Kosovo  is a disputed territory and partially recognized state in Southeast Europe that declared independence from Serbia in February 2008 as the Republic of Kosovo. While Serbia recognizes administration of the territory by Kosovo's elected government, it still continues to claim it as its own Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohija.
Kosovo is landlocked in the central Balkan Peninsula. Its capital and largest city is Pristina. It is bordered by the Republic of Macedonia and Albania to the south, Montenegro to the west, and the uncontested territory of Serbia to the north and east.

The population of Kosovo is 1,859,203 and it area is 10,908 km2

The scenery covers all the territory of Kosovo and blending with our scenerys of Serbia, Macedonia, Albania and Montenegro.

Project Open Scenery - Serbia (P3D and FSX)

Well, it done, and we can be proud, it our biggest scenery yet to be published
and it covering all of Serbia

Serbia, officially the Republic of Serbia, is a sovereign state situated at the crossroads between Central and Southeast Europe, covering the southern part of the Pannonian Plain and the central Balkans. Relative to its small territory, it is a diverse country distinguished by a transitional character, situated along cultural, geographic, climatic and other boundaries. Serbia is landlocked and borders Hungary to the north; Romania and Bulgaria to the east; Macedonia to the south; and Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Montenegro to the west; it also claims a border with Albania through the disputed territory of Kosovo. Serbia numbers around 7 million residents, and its capital, Belgrade, ranks among the largest cities in Southeast Europe

the scenery covers a terettory of 88,361 km
most of the photoscenery made with 2m/pix but in more populated areas it covered with 1m/pix and also 0.5m/pix (belgrad and more major cites and airports) 

There is no winter texture and night texture (also there is no watermask, most of the area is land), The scenery blends our other scenerys (Montenegro and also should blend well with the future Macedonia)
We use FreeMesh X Global for the scenery. It been tested under P3D v3 but should also work in FSX.  

also before you download this scenery, there been a problem with aligning the tiles, if you doesn't know what it means, it mean that there is small un-alignment between the tiles, this shouldn't be seen from medium altitude and you won't see it in 1m/pix and 0.5m/pix areas.
We hope to get better source for imagery for this scenery in the future but now this is what we got.

the size of the scenery is 35GB
so we couldn't use cloud or drive download this time, we will give only torrent download this time, so if you download please seed for others.

simply unzip and add the scenery in this order

If you are using SkyHighSim - Belgrade X you will see some color deference between the airport and project open scenery - Serbia
if it really annoying you you can go to Belgrade X scenery folder and move "BGD-FOTO.bgl" to new folder outside the scenery folder (keep it as backup)

Download (torrent)

Update 15.10.16
Now we have AFCADs for Serbia thanks to our Friend Joop Mak

Weekly update (30.09.16)

Hi everybody, Hope you having fun using our scenerys, first of all as you can see above, we add pages for each project, and if you look again you may notice that there is a page for Serbia!!, so this is our great news of this week, we hope to release the scenery in the next week if everything will go according to plan.

and for some more updates:
1) as some of you may know most of the default airports in P3D and in FSX were made in the time of FS98, there wasn't based on GIS data so there some problems with alignment on photoscenerys (sometimes runways can be placed far from there real place), this thing happened in our photoscenery but thanks to Joop Mak now it solve. Joop created an updated afcads for all the airports in Montenegro Albania and Tbilisi.

you can find the links to the afcads in each project page now
have fun

2) now for more good news, we are happy to announce that we are currently start working on Macedonia, the first screenshots will published soon.

3) as you noticed, we also add torrents for our projects, we ask everyone how download our scenerys by torrent to seed, it will help others to download, we currently have low resource and soon we will remove our scenerys from the drive (so the scenerys will be accessible only by torrents), also we have limited connection and we can't seed for 24/7, we hope you can understand and help us.

4) as Project Open Scenery grows we need your help, we have many project to come in the future and this demand more resource to support the project (just to give you information about the size of each project, the work files of Serbia wight 600GB) , we want to make the flight simulator world richer and make it accessible for anybody for free. but to do this we need your help, if you want to support us you can make a donation, if you look on the right side of the page, there is a PayPal donation button, any donation will be accepted and will bring this project one step forward.

thank you very much

Project open scenery Montenegro is in the finale stage
most of the water masks are ready and also they are blending good on the scenery

as for now, we hop to publish the scenery next week
so here is a screenshot of the upcoming scenery

the water mask for the scenery took us most of the time
it was painted by hand in very high resolution for each tile of the water front of Montenegro.
as mentioned before, the use 1pix/m resolution. so it took nearly a month to finish it
just to show you the work done in the scenery here is a water mask of one tile.

(if you ask what is watermask, it a layer that added to the bgl file which tell what is land and what is the water in the scenery) 
 and this is a close up of the water front
as you can see , we tried to preserve as many details as we could

hope you like this progresses
we promise to give you more surprise about this scenery and others soon
