  • Version 2.5 January 03, 2021

    I just added the original "10-asobo_species" file that was modified, in case version 1 users wanted to re-install that file, before copying this new version into their community folder.

  • Version 2.0 January 03, 2021

    This simply goes into your Community folder , rather than your fsbase/vegetation folder.

  • Version 1.0 September 14, 2020

    Initial release of this file just launched. Welcome aboard!

Marvelous! You are true, in some areas the height of the trees is not proportional. Thank you very much! 😊

Hello! Ive got a problem. In my City which is Lima in Perú, the trees are really really small. Is there any option to tweak them bigger? Thanks!
Fantastic, Australia no longer has trees taller than Dubai Skyscrapers, much more immersive, #1 mod for MSFS must do.
Does this mod still work with the latest version of the sim?
can you set the draw distance a bit further on the trees
The screenshots above are surely without the plugin? The trees are huge. Please tell me this isn't with your update.
I can't remember what changes I made in the vegetation folder originally, can you provide those instructions again so I can reverse the changes? I don't like making changes to core systems files and want to check I reversed it out....thanks!
Try this version 2.0 and tell me how your draw distance looks
I love this - thank you. Great job.
I have a question for you - can you change the draw distance as well? There is another mod that extends draw distance but it overwrites the tree height.

Not to worry if you cannot - i prefer these trees and can put up with the low draw distance (even though I have ultra setting for tree and tried lod changes to no avail.....etc).

Mod here for distance ....
hello kingnothing75,

I have been using your fix for a long time, today I made a comparison in the city of Naple, and whether it is with your fix or not, the trees remain as big as the buildings.

Is it possible that with the last update your fix no longer works?

thank you
I take it there's no way to put this into a mod package, it's read to early or that location and or file type just isn't modifiable via mod replacement?
Great job on this.. Much, much needed! It's amazing the difference it makes.. it makes the sim even more immersive and real.. and makes you realise how ridiculous the originial tree sizes actually were!
I would always support more realism with things like this...but I am wondering whether decreasing the size of trees creates the end effect of lowering the perceived tree density?
Great. I was complaining about this since day 1. I live in the tropics and we do not have such a luxurious vegetation.
And mine (Steam) was Microsoft Flight Simulator/Official/Steam/fs-base/vegetation
@jschall mine is in here - \Microsoft Flight Simulator\Packages\Official\Steam\fs-base\vegetation
Well, I placed your 10-asobo_species.xmlfile in the folder:

C:\Users\Jeff\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\Packages\Official\Steam\fs-base\scenery\Global\Asobo_Vegetation.

And the result was I have completely lost all autogen trees in MSFS!

All that remains are the tree images from the Bing aerial photography.

By the way, in my Steam MSFS installation, there is no other "vegetation" folder.

When I saw what had happened, I deleted the .xml file, and added in your 10-asobo_species - ORIG.xml file, whichn I renamed to 10-asobo_species .xml.

I would like to get the autogen trees back!

I'd appreciate any suggestions how I could get them back.

Thank you, but your mod doesn't work for me.
This fix is awesome! I can finally see the rooftops of buildings in Boston's back bay! Thanks for this mod, truly great stuff.
Actually, it goes into the 'vegetation' folder , not Asobo-Vegetation
