Tic, just bought the FS9 version of your ZBAA scenery. Outstanding work done to a very high standard indeed. Even with my bloated AI the performance of the airport is excellent. Outstanding night lighting. A very impressive scenery.

One small issue to report. The night texture for your static 744 is misnamed so the model shows up without textures in the sim.

Thanks again for doing a FS9 version.

I might mistype the name of the texture. I will take a look on that issue.
 
This should be the correct file name.. you just have an extra space.
AirChina 747_400_lm.bmp

One other very small thing is after running DxtFixerX I had these textures with no alpha channel (known to create stutters). DxtFixerX fixed them all.

Amazing scenery!! No issue for me with FPS (locked at 50) with 100% AI. Great thanks as well for the FS9 version!! Still exploring :)

Well done Tic

Those textures are ground poly and they have no alpha since there is no alpha required. No hole to see default landclass below.
Anyway, I will test on this issue since I notice that ground poly take a time when you are near. Is that the "stutter" you mean?. It become white just a fraction of second then it goes on. A few dot on alpha channel does nothing to the appearance. Thanks for the information.
I am glad you like it.

Alpha-less DTX BMP's are known to cause some stutters when loading and can for some users a FPS loss. This is known for FS9 but not sure about the newer platforms. This is applicable to scenery and aircraft textures the same so it is just a tool I have got into the habit of using. I am having NO loading issues or issues while panning here Tic.

Today I have tried to make alpha channel to those textures that missing. It does not change much. Ground poly seems to load up faster a bit, just my feeling, but not so significant.
 
Dear Tic,

I 'd like to thank you so very much for developing ZBAA Beijing also for us FS9ers. It is a great pleasure after all these years of waiting, having such an amazing scenery of one of the world's biggest airports in my sim in such a high quality. It is really impressing how smooth your scenery is running on my years old computer with lot's of AI on at 100%. Your work is worth every single cent and I will spend a lot of time from now on in this virtuell place of delight.

Thank you for this - you made me really happy. :):):)
Best regards :wave:

I have 12 years old computer runing on WinXP. My job is getting scenery run on my computer. If I can fly, everyone can fly. FPS is my first priority. Yes, you can see other sceneries with a lot more eye candies, people on the aprons, seats in the terminal and people walk around. I bought one of those and I had a Powerpoint-slide-show of my flying. I wanted to fly, not to see. I think it is better to balance the detail and fps. I do as much detail as a pilot can see but not the passenger can see.
I am glad you are happy, Dedl.
