Hi Rich,

Nice shot.

 

Thanks just sharpening as I have the bloom up to much - I have noticed I dont really have to do much to my shots anymore and thats a good thing - the environment seems more alive in 3.2 and Taburet lights dont hurt either -

 

They are different than night environment but I like how they brighten everything up kind of like the old UTX V1 product was getting around 55 fps in PMDG with this lighting running no popping anymore or stutters I am a happy camper Mike

 

Oh yah I turn up saturation in p3d.cfg file i think its at 1.5 now as in menu system you can only go to 1.0

Installed 3.2, seems very good, a few very noticeable performance improvements ie autogen buildings draw distance and terrain reflections in water..

 

Has anyone tested floatplanes yet to see if the water=ultra excessive bouncing is still present please?

Hey Rich,

 

I'm loving the new P3D3.2, I cannot believe it looks even nicer and seems to perform even better!. Maybe Placebo, but who cares I'm loving it!. Rich, have you tried adding back the residential lighting yet to see if there has been any improvement in performance in 3.2 and night lighting?.

Maybe you missed this from the P3D changes page:  http://prepar3d.com/SDKv3/LearningCenter/what_is_new/new_v32.html

 

  • Extended max range of saturation slider in UI to 2

 

Missed that - thank you for the heads up - nice

Yes I put them all back in the one region I have and it was better at KBOS but still over the top really didnt need that much lighting so I moved the heavy hitter out until I found a nice balance - and yes the performance was better 

 

All residential areas in big cities is now your pc power not P3D

 

So that being said your burbs will not have the full amount after leaving city which would not be an issue anymore but you have to choose but still plenty of lighting

 

By the way I am using shade

 

 

Thanks all for the great comments

I removed REX Direct with Softclouds (did a complete P3D install) and I must say the default clouds look pretty good!

What is your LOD radius set to? I've set mine at Ultra but draw distance doesn't even come close to this Oo

Defaut 6.5 - have not tried to change it in new p3d 3.2 - thinking that still wont be possible

 

The taburet lights are making up for the lod - they dont seem to adhere to that setting they are visible at long distances on their own - nice

They're really nice indeed. P3D alone is a blast already.

No should not be any problems with REX installing - I have not tried in this new build of P3D as I just updated P3D - have not gotten around to doing a fresh install yet plan on it this weekend

Hi Rich,

The only thing missing from taburet lights (IMHO) would be something along the lines of selecting a percentage of lights from the various files for those of us that are at the limits of our setup. Between the two, I think I prefer taburet lights... However, I have to remove residential lighting.

Going to have to play and see what files give the best mix and still maintain smoothness. I don't mind the momentary lag when an airport loads, but it's once and for a 1/2 second if that. That I can tolerate with night views as seen above.

 

I also like Night Environment, but the distance limitation hurts the product, no fault of Chris and support is top notch... It's a P3D3 limitation. Maybe that will be removed in the future, would be nice if L/M gave us the ability to remove all rearward views and extend the front view.

Mike all you have to do is move the larger size residential files out to a dummy folder - works great as for user preference NE lights is a great product and would not persuade otherwise 

 

Taburet is not as structured and not a lot of control over it but I like its draw distance and has that old UTX V1 look which I sorely missed

Hey Rich,

 

I don't care to much about accurate street lighting myself, I do enjoy the extra distance I'm getting with taburet lights. Yeah, I'm going to play with the residential files to find the right mix. It may take some time, but I believe it will be worth it in the end.

Exactly if you play with moving some out you will be fine - wont have as much in burbs but still plenty - sort by file size gram about 4 or 5 of the heavy hitters - good to go
