Well this was initially an AFCAD update with a photoreal background (borne out of frustration of my VATSIM Chicago Center controlling where half the pilots had old scenery). I then decided to align all the taxiways to the photoreal so it looks a lot better now. I also put in all the gates and updated the layout to the current with the new cargo to NE.

Here is the link if anyone wants the Beta. I am still working on the cargo buildings.

Shez,

Your KORD AFCAD is amazing! Thanks for your hard work. Can't wait to see the final product.

Regards,

Dave

Short answer:  You'll have to run this by itself as both use an AFCAD and different textures for the termimals and other buildings. 

Both of these airports are scenery. Scenery often contains objects, polygons, textures to cover the polys, and an AFCAD which handles ground type(s), ramp areas, taxiways, runways, Locailizer and Glideslope information and sometimes Navaids adjacent to and/or surrounding the airport (note that instead of an AFCAD some scenery have the these items including runways actually built in as objects though they don't believe this is true in either case here). Plus two different sceneries will have different exclusion areas, and the higher priority scenery would certainly affect the other if both were added/activated. It's a big no-no.

ALL:  Sorry I've been away, I've been busy testing different flight sim products and have spent very little time in the forums and didn't see the posts above regarding what I posted earlier.

I may attempt to try and merge the FSDT into this however I will have to reengineer the FSDT as it has old photoreal elements.

I'm confused as to how to install this. It has a scenery and texture folder inside the KORD folder and it also has a scenery and texture folder outside of the KORD folder.

It's really sad that @virtuali has pretty much abandoned the product only to continue other airports while leaving their old ones outdated. At least they shouldn't promise if they won't deliver.

All you folks that complain about scenery need to do what I did, get a copy of ADE and fix it yourself. :smile:

My mistake. I included the same scenery and texture folder twice. I have corrected it in the link. For you, just delete the sub-directory KORD and use the scenery and texture folder at the higher level folder. Basically duplicated.

If anyone would be kind enough to post a couple of shots from Shez' scenery, I'd be grateful.

Thanks.

ORD has changed so much since the FSDT release I'd think it's beyond what you can fix in an AFCAD.
