This scenery is designed to work best with:

Vehicle Library Extension (http://forums.x-pilo...n-xp9xp10-isdg/)

FlyJSim Asphalt Textures (http://forums.x-plan...&showfile=16270)

SkyMAXX sky colouring using "Vivid Skies" (http://forums.x-plan...&showfile=15821)

BeachMAXX Ocean Textures (http://forums.x-plan...&showfile=17311)

Wide Taxiway Line Markings (http://forums.x-pilot.com/index.php/files/file/406-wide-taxiway-markings-library-replacement/)

__________________________________________________________

Still to fix:

- Some buildings are still a little too "glow in the dark" at night.

These are converts from AussiePak1 which were toned down, but could use some better lighting.

- Lost the edge grass facade functionality in the 10.20 betas. Bug report submitted.

Good job, keep up the amazing work!

Excellent work guys, thanks for sharing it with us. 

I usually fly around Europe and Mexico, areas where I am familiar with, but with this kind of add-ons (YSSY, YPAD and the latests New Zealand Pro by alpilox) I am moving to the far side of the world.
