This summer on Landscapes Unlimited: The Virtual Swiss Alps
This morning I completely changed the environment of the sim. When you arrive there, you will be on top of a mountainous area, in between some of the highest peaks of the Swiss Alps and the lower areas to the North.
The environment resembles the Jungfrau-Aletsch region, which is, like Yosemite, on the Unesco World Heritage list. The area is very impressive, for example because of the incredible height differences, the deadly, steep slopes of the Eiger, the waterfalls near Wengen, the Jungfrau with its extreme climate on the northern fringes of the Alps, and the long Aletsch glacier that flows southward, just on the other side of the highest peaks.
Not everything that makes this area special can be modeled in a couple of mega prims, but the sim surround should give you a small impression. You can visit the Virtual Swiss Alps here
