DX10 and Compatible Airports

Recommended Posts

I thought it might be a good idea to start the thread, and maybe Jim will pin it, (please!) leaving it open for addition - rather than having to find the odd airport that was mentioned in a string of unrelated posts, like "DX9 Sux bigtime!" or "No Traffic at Pyong-Yang Muni". Please add your "finds" and DX10-friendly" Vendors as you come across them.. Tx.

 

I'll start the ball rolling with this bunch!

 

FS DreamTeam: Here.

 

KLAX, KJFK, KDFW, GSX

 

SimAddons: Here.

 

All!

No, I think it's best left unpinned. Sorry!

I think it is best if it will be pinned because there are multiple topics about compability.

 

To add:

 

All uk2000 sceneries. (except the movable gate textures but It is almost one of the only addon airports for europe that almost completely works at night)

 

All tropicalsim sceneries.

 

Aerosoft Santorini does also work at day and night

Then we would just have to search every post that comes in, and remember each one, instead of having a single list - a "go-to" point which could be continuously updated... :huh:

I have added the link to this thread in Paul's pinned 'How to' document.

 

I strongly believe as individuals post their findings, this topic will continue to stay at the top of the forum. If it goes south to another page, well, people will have lost interest or the list is considered complete. I have found that most people do not read or see pinned topics. My proof? The new signature policy here at AVSIM is just one example. It has been out since July and is pinned at the top of many forums but a lot of members have not seen the policy. When I remind them of it via a PM, they usually state they never saw the policy. If we started pinning every topic that members thought were important, it would be a mess. Please do not ask me anymore. I think a lot of people will read the 'How to' post and see the link to this thread (if they are interested).

 

Best regards,

Jim

Kai Tak from Flytampa works fine, but during installation you must choose default textures for runways, taxiways, etc. and not high resolution ones. Flytampa's Vienna is absolutely incompatible.

+1 for not pinning it.

 

 

Aerosoft Mega Airport Frankfurt (EDDF) does NOT work at night, and during the day there are service vehicles without textures.

Now that DX10 is now beeing fixed and new add-ons are now DX10; developers are taking notice of the huge movement toward DX10, they are now programming for DX10. This is how we as simmers find out what is good and what is not what we want. For me if the product dosn't say " DX10 COMPATABLE" I will not buy it. I personally think that this will not go away and it is here too stay. This discussion will never go away and I am as honest as I can be. I have been around flight simulators a looooooooooong time and this is the next generation in flight simming!! So to say that people will loose interest is not correct. I will now get off my soap box..... I am disappointed...

Unfortunately Aerosoft is the company that made me go back to DX9 because I have many of their airports that are not DX10 compatible :angry:

 

I hope genius Steve to fix this problem until Christmas (?) :rolleyes:

I bought Stansted Xtreme yesterday and although it is beautiful in DX9 mode, in DX10, a lot of airport ground vehicles, buses, etc, are driving around as grey 'blobs' with no textures.

Vancouver, by FS DreamTeam. One of the best and most realistic airports i have ever seen in the fsx world. KLAX is good, too, along with GSX. All are DX10 compliant.

The current shader capability DX9 versus DX10 can be easily judged using the FSDT CYVR Demo.

Although the framerates go down up to 14 (DX10) and 12 (DX9) in some high density local airport area, the smoothness in DX10 is the key.

If using the CYVR demo on top of FTX PNW don´t forget to deactivate the 4 corresponding files as mentioned in the ORBX compatibility forum here: http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/53085-pnw-compatibility-with-fsdt-cyvr/.

I think you might want to make that URL again, Wulf.... I see two "?" mark symbols at the end of the line, and that usually means that it's broken.. :smile:

I can confirm CYVR works great in DX10. Anybody tried the new Fly Tampa CYUL? I don't think it will work in DX10 but perhaps someone has first hand experience?

Share this post

CYUL does not. There are some approach lighting issues and Static ground vechicles that dont work. You can disable the vechicles and there might be a fix for the lights but not sure.

 

I'm currently going thru all my addon airports of Orbx to find what works and what needs to be adjusted in the control panel. Impressively things are looking very good day and night. Once I have a complete list I will post my findings.

Ok so I went thru all of the Orbx NA fields I have and here are the results I found:

 

All these fields work perfect during the day and night but some might need the aircraft landing lights on for correct night lighting:

KORS, WA35, 74S, KBVS, WN51, WA56, 3W5, 2WA1, WA45, 1S2, 1WA6, WA79, WA7M, 7S3, PAKT, CYBD, CZST, KCMW, W38, S43, W16, 77S, OR57, OR49, KWYS, KFSS, 2S1, WA69, 2W3.

 

These airports required some features turned off in the control panel to work correctly:

1) 0S9 and 80WA need static aircraft turned off and you still have a small issue at 80WA with the picnic table and a plane in the hangar.

 

2) S45 you can only have grass on low

 

3) W52 must remove static aircraft

 

These are Day only:

KJAC due to a bright fence

OG39 has a grey tarmac

 

Finally CEN4 and CEJ4 which dont have a control panel have issues with static a/c and grass and I wont fly them in DX10 personally.

 

When I get a chance I will check out the Oz and NZ airports.

 

Hope this helps.

Thanks Ident, it helps alot!

 

I haven't bought the NA fields yet, now I know which ones not to buy :)

 

When you test out the OZ/NZ fields, let us know what you find. I've only flown out of non-ORBX lately so I havne't got to testing them.. busy testing the FlyTampa airports and patching what I can

I've given up on FlyTampa and DX10. Just gonna stick with DX9 when flying outside of Orbx. FlyTampa, FSDT and LLHinfo are my 3 main addon scenery developers for that and I dont have OOM or texture issues with them outside of Orbx regions.

Don't give up on FT yet, alot of their airports work.

I don't own any of their Canadian and some of their US airports, but I have the rest and tested them out yesterday. The results are better than I thought for many:

 

DX10 Fix Version: 3.2.2

 

An X means it passed the test, i.e. looks fine.

 

DAY PAPI NIGHT

VHHX X X X - looks amazing. Pick correct ground during install.

TNCM: X X X

SABA X X X

TFFJ X X FAIL

TVSB X X X

TVSM X X X

TVSC X X X

TVSU X X X

TGPZ X X X

KTPA X Square FAIL | PAPI Square is fixed when delete the file

OMDB X Square FAIL | PAPI Square is fixed when delete the file

LOWW X X FAIL(surface lighting broken, but grnd text is ok)

LGAV: X X FAIL(ground texture)

 

So I just know that I can't fly night time into their airports, unless it is Kai Tak or their Caribbean airports (except St Barts). I can live without the PAPI on those two that I removed it from.

 

What they have done with Kai Tak though, allowing SDK compatible ground textures during install would be the BEST option for them to do for all of them, Kai Tak looks spectacular at night with DX10!! I think I want to base myself there now

CEN4 Version 2 freeware from ORBX for NRM seems to work in DX10 now.

FlightBeam KSFO does NOT work at night with DX10, works fine under DX9.

 

I have DX10 3.2.2. patch/update installed, but sadly no go ... runway is all gray and surrounding shoreline is all gray. Otherwise it's a awesome during the day in DX10.
