P3DV4 lighting impressions

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

A few pictures showing the Prepar3d v4 and its new technology of dynamic lights. The place is Dortmund in Germany West. The scenery is not yet published.

Dynamic lighting is spectacular, especially in that scenery.  My favorite (although I really like them all), is the top down view of EDLW. 

Well done to LM and the creator of the above scenery!

Looks good!  Some people are reporting dramatic fps loss with the dynamic lighting, though it seems fine on my aging rig.

In the scenery in the pictures, 20 light sources were positioned at the EDLW airport, 10 light sources were placed in Hengsen-Opherdicke, and 12 light sources were placed at the helicopter landing site of the clinic.

On my system (i7 4770K@4.3Ghz - Asus GTX760 2GB) I have at least a frame rate of 30-40 frames per second, locked at 60fps.

In the case of the dynamic lights, it is very important which type of light source is used for its scenery. Landing lights are unsuitable because they are very expensive. Better are the new spot lights from P3DV4. The best result I have achieved by using ordinary fx lights. These are slightly modified effects based on a texture (fx_2.bmp).

Regards
Christian
