Addition for the IPACS Florida DLC by TomSimMuc, ZoSoChile, ussiowa, Rodeo, Kenventions and Jetjockey10

Installation:

  1. In case you installed the IPACS Florida you have to rename one interfering tile
    C:\Users\\Documents\Aerofly FS 2\n …\Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator\scenery\places\usa\fl\cultivation\fl_46c0_92c0_01.toc to fl_46c0_92c0_01.off

    It is recommended to opt out from the beta channel if not urgently needed. This will prevent a non intended replacement of the suppressed tile.

  2. Unzip the downloaded file and only copy the contained addons folder to C:\Users\YOURNAME\Documents\Aerofly FS 2\ The folder name “Documents” will appear localized to the installed language. This will install the new scenery into the addon folder. Also orthos (ground pictures) and the houses, which have been suppressed by renaming the toc file will be installed.
  3. Set all Graphic Quality Settings to ULTRA (exept "shadows" set to your liking)


There is a tour guide in the folder, which will help you to find the most important hotspots of the scenery!


When flying in the South Florida DLC in the Miami area you may have noticed the rather large bright green area that looks a lot like some crop being cultivated. These green fields are, in fact, a series of interconnected water cooling canals for the nearby nuclear power plant at the edge of Biscayne Bay.


Rather than use the standard short, large diameter cooling towers that you often see associated with a nuclear power generating station, Florida Power and Light chose to use these 10 square miles of connected canals to cool the hot water from the steam generating units.

The canal area is five miles long and 2 miles wide and is also the protected home for a large and growing family of American Crocodiles. This is 6,000 acres of circulating cooling water that is returned for reuse at the proper temperature.


The power generating station site sits on 3,300 acres of what is typically called wasteland. Built in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Turkey Point houses 3 active units - two 802 MW Westinghouse pressurized- water nuclear reactors and one 1,150 MW combined-cycle gas-fired unit.

Turkey Point serves the entire southern portion of Florida. With a combined operational capacity of 2,754 MW, the site is the third largest generating station in Florida and the sixth largest power plant in the United States. Turkey Point is the only Nuclear Generating Station in the state of Florida.


A few miles up the coast you will find another basically overlooked park and marina area. Some basic research revealed this is the Dade County Bayfront Park and Marina that has been in continuous operation for the last 80 years.
