Powerlines and Solar Farm

By Mamudesign



When you fly VFR, in real life, being near the ground leads to lot of dangers.

One of the most common one is the possibility you get caught in a power line (electricity transmission line)

MSFS has powerlines pylons, but no wire between them


With my addon I added the wires between each pylon for high voltage power lines (more than 60k volts).

Actual POWERLINES coverage includes: 

Germany,  United Kingdom, France, Italy, Spain, Ukraine, Poland, Romania, Netherlands, Belgium, Czech Republic (Czechia), Greece, Portugal, Sweden, Hungary, Belarus, Austria, Serbia, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Denmark, Finland, Slovakia, Norway, Ireland, Croatia, Moldova, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, Lithuania, North Macedonia, Slovenia, Latvia, Estonia, Montenegro



versione 0.9.5 contains also 

USA, Canada, South Africa, Brazil, Japan



Italy, Germany, Spain, France, Great Britain, Benelux, Danmark and Canada


The project coverage is gonna increse overtime

With this addon, along with my other add-on Project Lifts and the spectacular We love VFR by Puffinflight, the long time ago request:“Please add powerlines, gondalas, mast” from the MSFS Wishlist has been fulfilled, for free, by independent developers. Hey Asobo, that is 2 person work :D



The project use Open Street Map data (the same source of Microsoft) for pylon placing

Each “line” (way) of the trasmission grid has a specific “voltage” and "number on cables" in the OSM data, i have assigned specific pylon and number of cables by using those value

if nr. of cables is not indicated,  lines up to 140k volts get 3-wire, line between 140k and 280k get 4-wires and lines above 280k volts will get a 6-wire setup (OSM data also has nr. of wires data, but is quiete unconsistent, so this is the deal)


To spice things up, and provide additional realism, I have crossed Powerlines data with Airports, major roads, rivers, and digital elevation model (SRTM1).

In this way i can detect where to place white and red marker balls for the cables and red/white painted pylons

Rules as folow:

  • Within Airport boundaries no pylons or wires are allowed
  • From each runways threshold, in an area 1500 meters long and 300 meters wide, powerline will have marker balls and red white pylons
  • When a wire cross a major river or major road marker balls are placed
  • Also, when a wire crosses a a major valley marker balls are placed  (more that 50 meters from the bottom of the valley to the base of the pylon, this make the ground-wire clearence to about 70/90 meters)

All the above rules may not follow individual countries regulations, but you know, is not a “Cable simulator”!

I did not notice any major FPS impact


Another thing that the sim was missing was Solar Panels / Solar Farms

So i did them! Basic implementation, but no more empy black-bluish fields

The data source is of course the Open Street Map database. When a single panel is mapped i’m placing it accordingly, while if an entire solar farm is mapped as an entire “area”, i’m filling it with regular patterns

I’m still working on the placing routines / solar panels aspect, so a limited number of countries is provided

Over extremely large solar farms, if too close, fps is gonna lower a bit


NEW: most of you wanted collision handling, so I have added it! It won't affect FPS, but there is a big known issue:

when a cable cross a road, there is some possibility that autogenerated road traffic cars will drive over the cables, the issue has been aknowledge by Asobo's Devs and hopefully will get fixed , more info on this 3d



If you already know my Project Lifts scenery, the issues are the same:

To be able to place wires between pylons I NEED to know the exact altitude above sea level of each pylon at design time. Since there is no way to obtain the data from the sim itself i’m gathering them from free sources like SRTM1 (30 meters Digital Elevation Model). Those not alway match internal MSFS DEM

Therefore, sunken or overflying pylons are fairly common



The downloaded zip contain to main folders:

  • a-mamudesign-powerlines
  • a-mamudesign-solarFarms

In Each main folder there is folder called scenery/a-mamudesign-powerlines/scenery

Or scenery/a-mamudesign-solarFarms/scenery/

Those last foldes contain the actual compiled sceneries, in format contryName-placement.bgl and contryName-exclude.bgl

Since the sceneries contains MILIONS of objects placed, if you suffer for slow loading times you can simply delete or rename unwanted countries



If you want to disable collision handling, because you just wanna have fun or don't like cars riding the cables (see known issues)

inside the a-mamudesign-powerline folder you will find two layout files

simply rename the layout.json as layout.collision

and layout.noCollion as layout.json

this mod plus we love vfr plus the marinas mod makes vfr flying in MSFS unmatched by any sim.

Also need to know...I use the "We love VFR" addon. It also puts up power pylons. Any way I can disable them or does your scenery already do this? And how would it be prioritized?

I dunno but those power thingyies look awfully high to me. Are you sure you measured them? Flying into KSAN cannot easily clear them. They look 2 times too high.

this is without a doubt one of the best mods one can get for this game. It adds SO much. Really changes how you approach some runways. This mod is special in that it offers great visuals AND gameplay. Get it.

also I'm curious; how was this mod made? Surely you didn't manually place all of these lines!

Love this mod and your others Mamu. I did smash into a power line on the RNAV(GNSS) RWY 24 at CCN2 Grand Manan which was a big surprise! I see you'll be addressing the tower heights soon so that's ok!

Is there an update on when the USA powerlines will be fixed(making them smaller for the proper electric pole etc.)?



1 month(s) ago / Благодарности от mamu82

Great work!

Thanks a lot!

So do some wires running around make a difference? YES they really do! I pretty much just fly VFR in the sim. Tried it in some Australia scenery in a place I am familiar with in real world (with a nice Tallawarra Power Station add-on by PAW_BROON nearby) figuring that would have some power transmission lines nearby. Sure enough, I only missed crashing into these wires by mere meters! Can't wait to try a helo and do a line inspection flight! This is a fab addition that just further adds to the immersion.

How do I install this? Where do I install this? Do I need to copy the folders somewhere? Is there an installation file? I cannot review this if I cannot install this and experience it for myself. If my rating was dependent on the installation instructions I would have given it two stars.

Thank you for the outstanding work! I just have a little request. With the mod on there still is the issue of the pylons at LSGG (runway 22), is it possible to fix it? By removing the pylons (or whatever doesn't cause the aircraft to crash on the landing path). Thank you!

This must have taken months and months of hard work. I am in constant amazement at the skills of people like you. Thanks for sharing your work with us.

Trouble to land at RWY 1 in KFRG: the power line is very hight!!!

Great addon



2 month(s) ago / Благодарности от mamu82

great Addon 😊

but there are much too tall powerlines in front of KSAN (I thik there are no Powerlines at all in reality), the same in KLAX, parallel to the Rwy (sounth side) there are no (tall) visible powerlines, could you correct it please? 😊



3 month(s) ago / Благодарности от mamu82

Fantastic Mod. Thank you sir.



3 month(s) ago / Благодарности от mamu82

Great mod! Seems to be powerlines a little too tall and close to the approach path at KSAN.

Excellent! Thanks for covering canada as well!

The lines on the supporting masts of Elbe crossing 1 and 2 near Wedel in Schleswigholstein/Germany are not at the appropriate height, but are in the water. I would appreciate if you could correct that. other than that I'm very happy with your work, keep it up!

Awsome addon, one of my favorite.

But since SU9 it hangs the sim. Either the sim freezes while loading the flight, or the game has huge stutters and freezes while flying (caused by CPU).

When I deactivate the addon, everything runs fine. I uses We Love VFR but the same issue appears when I deactivate it.

Other plugins I use that could potentially conflict with this one: Bijan seasons, gutzy enhanced airport scenery, orbx iceland mesh, neofly, jd's checklists ingame toolbar, and some payware planes (bn2 islander, emb110 bandeirante, kodiak 100, twin otter)

The previous addon version causes the same issue with SU9.

I tested it with two different PC (one with AMD TR CPU, the other with intel 12700K)

Any idea?

First of all, great add-on! But there are still "some" powerlines with invisible walls under them. Like in the Alps, you should be able to easily fly below these powerlines, but once in a while, you crash! ... Quite frustrating.

Previously you delivered a ".noCol" layout.conf for people who are not airliners pilots, but last time you forgot. You wrote a message about the fact you were going to put this collection back in, but I don't think you did it.

I'll redownload the previous version in the meantime. But still, thanks for this great add-on 😊
