Recommended Posts

It's so busy....I can't download it.  Maybe tomorrow.  A real "MUST HAVE" in my opinion.  Wow.

What gives with the major increase in price over the other regions ?  Northern California is about the same size, I assume same level of detail yet half the price ?

Ok got it, might have to wait for the next sale, have not really been flying SoCal lately and its still pretty good with Global & Vector (plus my old LC).

None yet since they just released it. They never make airports that require a region prior to a region being released.

 

KPSP is classified as a Global airport, meaning that it doesn't require a region to work properly. Really any of the Global airports don't even need Global to be installed even though it's listed as a requirement. Global is only a requirem5for the edges of the Global airports to blend better where they end.

Ditto. I can wait until the summer sale.

There is no price increase. Its the normal price for a new region

This scenery will probably be a nice boost for Pilot Edge traffic.

I did a few flights in the RA Lancair and my fps were in the low 20's around the Los Angeles area without AI traffic. My fps drops into the teens in some areas at dusk.

 

With LatinVFR's KSAN & KSNA enabled, fps were in the low 20s. Las Vegas was a little better.

 

So far I'm not happy with the performance but the day textures and AG look very nice.

Ugh that's bad for me - I was looking forward to this for pilot edge

 

Maybe it's marinas and cranes like NorCal causing the drop?

I disabled all the features in the config and I still had poor performance in FSX. Maybe this scenery was designed for P3D v3.

 

I get better fps in Norther Cal.

 

I enabled FSDT KLAX and fps dropped to the teens. FSDT KLAS was a little better. This region for me is a regretful purchase.

Mmmm.. Maybe i'd have to wait a bit for this. My PC is very modest...

I purchased NCA this summer sale, and did not installed it yet.

I think I'll hold off for awhile, love NCA but I get OOM's when flying the Flight 1 King Air even with things turned down, so when I update from P3D v2.4 to v3.1 I'll pick it up! Looks very nice though :smile:

There is no price increase. Its the same price for a new release region.

I had major concerns that the high concentration of urban autogen mixed with the numerous freeware and payware airports in the area would result in bad fps and/or OOMs. I'd hate to see the entire LA Basin turn into the performance equivalent of FTX PNW's Seattle area, which has become a no-fly zone for me just due to the performance issues. 

 

Was really looking forward to this scenery since I live in Southern California. After waiting so long for such a comprehensive scenery package, I'll probably end up skipping it now. Bummer.

I've been flying in it...and it is outstanding!   I do suggest though, that you create a default flight from the region, with your favorite airport...and then save that flight. Drop out of the sim...FSX or P3D...and then bring the sim back. That way, you will have a VAS load-in of only that airport and South Cal as the region...and nothing still in the VAS from coming from any other region, scenery, whatever to a location in South Cal.   This scenery is immensly populated with even the kitchen sink!  What they have done for road traffic is phenomenal. I had to drop down to 15 on the slider..and still the roads are snapping alive!  

 

BTW, I am getting even into the 80/90's in FPS (P3D v2.4)  within this scenery...and that is with the slider flat out, bang right!

My mean FPS average is about 38-55 FPS over most of where I have flown...

 

Orbx...one heck of a regional scenery....wow....

The scenery is really nice. It's vintage ORBX, but this scenery will do much better in P3D v3 as it frees up VAS along the route. If you take a look at the preview pics, they were mainly p3d. I probably should have waited for FTX USA LC.

I dropped autogen down to normal. Makes a big difference in fps but there is still lots of trees and buildings
