FlightBeam Studios - KMSP Looks Awesome!

Recommended Posts

I just did a quick test for Mir and his latest masterpiece, KMSP and the new FBST addon-manager in P3Dv4

The airport looks awesome and the new add on-manager worked great.  Just what you'd expect of Mir.

a Couple of quick screenies with most sliders jacked all the way up.  I would expect this to be fully released very, very soon.  :)

Can my Heavy operate here?

Heavy as in 777 or 747?  Of course, it's a major US Intl airport.

Hmm, close to my neck of the wood, good for a short hop, definitely looking forward to this.

Absolutely in love with everything Mir ever released, the man pushes the envelope with his work every time, probably my favorite developer in the community. Can't wait for this.

Indeed! FlightBeam and FlyTampa really is the peak of the pinnacle when it comes to scenery design!

I consider FlightBeam the gold standard in airport scenery and now that they use their own Add Manager (no couatl) I am very excited to get this product.

Am also very glad they got rid of couatl!  Have been wanting a high quality KMSP for years being as I used to work there for NWA years ago.

I roll my own traffic from Alpha India Group (AIG) - the best there is.  I'm only about 1/3rd done re-installing all my airlines specifically for P3Dv4 (no more crippling the textures to avoid OOM).

How is the performance with the custom AI?

Never had any flight beam products but this looks like a contender.

Much better with P3Dv4.  Still a FPS hit, but nearly as bad as it was.  A lot of the major models are already compatible, but there's still a lot of conversion work to be done by many other modelers as well.  AIG is also now converting and posting some updated models too.

There are three airport scenery developers I judge all other scenery purchases by - FSDreamTeam, FlyTampa, and FlightBeam Studios.  If able, you might check-out FBST's other offerings as well.

I used to mess with this a lot and am starting to feel the itch again. Looking at them it looks like the Airbus heavies appear to be the glaring omission at the moment. That is unless you want to buy them.

I use AIA, AIG, FAIB etc too with AIFP. Do the models work well for you? I've installed them but haven't checked yet and I was a bit confused about the install method...

Now that I OOM's are no factor with v4 - I say release the flood gates.  Can't believe T2G did SEA because you know everyone is pairing it with Orbx PNW.  OOM central in P3D v3 lol
