I've been looking round for ages trying to find new beautiful airports, I've landed at St Maarten before but never took time to look at the little details such as the men in the control tower and the cruise liners everywhere.

The biggest criticism I have about this pic is the grass, however thinking back to FS9 I think its still an improvement. What do you think? Be as cruel as you want, but don't criticise my parking!

Yes, I think the grass is still quite poor. Not just the grass, but the way the concrete meets the grass is quite bad...

Nonetheless, its a nice shot. I prefer their default liveries this time aswell - slightly more realistic and less of an eye sore. Good job Thumbs Up!

I agree but think about it...

the person which has the game and if it is a demo the graphics arent the same in a demo as in the real game.
and you also have to think about the graphics card. how good it is.
if you want the best detailed graphics for fsx you'll need windows vista and at least a very good 512mb graphics card.

You would be right. I think he was trying to show that FS9 can accomplish the same thing...if you have the addon for that airport.

Let me see, one addon for each of 22,000 airports....I think 4 terabytes of disk space should be enough. Laughing

Laughing I think some of you need to use FS9 default scenery again to notice the difference. I've taken another pic, if this one isnt any better, then I hate you all! Wink
