I'm sorry, but unfortunately I am quite sure that having that would make for a giganteus download, as those areas would have to be one by one degree in size (due to how the terrain in FlightGear is stored and used). :(

At the other hand getting new terrain is not all too much work. :wink: For more see Howto:Install scenery on the wiki.

If you just enable TerraSync, you'll get the scenery for whatever country you fly to. That's a whole lot more flexible than forcing people to fly between KSFO and EGKK, does not add to the base package size and ensures that you always get the latest scenery.
