"PMDG-Friendly" KIAD Scenery or AFCAD

Recommended Posts

I am not seeking a PMDG endorsement for an upgraded Washington Dulles airport file. I am merely looking for an upgrade that doesn't kill the FPS and/or unnecessarily increase the VAS usage woes in the PMDG experience.

 

I know there are several payware (Blueprint, Flightbeam, et. al.), but I also see some AFCADs that purport to add the "center" runways. 

 

Anyone comfortable with advising me? Or, perhaps sending me a PM with a suggestion?

 

Any and all suggestions welcome.

 

Thanks in advance!

I use FlightBeam. It's what I used in Tutorial #1.5 and I don't have any issues if I don't max out my sliders.

 

I think I just used Ray Smith's BGL file ("AFCAD") prior to that.

Yes, I agree, Flightbeam is the biz. I also had the Blueprint version long long ago,but it looks as if the airport is dead with no-one at home.

Add me to the FlightBeam crowd. Easily some of the smoothest and VAS-friendly sceneries on my computer, with many aircraft, including PMDG. Definitely wish some other airports were as system-friendly.

 

However, I do also balance tweak my system and prefer smoothness and reasonable anti-aliasing over max autogen and HD textures full of AI traffic.

Thanks, all. Your suggestions and endorsements are appreciated!

 

I've just installed the Flightbeam, but didn't see much of it as i just left it. I'll check it out in more detail later and see how it looks on the return flight  B) .

Hi Tino,

 

No problems so far, but I'm sure I've just scratched the surface. 

 

I'll keep your forums in mind in the event there are problems. I'm not anticipating any, but thanks just the same
