Toufic you are really enjoying X plane 10. You must be having a monster of a system to run the tall buildings as that is where the fps drops at least for me if I run W2XP based New York buildings . That jumbo looks nice too.

I converted that scenery several months ago and got floating buildings galore. Did you ground them, or leave it as is?

surely i enjoy XPX 64 bit but i wont call my pc a monster though, maybe a baby monster lol...i think Fly Tampa's sceneries are mostly optimized textures this is why the FPS is generally good in their sceneries.

 

Your shots are always incredible, I only wish they were bigger :P .

Thanks all :) and thanks for your Tip i will try to make them bigger if possible :) you are right the details can look nicer if bigger :)

Please make sure you untick runway follow terrain contour in settings, which will fix many floating buildings especially around the runway, however you are right some will remain floating. I did not ground them but there is a way to do them via AC3D program. Please check this tutorial it helps a lot in fixing floating objects in XP10

Thanks. I considered it a while ago, but was essentially too lazy at the time. :-)

Hmm I think you should also try US North East OSM data from simheaven made by world2Xplane. The textures are not good but you shall see the buildings. Just give it a try and see the performance of your system.

 

Get the latest world models.

thanks World 2 x PLane sceneries are very nice but i like it with photo scenery from Sim heaven might give a try for a specific US city but the download of photo scenery from sim heaven is bit slow but a big thank you to Sim heaven and World 2 X plane for their contribution to X plane 10. I love Innsbruck area (Austrian scenery in world 2 x plane + photo scenery + freeware airport from X plane forums... so immersive and the best part for free!

Yes the download is slow and it also often breaks in between , happened too many times and  after that  I just stopped downloading Photo sceneries from there.

 

 Well NY / Manhattan buildings textures in W2XP is just simple may not even like it and do not reflect like the one is FSX NY hmm that pay ware you are using.
