  1. I saw that Aerosoft Bratislava has been released, which is great. However before I buy it I got a question about it.

     

    On the product page it's listed under the P3D v4 category and below the product name it says P3D v4/v5, however looking at the picture it says "Add-on for Lockheed Martin Prepar3D v5". There's no mentioning of v4 in the picture.

     

    This image shows what I mean:

    I've put green squares around the areas which I mean. I guess it probably is compatible with P3D v4, but I wanted to make sure of that. Just because at one place it only says v5 and not v4.

  2. Usually I'm one of the guys giving advice here, but this time I'm looking for some input to come to a good decision.

     

    My current video card is getting a bit outdated. It's a GeForce GTX 960 with 2 GB GDDR5 memory (ASUS GTX 960 Mini OC). Not much special these days. One disadvantage is that it only has one DVI output, so technically only one monitor can be connected to it. However I have three monitors and use a Matrox Triplehead2Go Digital Edition to connect them all to my system.

     

    And while it's all still functional, I'm thinking about updating. A better videocard on which all three monitors can be directly connected, abolishing the need for the TripleHead2Go. This is mainly due to the drivers and software for the TripleHead2Go getting outdated (they're not updated anymore) and slowing down the system.

     

    The video card I got my eyes on is the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 Mini OTX OC 6G. It comes with three DisplayPort connectors, so all three monitors can be directly connected (although I will need adapter plugs since the monitors can only be connected through DVI, they don't have a DisplayPort connection).

     

    For details, this is the card I'm eyeing.

    But before I make my purchase, I'd like to hear what others think.

     

    By the way, the rest of my system looks as follows:

     

    Motherboard: ASUS TUF X299 Mark 2

    CPU: Intel Core i7-7800X

    Memory: 32 GB DDR4-2132 / PC4-17000 (2x 16 GB)

    Drives: 1x Kingston SKC1000960G NVMe 960 GB (for Windows and other applications), 1x Samsung SSD 840 EVO 750 GB (for P3D v4) and 1x Toshiba DT01ACA300 3 TB 7200 RPM HDD (for storage)

    Optical drive: Plextor BD-R PX-B950SA

     

    Any thoughts?

  3. I suspect it could be a software thing. Antivirus maybe? Some antivirus packages are quite heavy on the system, restricting resources to other applications such as flight sim.

     

    Other than that I agree with the posts above that the CPU and GPU are quite outdated, but that should not be the major problem. P3D doesn't lean on the CPU as much as FSX did, in fact it hardly makes any difference. Although not the best CPU, it should be sufficient. It can't be the GPU either, I got one less than you (GTX 960) with the same amount of memory and I get higher frames than you.

     

    It could be that 16 GB RAM isn't enough, or that you have slower RAM installed than your motherboard can cope with. I got 32 GB RAM myself, that could be the reason for my higher frame rate.

     

    Last but not least, how is the cooling in your system? Do you have a sufficient cooler for your CPU and GPU? Don't they get too hot? Might there be dust clogging up inside your system? Or even worse, nicotine (often a problem if you smoke near the computer). Laptops are known to throttle down if they get too hot, causing all kinds of problems. But if the cooling is insufficient it could happen with desktops as well.

    Nobody does KBUR Bob Hope Burbank airport for FSX  :( :(   :(  

     

    There was a rumor ORBX would do it, but so far I can't find any source for it.

    Hi guys,

     

    Would there be a possibility to create Orlando-Sanford Airport (KSFB)? It is quite an important hub for airlines such as TUI, Thompson and allegiant who fly there often.

     

    I think that it would be a great addition to the Aerosoft scenery list, as there are no addon scenery's of this airport in neither X-plane or P3D (except for one low quality one)

     

    Hope you will seriously consider this!

     

    So do I, however there might be a possibility for LatinVFR to do it. No promise though, but he does live in Orlando and is planning to do Orlando International. Maybe he'll make the project a bit broader and include Sanford as well.

  5. Does Apple even use DirectX? I don't know, it's a long time ago since I've last used an Apple product and I can honestly say I'm not familiar with it at all.

     

    Anyway, this article is about the Windows version of DirectX. This makes sense because FSX / P3D is written for Windows. It might or might not work on MacOS, I don't know about that, but it's not native to that platform.

    Is this project death?

     

    No, but there is nothing to report.

     

    All we know is that Jo Erlend would start developing Brussels after he finished Cologne-Bonn. The release of Cologne-Bonn was a few months ago, so if it all goes according to plan this means Brussels is only in development for a couple of months. While those first few months are important to lay a solid base, there's not really anything to show yet. It's no exception for a scenery to take up to two years development time, so have some patience.

     

    Edit by mod: Last line removed. Patrick, we told you a couple of times already we do not accept recommending customers to buy the competition. You write highly recognized and apprechiated posts, but you need to accept that this forum is part of our marketing.

    Hi

    How likely would these airports be made for P3D v4 ???

    Asia

    Bali X (WADD)

     

    Europe

    Dublin (EIDW)

    Helsinki EFHK)

    USA

    Kodiak (PADQ)

     

     

    Happy New Year 2019

     

    Pisa is already available for P3D v4 and Rotterdam is in development. Also some products are available by competitors, like Manchester by UK2000 and Stockholm Arlanda by ORBX. Sandefjord and Svalbard are not officially P3D v4 compatible, but are known to work.

     

    However I do support your other requests. Dublin, Helsinki and Keflavik are missing holes, those products just don't work in P3D v4. Needs to be said FSDG already said they'd develop Keflavik somewhere later this year, so that's one to look forward to.

    Hey Aerosoft:hi_s:

    Do you could you make Malta International Airport LMML for P3D v4???:huh:😄

     

    Regards Jammin16

     

    In the works by Simmershome, which will be freeware as with all of their products but payware quality. Of course I wouldn't turn down an Aerosoft version, but it has little priority to me.

    Would love to see a remake of Iceland X and Keflavik for P3D4.

     

    FSDG has already scheduled this, although it might take some time as they got other projects to do first. On their forums they're saying late 2019 as an estimation. Chances are that it'll just be Keflavik and not the rest of Iceland.

    Please, Please, Please make a Aerosoft A380 product. WHen this product is made please have it resemble something like the aerosoft  airbus a320 family in terms of realism. I need and must add a 4 engined heavy to my collection so please consider doing this.

     

    Sincerely Aerosoft's #1 fan, Bryce

     

    Aerosoft has already stated multiple times that they won't make an A380, the chances of this happening are absolutely zero.

    Hey there,

    What happened to your Brussels airport v2.0. I know it was about to be ready for release, but something happened at Brussels airport in reality and you were ready to make it ready for release???:huh:

     

     

    Just read the preview topic, all you need to know is in there.

    P3Dv4, Paris Orly, Daytona Beach.

     

    VR

    Todd

     

    Orly is in development by Jetstream Designs. Daytona Beach is one of the products that should work fine in P3D v4 but is not yet officially compatible. Therefor nobody can be held responsible if it doesn't work.

    Erik, this is the preview topic for the Aerosoft version. There are lots of places around to discuss other manufacturers products (like the general discussion topic), but please understand that this topic is not the place for that. Thank you.

     

    Of course it wouldn't be good if this topic was only about the competing product, I absolutely get that. But on the other hand I feel it has the right to be mentioned. That would also give us the ability to compare and maybe give some reasons to go for this one instead of the competing one. If you're simply removing every mentioning of a competing product that wouldn't feel right, it's as if you're saying "our product sucks and the competing product is much better, but as long as we pretend the competing product doesn't exist people will think this is the only one and still buy it". Of course I know the Aerosoft product won't suck, specially when Jo Erlend will be the developer, but to be honest neither does the competing product.

     

    I recall the Kiruna preview topic where ORBX Kiruna was mentioned multiple times. That's a competing product as well, how is that any different from this one? Why is ORBX allowed to be mentioned as a competitor but Digital Design / JustSim not?

     

    After this has been answered, back on topic. Not that there is anything on topic, development hasn't even started yet. But still, we might discuss how good it will be and how it might be better than the competing product.

    Hey Aerosoft, After having Heathrow to P3Dv4 I think what about Gatwick Airport (EGKK), Edingburg Airport (EGPH), Madrid Airport (LEMD) and Bilbaro Airport (LEBB) ???

     

    I would also hear if you can not get sode for Heathrow pro and to Balearic Islands Professional???

     

    Gatwick and Edinburgh are available from UK2000 as well as a whole lot of other UK airports. Madrid is known to be in development, although there is no preview topic yet. Bilbao is available from both ORBX and TropicalSim.

    Anyone wants in the future to build my homeport hanover professional? (Eddv, haj)

     

    Or the a350-1000,-900/ 787-10/a380?

     

    I could press the upvote button, but that would be too general. I can be more specific by saying I do support Hannover.

     

    The 787-10 will in time be done by QualityWings as part of their 787 package which already contains the 787-8 and 9. The A350 and A380 have often been requested and just as often been turned down, they just won't be done. Personally I don't care about them.
