FlyTampa YSSY Sydney - v1 vs v2 FPS performance P3D v4

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have FlyTampa Sydney v1 on my system on P3D 4.5 - have had it for ages although I SWEAR it actually used to peform better for me a few years ago than it does now.

Anyway - I was wondering it the v2 version performs better than v1 in P3D 4.5 in others' experience?

Any experiences would be appreciated.  I cannot upgrade to P3D v5 at the moment as I have a 980ti with only 6gb VRAM.

Cheers,
Rudy

Tried it for myself in the end... don't bother in P3D v4.  FPS 15-30% worse than v1.

Running it in P3D V4 and have no real problems with PMDG aircraft....I'm very happy with it personally.

It's by far my worst performing airport (very CPU heavy) in P3D V4. But the Sydney area in general is very FPS heavy compared to most other cities. 

V2 also unplayable for me in V4 so I stick with V1 but just replaced the textures.

Yeah - I have been playing around with this.  Even with FT YSSY off - I can barely achieve more than 32-5 FPS with ORBX AU v2 with pretty moderate settings.

Turning scenery complexity to sparse (I know, I know, blasphemy) - the Harbour bridge disappears BUT the airport is much much better and I can maintain 30FPS happily - even with some of the more heavy airport features turned on (previously had all but the shark off!)

I think ORBX AU v2 has a part to play in all of this.  It seems quite heavy on FPS - even with autogen sliders turned down etc.  Tried turning off powerlines, lighthouses etc. but not much improvement.  Not sure why it is so heavy around Sydney - but I get the impression Sydney is one of "those" areas in P3D like London.

I do think FT YSSY v2 did not receive enough optimisation for P3D v4 and was focused on v5 only.  I could be wrong, but that is the way it seems.

Yeah I am sticking with v1 too.

Do you need 32-35fps?  As long as it's smooth, I am happy in the mid 20's with a complex aircraft....

I occasionally get a stutter looking towards the terminal and city whilst in a turn, but it's no deal breaker from my point of view.

With v2 I get around 26-28fps while at Gate 25 in the PMDG744. (Locked at 30)

I have no problems with FPS but I do have some flickering which I cannot get rid of, which was not there in V1.
