FSDT KLAX for FSX Released

Recommended Posts

Getting my copy now. I've been anticipating this release for some time. Along with the NGX this is a plus. I wonder how far along KPHX from Flightbeam and KSAN from ceilosim are?

Its not bad. Runs very well. All the shinny HD is overrated.Ground textures are very horrible colours. Looks better at night. Far from Orbx or Flytampa quality but its not a farm & BAW fly there :)
I couldn't disagree more - you must not have gotten the same airport I did. I've got all the FlyTampa airports and this is as good or better than anything George has ever done. Colors are a matter of opinion (the real LAX area is no beauty) , but the level of detail is astonishing. DJ

Well Thruster I really have to disagree with you on that one, but what your saying sounds harsh considering all the work the team has put into it, I think its a fantastic airport but oh well you can please everyone in this world just flew for only a few minutes since I have been and out of the house the past few hours Phil you are gonna go broke man! lol

ARGH Thought I'd install and try anyway. Getting a CTD at 90% loading. Always. Tried the default flight - no problem. Tried FSDT KLAS - no problem. KLAX is CTD-ing on me without end, and the culprit is always ntdll.dll. I'm gussing the scenery is too heavy for my computer too handle or something, even though all other FSDT airports do not CTD on me. I'll start disabling entries in the scenery library, see if there's something here that causes problems. EDIT: Right, turned off all sceneries I have for that area, except stuff like UTX< and find the sim crashing at 100%... So it seems KLAX is not the problem here. *sigh* It's such a pity that I always have to troubleshoot this sim before I can do anything with it...

Do you have multiple KLAX AFCADs installed?

Benjamin did you try to disable ai traffic or do you have it on? it could be also what Ryan mentioned multiple KLAX AFCADs files.

Anyone else find this reference to "cartoon" being one of the most overused comparisons? Time to come up with some new similes guys. This is a cartoon: original.jpg

I suspect it's the AI traffic indeed. I let FSX rebuild the fsx.cfg, and it all works now (although FPS are rather horrid). However, the MTX entry is also not present - yet. I'll add it and see what happens. There are no duplicate AFCADs. EDIT: Added in the AI, and bam, CTD at 100% loading. No idea why, it works at all other places. Somebody have a clue?

*update: im flying the demo. look like the Team that has made los angeles is the one that has made PHNL coz i remember there are 2 development team at FSDT. the textures look much more better then Dallas. may i be wrong but this is my feeling. the hands on KLAX looks the same of PHNL.

Theres big holes in the ground too around the edges of the bridges. Very very messy. I expect better before i buy this.I stand by the ugly ground comments. It looked better for a few seconds before their textures load. Once they load, AHHHH, its ugly arsed mess.Shame because the rest of it is above average & we need a good LAX in FSX.
Thruster If you see any problems you should post them at there forum so they can take a look at it the ground looks different because its not the traditional ground you normally see its done via Shaders. below is part of page 12 of the manual explaining this. FSDreamTeam Los Angeles International Airport LAX - page 12 Design Notes This scenery has been made using brand new design methods in FSX. The challenge was to create such large airport, without compromising quality and texture sharp- ness on ground. Because of this, new design methods, based on native FSX Shaders had to be imple- mented, and our .DLL module Addon Manager, is helping to bypass some limita- tions of the FSX SDK, that will not normally allow to use native FSX shaders and fully custom ground textures, without visual artifacts. In order to enjoy the scenery at its fullest, we suggest the following: • Keep the “Mesh Resolution” slider at 5m/pixel, and the “Mesh Complexity” slider at 100. With less resolution, some visual problems might appear. • If you have an ATI video card, don’t use the “Adaptive Antialiasing” feature, because it will cause visual problems on the ground. • Due to the technique used, there might be some areas of the scenery that don’t show the user airplane shadow correctly, this is normal, and it only happen in a few places. • Late in the afternoon, or early down, the Shader effects on the ground are more visible, since the sunlight comes from an angle that makes the Bump mapping and Specular mapping used on the concrete more apparent. • On your Video Card control panel, set the “Anisotropic Filter” to 8x or 16x, don’t use the default “Application Controlled” setting • IMPORTANT - On the Addon Manager menu, be sure you have the “Force HD Textures” option ENABLED! This is very important in order to enjoy the scenery at its full quality, since it enables the usage of 4096x4096 texture resolution, which is how most of the textures in the scenery were designed for.

Ah i see now you must have a bad texture file somewhere in mtx happened once to me in simwings aerosoft Madrid scenery using world of ai, it kept crashing over and over till I disabled ai traffic and it was fine I then went on a crazy hunt for the missing texture not sure about the MTX entry hope it fixes it I'm currently using ut2.

Hi, Already downloading.... SWEET
Just a small question, Michael, Was that earlier discount that I had read about a couple of months ago to purchasers of their earlier stuff being offered by FSDT available to use with this purchase? Thanks.

I don't know if I have a bad install or not. I've read posts that say the performance is really good, but when I'm sitting on runway 7L I have frame rates in the mid teens with the NGX and the Level-D 767.

Here's my take on the new KLAX: PRICE: Not bad when you consider the detail of this brilliantly produced airport. If you took advantage of the discount, you got a bargain. PERFORMANCE: In the low 20s, but smooth, considering the HD textures. DETAILS: Lots of eye candy, especially at night. Day textures look very good too. I think that FSDT has done a fantastic job with this new airport. It's different, yet similar to most of their excellent airports. Is it my favorite FSDT airport, NO! But, it's one that I will enjoy for many years to come. SCORE: 9 OUT OF 10

Ahh Jeeese I just bought the new Cerasim Bell 222 lol.... muuuuust ressiiiist! DJ, how does it compare to DFW performance and looks-wise? I've got their DFW, LAS, ORD, and JFK sceneries, but DFW hurts my fps the most.

Ryan, About the same performance as KDFW and it looks even better. The colors are more vibrant at KLAX. 2451.jpg5752.jpg1683.jpg
