Eliminating power lines (and ugly sandy stripes in terrain)

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to turn off/exclude powerlines from the default scenery. I really want to rid my terrain of these hideous sandy stripes that are tearing through my coniferous northland. They were tolerable in the summer season and look peachy in the desert at any time of year, but look like tushy during the autumn in the north country. It looks like someone gave the landscape a really bad wax job.

The first method worked! I chose the first method because I still want to keep the autogen for the utility lines...just wanted to get rid of the underlying hideous striping.Note, setting the width to 0 does nothing (and apparently reverts back to the default of 40). But setting it to 0.1 expunged it completely.Thank you for the helpful tip!

Thank you so much for this! Even though powerlines are clearly visible in satellite photos I've always thought they looked strange in FS (any version). Now they are gone! :-)/Magnus
