  1. Hi Fellows - Hmmm...that is strange, but you're following all of the correct steps to isolate the problem. I bought the Seattle Scenery and installed it with Orbx TIW installed and did not experience a CTD when landing at KTIW after starting at KSEA or KRNT. But I'd be happy to test scenarios to try to re-create the problem if it helps! I will try my best to get my system to CTD (but it never seems to, fortunately, except post most recent update if I try to touch my new Carenado planes sun visor). Another thought - but be CAREFUL wit
  2. Amazing shots Dario!! I have the M20R too but am struggling to land slowly enough approach speed wise! Steve
  3. Hmmm.....good news and bad news. The good news is that I was able to fly the flight plan route in the G36 from 1S2 to KORS without a CTD - and the bad news is the same - I can't re-create it. But I missed the Flight Following element - but that should be the only difference between my flight and yours - and I got to Orcas OK (jaw dropping scenery is correct BTW). Does the CTD happen even when you're not video capturing the flight? I've never taken video myself but imagine that might strain memory etc. and maybe when you approach KBVS and all the autogen l
  4. Interesting - when beta testing P3Dv5 TE Washington we had some CTDs but the root cause was found and I've not seen any in this area and it's one of my favorite haunts. But let me give it a try and see if I can re-create the same (G36 1S2 to KORS with flight plan, 6,000 Feet). Stand by.... Steve
  5. Gorgeous set of shots from the new sim Dario! Steve
  6. I have a very similar system to yours, Condor, and I’m able to operate at a 4K resolution quite smoothly at 30-40 FPS and enjoy Orbx’s airports (although with reduced and carefully chosen settings) - still I think it looks great and it operates far more smoothly on my machine than any other sim with similar features has previously. Steve
  7. Very cool - definitely my favorite Orbx airport and would love to see it in real life. Steve
  8. I, too, had given up on flight simming after ACES closure, but one day years later I decided to see if my FSX could be loaded on my $400 new PC used for everything but gaming. It worked, though at low settings, so I searched the Internet for the tree exclude file for the end of the default KORS I used to enjoy flying to that some nice fellow created for me. The file was gone, but a little blurb about Orbx KORS with photos came up. Needless to say I, too, have very happily spent time and hardware and software money ever since. And Orbx’s KORS Orca
  9. As I considered both the “ideal” bandwidth needs of an upcoming new simulator as well as my painfully slow download speeds when pulling down new Orbx goodies from OC (which stopped all internet for other purposes, much to my wife’s chagrin quickly followed by “Are you downloading an entire STATE again!?”), I began researching the problem. An online speed test and my modem’s app’s speed test both showed 19-22 Mbps, which seemed strange as entry level Internet speeds in our area (Wisconsin, USA) are 200 Mbps. I called our provider “Spectrum” and the friendly tech person e
  10. No idea how to fly helicopters, but glad to see some updates to this smooth running sim! Steve
  11. The Orbx TrueEarth product DOES spoil one for landclass, I’ll admit Carlos! The sensation of looking down and knowing that what you see is exactly what is there in reality (whether gorgeous natural beauty or anonymous industrial sprawl), especially with customized Orbx POIs added in, is amazing! It seems like only yesterday I was installing FS98 and just married - so much progress in flight simulation, but so much hair lost! Steve
  12. Hi Lars - I actually live in Wisconsin in the USA, but have been to Changzhou about 25 times for work and so am (somewhat) familiar with the area and have flown on China Eastern and Shanghai Airlines. RE: the scenery, I’d take the most accurate representation I can get...good landclass with select POIs perhaps - though I’ll admit that TrueEarth has made me addicted to photoscenery - it’s awfully fun to look down and see what is there reality, despite the high amount of file storage. Steve
  13. Very nice trip shots! Clear and colorful. I got to fly on a similar China Eastern A320 from Changzhou to Beijing this past January coming home from work there and interestingly they had all of us on just the left side of the plane shut our windowshades before takeoff!? Not sure what that was all about, but I believe the airport is shared with the military as I’ve seen an ancient Soviet jet bomber doing touch and gos and also spotted some big Soviet looking radial engined bush planes while taxiing. An interesting airline - I do like the registrati
  14. Lovely shots...I love my Spitfire and have even landed it successfully at least once so far Steve
  15. Nice shots Adam...B13 is working well for me too. What is the first British fighter pictured please? Looks like fun! Steve
