  1. Good evening everyone, I hope I've put this in the right place as it is kind of related to ORBX products.... How do the developers go about 'stitching' together such large areas of satellite imagery with differing resolutions? I'm looking at developing Pimba and possibly blending it into the Woomera township. I've used the image attached to give you an idea of what I mean. Cheers Jacko
  2. At the moment my set up is i7 7700 overclocked to 4.8 ghz, 32gb RAM and XP11 and Orbx TE products sit on their own SSD's. My graphics card is a 1050 ti. With this I can have most settings (at least the ones for TEGB ) set to the right. with this I can get anywhere between 18fps(London) and 35fps elsewhere. I do notice things a bit stutter when looking round in and out the cockpit. I am considering getting a new RTX2070 card (that's expensive enough ) in a nutshell, will I notice much difference? cheers Paul
  3. I'm slowly reaching the home stretch speccing out my next build, but now have run into a brick wall wrt SSD's. I plan to install my entire sim (P3DV?) with all addons on a separate dedicated SSD as was advised here by Doug Sawatsky. I was advised to use M.2 SSD with PCI-e (not SATA III) for speed. I was also told by my tech guy that max size available of this type of SSD is currently 2 TB ?. With Orbx's TE regions occupying large amounts of GB's - I feel I will fill up the 2TB's within a year or so. I heard there are other SSD options which provide more space ( 4TB for example ), but these are not as fast ? So how big a factor is drive speed ? I am OK with increased load times when starting the sim, but will a slower but higher capacity SSD also cause stutters in sim as the scenery is being loaded in during a flight ? The stutters during a flight is what I would like to avoid and definitely would be a concern for me. Thank-you, in advance for your expertise. Milan.
  4. Hi all, If I would like to be kitted out with the most accurate scenery (Archerfield, YBAF aerodrome and surrounding areas) to supplement my current pre-RPL flight training (just to practice/learn/familiarise where all the points of interest/reporting points are and area procedures), which scenery/addon packages (orbx or not) will I be needing for the current P3D V4.5 (I think)? Ideally enough detailed scenery to cover the Brisbane VTC, or at least the south part of that and north part of Gold Coast VTC. I do have Orbx Global, Orbx YBBN, Orbx YBCG, but that's it. Will "CityScene Gold Coast" cover from Jimboombaish area out to Straddie? Like including Logan area, Mt Gravatt, Mt Cotton etc, as well as all the major arterial roads/freeways? Or am I not looking in the right places? Thanks in advance Brendan
  5. Hi Can anyone tell if the Orbx aircraft are avaliable for PD3 V4.5 according to FTX Central I own all aircraft but cant get any. Also Is there any Cook Islands scenery on the way or any other 3rd Party stuff that works with ORBX Is there Aucckland NZ City Scenery etc Many thanks hope this was ok to post here Regards Cliff
  6. I downloaded Global Trees HD on 4-18-2015 at no cost ( offered as freeware) for FSX. I have since converted to P3D v 4.5. Under your May sale, you are offering Global Trees HD for a small cost (USD). What is the difference between the Global Trees HD I purchased in 2015 and the Global Trees HD you are offering this Month? Thanks!!
  7. I recently purchased PD3 V4 because my FSX crashed and has for some reason become uninstallable. My computer specs are: Win 10 64 bit V17134, Intel core i5 3330 cpu @ 3 GHx, Sys Memory 8GB, .I can run PD3 V4 on this machine but it doesn't run well. When I try to add ORBX products it basically shuts down or the ORBX product doesn't work well. If I buy P3D v3, will it run well with the ORBX products on this machine? Seems like all the PD3 V4 users have very high end machines. I just want a flt sim that can do about what FSX acceleration did. I've tried to research this question in several places, but haven't seen a direct answer to this question. I would appreciate any help anyone can provide.
  8. Hi guys Thank you for the madness sale but the one I would.like to buy which is sardinia is not on sale ? Any plans to do a deal on this product please ?
  9. I'm trying to track down a repaint for the Carenado PC12 in RFDS livery for FSX. Can anyone please help point me in the right direction? I seem to remember there being one on the aussiex site. I'm also trying to find some Australian repaints for the Alabeo C207 and PA31 Chieftain I would really appreciate it. Thanks! Markus
  10. 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!
  11. 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.
  12. I have this installed into XPlane but have never used it for anything. So do I really need it. Derek.
  13. 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 !! I recorded a short video: ViewSonic 4K Intel Core i7-8700K GIGABYTE Z370 AORUS ULTRA GAMING WIFI EVGA GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 HYBRID GAMING (2xSLI) Kingston KHX2666C16 32Gb Samsung SSD 970 EVO 1Tb Microsoft Windows 10
  14. 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.
  15. I am not sure if this is in the correct forum but I am looking for scenery for Scotland. Is this available or planned?
  16. 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.

  17. 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
  18. 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?
  19. 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 :-)
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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!
  24. 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.
