I really want this scenery but I have to wait to see reviews. Toronto was a total bust on my system.

Let us know how it performs. As I said in my previous post, Toronto was a real dog on my system and many others. It's the only FT scenery I've ever had performance issues with.

YSSY performance is similar to Tortonto.


That being said, there is a low texture pack the help with OOM issues.

Are you using in with the Orbx Australia, or just with Orbx Global, Orbx Global + Vector, GEX, or default scenery?

 

I'm wonder how it will perform by itself using just Global or GEX and no Vector?

 

The reason I ask is because the combo of Orbx Australia or Vector with the airport could make it a little heavier than just the airport with Global/GEX.

I have no issues with FTX Australia. FPS are good. YBBN-YSSY in PMDG 737NGX with ASN did not yield a ping. So far so good, but results will vary based on system and settings.

At last the airport the airport I fly in and out of most often in real life.  In real life I find Terminal 1 (International) to be the pits as airport terminals go just a huge labyrinth  - so don't be late for the daily United flight to KSFO out of gate 63 it's a very long walk/run after you get through customs and security!  However none of this will stop me getting the Flytampa FSX version!

I purchased YSSY yesterday and did a quick tour with a chopper. As always FlyTampa does an outstanding job. Frames were high at about 40-50. I just took off as ACA33 CYVR-YSSY. I am mirroring the real life flight. I was not on the ball enough to use the same flight plan but I will for tomorrows flight. I have never mirrored a real life flight in parallel. It is quite a thrill to line up and take off at the same time. I used the LiveATC app and lined up with YVR tower clearance at the same time. I was amazed at how well the PMDG 777 follows the real life flight. Anyway I have waited a very long time for YSSY. Along with KSEA it has long been my most wanted airport in FS. If I am not mistaken ORBX got my hopes up few years ago with an announcement that they would develop Sydney and that they were in the early stages of development (please correct me if I am wrong about this) but then they announced that they would cease developing large airports. Then they backtracked once more and announce that they would be resuming development of large scale airports. The latest offering is Auckland, I think. Anyway I will report back on my long haul and FPS upon landing. I use ORBX Australia SP4 so it will be interesting. I have always had good success  with flights like KLAX-YMML and such. I would think that these older ORBX airports like YMML are harder on frame rates than FlyTampa's.

Where is the great performance everyone is seeing? I am running normal autogen, with Orbx Australia, zero AI traffic... and a default airplane. 20-25fps above the airport. So disappointing

i7 oced to 4ghz, nvidia titan, ssd, win 7 64bit

 

no ground traffic either. Maybe it is Orbx Au?

Myabe, if you have global vector it could be a good idea to disable ORBX AU. Performance sounds on par with ORBX YBBN and now I know why JV at ORBX refused to tackle YSSY

I found better performance by turning off 3D grass in YSSY and using Orbx AU

Dont know what you worrying  about  20  to 25 fps  stop looking  at the fps  and  fly, don't know why users  are so concerned about  fps

No worries for me...

Using Orbx Australia? What are your fsx.cfg tweaks? I run 8xAA and 2xSGSS

Well, given the flight is very long it has taken me awhile to report. After the realtime flight as I approached and flew the arrival STAR I received a sudden OOM. :Cry: No chime, just a sudden you have run out of memory error. I ran the configurator and lowered some of the settings and reloaded at the last autosave. I received a second OOM. I then reran the installer and installed the lower resolution option, loaded the sim a third time and once agin recived an OOM. I went to the FlyTampa forums and downloaded the reduced texture files and the installed and the fourth time and that was the ticket. I had smooth framerates with no issues using ORBX Australia SP4, PMDG 777, Active Sky, REX Soft clouds. I am currently repeating the flight to see how the new lower res textures work after a 14+ hr flight.  :Silly:   :Praying:
