The NL2000 team is often experimenting with new features for the scenery. Often these experiments don't end up in the released scenery. But this new NL2000 release has evolved from such an experiment.
A few years ago when it was snowing outside, the idea was born to make a wintry snow version of the scenery as well. By using special Photoshop filters we were able to turn the aerial imagery of our photo scenery into a snowy variant. With this imagery we build a new photo scenery and in the options screen of the installer you can now switch between the normal and the snowy scenery. To get the best looking results, we advice to put the FSX season on winter, so that the autogen trees are without leaves.
But this release not only includes a winter scenery, it also includes a new night scenery for the photo scenery. In this night scenery the roads are illuminated and lights are scattered around in towns and cities. This gives a very realistic view when flying at night. The next effects work with both the normal and the snow scenery. And if you get lost while flying in the night, you can always navigate using the lighthouses.
There is also good news for helicopter pilots, we have relocated and renamed the oilrigs in the scenery so that they match the real world situation much better. You can find all information about this in the manual.
The NL2000 team wishes you a nice flight through the snow or during the night!
