2 quick questions (hopefully!)

So, just wondering if there are plans to add palm trees to the sim or does anyone know of any libraries/add-ons that are available? Also, Is there a simple quick way to adjust the LOD of multiple(same) objects or is it a one at a time process…thanks for any help!

I have seen Palm trees in the Caribbean using default scenery.

e.g. in Blue Lagoon (North Bimini) . Just to the right of centre.

And here, along the beach at Bahama Bay in Exuma.

Hello @dvlourie ,
Please make your title more explicit, as it may be useful to other users.

You can use the a scenery object called Tree_Palm01 or a polygon vegetation with the biome override option if needed called "Palm_Tree"

For the LODs, everything is explained here. (Short answer : you can set the lod value in your object xml and no matter how many times this object will appear on the scene the lod values in the xml will be used).
