QW 787 Performance [FSX]

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I see that the quality wings 787 has been released for P3D and the FPS people are getting isn't very good. I fly FSX, not P3D, and wanted to know if the FSX FPS is better than P3D that being becaause it has been released to FSX for a while now and service packs have been released.

Here are my specs:

intel CORE i5 7th Gen (2.50 GHz)

64 bit

8GB memory

Thanks!

Brian

Hi Brian,

I use the QW 787 in FSX and I have to say I have found the performance to be quite smooth. I don’t routinely monitor frame rates when everything seems to be performing smoothly but with the 787 the FPS while in the cockpit are in the mid 20s. My system however is a little more powerful than yours.

As you might expect however, the QW 787, with the very detailed flight deck, does have a fairly significant VAS footprint which can be an issue with FSX particularly if you use it with VAS intensive scenery. 

I do however really like this aircraft and use it a lot in FSX where even long flights are possible providing the VAS demands of the scenery you are using particularly the arrival and departure airports are not too high. 

Hope this helps,

Bill

Thanks so much for your input Bill! I’m purchasing it now! Unrelated question but are the service packs embedded into the flight 1 installer or is it the hot fix on the website I have to install after initial installation?

 

thanks!

I’m afraid I’m not sure about that Brian. I bought it immediately after release and I had to install the update which came out later. I would have thought they would have modified the current installer to include all updates but, as I said, I am not sure. Maybe you might be able to find something on that on the dedicated QW support forum over on the Flight 1 website.
