LatinVFR KMIA V.2 is out

Recommended Posts

Version 2 is out and I'd be interested to hear what people think about it, especially those that have V.1 and now V.2! Been waiting for a good KMIA for a while now, and want some reassurance on pulling the trigger!

$6 for former owners is a nice deal for the amount of work they did (it's a new and completely different scenery).

 

But it is my opinion that V1 should have fixed a long time ago as the FSX version was not usable at all. It was a broken product before.

Did anyone try this out yet ? I was going to buy kmia when They first released it because it's an American Airlines hub but I heard people had such bad performance so I didn't buy it, But supposedly now it's a lot better any opinions?

I tried it out last night and it worked great. Might have had a slight FPS drop from normal but it wasn't anything bad. Not sure how it compares with frames from the last version as I didn't fly into MIA enough to really notice. Love the scenery though. I recommend it.

V2 is worlds better than the old 1.1 version.


Agree with that 100%!!

 

I was getting bad performance on v1 but v2 works great and looks a little better as well. On my new rig which is only running at 3.9ghz, 2133mhz RAM and a GTX670 2GB card, I am easily getting ~30 FPS on approach with the NGX, UT2 traffic at 70% and all the WOAI cargo packages installed at set at 100%.

 

Far cry from what I had using v1 where I would struggle to get 20 FPS with no AI, albeit that was an older system but worked fine with all my FSDT and FlightBeam airports.

 

The new version of KMIA is a keeper and looks and performs well. I think its safe to say that we can look past the performance problems of the old version and can now enjoy the new one.

I have it combined with Drezwiecki Design Miami City 2012, and it's working very well, compared to the original.  Latin VFR keeps improving and they are catching up to the big developers in terms of quality.

I have it running with Miami City 2012 and it's working great together (as had the earlier version).

 

KMIA v.2 is not only looking MUCH better than the first version, but on my machine, it runs faster and smoother as well. 

 

My only disappointment is that it is not DX10 compatible, so while it looks fantastic during the day, once dusk settles in, parts of the airport and some of the surrounding areas show up white.  Those of you running DX9 should have no problems.

 

But it is a definite keeper.

Wow, looks great.

 

Funny thing is, just landed at this airport for the first time and I was actually impressed with the default airport. Not any more after seeing the above, heh.

It is a lot better than V1 for sure.  I still can't figure out why the shadows of the aircraft you are flying won't show up sometimes.  Like the scenery around some gates and taxiways is raised just slightly and it displays over the shadow.  Anyone else caught this?

Well I did a very quick turn in my VRS superbug. I did not get a very good look at it. I need to do a proper tour and arrival. It will have to wait till the weekend I'm afraid. Frames seemed the same for the run. But the bug is not easy on frames either.

Just received an email notice that version 2.1 is available for download.   Not sure what it updates, though.  Downloading and installing shortly.

I rated their orignal KMIA at a 5.5/10, it was decent but didnt really peak my interest too much, then they released KSAN which almost knocked my socks off, now they release this....

 

Whoever they hired that is giving them this kind of overhaul needs to get a BIG RAISE. Before their recent releases they were compared against BluePrintSim and ImagineSim (more or less on par with ImagineSim). Now they are competing against Flightbeam, FlyTampa, and FSDreamTeam, way to go LatinVFR team!

 

BTW my new personal rating on KMIA from LatinVFR is now a 9/10 only being upstaged by ORBX 2cm detailed airports to which not even FlyTampa or FSDreamTeam have been able to beat.

I had elevation issues with the original V1 of MSE (the ones with clouds over the images).

moving jet ways?

 

Haven't had time to go check it out, but I would bet it has custom jetways that need AES to operate. That is just my guess though, I'll know for sure when I get there.

 

 

nobody else notices the aircraft shadows disappearing sometimes?

 

I'll see if I get that issue.

Just slew around the airport you will see it all over the airport at various places.  If it happens to you as well.

just updated to vol2.1 a definite must buy for 5 euros if you have the earlier edition.  Performance is greatly improved, just like the job they did on KSAN, San Diego, definitely moving up to develoipers like fs dreamteam and fly tampa, and flightbeam.  Graphicallly looks fine, and would definitely recommend it, major improvement, great work Ricardo!!!!!
