Aerosoft A330 Professional Preview

how is your FPS with a330? (just like EDDF)

 

Hello Thomas!

 

Well, of course I understand why you're asking, it's a good question.  However the real answer is that it doesn't really matter, and I'll explain why.

 

First, sitting at the payware Aerosoft Frankfurt Airport (EDDF) just short of 07R with my view from the Captain's seat on the flight deck, during the daytime with party cloudy weather, running Activesky and ASCA and ENVTEX textures, no aircraft traffic, and 20% road traffic, with ORBX Global and ORBX Global Vector running, I get 32 to 36 fps.  If I go to external locked spot view it's pretty steady at 36 fps, spiking every few seconds to as high as 54 fps.

 

Why my performance doesn't matter to others?  Well, the short answer is that we simply cannot compare performance on different systems - it's just way to inaccurate as there are just way too many variables to consider. The variables I posted in the second paragraph above are just the tip of the iceberg (there are far, FAR more variables to consider). 

 

Moreover, I recently installed P3Dv4.5HF2 from ground zero (a complete uninstall along with all addons, and then reinstall).  I tested the frame rates of the A330 before I installed all the addons I have, and I was getting over 60fps from the flight deck and well over 70fps in the locked spot view.


First, we have logging/de-bugging software running along with the A330, my P3D graphics settings are at 4K, and my sliders are likely different than yours, I run a 55-inch 4K TV as my primary display along with three 23-inch monitors and all my displays are pushed by a single and vanilla GTX 1080 run with has default settings (see photo below). ZZI can change my P3D graphics settings and increase or decrease my fps while running the A330.

 

Right now the very best and most accurate answer anyone can provide you on performance is a comparison  of their performance running another aircraft, and for our purposes comparing the A320 Professional Series is about as good as it gets!  So in the end, I believe you can expect roughly the same performance that you get in the A320 to that of the A330, maybe a few frames per second less (but not many).

 

Because of the many different variables there are to consider, I'm working on a theory that comparing the time it takes to initially load P3D (let's call that PL1), plus the time it takes to load into a payware airport like Aerosoft's EDDF, divided by 2, (so PL1 + PL2 / 2 = PL3) would be the best place to start for comparing performance from one system to another.  So if PL3 is 8 seconds (like it was for me before I loaded all the various addons I have), and my performance was 52 fps on the flight deck,  one can rough out what their performance might be in comparison by comparing their load time.  It's still a working theory, and MSFS might be released before I have time to finish it, but I believe this is one of the best methods for comparing different systems that I've come across.

.

Best wishes my friend.

 

EDIT:  I realized that I had my frame rates slider set to 40 for testing something earlier today... when I set the slider back to unlimited, my frames increased to 32fps to 36fps with spikes to 42fps while on the flight deck and pretty steady at 54 to 58 fps with spikes into the 60s.  But again... different variables and different systems.

I believe this aircraft will close the P3D era for me (or perhaps it will be the FSL A321, not sure which will come out earlier). Hopefully we will get a discount for a future MSFS version, similarly to the NGXu.

Hello everyone, this is my first post. I have been reading this forum from the beginning. Just want to say what a fantastic product your team has put together. I appreciate the politeness and patience of the administrators.

Well done to you all!

The VC looks perfect! Can u tell me the landing gear’s bug fix yet? Thank you very much 

 

In the progress meeting yesterday it seemed that we know how to solve it now.  Stefan (modeler) and Frank (lead coder) are now working on tweaking it. We had great help from Alexander who did the flight model of the CRJ.

 

If you would have told me that when we started this project we would spend over 200 hours (!) on just the main gear I would have called you crazy.

About the EFB is it replaceable to the right side (F/O) ? 

 

By the way thank’s for the great work.

Well, I just want ask the landing gear's bug is fixed or not, that is what i mean!    I know this project from 2016, I know this is a hard project and i saw u guys made the project more better, I just hope this project much more better, I will buy it at the first time when this project release!

Can you share default livery list of A330? Is it going to include freighter versions?

It's only going to be the A333 with RR engines for now

If you end up with any APU "howl" sound, would it sound different inside the cockpit vs. outside?   I assume it would, and that this could be modelled?

 

I wonder if all A330 APU's sound that way, or just the ones Jackstar275 is used to hearing?

Juan Carlos, simply read the pinned post at the top of the page and you'll see the planned release date is the first week in December. You'll find any updates there as well.

 

This answers your post which is hidden because you used a huge font (maybe from your phone?) and blank space that couldn't be edited out. Don't worry though, no problems.

I'd imagine if any developer was likely to offer a discount for a different sim if it has previously used elements from your previous purchased version....... Aerosoft is that company. 

 

Absolutely.

Currently it’s only at the left side.

Actually my question was about, if we get the EFB only in one side in the cockpit. Can we move it to the other side (For example from the MCDU Settings Page)

But isn't that fully answered in Mathis' post I just linked above your post?

Let's answer it one more time then. No, at this moment if it left side only. When we have more information on framerate we might duplicate it or even make it fully independent.

My friends,

 

Mathijs asked if I would do a live stream of the A330 Beta for you guys today at 3pm (1500z) GMT/UTC.  We'll be streaming only on the Aerosoft Flight Sim Community Discord Channel, the link is below.

 

So come join us!

Thanks for the answers, if you notice any FPS problems can you make an option from MCDU or something to use just one EFB we can replace only for F/O or CPT side.

We might do that later, for now things stay as they are.

Friends,

 

We maxed out the Discord Stream pretty quickly, so we moved to Twitch for the A330 Live Stream.  The link is below:

Really nice stream Dave but one thing I didn't catch, that 2d version of the EFB, is that something you get with the plane or is it some 3rd party?

Also. What feature were you unsure i it would be ready for release regarding charts? Was it Navigraph?
