    Hmm. I was just looking for some feedback on the product, not rants. FYI I have been flying MS Flight sims since the 80's when I was lucky to get 2 frames per second in certain situations, usually landing at Meigs field. Every edition of FS I have owned I have added third party products. It's not a cheap hobby for sure. I quite like this edition of FS. Unfortunately I can't go back and get credits for previous software from some vendors that I spent a fortune with (are you listening ORBX?).

    So back to my original questions. Has anyone given this tree addon a try here? Any further indications from Asobo about their changes?

    I use Bijan's trees and can highly recommend them. Asobo haven't mentioned any changes to the base sim vegetation, it could be that they merge Bijan's trees into the base sim in the same way that they did with Working Title's G1000 mod.

    I bought the tree addon a few weeks back after reading how good it was. I still haven’t tried it though! I’ve reinstalled the sim (& Win 11) since and I forgot all about this addon.
    I have to say though.. I was a little less enthusiastic after buying it because I wrongly presumed it would be one program you install, but it’s a few separate files which you install / uninstall as and when you need them. One for spring..one for winter….etc it doesn’t change them automatically when the season changes.

    Thank you Tim and Steve. That's enlightening. I can see where having to swap files in and out would be a PITA. Maybe I'll hang off for a bit. It's a bit of money in CAD$ for an old pensioner like me. Have a great flight guys.

    I decided to bite the proverbial bullet and buy the pack. Was not that much $$$, flew a test flight over Jax, FL (KHEG to KJAX) and was impressed. No hit on framerate, and I think there is now the correct trees for my area. I have not tried the fall/winter pack (comes with), but I have it in my Community folder)

    It's very quick and easy, and only necessary once every three months if it wasn't for the regular updates which Bijan releases with even more accurate vegetation for even the remotest corners of the earth!

    Hi David. Thanks for this. Did you buy the package in the Marketplace or from simmarket? I understand they are quite different.

    I got it from Simmarket, saw the link that was in this thread and went from there.

    I'm really leaning, leaning, leaning. I miss the variety of vegetation. It's about $65 CAD. The premium MSFS edition was $159 CAD. I think I am going to take the plunge. Flying the sim is one of my favourite pastimes. Having worked for 52+ full-time years and recently fully retired I think I deserve it. I will give it another day just to settle my soul.
    Thanks again for your recommendations from a tired old guy. If they could see me I wouldn't be identified as a "Junior Member".

    Got it this am. I must have been looking at a different product as it came in much cheaper than I thought.
    All I can say is WOW.
