In the flightengine.ini file, under "UnlimitedDetailOption", set the "DetailMeshSize" value to 12 (make sure your system can handle it.) The file is then placed into the flight subfolder of your saved games/thridwire/SF2x folder(s).

Again is this GPU or CPU intensive?will a 512MB vid card deliver?Right now at DetailMeshSize=6 I'm getting 30+FPS.

You'll have to unpack this file from flightdata.cat (using catextractor available here at CA), found in your strike fighters installation directory, modify the file as mentioned above (increase the "detailmeshsize" values to 6 or 8 - this will lower your framerate though), and place it in your mod directory Flight folder. Mod directory is usually C:\Users\User Name\Saved Games\ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2\.

I did that but the file in C:\Users\User Name\Saved Games\ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2\Flight\. do I need to do the same as the other addon for example C:\Users\Users\Saved Games\ThirdWire\\StrikeFighters2 Israel\Flight\

Yes, if you want changes in flightengine.ini to affect all your merged titles, then you'll have place the file in all the respective folders: C:\Users\.....\StrikeFighters2 Isreal\Flight\ ; StrikeFighters Vietnam\Flight\ ; StrikeFighters Europe\Flight\ etc.
