This is a small project undertaken as a learning process for the new scenery design tools for FSX. It serves to "fix" two small areas of the Los Angeles, CA. area; the Hollywood sign and Dodger Stadium, home of the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team. In default FSX the Hollywood sign sits atop of the hill, while in real life it sits slightly south, on the downslope towards the area referred to as Hollywood. Dodger Stadium sits in an area known as Chavez Ravine, which in default FSX meant sitting in a hole. Both of these are better positioned, but in no way are meant to be an exact duplication of either landmark. This package also places default items up on top of the hill above the Hollywood sign, but again are not meant to be an exact duplication of the real area. Installation is via standard scenery installation practices. Extract the zip keeping the folder structure intact. Cut and paste the LA_cleanup folder to the Addon Sccnery folder within FSX. Note there is not, nor should there be a texture file listed under LA_cleanup. Start FSX, select Settings, Scenery Library, Add Area and navigate to LA_cleanup, press OK. Now fly around and enjoy a part of SoCal. This addon is for FSX and will work with Ultimate Terrain : USA for FSX. However, with UT:USA for FSX I would recommend renaming the file cvx_stadium_lot.bgl to cvx_stadium_lot.bak.

I couldn't get your download to the scenery library from add-on scenery. Should it work from there?

Also, my FSX doesn't show the Hollywood sign, with or without the add-on. Wonder why?

Would appreciate an e-mail if you see this. Thanks.

Hollywood local here... NICE job, mate. Was a joy to fly around, and your screenshots don't do the new models justice - on close fly-by's they're even more impressive. I'll post some in the gallery.
