FSDG Mauritius anyone?

Recommended Posts

Anybody using the just released FIMP? How is the performance with dynamic lights and details? Looks great in the screen shoots. Though would prefer if it be made into separate packages when a very large terrain area is also covered around the airports so that it can be skipped for default or a global package if one wishes.

I'm tempted by that and several other sceneries of theirs, though I don't own any so I can't comment on the quality.

Thesoliniki is beautiful, one of my favourites, prior to V4 it was a high VAS airport but now you can enjoy it to its fullest. Looking closely at FIMP it does not seem to be as detailed, just my opinion, I hope I'm wrong.

I am interested too. They are doing great sceneries. I have their Paro, Heraklion, Seychelles and  Ayers Rock. For me the price is still a bit steep with the recent Euro strength. I'll have to wait on a sale ;)

This should make a good partner with their excellent Reunion scenery, a quick 100 mile or so hope between them.

I bought their outstanding Reunion product a while back.  I want to buy this one for some PMDG 737 Austral hops between both islands.

FSDG makes some good stuff.  I now have their FIMP, FSIA, FMEE, LGIR, HESH and YAYE airports and I love them all. I just completed a FMEE - FIMP - FMEE rotation with an Air Austral 77W (UU108 and UU109 were operated IRL with a 77W on the 20th of this month).

I'm finding the dynamic lighting hits FPS really hard on this as it did with me at FMEE so I turned off the 3D apron lights in the included FSDG Configurator and still getting pretty bad FPS at the terminal even with 4xMSAA.  Runway ops are fine at night though (or at least it was for me).

In order to use the SODE jetways you have to download another file from FSDG and then copy the files into the SODE SimObjects directory located at C:\ProgramData\12bPilot\SODE.  My only other gripe is that the apron textures are perhaps a bit too clean or too bright.  Other than that it's top notch although I've only done IFR flights into and out of FIMP (the entire island is covered by the scenery, including resorts and other POI).

Here are some snaps I took while checking it out (one parked at night at the terminal and one on short final ILS 14 of my inbound flight UU108 from RUN)

You're welcome

I'm watching now the F1 GP but after that, I'll do another live with a C172 to have the time to look everything :)

I think I will get Mauritius and Reunion in the very near future. Does the airport at Reunion have animated jetways?

Yes, RUN now also has SODE jetways (see the download here for both FMEE and FIMP)
