Sim Surround Landscapes (Full sim surrounds) Version 6.0

Details

These off-sim landscapes are made of high quality sculpted mega prims with state of the art baked textures. They have a couple of properties that make them better than others:

INNOVATIONS
----------------
- All surface textures have normal maps. These normal maps dramatically increase the details seen on the landscape surface, especially when your sun has a low altitude (i.e. sunrise, sunset). NOTE: normal maps can only be seen when Advanced Lighting is enabled!
- With the HUD you can change seasons. All four seasons can be chosen! (No seasons available on Tropical Paradise)
- All tree textures have normal maps as well, which makes them appear to have a 3D shape, like real trees do. Even when being lit from behind the trees appear to have a realistic shape
- Some landscapes have waterfalls. These are animated in such a way that lag is as low as possible, using frames instead of smooth animation. The waterfall textures also have normal maps, which makes the water appear as 3D
- The trees further away from the sim are "billboards", which means they only have one side exactly facing the sim. By using this technique, one single mega prim can have as many as 42 trees. Trees closer to the sim have four sides so they look better when you move around on your sim or cam around
- Normally mega prim landscapes blank out the world map. All version 6 landscapes do NOT do that anymore. Your sim terrain will always stay visible on the world map!

OTHER PROPERTIES
----------------------
- You can remove all unnecessary scripts after deploy or reset them in case of problems (Advanced Menu, brought up by touching the landscape for 5 seconds)
- These landscapes do not obstruct any kind of sit animations
- They are copyable: keep copies in your inventory and you can't lose them (but also can't give them back for a refund... get the demos first!)
- Matching terrain textures for all seasons are included
- Versions with and without trees are included. Don't want the trees? Use the [NO TREES] version, it will save land impact
- Besides switching between seasons, the HUD lets you change other landscape properties as well, like glow, brightness, tree type etc.

LAND IMPACT
---------------
Andaman Islands: 84 with trees (54 without)
Gorges du Verdon: 96 (36)
Highland Coast: 144 (80)
Patagonia: 164 (96)
Porto Coast: 96 (36)
Sweetwater Valley: 164 (44)
The Hebrides: 96 (36)
Tropical Paradise: 144 (80)

WHERE TO USE THEM
------------------------
- You can use these surrounds on any island that does not share a full side with another region. It is not a problem if your region touches other regions at the corners
- These landscapes are meant for use at sim ground level: they are not particularly suitable for use in the sky
- They are perfect for both homesteads and full sims

IMPORTANT
-------------
Before using these landscapes, set your DRAW DISTANCE to at least 250m and disable LIMIT SELECT DISTANCE in the Advanced menu of your viewer.

These make your sim look bigger with a highly realistic texture. Highly customizable too - with many terrain & theme options. All 4 seasons on your sim now too! I do not regret this purchase, spot on.

Breathtaking!

I spent a few hours checking out different demos for sim surround on the marketplace and when I found this one my jaw dropped. It surpasses the scores of other sellers' surrounds by a landslide! (pun intended) Really though, take the time to try the demo, it's easy to use and once you see the quality and the endless selections in the HUD for terrain, etc... you'll be blown away. My island just got WAY prettier!
