BACKGROUND

Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (IATA: TPE, ICAO: RCTP) formerly Chiang Kai-Shek International Airport, also known simply as Taoyuan Airport or C.K.S. Airport, is Taiwan's major international gateway located in Taoyuan County, about 40 km west of Taipei City, Taiwan.

The airport is the main international hub for China Airlines and EVA Air. It is also home to TransAsia Airways, V Air and TigerAir Taiwan.

In 2014, the airport handled a total of 35,804,465 passengers and 2,088,726,700 kg of freight making it the 11th busiest airport worldwide in terms of international passenger numbers and 5th busiest in terms of international freight traffic. The busiest international routes from Taoyuan Airport in 2014 were Hong Kong (6.9m), Tokyo (2.2m), Osaka (2m), Shanghai (1.7m) and Seoul (1.6m). 

There are currently 2 operative terminals in Taoyuan Airport. Terminal 1 has 18 gates and is divided in Concourse A and Concourse B. It was opened in 1979 and renovated in 2012. Terminal 2 was opened in 2000 and is divided in Concourse C or South, and Concourse D or North. Terminal 1 and 2 are connected by two people mover lines, connecting concourse A to D, and B to C. Both terminals are connected via Skytrain shuttle. 

The airport is currently near its maximum capacity and congested. Terminal 2 is under an expansion to increase the terminal capacity by 5 million passengers. The runways and jetbridges are being expanded in order to allow regular A380 flights. So far only one A380 jetbridge has been implemented at Gate 2C. There are some plans to build a new terminal, Terminal 3, at the airport which will see a projected increase of 45 million passengers by 2020.

There are more than 50 airlines operating at Taoyuan Airport, with destinations worldwide. The airlines with more passenger traffic in 2014 were:
- China Airlines (10.2m)
- EVA Air (7.6m) 
- Cathay Pacific (3.9m)
- TransAsia Airways (1.2m)
- China Southern Airlines (1m)

The countries with more passengers in 2014 were:
- China (8.1m)
- Japan (7.2m)
- Hong Kong (6.9m)
- United States (2.1m)
- South Korea (1.8m)

SYSTEM-SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS

 

 

 

  • The Taiwan Taoyuan Int Airport was developed on a medium system for medium to high-end computers, and was tested on WinXP, Vista, Win7 and Win 8.1 (32/64 bit) platforms with medium to high-end graphic cards. 
  • Microsoft Flight Simulator X (SP1, SP2/Acceleration). FSX Gold highly recommended to see all scenery objects and effects. Or, P3D v2.5, OR FSX Steam Engine.
  • Pentium IV 2.6 GHz (2GHz Duo2Core Intel and above or equivalent advised)
  • 1 GB RAM and above recommended
  • 256 Mb DirectX 9 graphics card (512 Mb or higher recommended)
  • Word for Windows or Adobe Acrobat® Reader 6 minimal to read and print the manual.
  • 1.5GB minimum useable hard disk space.
     

RECOMMENDED SIM SETTINGS

Frame rates from scenery complexity and autogen settings were averaged at 30fps. This includes moving sliders 100% to the right. Lower settings yielded much higher frames, but our recommendation is Dense to Extreme Dense for exceptional rates. Since the scenery is 15/30cm/pixel photoreal, it is highly recommended that Mesh Resolution be set at 1 meter within FSX Display Settings (slider 100% to the right). Texture Resolution should also be set at 30cm and above (or slider 100% to the right).

Recommended Sea and Road AI Traffic settings:

There are AI boat traffic throughout the coastal waters of the Taoyuan and Dayuan areas. To maintain exceptional level of FPS, it is recommended that leisure boats be set at 30% or less. AI road traffic should be set at below 25%.

Known Third Party Compatibility Issues.

There is reported (known) issue with Orbx's FTX Vector files, resulting in unwanted duplications with RCTP custom objects and default Microsoft vector files. If you have FTX Vector, and see bridges appearing with (beneath or above) our custom bridges, simply run the FTX Vector tool to exclude its vector file bridges. 

PRODUCT DISCLOSURE and DISCLAIMER

Similar to any Flight Simulator (FS) Addons, this product may have issues that are either default (Microsoft-related) or developer-related. Issues that are MS-related, whether documented or undocumented are many, but we can only speak for our product. Although there are no micro-stutters or huge lag in fps as tested, it is advisable to lower the Water Effects within FSX Display Settings to High 2x. and set Autogen down to respectable levels for fluidity. These are recommended for lower to medium-end systems, however the scenery is meant for sliders maxed at 100% peak for those computers who can afford the high level scenery design. 

No technical issues were encountered during various beta tests, whether hardware or software- related. Instructions for installation of software are straightforward; however, venturing outside bounds of recommended installation and use is at sole discretion of End-User. We will not bear responsibility for issues resulting from installation of the product, in part or full, into former Flight Simulator platforms which includes FS2004 because the product is not backward compatible. Furthermore, we will not be held responsible if files are altered within software for any reason associated with End-User taste or choice.

The product is Non-refundable for these and various other reasons.

Always very exciting when one of your favorite developers releases a highly anticipated airport. Pacsim always succeed in developing great airports, I got most of them and they are all amazing. Development for Taipei took almost 2 years and I’m very happy to review it to see if it was worth the wait, but I dont really doubt about that .
Viele von uns träumen davon, mal wieder hinter dem Steuerhorn einer zeitgemäß umgesetzten Boeing 747-400 Platz zu nehmen. Doch wer es realitätsnah mag, muss dafür eigentlich viel Zeit einplanen – oder man fliegt eben Kurzstrecke, was meistens nicht der Realität entspricht, aber zwischen Taipeh und Hong Kong beispielsweise durchaus realistisch ist.

Pacific Island Simulations is one of the big upcoming developers in our beloved sim. The quality they produce in combination with low VAS and excellent framerates is amazing. I get 25fps at Taipei with 100% AI, GSX, AES, ASN, LOD at 5.5, PMDG 777, ORBX Vector + Global + Open LC. Now if that does not impress, I honestly don't know what will. AEROSOFT??? ARE YOU LISTENING? I OOM at low settings in Thessaloniki! Buy Taipei and support this developer because they really deserve it.

What can I say, but WOW! I love this scenery. Great textures and is not horrible on frame rates. I love flying in here and looks just like the real thing. Don't walk, run!

PIS does some amazing work that not only looks awesome, but always gives smooth, stable high FPS without ever causing OOM's.

Another feature of PIS projects is their attention to surrounding scenery that extends much further out than its rival's scenery does. In this regard, my only constructive criticism about this airport is its rather dull looking surrounding industrial areas that are very washed out photo scenery with not nearly enough autogen to fill it all in. Adding more trees, buildings, houses and shrubs would help here significantly.

Compared to their RPLL scenery, which includes the gorgeous Manila city skyline, this is almost barren on approach to the airport.

Hopefully they will update this scenery so it is on par with Manila.

This is an amazing addition to the Southeast Asia area, the hit on frames is minimal (my computer is low end, so for you high end users there will probably be no difference), the amount of detail in this addon is amazing, everything looks really sharp and crisp! I really enjoy flying out of this airport!

Unfortunately FSX only assigns visual approaches into this airport and does a really bad job at that too (most of the time I'm above 10,000 feet 8 miles out of the airport). The ILS signals are there so you can input them but it's just annoying that FSX doesn't recognize it. At least 3rd party ATC addons do so it's not that big of a deal.

Otherwise this is a top notch airport, very close to some other great addons (like PIS Xiamen or Bridge ZGGG, Taxi2Gate VHHH and Fly Tampa Kai Tak), and I would recommend this addon to anyone!
