I have the X Evolution version of this, so I'm eager to compare them! 🙂

$58.99 US? Good luck with that Aerosoft.  3 airports, yes but that is a significant price point.

You don't have to buy the whole package. Each island is also available as a single product.

3 airports,

 

Ah … no. You get 3 Islands! And 4 Airports on the Islands.

And complete phototextures, houses, buildings, etc. So far more than "just" 3 airports.

 

Maybe the price is too steep for you for the package, it's your opinion. But it is not just 3 airports, that is not true.

I just upgraded from the previous version, removed the old ones, installed the new ones. did a short test, looks very nice, i think it a slightly smoother in terms of performance. Dynamic lights look nice, with 2xSSA still good performance using NGX. A few days ago upgraded to Milan Malpensa prof as well, very nice too. so Kudos to Aerosoft. and by the way their customer support GREAT.

How does the photoground of Mallorca look like? Is it updated? What's about the colours and the autogen denisity? The photoground was in my opinion the biggest drawback of the old version, it was way to washed out, not very good resolution and with way to little autogen density. That's why I deactivated it. Would be nice, if this is improved.

IMO, the photoground of the island is still a bit washed out, but I cannot remember how it was before. Autogen amount seems to be sufficient. I purchased only Mallorca (upgrade for 10 €). The airport is very fine and performannce with PMDG is very good.
