969 lakes, ponds, other bodies of water and counting!

Alaska Lakes: Matanuska-Susitna Valley is a project I started to address the hundreds of lakes in Alaska's Matanuska-Susitna Valley that are missing water in the default scenery. All lakes have been hand-traced, and if needed, have also been flattened to make them more suitable for floatplane operations.

Released as an early access, it is my intention to add more lakes, ponds, & other bodies of water over time. This package does not include the bodies of water I have fixed in my other Alaska scenery releases, but fills in the gaps between them. So, if you want an even better Mat-Su valley to fly in, check out these other sceneries that I have released:


NOTAMs
  • This package was designed with the Alaska Water Height fix addon (by Baddweapon) installed, and is not known to cause any conflicts. If you are running an older version, please update to version 1.2!
  • This package may conflict with Julysfire's Talkeetna, Alaska Area Airport/Scenery Pack, but has not been tested!
  • Some users may experience terrain spikes near some bodies of water. This is a known issue that has been reproduced and acknowledged by Asobo. This is a core sim issue only happening in certain areas and will need to be addressed by Asobo in a future update.

You know your work is always excellent anyway, but here 5 stars as reminder 😊

Hello,

Is it also compatible with ORBX NA Alaska Mesh?

Thank you

Do we now still need the Alaska Water Heights fix? It isn't certified as SU5 compatible yet.

Alaska Lakes: Matanuska-Susitna Valley has been updated to v0.3.0. This new update has finally focused on those lakes that are outside of the aerial coverage area. Adding 94 lakes, ponds, and other bodies of water to the East of Talkeetna (Bald Mountain area).

Unfortunately, with this good news comes a bit of bad. Several updates ago, Asobo changed how terraforming was handled for bodies of water. The method used at the time is no longer supported, so some terraforming that was done in the previous update is no more.

However, I did go ahead and fix a couple dozen of the larger lakes in this release. Mostly to the north of the valley. Hopefully by the next update, all terraforming will be redone. At least on the lakes more acceptable for landing..

Alaska local here. I trained at Wolf Lake (4AK6) in this area. Thank you for your work! If you ever do any work on Merrill Feild in Anchorage I would download in a heartbeat!
merci beaucoup
Thanks for doing this area.

I have always really appreciated and admired the incredible work you have done in FSX, P3D and now MSFS. You have a real tallent for scenery design and a great eye for detail! It is reflected in the lengths you go to bring life and realisim to the scenery you create. Hope this helps a little and keep up the great work!
