Very confusing version numbers. How do you go from v1.9 to v1.10? v1.9 = v1.90. V1.10 is just that, 1.10. 1.90 is a much higher number than V1.10. But the new version is v1.10? That sent me scrambling to see if I was downloading addons from two separate developers.....

Love the mod but it looks like the trees are massive. Is there a way to reduce the palm heights by half?

ummmm since this latest update on the IRNMN2 arrival into KLAX in the Malibu hills, Topanga State Park and in parts of Santa Monica, there are HUGE rectangle buildings / objects scattered throughout there. thought I'd let you know since no one else has seemed to have noticed this. keep up the amazing work. I do have a screenshot saved incase you wanted to see what I am talking about.

Thank you!

Does this work with all the other water fixes or is it combination of them?

Nice mod, thank you.

Great work, the sim makes SoCal more lush than it actually is.

Can you clean up the Santa Clarita area? When on the ILS for VNY there is a big river that actually is all dried out.

What amazing work you do! Thank you. Does this area include San Diego County? That area is gorgeous and deserving of some TLC. Also, I wish to donate, can't see a place to do it tho.

I see what you did here! and I love it! Never understood why so many trees! I recommend a fix in Philadelphia if you have a chance! Thanks for your great add on! definitely a must have!

When adding the file folder am I supposed to extract the folder or can I just drag and drop in the community folder?

Do you know if this is compatible with Bijan Trees?

I have a question. I just flew over UCSD and Sea World in San Diego (I'm a local) and it looks like you removed all vegetation from those areas and left all the PG trees, etc. Is there any more to it?

Why are mine photogrammetry trees just big towers of beams? These monolith of so called trees are scary, is there any fix?

Hey, great work here. Can you work on Burbank/Glendale and San Fernando valley area?

Add a comparison picture so we can 'note the difference'

Great work on this and badly needed since autogen trees are still way too large compared to photogrammetry trees. I've been working on some edits with tree removal and other improvements for the SF Bay Area but I've been too busy to continue it, so it's awesome to see LA covered. Thank you very much!

P.S. I suggest adding more screenshots especially of the amusement parks up close to show the difference it makes in details of those iconic places 😊

I also suggest excluding from stadiums as well (aside from a couple you have posted already). There are also many misplaced trees on small bridges over creeks, freeways, and overpasses but it's a lot to ask for on the scale of LA.

These items are currently on the list and will be processed soon!
