Abacus has just released a clever utility for creating scenery using existing FSX library objects (and there are many to be discovered). It’s called Scenery Shortcut, and it is being provided as a free download! I’m not much of a scenery person, but I can certainly see the value behind using this utility to populate areas in the sim that are a bit scarce.
Personally, I wouldn’t mind seeing the hot air balloon "flying" near my favorite flying locations, and with this utility, I could make that happen within minutes! The product page gives a great tutorial on exactly how to perform this, and also shows some working examples created by the program’s creator, Peter Jacobson. Great work Peter & Abacus!
