Could those who installed it comment on how it effects frame rate?This question is just for the lucky few who have RTM Acceleration...Will Acceleration/SP2 install cleanly if UTX Canada is installed first?

FPS for UTX Canada or USA are very dependent on location and aircraft not to mention car traffic level etc.... There's obviously a hit when going from default scenery but it all depends on so many things.Just flew a flight in the northwest territories with near max settings and in the DA Dornier, locked at 25 without dropping, needless to say this area doesn't have much but it was a great flight.Need to test the larger cities though of course. Now just waiting for Alaska and Acceleration.

I've got 150MB left on the DL. Then it's flying time. (Lousy slow cable connection.)But I'm very bummed out that Alaska is not included, it was on the FS9 version. Now I won't have that gorgeous whole west coast of B.C. to Alaska. That's the best place to fly in FS. Bad idea not to include it. Also, I'm not sure how far north UTX-Canada goes. The FS9 version stopped well short of our northern border so we didn't get those incredible artic islands in UT detail. Double bummer.Oh well, I'll just have to placate myself flying my fave flight from Stewart to Bella Coola with UTX-Canada and FEX in snowy weather. That's going to be great!(Oh, at least we FS9 UT-Canada/Alaska users get 20% off UTX-Canada. Between the coupons for FEX and this, I'm saving about $20. and $20 is $20.)

One reason why Alaska was not included:Alaska is a very unique area. So special effort is being put in to Alaska with unique features, and extreme detail. The development methods for Alaska are similar, but some great things will be in the Alaska version.

Thanks Steve.I asked this same question at your forum site, if you don't mind I will quote the answer here as it is a detailed one."Canada is it's own product now for 2 reasons:(1) DMTI Spatial provided the data for all of Canada now. If we added Alaska, we would have to also pay another data provider for the Alaska portion, because DMTI only covers Canada. (2) Alaska is going to be it's own product. Because of Alaska's unique terrain, it will have some different features from the other products. The water features in UTX Alaska will improve overall compared to the UT Alaska FS9 versions. Holger Sandmann is joining the team for UTX Alaska. So, he will be adding his special touch. UTX Alaska will be released in 2008.UTX Canada now covers all of Canada, including the extreme northern portions.UTX Canada stops just beyond the Alaska border. We fill out the remaining border areas down to the LOD9 level, so that the features blend with the existing FSX Alaska regions."

I've got it installed and it looks very nice. The improvements in coast lines alone is worth the price. (Kinda.) The landscape itself look much more realistic and it's very nice to fly over places you've been and recognize them. I've only been flying it for an hour or two but I've sen enough to recommend it to all my fellow Canucks. Even our American friends will find lots to appreciate in it as well.The FPS hit, for me, varies between nothing and not much.I'm running full Genesis mesh, FEX & UTX-Canada. Toss in some GE Pro action and this baby is going to sing!

Hi Geofa,Canada looks great, I download it as soon as I saw it was available. I can hardly wait for UTX Alaska, then "Misty"!Not to go too far off topic, but from your comment about Acceleration/sp2 I take it that it is not necessary to start with a clean install when adding the new MS addon/sp?Ron
