Just taking a short break with a KJAX-KBHM Hop - Xplane11

Post by Michael_B767_ATP »

Hi Everyone,

As some of you know I'm in the process of converting my flightdeck from P3D to XP11. I needed a break from all the reading/tinkering so I decided to take a short hop from KJAX to KBHM.

Do you prefer the camera up high or the placement of the camera at the end of the video during final.

Hi Mike,

How about one of each :D

I think the later is better, I felt that on taxi I could not see anything apart from the ground in front of the aircraft.

I will have my current batch of cockpit enhancements wrapped up this weekend so should be able to start looking at X-Plane next week.

Couple of (more) questions.

1. Performance looks so much better with x-plane compared to Prepar3D especially when running at the high end of graphic demands i.e 4K.

Given that you are not running any add-on scenery or airports in X-Plane at the moment, I wonder what the comparison in performance would be against Prepar3D with no add-ons or conversely, I wonder how X-Plane would continue to perform once you start adding in 3rd party airports and scenery or ortho scenery?

2. It would be interesting to see a few flights in daytime so we can see how the scenery looks.

Keep up the great work.

David

Hi David,

Performance is far better than P3D, no doubt about it I see it first hand.

I've since added the following free HD addons into XP11. The only real hit in performance I've seen is with road Traffic.

1. HD Water
2. HD Trees
3. HD Mesh Terrain
4. HD Clouds
5. Enhanced Airports (generic)
6. Enhanced Lighting
7. Enhanced Roads
8. Plane/Car Addon Library
9. Road Traffic

Note: I tried World Traffic 3, but all it did was crash the systems.

I don't have any addon airports just the HD update, I was thinking about purchasing KLAX. I'll get a video online once it's set up.

Hi David,

Just finished recording KLAX addon by MisterX6, my understanding is that this is the latest and greatest as far as airports go in XP.

I can say without hesitation she is very smooth and I'll have the video online shortly (need to edit it) showing the VERY NICE performance.

Just a few MINOR stutters were noted, this is "STUNNING"!

I am now convinced that P3D will be off my computer before years end!

Great.

I was just reviewing KLAX by MisterX6 this morning.

I have been doeing a lot of flying between KLAX and KLAS recently as it’s a nice short trip, so I will be setting that as a comparison when I try X-Plane.

Look forward to seeing your video.
