Okay, here's the slightly modified scenery in FS2002. ;D I say slightly because I moved all the Airport 2.02, and Vod Textures into the scenery's texture folder. ;D This is the view from ground level in the Cessna 182.
The Beech at Cork, Ireland! I have one more city to go and I've completed my circumnavigation of the Irish coastline. Waterford is the last stop. Then I start exploring the inland sections of the island! ;D I've seen a lot of really nice looking places, but nothing that's jumping out and saying "Ireland" in my face! ;D
The First Half of My Irish travels Are Done! ;D With the reaching of Waterford, I've flown around the whole coastline. While I did find some areas on the charts marked as Lighthouses, with NDBs, I didn't see any actual lighthouses. No ships, lots of roads and villages, towns, cities and houses too! ;D I did find a few areas on the coastline that might be riverheads and I saved the flights so I can check them out again! Ireland seems to be a very wet country, no wonder it's rumoured to be so green!
Okay, I figured out where the bug was in my last scenery as far as the taxiway goes. There were no winter, fall or spring textures for the setup I chose, only summer! So when I checked all the marks for the four seasons, it did what I told it too.
The next scenery project is going to be "Rattlesnake Gulch" ;D, and will be in Colorado. Dirt Strip, Ghost Town, Plane with 1 Gallon of gas in the tank! You get the picture!
Bow Ties Are Cool!

I just got through thanking Gary for his Tri Motor site - I mentioned Rattlesnake Gulch as something I'm grateful for, too!
MANY THANX FOR YOUR EFFORTS!!!
I still have all my old FS98 scenery and aircraft (got it all from the web!!!) but I really have no need for it anymore (but I'm getting older and I'm allowed to be nostalgic). Any effort to upgrade any of that scenery is a great idea to me! I ask out of ignorance: FS2002 scenery works just fine in FS9 and GW3 (my primary FS editions)(I only fly SEA in FSX). Why not upgrade to FS9 (2004) or am I caught in a semantics debate I have no knowledge of?
May the Mass times the Acceleration be with You always!
More of economics than semantics! ;D If I didn't find FS2002 at my friendly Office Depot for $10.00 for the Standard version, I'd still be flying FS98 chiefly! There were a lot of great people working hard on Golden Wings back in those days! And the crowd has only gotten bigger since FS2000! ;D Now there are so many great things to choose from for FS2002, and FS2004 it would be impossible to put everything on one computer!

15 Minutes flying time from Tiree Island was Barra Island, Scotland! ;D Weather was perfect day for the Scottish, solid overcast and thunderstorms! Excellent day for Golf on the Links! I'm looking for some darker smoke, this Goose is a little too clean. If anyone knows of some really filthy smoke effects let me know! ;D I'm actually looking for a Goose in Bush Flyers Unlimited livery, but an Albatross might work too. My Virtual Handicap is 12, but no VC in this Goose, so no place for the clubs!

;D My Duck was attacked by a pair of residents of the city with a double-barrel shotgun while on final approach! Luckily, THIS duck was equipped with a AN/ALQ-212 Flare Dispenser, which blinded the do-badders! ;D Stay tuned until Next week...! Actually, it was a freak of the scenery similar to what I experienced over Londerberrry Ireland, except in this case, over flying the airport didn't fix the scenery! It seems that due to the hills Glascow is slightly below the base scenery! ;D Taking off was fine from the airport, just landing was tough!

;D 1938 Pascagoula Mississippi! Here's the site of the next scenery project for FS2002! A fishing village in 1938 Pascagoula, Mississippi. I had to go with 1938 because over the pilot's shoulder you can see the cranes from the Ingall's Shipyard which opened in 1938. This project will be called "Shrimper's Cove"!
Great Britain, with a semi-focus on London. My next scenery project will take place over the pond! ;D There are going to be several areas covered all over the country from The London Blitz to the current day!
