announcement Introducing EGLC London City Airport for Prepar3D v4!

Recommended Posts

1. The product also works with Global Base or Orbx EU England (LC Region) though not seasonally blended? So in order to have proper seasonal blending, the customer will need to buy TrueEarth Great Britain South for P3d v4?

 

2. "Designed to blend best with TrueEarth Great Britain South, also works with Orbx Global Base or FTX England". So it works with Orbx Global Base or FTX England but doesn't blend well with them, requiring customers to buy TrueEarth Great Britain South for P3d v4?

 

Something tells me I should probably avoid this one unless and until someone can prove me wrong on the points mentioned above.

Looking great! But how are you dealing with performance? The London area is famous for bad FPS in the ESP engine...

I'm guessing,  if you have TE GB South, then great, it'll work nicely with it. If you don't, but have Global and FTX England, then that's OK too, but won't look as nice.

Hi 

When is EGLC ( London City) available,  I have been searching for it on ORBX site but cannot see it

That's why this is the Preview Screenshots forum :) It is not yet released.

Okay so someone else in a different forum knocked some sense into me. My previous post in this thread ( https://orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/178691-introducing-eglc-london-city-airport-for-prepar3d-v4/?do=findComment&comment=1556609 ) is very probably foolish and uninformed and I would really appreciate it if the developers chime in a bit. I totally forgot that TE GB South doesn't contain seasonal textures. This means customers of this airport wouldn't have full seasons regardless of whether they have bought/installed TE GB South or not. 

 

So what I understand now is:

 

1. Say for example you have TE GB South and this airport for P3D and it's summer time. In that case things will look 'Summer'. 

2. Say for example you have TE GB South and this airport for P3D and it's winter/autumn etc time. In that case things will still look 'Summer'. 

3. Say for example you have ORBX Global Base, OpenLC EU, FTX EU England etc and don't have TE GB South and it's winter/autumn time. In that case the coverage area for this airport will still look like 'Summer' time but outside the coverage area it will all look like winter/autumn time

 

I think I can live with that, and therefore I'm adding this airport to my wish/buy list. However, I'd like to make a request to the developers to confirm the accuracy of the three points mentioned above, and to show us some screenshots of how the airport looks like with only ORBX Global Base, OpenLC EU and FTX EU England installed in Summer and Winter time.

 

Thank you devs.

Another question: The xplane 11 version of this airport had the following feature, and I quote: "Dynamic Fire & Rescue response -  fire service will respond when an aircraft emergency is declared on approach. Fire trucks will deploy to your aircraft position once on the ground" https://orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/176628-london-calling-eglc-london-city-released-for-x-plane/

 

Will this version (the one for p3d) have that feature too?

If EGLC is one season only, ie Summer, this may be acceptable. The location, can be described as temperate urban, does not change much over the year. No snow, but that is only occasional. I have  EU England, and will be purchasing. The airport can sit as a little temperate island, surrounded by the seasons. Looking forward to this one.

Before I buy, can I ask how does the airport blend in if I only have FTX Global and OpenLC EU installed? If it's designed for TrueEarth as the product pages says, does this mean there's no seasonal variations at all? Yes I know that small patch of grass is not the biggest deal, but still, one of the great features of ORBX with FTX always was that seasons are covered for. Would be shame if this got dropped just because ORBX thinks everyone is using TrueEarth :(

Never mind, sorry about that, just saw it within the product page text, no seasons. What shame! That's very disappointing :( I can't afford to fly with TrueEarth due to FPS penalty, and no I don't want to buy anything that doesn't have seasons covered!

Great airport! I notice a lot of shimmering on the airport and surrounding buildings (1080ti, 4K). Is this a P3D v4 issue? Regards.

 

Hi Peter,

  My specs are close to yours and I didn't see shimmering.  Perhaps a Graphics setting?  Please post about it in the P3D support forum and we'll sort it out for you.

Welcome to the forum!  Are you running the new Central instead of the older FTX Central?  I think this might be the reason why you can't download it, I may stand corrected though.

You can get it here.  You'll need it to install EGLC.      https://orbxdirect.com/central 

You don't have to uninstall your current FTX Central 3 but you may after getting to know the new Orbx Central!
