The world of framerates can be very subjective. I will give you my experience with these two addons. The captainsim 757 runs so poorly on my system I don't even bother with it. I have been flying the LVL-D almost exclusively on FSX. This plane performs very smoothly on my system and I have not had any problems with it. It is the best complex heavy addon in the market right now. I recommend this airplane for anyone interested in complex addons. Hope this helps. I also run with the following addons. UTX, ActiveSkyX, Radar ContactX, FSGenesis mesh. I do not use any autogen and as of yet I don't fly with any AI because my computer is not powerful enough. This is fine for me until I upgrade my computer, shhh don't tell my wife. ;)

I'm using the Level D and it occasionaly dips under 20fps but only at a large airport such as KSEA or KJFK with scenery density set at the highest. I have the Captain Sim and when I tried it on my last machine it was unflyable. Not even going to bother with it or Captain Sim again. While they make a great exterior model there seems to be something or lack of something in their coding for the VC and 2D cockpits. Most or not all of fps depends on your processor and then your graphics card.

I have the Level-D and dont see too much of a difference in framerates compared to the stock aircraft. Just the usual drop around the heavy citys and real bad weather. Im running ultimate traffic and radar contact along with active sky x on a 2 ghz box and FS commander when i want to see where I am also. I'd recommend that aircraft to anybody who likes to fly the big ones. CLS is my second choice.

yeah but also take into consideration your machine vs. the OP's AMD4200...Let's just say the LvlD won't act like the default plane.....but it is much nicer hehe
