It is in Orbx PNW area.  Adding airports to Orbx FTX regions is asking for Vas hell.  Unless you like that area without FTX, then KPDX will make sense.  Even I would love to see it but I assume it is all based on demand for it from other simmers.

Is the T2G KSEA any good? how is it VAS consumption?  The reason I am asking is that I hardly ever see sceenshots of that airport on here.

 

i know for me flying a big heavy for FSDT CYVR on top of Orbx PNW is pushing the limits of my sim.

I've had no problems with T2G KSEA.

 

I remember for the longest time that no one would touch KSEA because of the way MS had designed the area, in FSX anyway.

 

Well, T2G did it and did a great job as well.

Especially adding 3rd party payware airports to ORBX Southern California. Definitely killer. Worse area ever in terms of performance. :(

Most interesting.  A perspective I have not heard before.  What a bummer for me, considering that I live in Portland.

Great to know about T2G,  I will have to look into this

Yeah, there is some major issues in this area.  I am waiting till these issues are resolved - and only then I will get the flightbeam's KSFO.

Don't get me wrong, Orbx PNW is my fav must have FTX region to begin with period.  KPDX area is actually fine on VAS.  It is going to KSEA that area is somewhat badly designed by MS...but with LM getting the code, they can fix it.  I just don't know why it has been done.

 

Adding heavy airports in PNW and flying within that area specificially really pushes up VAS consumption.

No problems here with Orbx PNW and T2G KSEA, or any region for that matter.  I have NCA and KSFOHD with no issues, even SCA and FSDT KLAX are problem free.

 

I keep hearing bad things about FTX regions and I guess it depends on your system.  I haven't had a VAS issue in months, full disclosure requires that I do turn off some photo scenery bgls.

I am using the old FS9 KPDX from Vauchez in my P3D V3.3.5   LOL :)

 

I made the runway look pretty decent in my previous PC. I forgot what I had to do to get it working reasonably well (I did not use the fixer that's out there since I would lose the runway texture of Vouchez if I had used the "fixer")

I really miss Vouchez! I wish he was still around making his amazing sceneries...  Vouchez was the only one who I can say was making the best sceneries along with Fly Tampa.

Wow,

 

I am shocked that you were able to do this.  Amazing!!!.  What happened to Vauchez.  Never heard of that developer/company?

He put out two amazing scenery for FS9.  ITs not just one airport..its a cluster of airports and called a Zone!. Usually one big airport with 3 or 4 satellite Orbx like small airports around the big one. Very well priced too.. around $34 bucks.. Today this would cost around $150 bucks using Orbx pricing. This was my flagship scenery to show off my FS9 Sim world! :) AND NO OOMs!

FZ01 =  KPVD + Airports around Rhode Island Providence airport

 

 

FZ02 = KPDX + other airports around it

Wish I could get THAT into P3D!

If you already own Flightzone 02 , google search for "FSX FLIGHTZONE02 PORTLAND SCENERY PATCH" 

 

And try it in P3D. ITs for FSX..but it could work for P3D

Not exactly sure.. He had promised us if we bought the Portland Flight zone02 scenery for FS9 (This was the time FSX was talked about being released)  he would give us the upgrade scenery for the  upcoming FSX free of charge.  But in FSX the earth became round (globe) unlike FS9 where it was flat.. which broke a lot of add on scenery.... since the runway has to bend to the curvature of the globe, not sure how much he would have had to redo his airports..

 

Not sure if that had anything to do with it.. or could be some personal reasons..

This is how it now looks in P3D V3.3.5. This area is definitely worth redoing for P3D... I don't mean just a single airport for KPDX..but the entire zone...

I for one would love to see the airport done, but I don't need the entire area redone, just some of the key features added for the visual approaches.

Orbx has freeware for the Portland area. Looks quite nice.

Also using FTX PNW , NCA,SCA with T2G-KSEA , FSDT -KLAX, CYVR, FB KSFOHD, LVFR KSNA , almost without any issues at all.

 

Issue : KLAX using NGX and the T7 is done only with OPENLCNA regarding FPS and VAS .

Now that's good news. 

 

I'm really surprised that PDX has slipped by all these years without someone tackling it.

There is a new PDX in the AVSIM Library.
