about us

In short, we make immersive scenery enhancements for XP11 and XP12, but there's a little more to it then that...

OUR STORY

We are Boundless.
We make airport and scenery enhancements for XP11 and Xp12 to make sure that your simulator experience is as immersive and realistic as possible. 

But there's a bit more to us then that...

 

Since we began in 2020, our main mission has been to bring realistic scenery modifications to flight simulator software. We use a combination of real world site visits, recent photography, excellent ortho imagery and then with our team of skilled developers - we build airports with ultimate realism.

By recreating airports as they are in the real world and adding them to flight simulator programs, we are able to bring about a level of immersion that is just not possible using the default software alone. 

As you can imagine, that keeps our small team pretty busy... but when we're not building airports, we are engaging and supporting the community - from ensuring we offer the best customer support possible, to permanently announcing lower pricing on all products in order to keep our work accessible - we're always thinking of new ways to help.

Currently, we focus on XP12 and XP11 scenery - with addons for new sims expected to launch soon. 

Meet the Team

We are not a faceless business...
We are a small but diverse team who are located around Europe.
From pilots, to engineers to train drivers - the scope of knowledge is pretty big for a little team.

OUR TIMELINE

MARCH 2020

THE START

We launch our first ever project - a recreation of Ronaldsway Isle of Man Airport for XP11. Created with a budget of £5, and definitely a basic scenery by today's standards, the 3D modelling, ortho imagery and PBR textures proved popular, and so began our journey!

* Did you know?
Isle of Man was actually released during the UK lockdown to see if there was a demand for undeveloped, UK airport scenery for X-Plane... turns out... there was!

THEN THERE WERE TWO

In August 2020 - Cian joined the team. He already had a lot of experience developing Irish Airport freeware for XP11. We started working together, releasing Kerry as our first Irish project. Since then, we have covered 5 Irish Airports, and 12 Irish Helipads

By 2022, Lewis and Cian had worked on 12 projects together - and when they are not too busy sharing Simpsons memes, they continue to develop new projects in and around Europe.

* Did you know?
On their joint projects, Cian models the buildings, and Lewis manages the ground works.

NEW PARTNERSHIPS

We began our successful partnership with IniBuilds. We have since retailed exclusively on our own store and on IniManager, as well as working together to bring Alderney to MSFS.

* Did you know?
We were IniBuilds first developer partner. There are now well over 30!

A FRESH LOOK

With big plans for 2021 - we decided to kick off the year with a new look, smartening up our wings logo which has stayed the same since.

FEBRUARY 2021

WE LAUNCH BOUNDLESS DIRECT

To coincide with our new look, as well as further major releases such as Shannon and Stansted, we decided it was time to launch Boundlessdirect.com - our new website. The site has changed and grown a lot since then, but you can still see some similarities!

By reducing the amount of manual site management we needed to undertake, we could increase our time spent on customer support and product development.

growing the team

How did we get so lucky? Two legendary developers, Matt and Ally joined us during spring 2021. Between them, they have taken the lead in over 12 projects. Of course, more are always on the way!


* Did you know?
Our full team consists of:
6 developers
3 dedicated project testers 
1 Discord king (Rik)
BUT - we all share jobs, so everyone is involved in the entire process.

BIGGER AND BETTER

After growing steadily with further UK and Irish sceneries, we decided to announce Stansted Airport for XP11. This was a huge step for us, as it was by far the Largest project we had undertaken, it also marked our first venture into any London airport. 


* Did you know?
Stansted release day was one of our busiest ever! Due to the size of the project, we remained on hand all day to offer immediate help to anyone who needed it.

NOVEMBER 2021

LAUNCH OF BOUNDLESS STORE

By November 2021, we were outgrowing our old website store and realised it was time to focus on this. Therefore, we decided to completely overhaul the system, launching the new Boundless Store on 25th November 2021. We also stopped selling on certain third party sites so that we could keep the customer process as simple as possible. The store now has over 30 products listed, and will continue to grow over the next few years.

* Did you know?

Our store has helped us to actually lower the price of our scenery, by reducing the time we spend on store management!

OUR BIGGEST EVER PROJECT

After 10 months of intense development, we launched Dublin for XP11 (Since updated to XP12). This is still our largest project by far, and all nearby areas were included which made the detail and commitment absolutely huge!

Dublin was a true team effort, with Lewis, Cian, Callum and Ally all being directly involved with the development, whilst the rest of the team worked incredibly hard to test and tweak the scenery.

* Did you know?
We contacted our amazing source of ortho imagery, and acquired the aerial photographs just 2 days after they were taken! Talk about fresh ;)

AUTUMN 2022

HELLO TO XPLANE 12

After the initial release of XP12, we immediately began to update and release products for the new sim. 

There was a lot to learn, and the whole team played a part! As a customer, you can expect to see updates continue to roll out.

 

All projects released after September 2022 run with joint XP12 and XP11 compatibility and as of March 2024, we have 17 airports which are optimised for XP12.

bonjour beauvais!

After over 2 years developing Ireland and the UK, we decided to expand our range of locations.

In December 2022 we announced Paris Beauvais, our first project in France. After this, you can certainly expect to see more global releases!

As of early 2024 we have released 4 international destinations, with many more planned...
