An Even Dozen: P3Dv3 Update Previews for Twelve Airports

Recommended Posts

Ha. That 's what I was going to say cabnz.  The shots look amazing.  I am still running P3D V2.5 mainly because I hadn't used it much at all and wanted to get some use of it before I jump on the P3D V3 bandwagon, but I might just hurry and jump on that wagon after seeing these shots.  Actually I'm also still making use of my original FSX, and very recently FSX:SE.

 

All of the work going on to upgrade these and the rest of the ORBX catalogue to work seamlessly with upgraded sims is very much appreciated.  

 

Cheers,

Jarrad, this is an update I've been waiting for. Contains quite a number of my favorites like KJAC, KPSP, KMRY... Many, many, thanks for your hard word.

 

And  if you're done with these, we certainly wouldn't mind something new from your shop :-)

 

Kind regards, Michael.

You gotta love it! Thanks for the headups and forthcoming updates that bring a smile to my face. Looking forward both to these and other future projects that you may be working on.

Great news that the last few P3D v2 updates are finally coming out, and they're v3 ready too!

I hope the v3 update process doesn't drag on like the v2 updates did, which frankly put me off the whole P3D platform.

Many thanks Jarrad for this very informative update on these airports.

Plenty of work involved here which is greatly appreciated.

Shall look forwards to flying at these airports in V3.0 when they come available.

Almost the same for me Scott except no FSX SE but have V3.0 up and running. Worth buying V3.0 as there are so many ORBX releases already out there with quad installers.

I echo the sentiment of thanks expressed here for all the work put into these new installers, and freely given at that. Now just to decide what new batch of airports to buy...

What a portfolio! And to think it all started at Jandakot. I will add my post to the others thanking you and your team of helpers who are doing a great job of bringing these fields into the current sims. Much appreciated of the update as to where all these fields are at in the process.

No worries at all Michael, I've always got something new cooking in the background :)

Excellent news, Jarrad.  One quick question - do you know if the runway texture issue at Felts will be fixed when the new installer is created?  If you're not sure what issue I'm referring to, see: http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/57210-ksff-runway-markings/#comment-513996

 

 

Thanks for the reminder Scott - I've put it on the to-do list for the KSFF update.

 

Cheers,

Jarrad

Outstanding news, Jarrad.  Thanks for your and all the developers time and effort.  I've been a holdout on making the P3D migration for a few reasons (primarily the thousands of dollars in FSX-era addons I have that aren't P3D friendly yet), but the upgrade of all the ORBX products to P3Dv3 is going to make me do the transition.  Building a new flight sim uber computer to make the move to P3Dv3 right after Christmas.  Great work and customer support on ORBX's part in doing all of these updates.

Orbx's very high add-on quality is what led me to first purchase one of their products.  I have been pleasantly surprised with the breadth and scope of their continued development, and look forward to many new product purchases.

 

With their dedication to updates like we have seen for these newer versions of FS software, either FSX Steam or P3D versions, it has become clear that Orbx's provides the best value for a simmer's dollar, as well.

 

When your customers are just grateful to be customers (like me), you are doing something right.

 

Thanks, Orbx and Full Terrain team!

Really Happy for my favourite airport KPSP. Just a quick question, KPSP update will be available as soon as Southern California scenery will be released?

Thanks Jarrad for this!

Hi,

 

would it be possible for the new KPSP installer to solve this long-standing support issue between KPSP and VECTOR

Hi Jarrad,

 

firstly, let me add my thanks and appreciation to you and all the other folks putting this fantastic world together. Wonderful stuff, and it's going to take up a vast amount of my retirement just floating around across it all.

 

I also have a question. I am primarily using P3D 2.5 and wherever I find an add-on (aircraft or scenery) that apparently won't install to it I have been getting round that either by manually copy files/directories etc across from my FSX/SE installation or using something called the "FSX to P3D Migration Tool" which spoofs the installer to think it's installing to FSX. I see you talk about updates to various ORBX airports I have installed, but does that mean updates to the actual sceneries or just the installers? Presumably my FTX Central would automatically update anything that needed it?

 

(If this is the wrong place to post this question, my apologies, and feel free to delete/ignore this)

 

Again, many thanks and keep up the excellent work,

 

Andy

Sorry for the late reply Stefano - I missed your question earlier. At this stage it will be looking like the SCA will be released before the KPSP patch - this is due to the fact that the testing team are focusing much of their energy on preparing SCA. But all things going well, the KPSP patch will not be very far behind.

Can you add photo ocean textures for the reefs off the coast of AUS especially in the YBCS package?

 

G'day B77X, I'm not sure if you're aware already, but YBCS already includes a large section of lower-resolution photoreal for the Great Barrier Reef. This encompasses a stretch of the reef approx 250km in length, from Palm Island through to Port Douglas - I've attached a shot from Green Island looking north.

G'day Andy,

 

For the airports you already own and use in P3Dv2, some of these new installers will include updated content for FSX & P3Dv2, whilst others will only update the product to install and work correctly in V3 - my product rundown in the opening post will give you a good idea of what to expect. Otherwise, it's worth keeping an eye on our release announcements forum - each new announcement topic will give you the information on updates (if any) to FSX/V2 installers.

 

Cheers,

Jarrad

I must be flying in the wrong location, I will look again, did not realise there were photoreal textures for some of the reefs. Thanks Jarrad.

Hey Jarrad

 

Will you be placing the Atlantic Aviation Building (FBO) at KPSP anytime soon?  There is still no FBO building there where it should be.  Thanks.

Hi Jarrad,

 

sorry about the delay in acknowledging your reply - I'm new to this forum lark generally and haven't got used to the whole notifications and replies bit yet. But thank you for your reply and I'll go back now and read through your initial post more carefully.

 

cheers,

Andy

I thought Cairns was 1.25? I downloaded and installed the v3 version last night and its v1.20?

Looks like "1.25" for Cairns was another "typo" in the Cairns preview screenshots, the correct version number is apparently 1.20.  The same confusion also occurred with KJAC as reported here--the KJAC preview screenshots said 1.15, but the actual number is 1.10.

 

Apparently, there were no functional enhancements/updates made to the Cairns and Jackson Hole airports, and Orbx now avoids updating version numbers if the only update is P3Dv3 installer support (to help prevent unnecessary downloads by users who don't run P3Dv3).
