Netherlands TrueEarth Coming to Aerofly FS 2!

Recommended Posts

Wow, this really looks quite something. It will also give us the added bonus of seeing how a full region works in terms of performance. Maybe the afs2 naysayers will have to quiet :)

 

if if we could get a real weather generator we will be 1/2 way there......

I wish that you (ORBX) would write coordinates on the pictures. Especially when they show lots and lots of pictures from the P3D version, there were lot of places I would like to see/overfly, but haven't got a clue to where it was.

I know you will say that's part of the fun to go and explore, but I'm not just talking about The Netherlands, but all the regions you show off.

I have bought the P3D version, but this is what I have been most eagerly waiting for.

  • 85,000km2 of photoreal terrain at 1m resolution 

 

Two questions:

 

1. if I recall correctly the P3D version had 1m resolution in certain area's and not everywhere. Does this mean the AFS2 has higher resolution all over the country? Or am I mistaken? (I remember asking for high resolution all over the country because AFS2 lacks seasons so the AFS2 download size wouldn't become bigger than the P3D download size even with higher res textures all over the country.)

 

2. Do you already know the download size of this addon? Someone asked about this on another forum.

Obviously.

I could have worked that out.

 

LOL Yes, of course, I know, sorry, I didn't mean to offend you. ;) I am also DYING to hear when it will be released but usually Orbx doesn't give dates.

No offense taken.

 

Like you I have been waiting months for this to be released.

We have worked closely with IPACS to really optimise this release and the FPS even in Amsterdam and other large cities is off the charts! In some areas beta testers have reported over 270FPS!!

 

There are even further optimisations coming so performance will increase even more. Rest assured you will have a rock solid 90FPS in VR no matter where you are in this scenery.

 

Even so, be careful with sliders - setting shadows to insane on mid-spec PCs may affect performance, and also don’t set VR over sampling too high - 1.2  to 1.4 is a good level for great cockpit fidelity.

Wow. I really hope we see a shift into the next gen sims. I'm a p3d and x plane guy but i just don't get that excitement anymore from them. Tweak this, change that, lower this, increase that, aa issues here, night lighting issues there. Like i do enjoy the tweaks at the same time because it gives us options, however im waiting for that new WOW flight sim. AFS2 looks like heading that way.

Yes, if you want utterly smooth performance out of the box, get Aerofly FS 2! You won't believe how smooth it is until you tried it yourself. Install, pull all sliders right and enjoy.

 

Problem may be though that AFS2 is indeed 'heading that way' and that it seems to become quite a long way... Luckily Orbx has hopped on board to make the trip a LOT nicer! ;) 

 

AFS2 is great for my current simming needs, which is why it is the only sim I have installed, but if you can't live without weather or ATC or study level planes you still need to keep another sim installed. But even then AFS2 is great to have alongside it for those perfectly smooth flights! :)

 

BTW Although a lot of people call AFS2 a VFR and/or VR sim I only fly it in 2D and I only fly the Q400 (and sometimes the Airbus). Though the Q400 is lacking a working FMS everything else I have to do to get from A to Z I can do just as I did with the Majestic Q400 in P3D. It keeps my just as busy! AFS2 has a lot more on offer than some people think. It is indeed 'heading that way'! 

 

PS I do plan to also fly the C172 above TrueEarth Netherlands though... ;)

Sold.... To be honest my ORBX friend... I only fly AF2, P3D V4 is no longer on my rig. I had it with complex update, always trying to optimize this one and crappy FPS

YES! Just amazing!

I am looking forward to the flights over Netherlands TrueEarth with my Oculus Rift.

Yes, AFS2 is great for my current simming needs. Specifically, the upcoming helicopter for AFS2 will make flying over such a scenery to a pleasure.

Anyone? :P Thanks in advance. 

 

Where possible issues have been looked at but remember this is a depiction in detail of a whole country so there will be priorities for what is important and what is less important.  It's not physically possible for even a team to check every building, feature or landmark is represented, and there must always be a line drawn under what determines feasible scenery for the price.
