UK2000 Scenery Bristol 2019HD: The FSElite Review

EGGD UK2000 SCENERY BRISTOL Airport P3d REVIEW
5
In 2019, UK2000 Scenery made the very conscious decision of taking a step back from scenery development to focus on creating new tools and texture sets to better position themselves in a world of detailed scenery packages. It’s no secret that whilst the UK2000 Scenery packages are adequate, they started to look dated compared to older products - hence the

MK-Studios Dublin: The FSElite Review

Mk Studios Dublin Review
8.7
MK-Studios is no stranger to creating detailed airports for our simulators. With airports such as Tenerife South v2, Lisbon and others under their belt, they have a strong history of product development. Therefore, it’s unsurprising that the community was excited to see Dublin finally get the long-overdue treatment of a true P3Dv4 native airport. Yes, we had the iniBuilds patch,

Introduction

The quest for more immersion and realism within our simulators never ends. With so many utilities released this year, it’s fair to say that there has been a lot of success as developers look to improve our experiences and keep us engaged with our hobby. To release a unique addon is no easy feat but FSReborn has done just that with the release of their AI traffic lights package, AI Lights Reborn Pro Edition for Prepar3D v4+.

This utility aims to bring more realism to our sims’ AI traffic by changing and improving the way the aircraft’s navigation lighting looks up close and from a distance. With a customisable tool, the user has full control of the configuration and management of AI traffic navigation lights giving you the options to pursue ultimate realism.

A freeware version of AI Lights is currently available from the FSReborn website with basic functionality. What the free version offers is several fixes and improvements to the Prepar3D v4 AI traffic aswell your own installed AI traffic programs. In Prepar3D, the default traffic strobe lights are invisible at long distances and this has been fixed along with improvements to the overall look of all navigation lights to achieve more realism.  With realism in mind, your own installed traffic programs will receive improvements to your overall simulator experience. The strobe lights will have dynamic lighting effects which illuminate the ground and the aircraft body. The red and green navigation lights will be dimmed as the aircraft get further away. The beacon lights have effects included which will become visible when the aircraft is on short final, with it bringing dynamic reflections on the ground and the underside of the fuselage. All of these features are daylight sensitive which means that during daylight hours the lights will become less reflective. However, it’s worth noting that this package will not give you the customisation parameters of the Pro (paid) version. This is a fixed preset meaning all of your AI aircraft will have the same effects regardless of the aircraft type.

For the purpose of this review, I will be using Flight1 Software’s Ultimate Traffic Live for my AI traffic along with Prepar3D V4.5 with Hotfix 1 (Recommended) along with the paid Pro Edition of AI Lights Reborn.
