P3D v2.3 vs. XPX 10.30b8 round II, LSZA

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

As promised in the first comparison thread (http://forum.avsim.net/topic/449238-p3d-v23-vs-xpx-1030b8-ksna-to-kcno/), here is a row of pics taken on a pattern flight at Lugano Airport in Switzerland in the late afternoon (5:30pm, August 14th). First, I flew A2A´s Cherokee in P3D v2.3 (FTX Global and REX4 Texture Direct are installed), thereafter Carenado´s Stationair was flown around LSZA in XPX (with OSM Europe + autogen, HD Mesh v2, Treelines and Farms v2, SkyMAXX Pro v2 with all options ckecked, UrbanMAXX 3D, MaxxFX and Dataref Editor).

Again, I tried to set the weather to the same values in the manual weather setup of both sims, according to the most recent METAR for Lugano Airport at that time.

I enjoyed both flights, but this time, I had a favourite! ;-)

Both look great! I use P3D because of familiarity and compatibility but I think that it's clear now that we actually have two successors for FSX and simmers have no need to fear an end to their hobby or cling to FSX. I use my FSX disks as drink coasters!

Both sims looking great! :) I myself prefer X-plane but also sometimes like to hop and make a fun flight in prepar3d ;)

You are right guys! I love them both as well!

The 2.3 update for P3D brought some serious performance gain for me, which is a great thing!

I have both, but prefer X Plane. Just wish we could get FSDT, Flight Beam and Latin VFR to convert their airports and make some cityscapes for the large US cities.

Wow, these are the next two top of the line flight sims. Kind of hard to compare the two since they're both so powerful and have so much potential. I think both will do very well in the future.
