List of P3Dv4 native Airport Scenery that work well with Dynamic Light

Recommended Posts

All,

If you have bought newer airport sceneries that claim to be P3D v4 native (or have been upgraded) and do not incur the DL performance penalty because they are native, would you mind sharing them here?  The holiday sales season is upon us and discount or not, I really would like to buy knowing that I will not incur the penalty.  From my own experience the following vendors native V4 perform well with DL:

Simaddons

Pacific Simulations

I have seen significant degradation with some V4 airports from Aerosoft (from reading posts) with DL enabled, hence my ask.

Thanks in advance

Some P3Dv4 SDK complaint Airports i get reasonably good performance with DL:

 

FB KSFO HD v2 (i dont know how they achieved it, but this airport's performance is pure black magic)

FB KMSP

FSDT KSDF

Jetstream Milano Linate

Aerosoft Barcelona Pro

Aerosoft Frankfurt Pro

T2G Munich

All FSDT sceneries that have dynamic lighting (I think KSDF and KCLT right now?) should work well because they never display all the lights at once, their couatl engine only renders the ones relevant to your position which saves massive fps.

I have great Dynamic Lighting performance in FSDT KJFK (with DD New York City installed as well) and FT EHAM but no clue why :mellow: 

 

(PS forgot EGLL Aerosoft as well)

 

Thanks

Is my taxi light disappearing from inside the cockpit at certain angles related to this issue?

Aerosoft lists  long list of airport scenery at their site as V4 compatible.  Some are the Pro versions which are native V4.  Any report of the others? The question is which developer can we trust?  If you think about it 5 of these airports, even at discount price can run into 120$+, almost as expensive as the PMDG QoTSII P3D!
