Gerrish's Trees Library for FS2002 (1) Autogen Trees Replacement FS2002 Scenery. A high quality replacement for the default Autogen tree textures. All 19 different trees, palms and shrubs used for the Autogen vegetation are replaced with enhanced high-resolution images depicting each of the five seasons: spring, summer, autumn, winter and 'hard winter' (i.e. snow). Transforms the appearance of the FS2002 scenery. By Gerrish Gray. 1.5MB gtl_agen.zip
Replacement AutoGen Tree Textures (Third Alternative Version) FS2002 Scenery. Here is my third alternative replacement for the AutoGen vegetation texture sheets that provide the trees in the FS2002 scenery (see GTL_AGEN.ZIP and MSTREES.ZIP for the others). This one is a second enhancement of the new set recently released by Microsoft as part of the AutoGen SDK. The number and variety of the trees is increased and undergrowth has been added to further increase the density of the tree cover. A number of other details have been modified to improve the overall appearance. Forests now have up to 3,500 trees per sq km, compared with the scanty 600 of the original FS2002 release, and the tropics look more realistically 'tropical' with lush green bush below the palm fronds.

Gerrish's Trees Library for FS2000/2 Release 3 - Updated Version FS2000 & FS2002 Scenery / Scenery Design. This is my complete Trees Object Library, updated and re-issued as a single package. (Not to be confused with my series of Autogen tree replacements for improving the default trees in the FS2002 landscape, see the separate downloads GTL_AGEN.ZIP, MSTREES.ZIP, and MSTREES2.ZIP). The package includes the Trees Library file itself and all required textures, with simple instructions for use with any sceneries, old or new, that state that they need "Gerrish's Trees Library". The textures come in two versions: the original set designed for FS2000/2 and an updated set for use with FS2002 only.

Also included is a revised version of the SDK for scenery designers for the creation of sceneries incorporating these high-quality trees. The library provides 20 different styles of tree (including deciduous types, conifers, and a couple of palms), each available in a range of shapes and with various patterns of seasonal behaviour for use in different parts of the world, giving a total of 1600 variations, each of which can be used at any desired size, from a 1-2m high bush to giant, 100m tall, forest firs. The 24 different API macros in the SDK allow the trees to be placed either as individual specimens or in various realistic groupings. 3.2MB
