A fun pack featuring new ground textures, rock texture upgrades, and general tidying of Yosemite Valley, California, USA for Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) 2020 release.

Yosemite Valley screenshot.​The Yosemite valley region was not truly and faithfully represented in MSFS 2020 so this pack aims to bring the region up to true-to-life detail and has plans for ongoing (future) updates by the developer.

All of the major landmarks and highpoints in the valley are included and re-represented including;

  • El Capitan
  • Half Dome
  • Glacier Point
  • Bridalveil Falls
  • Yosemite Falls
  • Vernal & Nevada Falls

Waterfalls in the area are included and have been even hand-mastered to capture them in the highest detail.

This pack has planned future upgrades from the developer.

Planned future work by the developer:

  • Creating normal maps to add finer detail when viewing objects from a closer distance
  • Subdividing some areas of the geo and smoothing out some of the weird jagged shapes photogrammetry sometimes creates
  • Get the FX system working from Asobo to add working waterfalls
  • Get the animal SDK details to add some wandering around the park... (that said, there IS some stationary wildlife if you look very carefully)
  • Do more paintwork to reduce the "baked in shadows" on some of the cliff faces from the photomapping

Now version 1.1

This update is the first step in what will be a total rework of the scenery. It replaces the model of El Capitan with a more efficient medium res model but to which has been attached a very detailed color and normal map texture that looks great no matter how close you get.

There are two files to choose from. The full version uses a 16k color & normal map, and a 'medium' version where those have been downres'd to 4k each. This should hopefully help GPUs with less memory.

*** ONLY El Capitan is updated in this version, the rest of the scenery is the same as version 1.0 The process I'm using is manually intensive so I will release other areas as I finish them. Half Dome is next on the list...

Wow, been there on the ground and wondered what it would be like to fly it, now I know, including clipping El Capitain. Clearly need to learn how to fly better, Good news no damage to the environment :)

Brilliant job, thank you.

Not sure how to install this package. Any instructions somewhere?

Thanks.
