Very nice pictures!. They're almost thousands of corners in this scenery you could take pictures from!. The most real scenery I ever seen!. Time to enjoy, and also Chicago Meigs!

Cheers, Ed

Night and twilight please!

How do the PAPI lights look ?

Looks nice. But from picture#3, it appears mountains do not cast shadows in FS2? I only flew FS2 around NYC which is flat so never noticed this terrain shadow thing.

I'm definitely having to go and get this...wow!

Thanks for the pics!

I picked up both LOWI and Meigs.  Meigs (the airport and actual downtown is very nice, BUT, Orbx has used a very low quality sat zl factor for the surrounding suburbs.  Totally wipes out the immersion factor, in my opinion, and I'd pass and get LOWI, if it is important to you, to see visual crispness (as you can get yourself with Ortho4XP with zl17 and up!) on your final approach to the downtown core.  If Orbx plans to hide the blurry low grade ortho with lots of 3D placements...perhaps, but as it stands now...I would not recommend the purchase just for the fact that the Great Chicago Area ortho,is quite frankly not much clearer than the default low-grade fill ortho for IPAC's world at present. It's a cut above, and nothing else.  My Ortho4XP generated at zl17 is like a razor-blade clear, than the Orbx ortho...and that is sad, quite disappointing.

Very nice. Thanks for posting these... #3 answers a question I had about this scenery.

I'm holding out for the Steam edition, to see if it's a truly painless experience!
