New CYYZ for P3dv4?

Recommended Posts

Anybody know if any developer is working on a new CYYZ?

The Fly Tampa one is getting a little dated now.

Released in 2015 and never recompiled for P3Dv4 64 bit, just some file updates to patch overtop of the base version.

A little dated? How much has changed there? FlyTampa's YYZ works great in P3D V4x.

I fly from there regularly in v4, great airport  and works great in v4.

There’s been no major external changes at YYZ since 2015.

First hand that it works well in V4? Or what has changed so much that it requires an update already? Don't get me wrong, I'd love for airports to get updated every couple years.

What about the issue with Dynamic Light in the PMDG 777 and airport scenery not native to V4?  FlyTampa provided patch files for PAPI lights etc. but it's not clear if the DL performance issue exists with these patches or not.  Can you comment on that topic?

Flying into FT CYYZ at night with the NGX's landing lights on and having no performance issues at all. Personally, I've never noticed any difference in performance between non-v4 and v4 SDK compiled airports. Just don't use SSAA settings at night but switch down to 8xMSAA which won't make that much of a difference at night, visually.

My only gripe about the scenery is that it's kind of a performance hog, even with low resolution textures installed.

That's true but I remember Martin of FlyTampa explaining that there is something in the Toronto area which makes it an FPS hog area in general.
They apparently did all the performance tricks but are aware of CYYZ still being heavy.

I thought it was an area heavy on VAS? Anyway, there's certainly tons of autogen in the GTA, even at lower settings.

I think both, as often is, but in P3Dv4 VAS seems to be irrelevant. ;)

They have great products but when it comes to installers it's been like that in the past as well, they don't really have a good/fast record in updating it. 

I still remember when we moved to v3. It was also taking long. While other developers, Flightbeam, for example has it ready almost on the first week even though FB is also a 1 man show kinda business.

Everyone wants updates and reworked scenery complete with accurate AFCADs within spec from a week ago..... until the dev decides that all that work requires a 20$ fee to compensate.  The following posts will then say they are happy with the current version and it works fine the way it is. lol

Sounds like the same situation Taxi2Gate got into. Recompiled and updated LFPG for v4 adding DL and fixing some bugs due to huge request, charged a 5 dollar upgrade fee, and everyone said how they’d never buy their products again, they’re money hogs, or that there can’t possibly be enough work to justify the upgrade price. Also, another comment “BUT OTHER DEVS DIDN’T CHARGE SO WHY ARE YOU?!?!” classic.

Plus, I’d say FlyTampa is working on enough as it is. KLAS, KBOS, and KATL. I personally don’t mind installing the patches and using the scenery until proper installers are made. I’d rather have more airports then just new installers when they really didn’t need them.

Agreed. Installing the patches took me about 2 mins each and all is working fine. I'd rather they fully concentrated on releasing KBOS ... which they are probably doing.

I would say that the odds of getting FT or any other dev. producing a new CYYZ is zero since the current on is fantastic and probably one of the best airport adddons ever made for FSX and P3D. Although if you look hard enough and I have it has one or two annoying graphical bugs that I reported shortly after it was released but I don't think where ever fixed. Here's a couple of CYYZ videos:

If you head over to the FlyTampa forum youll see plenty of topics on cyyz (and Vienna) ctds due to 4.1 issues. 

Shame because FlyTampa sceneries are fantastic.

"LAS and BOS are almost done. They're still working on ATL."

None whatsoever on CYYZ.....with FSX was terrible...overall good scenery. What I don't like is the fact they made Taxi signs very small to the point they are not legible and I have to watch it carefully and compare to Map....Other than that very accurate with lighting issues but nice. Unfortunately KBOS is not compatible as of yet, but once the finish I am sure will look nice. TNCM is good, light and nice....
