Emerald Scenery Design has just announced that they have done a lot of improvements to Bear Island freeware scenery. Scenery will be available for FSX, FSX:SE and P3D V2 to V4.
Main difference is that they have added new Stump and Log models. As well as a new shoreline near the dock, more (placed) vegetation and finally a complete overhaul of some of the current vegetation.
Developers have totally rebuilt the models for the Reeds, Weeds and Wildflowers to give them a more dense look.
When it comes to performance the Water Reed models use tiny less polygons so the end result is a bit better but barely noticeable. Sadly the Weeds and Grass models has almost doubled in complexity making it more performance heavy.
End result should equal and improve once they add the Levels of Detail in again. They hope that the result will be better in visuals.
Emerald Scenery Design has no release date planned as of yet as it’s still in active development. We will keep you updated here on FSElite as more information comes out.
