Happy landings in the year 2013.

EBOS_v.3 scenery... ready for download

Working actually on the next version of EBOS for FSX.

Downloads are closed for a while.

Hope to release very soon the new adapted airport scenery.


The new version of the airport scenery: EBOS_v.3 (Ostend, Belgium, EU) will be available for download very soon. (Freeware scenery dd. 22.11.2008)

The main issue is the use of selfinstallers (Clickteam Install Creator): one for the basic files and a second installer for the specific files for the FS version you are running (FS2002, FS2004 or FSX).

All the updates and patches are encluded in these two .exe files and installing the EBOS scenery is now very easy and quick. If you like to install the moving ground vehicles or the KHBO aircraft choose the needed files from te list and install them the common way.

The major enhancement concerns the grass poly, especially a problem in FSX SP2, has been solved and there will be now a more realistic looking fresh green grass during the whole year. I can recommend the install of the so called "European_ground_textures_part_1" only for FSX made by Adam Mills at to see seasonal textures).

Two Installers...


1. EBOS_v.3 Basic

2. EBOS: FS2002, FS2004 or FSX (*)

(* for installing scenery in FSX under Windows 7: see explanation !)

How to activate scenery in FSX under Windows 7...

Click on following link and see how this can be done.


How to add scenery to FSX under Windows 7 ?

Here is how to add scenery in FSX under windows7:

  1. open FSX
  2. open Settings
  3. click Scenery Library...
  4. click Add Area
  5. mark scenery you want to add and
  6. click OK ( it will open selected Addon scenery so you can now see it's subfolders, scenery & texture)
  7. now (LEFT) CLICK anywhere on the white area in that open folder
  8. Dialog will now close and selected scenery will be added in the list
  9. click OK in the lower right and FSX will build new scenery database with your scenery added to it



1. Download EBOS_v.3 Basic and install it. The path to FS2004 is already set as an example (if you want to install it in FSX or FS2002, then you have to fill in the path yourself)
2. Download EBOS_v.3 for FS2002, FS2004 or FSX and install it without changing anything because the path is already set .
3. Activate EBOS_v.3 + Library Static Objects

Important: There is a fault found in the map Static Objects Library. You have to change the name of the submap "textures" into "texture" (without s). That's all. Sorry for this inconvienience.



Updates (read carefully this announcement)

At regular time updates will be added to the EBOS-scenery. They will be listed here with the date of release. Then you can choose to make a fresh download and install.

Remove always the former EBOS install.

1. Update animated windsock. Thanks to the designer Jörg Dannenberg who gave permission to freeware designers to use his work: fully animated windsock responding to the wind direction and strength. Visit his website: .

Update available for FS2002, FS2004 and FSX. (07.12.2008) ... for FS2004: remove also the Static Objects Library.


Tip: You can increase framerates FS by setting priority via Task Manager (Taakbeheer) from Normal to Above Normal.
