We scan the landscape of flux compactifications for the Calabi-Yau manifold 4[1,1,1,6,9] with two Kahler moduli by varying the value of the flux superpotential W0 over a large range of values. We do not include uplift terms. We find a rich phase structure of AdS and dS vacua. Starting with W0 ~ 1 we reproduce the exponentially large volume scenario, but as W0 is reduced new classes of minima appear. One of them corresponds to the supersymmetric KKLT vacuum while the other is a new, deeper non…
