Imagine Sim. Denver : hot test


A new heavy airport for FSX. An update for old FS9 version. In term of quality, something halfway from Blueprint and FSDreamteam. An amazingly large airport located in the center of USA.

(This has been tested on FSX version).
Installation : Easy. Folder automatically added to libray.
File : 150 mb (FSX).
Framerate : Friendly.
At max configuration (settings at max, ATI antialiasing, mipmapping.. max) => 11fps
At average config : more than 14-15 fps with this PC settings :
config. core quad 2,33Ghz, 8 mram, ATI 5850, One screen resolution :
REX + UTX installed.

The bad :
* The airport is neat, not the slightest problem but we would have appreciated more details.
* Insufficient road traffic. There is a custom cars traffic but i had to set it to 60% to see something.
* Lack of bridges... (2 or 3 road bridges easy to design could have been built-up).

The good :
* Very nice and accurate ground textures.
* As always, some BGL files can be easily removed to rise fps.
* The good framerate.
* Many new flights to plan in USA : inbound Vegas, Dallas, Phoenix...
