P3D version looks good

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to say I installed the P3D version tonight. Only had time to do a flight in a snow storm and I must say I really like the effects. I had no issues with the install and so far so good with the product.

 

Thanx!

Umm. I may need to do do some tweaking. Precip now really kills my performance. More than using default it seems. May just be a fluke.

I had no performance issues with the snow. I'll have to check rain.

How does it compare to the fsx version? That's what I've been using with P3D...haven't yet had a chance to download the update...comments so far?

P3D has a major issue with texture loading, maximum LOD is 6.5 I think, and due to DX11 it acts like LOD is 4.5. I've gone back to FSX due to this, couldnt stand the blurry texture loading.

 I had no texture loading issues, no blurries. Other than visual there was nothing different from my regular P3D.

I thought that I read somewhere that the rain effect is not active in P3d in the present version (1.20). I could be wrong though.

Rain (as precipitation) is active - rain effects ( wheel spray, etc) are not if I understand correctly.
