Are you serious about Frankfurt? Aerosoft aka German Airports may be doing this airport, but it’llas usual be a FS98 scenery ported for FSX. And do you know what that means? No FSX native technology No FSX specific extras No aerobridges animated by default and, thus, the force to get the crappie AES A huge drop in frames, due to the elder technology used.

My opinion on this, whats yours?

There’s already some of the best sceneries out there representing Frankfurt and Barajas (thinking of course of the Mega Airport series). Does it make sense to invest more time and effort on recreating them again, and money on re-buying them, even if they are a little better, when it all could be spent on creating airports that are still lacking a good representation? Say… Beijing. Auckland. Toronto Pearson. Antananarivo. Dili. An african destination like Luanda, Maputo, Cape City. An US airport never done.
