First impressions;........I'm at the real JFK
I installed and my first interaction with the scenery was at night and the first thing I noticed was the realism of the "flood lights" and the distinct defference between the yellow and the white type. The airport so far is more than I expected considering that my machine is on the lower end of the spectrum. Yes, I've been in the backdoor forum since day one but those shots were for the most part FSX on a more powerfull machine than my own. So it was awesome and amazing to get very similar if not the same quality visuals as seen in the development screenshots on a Pentium 4.
The staff did a perfect job of capturing the feel and atmosphere of the airport and I have to commend you all for that. One other thing about those flood lights, I have all the big name sceneries from all the big name developers and I have to say that those lights illuminating the ramps are the best I have seen in FS9. The glow (halo) is as perfect as I've ever seen. The taxiway and runway textures are of the highest order and so far taxing around the airport (with AI traffic) I have no performance issues whatsoever.
So basically other than a minor issue with the trees that I posted somewhere else, for all of you who have never been to Kennedy; Welcome to JFK
