Some really good Comparison Videos

Recommended Posts

 

 

 

Both simply demonstrate the difference in coloring, atmospherics, autogen popup, texture loading, lighting, shadowing, etc. between FSX/1.4 and 2.0.

 

He's also got some stress test videos and a video of the Q400 out of Cairns in heavy weather that really shows off the water towards the end. 

He's using a 660ti if that interests you.

Thanks for sharing, these are quite interesting to look at and compare!

 

Cheers!

 

The biggest standout to me besides the atmospherics/lighting is the ability of 2.0 to keep up with autogen/texture loading. What an absolute visual game changer. 

 

When he's doing the jet video FSX is struggling so bad that entire blocks of autogen aren't loading and things look very sparse even close by. In 2.0 it stays sharp and fully loaded with little popup (I can't actually notice any but I'm sure there's some).

Nice!!! The difference between P3D and FSX/P3D 1.4 when it comes to autogen is incredible! BTW I wonder how this guy managed to do this…? Both flights are pretty much in sync! Excellent job! I also like the mood of 2.0 more: looks far more realistic.

FS Recorder I suspect ... freeware program with some nice features, a must for making videos.

What interests me is how the cloud placement is almost identical between the 2 sims regardless of fsrecorder

I noticed that too…!

He's probably using a saved flight file and replaying it in each sim.

 

This will result in identical cloud placement.

 

I also noticed the landclass in the Miami video is much better in P3D. Check out when he flies over the outlying islands. I asked him about it and will see if he's running an addon.

 

If not it appears LM did do some work to the landclass (these could be back from 1.0).

I still see autogen pop-ups in v2...too bad.

Yes, it certainly has to appear somewhere! But the effect is much better controlled and not so noticeable as in FSX.

 

And just imagine what will happen if we see a further increase of the LOD in later version with SLI/Crossfire systems...

It obviously also depends on your settings and the view. A view behind the aircraft usually shows you a more zoomed in view on the ground. And I do think the creator of the video didn't have the radius at the highest setting. When I fly I never notice autogen popping up.

Autogen popup seems to happen only way in the distance. And considering it is way more dense in P3Dv2, this is certainly a success story.

Yes, it pop s up further away, but on my PC it's so far away you can't really see it so that's why I think his setting isn't very high. In his video I still find it quite annoying: not so on my PC. I do have to say though that I usually fly NOT with visibility at unlimited: I like a lower visibility simply because it is more real. And in P3D that visibility looks more real too: a slightly blue haze in which you can see 'ghosts' of building in the distance. The first time I flew towards New York my jad dropped on the floor because I could see EVERY building already on the horizon. In FSX I never ever ever ever saw anything like it.

 

I almost feel like installing FSX so I can show the differences but that's a bit too much... ^_^

Save yourself the effort. These videos are convincing enough. :smile:

I still see autogen pop-ups in v2...too bad. We may still have some autogen popup in the distance with V2.0 but compared to FSX where you would have the runway in sight yet autogen would continuously continue to pop up when on short finals, I see absolutely no reason to complain about it. Thanks for sharing these comparisons.

Autogen will always have to load somehow. The fact that its now relegated to the outskirts of the LOD radius is night and day compared to FSX.

 

About halfway through the first video perfectly illustrates this.

I didn't see one. V2 is far improved in this area. It makes a huge difference

I watch the Q400 vid,

The Q400 is by far the most FPS friendly aircraft you could wish for, for a aircraft of that class. FPS are amazing.

But....

It looked like he had no VC shadows on, FPS are in the teens at best low 20's, the ground textures where a blurry mess. The sea looks so bad it made me lol. And your all impressed? come on guys It's going to be the future but stop looking at it though rose canny glasses.

The other one taking of from London city shows better auto gen but the ground textures are loading much better in 1.4 than 2.

 

LOD is a lot better, VC shadows are great. That's it at the moment. A good start.

I don't gain anything trying to convince you otherwise so I won't spend a lot of time doing so.

 

I'll simply point out that these comparison videos show way more then LOD and VC shadows.

 

You are also pointing out perceived bad performance at Orbx Cairns in the q400 which is a scenery bad on frames regardless in FSX. The blurriness around the airport are the sceneries lower res photo textures. He's also running full bad weather, water on ultra, full shadows, and recording it which will kill performance. You simply can't measure from a YouTube video. Too many variables that influence the output when using a recording program.

 

What you can do is try P3D for yourself for 60 days and return it if you don't like it.

It seems still on P3d2.0 the ground shadows/autogen shadows are OFF? so it doesn't show full potential difference.
