I sure hope your right about the PMDG! As for the LDS 767, I think the problem is traffic rather than the dense scenery. Of which I have a rather large traffic file consisting of WOAI aircraft, in a combination of UT and WOAI flightplans. I think the problem is the TCAS in the 767, having keep track of them. When I cut traffic down to 30% things are much better!!

I wish LDS luck with this version of their 767 :)

I use the LDS 767 in FS9, so I thought I'd give it a go in FSX. Absolutely no way will this work on my system. I only fly VC, and the frames are between 4-8 with the sliders to the left. I get a solid 21 in FS9. I'm only out $15, I guess I'll try it again when I get a new computer some day. This is not a slam against LDS, it's just FSX and my computer aren't compatible with heavies. Anyone with a machine like mine should be cautious when buying.CurtIntel 2.61 Gig RAMnVidia 6600 256 Memory

An update for you guys on my second attempt to run this aircraft. It seems my first attempt got my FSX in such a tizz changing settings and switching in and out of FSX that it got stuck in a low FPS rut. Had I have left it alone for a minute or so, the FPS nearly doubled as I discovered today. Anyway, today I loaded up my preferred settings profile, which is global high defaults + AA + AF + ground scenery shadows + water at 2.x low + airline traffic at 95% (yes I know this bogs down FSX at busy airports with UT-X) and GA aircraft at 0%. I also ran my displays spanned at 3360x1050 in VC mode, which is a pretty hefty effort to ask of my whole system.At the gate at KIAD with a nearly full ramp at terminal D, I was getting low-mid teens FPS, which increased to high teens to low 20's when taxiing for takeoff, then 25+ FPS once in the air on the way to KLAX (currently half way). This was actually quite acceptable using Track IR.The aircraft itself performs beautifully, just like a highly polished version of the FS9 version. I really like being able to set the speed bugs from the VC now :) And with FSX, we get all the nice jetways, aircraft tugs, wing tip contrails, traffic on the freeways you pass over just after takeoff, etc - all goodness and closer to the real thing.So I'd like to retract my whinge about FSX performance made above. If I had just let it settle the other night, I would have had a better first flight experience. The play pen just got a whole lot better :)Garyhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/173410.jpg

Curt, I wouldn't be to hard on your machine. I thought I had a fair machine but it does not perform to my standards driving LSD 767 FSX. There are some good recommendations to tweak but I'm not willing to down size to make it work. I plan to keep the program on file until I build another machine this winter and give it another shoot. In the mean time, I'll continue to fly the RealAir SF270 FSX with the sliders up and fly the LDS 767 in FS9. ervIntel Core 2 X6800(3.22), P5W Deluxe, Coolmax 650W, Corsair DII800 4G, two 74G/WD 10,000 drives, ASUS 1900XT/512 Card, CoolMaster TAC-T01, Creative Sound Card, USB Logitech 350 Headset with Mic, Win XP Home Edition SP1, FSX SP1, SF260, ActiveSkyX/Graphics.

Gary:I just purchased UT this evening and gave it my first try.How do you get all of the airport aircraft to show up as in your screenshot? I seem to be very limited even with 100% airline traffic selected.Thanks:RTH

Before I compiled and went to the gate at KIAD around lunchtime, I first used the update tool in UT-X to download a whole bunch of new repaints. There is heaps more traffic that what I had porting my UT 2004 over to FSX. I've had to turn traffic down to :)Gary
