FSLabs A320X Video Showing of Prepar3d Beauty

Recommended Posts

Hi! Folks,

 

Tim Mitchel has been kind enough to allow us to post his fantastic Youtube video showing off the upcoming FSLabs A320 direct from P3D v3. Using only Active Sky CA and Active Sky 16 to add to the immersion, we can already tell this looks vastly improved upon compared to the FSX version.

 


 

 

Watch the video above and subscribe to him as he’ll be releasing some more very soon!

I'd love to see it but it hangs all the time on my computer...? Anyone else having the same problem? EDIT Works fine in another browser... I wonder what is so 'fantastic' and 'vastly approved' ('also showcases a couple of new additions') and why the heck ASCA and AS16 are mentioned because it is complete dark...? Not seeing much that makes me go 'wow'...? Must be missing something here.

You are missing something, as I am too...scenery.  Aside from the airport, I couldn't see anything due to this being a nighttime flight.  I do however, see a nice transition of what appears to be fog, which is apparent as the aircraft descends towards approach and the lighting slowly getting brighter, an advantage to a good weather generator.

 

The interior cockpit looks nice and clean, though not knowing whether it is cleaner and better than the FSX version is, excuse the pun, up in the air.

VAS is my biggest concern

Great aircraft but it does indeed drink a ton of VAS in FSX-SE, even with just FTX Global and default airports.

Hi there, with all due respect, I do agree with some of you guys. There's nothing special, in that vid.  My fsx  looks better than that, at least you can see what you doing inside.  Outside if the conditions are misty,  the same or close enough. Too dark.  Inside,  pilots in real life could not operate in that darkness, unless under some kind of emergency. Also when I land in misty conditions, I get the same effect. All of a sudden you see the runway right in front of you, a couple of feet down there,  Imho, there's nothing special here.  Sorry.  The airport looks beautiful at night, though.

 

Cheers

we operate just fine in that amount of darkness. We actually operate better in that darkness. It helps us to keep our night vision. Just sayin....

Good then guys all understood, nothing special about the video.  Another addon then. Cannot say better than FSX, I suppose. At least the video does not show that. That's all I was trying to say.

Well... er.... from the OP:

 

 

 

fantastic Youtube video

 

:wink:

 

And the description of the video says "Also showcases a couple of new additions" and I was wondering what that was about. But I see the poster of the video replied to your question and doesn't really know anything about any new additions. Ah, well, whatever...

I'm seeing strobes reflecting off of the surrounding IMC conditions- I don't know any addons that natively do that. 

 

However I can't believe people aren't up in arms about that high pitched noise!*

If there is a "vast improvement" over FSX, I honestly can't see it, I have been using this excellent add-on - best simulated airbus ever, by far - right from day one and enjoyed the quality reflected in this video (but cannot recall hearing such a lousy engine noise...!).

 

Regarding cockpit lighting (referring to a previous post above) in real world, usually, as a pilot you want to fly with the darkest possible cockpit - especially during take-off and landing - so as to avoid losing outside visual clues. A pilot should be able to locate any cockpit button, switch or lever without actually looking (searching) for it night or day, in real simulators sessions, this is also part of the crew training when there is an emergency, then is not the time to fiddle your way through controls you lost sight of, being busy managing other priorities...

Yes there is a vast improvement over FSX with this beauty:

Two major ones:

- No mouse bug and FPS drop! so better performance.

- Better VAS management.

 No. No claim for special video. Just "a fantastic video", claim. Not even worth all the ink...
