US Forests and Woodland for Ortho scenery Version 1.0.0

On behalf of X-Plane.Org user antwob, we’ve pleaded that we have his approval to promote and host his re-uploaded US Forests and Woodland for Ortho scenery.

As indicated by Tony himself “This is a reupload of a scenery I created early last year whilst working on L52 Oceano and being annoyed by default trees covering the beach.”

This scenery will add more accurate forests and woodland for use with photoscenery for the entire United States (Including Alaska and Hawaii) and is generated using the USGS foresty cover data collected around 2012 onwards.
This is a direct conversion of the data with some simplificaton and processing applied for performance reasons.

The scenery is meant for users of photoscenery only and will do the following:

– Remove trees across the default overlay sceneries, e.g. Trees covering beaches or fields
– Added much more accurate and dense forests/trees to be used on top of photoscenery.

What it won’t do:

– Show the correct forest type (e.g. Decidious, Conifer). This information wasn’t in the data, so mostly the forests are generic.
– Add treelines and individual trees in towns and cities
– Add forests where there aren’t any in the data (So if it’s missing, it’s probably not in the data I had)

To install, just unzip (using something such as 7zip) and drop into your Custom Scenery folder. The forest scenery should come above all your photoscenery and overlay sceneries, but below and airports.
