As in many games, scenery is an essential part of YSFlight, and it needs one to provide players with a place to fly over, drive on, targets to attack and runways to land on. There is a wide out-of-the-box selection of maps, 16 in total, ranging from Hawaii, one of the most popular maps in the western YSF community, to more original ones like Slapstick. As with many aspects of YSFlight, maps are highly modificable with a specific program called Scenery Editor. There have been thousands of additional community-made maps released to the public. Some prominent ones are modifications of stock ones, like PMNV's or Griffon's Hawaii, or completely original ones, like York Valley, Saipan, Syria, Canary Islands, just to name a few. The amount of scenery in YSFlight is almost endless, with new maps being created every month. There are ground attack maps, civilian airports, airshow locations, and much more. This page gives a list of available maps that are included by default with YSFlight. For a lot more maps, check out YSUpload's scenery section.
