Up until recently, the ONS map "tricky" was "very slow" when I looked toward 
the center, but OK when looking at the side or "up in the air".  I was also 
using an ATI 9000 based card, then I "succumbed" and bought a nVidia card and 
all is well with tricky.  At first, I thought it was the "flame effect" 
surrounding the rings suspended in midair, but after I installed the new 
card, I think it is because there are (supposed to be) "puddles" of water 
throughout the map which REFLECT the scenery (and are 90% transparent at the 
same time), so "bad map design" may have a lot to do with it.  (well, not 
"bad" per se, but rather "not the most processor-friendly" :) )

As you might imagine, I never noticed the "standing water/reflection" effect 
using the ATI card.
