I am looking at creating some photo scenery for FS9 but need some step by step
advice of how to do this. Can anyone recommend a a source of information
on this subject? I have tried the Godzone tuturial but that seems to skip over
a lot of fine detail which is important for a beginner.

There are many people on this forum far more competent than I but perhaps that
will get you started (the SDK's are obtained from MS's games website) and as I
have very recently been going up the learning curve, I may be able to answer
'silly' questions(which of course are not silly) as I probably will have
recently made the mistakes .
