    Good catch, Mike.

    Do you remember Compuserve? I were only a lad when I sent my first email. Aye - back then, I 'ad to walk over t' moors to get to t' nearest 'phone kiosk and plug in t' portable ordio mow-dem...

    I guess their autogen replaces Treescapes??

    I have been testing various areas in P3D, Haverfordwest, Swansea, Cardiff, North Wales, and London and Peter has done one hell of a good job with this using Open Street Map Data and Scenproc which I use too. He has autogen for both trees and buildings and it does bring the flight sim to life.

    PS Just been reading your review of ES TreeScapes UK by "Doc" Williams in 2011. "Aye only tree no building e those wer' th' day' lad".

    You should be OK although I do recall what Groucho Marx said, " "PLEASE ACCEPT MY RESIGNATION. I DON'T WANT TO BELONG TO ANY CLUB THAT WILL ACCEPT PEOPLE LIKE ME AS A MEMBER".

    Cheers Mike.

    PS A tip from Peter was to use the ORBX trees not the default FSX and or P3D. I will "We Transfer" to you in a mo.

    Thanks, Tony - I only consider myself as a guest in God's Country - only lived there for 7 years, but they were good, mind! Pie and peas is still my favourite, especially from Pie Tom's on t' Bradford Ring Road!

    Thanks Mike - will install said trees.

    Cheers - Dai, Cool

    By Golly, those colours are bright - what's going on in the light grey fields, then?

    Nice trees, mind!

    I removed the FSX aircraft cockpit "glass" set up for use in P3D otherwise it shows very dark reflections that you can't see through. Cheers Mike.

    Hi Dave and welcome to the madhouse Simhaven forum!

    When do you get the problem? Did you register with CIX VFR before trying to download?

    I have the download link as:

    https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=0Byn9605PQfMeVGU5RHhWaVlxSUE

    Does that work for you?

    Cheers - Dai. Cool

    Thanks Dai, I'll try the link.

    The only one I could find took me to a website 'Mega.nz' and the zip file is pass worded throughout.

    That link has the same password protection I'm afraid. Each sub folder requires a password.

    Hi and welcome, you need to be a member of CIX VFR to obtain the password as its the hard work and copyright of Peter Memmott. Cheers Mike. PS. Is it all of the UK you need for auto-gen or a small local area? PPS. Just tested David's link to Google Drive and it downloads OK without a password!

    Thanks for your help, sorry I didn't realise I needed to join CIX. I'm waiting approval.

    Iv'e been 'playing' with FSX since it first came out but now moved on to P3D V4. My scenery collection has grown over the years but it would be nice to get some decent autogen/scenery for the UK.

    Currently using Megascenery England/Ireland and Playsims for Scotland/Isle of Man, Sciliy Isles. Plus treescapes.

    Thanks again,

    Dave

    PS I do realise, and appreciate, how much work goes into creating scenery.

    Thanks for your help everyone: I've managed to download the file again from and found the password on their forum.

    May have to ditch the Megascenery files and reinstall Horizon's VFR set - I'm getting tired of the lack of water masking and floating around the world on autopilot!

    I'll let you know how it goes and a big thank you to Peter - must have taken you forever, i wouldn't know where to start.
