  1. Hello All,


    I am CTD while P3DV5 starts up. P3D V5 is not even able to load. The even log gives me this error:


    Faulting application name: Prepar3D.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5fb44f72
    Faulting module name: nvwgf2umx.dll, version:, time stamp: 0x60749ec6

    The fix for this is to go back to previous version of nvidia drivers. But I have a dual set up of P3DV5 and MSFS 2020. Going back to previous version of nvidia driver is a no go for me because if I do that MSFS 2020 takes a hit and that results in CTD with previous nvidia driver version. 


    My current NVidia driver version is 466.11.


    I am raising is on Orbx support portal as I am sure I am not the only one to have dual sim setup. Please of anyone is facing this issue or managed to solve it please let me know as mentioned going back to previous version is a no go for me.


    Thanks and please help!!!

    the UK World Update is a mess - my high end pc just keeps crashing to desktop in Flight Simulator (was fine before the update) and everywhere cathedrals and other significant landmarks remain missing. The buildings around Greenwich even on the loading screen aren’t even close to being as accurate as Orbx or Google Earth - the Isle of Dogs south of Canary Wharf (a very urban area) is now a forest of mis-sized trees!


    Please Orbx - release a TrueEarth England pack so we can actually get something worth using in MsFS


    I agree with David. The UK World Update is a mess. Even with 5Ghz overclocking I am hardly touching 20FPS and its a stutter fest. The center of London which has photogrammetry looks like a molten city as if hit by a nuclear weapon. At this point of time as is the performance is extremely bad and no matter how much Orbx optimize their new London City Pack, this is going to add more strain to the already poorly optimized London release.


    Also the blending of landmark with photogrammetry is something very much desired. Its not Orbx fault here. Orbx is doing a great job, but the hand placed landmarks especially standout in photogrammetry scenery which can be clearly made out while flying. Its like most of the photogrammetry is extremely dark and molten buildings and the hand placed landmarks are colorful and bright and they do not blend at all.


    I am sorry to say but is this the way we have imagined a sim to be where in we have molten structures with few hand placed structures in between that so not blend?

    Does Orbx have any plans to mitigate these issues?

    Once again I don't know the answer!! Although I note the Australia scenery was compiled by Forkboy on the Org store. I do not know if he has compiled this from the Lindeman orthos or not. It appears to be quite low quality at level 14 only.



    Thanks again for your reply. 

    Lyndiman has some UHD orthos for some parts of NewZealand such as Wellington and Queenstown which definitely look good in the pics posted in the site. Hence my conclusion is in that case both wont be the same.

    But downloading via torrent is a no go for me because there are hardly any seeders which is sad given such good quality scenery.


    I truly wish Orbx could do a True Earth style NewZealand at ZL17. It would be an instant hit for sure and day one purchase.

    Once you get a taste for a good ortho scenery its very hard to go back from there and at its current state MSFS 2020 is something to be desired (till they get the LOD right)

    Thanks again.

    @ AMS

    Fly Away Simulations ---New Zealand Complete Photoreal Scenery for X-Plane 11 (flyawaysimulation.com)

    Suggest that you takeout membership to get the faster downloads

    They do a good Aussie one - as well as the USA


    Thanks Fizzelle for your reply! Appreciate for taking the time out. I already have the flyawaysimulation NewZealand which I have downloaded (But haven't tried out yet)

    So now I am curious is the  flyawaysimulation NewZealand different from the Lindeman ortho for Australia  or are both the same? Please let me know incase you are aware. I do not want to download the same thing twice if its the same (since the download size is huge).


    Thanks again.

    Hi guys, I hardly use that new toy for reasons stated eloquently elsewhere. However I'm told that the new Orbx Australia for it is very good.


    The best NZ scenery is the Lindeman ortho and once you have it loaded compare Queenstown in FS against it. It's better by a long way. On the other hand, the aeroplanes suck! In my opinion to the extent I am not interested, that is.

    Hello Fizzle,


    I am downloading the Lindeman ortho for Australia via the torrent but the download is extremely slow and not many seeders. Are you aware of any other way to get Lindeman ortho with faster download speeds?

    No, it's the same.. Decals don't make things higher resolution, they just make it appear "bumpy" when closer to the ground... Orthos will never look high resolution or decent on the ground (at least anything our hardware can run today), so it's a hack as such to make it appear so (and something MFS also does)

    Ok thanks Tony for clarifying.  I love all your work and you are one of my favourite developers. 


    Thumbs up to your work and efforts. Both the islands are great!
