It hits a lot of the big sights in the Southwest - Zion, Bryce, Shiprock, Mesa Verde, the Painted Desert, the Grand Canyon etc - and takes you through some striking landscape changes, from desert to canyonlands to high mesa to forested mountains to volcanic fields and back. And if you want to find out who does the best cheeseburger in the Rockies, this trip has you covered.
The default version of the trip can be done in the XCub, if you like a plane with GPS. I've also included a version which can be done in the Savage Carbon, if you want to get away from the tyranny of the magenta line. Note that you will need to install the Savage Carbon separately to do this trip; it is not included in these files.
Either unzip both files to your Community folder, or:
Unzip swusa-bush-trip to your Community folder if you only want the XCub experience
Unzip swusa-sc-bush-trip to your Community folder if you only want the Savage Carbon experience. NB you will need to download and install the plane separately, see link below.
Mods to enhance the experience:
Mappamundi's Scenery Glitch Fix - https://flightsim.to/file/5167/scenery-glitch-fixes-for-update-1-12-13-0 - this removes many ugly giant spikes from the landscape. I guess Asobo will eventually fix these but in the meantime this is a wonderful fix.
Savage Carbon - STOL Realism Mod - https://flightsim.to/file/3723/savage-carbon-stol-realism-mod - if you want to do the Savage Carbon trip.

Of the above, I'd consider Bryce and the Very Large Array very close to essential. Because the scenery files can cause long loading times, you should only activate them for the leg they are needed in. These legs are:
Leg 2 - Zion
Leg 4 - Bryce
Leg 7 - Monument Valley
Leg 20 - Very Large Array
A huge amount of credit goes to f99mlu for his Bush Mission Generator at https://flightsim.to/file/3681/bushmissiongen. I've created bush trips manually before, so I really appreciate what an incredible tool this is, and the massive time-saving impact it has had.
I'd also like to credit Alexander Barthel for his LittleNavMap - http://albar965.github.io/littlenavmap.html, which was invaluable for flight planning the trip.
Thanks to GotGravel for permission to create a bush trip around the Savage Carbon. The trip hopefully holds up equally well whether you're using GPS or relying on navigational instructions.
Finally, a lot of the airports in MSFS are obsolete or have been closed down in real life. I'm indebted to Paul Freeman and his website, Abandoned and Little-Known Airfields - http://www.airfields-freeman.com/index.htm, which covers all 50 states and provided a wealth of interesting background reading; and for giving permission to use a photo of his. I wish I could have used far more photos. Check out the website if you're interested in that kind of thing at all.
Most images used are creative commons-licensed. There's a full list of image and source material credits in the Credits text file included, done by Leg, if you're curious about anything in the trip.

I guess thats nothing a third-party could make, since its some core-sim functionality.
I think its time for a section "working on". It would be so good to see if anyone is actually working on something particular, to avoid multiple people doing the same thing. There is this request section on flightsim.to which is awesome, however, I suggest a supplementary section, where people can actually upload their WIP.
why no one is making a replay mode
sorry for question but...how can download the wallpapers?
Would it be a lot of trouble putting the version number in the My Uploads page?
Bring back the 48hrs Recent Activity drop down please!
You'll probably find it now under Featured -> This Days Best
That was quick with the version number. Thanks, you're doing an awesome job with this site!
