The scenery includes hundreds of telescopes around the world.
The scenery especially focuses on the new generation of giants (more than 30m), which are under construction, and will start operation in 2024. These giants are included in the scenery.
Check the documentation for more detailed description and historical information about these telescopes.
This project required a hard work. A few sceneries use google maps photogrammetry import but most of the work consists of building i handcrafted using Sketchup & Blender.

Delete all your previous folder versions of this package.
I recommend you to use MSFS Addonlinker instead of installing the folders directly in your community folder.
You can activate, with MSFS_AddonLinker, whichever area you want to fly, just make sure you always activate the Common Libraries.
Activating only relevant areas for your flight is better for game performance.

Required libraries :
Download and install the “Dave’s 3D People Library” in your community folder.
Download and install the "Windy Things Library" in your community folder.
Download and install the “Dave’s 3D Animals Library” in your community folder.
The scenery may conflict (duplicate buildings) with sceneries that place building in the same places.This is especially the case with "We Love VFR" that automatically places antennas, instead of the radiotelescope dishes.
Two work-around are possible :
1. you can either delete SatDishes.bgl file from “We Love VFR” folders.
2. or you can arrange the priority of the "Giant Telescope" folders, as explained in provided documentation.
