To be compatible with X-Plane 11.10+ and the changes of the library system, there are small updates available for the VFR-Landmarks and the Forests sceneries.
You don’t need to download all the stuff, just the update files. After downloading, extract the update to the scenery folder, run the script which copies referenced files outside the scenery (which I’m not allowed to publish) into the scenery, that’s it! There is a script for Windows and a script for Linux (thanks to Daniel).
For more information, please refer to the included ReadMe file.
Update for simHeaven_VFR-Landmarks (4 MB, 4 more castles):
Update for simHeaven_Forests_xxx (3 kB):
This scenery replaces the forests of XP11 with forests, orchards, vineyards, tree lines and trees derived from OSM data. For the objects, original forests and trees of XP11 are used, so there is no additional library necessary.
Best for use of photo sceneries, but even with standard scenery this could be a win, try out and see. Original forests of XP11 are excluded for all covered tiles, but autogen trees in cities still remain visible.
No additional library needed, should be compatible with XP10 too.

Introducing the new ‘
w2xp_Europe_objects VFR-Landmarks’ which is meant for XP11 users (and XP10 too) with standard scenery or HD Mesh Scenery v3 installed to improve the look of XP with visual objects like chimneys, radio masts and communication towers, churches, mosques, wind turbines, solar panel fields, flags, lighthouses, windmills, cranes, water towers, tanks, observation towers, campaniles, cooling towers, piers and boats.
It doesn’t influence performance, files installed are only 117 MB, 43 MB to download. It uses a library, so changing or adding objects is fast and easy. Refer to the ReadMe if you want to do so. Download at http://simheaven.com/?page_id=14813
