That looks very nice! I would like to know how it performs fps wise compared to v2.

The real question is vas. London is always a nightmare when it comes to vas usage. Garry says that version 3 includes 80 percent more data than ver2 -for me that sounds pretty scarry when i consider that i am already very close to the 4gb limit with the 777x abd version 2...

I have just taken the PMDG 777 for a quick spin and everything is fine, it takes a hit with AI but you have to expect that. I'd say performance wise it is pretty comparable to V2. The only downside so far is that AES has not yet been updated to support it.

With a 40% discount for V2 owners Garry gets my money without question. Though with today being the wife's birthday he may have to wait until tomorrow ;-)

Being a v2 owner, I'm tempted to upgrade to v3. But on my system v2 is quite on the edge as to what my system can handle.

Would be grateful if anyone can report on fps and VAS of v3 compared to v2.

Does anyone have screenshots or video of this V3 working in P3DV2.x?

 

Their web site pictures look terrible: http://www.uk2000scenery.com/newsite/My_Homepage_Files/Download/ll16.jpg lots of bleed thru on the ground textures, dark areas that shouldn't be etc. etc. 

 

I have V2 that I use in FSX, but if V3 works in P3DV2.x and doesn't have those issues, I'll upgrade.

 

Thanks, Rob.

I really like the performance and the level of detail. However  I spotting some bugs. They are either bugs or something is wrong with my settings.

 

Some gates such as gate 104, 102, 105, 109 and some gates on terminal 2 and 3 are missing. Some gates are misaligned especially the ones on Terminal 4. The gates are not connected to the building. Also terminal 3 gates 303, and 305 have only single gates, when in real world they are triple gates. This could be done intentionally by the developer. Some of the gates in terminal 2 have their gate signs hovering in mid air.

 

I have tried all max graphic scenery setting. I have the static AI turned on in options. 

I am not sure what else to do.

Can't see anything wrong in the picture you've linked to, apart from general anti-aliasing. Looks exactly like it does in Google Earth.

just took off on 777 to SFO, it feels better on the frames than v2 (v2 had around 13 in vc now i have 18 LOL) , but also i have a ton of AI around Heathrow. looks nice.

Dave, you are correct, it does look like that in Google and from other real world pictures.  My apologies.

 

Cheers, Rob

Looks really good will definitely get it, especially at 40% off. Someone needs to show them how to take screen shots though, talk about "Jaggies", AA anyone.

I was just going to say....  marketing shots without AA?!?  Yuck... nothing says don't buy more than that (to me)

 

Otherwise product looks good.

Ryan,

UK 2000 have always done this, basically they show what the lowest denominator customer will see in their Sim.

It's kind of refreshing to see a product marketed in this way, way more honest than a bunch of photoshopped screenshots, trust me it will look much better on your rig.

Agree. I am so over shopped screenshots with all the wide angle/HDR/Bloom/ENB stuff going on, with the sim paused and Autogen ratcheted up to maximum.

Post directly at Gary's forum: http://www.uk2000scenery.org/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=e8331b9dc8b7595e67d304ee303ad952&board=322.0

He is usually very quick with replies.

 

Gary is suggesting that this indicates my fsx scenery complexity is set to below normal. 

However, I have already set the complexity to extremely high. I am still getting the same result. I am not sure how else I can increase the scenery complexity to high.

I agree with honest marketing and appreciate it, however those screen shots will not look that bad on my system. Maybe it would be a better marketing strategy to show both low and high end screen shots. Just saying.

 

BTW, PS screenies is a crime in  my opinion as far as marketing goes.

Would love to see some screenshots with antialiasing, if anyone has any yet, especially of the renovated/modified terminal structures that have changed since V2.

Kyle,

 

I am a beta tester for UK2000, and I can assure you that the scenery looks a lot better on my PC than in the screenshots on the UK2000 website. I have mentioned to Gary in the past that he should use screenshots with AA enabled, but (like the poster above has indicated) he probably wants to show how the scenery looks for someone with a lower end PC.

 

I will try and provide links to some screenshots shortly.
