New Sceneries: Harris Hill (Elmira, NY) and Mifflin (Reedsville, PA)

Postby tberry » Sat Feb 06, 2016 11:05 pm

New Photorealistic scenery of Harris Hill, Elmira, NY, US and Mifflin, Reedsville, Pennsylvania, US

Harris Hill is known as the Capital of soaring in the United States and is the location of the US National Soaring Museum. The area is very similar to the Wasserkuppe in Germany and is immediately south of the Finger Lakes of New York State. This scenery reaches from North of the Finger Lakes to South of Williamsport, PA, where the Mifflin scenery picks up.

Mifflin is the site of some of the best ridge soaring in the Eastern United states and the site of many national records. The ridges of the Appalachian mountains reach from Northern Pennsylvania all the way down into northern Alabama. This scenery reaches from northern Pennsylvania south just below Washington, D.C. and encompasses some of the Shenandoah valley. It was inspired by the terragen Mifflin scenery that is popular for Condor. I wanted a photorealistic version.

Thanks for trying out the scenery!

There are no airports in the airports folder. The scenery objects are in the objects folder and textures folder. The airport is detailed at Harris Hill only. Scattered around the scenery are windmills from the windmill farms near Prattsburgh and Cohocton. Start at Dansville and fly east at heading of about 110 degrees to 42 31' 40", 77 29' 41" which is in the middle of the wind farm. You should see them a few miles out before you get there.

There is also a wind farm at 41 46' 57", 76 53' 54". Fly from Harris Hill south about 25nm to see it.
