Well some of us went over to the Aerosoft Forums a while ago and made great play of the virtues of FS9.  

About this release, someone commented:

"Wow. That's a stunner. Good for the FS9 community though.

I'm curious to see how the sales add up. "

And Mathijs Kok replied:

"Us as well. It will be a stand alone product for 16.20€ (plus vat when applicable)."

 

Y'all know what to do... think I'll buy 2 copies :)

I'm pleasantly surprised to hear this. I had the impression that Aerosoft had given up on FS9 a long time ago... I will be checking it out

Cheers

Aerosoft had given up on FS9 a long time ago

 

I like to think that the fact that I keep posting videos of the NEW Fs9 sceneries (that are not Aerosoft) I keep buying in their forums might have had something to do with it. :BigGrin:

 

I'm looking forward to EDDF....havent flown there in ages. 

 

A pity Fly Tampa are deaf to FS9 pilots. (SYD)  :p0503:

 

Edit: Just had a look at some FSX pics of EDDFv2. I was not THAT impressed....let's hope Aerosoft do not balls up the conversion.  :Nerd:

There are new FS9 pics up at Aerosoft. Looks better than it does in FSX (no surprise there  :BigGrin: )

 

http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/114758-mega-airport-frankfurt-v20-fs9/

 

Looks like a must have to me. Well done Aerosoft. :Applause:  

 

edit: Just had a look at the charts for EDDF.....never seen so many for one airport!

 

.....and when did Rwy 07L/25R appear? I don't remember that runway. Who uses it? :Confused:

Looks really much better not only than FSX, but also than the previous version for FS9.

Looks really much better

Well that's gladdening news... refitting an FSX mishmosh to FS9 is a dangerous occupation as Aerosoft well knows. (Heraklion as I recall?)

EDDF is my go-to central European airport, if the new one improves v1 it will be welcome indeed.

 

and when did Rwy 07L/25R appear? I don't remember that runway. Who uses it?

5 years ago! Subject to enormous opposition from locals so it is landing-only for smaller narrow-bodies. Interesting: RWY 18 can only be used in that direction so is a single-number item (i.e. not 18/36).

I remember the "update" (which inserts that runway "more bad than good") making me my first grey hairs.

I keep looking for new EDDF on Aerosoft's site - both US and German. I can find FSX/P3D version 2.0 but not FS9. Has anyone been able to purchase it yet??? Saw the screen shots in the forum but cannot find it to purchase

Hopefully the FS9 version won't be as resource intensive as that for FSX. I have Frankfurt V2 on FSX and although it is an amazing airport, it is also an amazing VAS hog, to the point where I think I am going to have to reinstall the original V1, if I am to fly there in anything other than a default aircraft sadly.

Hi Ian, it seems that it is not yet published, although the new AES 2.43 already has it in its list of supported airports. I'm waiting as eager as you probably do!

:smile: Thank you my friend... I was starting to think that was probably the case but some of the comments gave me the impression it was already out. I will definitely be buying it when it's released.

 

 I do have some good news for you, knowing your interest in Eastern Europe. I just purchased Polish Airports Vol 1 2017 Vs 4.... It is superb. I already had Vs 2 which was excellent but this takes things to a whole new level. And if you purchased the earlier version from SimMarket, the upgrade price is only 10 euros... You will love it. (Of course, I'm probably getting you into trouble with your lovely wife but I can't stop myself!!!) :zeland-flag:

You will love it

Thanks Ian, I do in fact love it, I already did the update, and AES is available for the new version, too.

Does anyone know if this will be available at Simmarket? Or just at Aerosoft's site?

You DO know that this is the latest trend by developers?  Offer a "new and improved" version of something we already have paid for.  No new airport or scenery, just "new and improved"."Step right up and pays your money! Buy something you already have and really don't need.  Keep FS2004 alive with recycled stuff!"

Nope ..... I'm not falling for this money pit.

 

NOTE:

This applies to several products from several vendors over the last year or so.

That might have been true 5 years ago, but 25R seems to be in regular use now. I landed there twice last year on transcontinental flights as passenger on an A330 and a B767. As passenger I don't like it very much. It takes 20 minutes to taxi to some gates.

This is a BIG scenery, very well made. I would certainly buy more FS9 sceneries made to this standard.

 

Highly recommended. :smile:

How is performance, compared to the earlier version?

 

The scenery looks much better than the earlier version, but on my PC it is definitely much more heavy on FPS. And unfortunately this seems to depend on whether scenery shadows are activated or not. So AS continues to cultivate that bad habit of some developers to force simmers to switch shadows off... or to have low FPS.

Guys

 

Have any of you guys had any OOM with this scenery, I have had one whilst using IFly 737, ASE. I have since reduced the high way traffic and went to have a look at the manual in order to see if there was any trouble shooting tips... ( I have a strong Computer, reading Aerosoft forums it seems the FSX boys are having trouble with OOMs) However my Adobe Reader comes up with an error message " There was an error opening this document. The file is damaged and could not be repaired". The charts and approach plates PDF are fine. Redownloaded in case of a corrupt file still the same message comes up. My EDDM manual works fine, and Adobe Reader is up to date.

 

I have also noticed that the AI when crossing the Autobhan  sinks through the bridge crossing is this to do with the scenery level???? I t doesn't happen at EDDM.

 

Can any of you guys help me with trouble shooting the manual issue, I would gladly PM with a copy of my reciept from SimMarket if some one could send me a copy. If not I quite understand.

 

Regards

AI traffic will sink when crossing. This is covered in the manual.

I have "frozen" FS2004 at a point in time and sync'd the scenery, charts, static aircraft and what have you to that point.  Saves me spending a helluva time downloading the latest of everything and also buying it [again?].  Good for the wallet, too!!
