Best European Payware Airports?

Recommended Posts

So far, I have been using the stock airports in P3D.  I am mastering the Airbus and would appreciate any suggestions for some super duper payware places to fly in and out of.

Only those that fully P3D compatible.

 

Flytampa - EKCH, LGAV, LOWW

T2G - EDDM, LTBA (even though is Asia formally speaking)

Aerosoft - LIRF

ORBX - ESSA

GAP - EDDF v3.0

UK2000 - the entire line, more recent airports adapted better for P3D

FSDT - LSZH, LSGG (oldies, but still goldies)

A2T - EFHK

In my opinion, FlyTampa's EKCH is one of the very best.

Looks interesting.  Just checked their website.  Does it come with any static aircraft at the gates?

The best I have seen so far with all new P3Dv3 features :

All of the above, and I'd also like to add Aerosoft's Oslo v2, which looks great for me in p3dv3.

 

My faves are without a doubt FT's EKCH and Orbx ESSA, get those two first!

Couldn't agree more, FT's EKCH is truly amazing!

 

A2T EFHK...need to check that one out myself because I'm really missing Aerosoft's EFHK in P3Dv3.

Ditto, I'm overdue in Vantaa, will check out A2T.

29Palms Samos LGSM, probably one of the most interesting approaches in Europe

I installed Aerosoft Helsinki the other day with a P3D version. No problems.

Ok but what version of P3D? For P3Dv3 I'm pretty sure the installation won't find your simulator and install the scenery correctly but I would love to be wrong!

Can't find this A2T EFHK scenery, anyone else?

Aerosoft Thessaloniki X (LGST) is a stunning scenery

It looks for P3DV2 but I just pointed to V3 root folder, and installed. Have checked it thoroughly, and all is as it should be. If using Orbx Global, you must make sure you set that in the configuration tool..

Thanks Julian.

 

In the past I messed around a lot to fork in scenery designed for previous versions but at this time I decided to only use scenery designed for the version I'm on.

 

Also I remember seeing reports over at Aerosoft's forums from people who did what you did having different kind of issues.

Maybe they tried to install to the Aerosoft folder. Why not give it a try Richard, worse thing that can happen is you have to uninstall it. I have all my AS airports installed. Only Paris CDG is one that does not work

Another vote for FT EKCH. Another one that in my opinion is right up there, DD EPWA. Beautifully done airport, and when paired with their Warsaw scenery, it makes for a very move region

Already using the impressive EFHK, I was underwhelmed by the much praised ENGM v2.

Yeah, maybe I give it a go later on. Currently I'm busy re-installing all my airports that are fully P3Dv3 compatible after doing a complete reinstallation of my PC.

 

As I remember it I don't think the issues reported had anything to do with the location where the scenery was installed but rather issues of a more technical nature such as the runway lighting etc not working correctly and IIRC also some weird looking objects in the scenery itself.

 

However like I said, if it indeed works fine in P3Dv3 no one would be happier than me :smile:

For me UK2000 EGLL was a no-go and I installled the Aerosoft one which resulted in 10 more fps compared to UK2000. I still like Aerosoft EHAM although it is very outdated. Luckily FT is also making a new version. As for Copenhagen.... You probably won't find anything better soon.

Let's hope FT Amsterdam will be better or at least on par, can't wait for that one  :good:

Aerosoft have almost crawled to a stop when it come to updating airports to V3. They seem to be focused on airports with there well known faulty airport controller eg LKPR. Prague would have been a great airport too , but the developer has decided to add textures via a very buggy dll.  It maybe working now, but it put me off purchasing.

Yeah, I know what you mean and as you say there has been lots of issues with APC. However in my case it actually works fine now since my last reinstallation of my PC.

 

What I did notice though in order for APC to work is that you must run P3D as admin since the APC module is set to be executed as admin by default after installation. So either you need to run P3D as admin as well or reconfigure APC so it won't be executed as admin.

 

I found any external modules you load for P3D must always be executed in the same way (admin vs non-admin) as you run P3D. Otherwise you will run into problems.

Thank you for that info Richard. Might explain why I have trouble with SODE

Fly Tampa's LGKR (Corfu) is one of the most beautiful scenery I've seen in my FS life.

The whole island is populated with detailed custom autogen without hard impact on frames rate.
