Zion Canyon National park, Utah

This is Zion Canyon National Park scenery V1.0

Most of the well known locations are included:
  • Zion Canyon Overlook
  • Observation Point
  • Angels Landing
  • Zion National Park Lodge
  • The East Temple
  • The West Temple
  • Canyon Overlook
  • The Sentinel
  • Mountain Of The Sun
  • Church Mesa
  • Hepworth Wash
  • Canyon Junction Bridge
The East Temple terrian height has been corrected as it was set too high in the default scenery.
Due to the limited SDK tools at the moment you cannot land on the scenery, & snow textures will not show.
I am hoping that in future versions I will be able to include this.
I will also be uploading a version in which the colour blends better with the default scenery, so you can take your pick.


The file size is large so it may take longer to load this scenery prior to flight. I have noted only a very small hit to FPS, much less of a hit then in city areas with photogrammetry.
I have added a Point Of Interest marker so it is selectable from the world map "Zion National Park" to view the scenery
**Installation:**
Simply extract the file "zionnationalpark" to your Community Folder.

    This basically killed my game. I run MSFS on ultra settings, but my computer could not handle this. I think you have something wrong.

    Getting a performance hit via a really bad stutter when flying. Any suggestions on how to fix this, as it seem this is working well for other people?

    Thanks Steve, glad you enjoyed the scenery.
    Those terrain spikes you saw are worldwide since the latest sim update. I'm sure that a fix will be released soon by Asobo.

    Just did a VR flight out of St George at sunrise and it was beautiful. Really, really nice job on this!!!
    I did notice a couple of the death spikes from hell in the area. Has anybody else
    seen these?

    It is not working for me either. I have loaded other sceneries from this site that have worked. Not sure why this one is not loading for me. I had two friends add it and it worked for them but not me.

    Not working for me. Extracted to my community folder but the POI marker doesn't show up, and the terrain is not upgraded. Not sure why, other scenery and aircraft in my community folder function as expected.

    This looks exactly like real life down to the smallest detail. Easily one of the most beautiful places I've been to in the US, thank you for making this.

    Only minor gripe I have is that my FPS sometimes takes a hit, but that's likely just my PC.

    This really looks incredible, it hammered my load time when installed but well worth the wait.

    Absolutely gorgeous scenery. Just visited here irl and it is awesome to fly around now in the sim. My main complaint is that you can fly through the mountains so you can't land on them. Additionally when you get close to the ground the tree's look like crazy polygons. For fly over scenery I give this a 10/10
