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 beta version, you get communication, radio, and tv antennas, chimneys, radar domes, construction cranes, and satellite/radio telescope dishes. I have plans for many, many more.


  • Over 130 000 objects placed in region 1.
  • Coverage of all Europe and part of Africa.
  • In this version mobile communication, tv and radio antennas, chimneys, radar domes, construction cranes, and satellite/radio telescope dishes.
  • Puffin AI* - correct placement and appearance of objects**
  • Over 100 custom models
  • Lower spec PC friendly
  • Much more planned
  • Yes, I know there are no cooling towers. Next update hopefully.
How to install?

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

Warning: To get satellite dishes/radio telescopes you need "USA Points of Interest" installed. It's available in the marketplace for free.

It's not really 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.

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). This is a case of mismatch data between Asobo and OSM and has to be fixed manually. Report it in comments or in discord.

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

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).

Where America?

Soon. Most likely with the release of v.0.5 for Europe.

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.

Thanks a lot for your great work!

Unfortunately, in Russia, in Voronezh (1 million city) and Murmansk, both TV towers are too small (I have not tested it in other places), it looks no more than 40 meters in height in the sim, but in reality - about 180-220 meters. Please replace them with the one you posted in Belgorod in future updates, if possible.

Amazing! 👍

Very much appreciated! Your work generally made VFR flying a LOT more alive - and realistic. Eyecandy is one thing but using these as pilotage references makes navigation a lot more easier, close to RL experience. Especially for me, around my base AD there are some significant chimneys which are now visible - just like IRL - from 20nm away and help to get back. 😊

Love your work, makes the Sim so crowded!

Hope to see some Smokey chimneys in the future! 🥰

Your mod doesn't appear to be compatible with the latest sim update? Hope it's an easy fix.

Thank you very much, this adds a lot to flying in VR (and VFR). Especially in combination with the german TV towers pack.

Could you add wind turbines? They are pretty defining pieces of landscape and often very visible on hill crests. I saw there are already some turbine packs out there, so the models might be easy to get.

Churches is also something that is hit or miss with asobo, but I guess these are very regionally dependent. For Germany alone, I can think of three models of churches, depending on lattitude. Brick churches for North Germany, Netherlands and Flanders, white plastered churches for middle Germany, Wallonie and Luxemburg, and then union shaped bell towers for the alpine region.

There are cranes on the runway of the Sheremetyevo airport in Moscow. Could you delete them?

Are you considering adding power plants to a possible update. I use those quite often as landmarks during VFR

Great work
Great add-on, really appreciate your effort!

I found a couple of wind turbines near EHAM that could randomly float in the air when you're away from them, but they teleport back on the ground when you fly very close to them. Not sure if it's an issue of your mod or if that's Asobo's default scenery, but could you help to verify? Thanks!

Great work,
thank for sharing with us.
Greetings from Germany😊
Great project! Are you working on this for North America or the US?
Instead of reding me, donwload, install, fly !!! This simply put is the most important mod for any serious VFR... Should be in base MSFS !
Installed your Mod after you suggested it on stream my friend! It will now permanently feature for the coming flights. Thank you very much for the suggestion!
Just thought I'd post again my appreciation for this incredible add-on. I was flying over Cornwall this week and came across a gigantic mast on a hill that I thought was too tall to be accurate, but it turns out it's Caradon Hill mast and its the tallest mast in Devon and Cornwall at over 700 feet. I then googled the highest mast in England and turns out there are several over 1000 feet. I'm going to have to fly to Skelton to see the daddy of English masts and then go and find Europe's highest.

Never knew masts could be so fun. Will go hunting big chimneys next!
I made some changes in OpenStreetMap. When can I see these changes in the mod? 😊
Construction cranes are a bit too much, lots of them got added to The Netherlands where there shouldnt be any, In places like Rotterdam they are inside buildings, around Lelystad tthere are like 4 in a row at places there shouldnt be any. Hope this gets toned down a bit. Love the rest of the pack though
Thanks a lot for your support, to get our work aligned.
Was a pleasure.
i just want to say what a great job you have done. i would recommend this to anyone who flies regularly in europe and especially in low flying
Can't install. I place the extracted folder in the Community folder and it comes up as Not Installed in the content manager. I tried re downloading and tried the older v0.3 version but no luck.
