Kos is one of the largest islands in the Dodecanese Island chain of Greece and is a very popular tourist destination, especially during the summer.

 

With direct service flights from most European countries, there is a good chance that you've heard of it or even ventured there for a holiday. Over 1 million tourists flock there each year to explore one of the most amazing areas in the Mediterranean.


Kos Ippokratis Airport (LGKO) is located at the central part of the island with a runway fit for virtually all aircraft - from an ATR to the A320 and even as large as a Dreamliner - Kos' Airport sees them all.

During the peak summer time, the airport sees 46 different airlines fly in with many passengers hungry to explore the sights. From Riga to Rome, Stockholm to Stansted or Milan to Maastricht, there's no shortage of airports to begin your adventure from.

 

 

Join in the fun today!

Thanks for amazing airfield :)

 

 but .. hmm. on approach CPU usage increases from 50% to 75-80 % and FPS little decrease .. (55Ffps to 30Fps), after the distance from the island, the use remains on high value (Fps too ... 30Fps). "New York .. Ultra - 40-45 Fps"

 

 

Someone similar experience ?

Check out this article in regards to using older processors at resolutions above 1080p. This pack isn't huge to begin with, so it is not as if Goya has much room to optimize it.

Beautiful screenshots @Raz Goeta love the addition of the local greek Aegean airline. The work Gaya have done have a great knack of producing miles of asphault and making it look interesting, amazing attention to detail with the assets too, great stuff!

Thanks for the great words and compliments guys! I really hope you having good time with Vienna, Kos and Zell Am See and get ready for next coming EDDT, LIRQ and ENCN (and long list of super exciting destinations we will present soon (some are really out nof the box!).

Will there be a discount for MSFS, as I already own it in X Plane 11?

For Vienna we gave 30% discount for existing cusomerts of Vienna. In addition, we reduce the prices of all of our products by great numbers (GYI- P3D and XP are still settling) For Kos no- That product has been giveaway for free for more than 8000 people.

By the end of the day we are a commercial business who also need to have profit.

yeah. i have exactly the same issue. i sent a ticket about that issue.

its only this airport with the scenery. evereything else is 55fps on high end setting 1440p. departing from this airport decreases fps to 20-30 outside and inside the cockpit. it will not increase when the airport is out of sight. i did no approach on the airway so i cant tell the opposite direction.

 

Any words from the developer regarding this?

Hi guys, 

The reason for that is the flying birds we implimented into Kos. We plan to release an update the coming week to give you the option to turn it on/off.

Meanwhile, here is the manual solution we can't describe better than @Cygnific :

 

"To save people frustration and waiting for a patch, rename in your data install folder *:\Microsoft Flight Simulator\Official\OneStore\asobo-simobjects-animals\SimObjects\Animals

Flamingo and Seagull to _Flamingo and _Seagull or delete it's folder content (after backing up obviously)

 

There is a issue with animated birds spawning."

 

**Note- it's unofficial issue and on your own risk until we will release the offical update.

 

Raz

Please help... I'm still having large the framerate-drop . I purchased KOS yesterday via the built-in marketplace in Flight Simulator. I've tried the work around by deleting the Flamingo and Seagull folders, but no success. Framerates resume to normal when the airport is no longer in view. Searching the net and this forum I found a few topics about this, but most of them give me "Sorry, there is a problem You do not have permission to view this content. Error code: 2F173/K". Second problem is that the busses on the airport all are partly underground. So the only things I see are their roofs passing by. Is Microsoft still offering an old version on their marketplace?

 

EDIT: this seems to be the problem. Installed version via MSFS says 1.01, where the Orbx Central has 1.1.0...

Hello Bart

Have you tried the install and reinstall of the product?

 

I know the marketplace takes very long to update products

 

I wanted to see the Flamingos but I have not been lucky to spot them. Do they appear at a certain month of the year or an specific time/hour? I've never seen them

 

Cheers

Carlos

Hello Carlos,

 

I did a reinstall and it seems to do the trick (still the older version though). I haven't tried to enable the Flamino and Seagull folders, so no spotting for me...  I'm very happy I can use the airport now!

 

Cheers!

Hi @Bart176

 

I'm glad you made it

 

I would like to know how to spot the wildlife as I have not seen them

Hello, I wanted to know what had finally happened with the update that was discussed in September 2020 that allowed you to activate and deactivate the birds from a control panel.

 

 

Cheers

Hello @Raz Goeta

 

Hope you are doing fine

 

As per this text

 

LGKO:

1. Massive FPS and performance improvment. We removed the animated birds and made further optimization- fixed.

4. Star on the simulator map- Added. 

 

 

I understand now why I don't see the birds.

I see no display of the star in my sim map actually I have to zoom in a lot to see the location of the airport

What should I do to have the star displayed, please? I like that
