Enormous frame-rate killer especially at night and really not worth the money!

I was not expecting great realism or minute detail in this package but I did look forward to some degree of verisimilitude and "some" attention to prominent features, unique to Malta. I was disappointed and let down. It may be because I am originally from the island and spent a third of my actual life there that this package is a let down. For someone else, who has never been there, or has never seen photos of the islands, this scenery may be only a humdrum experience but not necessarily a disappointment.

My Equipment: Alienware 980x processor, 12 GB RAM GeForce 480 main video card.

For this scenery: Maxed out Global Texture , Scenery Complexity and Special Effects (I wanted to see if I was missing anything!); Medium on Terrain and Water; Medium High global settings on Traffic.
Sitting in the default 172 Cessna, I am getting 80 fps but the place is empty and it looks like a hot Sunday afternoon when everyone is taking a siesta.

PROS: excellent frame rate throughout Malta and Gozo; Vegetation, general ground color is typical of the island; general contours and elevation, including coast seems correct; there are no glaring scenery errors such as rivers or mountains which do not exist on the island. Outside top down views look great and at 32 zoom you can get most of the island and it looks decent. At 64 zoom, (top down) it still looks good. At 1K feet looking out of the side window, I still get very high frame rates of between 95 -110 which I suppose is promising for someone with a laptop or a 10 year old system.

CONS: I buy scenery because I DO like eye candy and as close to actual reality as possible. There's nothing here! There are several blotches of identical apartment buildings (as far as I can tell, only two kinds)thrown around apparently without too much attention to real population density; nothing that looks remotely like the limestone buildings I am familiar with.

Most disappointing (and I am not religious) is the fact that there isn't a single church in sight! Anybody who has been to Malta would know that the island is littered by them . A world famous one, at Mosta is missing and so is the famous Gozo landmark of Ta Pinu cathedral.

In fact there are no landmarks of any kind except maybe what could be seen on a Google map, such as an old stadium, just west of the airport. It is as if the producer of this little gem in fact took a satellite map and simply sprinkled a bunch of unrealistic buildings on it.

Valletta the capital city, is drab and uninteresting: There are no fortresses, ramparts; the Grand Harbor looks anything but grand with what seems to be an oil refinery where the citadels of Senglea, Vittoriosa and Birgu are supposed to be. But, there ARE a lot of boats and cruiseships, including an aircraft carrier. wow!

The airport itself seems bare, with the control tower seemingly in the middle of nowhere. Buildings here are sparse, even though I am maxed out in my scenery settings. The runway headings are or seem correct and I haven't tested any ILS approaches to runway 32 yet.

The lack of landmarks and details makes this software no better than the default scenery.

On the plus side, I didn't pay much for it.

ROLAND LABORIE - VOUGHT CRUSADER F8-E MSFS
Kent
External model is beautiful...my major beef is that this airplane is ridiculously overpowered. So here is my list of things to make this airplane get a 5 out of 5 stars: - Get engine/flight model parameters correct...not even close currently - Add visual AB effect - Make the default be NO external stores - Add a paint kit - Add a an RF-8A or G variant ...a-
nd BOOM! It's a 5/5.
FLYTAMPA - LEGACY - COPENHAGEN FSX P3D3
Ian
Overall another excellent scenery from FlyTampa - great quality textures. A couple of technical issues noted. Unlike their LOWW scenery, the EKCH configuration gives only two options for runway operation. This should probably be based on wind direction on a given day, especially with those of us that use some type of real weather software. Also, I find it quite hard to believe that runway 22R would be used for arrivals with the final approach being made over the apron/gate/term-
inal areas. A more realistic set up would be using 22L for arrivals and 22R for departures.
BRSIMDESIGNS - ERCOUPE 415C MSFS
T
Went 3 stars because I love the Ercoupe so much I'm still flying this a lot, even though it's got very annoying problems. 1. The external model is absolutely beautiful, canopy may be a little oversized but not bad. Internally it's nice, but the viewing angle of the dash is strange, as if it's pointed toward the co-pilot. 2. rudder pedals, not sure if this is a limitation of the game or if it's even possible to tie in rudder controls with the yoke to match the missing pedals. By the way, in response to another reviewer here, it depends which one you have whether it has pedals or not. The one I've flown does not and all steering is by the yoke. I think ground steering is still the yoke even when one does have pedals, but can't swear by that. 3. Window fixes as mentioned in reviews would be nice, opening animation, partial opening, etc. Likewise custom call signs would be nice. 4. Feels very overpowered, but that can depend on what engine one has in it I suppose. 5. Cowl and even tail shaking with engine vibration is overboard. and 6. This is the big one I'm really here for... as mentioned by others, please fix the floating! This does feel like a glider, even at 40 knots. The Ercoupe I've flown sinks quickly, and does not bounce like mad once you're on the ground. And doesn't want to squirm all around once you're on the runway. Sure, there's no flaps, but the Ercoupe has a ton of drag with the design, wheels out, and double tail. Although it does feel stable, even a bit too much on stalls. You do feel some stall motions irl, although it really is remarkably stable even in that situation. Not trying to be nit picky, I love that BR Sim made this available and am very thankful! Even with my gripes I'm a little obsessed with this mod. If I could have anything fixed it would be that floating/glidin-
g issue for landing.
WINGSIM - MWCR, OWEN ROBERTS INTL AIRPORT P3D4

A solid product - certainly a significant step above default scenery or typical freeware. Th-
ere are some issues to note: 1) The photoscenery is low definition. It doesn't look genuinely good until about 5000 ft AGL. Though it makes for a nice initial stage to approach in a passenger jet, maintaining immersion into the lower stages of the approach would require much more in the way of hand-placed 3D buildings and vegetation. Some is included, but not enough to dispel the "flying over a blurry carpet" sense that photoscenery produces at low altitude. 2) The photoscenery has some clouds and "sunken" cruise ships in it. Those familiar with photoscenery know that this is not uncommon with Caribbean locations. 3-
) The lawn surrounding the main terminal flickers noticeably when taxiing or overflying it. 4) Hand-placed trees ended up in the water in several places south of runway 26. In spite of these issues, there are also some nice touches, such as the animated flags and dolphins. The 3D objects are well-crafted for the most part. They took the trouble of creating a night-lighting effect on the photoscenery for evening flying, and the tarmac water and night-lighting effects look quite nice as well. Though I'd probably have felt a bit disappointed had I spent the 17 Euro full price on this purchase, the sale price is very reasonable. I'll be watching to see how this developer progresses, as there is definitely promise here.
RARA-AVIS SIMS - ZIPPY SPORT MSFS
David
This plane is completely unflyable, as it is not compatible with the new (increased torque) prop physics in MSFS SU9. Regardless of the payload, fuel and CofG settings, the plane will tumble forward onto it's prop (and cannot be recovered) as soon as any throttle is applied. The developer needs to completely reconfigure the CofG config, to account for the new prop physics. I have reached out to the developer, and if the plane is fixed and becomes actually usable, I will update this review.
COCKSPUR - AEROPRAKT A22-LS MSFS
Michael
I have a real one of these aircraft so was eagerly awaiting for an MSFS 2020 sim version. Well, here it is. I love it! The one supplied is a 'glass' cockpit and therefore different to my factory(2014)la-
yout but the rest is there. It flys like the real thing. Has the great visability that the real one has and just like the real one, its a dream to fly. I praise this highly. Rega-
rds. Mike
INDIAFOXTECHO - MB-339 - MSFS
Thilo
For the price you pay you get a very nice aircraft with some nice liveries. Flig-
ht dynamics feel really nice to fly but who does really know how it should fly! Only a real MB-339 pilot could tell us. But fore sure a nice ac to fly around in MSFS.
JUSTFLIGHT - HAWK T1/A ADVANCED TRAINER MSFS
Thilo
Top aircraft with very nice paints and cool configuration tool inside cockpit. Flys very nicely even I am not a Hawk pilot who can really assess it.
SIM SKUNK WORKS - LOCKHEED FRF-104 G STARFIGHTER MSFS
Thilo
Clickspots are very difficult and do often not react. But model itself is nice.

Great airport which I owned previously when using P3D. This MSFS version looks and runs very well, and it's an interesting new location to fly to/from. Very pleased to see this scenery ported over and I hope the this developer, or others, brings new locations to this part of the world.
