FlyTampa and P3Dv5?

Post by CX 747-400 » Tue Apr 07, 2020 9:50 pm

Hello FlyTampa Team,

I am writing this assuming that you have had a chance to check your products in the V5.
If you have, are we going to wait long for updates? or should everything work just fine?

Thank you again for all you do for the Flight Sim Community! Y'all are the best!

Maybe this is one of the reasons we haven't seen any new updates yet?

I hope that we can an update ASAP. I can't wait to test my FlyTampa airports in P3D v5.

Most the serious problems were fixed in recent V5 beta builds. The only remaining issue might be some stock buildings not being removed because they changed the way excludes work.
Very easy to fix if we have to.

Recently I've tested Boston and Sydney and they seem to be okay.

Any word on performance compared to V4.5?

I've been working on a V4 and V5 update to Sydney recently and I have noticed V5 is a little smoother. Even with the enhanced atmospherics, volumetric clouds and improved lighting, V5 still preforms better using the same files and similar settings. Both sims have dynamic reflections and water quality set to max.

Very encouraging considering the V5 shot has clouds, much more autogen in the background, and a more enhanced downtown in the background, all with gaining 14 FPS. Would really love to see more screenshots from you guys this week if you have a moment prior to V5 being released, especially from airports that are heavy on frames like Boston and Toronto.

George, thank you. I'm guessing updated installers for P3Dv5 will be on the cards then?

Cheers

Only small patches will be needed I hope. Scenery using the FLytampa universal installers will be updated so you can just re-run them to get the latest files.

Boston V4 versus V5

Once again V5 looks more pleasing to the eye. Yet still manages to run faster.
Settings are pretty much maxed out in both sims again. Water reflections and quality turned up. Turn those down a bit and the fps increases.

Hi George, Nice work on Sydney, see the Kilo bays are being added... any chance of adding the international gate 50 which has the awning removed and is an actual aerobridge to fit acft type 777 on...

Hi George, thanks for your great and fantastic work with FlyTampa. You guys are one of the best in the whole flightsim community. Is it possible when you create you Sydney Update that you include Gate 50 (International)? It's used by many airlines, and with AI you need sometimes every parkingspot on the International Gates. Too busy. SODE Jetways will also be nice ? ;-) Sorry for this request, but I love your Sydney. One of my favourites.

Thanks Urmel
