I don't mean the official release (although there where appropriate) so much as the downloadable scenery available at e.g. http://www.flightgear.org/Downloads/scenery.html . . .in other words, just as we have radio towers decorating the landscape, having cooling towers and might be good as well; and just as we have control towers and windsocks at airports, having checkerboarded buildings at the airport navaids locations might also look very nice. Yes, it's true that the stuff can (with some effort if you wanna do it globally) be downloaded and installed; but so could be the radio towers and the control towers and the windsocks and so forth. If we know that they're present, and we know their locations, and we have models for them, and it doesn't consume a lot of disk space to include them or bandwidth to download them, why not include them? -c -- Chris Metzler [EMAIL PROTECTED] (remove "snip-me." to email) "As a child I understood how to give; I have forgotten this grace since I have become civilized." - Chief Luther Standing Bear
