Water FIX – SAN Diego County, California, USA Scenery for MSFS 2020

Water FIX – SAN Diego County, California, USA for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020
Water FIX – SAN Diego County, California, USA for MSFS 2020

With recent changes to World Update 6 (and perhaps global warming leading to rise in sea levels), water levels have seemingly risen throughout the game, leaving many previously visible features now underwater. (SU5 did exhibit some of the same issues, but not to the extent seen in World Update 6.). This mod applies exclusion polygons to areas covered in water, in order to uncover them.

I initially created this for my own use, but thought I’d share for those who care.

This mod fixes the following issues to the default scenery located in San Diego County, California, USA:
