Anyone Tried FSDT KJFK V2 ?

Recommended Posts

Hi really want to purchase this airport today but since i haven't seen some reviews i haven't decide yet if to purchase it . I would like some honest reviews from this scenery . How are FPS when running Opus Weather Engine   , REXE TEXTURES, 737NGX ?

Ya I have it, I run FS2Crew NGX AS2012 and bunch of other things on VATSIM. The FPS are decent, though even without the addon they arent that great in the NY area. I'd turn off AI and lower the AG a little and you should be good. Its a nice Airport and a major hub for us a American Airlines Virtual (joinava.com) so I needed it.

I'm with  Ron on this one.  I picked it up a few weeks ago.  Love it.

 

Good FPS, not alot of impact with AS2012, NGX, UT2 etc.  But like Ron said.  The NYC are scenery has an impact anyway.

 

Highly recommend this airport.

Is it just me or is the night lighting and the way the textures are during that time just still terrible?

Thanks i might also want to add that am running Aerosoft Manhattan X i wonder if that might be an extra FPS killer.  I really need a good decent JKF so far i have  UT2 airline traffic set to 30% an GA 5% i have 25 to 30FPS in the NGX  in Orbx Scenery . So i am thinking how well will FSDT JFK handle Manhattan X .

How far are your airline slider in UT2 ? Mines is at 30% airline traffic will that do any damage for  FSDT JKF V2?

 

Is it just me or is the night lighting and the way the textures are during that time just still terrible?

Do you mean the night lightning looks bad ? Can you post some screenshot please ? :)  By the way are you running any MOD like ENB or SweetFX ? If one of those setting are to well push i think your night texture will look very differente from others .

Hey there.  My sliders are very similar to yours.  My GA is a little higher though.

FSDT offers a fully functional demo which will work for about 5 minutes.  I promise you it will take less than 5 minutes to decide you want this airport.  When I installed v1, the frames were better than the default JFK. 

 

As far as running it with Aerosoft Manhattan X, for me, it runs pretty well as long as iI'm using DX10.

Be aware of OOM though. It's quite common in JFK area.

That is the problem i don't use DX10 :(. If it is better than the default scenery is worth the shot. 5 Minutes won't be enough for me to test my NGX with this scenery. Am going to just give it shot an see how well will it handle Manhattan X . By the way how is the night texture for this airport?

I just tried JFK v2 with Manhattan X at night with the NGX on DX9. JFK Looks great. As I approached Manhattan...OOM :(

Please note I'm using MyTraffic, AS2012, with UTX (providing the lights) and megascenery earth. I'm pushing it hard. Between JFKv2 and Manhattan X...I'd pick JFK. Manhattan X is more for VFR, especially for heli flights.

The only thing I have tested so far is a Canarsie approach to rwy 13L with the NGX. The lead-in lights (that I don't remember being in the previous version during daytime) allowed me to align very well, although I was not using any yoke, just keyboard. Also the visual scenery around the airport has improved. Further, the fps are slightly higher and I get no stutters when approaching the airport.

It's good overall, I get good FPS. A few issues here and there (nothing thats gonna make you change your mind though) but FSDT are working on a patch as we speak.

Am about to purchase the reason i haven't purchase is because at this moment right now am in a flight from KDFW to YBBN  15 hour flight . I have just woke up as i plan to do to get ready for landing in about a few hours . It is a real time flight http://flightaware.com/live/flight/QFA8/history/20130528/0255Z/KDFW/YBBN

 

 

Well i guest i might be good this is what am running : REXE textures only , Opus weather engine , UT2 Airline slider 30% GA 5% , UTX i have turn off night lights to give a chance to Experience X Night Lights . With these setting i have about 25 to 30 FPS in the VC of the NGX on other aircraft i have about 28 to 29 just bouncing up an down.

Am glad that the FPS are improved an no stutter when approaching sounds like i am buying this one. :)

 

It's good overall, I get good FPS. A few issues here and there (nothing thats gonna make you change your mind though) but FSDT are working on a patch as we speak.

Thanks Chris , guest i might just be find with what i have as for my setting at the moment. :)

For what it's worth, here is my tip to avoid OOM.

 

Run a registery checker (i use CC Cleaner) prior to running the Sim, then load your sim up, I fire up in this order:

 

1. AS2012

2. FSX (load from the desktop icon or start menu, not from AS2012)

3. TrackIR

 

When the sim is loaded select your aircraft, start airport and time/season then fly now.  Let the sim load up and once done exit flight sim.

 

Then reload as below:

 

1. FSX (Load from the AS2012 button)

2. When the sim is loaded select your aircraft, start airport and time/season then fly now. (You may need to reload TrackIR as it likes to disconnect on the second load up)

3. Go fly

 

I used to experience OOM's all the time when I loaded up and flew.  Now I'm not saying this is the fix but I will say that with reloading the sim a second time I don't get any OOM's.  I use ORBX, AS2012, TrackIR with EZDOK, All FlyTampa, FSDT, WingCreation, PacSim, FlightBeam, 29Palms airports.  PMDG, Carenado, Aerosoft, Milviz aircraft etc,  Traffic 30% with 10% GA, LOD 5.5 and sliders almost all to the right. 

 

Just give it a try and hopefully it works for you.
