Hello,

 

I have only a short question about the installation ...........

How much space do the following products need after installation?

Global BASE Pack?

Global VECTOR?

Global openLC Europe?

since I have a little household with the space on my hard drive, I would be very interested in how much GB is needed.

And one more question ........... the packages are not really on the FPS of the simulator?

 

Many thanks for the help and info!

greeting

Heiko

Hello,

Global Base adds around 3 GB.

Global Vector around 13 GB.

Global Open LC EU around 26 GB.

 

You should see very little impact on frame rates, though Global Base adds

a bit more autogen.

Hello,

 

but I'm very surprised now! ............

that are then "only" 42 GB together for all three packs that would take the hard drive, which is so little for this size and beautiful textures.

Had good, together for all three expected 100 GB ............

So I'm doing very well with my calculated 50GB for this textures on my PC!

 

That would be perfect!

 

Thanks for your help!

 

greeting

Heiko

50GB will work for those, but if you want more ORBX (and I would wager that you will), 50GB is woefully short.  I have every ORBX product for P3D and it comes to just about 500GB.

I do not want to speak again, but in the first line I am concerned with these three packages and since I now know that I only need 42 GB, it is now certain that I will buy these days !.

 

Of course they are right! for the second but it is with me so that I have changed from FSX to P3D, since you know almost everything new (add-ons), it is quite expensive.

have for all 250 GB (SSD) for the simulator available, which was sufficient for FSX but the P3D is of course another house number. But I am thinking of putting an external SSD hard drive only for the P3D with 500GB, but now I would like to enjoy a new environment in the simulator!

But again a question ..........?

 

how is the order best if you have everything installed to have a suave picture and what is important to pay attention to when installing.

Think it's best this way:

1.P3D

2.Global BASE Pack

3.Global VECTOR

4.Global openLC Europe

5. All other add-ons like airports and planes.

Have already installed P3D and about five airports ........... but if everything reinstall to be sure!

The order is not important, what is important is to set the FTX insertion point in FTX Central so that all your non OrbX sceneries are above the FTX block. Set and save.

But Heiko, remember that ORBX sometimes needs the double amount of space to uzip the files. So if you unzip and install to the same HD you might end up in trouble. 

Open FTXCentral /Settings and select another location for the Temp Download Location.

but there will certainly be a precise Insterlations instructions for, so that one makes no mistakes or could do.

 

because it sounds so ........... even a bit complicated?

So I always load everything on a different drive (C), because I always unpack everything and then from there I install it in P3D (drive (D)).

so it remains so because then for total 42GB insterlation size on the drive where the P3D is, I'll openly download it on an external hard drive down what is meant for security.

Since one should go away from the DVD in the future, I always take everything together, even as a ZIP file without the computer load fully.

No Heiko, it is very simple. The  OrbX installation program (FTX Central) does everything for you after you bought an OrbX  scenery including setting the OrbX stuff in the right order.  You don't have to worry about that.  What it doesn't do is to set the border between the OrbX and non OrbX  sceneries (insertion point). It is very important to check that the latter are above and that the insertion directly above the first OrbX product

"(insertion point). It is very important to check that the latter are above and that the insertion directly above the first OrbX product"

 

ok ......... that would have to be determined well, yes, I can not even picture of some but for all there is a solution.

Good morning Heiko

 

There is no riule. It depends very much on the strength of yout computer (CPU & GPU), the  aircraft and other addons (weather for instance) that you run  and... your taste.

 

The sliders are here for you to try. Put them 75% to the right and, depending on what you see (smoothness, prettiness) move them to the left or to the right. Same approach for the options to check. Check what you like (reflections etc) and verify if you like what you see. All this is very subjective.

 

Global and OpenLC are not very demanding. Vector a little bit more according to some.

Hello,

 

Of course, this is always dependent on the PC, where I have increased my memory from 16GB to 32GB even before buying the P3D. Just try everything in peace to get the "perfect" attitude for me (just the FPS).

 

What I definitely have add-ons or rather would like to buy, of course, are the aviators from PMDG (737,777,747) and also the Airbus family from Aerosoft! At Airports must still look, have determined 50 add-ons from the FSX rumligen, which can not be used for the most part or with a lot of effort but install ....................? In ten years of FSX, one or the other has already accumulated, as is now such a change not easy but better.

 

But will the week still because P3D Uninstall and put on new, so I have a clean simulator for the three packages and then piece by piece install the add-ons. Think that is best because there is not much on it anyway, so it is worthwhile to play everything from scratch, without much effort!

 

But I will not be able to install everything this week, except for P3D and the three Orbx packs that I want, then look how it fits in time and how it all works out with my new simulator.

 

Will write in any case, since the one or the other question will arise and yes I can confidently turn to you!

 

best regards

Heiko
