  1. Hi all,


    I am just downloading the TE SD scenery package Washington for XP and only have 900 kB speed.

    My connection can do more, is this limited by the Orbx Server? I am using Orbx Central.


    Too lucky that it's not the HD version...






    Operating system:

    Andreas, your tour group got their money's worth on that flight.  NOTE: you and Iain showed why the ORBX forums are first-rate. Two classy gentlemen demonstrating how it's done. Thanks!

    Yes Rodger, but they will spend all the rest of their money in the city afterwards! :lol:

    Thank you very much for your kind note. And yes, almost everybody here in the forums prefers to behave like a gentleman,

    and that is really pleasant.

    Andy, great tour that really lifts up the new ORBX package. May I ask what sim you are flying? I tried to get my BN-2 to port into P3D4 and got a mess. 

    Thanks a lot Rodger, would be nice if these shots could do a little advertising for this fantastic scenery package.

    Sim is P3d 4.4 and the BN-2 works without issues. Did you copy the files over from FSX? I did a full setup using the installer

    which was somewhere in a folder on my drives. And when it asked for the FSX folder i pointed it to the P3d folder.

    Don't remember exactly what I did but it was easy. The only thing which doesn't work is the GPS, but I don't need it.


  4. Hi all,


    of course I always want to improve things and so I wonder about the following:


    My simulator runs 16 gb memory and it's all 64bit of course but my P3d 4.4 and my Xplane 11.36 never use more than approx. 3,2 gb ram.

    There is always 50% of the memory not in usage while flying. And I think regarding panning around and so could be better if the sims

    use more memory. But this is controlled by WIN10 and I don't find any tweaks to adjust it. To change the priority in the taskmanager does nothing.


    So what I have is the opposite of the famous OOM-issue, even with heavy addons and settings. Does somebody know how to handle this?

    No need for an upgrade!
    P3D has always been poor at LOD, only since v4.4 have things improved.

    Yes, I agree. my system specs are even below and I don't have these blurries and my level of detail radius is only set to high.


    But my P3d.cfg is totally tweaked and probably this is not needed using a very strong machine. As the tweaks depend on the system

    and hardware I suggest that you browse the net for all the available tweaks and than try it all out. The big problem is that there are

    thousands of combinations of settings and tweaks of course. Also important is the graphics driver and the shaders as well.


    I found that I cannot use P3d 4.5 at all, don't know why, and reverted it all back to 4.4 and this is it now.

    My performance drops significantly in v4.5, terrible.




  6. Hi, I am still learning how to use Xplane because I normally use P3d and FSX. And my computer is a little weak for Xplane 11,

    I also use the GTX 1060 6G card. Recommended is at least a GTX 1070 which is a lot stronger.


    What I found now is that I get better results and performance without the hdr lighting, looks and runs very well.

    And doing so I have good results using only a simple 4x AA setting, no flickering screen at all.    

  7. This dirt indicates that the case is not tight against dust. I have the same problem with my simulator and also have to clean the radiator.

    In my other computer there are dust filtering foils installed in the case and it's never dirty inside but have to clean the foils instead. :lol:

    So whatever you use, the dust is a problem.

    Thanks Andreas.  Boeing has a lot of work to get them back flying then they have to deal with the public that may fear them.  I don’t understand the cars reference though :( 

    Hi Jack, as far as I know it seems to be that the 2 terrible crashes of the B737 where caused by a failure of an automated computer device.

    Because of this the pilots couldn't control the aircraft anymore. Such things may happen using autonomous driving cars as well.

    Yes but the shots are showing more scenery from another vendor and you cant see a lot of Orbx scenery in the shots.



    No, I don't agree again, everything outside the Manhattan Island is Orbx. How would it look without this?

    Let's say I myself am very pleased to have FTX Global available for such a scenery.

    Very nice Andreas, sure are a lot of buildings! :D

    Thank you Adam! :D

    Super shots Andreas, as Adam said, there sure are a lot of buildings in New York City.

    Thanks a lot John, it's an amazing city.

    Not a lot of Orbx in these shots though.



    Sorry Iain but I don't agree. Of course what you see here is more night lighting but without FTX Global

    the whole scenery won't work.

    Well done!  Can you maybe show some shots of the Arizona Memorial?  Just curious as to how that is pictured....

    Hi Triple John and thank you very much! You can see the Arizona Memorial on #3 left side of the Missouri Battleship Memorial

    below the Aircraft. But this is not very close, I'll do some closer shots this evening, I am using my other pc at this moment.

  12. Hi all, I am a bit late...:huh:
