    The future

    Fair enough Terry, but please ask Benny via PM who the author was instead, otherwise this topic gets redirected into a topic about a certain author instead of it's intended subject matter started by the OP....in other words, this topic is not here to zero in on another companies view points.

    The future

    Yes Terry, and it does not matter who the author was for the purpose of this topic...:)

    The future

    Ok, now that we got that out of the way and it is way off topic, I will clean out the above irrelevant posts.

    Wish List

    Hi, welcome to the forums I would also like to thank you for your comments, and I can understand how first impressions can be varied but legitimate. Everything I say and do here is available and visible to the entire community, which in my opinion brings accountability to whole new level, the amount of knowledge and experience that exists among this community of flight simmers could never be duplicated in a one on one phone or email based support system. The only reason we are here is in hopes to provide the best Orbx product experience possible. Looking forward to your continued contributions to our community.
  6. I am excited and looking forward to another big performance upgrade hopefully in just a few months.

    I'm curious!

    Hi P3Dv3 is still a 32bit program, with VAS issues as FSX. P3Dv4 is the 64bit sim you want that no longer has the VAS issues. ASF2 and X-Plane 11 are also 64bit sims with no VAS issues. The VAS issues you are curious about have been beat to death for many years now....this is why they have evolved to the 64bit simulators.
  8. Hi Nick I had England activated with TEGB and it was consuming 15.8gb and 10.8gb of vmem at EGLC. Since deactivating England, I am using 11.5gb ram and 7gb vmem.
  9. Hi Also, unchecking/deactivating the four England Region scenery library entries seems to free up another 4gb.

    Is the Radeon VII 16gb Perfect for 4k Prepar3D?

    I also doubt the Radeon VII 16gb will out perform the 2080 in regards to FPS, but I am also wondering like the OP if P3Dv4 will be making use of more and more vmem as it evolves? Currently, my GPU seems to be using most of the 11gb as in the below image while departing EGLC with TEGB South.
  11. I still have no problems signing in to my FSS account and accessing my products....

    CPU, GPU and Motherboard - upgrade advice

  13. Thank you everyone for your contributions.
  14. They should be placed exactly where the installer puts them. Then use the instructions below to set insertion points as required.
  15. Hi When Global Base is installed the below scenery library entries will be present. And as stated above, there will be no control panel. FTXAA_ORBXLIBS ORBX!OPENLC_BASE ORBX!OPENLC_EUROPE1 ORBX!OPENLC_NAMERICA1
