MK-STUDIOS - VAGAR P3Dv4?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi,

After seeing a very impressive real approach on EKVG of an A320. I'm considering buying this airport. I don't see anything indicated regarding possible compatibility with ORBX Global and FSGX2018 meshes.

Can someone tell me if there are any problems?
The MK-Studios site is under construction...

Thanks and Regards,

Richard

No showstopping problems.

I get higher than usual terrain popping, the quality of the photoscenery surrounding the airport is a little low / messy, and I have to remember to turn of vegetation autogen - very few trees on the Faroe Is.

Quality little airport though.

Here's a couple of wide screenshots to help you decide:

Is there another scenery for a previous version of P3D or for FSX that might work?  Or is the MK Studios the only show in town?

There is the Azurafiles version which works on P3Dv4. But the MK Studios is substantially better.

The best results however are obtained mixing the MK Studios with the Faroe Islands 5 available at the library:

This is an original idea of the Azurafiles team (to mix their scenery with the Faroe Islands freeware), but it works perfectly with the MK Studios. And you end up having the best of both worlds: a beautiful terminal and airport from MK Studios and correct villages and scenery for the islands (and around the airport) by the freeware Faroe scenery. This avoids all landclass issues and terrain mismatches.

If only there was good quality photoscenery and terrain mesh to go with that airport... :sad:

Hi,

Thank you very much everyone. Faroeislands5 seems to be a good compromise, because it provides a longer runway than the one present in FSX/P3Dv4 without which it would be impossible to use an Airbus.
By adding the MC-Studios scene it could effectively eliminate the problems related to landclass issues and terrain mismatches.

I hope that one day ORBX will make a complete scene of the islands and the airport.
In this sense I added my voice in a topic on ORBX in which I put a Youtube link on the RNP approach of an Airbus. It is this approach that made me know this place and want to add it to my system.

Nope.
I can't recommend this merge, unless someone knows which specific files to disable?

I've tried all sorts of combinations and the end result still looks like this:

Hello.

I wouldn't recommend this merge if the results were anything like that.

Here's how my scenery looks like:

I don't have the time to see what files I've disabled where, but I'll try to do it later today and will share the results.

I think this looks rather convincing for the Faroe islands scenery and I hadn't disabled any autogen vegetation.

Your 4th screenshot shows some rather ugly looking "mesh cliffs" near the airport. As for using the freeware Faroe Islands scenery......landclass textures really do not do it for me. I would much prefer high quality photoscenery and no autogen.

Of course, the perfect solution would be ORBx TrueEarth Faroe Islands :wink:

Is there a way to disable the photo scenery that comes with MK-studios and just orbx?
