KSAN Scenery: Which one?

Recommended Posts

It's been a while since I moved from LVFR v1 to v2, but IIRC it was a substantial improvement.  What I can say with certainty is that I love LVFR v2, it blends competently with Orbx SoCal and I've never felt the desire to move to the Orbx version.  If I had neither, I still think I'd trend towards the LVFR version simply because something about the Orbx ramp/runway textures looks funky to my eye.

Still I can't imagine being terribly unhappy with either.

Wow I just realized there's three different versions of San Diego

LVFR version 1 (which is what I have), they now have a version 2 and Orbx.

Is it worth changing to v2 or Orbx?  Does anyone recommend one over the other?  I see both are on sale (LVFR 16.99 usd and orbx about 12.50 usd)

I do have Orbx SoCal FWIW

If you choose the ORBX version, I have modified mine by removing all photo.bgls to give it full comparability with FTX Southern Cal.

I use the ORBX SAN + iniBuilds.com Dynamlic lighting profile. The ORBX DL has terrible performance but iniBuilds makes it a perfect scenery. 

What's the differenCe between the ORBX profile and inibuilds?

Haha it's an easy answer thanks gents.  (kidding sounds like everyone likes LVFRv2 and Orbx)

I think the look LVFR is superior (slightly) but Orbx is cheaper.  I guess I'll make a decision!

I already have that for XP11 hehe!  

I decided on the LVFR scenery for P3D.  I already bought two Orbx titles in this sale - time to support another Dev

I think the iniBuilds looks a lot better and the performance is WAY higher with it.

What DL file did you disable in the KSAN/Scenery folder. I'd like to test how the inibuilds dynamic lighting looks on my system. Thanks.

I forget, I’m pretty sure you turn off the ORBX DL in the ORBX config app.

I forgot about the cp. Tested and I like the inibuilds DL better. This time I enabled the orbx ksan photo.bgls and I had no idea that the photo blends better today with FTX SOCAL than it did years ago. It must have been updated and I did notice the update. After checking an old thread, I need to go back to my modified version.

Here's the old thread: https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/540706-orbx-ksan-v2-update-released/page/3/

Here's how the airport looks today:

I to prefer ORBX but for a different reason.  I love the static planes and people flow.  I wish more developers   would place static planes and people at the gates as ORBX and DD do.  I supplement the airports with more clutter, vehicles and equipment using simdirector.

How do you do that?  What is simdirector?  I've never heard of it?  I hate how empty airports are...
