Lyon is the third-largest city and second-largest urban area of France. It is located at the confluence of the rivers Rhône and Saône, about 470 km (292 mi) south-east of Paris, 320 km (199 mi) north of Marseille and 56 km (35 mi) northeast of Saint-Étienne.

The city of Lyon proper had a population of 516,092 in 2017 within its small municipal territory of 48 km2 (19 sq mi), but together with its suburbs and exurbs the Lyon metropolitan area had a population of 2,323,221 that same year, the second-most populated in France. The city of Lyon and 58 suburban municipalities have formed since 2015 the Metropolis of Lyon, a directly elected metropolitan authority now in charge of most urban issues, with a population of 1,385,927 in 2017.

Lyon is the capital of the region of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes as well as the seat of the Rhône departmental council (whose jurisdiction, however, no longer extends over the Metropolis of Lyon since 2015).

Former capital of the Gauls at the time of the Roman Empire, Lyon is the seat of an archbishopric whose holder bears the title of Primate of the Gauls. Lyon became a major economic hub during the Renaissance. The city is recognized for its cuisine and gastronomy, and historical and architectural landmarks; as such, the districts of Old Lyon, the Fourvière hill, the Presqu'île and the slopes of the Croix-Rousse are inscribed on the UNESCO world heritage list. Lyon was historically an important area for the production and weaving of silk. Lyon played a significant role in the history of cinema: it is where Auguste and Louis Lumière invented the cinematograph. It is also known for its light festival, the Fête des Lumières, which begins every 8 December and lasts for four days, earning Lyon the title of Capital of Lights.

Economically, Lyon is a major centre for banking, as well as for the chemical, pharmaceutical, and biotech industries. The city contains a significant software industry with a particular focus on video games, and in recent years has fostered a growing local start-up sector. Lyon hosts the international headquarters of Interpol, the International Agency for Research on Cancer and Euronews. According to the Globalization and World Rankings Research Institute, Lyon is considered a Beta city, as of 2018. It ranked second in France and 40th globally in Mercer's 2019 liveability rankings.

10 month(s) ago / Ringraziato da Thalixte

Amazing mod! I made a video of your mod on RTX3080 Ultrawide 60FPS

It is so beautiful!

Limoges, pleeease, votre travail est incroyable et mon don pour Limoges sera bon!!!

What an impressive beautiful city and awesome addon. Thank you!

Thanks for your work. Scenery detailed and light enough. Have you the project to enlarge a little your work to the north and south of the suburbs of Lyon ? 😊

Super travail mais des soucis important avec les reliefs. Tout est bien installé dans les bon répertoires 😞 =>

Excellent work

Bonjour, Au niveau du Rhone, le terrain s'enfonce. Seule la basilique est sur une colline. J'ai bien téléchargé les deux fichiers HD. une solution ?

I Faithfully Keep on Trying your Sceneries, BUT I Find the HD Versions Much too Difficult to Fly Smoothly !! But Even on Your SD Version its STILL Frame Intensive !!! I Have a "HIGH END" Homemade GAMING Computer,...So Its a Toss up between Using the (Pretty Good)-default Scenery for LYON & Your SD Scenery...BUT I Can Use the "ULTRA" Settings with the DEFAULT Scenery, & "AT BEST", I Can only Use High & Medium Settings for Your SD Version...Any Suggestions for Better Performance ??

Vivement la 1.5 !!! 😂

Merci pour cette superbe scène. Avec le Bell 47 c'est un vrai régal et j'ai une vieille gtx 980 ti en HD. J'ai repéré 2 dalles manquantes chez moi : au sud du parc de la tête d'or et à l'est de Gerland.

Bonjour Thalixte, est-il possible que tu rajoutes qques landmarks comme les radars du Mont-Verdun, la raffinerie de Feyzin, Vénissieux?

Good afternoon from Cape Town

I have the latest version of Lyon but when flying over the city there is a huge 'ditch' next to the river on the city's side and it is as if the city is hovering over it. When at a distance everything looks normal.

After SU5 I'm not sure anymore if it is MSFS, my setup, the government, or an Unicorn's fault when I see an anomaly.

Vivement la 1.4 ! 😂

Super travail Thalixte (comme d'habitude) et gratuit en plus. Qualité au top sans perte de FPS pour moi, même avec ma modeste GTX1060 6GB. Un régal de voler en VR au dessus de Lyon avec la version SD. Je ne vole qu'en VR avec un Quest 2. J'ai juste la Basilic de Fourvière qui n'apparait pas (et la tour métallique quand elle veut bien). Je n'ai pas d'autres mod dans ce coin là et j'ai bien les versions WU à jour. Après avoir effacé le cache en vol (pour tester), j'ai eu l'impression de voir la basilic en 'dessous' de la coline. Ce n'est pas très grave mais au cas ou d'autres aient le même problème, si il y a une solution, je suis preneur (le Parc OL version Asobo est bien présent). Spec : 32GB (2733MHz), GTX1060 6GB, Ryzen 2600, Quest 2 en Link)

Edit : En prenant l'hélicoptère et en se rapprochant lentement, la basilic finit par apparaitre (non VR).

Bizarre, la partie SD (1,31 Go) est plus lourde que la partie HD (1,25 Go) !!! 😏

Vivement la 1.3

Another great one! Honestly love how you make the buildings hard objects that are landable! If anyone's interested in a preview of this mod we made a video on landing on Halle Tony Garnier at the link below:

Thanks Thalixte, another master piece! Thanks for you work, your sceneries are the best.

A true pleasure to fly over my old city 😊

Made another video with timestamps for the occasion

Franchement, c'est juste tellement beau, je tourne a 30 FPS, quel plaisir de voir la ville de Lyon, j'attendrais avec impatience les autres mises a jours, du genre faire toute l'agglomération Lyonnaise ( Mdr )

Excellent ! Je remarque néanmoins qu'une grande partie du 5ème arrondissement n'est pas disponible (au sud de Fourvière)
