OK ... I had it all wrong. Those are speed trees with 3D animated "on" that I'm seeing in the MP4 I made (link at the bottom of the scenery page). The others are the Terra Flora.  So there is no mystery. Too bad the Terra Flora trees don't move.  Well, I like the Speed Trees. The movement is great down on the water (float trips, etc).

Norm, before you install, you will have "vegetation.bgl" in the Scenery/Global/Scenery. Once you install TF, that changes to "vegetation.bgl.off" and a new one appears "vegetation_TF.bgl".  That is happening for me just fine.  Also the Scenery Library is activated. Somehow, though, it is not affecting the trees. For me, I don't think it is installing.

One major reason I have for really trying to get this to work is TWC II (coming soon). I've got the basics for a "float trip" down the river with 9 places to visit and pull out. Can you imagine a float trip on that beautiful river, with all that Rod has done, and have the water moving and the trees on the bank moving?  That will be something. 

Off subject: If anybody sees a boat that has a 5 hp motor or no motor but moves, I'm interested.  We need something to "float" in.

Did you see that "DOS Box" error that I had posted when you installed. I'm wondering if this thing doesn't work in 4.3.

Has anybody got this working in P3D V4.3?   If you do, in the drop down table under your sim's "Add-ons" ... does it show there?  If anyone can get a pic of that it would be appreciated.

At the bottom of the Scenery page, I put a little table labeled Terra Flora Trees, I'm putting my documentation for this problem there. There is an MP4 of what it looked like when it was working under 4.2. Now in 4.3, not only will it not install, there are no trees moving anywhere. (I test this by being a little way AWAY from an RTMM scenery (since those are static trees), and setting the weather on "Severe Thunderstorm" ... that gives an 18 knot wind to blow the trees around.

Thanks a bunch Jeff. That should be enough clues for them to figure it out.  I've git it all posted on their P3D V4 forum ...now if  I could just  hear from them.

OK...thank you. That pretty much confirms everything. Appreciated.

OK, it NOT showing up in the menu tells me it just isn't getting installed, so something is going wrong in that process (perhaps the error that I earlier in the thread). Attached here is what I'm seeing in my Scenery Library ... does yours show this?

Great Jeff. I'm wondering should TF show up under "Add-ons" on the V4 top menu?  I see it in the Scenery library, at the top and grayed out, but checked active. The only out of ordinary thing I see is this during the install:

Thanks Brad, I've had a request for help over there for 3 days ... nothing coming back. I'm pretty sure it is ok in 4.3 (Norm uses it). What was strange was I saw it working one time, then it quit. Can't get it back no matter what I do. :-)

Replying to myself. I've uninstalled the product and all of the folders. I then re-installed everything and let the program pick the folder where things go, so it is set up exactly as TF should be. My mesh is at 5, Animated 3D is "off" and the two vegetation files in scenery/global/scenery are what they should be. (vegetation.bgl.off and vegetation_TF.bgl). Still, I am only getting the default trees. Not sure what else to try. Ideas?

2 evenings ago, I added Terra Flora ... the result was amazing, moving trees! And I think better tree "objects" than in the default. But yesterday I turned on my sim (P3D V4.3) and Terra Flora was not "there." The default objects were showing. 

I know that the 3D animation has to be turned off.
In Scenery/Global/Scenery the vegitation.off and vegitation_TF.bgl are showing as they should.

Wonder if anybody else has had a problem. It has to be a setting "here" because I did see it work once.

I agree. This was always the missing link for us. We tried it other times and it didn't "take." I think the way Norm and Henry set this up is the key. It is a "simplified" VA that is taylored to bush flying where there are fewer strict flying rules and schedules. Then add the effort they put into it and it becomes a winning combination. Big hat tip and thank you to Norm and Henry. MFC is here to stay.
