Developer Imaginesim has released their new version of Austin Bergstrom International Airport (KAUS) for P3Dv4. Highlighting ‘vastly improved’ performance, the result of a complete model optimization and recompile.

A post on the developers Facebook page says the airport features a big improvement in performance because the procedures are optimized for P3Dv4. According to the developer, this results in a 25 percent increase in framerate speeds over the previous P3D version.

The airport also uses high-definition building texturing and improved ground polygons. According to the developer, all of these improvements promise fluid usage even with complex airliner cockpits and high density AI coverage.

The airport can be purchased directly from the Imaginesim website for $29.99 USD. The update is free to existing KAUS P3D and FSX customers via the Imaginesim Operations Centre.

As per our Community Charter, all of our reviews are free from bias, prejudice and favouritism. Don't forget, each reviewer has their own style and thoughts, although they all abide by the Review Guidelines - something I suggest you read.

Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport is an incredibly busy airport; it’s the busiest and biggest airport in the world. It has about a million aircraft movements and more than 100 million passengers every year. It’s a major hub for Southwest, but Delta is the main airline in Atlanta. Atlanta is also jokingly called “Delta International Airport”. The airport has about 300 stands spreading across 4700 acres.

And that size is exactly the problem, because modelling an airport that big in a simulator that is always limited on performance is quite the challenge. And besides the usual look and feel of the scenery, performance will be the major focus of the review.

Installation and configuration

The installation process was easy. Simply run the installer and that was all. Or so I thought, because the SODE jetways didn’t work. I had to manually download and move the SODE files to the correct folders to get it to work.  However, after I fixed those issues I had no problems enjoying the scenery. (EDIT: SODE Jetways are now available via the configuration menu. Check out this post for more info: ImagineSim Scenery SODE Update.) Imaginesim also provides you with the usual documentation, including some information about the airport, a chart, and a guide of how the docking system works. It also includes a nice FAQ section at the back of the document.

First, I had to choose the options I wanted. There is a special configurator for the scenery where you have a range of options. Simply select the options you want, and it automatically configures your scenery. There is also a option to turn off dynamic lighting, choose seasons and many more.
