I made this because I wasn't 100% happy with any one complete seat of water textures currently about. So I collected all the water textures and water add-ons made since 2004 and mixed them together to create a real-world-look water effect that looks nice at a distance or close range. Credit to anyone who's made a water effect and put it online... chances are if it's been posted, its been used in here somewhere. Although it uses much computing power I highly recommend your water display settings in FS2004 are set to it's highest. ~Backup original textures!~

This is as easy as it gets! I have far, FAR too many FS mods and add-ons installed and do my best to keep track of them all especially when releasing an add-on. The truth of the matter is unless you have massive scenery and texture database it is quite possible you do not have all the matching files installed in FS to see the lighting FX correctly. This, 99.9% of the time, affects the airport lighting. (I haven’t come across the other 0.01% yet but it may be out there) This is to address the “Square airport lights” issue that may appear with Spike’s FS2004 MOD’s. (YBSS, YSPK, YLIL, YHOT, YTWB) If lighting is a problem for you it will be obvious, as the added airport lights will appear as large white squares resembling a digital FS poo rather than a light. This is simply due to the FX file referring to a texture file that, effectively, doesn’t exist. So I’ve made this little add-on for the add-on for those who prefer a “lite” version of FS installed. It tells the FX files to call upon a different texture. This texture is standard with FS2004. (I’ve also added it to this pack). This texture is small and optimised so it’ll run fast without taking up precious resources.

The original FS2004 YXXX airfields had bugs in the taxiways. In fact 99% of FS taxiways have errors. For the sake of maintaining an acceptable level of virtual reality continuity I have gone through, individually fixed and checked 113 Australian airports. These airports have not been modified from their stock layout, only the taxiways have been fixed.

FS2004 Scenery (FS2004 Only) Africa - Tanzania - V-shaped trench correction This is a self-contained scenery and it does not alter any of FS2004's native files. At location lat -6.74 lon +34.05, in Tanzania, Africa, there is a huge V-shaped trench that is obviously not natural and couldn't possibly be real and be man-made. Each leg of the V is over a hundred kilometres long and one thousand metres deep. This scenery "anomaly" appears in FSX as well, but in FSX it is made in a different way. In FSX the trench is formed by a narrow, long, V-shaped airport grass background. In FS2004 I removed by adding several flats. For free distribution only. By Fern Marques email@example.com
