Alexander, we will consider all your suggestions and eventually do the changes in the next update. On the other hand - as it was mentioned it's demanding area and sometimes we need to take shortcuts or to work out the compromise between quality and performance to make the scenery functional.

Hi,

thank you for your reply.

I understand, that its a demanding area and compromises have to be made.. but, and these are only my 2 cents - is it really better to have those -fps affecting, very unreal reflections *just* to have them? Or wouldnt the scenery be better without them, if its not possible to render and program them in a realistic and nice way without hitten the fps brake so much?

I can imagine that there are a few people out there who think the same way - but also there will be some people out there censored-storming you for not having reflections :) Could a customizable option be the solution for that?

Thank you for your time and consideration - as always great support from you guys! (other then other dev... *cough*)

Hi.
The reflections look normal to me - there are no interiors in those models so basically everything is reflected at about 50% strenght. In our newer sceneries this look better since there are interiors included and also more advanced techniques used for realistic reflections. Here is an example from KORD:

What you can do is try switching the Dynamic Reflection OFF in the sim settings. This won't make it look more realistic but you might prefer that effect rather than what you have now.

The PAPI in this case is missing simply because it wasn't implemented at the real airport when the scenery was created. Hereafter we thank you a lot for your report - we will add the PAPI in the next update of the project.

Hi

I recently purchased the NY scenery and when approaching NY KJFK/KLGA or on the ground at Prepar3d startup, Prepar3d crashes to desktop after initially loading scenery. I don't have this problem with any other scenery installed on my computer. I am using Prepar3d version 4.5 academic version. Any ideas as to what may be causing this?

Thanks
Cheers
Craig

Hi, firstly please confirm that you have the last version of our scenery and that you tried to reinstall it with admin rights.

Have you also tried it with "Lite texture pack"?
You may also try to leave only only one airport and see if it makes any change.

Is it a classic "crash to desktop" or there is any error message?

Is it possible that our scenery may be in conflict of any of the old sceneries that we're installed in your sim for this area? Or maybe conflict in any other addon?

Is it possible to turn on the airport lights with the QW 787? Normally you tune to 112.000 on Nav2, but I don't think that's possible with QW 787, so the airport is dark at night.

Hi.
112.0 NAV2 works indeed for manual switching of the lights ON however in addition to that lights switch ON automatically at night.

Hi all. I recently purchased both NY Airports packs. When flying at night or in dark conditions I have been experiencing a weird issue with FSX: I get boxes everywhere. They are 2d as shown below at LGA on runway 4:

Can anyone point me in the right direction of a fix? I have searched online, but never found anything like this.\

Looks like DX10 to me.
None of our sceneries are compatible with the DX10 Preview mode without using this additional product (payware): https://stevesfsxanalysis.wordpress.com ... -purchase/

Okay. I will take a look at that. I appreciate your assistance.
