Canada overgrown with trees

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.

I have recently gotten a problem in my sim. As I was starting a ferry flight in a Piper from Alaska to England, I discovered during installation of the wonderful freeware sceneries for Canada (used them many times before), that basically all of Canada is overgrown with autogen trees By that, I mean airports, high arctic etc. Even around the Northwest passage, it basically looks like a jungle.

I do not want to do a reinstall, as I have customized my sim with heavy AI for all of the world etc.

I am using UT Canada/Alaska/USA and GE Pro, as well as FSGlobal 2010 for mesh. After trying to disable and "error search" this problem, nothing seems to help. THe only thing I could to was to create some exclude squares over the airport. Still, it looks quite unrealistic with dence forrests in the high arctic.

The problem seems to be isolated to only Canada, as Alaska and the rest of the US is fine, while Toronto as well is completely overgrown, even with addon airports.

Is there anyone who can help? :)

All the best

Have you checked the scenery order? This is normally the cause of your problem.

Yes I have checked it. The thing is that this even happens with no addons present. Basically all of Canada. UT CAN is above the mesh files (often I cannot use the mesh for the high arctic airports, as this tends to leave the airports in a sinkhole.

It's the default landclass, unfortunately none of the mesh or scenery layers you have will change that - I have exactly the same setup as you and have searched far and wide for Canada landclass, if anyone else has found just one I'd be delighted.

I do recall flying a lot in the high arctic in Canada on my previous setup, and can very clearly remember that there were no forrests up there back then.

Interesting! I had scenery for Yellowknife at one time and don't recall having forests in that area either, I can't remember if it included it's own landclass though, it's been a few years since then. I do know that there are forests where there ought to be towns within the UT Canada scenery area, but there doesn't seem to be a patch for it like the EUCity patch for Europe which allows other scenery to show through.

Yellowknife does have LOTS of trees in the real world. I have the same problem on the Alaska panhandle after installing Tongass and have no idea how to get rid of them. I'm using P3dV3.3.5.

I think I need to de-activate all my addon scenery for Canada and see what I get as default. I also have Tongass, Misty Fjords etc. in FS9 and have noticed issues on their boundaries with the default/other scenery but I didn't think it went any further than that.
