EireSim Shannon

Recommended Posts

Hello All;

Just wanted to know if any of you here own the EireSim Shannon Airport Addon? How is it? Does it work with StevesDX10 preview?

I have been thinking about getting this add-on airport for sometime now, but couldn't really find any recent information on it. Would be very happy if some of you could share your experience with it.

Many Thanks,

I have it.

 

I have most of the Eiresim airports. I have found Shannon to be less impressive than all of my others except one. However, even though I had that impression from the screenshots before buying it, I think that it was a value for money purchase for me.

 

Don't know about Steve's DX10 aspect.

Gary,

 

What base scenery do you use EireSim Shannon Ultimate with? Default? ORBx? PlayHorizon VFR GenX photoscenery? I have the latter installed, and I would like to know if this can be used as a base for the Shannon Ultimate scenery. I seem to recall someone on AVSIM telling me that he uses this package with a photoscenery base, so hopefully that person will see this thread!

I have Eiresim's Shannon, Kerry, Cork and Belfast installed over ORBX Ireland and Northern Ireland respectively (I don't have ORBX Global etc) and Alicante over FSX Default.

 

I have not encountered any problems between those airports and those two ORBX scenery products. The same applies to my Aerosoft Dublin and the UK2000 other Belfast airport.

I have Aerosoft Dublin and EireSim Cork working fine over the PlayHorizon VFR GenX Ireland photoscenery, and UK2000 Belfast Aldergrove Xtreme and EireSim Belfast City working fine with ORBx FTX Northern Ireland. I am more concerned with whether EireSim Shannon Ultimate can be used with the photoscenery in such a way that I can use the runways and taxiways over the base image without having to use the "default" base that is supplied with the airport. I am guessing not, but I would like to know for sure.

Hello Gary;

Thank you for your answer. One last question: How is the performance/ frame rate of EINN?

Many Thanks once again,

 

Best,

I tried Shannon last night using the Aerosoft Twin Otter.

 

Taxiing out, I had a couple of micro stutters but after that everything was okay so far as performance/frame rate was concerned.

the  problem I have found with EINN is, as I fly B777 runaway 24 is the only one I can use but on taxing out to  24 from gate 30 I strike an  invisible object which tells me  building crash and ends my flight  much  to my  dismay. Anyone else have this problem

Hello Patrico;

Thank you for your feedback. I'm still undecided about getting it, even thought its 16 Euros.  Do you use Orbx scenery with it?

Hello;

I haven't gotten the Shannon Airport yet. I have just purchased the Orbx FTX Ireland. My next step is to buy the Shannon Airport. As soon as I will get it, I will test it out and will let you know.

Maybe you can try to disable object collision in the FSX menu? Or you already have?

Where do you buy Eiresim products - direct from Eiresim or from a reseller like Simmarket?

The excl-VAT prices at Simmarket and Eiresim are basically the same.

 

I have bought some Eiresim products at both places.

 

I prefer to buy directly from a developer if possible. The only problem in that regard at Eiresim is that although for each product prices incl VAT and excl VAT are given, when the purchase button is clicked and you are taken to PayPal, it is only the higher incl VAT price which is shown and charged.

 

On the Eiresim Forum, Terry Smith acknowledges this happens but say if non-VAT customers contact his by email, he will organise a refund of the VAT component. I sent an email immediately after making a purchase and within an hour of so (quick enough making allowance for the time zones between opposite side of the world), Terry sent an email confirming he had made arrangements for a PayPal adjustment in my price. I could not fault the service I got from him.

Hello;

For those who are still interested, Shannon works great with FTX Ireland, FTX Global, Vector and OpenLC, No issues. With FSX Steam and regular- no problems. With DX10  fixer, minor issues with taxi lights next to the terminal. They appear as squares. I have contacted Terry, but no response from him yet. Anyone know a workaround? As far as FPS, they are great. No loss of performance and or stutters.
