Get rid of the grid and either use a black background so the yellow lines are more easily seen or change that layer's color to black.

 

The image is rather small. Attempting to compare your drawing to the copy I have is going to be a bit of a problem.

 

You have a title block and border right?

Really? A 98? Well that is certainly good news. Congrats.

 

Answering any questions on your next project is going to cost you twice as much as it did for the Olsen Village project. You're gonna need a bigger wallet! LOL Just kidding.

Hello: I am just starting the Oleson Village Drawing and I am stuck right at the beginning trying to set the LTSCALE. Can anyone tell me how to calculate this as I have been using the reference in the text on page 374 (AutoCAD 2010) and my calculations I am sure is out to lunch. I have tried the formula Acad_scale=acad_plot/acad_size. For the sheet size of 24"X36" I get a plot area of 21.5"X33.5" (using the example in the book on page 375 as a reference) and a Drawing area of 15"X18" then when I try to determing the plot scale I get 15/10000000=0.0000015 I am sure this is wrong. The limits for the drawing are 0,0 and 10000000,10000000. So I am struck and do not know what to do. Could someone please direct me to the correct ltscale. Thank you!

I am not familiar with this project, although I would set ltscale to 1.

 

I second that...

With this project ltscale will need to be set at 50. Remember that Penn Foster does a few things different. This project will be plotted on 17.5x 11 sheets.

I am working on the Oleson Village assignment and I am trying to create the tree block. I have my units set to Decimal to reflect 0.00 and the angle to Surveyor's units. I am using a ltscale of 50. How do I create the tree with extents of 15 feet in diameter. I have tried to draw a circle with a radius of 15 feet. When I try to do this autocad will not except my radius. Do I have to reset my units to architectural to draw my tree block and then reset them back to surveyor's afterward. Also I have been trying to resize the point that is to be placed inside of the tree circle. I have tried using the pdsize command and used values of 10, 100, 1000, 10000, and 100000 and the point still remains too small. I have tried using the pdmode command and tried setting the point size from 5%, to 10%, 25%, 100%, 1000%, 10000% and 100000% and the point still remains too small.

Can you please tell me what I am doing wrong.

What values were you entering for the PDMODE? It is a variable that sets the appearance of the point. Try putting in 3 or 4 and see what that looks like.
