Post subject: FSX : Good news, bad news, maybe good news....?

So I got some free time and decided to go for a cruise and investigate more details into how Ascout's sceneries are working in FSX. I've got a whole mess of screenies but let's start with the ones near our home base:

^^-- We're just gonna have to do somethin' about the overgrowth, like throw a tree-clearing party and bring the Chinook out to pull the stumps. Speaking of helos, we got a tree growing right in the middle of the helipad...not that we ever bothered to land our heli's actually IN the helipad circle.....

All in all, looking fairly OK, even interesting, although I'm concerned about what our fresh water supply is gonna be for the brewing now!
