Quick question, how well will the scenery cope with VAS and will it be attractive for OOMs. I got UTX USA v2 as well as FTX Global. With my last scenery purchase I failed big as I bought FlyTampas YYZ and even on Sparse Scenery Complexity I always crash 40miles out.

Will it be more demanding vs FSDT Vancouver?
This is hands down.. the most optimized scenery I've ever made. The download size is a hint of that, being only 160mb. The VAS usage compared to some of the recent "heavy hitters" which I won't name, is MUCH lower. I believe FTX Global will be fine with SFO, as long as autogen sliders are kept under control.

However, I know people will still run into OOMs trying to run all their addons. For example, in testing it was demonstrated that you can easily get an OOM arriving into a FLAT SFO, with no buildings or textures at all... just by running 777 + REX + FTX Norcal + AI Traffic + high settings. Beta testers and myself included consistently received OOM with FTX Norcal. That one in particular is an example of a very very nice product, that needs to be turned off if you're going to do airliner flights. That one alone, just with FSX and no other addon uses more than half of your 4GB right at startup (and gradually increases) Upon release, I will have a performance guide to make the most out of this product.

There is definitely a discount for current SFO customers. You will find a coupon in our forums, and other places that you will need to enter during purchase. It will check your email in the system if you purchased KSFO before, and if you have, you receive the discount. The discount amount is announced tomorrow at release time.

Thanks Mir,

My sim is ran very conservatively.

LOD @ 4.5
Scenery Complexity @ Normal or Sparse
Autogen Density @ Normal

So I doubt it will be a problem as you can see. I only fly 777 and Highly modified Airbus A319 from Aerosoft (I modded it to be an ACJ319 for flights up to 6000nm)

I ran a lot of pretty addons its just that I don't feel like turning everything off like some suggest just to land at an airport. Unless it eye is so precise for eye candy I don't really see a need of scenery Complexity being higher then normal. And huge autogen is overkill.

Thanks again,
Konatantin

I'm getting this strange message too, and also the FSDT addon manager says (main menu, inside P3Dv2.5) that I have installed the TRIAL version of San Francisco HD and that is OUTDATED (which is not true!). Very strange and indeed I'll stay away from this KSFO HD update after I'm sure it will not break my P3D setup, which is currently running perfectly.

That message was showing because the "check" file it's looking for was very similar in a different product, for a short period the Addon Manager thought you had the original KSFO installed. This has been fixed, if you update Addon Manager or install another Addon Manager product.

It will not break your P3D installation ;)

Also impatiently awaiting the (discounted) KSFO release, I am wondering which 12 is the '12pm' shown in the release announcement. Is this noon or midnight? Seriously. I wouldn't like to miss the release by 12 hours. :mrgreen:

Mir quick question, and I may have already missed this, but a while back, id say a year or so I asked about the possibility of ever adding the united express building/mini terminal, and I may be wrong without being able to see that original post, however I believe not necessarily you but somebody said that it would be added in the KSFO update being the one due to release tomorrow. Now the Air Daily X video that I just watched, I unless I missed it, I didn't see it, is that no longer happening? or is it going to happen in a future update? For UA Express its a good building to have esp if Razbam every releases the EMB-120, which would go well with the new KSMF due to also be released.

Could you point out where it is via google maps? UA express is all over the place these days using a lot of terminal 3.

I was there (at SFO) last Thursday. A lot of the UAX still park at gates 76-79, but also a few of the 80's. That's about it though, no special terminal unless I missed something. The first time I visited SFO, back in 2008, the E120s parked at 76-79.

Amir the preview on ADX was awesome, i just short of words to describe what a wonderful piece of art is every airport that you design and create for Flight sim. Thanks for all the hard work that you put in each of this addons and tomorrow ill be getting the fifth one from you. (This would come with a discount on top of it =))

I just have one final question for you. There is a particular reason why South America and Africa has been overlooked by Airport developers like Yourself, FSDT, FSDG or Fly Tampa. Non of you guys had ever made a Scenery on those parts of the world.

Places like SCEL, SAEZ, SKBO, MPTO, FAOR, HTDA, FACT just to name some of them.

There is not good Aerial Imagery for those places or any technical aspect that is causing this overlook from your side. I will presume there is a good market in those airports awaiting for some company like yours to develop them.

Thanks
Luis Serrano

Hint: Those are mega airports ;)

Not sure if I uploaded this image correctly but this is a sample of what the BLDG used to look like,
[http://www.airliners.net/photo/United-Express-(SkyWest/Embraer-EMB-120RT-Brasilia/0327229/L/&sid=d347b7e841f09c31c0ab0ce6b125f07b][/img]

Apparently they moved operations as seen below, sorry that last time I was their and saw it and went through it was prop 2009. I did find imagery on google earth, however I don't know how to upload it or attach it. If you go back to 2004-2008, it is just to the west of the United International Terminal, right off of taxiway Bravo to the right, where Bravo becomes the Ramp area, right after Bravo 5. It appears that the BLDG has been torn down, and now you have to make an even longer trip via terminal 1. I apologize for my error. AWESOME SCENERY
Below is a site that talks about the change to move UAX to terminal 1
[http://travelskills.com/2012/05/08/unit ... -1-at-sfo/][/url]

One thing that I noticed in the scenery which may help, in the same areas as I reference above, the new scenery has a big rectangular shape which has a different color then the rest of the surrounding area, that is where the old bldg used to be. It also has markings of 81-B, 81-C and 81-D on google earth
