Truscenery Tampere-Pirkkala

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm currently enjoying the marvelous EFTP fromTruscenery, and the gorgeous Cessna CT210M Centurion from Carenado. Wanted to share some of the visual happiness they bring to me. :D

Sorry for the really low unauthorised flight, just wanted to look at the flowers ;)

Enjoy !

Wow amazing scenery.. x-plane renderer looks great too. Do you use SweetFX on top of that or is it straight on like that from the engine?

Sweetfx is directx only. Xplane is OpenGL based and therefore isn't compatible. But with such nice HDR effects built in, it isn't missed.

 

My question is what fps do you get? Also are you running on extreme resolution? It looks so crisp. I'm also guessing that you had HDR turned on in the day time. Was that the case?

 

Overall 10/10....great shots!

Did they give you some special permission to fly so low over the terminal?  

X-Plane is just looking simply amazing with all of the new addons.  I'm loving how it's coming along.  There are just a few little thorns, like the way switches and knobs cannot be manipulated with the mouse wheel, but these are tolerable, once you get used to them and hopefully they will be fixed eventually.

Your screenshots are great.  I really enjoyed looking at them.

Oh wow, then X-Plane is simply awesome. There's certainly no need to add anything from it looks like now.

Thanks to all ! I had a lot of fun doing these shots ! :)

No SweetFX, as Steve said X-Plane is OpenGL, and I'm on Linux.

Yes, I could activate HDR and global shadows at the same time and still have acceptable FPS. I don't usually fly with both activated but for some screenshots it's great. The FPS are in the 20-30 range. With HDR on, I had to reduce texture resolution to "very high" because the 2Gb limit of my GPU was easily reached. As you noticed, it's still perfectly crisp at that resolution.

 

The shots where resized from 1920x1200 to 1400x?? with a very light pass of "refocus" filter with Gimp, just enough to keep the original crispness.

Nah, I just lost my PPL for the pleasure of your eyes ! :lol:

Speaking of switches, I must say that Carenado's manipulators implementation is great and inventive enough to let you forget about lack of mouse wheel. And the C210 is a perfect little powerful plane, my favourite GA for now.

:O  :O :clapping:  :shok:   HOLY COW!  NICE PICS!  I love that scenery, it looks even better when you park a giant 777 in the parking lot next to all the cars :lol:

I'm sorry to hear about your PPL, but I'm sure it was worth it just to get those beautiful pictures out to our admiring eyes.  Of course, you probably have homeland security watching you for the rest of your life also, but at least they didn't shoot you down (:  .......this time.

I agree.  I have that C210 and it is a beautiful aircraft for X-Plane.  Carenado knows how to build them right.

Those shots look extremely realistic. Looking forward to upcoming releases from Truscenery. They did a truly (pun intended) job.

Having been to the airport couple times as passenger... That looks about 100% accurate to the real world :P

 

And your screenies do really capture TruScenery's work beautifully. :smile:

Okidoki - those screens made me look for the nearest X-plane 10 vendor here in Finland. Which the developer could look to the southwest and do my home airport in Finland, EFMA! :D

Thanks for the info. I plan on buying one of the upcoming Nvidia 700 series (presumbably the 780 unless the names change) when they are runoured to be released in the coming weeks. I'm hoping that a new card will allow me to handle extreme resolution with HDR turned on. I currently have an ATI 5870 which does a pretty good job with HDR and shadows on medium but only on very high resolution. I just hope my i7 920 @3.9gz is still powerful enough. From what I've read it's not really worth upgrading from that processor to a new one - there's not enough a jump. I think a new GPU will give me a better boost. Or I hope at least!

No problem on the processor side, it's very good. As for the GPU, you should definitely see a big improvement, especially with 4 Gb memory. HDR makes frames drop dramatically when there is not enough memory. I'm not sure the 700 serie will be the generation which finally allows to max out everything in every situation though: the clouds, especially when flying very near of the layer, are quite hard on FPS. Also, it would be great to be able to use HDR and 8x AA, because 4x AA is not enough to clean all shimmering.

Gosh! How have I missed these screenshots. Incredible Pascal. Truscenery have done a great job here. Come on 3rd part devs!!! Look at what can be achieved with this simulator.
