Hello everyone,

People keep complaining about LatinVFR's Miami quality, however from my point of view it is good enough to be a good product, especially it's the only one good out there. Wondering if anyone has tried their P3DV4 product and can give a comparison with V3. I'm planning to get their KSAN V2 since I already have the older one.
Thank you,
Hoang Le

I have the P3Dv4 version of KMIA and it's fine,  I'm going with Orbx KSAN especially since it's on sale.

I paid for the upgrade from V2 to V3 as I really didn't like V2, but V3 really didn't do anything to impress me either.

I'm not impressed with Orbx's KSAN; hopefully, they will make it better with the next update.

I really liked the v3 version. Nice airport in a beautiful city. Purchased the upgrade yesterday and will do a flight today in the afternoon.

I didn't realize there was a version 4.  A free upgrade to version 4 if version 3 was purchased after 10-1-2017.  I purchased mine on 09-29-2017.  On the bright side I can get version 4 for $10 euro upgrade fee.

How does one delete v3 if installed via the add-on XML method?

I bet if you ask them with a copy of your receipt, they would waive the fee. Doesn't hurt to ask!

Happy holidays....

So, I got the upgrade.  The airport is nicer, though, I think it could be better.  The ground textures are a little darker (which I was hoping for) but still very light. 

Also, I tried Dynamic Lighting there.  My system handles it poorly (GTX970)...frames went from mid 20s down to 6.  On the other hand, IMO, it doesn't look that much better to me so it's not much loss turning it back off.

Thank you for your feedback.

And also to everyone, LatinVFR released a KMIA v3 installer for P3DV4 months ago (pretty fast after the release of V4). This is the updated version of that airport and they ask for a little fee, so if you don't like it you still can use the old version under P3DV4, not like "other" developer charge P3DV4 installer of their current product. It's different.

I did ask about it, but the response was a link to the $10 upgrade fee. :smile:

To be clear, when I said it doesn't look that much better, I was talking about the Prepar3D Dynamic Lighting in general...not the airport.  The airport does look better.

Thank you, the old version already good for me, not that good, but usable, so I will consider getting both of the newly KSAN and KMIA.

Cheers!

If anybody has the p3dv4 version could you check if the ground layout of the west cargo has been corrected? I emailed them earlier this year but received no reply

 

gate w 70 and w 71 are mixed up and all the other gate numbers in the area

I received an update from SimMarket the file LatinVFR_dynamiclights_patch.exe

What does really do such Patch? Does replace any file or just add one? What is the name of the new file?

It replaces a file and adds a file to the Effects folder.  SpotLEBL.fx is replaced.  SpotLEBL_2.fx is add.  Unfortunately it did not fix it on my PC but we are still working on it..

I thought the Patch file went to fix the runway bouncing lights (lol). Many thanks for that replace/adds info. Did you try to rename those files to .off to see what happen? If still no changes then the Patch didn't work definitely.

I actually found the fix.  You have to have Special Effects Distance set to at least medium.  Odd but it definitely fixed it.  I can replicate the problem by setting it to low.  Just a shot in the dark that worked.

Great found!.

Did you notice right after loading any aircraft to KMIA or KSAN runway lights bouncing up/down? Lights should be blinking side to side as PANC Anchorage PANC

I noticed it with KMIA.  It reminded me of "whac-a-mole".
