PTA 2.60 for P3Dv4.1 - a first look!

Recommended Posts

Congratulations, Matt! I can't tell you how great it is to have P3D working properly again! Such a relief to have it so soon after the 4.1 update ... yay!!

The good news (folks) is that it looks like my old preset (25_04) will work fine in PTA 2.60. Here are some very quick shots from my favourite testing area!

So ... hopefully I can lash up a new 2.60-specific preset quite soon. I'd like to explore some of the new features first, though!

AAdam.

Just tested out of KMIA with old 25-04 presets, operates satisfactorily and absolutely fantastic.

Congratulations Matts and AAdam.

Looks great Adam, I always look forward to trying out your presets. In fact, I never fly without them...

Hi Adam, do you know if the PTAbsolute Natural Set preset will work?

Hi Jack!! No idea! I've never tried them (too busy tweaking my own, LOL). Going by other threads here, it appears that some people are having trouble with "Clouds Directional Lighting" - so if the preset doesn't use that, then I'm sure it'll be fine.

Thanks for all the nice comments, folks. It is indeed the Milford Sound (NZMF) addon by ORBX - beautifully rendered in ORBX NZSI. It's a great area to test presets, as it has a great mixture of autogen, vegetation, mountains (for the shadows) ... and water ... all in a tiny area.

Right! ... back to tweaking my tweaks!

Have you tried it with TerraFlora (Turbulent Designs)?.

I would love to (I haven't got it) - but I'm terrified of screwing up my ORBX HD Trees. I beta test for ORBX, so have to keep things fairly clean - though I must say I like TF.

Looking forward to trying your final settings once you have it worked out.

I'm working on a preset now. I don't think there's much to tweak from 25_04 ... just checking through the new stuff ... so I expect to be finished today (or tomorrow at the latest).

I'm sort of hampered by just looking at the scenery LOL!

Ok, installed Today 4.1 Client/content and PTA 2.6. Using REX TD/Soft Clouds, I didnt noticed any problems with clouds, missing textures.

I didnt use my old own profile, created the new one according my old settings for 2.52. I'll tweak it also but new PTA 2.6 works without any issue for me (for the last 30 minutes of tests).

I noticed only that external model and ground are a little brighter after the update and with the same settings in PTA like it was version before. Easy to improve this. Thx Matt!

Good idea for the future to have two kind of saturation for ground and water.

After one hour - everything is fine, it was good option to have this new setup for VC/external model.

Yes - I love that feature too. I often find I want to beef up the sky and/or terrain but tone down the sea.

Great shots, BTW! Love those VC shots - and the Tornado ... can't go wrong with that one(still brings a lump to my throat)!

I have both ORBX HD Trees and TF, and I can tell you won't screw up your ORBX trees. In fact, they work together very, very well.

Thanks....

I like a lot your 2.60 presets (especially the effects on clouds), but in my taste I prefer a little bit more of atmospheric haze and rayleigh scattering effect, so I played a little bit with that section only and some post processing effects parameters.....

Cheers

@Adamski_NZ Cracking preset you have created. It was slightly too blue on my screen so did a little tweak for my personal tastes, but credit to you. Its very realistic and not too overdone.

Even works well at night (which up till now has been my pet peeve at night with HDR enabled)

Here is a quick shot with dusk and the preset active.
