Price drop: from 15th August 2018, the price of Real NZ Dunedin is reduced by $10, to NZ$25. As the NZ dollar is low at the moment, this brings the US and Euro price down to US$16.50/EUR14.50 (approx.)
Welcome to the Real New Zealand Dunedin, scenery for FSX, FSX Steam Edition, Prepar3d v3 and v4. This is the first 'Real New Zealand' scenery for some time, so here's a quick intro to what 'Real New Zealand' represents.
'Real New Zealand' means photographically accurate airports and points of interest, on the highest quality aerial imagery available for the area. I always visit and photograph Real NZ airports myself, as real photo textures are what defines a Real New Zealand scenery, along with some serious thought about what makes the airport special.
There is now a small patch available for Real NZ Dunedin, and everyone who has already purchased and downloaded the scenery prior to 15 November 2016 should download and run the patch. Any new orders (from 15 November 2016) already include the patch. Full details are here.

Click on a thumbnail for a full-sized image, then you can navigate through the galleries using the arrow keys or mouse -- note that viewing the galleries this way will move from gallery to gallery as well, for example you would move from the Dunedin Airport gallery to Taieri, so refer to the thumbnails if you are not sure which area is shown.
Why Dunedin? From a flightsim scenery point of view, NZDN is just a terminal in the middle of a paddock. Luckily there's also Taieri Airport, the home of the Otago Aero Club, From the Aeroclub website: "The Otago Aero Club is the oldest aero club in New Zealand dating back to 1927. Taieri airfield has a rich history and was once an active RNZAF base." It has a southern charm which represents a part of New Zealand which is being lost in more northern parts.
The old NAC hangar is still in regular use, and beautifully maintained. Here's a photo from my visit this year.
