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.

It's a nice nice airport. An additional airport to my existing collection of airport from Secret Studio

This add-on probably it needs an update, since floor markings (both taxiway and runway) are all white stripes without any detail and buildings aren't being rendered correctly. As for the time this review was written (sep 2022), sim's default version is actually better.

UK2000 SCENERY - JOHN WAYNE AIRPORT MSFS

What is a nicely modeled product becomes marred by incredibly bad performance. In order to make sure it was not my system or addons I was using, I had three other folks with this airport compare against my performance and all of us had the same results. There is no excuse for an airport of this size to have such a huge performance impact. My system can barely sustain 30 FPS on High settings with this airport installed. Why does an airport of this size and detail run at 30 fps while the giant KLAX down the road runs at 60-70 fps? There is something flawed with this airport's performance. It is clearly a bug in the airport. It needs another sweep of optimizations. Running the freeware KSNA which looks decent yielded 45+ FPS on our test systems. The-
re is also an ortho flaw with this airport in general. I believe it is on Asobo's end to fix. Coming in for final at this airport the ortho ground colors and quality will morph before your very eyes. It is extremely distracting and ugly to witness.
FLYFREESTD - ANTONOV AN-225 MRIYA FOR P3D4.4-5

A beautiful, very accurately reproduced plane. The systems work as you can see in the videos on the internet.The flight model seems to be very well made,you have to be careful with the choice of airport,because a fully loaded plane actually needs more than two kilometers of runway,and landing with cargo is about three kilometers.Ther-
e is a huge difference in the behavior of an empty versus a fully loaded aircraft. Starting systems and engines is a lot of manual learning,fortun-
ately there is an option to auto-start systems and engines,especia-
lly starting the various systems of the aircraft is very satisfying.An additional advantage is the ability to switch to the cockpit mode in English (Russian by default),you can do it at any time in the pop-up Configurator (SHIFT + 1). In particular,the autopilot is very complex and works differently than in Western airplanes,but after turning on the English cockpit,it can be managed.Interes-
tingly, after a closer look at the autopilot,it turns out that it has a lot of different functions that make flying easier,e.g.the plane can make 90-degree turns by itself,or circle non-stop. The plane carries several loads on its back,I liked the Molniya mini-shuttle the most. The sound of the engines is also polished,especi-
ally the roar of the engines at high revs and when starting.The plane's volume is adjusted so that it is the first plane where I did not have to silence the game to a minimum so as not to go deaf.
BEAR STUDIOS - MIG-15BIS P3D4-5 FSX FSXSE

After many years of owning Bear Studios older (and at times, frustrating) MiG-15 offering for FSX I came across this. At first I thought it was just an update of the old offering for P3D with FSX compatibility. It is not. It is an all new offering and it looks great in FSX. Gone are the baked in shadows of the old version with modern texturing applied. The planes are all really shiny, which is good because a a few of the textures represent civilian or museum owned MiG-15s! They are N15YY from the Combat Air Museum of Topeka, Kansas, 079 from the Museum of Flight in Seattle, Washington, NX87CN from Planes of Fame in Chino, California, NX90589 from the Oakland Aviation Museum, Oakland, California and my favorite (as it was the first MiG-15 I had ever seen in person on the ground and in the air) PLAAF 4115. The version in the sim has no N number but the former Combat Jets Flying Museum MiG-15 N15MG (now residing at EAA in Oshkosh) represents this plane. Best of all, this sim had done away with whatever would randomly cut out your hydraulic pump in the old version! Now the two items that kept it from getting the fifth star. Textures. While they look great and are reflective and shiny when appropriate, the camouflaged aircraft are also shiny (as are flap internals, landing gear and wheel wells. Planes. While it's great that all the planes in this addon come under one entry in Sim Objects (vs the myriad of offerings in the old one) there is no two seater offered this time around. I can only hope that comes later along with a similar update for their MiG-17!
TERRAINY STUDIOS - RV-8 - MSFS

I have to agree with one of the other reviewers as well that's it just OK. It certainly is pretty, but it's really slow. It's not nimble as far as handling and a big part of the realism for a plane for me is the sound, and this little baby sounds like it's got the default Cessna 172 sounds. That is a definite killer for me! I did give it 3 stars because it's a pretty model.

If you enjoyed the FSX version you are going to love this one. The plane itself is simple to fly but many mechanical features have been implemented to generate an extra challenge. Gre-
at job by Ant's Airplanes.
