  1. My system RAM usage went all the way to 28GB when I used PilotEdge! I monitored using MSI Afterburner software at : https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/msi-afterburner-beta-download.html It'll work on most if not all video cards. Fortunately I have 32GB. I don't use it now though!
  2. Well said Nick. I too am considerably turned off by such discussions. Perhaps ORBX could add a filter to blank out "FS2020" on the fora?
  3. Nice shots, as usual Iain. Can you confirm traffic flows over the GG Bridge please? Can't see anything on the road! Thanks
  4. Well they can't be from Mars. I mean, the chances of anything coming from Mars are a million to one they say!
  5. You are missing some ORBX libraries and also Shoreham Roads. I suggest you run "verify files" in ORBX Central, and add the ORBX Libraries to your account and install them. I am attaching a revised scenery_packs.ini for you to try if you want. Your original was in a big muddle. scenery_packs.ini
  6. John you need to also turn off "Draw shadows on scenery". It's a resource hog and will decimate your frame rates. It might also bake your noodle to know that my screenshot is at 1920 x 1080 on a 27" monitor, so you don't need the ultra-high settings as Jon above says. The other thing that might surprise you is I have a Haswell 5820 CPU clocked at 4135, rather than the stock 3300, and a lowly GTX980Ti card. With this configuration I can easily run in VR "virtually" anywhere and it's more than adequate. I don't need 90fps, nor do I seek that. It's whatever one perceives as smooth. In VR it's a bit of a myth that you need 45fps per eye, it's what the brain interpolates that's important. Same with the monitor; if it looks smooth to your eye, it is smooth. Don't get too hung up on framerates.
  7. Well my cousin had to cancel a skiing holiday in the Cairngorms in the middle of last Winter because there wasn't any then either!
  8. I've attached another version for you. Don't forget your graphical sliders may need to be set higher (vis a vis the number of world objects) because if set too low, you won't see everything. ORBX recommends the sliders be set to "MAX" but your pooter may not be able to handle it! scenery_packs.ini
  9. I also added a screenshot showing my version of the same area.
  10. John Please post your scenery_packs.ini file so we can take a look. I also agree with Jon above. The default X-Plane look ain't that good, to be sure, and will require "tweaking". But we can get there for you!
  11. On the other hand I've learned an awful lot more about my "unmentionables"! Cheers Rodger
  12. I have attached a revised scenery_packs.ini file to this post. Missing from your ini is the entry: SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/yOrtho4XP_Overlays/ and this should go directly above the ortho4xp entries. I am assuming that you generated overlays when you built the tiles? _____________________________________________________________________ Next please screenshot your graphics settings within X-Plane so we can see the slider positions for complexity etc. _____________________________________________________________________ Next kindly disable this entry in your ini file as shown, just to eliminate a possibility: SCENERY_PACK_DISABLED Custom Scenery/OpenSceneryX/ _____________________________________________________________________ Finally please take a screenshot in flight of a view with which you are particularly displeased, showing the exact co-ordinates so I can compare mine with yours. _____________________________________________________________________ Best wishes. scenery_packs.ini
  13. Hi Doug I prefer not to think of myself as a "victim" or I'm fighting a "battle". I prefer to think of it as a minor inconvenience and part of the circle of life! Thank you for your thoughts; much appreciated. Fizz
  14. Thanks John, most kind of you. Best wishes.
  15. Interestingly I run exclusively in VR and don't see the problems that you see. What are your computer specs, as a matter of interest? Also please attach your scenery_packs.ini file in your Custom Scenery directory and let's see what we can do.
