I had the toronto thing and I'm still trying to get rid of it. It killed my frame rates, like really killed them. But, hey, that's me, not them. It was very nice, but it was like a slideshot. billg

I just bought this scenery and I must say it's awesome. :-eek It's better than their (Imagine's) KDEN scenery as far as framerates go. Guys this is another top notch scenery package much like Simflyer's offerings without the framerate hassles.Whoever wanted KDTW you now have it in all it's glory!!! :-jumpy

I got it too. It's really nice. Decent on the frames and looks really good. I don't see any pink in the scenery itself, might be the photos.Lee

Got it on Sat. Living seven miles from KDTW, I have to say it is very well done. The only issues I found are: 1)no VOR on airport 2)runways and markings are way to light. Need to be much darker. I would say this is worth the money. Nice to see a good KDTW addonJoe

I will be getting this. I am a US Airport Scenery junkie. I only fly to Airports I have scenery for. Pay or Free makes no difference to me as long as it is well done (Shehryar Ansari) for example.While I am running on here anybody using the KIND lite scenery? I wonder how this is without the Photo textures.Thanks

I also have the KIND secenery, "lite" version. It is quite "heavy" on the framerates. Also, you cannot taxi around the airport with "detect crashes" enabled as you will encounter constant crashes. Maker of the scenery says it is due to the pavement lines being seen as buildings or some such thing. Says a fix is on the way. Not real happy with this one. Hope some fixes are forthcoming.Joe

I have the KIND scenery as well. I actually think it's very good and great on framerates considering you know how to adjust the scenery using the tool provided. I don't have all the useless options enabled like moving cars and light poles. I have the original version, I removed all the ugly photo scenery. KIND is a great add-on just like KDTW. I prefer the standard version over the lite version due to the fact that I get all the cool extra buildings. The building crash problem is an issue with this package that's why I only use the FEDEX terminal when flying to this airport. Cargo flights are the only way to go at this point seeing the closer you get to the main terminals, the more likely a building crash is going to occur... :-roll

I have Fly Tampa Miami and Imagine Sim DEN.DEN, is by far, surpassed my standards. Animated jetways. The designers completely remodeled the airport IMO. The Fly'Tampa is among one of my favorites also. Does not include the animations, but does have very high visual details.I would reccomend DEN if you have the pc power, but MIA is a great choice also. Cant go one with eathier of the two..:-wave

I just purchased the KDTW scenery and it looks ok except all my runways and taxiways are pink as others have posted.I just e-mailed IMAGINE SIM and asked them about a solution.I tried different seasons thinking the winter textures were the cause, but even in summer they are still pink.My feeling is that it is worth the 20US but not near the workmanship and quality of the FlyTampa products.I would put at the same level as my SimFlyers with better FPS.Andy

This pink stuff is wierd. There are airports specially in Texas (like DFW) that display distinct pigment in the concrete they use - usually of the brownish type. But Detroit is not one of them.Michael J.WinXP-Home SP2,AMD64 3500+,Abit AV8,Radeon X800Pro,36GB Raptor,1GB PC3200,Audigy 2
