Working on better photo scenery for all 14 summits taller than 8000 meters. Exists Everest photoscenery is not blended into standard FSX/P3D scenery and seam is clearly visible. With proper blending mask seam is not visible.

I am looking forward to seeing how Everest will be depicted in the new Flight Simulator from Microsoft.
