Even though it's not a real airfield:

If you further click the down arrow, the number changes to a '2'. No idea what the '2' means, but I can confirm that this way Meigs works fine for me, along with Drzewiecki Chicago Landmarks.

I have the same issue with chicago landmarks but on xbox and the only workaround is to remove it. Can you give us a timeframe for when this will be fixed? Your last response was in November and it is now January going into February.

If this is not going to be fixed can you tell me how to request a refund?

But do you mean the compatibility with Meigs Field? If you are talking about this, you require us to adapt our scenery to an airfield that does not exist in real life. I'm not sure if we will be able to provide an exclusion for this area easily.

You can apply for it to the store from which you bought the scenery.

Here is what Marketplace says:
CAN I REQUEST A REFUND FOR CONTENT I REGRET PURCHASING?
You can't request a refund. Marketplace purchases are not refundable unless the DLC was removed from the Marketplace at the creator's request. If your addon was removed from Xbox, contact our support, otherwise, contact the developer of the addon.

"otherwise, contact the developer of the addon."

For those with issues with Meigs Field there is a simple workaround.
Go into General Options in MFS
Go into Experimental (last option)
Go to Package Reorder tool and click to on.
This will bring up a new window that you can scroll through. Find "microsoft-airport-kcgx-Meigs-field" and click the down arrow to the left.
Meigs field should now be bottom of the list below your Chicago landmarks scenery.
Click apply and save and then set your package reorder tool option back to off.
Now when you load Meigs field it should appear as intended along with Chicago.
Alternatively you can manually edit your MSFS SceneryIndexes folder to reorder it. Conflicting or overlapping sceneries are overwritten from the top down.

I just want the performance and lighting fix that was promised.
DEVS
I can replicate this 100% so if you say you have not replicated it then you must not be testing properly and it is unacceptable given GPU and CPU usage suddenly triples and my FPS nose dives from 45 locked to near single digits.
(RTX4080, 32GB 3600mhz RAM, Nvme drive, R5600X)
My guess is it is memory related as it does not happen immediately and you need to do a lap or two low and slow around the main city (Skyscrapers) and past the Ferris wheel and back around then you will replicate it.
At first my FPS remains stable at 45 but after a few minutes and a lap or two it will suddenly drop with massive GPU and CPU spikes, this only happens with your scenery.

Let me say that it's not so obvious - in some cases it was possible to replicate it, in some didn't. Nevertheless, I allow myself to quote the last Stanislaw's message:
DD Stanislaw wrote: Tuesday 13 Dec 2022, 04:19 We've already got a different texture set for the night lighting which looks much more realistic. It will be published together with the performance fix (but this all will come after KEWR release).
As soon as it's done, we will release it - undoubtedly, it's not forgotten.

The issue with the Meigs Field has been fixed long time ago but not published yet, as we also wanted to investigate the performance issue. Chicago Landmarks MSFS will be the next one to be updated.

That is good to here.
Thank you for listening.
I look forward to the update and fix.
Do you have a date for release as it sounds like it was pretty much ready at time of your last post.

Hi.
It may be released by the end of this week.
We are currently testing/fixing the new installer code that would allow the automatic handling of package priorities in the Content.xml file.

Microsoft store version is still 1.2
Have any idea when it is likely to be updated or how else I can update my Chicago package to 1.3?
