Aerosoft Dublin in P3D v4?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Does anyone have experience with running Aerosoft Dublin in P3D v4? I'm aware that this airport is not officially v4 compatible but does it run ok?

Extra marks if it also runs with no compatibility issues with Orbx Ireland ;)

It's still not working I'm afraid. Some terminal buildings but no ground textures. Unfortunately it looks like we have to wait for full installers I'm surprised no one has come up with a temporary solution.

+1. Will they ever update it for v4? I don't recall hearing them say anything about it or adding it to their list.

I do remember seeing that it's under consideration but I can't find that particular topic on their forum. Until we see it on their official compatibility list, we won't know for sure.

Apparently Aerosoft/ Limesim are NOT updating Dublin.......every time somebody puts a post on the forum about the upgrade it’s locked straight away 😡  when they have over 200 airports which is under consideration to be updated, it’s going to take a looong time to through it when you see their compatibility list hasn’t changed since it’s conception only another 2-3 Airports to do! No more have been added😳. You would imagine if other airports are being converted you would advertise quickly on list especially when they are charging for the update ( which I don’t mind at all 😁)....MK Studios Are putting on their development list, good on them..See their Facebook page under visitors posts 😋

Joe, it's not a hijacked post.  It's already been concluded that Dublin is not being updated.

I use Dublin in P3V4.

Low performance and no ground textures, but it's usable...

Not exactly true.  Aerosoft has it on their list of upgrading it to their Professional edition airports. so then it will be v4 compatible.   I'm very much waiting for this as well.  Actually its the only Aerosoft airport i have.  

 

I thought for sure i saw it on a list but maybe not.  Although Mathjias statement said this will probably happen for all Mega Airports.

Jason,

Mathijs post to me suggests he is referring only to MEGA Sceneries that they (Aerosoft) choose to release.

I don't read into that post that Dublin is

guaranteed is to be released.

"Please note that this might now happen for all Mega Airports"

ErichB,

The title of this topic is "Aerosoft Dublin"   So asking about "Aerosoft Male " is kind of High jacking the the original posters topic. 

BTW,how do you know that it has already been decided not to update it?

Paul.

If I remember correctly Mega Airport Dublin was released for FSX and P3D and within a month a port over was available for X-plane 10...fast forward a couple of years and just recently Dublin V2 has been released for x-plane 11 and still no word for P3D v4. I assumed (wrongly) it would have been released within a week or two of the Xp release.... it's a big sim world but you really miss your home base when it's not available

You can't read anything into that.  They lock every post about any upgrade, and Recently they have been updating the list only when the release of the update was either imminent, or already happened.  And no, unless you want to answer an endless stream of "why isn't it out now?" queries on the forums, you won't announce your update plans way in advance, especially as things can change.  

theres probably a long list of updates in their priority before Dublin, so if they do it, it will be a while.  In the meantime, I have weighed the alternatives, and decided that even with the ground layer being gone, and the grainy photoreal in its place, I'd rather use the AS EIDW as it is, than the default or ftx version. YMMV

Shame jennasoft are going to do egkk (thats after uk2000 just released there's)  So here's a golden opportunity for a developer like jennasoft to make a v4 version of Dublin but no once again they rehash the same old stuff using zero common sense

I found EIDW disappointing right from the outset. It had a horrible impact on performance. Being from Dublin I'd like to have it. I have found that Aerosoft addon's tend to be second rate. I'd love to see another developer do EIDW. I am pretty sure that if FSDT or FLY TAMPA or FB or UK2000 did it, it would be quite a bit better than the Aerosoft offering. Don't get me wrong the Aerosoft version looks great but I don't think they give a rats bottom about optimizing their addon's for performance. I would say the best possibility of getting EIDW would be FLY TAMPA or UK2000. The truth is if it had been popular and sold well in the first place Aerosoft would be updating it and perhaps improving it. But I suspect that it was a disappointment for them re sales in the first place. That doesn't bode well for a replacement!

At least 5 people have explained Dublin is not compatible and linked to statements by Aerosoft and someone saying they installed it and could not get ground textures to display, same problem Aerosoft Anchorage has.

Thanks for all the replies everyone. Much appreciated. I had a bad experience with Aerosoft Heathrow a couple of years back, but it looks like I won't be buying Dublin from them anytime soon! Id love to see flytampa tackle it, but I don't think the market it there, sadly. 

(As for the hijack? Protip: if you start your own thread, you're more likely to get an answer to your question! ;))

Aerosoft Dublin works very well in P3D v3.3.5 on my PC with the PlayHorizon VFR Photographic Scenery Volume 9 Ireland East installed. The performance is excellent, and the photoscenery is miles better than the ORBx FTX Ireland scenery as far as realism is concerned. That beautiful scenic approach to runway 28 with accurate coastlines and ground features is worth its weight in gold!

Dublin Airport is currently undergoing a development for new runway to the north of the main terminals, parallel to existing runway 10/28. Maybe after it's completed we might see Aerosoft bring out a new version.

It’s polite to start your own topic to get an answer.... The topic is related to Dublin.. this what grinds my gears reading through a topic and then someone asks a totally different question not related to the orginal topic... and it’s goes off course:dry:

 

hopefully we will get a Dublin soon :biggrin:

It make no sense to me. Dublin is one of the better sceneries by Aerosoft (my opinion). It would be stupid when it doesn't get an update.

Is there anything new in regard to that piece of addon? P3D v4 bring one big advantage - >64bit, but a lot of more disadvantages :-(

....which is why I am still using P3D v3, and visiting Aerosoft Dublin on a regular basis :smile:

I did buy P3D v2, three or four months before v3 got released and haven't used it. I asked P3D to get nonetheless to refund and buy v3, the rejected. I never used v2. When I had v3, I probably would not buy v4, even 64bit is tempting. But I bought FSL-320 and that is perfect for P3D v4. Now, I am not sure to buy P3D v4 or not. A lot of my addons are not compatible. And I don't want to spend a lot of money for all updates. But I want to fly the A320. The only solution that I see is: Buying P3D v4, use addons that got a free update (too less) and concentrate on flying and learning the system of the FSL320 instead of wasting time with aesthetics. Especially, we don't know the future of P3D. Really don't want to invest in updates every third year.
