Notes (important)

- Support your freeware creators
A point I always found important to get out. Imagine the flight simulator world without the amazing work of your freeware creators. Imagine the amount of resources, time and skills that go into making all ours sim world so much more enjoyable. Imagine how motivating for all those creators it is to get all your feedback, comments, appreciations and support - and it definitely is. Consider giving back to all those people who make all of this possible. A nice comment, valuable feedback and/or a donation means the world to us. Even small donations help with maintaining/keeping hard drive space, materials & textures, software subscriptions, and and and.

But as always:
It's never expected, but always highly appreciated!

Content

General
I've created this library alongside my newest scenery "Rusty Barge Airstrip", however, it's main purpose is to serve in more general bush and backcountry sceneries, so that those types of sceneries will get more stuff to play around with. I will further expand this library with more stuff as I move along - time and motivation permitted of course.
Most of the screenshots are from the Rusty Barge scenery and not everything included in the library is depicted.

Windsock
I finally got around to include a rudimentary windsock working. It's working with the wind. It's visibile from a very long distance. One thing that always bothered me was the small draw distance of windsocks around. So this one is visible from a very long distance, to make you spot it from more than the opposite runway end. For creators: Place the windsock with a heading of 0° in the scenery editor to make it work correctly.

1x windsock

Vegetation
512-2K. This is still a WIP section. Foliage creation and shading in MSFS is a hurdle. You'll find a mix between 3D and 2D (cross plane) elements in here. In particular the 2D shading and culling at low distances is a problem and I try to improve it in the future, however, for now especially with low angle backlighting, the shading of the foliage can look a bit strange. It almost comes down to technical limitations of the engine, but I'll try to work on this. This also means, that some of the models may change in the future in such a way that they will have to be placed anew - I will try to minimize those changes as best as I can.

3x birch tree
3x birch tree young
3x spruce trees
3x spruce trees dead
3x spruce tree young
1x mountain ash bush
2x patches of berry bush
7x wildflower blue
3x wildflower purple
4x wildflower fireweed
2x wild grass tall
3x nettle patch
2x grass variation 1 patch
2x grass variation 2 patch
1x thyrse patch
3x fleabane patch
3x billberry bush patch

Objects
2K texture resolution. Smaller object variations share a 2K texture for further optimization. However, this mean, the texture resolution is not well suited for super close ups and it isn't intended for such.

5x oil barrel
3x mossy boulder
3x lichen boulder
3x ice boulder/drift ice
2x rock patch
1x campfire lit
1x campfire unlit
1x fire flame
3x shipping container
2x crate
1x EUR pallet
3x 3 wire fence (5m, 10m, 20m)
3x 2 wire fence (5m, 10m, 20m)
3x wood fence (4m, 8m, 16m)
3x chainmail fence (5m, 10m, 20m)
2x firewood pile
1x log bench
3x log cut
1x log cut pile
3x log broken
3x log broken variation 2
3x log broken variation 3
3x log broken variation 3 pile
1x tripod & cooking pot
1x sign
3x tree stump
1x barge
1x dinghy/jon boat
2x canoe (red/green)
1x paddle
3x base camp tent
7x old car tires in black, white, red
1x picnic table

Buildings
2K-4K texture resolution. I would like to add night lighting shining from inside of the buildings when it's dark, however, I haven't found a way yet to stop the light to bleed out of the entire object making it look completely wrong. Another thing I will try to improve on in the future.

4x sheds
3x cabin variation 01
1x cabin variation 02
1x firewood shelter
1x outhouse
1x stilted deck
1x stair

--------------------------------------

Suggestions
If you have ideas of other stuff that would be nice to be included and it would be a reasonable addition to a bush and backcountry library, let me know and I will consider it for a future update

Performance
Watch the performance of your sceneries as you go along. Plastering the surroundings of your airstrip with hundreds of copies of vegetation will definitely bring down the performance while using your scenery. Use the objects wisely, also because I haven't come around to create LODs for the objects - a thing I may start to do in the future.

------------------------------------

Questions, comments, feedback and support always highly appreciated!
Enjoy!

It is a greath library for making bushstrips more lively. Thanks so much. What would be interessant for the future? At presents I would say more different fences and some desert vegetation.

Thank you! It would be great if you could add a visual reference guide to the library in future.
