Dealing with the desert

Friday, October 27th, 2006

Unfortunately the textures used by FSX for the US Pacific Northwest and Western Canada make the area look like a wasteland, in my opinion and a few others as discussed here.  In that thread (this post) Holger Sandmann kindly puts some perspective on the issue.  Caution: AVSIM does little to discourage non-constructive posting, so you may have to do some wading through their threads for the useful content.

For the adventuresome, here’s a link to a thread with an interesting temporary fix for this issue in British Columbia, Alaska and Alberta.  As for any fix that plays with default files, caution: (a) back up first, and (b) be prepared to reinstall later.

    Hi Jon,

    Alberto and the boys over at Cloud9 just released this for Europe, maybe, it can be cloned for the PNW.
    Holger already has a post on their website. So I see the wheels are spinning!
    Have a great weekend!
