does anybody know if FS9 has a maximum number of effects it can view at once?

I ask this because I have created an airport taxiway centerline system in gmax using a total of 2876 effect references.

Because of the number of effects, I can't compile them all at once. So I have divided the airport into 12 sectors with about 200 lights each.

Each section compiles well and can be viewed individually within FS9.

The problem arises as soon as I start adding them together.

I would estimate I can get about 1000 of the effects to show up at any one time. And it is always the first in line name wise (omega_1, omega_2, etc).

So, I was just wondering if FS has a maximum number of effects it will show at one time? If it does, than I have to figure out another way of making center line lights.

Thanx
