From memory, I recall the bits I couldn't remove were eventually unearthed in FS9\ Addon Scenery \ Scenery.

Looks totally different!

You've put your finger on the right spot as I still have the NL2000 scenery
installed. As you rightly say it is going to be a pig of a job to remove
this but I'd better get started.

I'm happy to say that mine doesn't seem to look like that. Bearing in mind I'm using a third part EHRD, not Default, mine looks as in the shot at http://www.homepages.mcb.net/gwinsk/ROTTERDAM.jpg You haven't still got traces of that awful Netherlands 2000, or whatever it was called? It wreaked havoc with my system and was difficult to completely remove all traces.

Arggghh. It must have captured the link rather than the image URL. Just
tried again and it did the same thing. Hang on..

http://www.homepages.mcb.net/bones/jhb/Repaints/PMDG737.jpg is the
correct link but if you don't trust it <g> just go to the JHB Aircraft
page where I have been updating some of the pictures.

I don't know if it is me or not but I took a trip over to Holland
today when testing an aircraft. The photo scenery looked very good
indeed (at
first) but then I saw something odd. Town edges were a bit too straight
lined and woods and other objects to well defined.

A closer look at Rotterdam revealed that the city was wrapped in
repetitive bitmaps and the sharp city edges chopped this off mid
street or even mid house. The truth slowly dawned that all I am
looking at is very well made landclass scenery, not photo mapping like
in the UK. I eventually ran across a true photo texture just north of
EHRD but it was poor quality and I had to almost on top of it before
it would show. The edge of this photo texture didn't blend into the
surrounding landclass at all well.

The landclass is extremely well made and it is very detailed -
probably the best I have seen. However, although good it does have a
slightly artificial air to it and you feel you are looking at a
synthetic landscape - I think it's the sharp edges for cities,
coastlines and woods that create this impression. True that the
landclass is photo textured BUT it isn't true photo mapping as has
been done in the UK.

I've taken a screenshot of the scenery at
http://www.homepages.mcb.net/bones/04fs/download/JHB%20PMDG737.zip .
The photo texture is to the left of the picture (under that aircraft
nose) and the landclass starts abeam the rear of the engine pod.

For the huge number of bitmaps loaded I would have thought more areas
would have been photo textured. However, if that had been the case it
would have been pointless to have created such detailed landclass.

Anyone else find the same of is my setup?
