Jo Erlend Sund's EDDK preview - WOW!

Recommended Posts

Just installed it and did a quick walkaround. My god this thing is a masterpiece....Not sure what kind of deal Jo stroke with the devil, but it must be involving his first born, because this is dark art of scenery design...

Just look at this scenery configurator, have you ever seen such a detailed config tool? For every setting change, the preview pic shows the effect of the current setting. I went with the settings shown in the screenshot and i'm getting 40-50 FPS sitting at the gate in the FSL A319. Still in cold and dark, so i expect a few frames less once i fire up the bird, but its still amazing how well optimized it seems to be

And if you enable static aircraft (which i usually never do), you see animated passengers boarding the static plane. Mindblowing stuff

Ok, i'm now 100% certain he made a deal with the devil. Switched to night time and i'm actually getting more frames than during the day, with dynamic lighting enabled....this is unreal

Wow. The level of detail he achieved is mind-blogging.
A must buy to complement/enhance ORBX Germany.

If You want to see how meticulously he works see Here😲 and that was back in 2017.

This is a masterpiece. He has raised the bar on airport design to an entirely new level. Bought it. Installed it. Put all the settings on as much max as they would go. You will not experience the smoothness with the detail in any other airport.  I put my plane on Gate D22 PMDG 737-900. It's been an hour and I haven't left.  Made numerous cameras for various places including a seat at the bar.lol. Bravo! This is a MUST purchase.

This is a very impressive bit of scenery; it's one which I felt you pretty much have to buy even if you don't particularly want scenery for this airport, just to reward the fact that someone has gone to these lengths to make the thing lol.

For smoothness pay attention to the amount of apron objects.  Too much may introducé lower fps and stuttering.

And while the airport handles a large LOD radius very well other addons may introduce stuttering so keep your LOD radius as it is now.

I have a little problem with the seasons. The seasons of the ground textures and ORBX global LC do not match when I use system time. No big problem if I choose the seasons during setting up my flight, perfect matching and perfect blending. 

This is my first P3D v4 scenery. I was not sure if my hardware could handle it. I come from XP11 to P3D because of FPS problems. A nice surprise, to see my notebook handle a large add on airport so nice.

Anybody knows If it is compatble with FTX Germany ?

Issues ? Does it blend in ?

There's a bit of an edge where Orbx FTX Global Open LC Europe meets this airport's surrounding photorealistic terrain, note that I use Flight 1's UT for the roads and stuff rather than Orbx, so that's part of the mix too on these pics. Yup the join is visible, but I had to fly right over it to make it really obvious enough to spot. Check the second pic with the change between the two sceneries being more distant, it's not bad on the whole, yeah you can spot where the change takes place, but I've put up with a lot worse than this:

Just commenced constructing an Air Hauler base of operations at this airport - seems a shame not to have one located at such a nice scenery lol, and it is quite frankly amazing how well it performs, even with everything option-wise on full throttle, loads of AI traffic, GSX doing the business etc,etc.

For anyone considering this, it's $410,000 to build the base and $70,000 a month to keep it running, more of course if you upgrade the facilities, but geographically speaking, it's not a bad spot for a hub in mainland Europe, so a few cargo jobs in and out of there should have it making a profit, which is doubtless why there's a big Fed Ex base there for real, so you could realistically fly that new Sky Sim's MD-11 into this place, since it does have a nice Fed Ex livery and can be found for a much more palatable 27 quid if you look around a bit and are missing having one of those in P3D V4.

For those who are using the early access version of Just Flight's Traffic Global incidentally, it currently puts mostly Eurowings Airbuses and Ryanair 737s on the stands, plus a few other types from TUI etc, in the above pic, that's my Aerosoft A321, with a Traffic Global AI Eurowings 'Bus alongside it. Somebody needs a slap for not putting that cone properly in front of the port engine with passengers disembarking lol.

This is a great airport. But I found two issues. Turn rain weather on and go in the terminal. It rains in the terminal.lol.  Same with snow. Also, when you put snow on it doesn't do anything to the tarmac like the rain does. These should be obvious fixes.

Why? You can fly to and from it as I do with some beautiful US airports while sitting in Europe. That's what make flight simulation great imo... it allows it all.

Why on earth would you want to go in the terminal when you are in the aircraft ?

You Slew your aircraft inside the terminal ?

Ramp up those GPUs, I see A LOT of reflection calcs ... hmmm I wonder, do I see something else in those images 😉

It does indeed look fantastic!

Cheers, Rob.

Outstanding scenery!

But the tire marks on the runways (at least RWY 14L / 32R looks a tad sloppy. Just some straight black lines. Minor thing I know but compare to Flightbeam KMSP and it looks rather weak.

Already Jo has written that he will look into that.

He is a lot on the AS Scenery forum.

I'm guessing it's not quite that easy to have FSX or P3D exclude areas from a rain effect, sceneries such as this are doing things the original program was never really designed to cater for.

I bet if you take a look, it probably rains underneath your aeroplane wings in the sim too, whereas in reality standing at the wing root in the gear bay of a Boeing 737 is a great place to shelter from the rain and if you do that on an A320, you get a nice hot blast from one of the exhaust ports too, which is great for warming your hands. Will probably be doing exactly that later on this evening. 🙂

Back with this scenery though, I'm really not sure how they've managed to pull it off, but the frame rates are really impressive considering the level of detail it is portraying; there are a ton of reflective surfaces all over the place, with solar panels on the roofs of terminal buildings and loads of glass on the front of those buildings with animated people visible inside, people on the ramps, nice little details such as revolving doors going round on terminal building entrances, custom ground traffic buzzing about, loads of ramp clutter - which is very accurately modeled for a change - phototerrain around the adjacent landscape with custom buildings on that etc, etc. To be fair, the optional static aircraft are fairly low res and low poly, but I didn't use them anyway. I was using Traffic Global and GSX with some serious payware airliners and it was handling it all no problem at all.

It's definitely one of the best sceneries I've got as far as detail combined with performance is concerned. Amazing bit of work and not a bad price either.

Selfish person you are! Don't you care for those poor souls who will be entering your plane. Instead of nice and dry they come in all miserable and wet!😆

Hahahaha 

It’s a budget airlines airport so what did you expect ?

Let them take an umbrella with them...

It’s not a luxury airport like Frankfurt...

😁

I’m just annoyed because when I was eating my overpriced burger and fries in the Terminal the rain wrecked my food.
