Night Lighting - Taburet or Night Environment?

Recommended Posts

Hi - Could anyone give me some up to date insights on why I might choose Taburet vs Night Environment to spruce up my night flying on P3D v3.2?

 

I see lots of commentary and videos about how nice NE is, but Taburet seems to have far far more coverage available.

That aside, say you were choosing a region that is covered by both.

 

Does anyone have any comments either way on why/what they prefer?

 

Thank you in advance for anything you care to share!

Very simple : if NE has the country you want choose that.

If it isn't available check the NE forum for their roadmap of developments.

 

If your country is not available and won't be for quiet some time or not at all , choose another option...

 

Taburet nightlighting is not bad at all , but no match for NE .

Night Environment all the way. It transforms night flying completely. I just posted this shot in another thread:

I think that speaks for itself!

@Stufer: Have you used Taburet?

Hi irrics, no I've never used it so can't compare between the two. I was just using OrbX's night lighting which I think is very good at low level but as you get higher you can't see it further out. NE was the perfect solution for me - at least in the areas I fly in mostly: Western Europe.

Appreciating the comments from all...

 

Would likely go NE in a heartbeat, but I mainly fly Western USA and all they have here is California.  :-(

This is exactly my problem as well.  It's an interesting product but there just isn't enough coverage in the US for me to take it seriously.  I've been watching for a little while now and they just don't seem to be making any progress on US coverage.  If they were releasing steady updates then I might feel differently.  But at the rate they're going I feel like it could be years before they have full coverage for the US.

 

I was very patient while MSE rolled out new states because they were very consistent and reliable with new updates every few weeks.  I would love to know what to expect from NE in terms of US coverage but since I don't I'm probably going to go ahead and buy the entire lot from Taburet.

Right there with you Neal

Going to buy & try the Taburet for Washington State (and surrounding states) tonight.

 

Ultimately, availability matters and the progress on NE has been suuuuuper slow on the USA regions (based upon the different forums I've looked at anyways)

Might want to just wait a short time and see what turns up..../

Just tried my first night lights, Taburet 3D for California and Nevada. Big improvement over the dull stock ORBX lights but can't compare to NE for the same area. Comparison shots of someone having both would be appreciated..

Thanks for the response Chris.

Not to press you, but is there a timeline along the lines of "Continental USA covered by end of 2016"? or something?

 

At some point, "patience" can just be too far in the future unfortunately, obviously..

i cannot disclose much of that information at this point in time,
i can though assure you NA will be fully covered with NE's sparkling lights long before end of 2016 :hi:

i know what you mean with patience; every little issue that came up over time is being addressed,
it does takes time to go around and for things to materialize,

in a way patience and loyalty goes both ways,
it is a learning curve for everyone involved; our customers supporting our work; our publisher and our dev team,
we do our best to always put our customer needs first; we cared throughout the past two years to each customer personally if needed,
we carried over all our original customers to each updated version of our work; or any platforms updates;
including supporting new platforms and sims along the way without a single extra charges what so ever,

Hello to everybody.I have several products NE,mainly Western Europe.

Flights to my move to the US, so definitely get one NE Florida and more ... :wink: It's worth waiting on other areas that are in development ....

Support from the NE works great .... If a problem is to solve it very quickly .. That you as a customer very much appreciate ...

high resolution photoreal scenery is nice during daytime but is bad at night (talking about the megascenery stuff here).  am i correct to understand that night environment addon will render correctly over the photoreal stuff and look really nice?

Another troop singing the Night Environment song. Tried Taburet and for my taste and system, Night Environment wins by a mile. They're slower than the competitor but I'm fine with that seeing as I fly mainly in Europe and Asia and they haven't yet covered an extensive amount so perfectly okay waiting for them to get to it. Can't beat the support either.

Thank you Manny :smile:

 

Night Environment is by design made to seamlessly give any daytime Photoreal a perfect night layer with our hand crafted Photoreal Night textures,

that is a statewide full Photoreal nightmap layer we include with every Night Environment region on top of our 3D lights! the layer matches our 3D lights above 100%

 

the combined visuals is our unique signature you will find very distinctive in work many have try to replicate our night visuals,

there are no shortcuts to get the perfect visuals as Night Environment presents; unfortunately that’s not an easy task,

as you imagined rendering day or night Photoreal is very much the same process wise,

we insist on doing it right with no shortcuts; even if it takes bit longer,

so each title is always the same, you can expect connecting states to blend seamlessly and always have consistent night visuals across all titles

we answer and explain further about Night Environment and what makes us different than the rest here

http://forums.nightenvironment.com/forum/5-frequently-asked-questions-faq/

 

many have dares and compared real world night shoots with our work and were stunned to find the similarities between what they see with Night Environment vs real life visuals

Well it was more ? than pipe, meant that theres a lot of movement in the sim world what with DTG new offerings (they are supposed to be releasing details of new sim scenery this week) and RobA saying P3D 64 bit is quite close, plus both NE and Taburet have quite an extensive list of products already so it isnt surprising that either of them have things on development.

I am interested in trying NE out (P3Dv3.2) by buying Denmark and Sweden but are they only version 1.0 from simmarket ?

 

Should i wait then or buy Germany instead?

 

Thanks

Hii Michael, it’s really up to you there,
all v1.0 will work as well in P3D,

if you secure your v1.0 regions now; they will eventually be updated to v1.71 at current v1.0 price :smile:
you will get a new installer then and will be able to have these included in NEXM with all the rest

Then is just a bit more tricky to install i guess than version 1.71? 

 

Well i might just jump on board but i noticed that no one is mentioning VAS and FPS impact ?

 

 

Thanks
