No offense to P3d guys but no sim to my knowledge even comes closer to XPX in terms of scenery.

 

Absolutely stunning.

 

It is one of the best shots i have seen.

 

BTW which bird is that ?

Hey thanks, not now as on a budget for a laptop just for XPX :)

 

I can just imagine the video of that flight.  It would truly be unbelievable even by real world pilots :) 

 

 What config ? Are you also using RTH ? and which Pre-set ? I am also trying to use ground shadows in Data-ref but if it affects or no i have no clue as yet.

 

 Trying to create a similar shot of Innsbruck.  But I use only free clouds

I agree. So what's the negative to x-plane? Lack of major developers wanting to use it?

 

Depends on what you call negavity.

 

For me it's the. Lack of. Airports / bad AI and no decent ATC.

I have XPX and a number of addon aircraft. The two biggest deficiencies for me are the lack of AI traffic and ATC. Those are things (like FSX) that will have to be addressed by third party developers. There are actually some very nice freeware airports available.

X-Plane may lack some things that folks like but it more than makes up for that lack with what it does have once people give it enough of a chance.

There are certainly things lacking - for me the lack of seasonal textures is about to get really galling as we move towards Autumn / Winter in the northern hemisphere. But the good really outweighs the bad for me:)

Yes, using RTH preset 4 I think or a slightly tweaked 3. Also SMP2 for the clouds.

No Ai / ATC or lack of airpprts has not made me stop flying in xpx. Heck I enjoy it so much that I fly it even at 15 fps.

Is it optimised to perform better then fsx ?

 

 

LOL lets not talk about Fsx :) especially performance.

Great shots...wow...but I have a request...

 

for the next set of graphic quality such as these....could you please also have up, the FPS counter, so I can compare what you have...to your system-FPS generated, to my system. That would be most helpful. Thanks! 

 

On my system, LOWI and surroundings gives me about 24 FPS.  I think XPX.30 can be a winner on most systems today....for mine is over 4 years old!

It is optimised to run on hardware as good as can be had and take advantage of whatever you can give it, the code is tight.  My setup is nothing to write home about but can maintain 26-30fps in all situations on high settings that look really well. That might not sound like a lot but the fluidity at that has to be seen to be believed. Anyone I know that flies XP for a while gave up on the others entirely, it's that good with a little effort to make it so as it doesn't look as good out of the box as it can be made to look. It's rock solid performance wise with none of the crashes or ooms that are part and parcel of the others. There simply is no like.
