This is just AMAZING! If you need people to test it like what we did with MSP I am happy to apply :)

Will the new taxiway textures include the little pink circles that MSP has? Just asking because SFO has them in real life also!

Be really nice to fly back to SFO in p3dv4. Although no interest in Dynamic Lighting. On a 1080Ti and it still kills frames. Glad we can shut it off via the manager.

Hi there,
As this is not necessarily a "new" product, will it be released for FSX?

Best regards.

Wow!
It looks amazing! Thank you for the great work and always trying to improve!

Will this release fix the problem with AES Duplicated Gates? or it is not contemplated?

Thanks,
Best Regards

WOW Mir!!! Stunning!!!

Congrats, you just made all the high end developers that we all love look like they are still designing for FS98. :lol:

I had to take a double take at the previews, I thought they were real photos of SFO.

Fantastic! Can we expect runway 29 and the associated Air Canada company charts to be included? :mrgreen:

Mir, you are a prince among men, or women, although that would make you a princess. Anyway, you certainly know how to take care of your customers.

Thanks all for your comments, I'm glad to hear there is interest since this took a huge chunk out of routine production with no return on investment expected.
Rose72 wrote:WOW... Mir, what PTA preset and HDR settings? please share...
I've had quite a few people on Facebook ask as well. I use totally custom PTA/HDR/Reshade settings. I'd be glad to post them right when I release v2.

Yes absolutely, I made sure to convert Taxiway Charlie into a runway. It's pretty narrow, short with a low expectation of survival, but a good challenge for seasoned Air Canada pilots :D

Sorry, those changes are not included.

With v2 you can just turn off AES. SODE jetways work quite nicely and support dual jetways as well.

Yes absolutely, this is for FSX as well, albeit a few less features. Unfortunately the FSX conversion is what is keeping this release from happening as there are some issues.


OK.. I think I answered all questions. Back to the cave :shock: :D

I'm glad you were one of the signatories on that future development memorandum. As a P3Dv4 user, this dual sim development cannot end soon enough for me. Aggravating to know we could have this likely now if wasn't for that ancient FSX.

Well, maybe not expected, but happening - I just picked up KSFO-HD based on seeing the v2 previews, so I think it will generate new sales!

Agreed. It was sad to say goodbye to my FSX install but after I few days with P3Dv4, I have not missed it one bit. Out with the old in with the new. Focusing resources on the new platform is a good decision for both the developer and the consumer.

I am very curious as to how the transition to the new system (FB Manager) will work.

Very nice to see that you deliver such great service! Thank you for that!

Hope you will also consider doing some African airports as no one is making them! (Golden opportunity to be a pioneer!) some suggestions: FAOR, HAAB, FACT.

Thank you for your remarkable work!
