I have been looking through the entire avsim scenery category and I came across some scenery that has more features than quit a bit of payware sceneries.
Avsims File description [It's amazing]: File Description:
GMAX BACOLOD SUPERSCENERY Version 2005 is a product of months of Scenery research and innovation. This scenery is a one-of-a-kind Flight Simulation Scenery wherein its boasts of its FULL ANIMATION FEATURE which can mostly be found in payware addons. Featured in the product are the following realistic animations: 1. Air Traffic controllers moving inside the tower. 2. Detailed baggage carts moving from the cargo section to the ramp. 3. Moving passengers walking from the Bacolod Airport Pre-Departure Area to the aircraft airstairs. 4. Moving shrubs and palmtrees – in unsynchronized swaying motion. 5. Four moving Cebu Pacific buses transferring passengers from the ramp to the Cebu Pacific terminal building. 6. Moving wind instruments above the control tower such as the wind vane and the rotating beacon lights. 7. Moving firetrucks which will move forward and backward every now and then when aircrafts land and takeoff. 8. A flock of swallows and gamebirds frolicking and flying throughout the airport vicinity waiting for an engine ingestion which will make your approach much more challenging. 9. A traffic of buses, cars, and jeepneys along Araneta Street which will make your Runway 22 approach much more realistic. 10. Rocking fishing boats and bancas located along the Approach path of Runway 04. All of these make GMAX BACOLOD SUPERSCENERY very, very realistic. And because it’s made from Discreet’s GMAX, you’ll be assured of light framerate hits. Some of the features included in the scenery are the following: 1. Robinson’s Metro Bacolod Mall infront of the Bacolod Airport terminal. 2. Cebu Pacific Terminal building. 3. Asian Alcohol Hangar. 4. Jalandoni Hangar. 5. Palmas del Mar Water Tower. 6. Gumayan Air Charter Hangar, Negros Air Hangar 7. The famous and controversial Sugarland Hotel whose 4th storey level was ordered by the late ATO Chief Panfilo Villaruel be trimmed down due to Runway 22 obstruction. In the scenery, the location of the hotel is accurate and you can really determine whether Sugarland Hotel is really an obstruction to Runway 22 approach. To make this much more realistic, I activated the crash detection on the building so that aircrafts approaching Runway 22 can crash to the building when necessary or if incidents permit. 8. Goldenfield Garden Hotel which is now converted to Bacolod Casino Hotel. 9. Goldenfield Entertainment Complex. 10. Bacolod Convention Plaza. 11. Gaisano City-Bacolod 12. Bacolod Public Plaza with its bandstand. 13. Bacolod Cathedral Building.
The scenery doesn't look too great but if you read the "File Description" you would probably forget about some of the looks.
Here are a few S shots.

It's a fun one at least. The people sort of move around like South Park characters, but it's a break from the norm anyway. I do like the birds flying around and the trees swaying. Also the moving traffic.
Here's a video if some of you aren't too sure whether to dowload it or not.
How's it effect the FPS?
The movie makes it seem fairly bad so I'll check it out and tell you how bad the FPS are affected.
WOW WOW WOW WOW. It's probably the best freeware scenery I've ever downloaded.Their are lots of birds [seagulls] flying around, tons of cars driving aroung the city as you land, fire trucks that come out when you or the Ai aircaft is landing, passenger buses, plane spotters, moving people etc... Another great thing is they have done a whole town [or bits of a city] not just the airport.
How's it effect the FPS?
It hardly effects the FPS at all. It's great.
After landing I taxied to parking and looked out over a wing view to see people rushing towards me and vanishing near my right engine
