Prepar3D v4 New York - London with ORBX night & day

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

I just did a test flight on extreme settings from New York to London yesterday. With ORBX + Vector + OpenLC EUR/AME. Yeah I know FTXCentral 3 is not updated yet, but I patched it and migrated it for myself. Here are the videos, enjoy. If you have questions let me know :)

Part 1:

Part 2:

Why bother doing it yourself and risk botching it not to mention affecting future official FTX updates.  My advice would be wait.  I only watched a bit of your video but it look incredibly choppy?

Yeah its on very high settings. Thats always the deal max graphic quality vs fps :P

 

I will capture another video in another scenario with slightly lower settings to reach at least 40 fps or so

That really wasn't showcasing V4 very well at all.  I'm not sure what you were trying to show.

Well it shows that they improved 0 in case for better performance in these populated areas. Even on high performance PCs on max. settings. ;)

Ryzen 5 1600 + GTX 1060 6 GB + SSD... Only 15 - 20 fps and CPU + GPU is only around 60 - 70 % workload. So they didnt improved the engine at all. The only thing they did is 64 bit for the Prepar3d.exe. Thats not even a evolution because you can't use advantages from 64 bit if you do so like in this video you get these fps.

Oh and its not the old A380 cockpit or else. When I take off with the F22 Raptor for example I get 5 fps less. ;)

I'm not a P3D fan but geeez this video didn't do it any justice, as Erich pointed out, what were you trying to accomplish!

Edit: Never mind, I just read your last post.

I am a P3Dv3 user, but that video pushed me a little closer to XP11

If only Austin would give some love to Ai and ATC that is.

Ryzen 5 and a GTX 1060 is not a "high performance PC", especially not for flight sim.  Not bashing you or your choice in hardware, just saying that your statement is inaccurate.

I'm a P3D fan, but it's got some ways to go unfortunately when it comes to XP's night lighting.

Well even when you come with an Core i7 extreme Edition and Titan X you will only get 3-5 more fps there I would bet! P3D still dont use the hardware.

XPlane 11 has potential, but right now its not a full sim. Highly overrated in my opinion. Awful simulated planes, not close to real world scenery and blurry textures. If things like REX and ORBX came out I will try it again. But right now no alternative for me.

They have a good marketing department. But if you fly yourself outside from their showcase scenarios it looks awful imho...

Could you make this screen please again when its day? Wanna see how it looks like! Thanks!

I don't know how much of a troll the guy can be when he buys P3D and several ORBX add-ons...  Sounds more like he's just upset the new version didn't magically transform his computer into a flight sim beast.

Go run FSXMark 11 and post your results.  Guarantee they won't be near mine.  3-5 FPS difference doesn't come close.

Can you send me a link? I dont have FSX btw.

Only on the the grounds that I really don't want to turn this into a P3D vs X-Plane debate. I love pretty much all of today's sims. It was simply just a comparison.

But I don't have the exact shot, but something in the area.

And since this was about night lighting, here's a short clip of the night lighting. Mind you this is the Newscastle, England area.

Apologies for the recording frame rate. Encoding on the fly brings down my performance significantly.

Ah okay so from their marketing depart. You know, the problem I have with XPlane 11 is Los Angeles looks not like LA, SoCal not like SoCal and Miami Beach not like Miami Beach. ;) Not even the roads are there. I really hope ORBX releases something, then lets see what happens.

It gets even worse when you fly over Munich, Berlin or Singapore.

If you don't have FSX or FSX:SE you won't be able to run it.  Information on FSXMark 11 is in the hardware forum here:

Well I would love to see a video from such a "extreme PC" over NY or LA area. I found nothing so far, they look all worse then my videos. Mostly they fly with 0 autogen. Looks awful but yeah 50 fps not a big deal.

I get as well 30 - 40 fps over low populated areas like Zurich, Alpes in general. Or cities like Salt Lake City. But over areas like NY and LA its over no matter what PC you use.

I would instantly buy a Titan and Intel Extreme Edition if someone shows me that he gets at least 50 fps on EXTREME settings over NY/LA. But I assume thats not the case. More or less they have 20 - 25 fps. :P

This doesn't make sense. I've just run a test: took off from FSDT KJFK v2 and flew towards DD NYC-X v2 and FPS never dipped below 30fps (FPS limited to 30FPS). Smooth experience here.

Yeah but what settings?

BTW to XPlane 11: This is AMAZING video? Well that are maximum 15 fps as well + Alot of flickering and awful landclass. As well the blocks looking all the same. I try capture now a similar video. I would bet P3D v4 looks FAR BETTER than this! brb...

As well in that video 0 wingflex. And that saves a huuuge amount of physics calculations.

All sliders to the right and high textures ticked; 8x SSAA.

New York City X - Drzewiecki Design 

Its very possible this saves a hole bunch of FPS vs ORBX + default FSX buildings. I will get that later and report my fps back then.

It's a very nice scenery from what I've seen.

Yeah I have it, but not installed yet. Will do that later, I do a short test flight like in that Xplane 11 video now.
