  1. I'm using P3D 4.4. Issue: When not-paused, P3D only shows GPU usage at ~64% to 80% and 30 FPS in the LAX area. When paused, however, P3D shows GPU usage at 100% and approx 44 FPS in the LAX area. Troubleshooting accomplished: With OrbX Vector, Global, and SoCal still installed, I deleted Prepar3D folders in %appdata% and %ProgramData%. This disabled all scenery, addons.cfg, dll.xml, exe.xml. With this configuration, I was able to get 100% GPU usage consistently in both paused and non-paused modes, fixing the FPS issue. However, this would not show OrbX scenery. I then "Force Migrated LC" within FTX to get OrbX scenery up and running again. This replicated the issue. Question: Are there any optimizations going on in the background causing a lower GPU usage? What files does Force Migration actually change so I may try to isolate further? Thank you!
  2. I think the only orbx product for XP Australia at the moment is YBRM Broome International, which is beautiful. More orbx stuff for Australia is expected in future and eagerly awaited and I am sure we will all buy them then. In the meantime we can use the free default airports that come with XP and the many freeware custom airports available on the Org Forum. XP 11.33b1 is now available and, besides a lot of de-bugging, it adds a very large number of new and updated airports around the world including several updated ones in Australia. But despite all that, I still want more orbx Australia stuff! Cheers.
  3. I have this installed into XPlane but have never used it for anything. So do I really need it. Derek.
  4. Today a friend came to me and brought an external SSD with X-Plane + TE GB. I ran the simulator on my computer and wow! No stuttering! The picture is smooth and uniform. Perfect! With high settings with shadow and anti-aliasing. Processor and video card almost fall asleep)) I want also in Prepar3D !!

  5. Sorry if this is a truly stupid question. There is no reason why the next two releases for True Earth GB should not be the same size as that of GB South, but having little technical understanding of these things I just wondered if the other two might be, for whatever reason, smaller? - I ask, of course, because I'm running out of space.
  6. I am not sure if this is in the correct forum but I am looking for scenery for Scotland. Is this available or planned?
  7. When I uninstalled and reinstalled P3Dv4 about a month ago I just moved all my addons (FSDT, Flightbeam, FTX, Megascenery and many others) out of the P3D folder and then moved them back once P3D was installed. P3D found the ones with xml entries, FTX Central found the Orbx scenery and some I had to add manually. The end result was that my frame rates plummeted. Where I was getting 50-100+ frames in FSDT, Flightbeam and FTX sceneries when I first started using P3Dv4 when it was first released I'm now averaging about 5 fps. I have my frame rate set at 30 but if I change to Unlimited they jump to 11-25. I'm wondering if I should just start from scratch and reinstall P3D and each addon one at a time. I don't know if it was my short cut method of moving my scenery that caused the problem but it seems like a system with my specs should perform much better than it is now. The FTX installers put FTX scenery in the P3Dv4 folder but I was wondering if its possible to install them to a dedicated drive or if that would even help performance. All my megascenery is on two other drives.

  8. This doesn't just have to do with KPSP, but it's late and that's the only piece of graphical interactive artwork I can think of at the moment. The root question is, will there be SODE jetway implementation in your current and future airport projects that have...err...jetways? Thanks, Mark
  9. My X-plane installation uses a Multichannel projector system running one PC as the host and three more for the Projectors. Would I therefore need four licences to use your new TrueEarth Great Britain South terrain?
  10. This old file works well to place a beautiful rendition of Salisbury Cathedral. https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/6124-southern-uk-scenery-msfs-conversion/ Enjoy :-)
  11. Hello, To fly with FSx accélération, (not steam) VFR in France what does it really between: I see : FTX global base pack FTX global vector FTX global open europe FTX area but she is or France ????? To try, can I download a freeware without anything else or a demo with nothing else? Will everything be usable on P3D later ?? If you can give me a hand it would be clearer to me Thank you for the answer
  12. Just looked up Sandane on my Skydemon.... 6000 ft IAF, and a 5.4 degree glideslope.... Awesome, makes Narvik look pedestrian .... ! Have some money, and keep 'em coming.
  13. I went out in a flight around Rotterdam and although I’ve had this scenery a while now I just wanted to encourage anyone relatively new to flight sim to realise just how far we have come with this wonderful piece of work. This scenery is absolutely magnificent, it makes me want to go get a 2TB SSD. to put as many asuch sceneries as I can in there. Back in FS2004 we considered FS9 to be a great achievement, and it was. It was leagues ahead of what had gone before and there are still people who are loyal to that platform even if they generally modify with various add ons. When FSX appeared it constituted another leap forward though we all suffered stutters and blurries and God knows what else in getting it to work. But when I am able to fly over TrueEarth Netherlands now I am awestruck at this incredible piece of work. It is a technical accomplishment but also an aesthetic one, it is frankly beautiful and I think it wouldnt hurt any of us to stand back and appreciate the healthy state our hobby has emerged into. Long may it continue. Neil.
  14. Hello everyone. Not sure if this is the right sub forum but I have several questions. I built a new machine. 16 core threadripper 1950x, 32GB of Ram, GTX1080, water cooled, etc. I can basically max out or be at least 80 % of full settings. However, on one particular aircraft I cannot. And that is the the FSLabs A-320-X. One thing I learned was that when I scale back from 7CM to 30CM to 60CM and eventually 1M texture resolution the FPS jumps up and most importantly for me the smoothness of the sim balances out. I noticed the stutters get shorter and shorter and eventually almost gone at 1M resolution. Mesh resolution at 5M and scaling that back doesn't change anything. I have ORBX everything basically and I would like to learn more about what I lose when I go higher in texture resolution. Yes, I have read many threads, articles, etc but can't find any data on the major differences. This is obviously high altitude flights and when I do GA the almost max settings work fine with the GA aircraft. Now reading through the ORBX manuals the settings recommended vary but using KEGE for example it says 30Cm and 1M resolution scenery. So the question is if I set for the other aircraft I fly 30cm resolution and 1M for the A320X will that be sufficient to enjoy the visuals of the airports and ORBX scenery? Thanks for reading and your input!
  15. Hi all, having bought global base and trees am seeking advice on what to buy, eu england and europe lc or vector, on fsx se, thanks.
  16. Found this in my inbox, but can't find any mention here, is it happening? https://www.airdailyx.net/article/orbx-introduces-ybcg-gold-coast-airport/ Steve S
  17. Re installing FSX Gold. I finally solved the blurring problem I was having and so far so good except my Menu bar. Help needed...Anthin. Screen pic below.
  18. After much waiting on downloads (20 hours in my case), everything nevertheless installed properly and I took my first flight. First reaction: this is mind-blowing! the detail in phenomenal, better than anything else anywhere! My second reaction: Right! I want this for all my orbx countries. Third Reaction: Bugger me! How many GB's, TB's would that take up? So my question is, is there to be a policy of re-doing all with true Earth?
  19. This is my first to download and install! and with orbx and some other addon airports Meaning http://www.aero.sors.fr/navaids3.html updating??

  24. Hello, as now Bob and Ezdok finally working world cameras offer combined a very good reason to happily explore and loiter into airports, I've resumed my Orbx products (YMML, YSCB, YBCS, YBBN, YPEC, YBAS, YBUD) which I bought in the past more for support and so far I had been using very very little (I even forgot to have them, except for YMML) my two questions (as non expert and with little time to dedicate to the sim in depth): 1 to see life in the smaller less crowded ones: must I install Orbx freeware AI AU/NA package? may I do it on top of MyTraffiX60a? 2 can you suggest one or more specific Orbx general aviation airport for purchase, featuring more traffic than the ones I have? thanks
