Im happy to. Like i said the roof of hawthorne global at 1120S is dark green. Not brown. Also the parking lot at the other Hawthorne hanger was not implemented in your version. Lots more lights need to be put in. There are a few missing taxi signs along Alpha and foxtrat. The tree line along hintz road passing RWY 16 are not there. It seems like the default trees from Xp11 are still there, when in fact there are no trees along that road. Same thing with Millwaukee. At the corner of Hintz and Milwaukee the self storage unit was all messed up. I mean part of the building was in the road with the fence sticking out. I will take pictures when I go into work tomorrow to show you. I have been waiting 10 years for this airport to be made. So I would like this to be a very very well done project. I still cant believe that you did not put taxi lights up. Why did you put them in FSX but not xplane? Makes no sence. And when you finished didn't you see that at night you cant taxi anywhere without getting stuck in the grass?

I'm afraid that caused several issues.

The only order that seems to somewhat work, is
...
SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/DD Chicago Airports XP/
SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/Orbx_KCGX_A_Merrill_C_Meigs_Field/
SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/Orbx_KCGX_C_Overlay/
...
SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/world-models/
SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/X-Plane Landmarks - Chicago/
...
SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/XAirportScenery/
...
SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/ZZZ_Orbx_KCGX_Merrill_C_Meigs_Field/
...
SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/z_ortho_GreatLakes/

If I remove ZZZ orbx KCGX, then the runway follows ridiculous contours rending it unsable. However with the order above, i'm getting double markings at KORD and Executive doesn't display at all (just stock). I've tried every combination but cannot get this to work (including placing Chicago XP below KCGX. Shame really as it looks like a nice scenery pack

I'm trying to upload images and each is under 1mb but still says too large. What's the size limit? Surely not smaller than 1mb

[b"]KCGX:
You should place
Orbx_KCGX_A_Merrill_C_Meigs_Field and Orbx_KCGX_C_Overlay
above DD Chicago City and DD Chicago Airports (or simply add f/e "C_" to their name so that the sim would automatically place them above "DD") and disable
ZZZ_Orbx_KCGX_Merrill_C_Meigs_Field"[/b]


I arranged Orbx KCGX Meigs, DD Chicago XP and DD Chicago Airports XP as follows because if I set them up as you have suggested above I would have lost all Terminal Buildings and Runways at KORD.
This way I have Meigs, Chicago City, KORD, Midway and KPWK - Executive working fine to my satisfaction.

SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/Orbx_KCGX_A_Merrill_C_Meigs_Field/
SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/DD Chicago XP/
SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/DD Chicago Airports XP/

@Howieb - Try placing
SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/Orbx_KCGX_C_Overlay/
Between
SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/DD Chicago XP/
SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/KMDW - Chicago Midway Intl/
And see if it helps you get KORD back.

@Howeib - This is a long shot and seeing that you don't have "DD Chicago Airports" then try the following.

SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/Orbx_KCGX_A_Merrill_C_Meigs_Field/
SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/Orbx_KCGX_C_Overlay/


Global Airports


SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/DD Chicago XP/
SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/ZZZ_Orbx_KCGX_Merrill_C_Meigs_Field/

Howieb: You cant use our City scenery with ORBX KCGX, because ORBX sceney have not only airport but also the city. Default x-plane runway should appear if you modify APT.dat from X-Plane 11\Custom Scenery\DD Chicago XP\Earth nav data\ You must delete
17 0 0 0 KCGX Meigs Field (closed)
102 H1 41.86285013 -087.60837095 322.74 32.50 32.40 15 0 0 0.00 0
Last two strings before string with 99.

xjt10: I accepted your remarks about KPWK and i will do it as far as possible.

Overall comment about FPS accepted. Please try install city scenery with no photoreal option and write you results with FPS here.

THANK YOU FOR YOURS FEEDBACKS, TOGETHER WE MAKE OUR PRODUCTS BETTER!
HAPPY NEW YEAR AND MARRY CRISTMAS

After a wasted two hour flight in which I was getting 0.05 frames per second on arrival into KORD, I've now uninstalled Chicago Airports as well, and restored freeware. They looked good as static images but this is meant to be a flight simulator and until a solution is forthcoming I'll make do with stock or free scenery that performs.

The attached photo was taken with using Chicago City XP. The curved building at around 5:00 on the 22nd floor was my bachelor's apartment around 48 years ago. Great memories! This scenery is just beautiful I have been flight simming since 1984 and have never seen such remarkable scenery in any flight sim before!
