I normaly don't do this, but this scenery is absolutely amazing! No impact on the frames on my system, runs smoth as silk even with lots of AI and complex Addon planes. Can't believe it, always dreamed of a decent O'Hare. I still hate this insane activation system so, but as it worked flawles with the Zurich scenery I'll give it another try.Toby

I agree the activation system sucks(like cloud 9) which takes away for proberly a great piece of scenery.Bill M

Looks like there's some problems with it already on their forum.

Finally able to get rid of Simflyers. How a rather bland scenery had such a major framerate hit I'll never know.Anyone able to comment on FPS for this scenery vs. Simflyers?

It definitely looks stunning doesn't it. Hats off to them. Everyone's getting on the high fidelity stuff now and it's not just FlyTampa who are offering this. Good to see. And two versions as well. I'll be buying this over the weekend.

Easy on frames, great looking all around. I can enjoy some more decent domestic flights as well as transatlantic routes.To think about: which one would end up selling more version for FS9 or FS10???Thanks for the heads up.PatAMD Opteron DC 185 @ 3GHz, Zalman7700Cu cooler, Corsair XMS 2GB DDR, 7800GS-OC, Asus A8V MoBo, RaptorHDD, TrackIR4, CH FSYoke+TQ+peds, Eclipse RED KB, WinXP-sp2

>To think about: which one would end up selling more version>for FS9 or FS10???We can't say precisely, because one purchase will get you both versions: if you buy the FS9 version, the moment you install the FSX one, it will already fully registered, and so the opposite.We can only make a rough guess by looking at the downloads.For Zurich, that was sold in the same dual version way, we initially had a slightly higher download count for the FS9 version but, after Christmas (maybe Santa brought lots of new PCs ?), we noticed an increase of the FSX version.However, download counts do not necessarily translate into actual sales in the same way in the two sims.But that doesn't really matter, considering how the product is sold. For us, it's just a single sale, regardless of the sim in which the scenery is used..

Downloaded it so I can run the trial. Looks fantastic. Frame rates were great. Sure to be a winner!Now if we could only get a YSSY of his mould!

Just an idea, but can you perhaps include some version numbers in the installer names.Right now I see setup_addonmanager.exe for example. Which version is that? Same with the main installer for the scenery. A version number would be nice. Or perhaps put a note on your site that says when exactly the installers were changed.

>Just an idea, but can you perhaps include some version>numbers in the installer names.It might look a good idea on principle but, as all things, is still subjected to human error and it's not always reliable.For example, yesterday night, we had the FSX installer that was initially fine, but after a couple of hours became corrupted on the server, so we had to upload it again, without changing anything. Still not sure how this could happened, probably the server overloaded because of the release.If we had to do it right, we should include a text file with MD5 for at least the installer, but I'm not sure how many users have an MD5 checker already installed and ready to use. It's a known practice for Linux distributions, but not so common for Windows users.One reliable indication of at least *when* the file was changed, is to browse the download folder ( http://www.fsdreamteam.com/download/ ) and have a look at the files time/dates. That will tell exactly when the installer was uploaded on the server, and it can act like a "version number"

>Now if we could only get a YSSY of his mould!You read my mind! I just thought about that YSSY scenery just released by CLS, where I thought "how can any payware developer release such a bland scenery in 2008?".FsDreamteam did a superb job for Zurich (and there I can tell, it's one of my home airports), and this one looks great, too. From what I've seen so far the FSDT products bring me as much pleasure as the ones from FlyTampa and sim-wings, so let's hope there's more to come. There are some major airline hubs in the world that aren't done yet respectively are outdated. Chicago ORD was one of them, and who knows, maybe next thing they tackle is JFK, DFW, PEK, HKG, BKK, SIN, JNB, or indeed SYD. Let's wait and see.One thing the FSDT team will have to get used to is the hordes of people sending them their pleads and wishes for their local airport - just like the FlyTampa forum has become a point where to deposit scenery wishes. But in the end, that's a compliment, isn't it?Thus: keep up the good work!

Umberto,First off, ORD looks great, had no problems with the install file(s) this AM. Took me all of 1 minute to decide to purchase. And very cool that it's dual-sim, one price, I installed on both, equeally impressive. One comment...maybe I read it wrong, but on the download page it isn't clear that you *must* have the download manager(s) too. I initially installed without and all the terminal buildings were missing, installed the DLM, all's well.>>If we had to do it right, we should include a text file with MD5 for at least the installer...<

The files installed are exactly the same, the only difference is the scenery installer also have the scenery. The reason for having a stand-alone Addon Manager is just that we can keep users updated for that program without forcing to re-download the whole scenery again.I don't know why you didn't had the buildings on the initial run with the scenery installer (in FSX or FS9 ? ) but I assure you we install exactly the same files in the scenery and in the stand-alone AM, except the actual scenery, of course.

Wow, The first scenery for Ohare that I can remember being excited about was when Chris Gilbert released KORD for FS98. I have been following this sceneries progress and was going to purchase it no matter what. I am so pleased that it runs well on my older system. Great Job FS Dream Team... :-coolCheers,Scott

Hi -Just purchased the FS9 KORD after reviewing the trail version - a fine bit of work!However I do hope someone will tweak the afcad a bit as there are several problems.Examples:I just watched an AA jet taxi to a parking spot near what appears to be a new tower construction site and park on top of a large group of static service trucks (tractors).I also watched an incoming Delta flight get near it's terminal area only to be greeting by aircraft which were taxiing out. It became what we call here in Texas "a Mexican standoff" - no one would give way to the other so everyone just timed out.I love the overall effect of the airport and sure hope someone will do some serious revamping of the afcad to improve it.

According to threads on the FSDT support forum, the developers are tweaking the AFCAD file.I'll need to try KORD>VHHX one of these days.PatAMD Opteron DC 185 @ 3GHz, Zalman7700Cu cooler, Corsair XMS 2GB DDR, 7800GS-OC, Asus A8V MoBo, RaptorHDD, TrackIR4, CH FSYoke+TQ+peds, Eclipse RED KB, WinXP-sp2

The Mexican standoff is more often than not a limitation of FS.
