFS

Davidson Strip is located on the southernmost end of Amber Lake. The airstrip has been completely rebuilt from the ground up, and starting in v1.1.0, has been integrated with Emerald Object Library, adding custom objects and vegetation to the scenery! A number of the missing lakes and ponds surrounding Amber Lake now have a water surface defined and have been flattened to allow for float plane operations. Several docks have also been placed around Amber and a few other lakes and ponds, as well as some water overlay issues fixed in the vicinity of the airport. Tree placement has also been redone at and around the airstrip for greater accuracy.

Features

  • Rebuilt from the ground-up!

  • 30cm/px, AI-enhanced aerial imagery covering the airstrip & color-matched to the surrounding terrain.

  • Custom objects and vegetation from Emerald Object Library.

  • Custom gravel textures to realistically depict the runway, parking and other areas of detail.

  • Overhauled tree placement in the vicinity of the airstrip.

  • Adds water to and flattens dozens of lakes in the area.
