Well done LM! P3d2.5 is awesome!

Recommended Posts

 
I am really enjoying version 2.5 - P3D is coming along very nicely and I am so pleased to be part of this journey.
 
Colors have become more vivid, and compared to the bland coloring in the initial versions, this is a totally new world. The lighting at dawn and sunset is much improved. And now daylight feels like daylikt, unlike the gloomy winther daylight of v2.4.
 
And even with quite high settings my dear PMDG 777, performance is quite smooth.
 
Now I am just waiting for ORBX compatibility.
And at some point I Really wished LM would enhance the precipitation effects - the snow and rain looks quite horrible!
 
However, I dont wanna end on a negative note - prepar3d v2.5 is amazing! Well done LM!
 
Enclosed a few screens, all v2.5 vanilla except the one with ORBX Norway which is from v2.4

Great shots Thomas. BTW, you can get improved rain/snow effects in P3D through PrecipitFX.

Just tried v 2.5, for the first time, after v2.4, very pleased, even on my modest rig, just awaiting Orbx and ASN now!

 

Cheers,

Yes Phillip, the 777 behaves very well in P3D. Generally between 20-30 FPS with high settings (so a big penalty compared to less demanding aircraft, but still super flyable). If I turn the settings down a few notches I can maintain 30 fps. And I have never had a OOM or crash, something thats a big problem for me with FSX Steam.

The shadows are a nice bonus too

 

Awesome shots dude. :)

 

Does the 777 work good in 2.5 for you?

Very nice pics Thomas,  thanks for sharing 

 

 


Yes PrecipitFX is the answer and for $13.00 USD you can't want for more

Is that the same thing as Immersion,  Rain and smoke effects?   Never used it, must try it

Ok, also after a long flight (8 hours or more), still no OOM / problem?

Dont have the time or patience for 8 hours flights..prefer to keep the flights short and sweet even with the 777. But no OOM within 2 hours at least. That was definately not posible with FSX on high to max settings

Agreed!  2.5 has been the best update to date.  Crisp clear graphics, smooth performance and great HDR with Rob's tweaks!  Awesome!

Just did 7.5 hour flight, CYYZ-EDDM, with the PMDG777 in 2.5, no addons besides the 777. And no OOM.

This sounds promising.

 

Also no Active Sky Next? (Sorry for this questions, but I want to sort out every source of OOM :))

I agree.  It also seems to load more quickly and, when changing aircraft, the menu is faster as well.  Plus, it's hard to define, but everything seems to look a little better.  The re-install wasn't quite as bad as I expected although I'm not quite done yet!

Are you running Windows 7 or Windows 8 with your setup? I'm thinking of doing a full re-install of everything for P3D 2.5. Maybe it's a good opportunity to move to Windows 8 if P3D runs better under it?

No, no ASN as its not compatible with P3d 2.5 yet. Just vanilla p3d with the pmdg 777. No need to apologize for the questions, more than happy to answer

So we still need to make the HDR mods that Rob has posted for v2.4, or did they get incorporated into v2.5?

 

Thanks

Nice SS given there Standard P3D

 

Looks like you need to start working on programming the 777. 

 

Did you install Norway into 2.5?

 

Did you turn off the FO side or on second screen?
