One major thing I must say is for decades people have had issues with the KSAN area (as well as other CA airports). There is a ton going on in this area and people that have their settings set for the best visuals of their hometown airport that then load up KSAN will always be shocked. FPS drop is due to the insane amount going on with the plethora of other nearby airports, air traffic, road traffic, topography, etc, etc. I'm one to try to find a balance from my local airport and these much larger hubs because I am also not one that wants to keep adjusting my settings, but it's a must in this CA area as it is in Boston, Seattle, New York and Washington D.C. Not to mention these areas are all also nearby oceans and the added settings of that along with ones settings for it just adds to FPS hit that one might rarely see if they're not flying comparable places.
Best advice I can say to anyone not understanding how little LVFR's KSAN has on FPS hit is to fly the default first with various weather and time of day and then do the same with this and you'll see little to no difference. Even improvements.
One hope I have for LVFR is more news on works in progress. I'll always happily wait for their products but money is tighter these days so if I buy one developers Kxxx then chances are that will be the only one I buy for awhile.

1. Give us at least 1 Nimitz-class aircraft carrier in the harbor.
2. Fix the Star of India on the Embarcadero- MAJOR San Diego landmark and she is just pathetic looking in the default scenery.
Overall 4 and a half stars. :)

Lots of details. A lot of value for the price you pay! Not only does it include the airport with some interiors of the terminal, but it also includes PBR buildings in the downtown area to bring the city alive when approaching runway 27. I've had a lot of fun trying to land different planes on the USS Midway.
It would be nice to see the Navy shipyard redone in a future update, but overall, this looks great!
