Trees everywhere in New York DLC away from primary airports

  • This is a feature that distracts me a bit, it's like this all over the coverage areas. I'm assuming the PNW area will be like this too.

    For low flying and sightseeing purposes it cab be a visual eye sore. Yet an appreciated attempt to provide mass tree coverage, which is thoughtful.


    This is why I appreciate ORBX scenery products. It really makes me wonder what tech they use for the TrueEarth regions?

    I use detect trees through photo method but even that requires touch ups and editing.


    To remove these you need to locate the \Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator\scenery\vegetation folder and determine what grids you desire to be removed. I believe they are in level 10 grid sizes.

  • Thanks Jake. I will try a few blind guesses and see if I can find a pattern to the location.


    Well Pooie. There are 3,307 ttc files in the Veggie folder and no clue as to what area they affect.


    I have it narrowed down to about a thousand files. I now need someone at IPACS to help me narrow it down to the New York DLC area.

    Out now: Hawaiian Islands 8) Part 1: Kauai + Niihau v2

    Work in Progress: Part 2: Molokai, Maui, Lanai, Kohoolawe + Molokini Crater



  • There are a few ways to find grids. A quick easy way.


    Use AeroScenery to find the grids you desire.

    Remember level 10 size grid



    Then go to \Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator\scenery\vegetation folder

    In the search area type in the desired grid.

    Example: 4ac0_a040 *Now you can delete or perhaps drag it to a backup folder.

  • The issue is egregious enough that I generally just turn off trees altogether when flying in the New York area......


    Edit: come to think of it, I turn them off in California as well.
