I uploaded some screenshots in the User Gallery that document some weird blending in the landscape. Not sure what causes it, but maybe you'd like to have a look? (Images can take up to 48 hours to be uploaded)

Hi, I just installed "Rendsburg - EDXR", but now see that you list is as a conflicting scenery. May I ask what the issues are?

Habe gerade meine Eindrücke von meinen 2 Kiel Rundflügen und der Entdeckung am Leuchtturm Friedrichsort beschrieben. Und schon gibts die neue Nord-Ostseekanal Version als Draufgabe. Unbesehen 5 Stars, die Version bin ich nämlich in der Version 1 komplett abgeflogen.

Thank you for your nice scenery.

Ιn the libraries mentioned in “About” INFO, there are 2 libraries the 

c. "jay_seaplane_asset"  and the

d. "esd-modellib-eolib"

which are not mentioned in the “Dependencies (17)” chapter.

I was not able to find these 2 libraries in flightsim.to. Are these necessary and if yes can you give the links for these libraries?

Thank you.
