Do you like flying VFR and watching the World below you? Do you sometimes feel that something is missing? We Love VFR is here to help you. We Love VFR is a free add-on for Microsoft Flight Simulator that adds thousands of new VFR-friendly objects. In this version, you get communication, radio, and tv antennas, chimneys, cooling towers, radar domes, construction cranes, and satellite/radio telescope dishes. I have plans for many more.

What's new in this update?
  • Reworked handling of construction cranes. Now we include only sites older than one year, but not older than 4. Also, verified all cranes near runways.
  • Added more accurate data for Austria with verified all smokestacks and all other objects over 100 m.
  • Added some more crosses in the Alps.
  • Fixed one of the smaller chimneys' LOD issue.
  • Incorporated data correction requests made by users.

What does We Love VFR include?
  • Over 150 000 objects were placed in region 1.
  • Coverage of all Europe, Africa, and part of the Middle East.
  • In this version mobile communication, tv, and radio antennas, chimneys, cooling towers, flare stacks, large and mountain top crosses, radar domes, construction cranes, and satellite/radio telescope dishes.
  • Smoke and steam effects for chimneys and cooling towers - wide and temperature dependant
  • Puffin AI* - correct placement and appearance of objects**
  • Included detailed obstacle data from 30 countries (list below)
  • Over 100 custom models
  • Lower spec PC friendly
  • Much more planned
Need power lines and ski lifts?

How to install it?

Find your „Community” directory and just copy "a-puf-we-love-vfr-region1" there. That’s it. That’s it. If you’re updating my addon, remove the old version before installing the new one.
If you have a conflicting addon refer to the included ReadMe file.

If you don't like smoke effects, or they somehow kill your fps, first of all, report it here or on discord, but then you can download the "no effects" version of this add-on.

Warning: To get satellite dishes/radio telescopes you need to have installed "USA Points of Interest" by Asobo, from the official World Update USA. It's available in the marketplace for free.

It's not a beta anymore but I don't have much time for testing so...

...don't be mad if you see any errors, just report them to me so I can fix them ;) If you see an object that you know but its appearance, join our discord and report it there. I'll try to add/fix it for the next version. You can also join our beta testers team.

Countries with upgraded data (other countries use OSM data and manually added data from wiki or users):

Albania, Armenia, Bahrain, Belgium, Benin, Burkina Faso, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo, Croatia, Equatorial Guinea, Estonia, Gabon, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Luxembourg, Madagascar, Mali, Mauretania, Montenegro, Niger, Poland, Portugal, Rwanda, Serbia, Spain, Slovenia, Togo

 

Known Issues:

  • in very rare cases there might be an office building instead of a chimney (I don't mean cooling towers, these are not implemented in the mod at all... yet). Same with office building in place of the demolished cooling tower. This is a case of mismatched data between Asobo and OSM and has to be fixed manually. Report it in comments or in discord.
  • most of my objects are switched off on photogrammetry to avoid conflicts. Unfortunately, photogrammetry boundaries are sometimes different than real photogrammetry coverage. Because of that objects that are close to photogrammetry areas might not appear at all. If you find an object like this, just report it to me so I can switch it on.


*Not really AI. Just quite complex conditions, but AI sounds a lot better.
**Depends on data availability.

Love this addon, but have noticed more stuttering, esp in SU10 when panning. Hoping a SU10 compatible update comes out.

Seeing a lot of errors in developer mode when you have VFR1 and VFR2 with duplicated GUIDS. For example: Duplicated model data guid {6B49068C-B4BA-4C4E-7B70-ED5534DB9A02} found in BGL! package "a-puf-we-love-vfr-region2" and "a-puf-we-love-vfr-region1". There are a lot of these.

Although I fly only airliners, can't tell you how big is the gap you did fill. Really missed the cooling towers and chimneys, etc. Thanks for this amazing work, much love

Great mods. Would it be possible in the future to add flashing lights to TV/Radio towers?

Hello I got a question,

is it possible to have only models installed but not them placed in the Sim?

Some addon developers require this mod installed to have some elements of they scenery appear. It is actually a great mod. But the reason however why I don't want this mod to be installed is that it's places too much random antennas and chimneys in non existent places but also conflicts with other addons including ones from ORBX, Drzewiecki Design, some other custom modelled power plants and so on. I of course fully understand that you can't simply make it compatible with every single mod that is made and will be made for the Sim.

Love your addons, any chance of doing "we love vfr" including smoking stacks and powerlines for Australia/New Zealand?

Man this brings so much realism to the game. Its so cool now to be on approach and see a tower where it would be in real life etc.

Just reporting that there's two towercranes blocking the approach to Bremerhaven (EDWB) Runway 34 .. love the mod, first time i come across an incident like this.

Keep the love flowing!

Hey!

I love this mod, it adds a lot of plus to the sim world. However I use a mod from HungaryVFR and they are duplicated. May I ask how can I delete the Deutsche Telekom tower in Szeged (46.270973, 20.145219)?

The other objects are well placed, but this one is modeled within the city scenery already so it appears duplicated and that's ugly.

Thanks!

Love your work. Just donated $20.00

Little bug when using Payware GAYA Vienna (LOWW), where you can see 3 random fires on the top of nothing around the northwest Industrial area. Also one of the Chimneys in the same area has a misligned smoke.

The german Power Plant is called "Frimmersdorf", not "Fimmersdorf"...

I was taking off out of an Austrian airport today, setting my AP looked up and flow right between 2 towers burning of gas at a industrial area. It was such a exciting experence. I cant imagine this sim with out your hours of work, you bring it to life. Thank you for all of it! Best, Toby

Best add on! Makes flying so much better with all these things you add to the sim!

Thank you very much!

Hey, don't know if it's possible to remove default (AI placed) windmills, but there is one next to Budapest which does not exist IRL: 47.519185, 18.926891

Can you look at it?

User Request! Please make the Chimney on Heligoland/Helgoland Island appear thinner in your next update. The way it is now, it dominates the island too much.

this is how it looks in real: https://www.vbhelgoland.de/data/uploads/kraftwerksbilder/Abgasturm.jpg

height is 85m still.

Thanks in advance!

great add-on, really making a difference ! a big thank you ! any plans to add the lighthouses one day ? even if only a generic model would add a lot to the coast line vfr experience !

EDIT 06.03.2022

I found out what my stuttering problem was. The aerosoft tool simple traffic together with this mod caused my problems. I got the rid of it and everything turned into a smooth experience again. Sorry for bothering bro, and thanks again for your work!

Heey Puffin. I know you probably get asked this a lot, but is there anything I can do to stop duplicates appearing with other sceneries? Specifically I use Orbx Great Britain Central and Great Britain North and I wish Orbx would F off with their masts and radomes. Do you know how I can edit them so I just have yours?

Masz pytania? Tutaj znajdziesz rozwiązanie.

Will this be compatible with xyz scenery?

Hard to tell. But it can be. My mod is more like autogen expansion, so authors of more local sceneries have to make their mods compatible. Unfortunately, I can't do that. But it's really easy.
The author just needs to add exclusion under his custom object and then you, as a user, need to make sure We Love VFR is higher on the list in the 'Content.xml' file. You'll find that file 2 directories above your community folder. This file tells the sim in which order it should load addons.

Mast/radome/chimney in xyz is not in your mod. Can you add it?

Most likely - yes. You can add it by yourself by editing OpenStrretMaps. More detailed instructions are available at www.puffinflight.com, or report in on our discord
You can also leave me a comment with coordinates and some more details (if it's a mast or chimney try to find out how tall is it).

Why can’t I see obstacle lights from the distance? / Why there is a visible light but not on top of the antenna?

For now, MSFS SDK for lights is very limited. I can’t create a light that will have a source visible from a distance. On the other hand, I can’t remove those red, clearly visible lights that Asobo has put in place of antennas. As soon as they expand SDK, I’ll fix that.

Why do antennas look fuzzy from the distance?

That’s something in the sim graphics engine, that for now can’t be bypassed. Original sim objects act exactly the same. I try to prevent it a bit with LODs, but it won’t be perfect. Maybe the DX12 will fix it someday.

I don't like smoke effects. Can I remove them?

Sure you can. Just download the "no effects" version of this add-on,
