This. I'm pretty excited, but God knows EHAM is a hungry beast...

I don't expect a miracle from FlyTampa, but well... if it runs at least as good as Aerosoft's EGLL, I'll buy it without hesitation.

Like it a lot, did get an OOM because I missed Ultra was set (normally use 1024, the installer set it). Also installed the light textures from the Flytampa forum. FPS is fine, but VAS can indeed be an issue with a lot of addons (I use PMDG737, ASN16+ASCA, ORBX Vector, OpenLC EU, VOXATC, 20% AI)

Looks beautiful.  Very curious about VAS/performance.  If someone has a 4K monitor, let me know if you see a lot of flashing...I get a lot at Copenhagen.

Just found it on the Flytampa site for sale for FSX/P3D, downloading now.  2 files; 1 at 314MB,2nd at 1.8GB  http://www.flytampa.org/eham.html

 

Interesting!. It was supposed to be shown on a livestream yesterday at AirDailyX.net, but it seems that the FT guys thought it was better to release it without waiting anymore.

Cheers, Ed

VAS can be indeed a problem. P3D with 1024 textures and low-rez textures installed, NGX from EGLL (UK2000), Weather very bad (450m vis), much traffic with Vatsim Event. At the end 500mb remaining. Not much but ok.

 

On the other hand, good frames (always above 18-20) and looks great.

I've only had time for a quick look round as I wanted to get a quick flight in before time ran out so did an NGX flight from Taxi2gate EDDM to EHAM. I did the default install which is high-res textures only around the immediate area of the terminals; from Flytampa site you can get a high-res textures pack or low-res pack. I only enabled the apron vehicles, there is also options for extra road traffic including a major motorway nearby.

 

I'm running an i5 3570k clocked to 4.8, gtx970 4gb, on a 27" lcd monitor. FSX-SE, Add-ons used were the PMDG NGX, orbx global, orbx OPENLC Europe, ASN, REX soft clouds, Pro-ATCX, and WOAI traffic set at 46%. It was a bit of a pea souper landing with the heavy fog and just about nightfall so lots going on. VAS stayed just under 3.5GB, fps was averaging around 20, which I'm used to around heavy hitters like FlyTampa Toronto,Sydney, Copenhagen etc UK2000 EGLL, et al. Generally it's reasonably smooth which works for me in having a nice amount of traffic and decent amount of eye candy.

 

In short I really like it and look forward to getting some more flights in and out of there and have a good look round.

 

Cheers

Anyone who had aerosoft EHAM (after unselecting this) and installing FT EHAM..what is y'alls opinion?

 

I have the old Aerosoft's EHAM.. , Chris Night Environment (Benelux) and with PDMG 777, UT2 traffic, I get 450MB VAS left over and 20FPS outside and 18FPS in VC. I could not use the awesome NL2000 Project high rez photo textures (OOM)

 

I do not have the FT EHAM.. not purchased as yet, I am not sure if it can take the FT EHAM.

 

The Q is Would FT EHAM better the old Aerosoft EHAM or worsen it..in FPS and in VAS?

Hello,

 

 

View this scenery with your Virtual Reality HMD, Wow! look at the surrounding buildings and,the AI traffic aircraft, you will think as you are in Amsterdam Schiphol in real life. 

 

The regular monitors, no matter how high the display resolution  , cant even come close to the immersion factor, you get in viewing this scenery through HMD.

 

 

 

 

Thanking You,

 

Best regards,

 

Aftab

Just watched my stream back and there are some quite big stutters present that I can only put down to the upload bitrate being a bit too high for my internet connection. Certainly they weren't there in the original gameplay. It's a lovely scenery and performance is great all round at sensible settings but the usual suspects will put you into OOM territory - swapping views a lot, changing from night to day, running 4K textures and maxing out settings etc. It needs to be handled delicately this one, but the details and modelling are as superb as we've come to expect from FT.

 

A caveat here in that I had no charts and this is really not how to fly the 777! I'm expecting a sarcastic email from my 777 pilot team any moment...

I have watched your stream, Ben. It was very nice. Thanks a lot for it. Please do more.
By the way what happened to your 777 engine/tail textures at one moment? Was it an OOM coming? :wink:

That guy demanding you follow the taxi flow was very funny. Thank you for your streams please do more especially this chilly winter!

AI traffic can add easily 500mb you could downgrade all the AI textures to DXT1 and 512x512 size.

I am having issues with it. The worst being it keeps crashing p3d at the same point (83% loading) almost every time I try and load it. Also the VAS seems high. First time I have ever I got an OOM by just changing an aircraft type without even flying. I presume this is just day 1 teething issues and there will be some patch out shortly. 

 

Also FYI the installer does not add the LC folder, so whoever buys it make sure you add the LC folder manually. 

 

Is anyone else having issues with P3D crashing when trying to load it?

I think it's an early sign of running out of VAS, I'm not sure.

I wonder what happens flying from FT Amsterdam to FT Copenhagen... if possible at all without a massive OOM.

I love the scenery.  It's great to have a high quality Amsterdam - at long last.  I just spawned in on VATSIM and looked around last night.  The airport was pretty jammed up with traffic.  Was amazing.    Loaded up the KLM 777-300, parked up at the gate and just looked around.  VAS maxed at 85%.   Peformance on my machine was good.

 

Earlier than expected but I'm not complaining.  Amazing!

Done it during test in FSX-SE and P3D not one OOM :-)

Andre,

 

What settings did you use for LOD and autogen, texture resolutions in P3D? What was the amount of AI Traffic?

 

Thanks

For those who have this working did you have to really dial back the graphics settings? I still can not get it to load up in P3D, keeps crashing on loading. Despite trying the LITE textures and AI set to zero.

Does anyone know if this will work with the freeware NL2000 scenery?

 

Hmmm..why would you think it won't work? It should,

 

Except if you add other addons like NE, and other airports close to it and high traffic etc, you may run into OOMs.. I had to disable the NL2000 (but I am using Aerosoft EHAM,)

 

I am yet to get the FT EHAM.. Usually Fly Tampa addon is a day 1 purchase for me... but this area like Heathrow is an OOM inducing area... so  I am hesitating

Well, I don't think that FlyTampa Amsterdam will have been built with NL2000 in mind! It's just that if I decided that I want it, I would need decent photoscenery of the Netherlands as a minimum. Flying over default scenery to get to a detailed airport is not an option for me.
