Used to live there... Oh how I long to see that area as "detailed" with the typical snow and cold I remember as a kid...Ah, yes... Minneapolis, good choice.

So.... Toronto (CYYZ)? :( Actually it would also be nice to see some detailed smaller general aviation airports in the next FS, perhaps some of those around Seattle like Arlington, Port Angeles etc.

It's great to hear Minneapolis is going to get done, that's where I'm from... I guess Crystol Muni and St. Paul airport are a long shot. A few well known names around here fly out of those airports (well Brian is a moderator over at Flightsim.com and Dillon freqents allot over here to name just two)... ;-)

Please no more high-detailed airports, unless you give the option for people with lower-end systems to be able to disable them for 'default-type' airports. I don't want to have to stop flying to any more airports in the new FS because of poor frame rates. The high-detail airports are an idea which is ahead of what current hardware limitations allow if you're talking about adding a realistic level of AI traffic, which is what more and more users are now doing. You can't just start throwing in detailed pretty airport sceneries if it's just going to mean bad framerates and stutters. I'd much rather have the means to be able to have a decent amount of AI traffic taxiing about my airport than the detailed scenery if the compromise has to be made, which IMO unless you have an absolute monster of a system, it does...

Most modern systems do handle the detailed airport just fine! It is combination of detailed airport, a lot of clouds and hundreds of airplanes at these airports that bring the systems to their knees. But I like to have the choice to reduce traffic and not sacrifice detailed airport (where as to you detailed airports don't seem important)Please note that most of the new improvements in each version of FS is possible due to advances to hardware. To suggest improvements should not be made, so you don't have to upgrade your hardware is short sighted. If they listened to comments like yours, we would still be viewing two buildings in Chicago and be flying stick figure airplanes of FS3!!! Ironically MS has always accomodated people with lower end systems by putting performance sliders in FS! If you don't want to or can not upgrade your system, you have few choices: 1)keep your scenery complexity low. 2)keep your AI Traffic low 3)Stay with FS9, etc.. But please don't suggest that rest of us shouldn't be able to enjoy better scenery, because you don't want to make those choices.

>If they listened to comments like yours, we would still be viewing>two buildings in Chicago and be flying stick figure airplanes of>FS3!!!Everyone has his own priorities. Currently, I would be happier with improvements in flight dynamics and other things than improvements in scenery. But don't worry, 99% of user base agrees with you, so my opinions don't pose a threat. :)>But please don't suggest that rest of>us shouldn't be able to enjoy better scenery, because you>don't want to make those choices.I never said anything like that. Please read the original post I replied to:"Please no more high-detailed airports, unless you give the option for people with lower-end systems to be able to disable them for 'default-type' airports."Marco

I'm sure my local airports here in NY/NJ will be highly detailed.

By all means have the new high detail airport sceneries for those that want them.

There is already a way to do that! When you reduce scenery complexity, the airports lose a lot of their detail such as jet ways etc!
