Mega Airport Berlin Brandenburg released

Recommended Posts

Just released today and looking quite impressive! My finger was hovering over the purchase button when I first saw this but I decided to hesitate when I noticed that the install size for this was 3.2GB which is 1.2GB more than Mega Airport Dublin. I think I might just wait and see some reviews on this specifically with regard to performance (I am certain that visually it will be a masterpiece!) as flying one of my favourite aircraft (the PMDG 777) into Dublin pushes my VAS usage up into the high 3s and I just wonder whether Mega Brandenburg (given it's install size) might push it above the dreaded 4 particularly if flying there from another detailed airport! Hesitate as I may now however, I am sure it will only be a matter of time before I give in to the overwhelming temptation to buy it!!

The real airport costs an insane amount of money while the virtual one costs an insane amount of hard disk and virtual address space. Running this one must be like opening a can of cola or beer. You don't know if it will explode or not.

 

 

Obligatory BER joke: But at least this one got finished in a reasonable amount of time!

29Palms is great. The performance will be great i guess. Unfortunately there is no try before buy version like FSDT or FlightBeam :/.

This makes FSX a lot more unrealistic you know? The real airport will not be opened before 2016...

Please check this: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarcasm

 

If not clear, read up on the BER project history. If still not clear, refer to the history of almost every large building project in Berlin.

 

But I realize one should not use sarcasm or irony on the net, someone will always take it at face value...

The problem might just be that sarcasm is sometimes a bit hard to detect in written language, I wasn't totally sure about how your first post was meant, either. -_-

I'd be very interested in the performance of that airport, as it would fit very well into my short haul routes out of Vienna (another one of those unrealistic airports by the time it was released, btw :P) and Innsbruck.

Ok I'll admit that this one might be more or less hard to detect, depending on whether you're from Germany and following the farce that this airport building project is turning out to be - or not.

So I'll add an official sarcasm-detection hint:  ;-)

Anyone tested it in DX10 with the Fixer? How is the performance compared to Aerosoft Munich? 

Yeah I know the questions are specific, but these are important aspects before I grab my credit card.  ^_^

I've just loaded this up with 2048 textures, pmdg T7, asn etc and the performance is amazing.

 

Will fly Vienna, Berlin tomorrow when I've got some more time.

Have bought it also and had a flight into BER from FRA today. I confirm that the performance here is great and the VAS usage of BER is only about 300 (that is with fairly light settings on the configurator that comes with it) despite the fact that it is a considerably larger addon than Mega Dublin!

Oh, boy... one more thing for my "to-buy" list, alongside Dublin's airport, Gary's new Heathrow, the upcoming PMDG 777-300ER and ASN. 

 

...and there goes my money.  :P

I was fortunate to be on the beta for this scenery and one thing I did extensively was test the VAS usage with each build.

 

It is very easy on VAS in comparison to some other Mega Airports.

I cannot confirm. I had a flight from FRA to EPKK two days ago and they lost my luggage (Lufthansa ftw!!!) so performance was bad! Wait... It was not fsx but real... Well this kind of quality causes problems with defining what's the reality and what's not ;) amazing job with this airport!!!

at my airline we are loving the farce belin is causing, as the germans are having to compensate us for delay of opening BER 

 

I heard at one point its costing them a million euros a day just to keep the lights on...

I'll wait for the real one to open.  I like the developer's scenery a lot, but I also want realism.

I also want realism.

 

There is nothing in this addon to stop you from it.

 

Everything looks like in reality and all the buildings are already there in RW.

Plus the addon contains the current Schonefeld airport with active operations.

You can choose such a scenario in the product's configuration tool and fly from/to Schonefeld.

 

How much more real can one get? :wink:

I have no issues at all with AES in DX10 with the fixer. Where did you hear that ? Never had an issue.

 

It has issues with P3D, but certainly not DX10.

When it was realeased, some of the vechiles used to have white textures on dx10 without the fixer. Ill have a look cheers for that.
