Orbx LOWI / Innsbruck X-Plane

Post by Charlie Bravo »

As Orbx have a sale on, I thought I'd purchase a couple more airports, although the exchange rate didn't go in my favour.

Innsbruck isn't just sold as an airport, it's a mini region in typical Orbx style and I'm rather impressed. The Rotate MD-80 has been my chariot of choice for the last few days.
Nigel - just tell Babs it's all part of your recuperation, she'll understand :thumbsup:

I can only wish Chris! :((

Oh well, have to wait until much later.........Brilliant screenshots though Chris, have to say that the default MD80 is my favourite aircraft and has been since purchasing X-Plane 11. Just needs a few tweaks on the aerodynamics to make it better.

It seems that you have an ultimate pc, can you tell us about it please? Are you happy with frame rate and smoothness?

Thank you mate.

I find X-Plane does have a visual advantage over FSX and P3D although I only ever used FSX.

As for my system, it's not what I'd call an ultimate PC as such but I'm very pleased with its overall performance. It is...

AMD Ryzen 5 2600X Processor
Nvidia RTX2070 Graphics card
32gb 3000Mhz DDR4 RAM
500gb SSD for Windows
2tb SSD for games including X-Plane

Frame rate wise, as with most Sims it depends on the aircraft flown and scenery used. I can happily get over 30fps over London using Orbx True Earth scenery and that is on a 2K resolution monitor.

Nigel has an Intel based system and we get very similar results across the board, although AMD Ryzen chips are cheaper.

That is true as I have an i7-900K not overclocked I have to hasten and the rest is the same as Chris, I think we are both really looking forward to the release of Vulcan which will improve the performance greatly.

cloud pack v1.0 By Panda

X PLane repeats the same textures for clouds too much but better than default ones
