Can current photoscenery + custom AG be used in V4 ?

Anyone knows if it works in V4 ?

Hi

I was about to start a thread, I think, about the same topic.

Having spent time on XP11 with Ortho4XP, I'd be interested to hear if there are hopes that it would one day be possible to run photo scenery with something like Orbx autogen and roads over the top in P3D

If this is something different to your question, say the word and I'll start my own thread

thanks

I can't speak for V4, I can tell you that Photoscenery for V3 works fine in Dovetail FSW, so there's hope!

Quite a few comments from ppl like JV indicate scenery is fairly easy to use in v4. In that case I'd suggest the bgl format is likely unchanged which implies photoscenery could be easily used.  Until we see the sdk we wont know for sure though, unless soneone with beta access cares to weigh in?

Thanks guys.

Perhaps it is safe to conclude that agn files also are compatible too ...

I certainly hope so. The thought of not being able to use ES TreeScapes trees (and indeed, ES scenery packages) in P3D v4 is not a comfortable one for me!

Same here, flying without FranceVFR 3DA sceneries is a no go for me.

I strongly hope they are compatible. And the increased LOD radius and performances we hear about V4  would definitely increase photo scenery and autogen overall quality.

I was surprised to see screenshots of my 'Real NZ Dunedin' in the AirdailyX v4 stream, so obviously photoscenery works as expected -- it did show autogen, but only the default, a lot of my autogen is custom, and would need some minor tweaks to get it working -- mainly the autogen descriptions merger tool, from Arno at FSDeveloper.com. Whether this is simple or not I guess we'll know pretty soon.

Some exciting times for photoscenery, which suits me just fine:)

I am primarily interested in the photoscenery performance of the new sim, so if any beta testers have any feedback, I - along with a bunch of other people - would be very interested.

Answer is... yes... it works.

Performance wise, depends on your system.  Simple as that.  With the 64-bit sim, your system is now the total bottleneck.
