Winter is coming… yep, I’m a fan of Game of Thrones… FlyAgi did deep winter textures for the brandnew X-Europe 5.2 changing buildings via SAM to winter textures.

X-AMERICA
X-AMERICA covers North, Central and South America! There is a beta version having houses in European style. I will rework layer 4-scenery and change red roof houses to gray roof, change building for central and south America, but actually I am still looking for support doing the houses in American style, which is different from European houses.
If you could help with doing objects in different sizes, please let me know. I intend to use these objects even for Asia and Australia which will follow after America.

Amongst other things, we added wastewater plants to the scenery, that are easy to spot from air, it looks like this:
