Hi there,I've been using Shez's great KCLE scenery for years now and I was wondering if anyone had purchased BluePrint's KCLE yet?Here's a direct link: http://www.blueprintsimulations.com/BluePrint_KCLE.htmCheers,Petehttp://members.aol.com/pzsoulman/myhomepage/logo.gifGIGABYTE Light 3D Galaxy II Liquid CoolingENERMAX Galaxy EGA850EWL ATX 850W Power SupplyNVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel MoboCore 2 Duo E6700 1066MHz FSB 4M shared L2 Cache LGA 775CORSAIR XMS2 2GB SDRAM DDR2 800GeForce 8800GTX 768MB 384-bit GDDR3 PCI ExpressSBlaster X-Fi XtremeMusic 7.12 x Western Digital Raptor 150GB 10000 RPM 16MB Cache SATA Raid01 Seagate Barracuda 320GB 7200RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/sWinXP Home SP2CH Yoke/Pedals

Pete:From the screeshots it doesn't look like its worth migrating from Shez's free scenery for this one. I see absolutely nothing visually that would make me purchase this scenery and I most certainly would have since it is a Continental Hub Airport.The airport taxiway and ramp textures look like the default FS9 ones and the terminal buildings look hand drawn. Probably would have made a nice freeware upade to Shez's scenery if there were some new terminal buildings at KCLE, but there really is nothing new going on at KCLE right now.I guess for $13.00 you get some custom textures surrounding the airport...but from the screenshots they don't look very good at all, blurry and probably will contrast with the surrounding area.Just my observation from their screenshots...

It's not better than Shez's work (with the exception being framerates) but great if you have FSX. This is the future of scenery development in the FSX world. Buildings built on top of default airport ground scenery...

Thanks Guys,I was afraid that my first impression by the screenshots would get confirmed. I have a hefty system running FS9 so frames is not a problem with Shez's scenery (which I admire anyways).I guess I'll download their KRDU freeware to see what their stuff looks like.Cheers,Petehttp://members.aol.com/pzsoulman/myhomepage/logo.gifGIGABYTE Light 3D Galaxy II Liquid CoolingENERMAX Galaxy EGA850EWL ATX 850W Power SupplyNVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel MoboCore 2 Duo E6700 1066MHz FSB 4M shared L2 Cache LGA 775CORSAIR XMS2 2GB SDRAM DDR2 800GeForce 8800GTX 768MB 384-bit GDDR3 PCI ExpressSBlaster X-Fi XtremeMusic 7.12 x Western Digital Raptor 150GB 10000 RPM 16MB Cache SATA Raid01 Seagate Barracuda 320GB 7200RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/sWinXP Home SP2CH Yoke/Pedals

I was flying out of my own KCLE yesterday and realised that it may be heavy on the fps because of the trees. I guess that might be the case with many of my sceneries. Try and remove them if you can live without them and see if fps improves. I usually place many trees because it just gives a great realistic look to an airport. Just search the scenery directory for any files named *trees*.bgl and move or delete them.Shez

Shez,on my old system (AMD3500, 128MB Video, 1GB Ram) it did make a positive difference after removing the trees.bgl. If I remember correctly you had it in your readme to improve performance. My new system handles it without any problems and without removing any 'optional' bgl's.Cheers,Petehttp://members.aol.com/pzsoulman/myhomepage/logo.gifGIGABYTE Light 3D Galaxy II Liquid CoolingENERMAX Galaxy EGA850EWL ATX 850W Power SupplyNVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel MoboCore 2 Duo E6700 1066MHz FSB 4M shared L2 Cache LGA 775CORSAIR XMS2 2GB SDRAM DDR2 800GeForce 8800GTX 768MB 384-bit GDDR3 PCI ExpressSBlaster X-Fi XtremeMusic 7.12 x Western Digital Raptor 150GB 10000 RPM 16MB Cache SATA Raid01 Seagate Barracuda 320GB 7200RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/sWinXP Home SP2CH Yoke/Pedals
